  1. Ilene this was a very fun “chat” and quite insightful. Surprised to hear that Taraji was scared of “Cookie”. Glad she overcame that because she portrays Cookie as FEARLESS!

  2. Braylon Lee says:

    Does Lucious have a sister and will apex radio be a storyline where ankia can come back into the fold or a live events division for empire?
