Golden Globe winning actress Taraji P. Henson is on the promo trail for the return of the hit series “Empire” making a stop on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last night.
The “Empire” starlet is on trend rocking fringe that we’ve noticed many celebs have been styling in lately. The 45-year-old actress slayed in a black Alexander Wang ensemble and fringe sandals serving biker girl chic.
The YBF chick chopped it up with Jimmy Fallon about “Empire” making its return to FOX on March 30th.
As for those “sleeping on the set” videos her co-star Jussie Smollett love to post on social media, Taraji got the ultimate revenge. The award winning actress jokingly said she’s too “grown” to partake in such childish activities, but then pulled out a prank of her own. She revealed she keeps an arsenal of videos of Jussie "sleep on the job" and decided to unveil one last night. She got him good!

Also hitting the late night TV circuit....
Upcoming “Underground” actress Jurnee Smollett Bell and her husband Josiah Bell were spotted racing inside a L.A. studio for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Such a gentleman.
Jurnee posed it up outside of her dressing room before hitting the stage.
After stopping by the White House for a screening of her new show a few days ago, the YBF actress is now on the promo trail for the upcoming slave drama series “Underground.” The YBF chick dished on what fans can expect before the show premieres March 9th at 10/9c on WGN America.
During her interview, she also talked about growing up in showbiz with her siblings. She said after a recurring role on “Family Matters,” ABC studio execs wanted to give Jurnee her own spin-off show, but her mom rejected the idea. She said her mom was exhausted with 5 kids in the entertainment industry and said the only way she would agree to another series is if all of her children could star on one show.
For the audition, Jurnee revealed she and her siblings performed Public Enemy's "Shut 'Em Down" together. Ha! It must have worked because they all nabbed a role on the sitcom “On Our Own.”
Later, she talked her unique name and how people are constantly pronouncing it wrong.
