Taraji P Henson Fired From Empire, False Alarm

Another day, another false report involving a member of the Empire cast. E! News explains that we shouldn't believe everything we hear about the show.  We recently explained that the rumors about Jussie Smollett being fired were false and this article will discuss Ms. Cookie Lyon.


The Fox hip-hop drama series achieved a high level of success in a short period of time.  As a result, haters gonna hate.  Let's go through some of the false shade that has been sent Cookie's way.

Cookie finally seems to be over Lucious in season 3 and we don't blame her! It's looking like she'll give Angelo Dubois (Taye Diggs) a chance at her heart.  It has to be difficult for Cookie to trust people after what happened with Laz (Adam Rodriguez) but Angelo doesn't seem like he's up to anything sneaky.  

In celebration of the fact that she's not going anywhere, let's take a look at her Top 10 quotes of the show's third season:

Terrence Howard
Henson and Terrence Howard met before she became Cookie Lyon.  Howard remembers when Cookie looked like the around-the-way girl in the image above.

The tabloids took advantage of their opportunity to spread lies about the two finally being fed up with each other.  People explains that Taraji P. Henson posted the following video via Instagram in order to squash rumors about her and Terrence Howard feuding off camera.



The following video shows the dynamic duo laughing off rumors suggesting that they didn't get along.  They've known each other for a very long period of time.  While we're sure they've had a disagreement or two, we know they wouldn't let anything ruin the record-breaking show.


Gabrielle Union
Shortly after the Terrence Howard rumors were denied, false reports about Gabrielle Union replacing Henson on the show were published.  While we love Gabrielle, the rumors were false.  The rumors suggested that Taraji was fired after she demanded a pay increase.  Her salary issues are discussed in the next section.

Salary
The Hollywood Reporter explains that Fox's TV executives gave the entire cast Rolex watches.  The watches may seem like a thoughtful gift but we are certain that Taraji would rather have the pay raise she requested before the show's first season.
