Raven-Symoné made an epic return to TV on Wednesday night on Fox’s new hit show, Empire. She delivered one of the most shocking lines yet, but the way she did it was brilliant! Check out this video from Jussie Smollet’s, the actor who plays Jamal Lyons, Instagram before I explain what made her return more than awesome:
If you don’t get the joke from the video, let me explain. Back in 2008/2009 it was rumored that Raven-Symoné was pregnant and that eventually she gave birth to a daughter. To top it all off, Jussie Smollett was rumored to be the baby daddy (haha). Talk about coming full circle. And to add the icing on the cake, her name on Empire is Olivia just like her name was on The Cosby Show.
It’s just extremely cool how they killed any speculation and made fun of the situation at the same time. Can’t wait to see how Empire attacks this storyline. So far, they have been handling Jamal being gay delicately, hopefully this isn’t just thrown in, but if Empire has showed us anything, we know that they have some BOMB writers. #expectingthebest
Can’t wait for next week!
