There is no doubt that Cookie Lyon is on the naughty list. But her alter-ego is nothing but nice and funny! It’s almost time for Taraji P. Henson’s “White Hot Holidays Special.”
Taraji P. Henson is back! Now she’s hosting her “White Hot Holiday Special” on FOX.
Taraji P. Henson: “It’s Christmas and everyone needs to be gathered around the television watching my television show. It’s a family show.”
Her “Empire” co-star’s Jussie Smollet and Taye Diggs are helping out with the gig.
Taye Diggs: “I’m performing, on it, singing. Alongside, Tyrese and Neo.”
Yup, Diggs doesn’t just act — he sings, too.
Singer Neo and Tyrese Gibson joing Mr. Diggs on stage, performing a holiday medley. Now, that’s one hot trio.
Tyrese Gibson: “We about ready to do something to really inspire everyone. I got my daughter with here, to really show some love for Christmas.”
Henson says you can expect a lot of music: Superstars Pharrell, Missy Elliot, Alicia keys and Snoop Dogg are part of the line-up, too.
Snoop Dogg: “I don’t really see this kind of television on television. I love being apart of events that are very cheerful — that bring the Christmas spirit out of you.”
Although “Empire,” the show Henson stars on as Cookie Lyon, is short on comic relief, her holiday special will not be…
Taraji P. Henson: “You will see Chris Rock and Madea and me! That’s all you need to see.”
Taraji and friends get us into the holiday spirit in about three minutes, right after Deco here on 7.
