Taraji P. Henson stopped by the studio to discuss her new partnership with chocolate brand Kinder Bueno. While there, the Empire star also dished on the last season of Empire– and the possibility of a reunion show.

Henson also chatted about her upcoming Netflix project and wedding in 2020.

Check out the full interview below…


If you couldn’t manage to stay awake during the Golden Globes last night, no worries, we’ve got your exclusive recap – from the highlights, lowlights, fashionable moments and winners…




USA TODAY recently named Taraji P. Henson Entertainer of the Year (in 2015), for her role as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s hit series, Empire.

Apparently humbled by the honor, Taraji went onto Twitter, writing:

“WOOOOOOOW!!!! Thank you @usatoday so honored!!! #WhatAYear #MoreToCome cause #GodIs and that is all that I know!”

And yes, 2016 – may indeed be Taraji’s — or shall I say Cookie Lyon’s year, but I question if I’m still really sold on the hip-hop drama, the stereotypes, and the over acting to tell a story.

Are these things really worth a golden globe win….



“Think Like a Man,” the romantic comedy based on best selling author, and comedian Steve Harvey’s  book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” is set to hit theaters in two weeks. On Wednesday, April 4th the actors, director, and producer did double duty at a mid-day press reception, and screening. (more…)

During her sit down with Wendy, Taraji addressed a number of topics from who she linked up with and why she chooses to keep her personal life private. You can watch the visual from the episode below. Black people don’t crack at all! Can you imagine this lovely actor is 41!

On Dating Tyrese

Not all all – ever. I promise you. If I did I would tell [you]. First of all, I am a horrible liar, these big ole’ eyes will tell on me. Oh gosh. I can’t lie’.

If Tyrese and I crossed that line the love wouldn’t be there. The chemistry wouldn’t be there because Taraji and Tyrese did it.

On dating Common

Okay I’ll tell you the truth, Common and I did date. All the rest no.

On rumors that she dated Drake

Drake was a friend. It was cute because I knew he liked me and I kept looking at him like ‘If you were ten years older, boy whew’ but no. I couldn’t because he is seven years older than my son.

On Terrence Howard

Terrence and I never ever [dated]. Here’s my thing, I don’t mix business with pleasure and I’m saying this to the young girls out there that want to get into the business. Whatever you do in your private life should be just that, private. If you are a hoe, girl be a hoe behind the scenes because if you are having sex with them, why would they want to work with you again? Think about it.

John Singleton is well aware of the “if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it” theory as the director is set to released another film starting “Baby Boy” actors Tyrese and Taraji P. Henson.

According to Tyrese, the trio will work together in something “quite interesting”.

Tyrese first broke the news via twitter saying:

“Official…Me and my girl Taraji are doing another classic together soon!! John Singleton will be directing us. And no it’s not BB2″

Although Tyrese and Taraji have been known to support each other on and off the screen, the singer emphasizes that it’s all platonic. He claims nothing romantic is going on and they’re just good friends. Ummmhmmm.

Full details on the upcoming film have not yet been released. Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.

Ms. Drama hits the “Black Girls Rock” red carpet to talk about why it’s important to have event that support black women. In the interview, Taraji talks about breaking the stereotype of black women not being supportive of one another, while BET’s CEO Debra Lee talks about black women’s role and upcoming programming. Finally supermodel Alek Wek’s talks about her upbringing and why black girls rock to her.
