Out-of-control star Taraji P. Henson is the person of the day here at Life of Refinement. Here she is rocking out on the Chelsea Lately show. Topics include twitter, her naked PETA ad, looking for a man, and the business.
Henson is a boss — she crushes co-stars in Hustle and Flow, Curious case of Benjamin whatever, her lifetime movie (which I didn’t see) and now has a bad-ass TV show. Of course, TV Guide decided to put the two white male co-stars on TV Guide. What?
Oscar-nominated actor Taraji P. Henson stars in the new CBS drama Person of Interest, but you wouldn’t know that if you asked TV Guide. According to Henson, the why-are-they-still-a-magazine magazine was planning a cover story on her new show, but the resulting photos featured her two white male costars… and not her. From her Facebook page yesterday:
WOW!!!! TV Guide is NOT including me on the cover with my cast members……. I am the female lead of a 3 member cast and I’m not included on the cover!!!!! Do you see the shit I have to deal with in this business….. I cram to understand!!!!
Racism. Sexism. Idiocy. Thanks TV Guide.
