Cookie Lyon – Empire
Cookie is the poster woman for the Black TV mom who can turn all the way up. With her love for family, fiery passion, business savvy, and refusal to be silenced by any man, Cookie knows that being a mom doesn’t mean wearing ill-fitting jeans, becoming meek, and being sexless. Whether she’s taking back what’s hers or getting it in on a bear skin rug with Malcolm, Cookie knows how to have a good time and get things poppin’. In her best turn-up move yet, Cookie laid an epic beating on Boo Boo Kitty (Anika) while in the middle of planning a hostile takeover.
