Emmy-winning actress Lynn Whitfield has been cast in OWN’s megachurch drama series Greenleaf.

According to Deadline, the series Greenleaf will focus “on the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful. Greenleaf World Ministries is described as the center of the community for the thousands of predominantly African-American members who attend services there. But beneath its steeple lies a den of iniquity — greed, adultery, sibling rivalry and conflicting values — a multi-generational matrix of deception that involves the church’s founding family but also extends to the congregation and prominent members of the Memphis community and beyond. Yet, amidst all of the mayhem and deception, the power of something greater persists, calling everyone to conscience for their sins.”

Regular to Recurring? Is Empire (@EmpireFOX) Reducing Lucious Lyon’s Screen Time over Terrence Howard’s (@terrencehoward) Antics in Season 2?

Lucious Lyon is the King of Empire, but even kings can be toppled. It looks like both Lucious and the actor that portrays him, Terrence Howard are having some major issues with the women in their lives. Cookie and Anika teamed up to put Lucious behind bars, but in real life Terrence’s divorce drama and prior allegations of domestic violence have landed him in hot water. Fox’s solution, thankfully, is not to completely cut him from the show, but instead scale back his screen time. This leaves many fans wondering just how long will Lucious stay behind bars and the does this mean more screen time for Cookie?

The love fest between celebrity siblings, Kim and Rob Kardashian continues to run sweet and smoothly. As you may already know the two have been seen working out together and Rob has posted some of the cutest pictures of his niece, North West. The once quarrelsome siblings seem to have reached a new level of peace in their relationship as Kim has allegedly encouraged her brother to go to therapy, and Rob in turn has agreed to do so albeit it from the comfort of his own home. A source close to the siblings told Radar Online “Rob has been doing very intense therapy at home. He doesn’t ever want to work a program. None of them can work a 12 Step program, or anything public because it would hardly be anonymous…”

This in home therapy may work for the reclusive Kardashian brother. Everyone can agree Rob definitely needs help and however he gets it is okay with the public at large. Interestingly, there is speculation his decision to get his life together is related to Caitlyn Jenner’s introduction to the world and his sisters no longer having a father figure. “He wants to be the brother that was able to take care of his sisters like he promised his father he would before he died. Now that they do not have Bruce [Jenner] because Bruce is definitely Caitlyn, Rob needs to step up to the plate.”

We wish the best Rob, you can do it!

Gabourey Sidibe (@GabbySidibe) Gets A Boyfriend in Season 2 of Empire (@EmpireFOX)!

The cast of Empire’s second season will soon be large enough for an “empire” of its own. In latest news on the second season of the hit series we learn Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe, who portrays Lucious Lyon’s assistant, Becky, is getting a love interest! Yep Becky is giving the “Becky” to a newcomer, Mo McRae (Murder In The First, Battle Creek, Sons of Anarchy). Mo’s character, “J-Poppa” will not only be her love interest, but will have a strong connection to Andre Lyon (Trai Byers). A new character’s addition to any show like Empire always means a shake up to more critical characters. Someone is going to get hurt or sidetracked! Hopefully, it will not be Becky.

We predict J-Poppa will have one of three story lines/roles in the next season:

  1. He is an aspiring rapper trying to get signed with Empire Entertainment by by befriending and working for Andre.
  2. He is the son of Vernon, Lucious’ former right hand man, that Rhonda unwittingly killed trying to help Andre.
  3. He is a rival of Andre’s at Empire who falls for Becky.

Well we won’t know until September 23rd what Becky and J-Poppa have in store for us but we have no doubt it will be worth watching. After all, it’s Empire, and that show is NEVER dull!
