Is Terrence Howard calling it quits in Hollywood? Possibly. Find out what he said about possibly leaving the acting world behind after “Empire” and get the deets on Rachel Dolezal finally addressing her race on “The Real” inside….

Is it true? Will Terrence Howard retire from the game after his role on “Empire?!” That’s what he seems to be saying.

“EXTRA” caught up with the 46-year-old actor on the red carpet at the Be Beautiful Be Yourself Global Down Syndrome Fashion Show in Denver recently. And while on the carpet, Terrence, who stars as lead star Lucious Lyon, revealed “Empire” may be the last role he plays. He spilled,

“I want to give Lucious the rest that I have in this creative space, and then I want to raise my son.”

Oh? He does still have time to reprise his role as Quentin in The Best Man Wedding?

By the way, Terrence and his wife Mira Pak welcomed their baby boy Qirin Love in May 2015. It appears his newest bundle of joy and his wife has him wanting to be a total family man. He said,

“I’ve got a beautiful baby boy. I’ve met my one, and I’ll be with her until time definite.”

Well alrighty. Guess he threw that in there to remind folks that he and his wife have NOT broken up, despite rumors saying they had already divorced.

The Hustle and Flow actor also addressed those absurd rumors that he and Taraji P. Henson were at war behind-the-scenes. Taraji already shot the rumors down and now he’s addressing the madness. He explained there was NEVER a feud between them other than who’s going to get the weekend off and who’s working the latest on Friday. Ha!

The Oscar nominated actor also dropped a small nugget on what we can expect from the rest of Season 2 of “Empire,” saying, “Maybe [Lucious] having a bipolar mother had a huge effect on him. That is one of the things we’re uncovering.” Interesting.

While “Empire” didn’t come on this week due to the World Series, you can catch it next Wednesday at 9pm ET on FOX.

In another interview…

Rachel Dolezal, the former Spokane NAACP chapter president, is back y’all! Yes…she is not letting go of her long-overdue 15 minutes of fame. Or her wiggery.

We’re sure you remember how she came under fire after her parents outed her as a white woman pretending to be a black woman. Folks were outraged that this woman was pretending to be black, simply because she “identified with the culture.” At the time, the burning question everyone wanted an answer to was “What is your race?,” but Rachel never gave an answer…until now.

On Monday (Nov. 2nd), Rachel will appear on “The Real” where she’s supposedly going to keep it all the way real. In the teaser for the upcoming episode, Rachel will finally answer a few questions everyone has been wondering since her story made headlines, including “Is she ashamed of being white?”

Below are the highlights from their conversation:

Loni Love: Now this is my other question, um cause you in my house. Okay, so let’s get real, alright?

[The Real audience laughs and claps.]

Tamar Braxton: And it’s okay to be real.

Loni: Let’s just get real. Let’s stop all this.

Adrienne Bailon: This is The Real.

Loni: We’re just trying to figure this out, so we can understand where you’re coming from. ‘Cause it was hurtful to a lot of black women… there were some people that felt that you never identified yourself as white. So like when you went to Howard University, some people felt like they never knew you were white, you were black. And so they felt like maybe the scholarship or you know when you got admitted to Howard, that took a opportunity from a black woman.

[The Real audience claps.]

Loni: So that’s why a lot of people… It’s like you can identify…

Adrienne Bailon: For sure!

Loni: [Continued]… You’re beautiful!

Tamar Braxton: Yes!

Loni: But we’re trying to understand why in some instances you never told people that you were white. Are you, are you ashamed of being white?

Loni Love: Now this is my other question, um cause you in my house. Okay, so let’s get real, alright?

[The Real audience laughs and claps.]

Tamar Braxton: And it’s okay to be real.

Loni: Let’s just get real. Let’s stop all this.

Adrienne Bailon: This is The Real.
