Empire Season 2 Episode 15 Recap: Just Like Old Times

Empire Season 2 Episode 14 Recap: The Heir

Empire Season 2 Episode 14 Recap: The Heir

On this week’s episode of Empire, Lucious makes it his mission to get back into his company and claim the throne as CEO of Empire. I cannot believe what I’m seeing. Thirsty is actually pulling a hair from little Lola’s head?! What is this skinny man up to? Ew. I do not like Anika playing the nice housekeeper and taking care of Rhonda. She politely escorts herself out of the room when Andre comes to visit, but I’m not buying her act. Anika starts vomiting in the toilet and Rhonda and Andre rush to see what’s wrong. At first she … Continue reading

Empire Season 2 Episode 13 Recap: Birthday Dinner

Empire-Season2-EP13-Cookie-Lucious

On last week’s episode of Empire, Lucious caught Camilla trying to hide her tracks after killing Mimi. He told her to take a sip of whatever it was that she gave Mimi and, surprisingly, she downed a bottle of prescription medication. I had my doubts about whether or not she actually took the pills but it looks like she did. Everyone is mourning the loss of Camilla during her service at Empire on this week’s episode of Empire. I guess Lucious hasn’t broken the news to his family about the role he played in Camilla’s death. Lucious tries pinning her death … Continue reading

Empire Season 2 Episode 12 Recap: The Dwight Walker Story

Empire Season 2 Episode 12 Recap: The Dwight Walker Story

On last week’s episode of Empire, we saw Hakeem take the reins as the new CEO of Empire. While he’s still being controlled by his puppeteer, Camilla, it seems that Hakeem is willing to keep the business in the family. He’s allowed for Cookie to be the head of A&R, Andre to be the chief financial officer of Empire and president of Gutter Life Records, and for Jamal to focus on his music with Empire. I’m sure Camilla has a few words to say about all these decisions. Lucious is giving Hakeem three months as CEO before he’ll come crawling … Continue reading

Empire Season 2 Episode 11 Recap: Life, Death and Business

Empire Season 2 Episode 11 Recap: Life, Death and Business

With Lucious losing the Empire to Mimi and Hakeem going against his own father by siding with Camilla, there are high expectations for the Season 2 return of Empire. We last saw Rhonda as she was pushed down the stairs in her new home — the one that Lucious so willingly paid for. Since Anika is pregnant with Hakeem’s secret misfit child, it would seem that Anika is at the top of the suspect list for who’s responsible. Jealousy is one ugly monster. Rhonda is left crawling on the floor to get her phone and call for help. She doesn’t get a … Continue reading

Kiefer Sutherland announces music tour, record release

kiefer-sutherland-tour-album

Heads up, Kiefer Sutherland fans! Turns out, Kevin Bacon’s not the only former FOX network star to turn his attention to music. The former 24 star will launch a nationwide music tour on April 14 — right here in my Milwaukee hometown — in support of his upcoming folk album Down In A Hole, due for a summer release.  In 2002, Sutherland launched the Ironworks record label with his friend and music partner, Jude Cole, setting their sights on affording bigger opportunities to local talent.  Sutherland left the label in 2009, returning to music in early 2015, when he reunited with Cole and began penning and … Continue reading

“Dirty Dancing” Casts Its Johnny

Dirty Dancing

Lionsgate and ABC have found their Johnny to star in the upcoming three-hour filmed musical event, Dirty Dancing. At this time, no date for the spectacular has been announced. Singer/dancer/actor Colt Prattes (P!nk’s music video “Try”, Rock of Ages) will be showing Baby (Abigail Breslin) the time of her life as romantic lead Johnny, a charismatic, skilled dance instructor and leader of the working-class entertainment staff at a 1960’s Catskill Mountains resort. I am in a awe of this video, and the subsequent performance during the 2012 AMA’s, so I’m so pleased for this talented performer to get the attention he deserves. … Continue reading
