Taraji P. Henson keeps it real.  That's the reason the world loves her and that's why we love Cookie Lyon.  We can all learn a valuable life lesson from Taraji P. Henson: Keep It Real Or Keep It Moving!



A couple of decades before playing Cookie on Empire Taraji P. Henson was on Sister Sister.  After moving to Los Angeles in 1996, Henson hit the ground running.  She worked an office job while auditioning for roles and eventually landed a part on the WB Television Network's Smart Guy.  She played Mo'Nique on the series from 1997 to 1998.


Taraji's role on Smart Guy led to her role on Sister Sister which also aired on The WB.  The show starred Tia and Tamera Mowry.  Tamera is currently a host on The Real and Tia was recently seen on Barbershop: The Next Cut.  The images below show Taraji on the show:

In her new book, Around The Way Girl, Henson discusses how hard she has had to work over the years.  The award-winning actress started from the bottom, moving to Los Angeles with only $700 to her name.  Henson also had her baby boy with her, Marcel.  When she first got to L.A. she lived in one of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods.

After speaking to a co-worker, she realized that she needed to move to a safer neighborhood.  Once she did so, she was able to focus on becoming a star.  Two decades later, Taraji has achieved her goals and can't be stopped!
