Empire’s Taraji P. Henson To Host “SNL” + Writing A New Memoir

#CookieMonsters are you ready?


Taraji P. Henson is hosting SNL this Saturday.

“I have to treat it like another job or I will get up there and choke,” the Empire star told me last night at the Samsung Galaxy S 6 edge launch party at Quixote Studios in West Hollywood. “I know it’s incredible. I’m so honored and amazed to even be on it. I know legends do Saturday Night Live. I get all of it, but in my mind, to keep my cool, I have to look at it like’s it’s just another job.”

SNL confirmed it on their twitter. I’m excited for Taraji to host SNL and I can’t wait to see her comedic talents you know she has some one liners on Empire.


Taraji has a deal with the Simon & Schuster’s imprint 37 Ink to write her memoir. Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press that the book is currently untitled, the release date is expected around mid-2016.

What will be in the memoir:

Her childhood  growing up in a rough Washington DC neighborhood, raising her son as a single parent and her film and TV roles. And I wouldn’t be surprise if she talks about the untimely passing of her son’s father.

This is definitely Taraji’s breakout year.
