Taye Diggs Shows Off His Bare Butt in Revealing Instagram Pic

27 May 2017 1:34 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Taye Diggs is probably following you on Twitter, but you should really be following him on Instagram.

On Friday, the 46-year-old actor got personal for his 213,000 followers on the popular social media platform — revealing his bare behind in a scandalous mirror selfie.

The photo, shared on his Instagram Story, came with no caption or explanation. In it, he wears just a grey short-sleeve T-shirt (tied in a knot in the back), silver chain, black fedora, and a smile.

Hours later, he deleted the image. Digg’s most recent shot is a pic of he and model girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown. »

Empire Finale Recap: Was It an Unforgettable End to Season 3?

24 May 2017 6:59 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Roughly 15 minutes into Empire‘s Season 3 finale on Wednesday it’s revealed that Andre and Shyne are planning to murder Lucious not with a bullet but with a bomb. What’s more, the I.E.D. is slated to be detonated outside of an event space (in this case a casino) following a musical performance. The eerie and, of course, unintended parallel to this week’s horrific terror attack in Manchester was impossible to ignore, and it remained so as the episode built to the inevitable, explosive climax. Should Fox have pulled — or at the very least tweaked — the episode in light of recent events? »

‘Empire’ Kills off Another Cast Member — and Who’s the Murderer? (Spoilers)

17 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the episode of “Empire” which aired on Wednesday, May 17.

“Empire” is no stranger to saying goodbye to major characters, and the Fox show did it again, killing off the main antagonist of Season 3: Tariq (Morocco Omari), who was stabbed in the neck by none other than Lucious’ mother, Leah Walker (Leslie Uggams.)

Earlier in the episode, Lucious (Terrence Howard) and his half-brother Tariq had finally made up, after a long history of hating each other. Lucious enlisted Tariq’s help to find his granddaughter, Hakeem’s (Bryshere Gray) baby girl, Bella, and Tariq was successful in finding her — with the Dubois family, a.k.a. Cookie’s (Taraji P. Henson) former flame, Angelo (Taye Diggs), and his nutso mother, Diana (Phylicia Rashad).

Moments before Wednesday’s episode ended, Tariq sat down with Lucious to tell him that he found Bella, who »

Empire Season 3 Episode 14 Review: Love is a Smoke

26 April 2017 7:15 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It looked like Cookie Lyon was all set to move on from the decades-long rollercoaster ride that was her relationship with Lucious and start over with a new man – the kind of man her disappointed daddy dreamed she'd end up with, before he died.

Even Lucious agreed to give Cookie his blessing to marry New York mayoral candidate Angelo Dubois, though not without a few caveats – mainly, that their relationship, while perhaps less tumultuous and toxic, would never rival what Cookie and Lucious had. 

Cookie sat her boys down for a family meal to inform them of the likelihood of Angelo's proposal. Jamal, her biggest cheerleader, couldn't stop gushing about the wonderful life Cookie and Angelo were guaranteed to have together. 

Everyone around her seemed to agree that a future with Angelo – a society golden boy with, yes, a few skeletons of his own in his closet – was the best future for Cookie, »

Move over, Madonna!

Taye Diggs is pulling out all the stops on this week’s episode of Lip Sync Battle, in which the actor performs “Vogue” in a sultry outfit that would make the music icon proud.

In a sneak peek at the performance, Diggs, 46, slips into a short blond wig and — of course — a cone bra corset for the number, topping off the look with a deep red lipstick. Accompanied by a crew of back-up dancers, the star breaks into the iconic dance, mouthing along the lyrics to the classic song.

Empire Season 3 Episode 11 Review: Play On

29 March 2017 8:08 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

"Play On" felt like a bit of a letdown after the adrenaline shot to the heart that was Empire Season 3 Episode 10. Then again, anything was going to feel like a letdown after Cookie's big bust-up with Lucious. 

On Empire Season 3 Episode 11, it was back to business as usual – literally. The usual people butted heads, fought for power, argued over music, and so on and so forth.  

While these kinds of things happened in the spring premiere as well, that episode had the benefit of being the show's welcome return after a few months away. Two episodes in a row of similar storylines makes one realize how little the show has actually moved forward.

That isn't to say "Play On" wasn't an entertaining hour of television. There were plenty of great moments, starting with the return of the fabulous Vivica A. Fox as Cookie's high-society sister, Candace.

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watch the Season 3 midseason premiere of “Empire,” titled “Sound and Fury,” which aired on Wednesday, March 22.

Welcome back to the Lyons den. After a three-month hiatus, Fox’s juggernaut “Empire” returned and the first episode of 2017 did not disappoint when it comes to drama, sex, cat-fights, music, drugs, baseball bats, and broken glass.

If you’re confused by the sentence above, then perhaps you didn’t watch the episode — so beware of spoilers below.

The episode kicked off with Lucious (Terrence Howard) unveiling his new project, Inferno, setting Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) into a tizzy because as co-ceo of Empire, she shouldn’t be caught off guard by any new business dealings.

‘Empire’: Taraji P. Henson on Cookie’s New ‘Nemesis’ and Guest Stars Eva Longoria, Demi Moore

22 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Empire” went on hiatus in December, and after more than three months, the broadcast juggernaut returns this week with the back-half of its third season.

When the Fox drama last signed off, the Lyon family left viewers with many cliffhangers — Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) sent Jamal (Jussie Smollett) to rehab; Angelo (Taye Diggs) and Cookie’s relationship was left on the rocks after Lucious (Terrence Howard) uncovered his dark past; and Andre (Trai Byers) vowed to kill his father, Lucious. (For a full refresher, click here.)

Taraji P. Henson tells Variety that the new episodes will see “the family fall apart and come back together again and then fall apart again.” With a laugh, she adds, “That’s the best way I can put it without giving too much away.”

Here, in an exclusive Q&A, Henson tells Variety what to expect in “Empire” Season 3, plus teases new guest stars Demi Moore, Rumer Willis »
