so empire is going to have a spinoff!
lee daniels just announced it,
but guess what talented actress he hired first?
you’ll never guess…
the trans-vixen with no prior acting experience but taking photos.
well according to tmz:
Amiyah Scott, the transgender woman who tried to get on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” is getting a bigger break now in Hollywood because she’s been cast in the “Empire” spin-off.
Amiyah didn’t make the ‘RHOA’ cut, but we’re told all the transgender ‘Housewife’ buzz got her a call from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels in late August asking to read for his new show.
Our production sources say Daniels loved Amiyah’s look and thought she’d be perfect for one of the singers in a girl group.
The spin-off is a prequel to “Empire,” showcasing a young Cookie Lyon.
We’re assuming her look was more important than her acting chops … she’s never acted before, but she’s getting a crash course with some acting coach hot shots.
i won’t even get into amiyah,
as i’m holding it all down my throat,
but does empire really need a spin off tho?
its only in it’s second season.
a season that was all over the place until the mid season finale.
i guess strike while the fire is hot?
lets hope the writers on that show pull it together.
i’m kinda not interested in a “cookie-prequel”,
but it may just be interesting.
lowkey: i guess transgenders will be replacing real vixens now?
you know when the media puts their claws in something,
they don’t let go until the public is sick of it.
like “the kardashians” or the “als ice bucket challenge”.
back to this spinoff…
i still play the wicked love interest to jamal in my head.
i’m not trying to be in it for 2 episodes tho.
“dora” was barely in it.
