Mimi on Empire

Mimi on Empire is played by actress Marisa Tomei.  Mimi teaches us that we must never become complacent in a world where everyone is trying to get a piece of the pie.

Mimi Whiteman’s Empire takeover was planned by Camilla Marks, played by Naomi Campbell.  Camilla has returned for her former lover, Hakeem Lyon who is currently in love with Laura Calleros, played by Jamila Velazquez.

Cookie established a relationship with Mimi Whiteman, Empire Entertainment’s Chairman of the Board.  In the show’s Season 2 premiere Mimi immediately began playing the Lyon family like it was her job.

Marisa Tomei Movies

Marisa Tomei’s movies prove that life is full of ups and downs.  Without the downs, the ups would mean nothing.  Tomei’s role in the 1992 film ‘My Cousin Vinny‘ earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress’.  
Tomei followed her Oscar win with over 10-years of average movie roles that failed to display her full potential.  Tomei’s 2008 film, ‘The Wrestler’ forced the Academy to salute the actress again.
The Oscar-winning actress is also known for her roles in ‘Love Is Srange’, ‘In The Bedroom’ and ‘Wild Hogs’.  Similar to Mimi, Tomei has built an Empire of her own.
Mimi Whiteman, the lesbian finance tycoon, entered the Lyon’s den and took over.  Mimi was able to use her wisdom, experience and sophistication to defeat Lucious at his own game.
