Amiyah Scott Lands Role on Empire Spin-Off!

Fox definitely knows it has a mega hit on its hands with Empire. Perhaps that is why the network is allowing Lee Daniels to make a spin off of the amazing series as a prequel based on Cookie Lyon. The rumors about this spin off have swirled for months, igniting fan theories and speculation that rival Marvel movies! We are not quite sure what the exact story line will be about but we know for sure one lucky lady will be making an appearance. Does the name Amiyah Scott, AKA “King Amiyah” ring a bell? Yep, this entertainer and transgender woman created a lot of buzz this year when it was falsely reported that she would be joining the cast of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Unfortunately for her, this all turned out to be one big rumor, quickly (and hilariously) debunked by Nene Leakes.

Amiyah may have lost out on becoming a housewife, but getting a role on an Empire spin off is so much better! She dropped a hint on Twitter that she was moving on to better things with the following picture:

It looks like Amiyah is ready to give Laverne Cox a run for her money (maybe not, lol) but we do wish her the best in the endeavor. The question is, however, are audiences going to be receptive to her? And is this a guest appearance or a contract role? According to TMZ, she will be the member of a girl group. Maybe that is how Cookie and Lucious met? He spotted her singing or producing a girl group? Who knows!? We will keep you posted!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
