Lee Daniels and Danny Strong's hip-hop drama series Empire features a very talented cast yet Taraji P. Henson has set herself apart through her award-winning performance as Cookie Lyon.  The show's record-breaking first season created a social media frenzy making "Cookie" a household name.

Cookie From Empire Quotes
Cookie From Empire Quotes
Taraji P. Henson was USA Today's choice for Entertainer of the Year for her role as Cookie Lyon on the Empire TV show.  Cookie's one-liners and untouchable swag have led Empire to the top.  2015 marked the year that Henson introduced the world to one of the most unforgettable characters to grace television in years.

Loretha "Cookie" Lyon (née Holloway) was born in Philadelphia, PA.  Cookie has two sisters, Carol (Tasha Smith) and Candace (Vivica A. Fox).  In Empire's first season, Cookie is released from prison seven years earlier than her sentence required.  Cookie spent seventeen years in prison for her involvement in a drug deal gone wrong.

The drug deal that landed Cookie in prison also earned her $400,000 which she gave to her ex-husband Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard).  Lucious is a former thug who used the money to start Empire Entertainment.

Cookie sees herself as the sacrificial lamb who built Empire Entertainment with Lucious and she believes she deserves a substantial piece of the company.  Cookie and Lucious have three sons:

The Real Cookie Lyon
Last year, 53 year old Sophia Eggleston filed a $300 million lawsuit against Fox, Lee Daniels and Danny Strong accusing them of stealing her life story for their hit show.

The Detroit resident explains that she was a drug kingpin who wrote an autobiography during her time in prison for manslaughter.  Eggleston claims she traveled to LA in 2011 to meet screenwriter Rita Miller.  Eggleston gave Miller a copy of her book and Miller shared the book with Lee Daniels.


Co-founder of Death Row Records, Lydia Harris, has also been referred to as 'The Real Cookie Lyon'.  Similar to Cookie, Harris was instrumental in the founding of a major hip-hop label and she also had to fight in order to get what she deserved.

In 2005, Harris won a $107 million lawsuit against Suge Knight vindicating her claim that she used $1.5 million from her husband, Michael "Harry-O" Harris to start Death Row.  Knight approached Harry-O while he was incarcerated leading Harry-O's attorney to set up Godfather Entertainment, a parent company for Death Row.  Harry-O's wife, Lydia, represented him in the company while he was locked up.

While many females have claimed to be the real Cookie Lyon a few men have also attempted to prove they are actually Empire's leading lady.  The following video shows James Corden's encounter with Taraji P. Henson outside the audition room:


Cookie Lyon Costume
James Corden isn't the only male with Cookie-dreams.  Live! With Kelly and Michael co-host, Michael Strahan dressed as Cookie Lyon for Halloween which was interesting considering the fact that he is Taraji's former bae.

Last year, VH1 reported that Henson and Strahan were seen together at the Mandarin Oriental in New York.  While we think the two would make a great couple, their busy schedules make it impossible.  According to Bossip, sparks popped off between the two when Henson sat in for Kelly Ripa on Live! With Kelly and Michael.


Strahan's Cookie costume was unforgettable but he wasn't the only Cookie Lyon this Halloween.  Buying a costume can be expensive so many Empire fans decided to shop in their closets instead to create their own costumes inspired by Cookie Lyon:

Good Morning America's Robin Roberts' Cookie Lyon costume was unforgettable this past Halloween!  The newscaster teamed up with T.J. Holmes who dressed up as Lucious Lyon:

We didn't need Halloween and 'The Real Cookie Lyonto prove that everybody wants to be Cookie Lyon.  Mo'Nique's fued with Lee Daniels also shows how much people adore Empire's leading lady:


Last year, Lee Daniels claimed that Mo'Nique had been blackballed from Hollywood due to her diva antics throughout the filming of Precious.  This led to a "he said, she battle" involving whether Mo'Nique was ever offered the role as Cookie Lyon.

Mo'Nique visited Sway's radio show where she presented emails from Lee Daniels' team asking her to provide a screen test, before they later announced the deal was dead.  The feud arose after Mo'Nique alleged that Daniels promised her the role of Cookie Lyon and the role that Oprah played on The Butler.

Mo'Nique has made it clear that she is proud of Henson's success and Taraji has not responded to the matter.  While Henson may have handled the situation in a professional manner we are guessing Cookie Lyon would have responded a bit differently...

While Hollywood fights over Cookie Lyon, Lee Daniels has set the record strait explaining to Vogue that the character is actually based on his grandmother.  Daniels says his grandmother was a gangster from Philadelphia who convinced blacks to vote in the sixties and seventies.

The award-winning producer remember his grandmother on the phone with Frank Rizzo, the former mayor of Philadelphia.  "Mother-----, you better come down here with my money before I shoot yo ass."  To celebrate International Women's Day, Daniels shared the following image of his grandma, Grace H. Daniels with Muhammad Ali:


Taraji P. Henson landed the role as Cookie Lyon 30 seconds into her audition.  Lee Daniels didn't need to see anymore of Henson's audition to make a decision.  Empire fans certainly support Daniels' decision! There's something in the way Henson moves that forces people to fall in love with the award-winning actress as proven by the following Cookie Lyon gifs:
