Gabby Sidibe is addressing the alleged feud between Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson on the set of “Empire.” Find out what she said about it all inside…
As she continues making her rounds on the promo trail for her memoir “This Is Just My Face,” Gabourey Sidibe made a stop at the clubhouse on “Watch What Happens Live” alongside former “RHOA” star Kim Zolciak.
A fan called in and asked Gabby about the alleged ongoing feud between Nia Long and Taraji P. Henson on the set of “Empire.” You’ll recall, soon after Nia joined the cast as a guest star, rumors began circulating that Nia and Taraji were at each other’s throats. Why? Well, allegedly, Nia was said to be treating the cast, crew and hair and makeup team like crap and Taraji took issue with it.
Now, Gabby is clearing the air about the alleged quarrel. She laughed off the rumors, pointing out how the gossip mill has a double standard. She joked that no one ever talks about “beef” between Jussie Smollett and Tari Byers.
“I feel like it’s a girly thing. Nobody talks about how many times Jussie Smollett punches Trai Byers over a protein shake.”
She was joking. “We all like each other,” she said.
So, did Nia and Taraji have beef on set?
“None that I saw. I never worked with the both of them at the same time, so no.”
Gabby didn’t see anything go down between the two, but we do know the “Empire” on-set glam team filed a formal complaint against Nia. *shrugs*
