Taraji P. Henson, most recently known for her role as Cookie on Empire, was treated for exhaustion Friday.
Anyone who watches FOX's new show, Empire (and considering how big a hit it is, there should be a lot of you), know that Taraji P. Henson's portrayal of Cookie is the best part of the series. On Friday, Henson was hospitalized, but fans will be happy to hear she's making a quick recovery, with her rep confirming that the reason for the visit is fairly minor.
"Taraji is going to be fine. It was mostly exhaustion," her people told ABC, which means that Season 2 of Empire, which is filming now in Chicago, should still make its September 23rd premiere date.
Henson was already cracking jokes on Instagram as of yesterday, posting a photo of her IV, and captioning with a reference to her character in the show, and stressing that the hospital trip was really just a matter of her "doing too much". Check it out below.
God has a way of saying "you're doing too much!" "SAT DOWN SOMEWHERE". I'm listening Father!!! I am taking several seats!!! Don't worry y'all I'm a tough cookie! HA! I will be just fine. My momma and best friends are flying in to check on me. I AM FINE!!!!!!! Just need to SAT ALL THE WAY DOWN for a bit. #listentoyourbody 💋💋💋💪🏾
