“Empire” stars Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett helped kick off the start of summer in NYC with MYX Fusions Moscato at their Summer Sizzle BVI 2015 Launch Party. Get the pics inside…
MYX Fusions Moscato (owned by Nicki Minaj & Mona Scott Young) threw a party to help launch Summer Sizzle BVI 2015 (an international party event in the British Virgin Islands)last night at the Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York.
FOX’s Empire stars Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett hosted the launch party which included the refreshing natural flavors of MYX Moscato, Peach and Mango throughout the night.
And of course everyone wanted a piece of Taraji and Jussie. In addition to starring on “Empire”, Taraji will soon return to CBS’ “Person Of Interest” series. You’ll recall that her character was killed off in the third season, but now, they want her back! Apparently, she’s shooting some “flashback” scenes. The series is billing the episode as a “Final Farewell” (airing April 14th). We bet she and her agent really stuck it to CBS in the “billing” department and she’s getting a huge check. And don’t forget that Taraji is hosting SNL this weekend! Watch the promos here.
By the way, we just got a little nugget of new s- Taraji is working on a memoir! The deal is with the Simon & Schuster imprint 37 Ink and has a planned mid-2016 release.
The tome will cover her childhood in a rough Washington, DC neighborhood and her journey to Hollywood with hit films “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Hustle & Flow” and “Baby Boy” and an Emmy nomination for the TV movie “Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.”
“Blood Sweat & Heels” star and newlywed Demetria Lucas D’Oyle looked chic in her leather jacket and leather boots. Loving the dress.
Stylist to the Queen Bee (Beyonce) Mr. Ty Hunter sipped Moscato with the other celebs as well.
The 7th Annual Summer Sizzle BVI event takes place July 23 – 27 in the British Virgin Islands.
