Meet Sophia Eggleston.
This is the Detroit woman who claims she is the real-life Cookie Lyon. Sophia is now suing Empire co-creators Lee Daniels, Danny Strong and FOX for $300 million. She’s accusing them of ripping of her life to create Taraji P. Henson’s character.
According to Page Six, Eggleston, who used to be a “drug kingpin”, says there are many similarities between she and Cookie.
The suit alleges specific similarities to Eggleston’s life: “Cookie was a drug kingpin that went to jail. So did plaintiff Eggleston. Cookie is released from jail confinement and immediately places a hit on a certain individual. Plaintiff . . . actually was jailed for doing the actual hit on a man.”
In addition to her shady past, Sophia also says she enjoys rocking mink coats like Cookie and even has a gay family member, just like Lady Lyon’s son, Jamal.
After Eggleston did her bid in the pin, she wrote a book about her life called “The Hidden Hand”. Sophia claims she traveled to LA in 2011 to meet with screenwriter Rita Miller and gave Miller a copy of her book. Page Six reports that, “her copyright suit, filed in US District Court in Michigan, says she got a call from Miller several months later saying she was going to pitch her story to Daniels.”
Well, fast-forward to 2015 when Empire premiered and Eggleston got no credit. Call us crazy, but if she really did get her book to Mr. Daniels she could have a case on her hands.
Rihanna Admits To Having A “Fluctuating Body Type” — And This Is How She Deals With It
Earlier this year, rumors were running rampant that Rihanna was pregnant. It became quickly evident that the singer was not carrying, but we are now learning that the apparent weight gain might’ve have ben due to fluctuation.
During an interview with The Cut, Badgalriri suggested she has a “fluctuating body type,” but that she’s learned how to dress for the variations. “I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversized,” she said while promoting her new Fenty x Puma line.
She added, “I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”
The singer went on to explain that because people’s bodies are constantly changing, fashion should not be mundane. “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning,” she explained. “I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing.”
She continued, “And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?”
The fashion designer added, “I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”
Rihanna is not just a fashionista, but she is also wildly confident in every garment she rocks. Confidence is major for the singer, who expressed to the fashion outlet that it’s men in black who rule dressing with confidence.
Yes. This is new for me; this is recent. I love a man in black,” she explained. “It’s so sexy and mysterious; confident and secure—all the things I love about a man. So, I’m into that.”
Ri celebrated the launch of her new line just last week. Click here to see photos.
