How Did Ms. Lawrence Land ‘Empire?’

We were all surprised when we spotted RHOA personality Ms. Lawrence from the recently cancelled Fashion Queens on the season two premiere of Empire.

How did he land the gig?

While goofing around with his Fashion Queens co-star Bevy Smith, Ms. Lawrence did a spot-on impression of Cookie Lyon. Smith sent the video to her good friend Lee Daniels with the message ‘Hire him!’ Lee responded ‘Done!’ Ms. Lawrence was able to audition a few weeks later and the rest is history

It pays having good friends in high places.
