Her own attempt to make a crossover comeback and her unwillingness to shy away from controversy will have ripple effects throughout Empire.

Rumer joins the list of guest stars for the current season of the hip hop sudser which include: Mariah Carey, Taye Diggs, Birdman and French Montana.

No word yet as to Willis’ first airdate on Empire, but one would expect her to appear after the midseason finale.

Rumer impressed me with her strong work ethic and talent on DWTS and on Broadway. I look forward to seeing her on Empire.

So I think the powers that be should knock off the anti Semitic digs. We have the Jewish consultant who says to him, when he disagrees with her opinion…”I thought ‘you people’ we’re good at business.” In episode six we’re introduced to a geeking guy with a Jewish last name who’s supposed to be a computer genius. Lucious: (referring to the character’s last name…”Is that Bissowitz or Piiowitz?” At the board meeting regarding an email scandal…Andre to board member…”how ’bout I tell about the member who paid for sex…” Lucious: “You mean Papa Bernstein?” Love the double standard. Cut it… Read more »

Geeky not geeking

You gotta consider the voices heard part of Lee Daniels…have you seen old Loony Tune cartoons from back in the day? Hollywood didn’t even bother to mask it’s bigotry. In one cartoon the train or bus stops in lazy town and every character is coal black with big red lips..bones in the nose and saying things like i’ll buss yo haid…it’s more i think a here’s what we feel like when we see and hear what others fail to..jmo

Hi davlestev1… Yes, we’re all aware of racism that went on back in the day and how black people were portrayed. As we can see from the Trump campaign thru today, hate is very much alive and well. Hate toward Jews never went away…maybe just got buried a tiny bit. There’s a lot of anti semitism sprouting up. Jewish students are getting beaten up on college campuses around the nation because of opposing views on Israel. I particularly resent anti semitism from the black community and I think there needs to be some education about the Jewish culture and how… Read more »

‘Empire’ Star, Jussie Smollett, Sentenced to 150 Days In Jail For Fake Hate Crime Attack

Late Thursday, former Empire actor and singer, Jussie Smollett, was sentenced in Chicago more than three months after being found guilty on five felony counts to the alleged 2019 hate crime hoax that made national headlines, and got the actor fired from the former Fox primetime drama series.

In the sentencing, Smollett was sentenced to 150 days starting immediately.  In addition, he received 30 months’ probation, and has to pay the city of Chicago $120,106 in restitution, plus Jussie received an additional $25,000 fine.

Cook County Judge James Linn, who levied the sentence, came down hard in his words on Smollett due his actions noting he was, “selfish, arrogant and narcissistic.”  The judge added, “You wanted to make yourself more famous throwing a national pity party for yourself. You’re just a charlatan, pretending to be the victim of a hate crime.”

Linn went in on Smollett for his ‘performance’ and ‘pure perjury’ when the actor took to the witness stand in his own defense last year.

At the end of his sentencing, Smollett pulled down his mask to speak. He then let everyone in the courtroom know that he feels he is innocent, adding, “Your honor, I respect you and I respect the jury, but I did not do this. And I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself. And you must all know that.”

Just before he was taken into custody, Smollett yelled again that he was innocent and raised a fist in the air as he exited.

Watch the sentencing of Jussie Smollett below, then weigh-in.  Did Smollett get enough of a sentence for his crime? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

Ex-‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Found Guilty On Five Counts For Hate Crime Hoax

Jussie Smollett (Ex-Jamal Lyon) from Fox’s former primetime soap opera, Empire, was found guilty on Thursday on five of six felony counts of disorderly conduct stemming from making a false report to the Chicago police department that he was the victim of a hate crime.

The actor’s account of the story dates back to 2019 and finally made its way to the Chicago court system for trial.

In the end, a jury of six men and six women deliberated for more than nine hours Wednesday and today to return the verdict after sitting through testimonies of 13 witnesses.

According to reports, Smollett did not look at his family or the judge during the reading of the verdicts on the six counts he was charged instead he looked at the jury members.

Smollett could face up to 3 years in a prison and a $25,000 fine, Judge James Linn will have discretion in imposing a concurrent or consecutive sentence for each count.  That will happen at a later date.

Special prosecutor Dan Webb said at a post-verdict news conference: “Mr. Smollett would not have lost this case as he did today unless the jury found that he lied to them. The fact that he came up with a completely ridiculous story to explain his misconduct did not apparently have an impact on the jury’s verdict.”

During the trial brothers, Bola and Ola Osundairo testified that Smollett had paid them to stage the hate crime attack on him in an attempt to get media attention.  The brothers testified that they fake punched Smollett, poured bleach on him, put a noose around his neck and used racist and homophobic slurs, because Jussie told them to do so in return for the money.

According to Smollett’s defense team, they will appeal the verdict.

So, what do you think about the guilty verdict for Jussie Smollett? Comment below.
