Mariah Carey Debuts On EMPIRE!

Multi-Grammy winning superstar, Mariah Carey makes her appearance on Fox’s sudsy Empire (9PMET/8CT) tonight!  Mariah plays the role of  Kitty – a hit singer – brought in by none other than Cookie (Taraji P, Henson) to team with her son Jamal on a hot new duet.

Problem is … Jamal (Jussie Smollett) is getting addicted to painkillers which gives Jussie Smollett meaty story material during Empire’s new season.

In the clip released to promote Carey’s guest-star turn, she is seen in studio trying to cut the duet with Jamal, but he struggles, and Kitty (Mariah Carey) wants to just get the song in the can.  The duet “Infamous” is indeed a new single duet from Carey and Smollett, to boot.

Watch the clip from Empire after the jump.  Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Mariah on Empire Wednesday night in the comment section below, and if you like the musical icon guest appearances on the primetime soaps!

Have a good one.


This season of Empire is really great..
So far, it is the best season… luv empire!


I have not watched one episode of EMPIRE. I never had an interest, albeit, I hear it’s very populat. Nah, su, not for me.
But, Carey on the show? Why? She’s everywhere.


I am sooooo not liking Empire. Glorified gangsters…like they’re just too cool to live. And when someone dies…like Rhonda? No biggie…just another day in the hood….

Now “Ray Donovan.” THAT’S a show that has violence but doesn’t glorify it…complex characters, relationships, smart dialogue, quirky characters slap Jon Voight…just an amazing show. Oh, and zi don’t need to have The BLM in my “entertainment.


Sigh…ala Jon Voigt…not slap. I not zi.


Um….this is sure a sad time in TV’s Empire. I gave it yet another chance during some marathon and can’t see the hoopla. But this episode Carey I have to laugh is wearing a bodysuit with fishnet’s on in the recording booth.


EMPIRE Renewed For Season 5!

The Lyon family drama lives on!  News today from Michael Thorn, entertainment president for Fox Broadcasting, confirmed that Empire has been officially renewed for its fifth season!

With only four episodes left in its fourth season, and the Upfronts in New York in just a few weeks previewing the  2018-2019 season for advertisers, this was the perfect time to reveal the pick-up for the sudsy musical drama series.

In his statement, Thorn said of the series: “Empire is as compelling, emotional and unpredictable as it ever was. We are so proud of our amazing cast, led by Terrence and Taraji, who deliver powerful performances week after week. We’d also like to thank our tremendous creative team – Lee, Danny, Brett, Ilene, Sanaa, Brian and Francie – whose inspired storytelling continues to create the unforgettable, jaw-dropping OMG moments that have always been signature to Empire.”

Although the once huge Wednesday juggernaut has slid significantly in the ratings in 14 episodes this season, the show is averaging a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demo and 5.8 million total viewers — down 31% and 24%, respectively from last season, the series is the network’s second most watched in multi-platform viewing, averaging 11.3 million viewers.

There was no confirmation of how many episodes will be ordered for the fifth season of Empire, but it is says to be most likely 18. (more…)

When Empire star, Taraji P. Henson (Cookie) took to the 90th Oscars Red Carpet on Sunday, and chatted with E’s Ryan Seacrest, the Twitterverse assumed she had dissed him during their on-camera conversation given the allegations that surfaced from his ex-stylist claiming he subjected her to “years of unwanted sexual aggression.”

E! previously announced that after an independent investigator was hired to look into her claims that they found “insufficient evidence” of any wrongdoing by Seacrest.  The usual Oscars red carpet coverage by Seacrest seemed to be hindered where he was only able to chat with over a dozen people.

When Henson talked with Seacrest she touched him under his chin and said, “You know what? The universe has a way of taking care of the good people. You know what I mean?””  Later Henson clarified that she was actually telling Ryan to keep his chin up when she spoke with PEOPLE.

Taraji revealed she “absolutely” supports Seacrest, adding the touch on the chin was done because: “I did it to keep his chin up. It’s an awkward position to be in. He’s been cleared, but anyone can say anything.”  There was more to the Seacrest and Henson exchange that people didn’t initially see, which ended in a hug.

Adding fuel to the original diss was following her conversation with Seacrest, Henson told ABC’ s Wendi McLendon-Covey, “I’m great now that I’m in your company,”  (more…)
