Empire star Taraji P. Henson and daytime talk show host Michael Strahan are romantically involved, according to published reports.
Taraji appeared on Strahan's popular talk show, Live with Kelly & Michael, last week. Insiders say that after the show's taping, Taraji and Michael went out on a date.
Taraji was impressed with Michael's upper body strength, especially after he let her ride him while he did push ups on the set.
But Taraji is a single mother who has been down that lonely road with men before. She has no luck with men due to her (alleged) caustic attitude and fierce independence streak.
According to Star magazine, Taraji is “definitely smitten" with Michael, but she "likes to take things slow."
There is no doubt that Taraji has her eye on Michael but We find it hard to believe that Michael reciprocates, especially since he doesn't date black women. Wasn't Michael just frolicking on the beach with a blond woman last week?
Hopefully Taraji knows the signs of a cheating dog. Michael is fertile, but he is just not relationship material.
“Michael flirted openly with Taraji on camera, but he wasn’t kidding — off camera, he kept asking her, ‘When can I take you out?'” reports Star.
Although Taraji didn’t take his advance seriously, she reportedly accepted his offer eventually by drinking and dining with Michael at the Mandarin Oriental, adds Star.
Time will only tell if these two continue to start seeing each other, but we think they would make such a cute couple!
Michael, who is twice-divorced, and Taraji, who was linked to Khloe Kardashian‘s ex, Lamar Odom, have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
