Say what you want about her, but there’s something about Joseline Hernandez that cracks me all the way up.
VH1 caught up with Hernandez recently and during their brief chat, they asked her if she had been keeping up with everyone’s new TV addiction: “Empire.” The “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star is not only a big fan of the show, but she can relate to it because she thinks that Taraji P. Henson’s character of Cookie pulls inspiration from “the Puerto Rican princess.” In her best NeNe Leakes wig, Hernandez had this to say:
“Yaaaaaas. I love Empire, honey! I know Cookie been taking some lessons from me. I mean, where you think she gets it from? That ain’t all her character, that’s Joseline Hernandez’s character, honey. I know it for a fact. Shout out to Miss Cookie though.”
You gotta love Joseline.
But in case she missed it, Henson already shared with Vogue that a few feisty women, including Lil Kim, inspired her portrayal of Cookie. However, she made no mention of the Puerto Rican princess…
“Is she influenced by Foxy Brown? Certainly. That’s where a lot of her style comes from—Salt-N-Pepa, all of that. That era of hip-hop was her heyday, those are the woman[sic] she identifies with.”
Anywho, check out Hernandez’s comments on the show below:
