Today is the first Wednesday without a new episode of Empire and we are struggling. How will we get through the week without some new Cookie-isms to guide us? While we wait for season two, we might as well jump into the gossip surrounding the show and its stars — most notably, that certain actors are hooking up off screen. (With a cast this hot, it wouldn’t be a surprise.)
TMZ reports that Trai Byers and Grace Gealey (who play Andre Lyon and Anika “Boo Boo Kitty” Calhoun, respectively) recently attended a wedding together and were “super affectionate at times, but still conscious people were looking.” The accompanying video is less than convincing — then again they are actors, so maybe they’re just really good making things look platonic. On the other hand, everyone gets a little emotional (and/or drunk) at weddings, so a one-time hookup is not unheard of.
If it’s true, will things get awkward when the gang goes back to work (you know, since Anika has bedded both Lucious and Hakeem during season one)?
Empire, we miss you so much already.
And ICYMI, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Joseline believes she was the inspiration for Cookie.
