R&B singer Kelly Rowland took her cutie pie 14-month-old son, Titan Jewell, to the pumpkin patch on Saturday. Titan's daddy, Tim Witherspoon, also tagged along to help pick out the perfect pumpkin for Halloween.

In unrelated news, Rowland is petitioning Empire's producers to beef up her role on the soap opera musical.

Rowland plays Leah Walker, Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard)'s mentally unstable mom who appears only in flashbacks on the show.

But Rowland wants to spread her wings and prove she's a better actress than her former Destiny's Child bandmate, Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

Rowland may get her wish.

Empire showrunner Ilene Chaiken told Variety that Rowland's character will be expanded in season 2.

Chaiken also said Leah Walker's confusing background will be cleared up in due time.

"You learn a lot of things, and we reveal them slowly — it's a very slow burn over the course of the season," Chaiken told Variety.

She added; "Who is Lucious Lyon? How did he become the person he is? This is the story we're telling with Kelly Rowland in the flashbacks. And the reveals will ultimately be very consequential."

Leah's story will continue to be told in flashbacks until the day she and her son meet again.

Unfortunately, the way viewers are tuning out by the millions, there may only be a handful of viewers left to watch the sad reunion take place.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Adorable baby. I haven't watched Empire in 2 weeks. I'm very pissed about this bs Jem movie that is nothing like my beloved childhood cartoon. I loved Jem so much I got my girls in to it via Neflix. That movie they made is utter trash and so far from the premise of the cartoon they shouldn't even be calling it Jem.

  • scentsychick30

    Her son is a cutie patootie ?,I watched and still missed her on the show. I will have to catch up on demand?

  • Full Monty

    I'd rather see Beyonce play the role than Kelly!

  • goat

  • ShelbyMoore

    Can't wait to watch Gabby play herself again.

  • scentsychick30

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    be careful what you wish for kelley.....those demons in the industry will beef up your role to include flashbacks of your character sucking different mens dicks, and all kinds of immoral shenanigans

  • SummerBaby

    My nephew is a light bright like Terrence Howard & he's not biracial. Neither parent is light skinned either. Sometimes genes skip generations.

  • AnonymousRose

Dead, never watched, power, dont know chyt about the black is orange, never watch blackish, dont know what JEM is, SHOULD I GO CRAWL. BACK UNDER MY ROCK.......:(

    Yea I know I'm mad. One of my favorite cartoons. With all this new technology they could've EASILY followed the original story. They are basically retelling Hannah Montana with this movie. No Bueno.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

  • SummerBaby

    My mom is very light & my nephew looks like her. Now Sandra a dna test was done at birth before he signed any paper work. He's ours.

  • Maccabees Apocrypha

    ...and WHY is terrance howard's character as a little boy looking biracial???

    mutherfcrks trying their best to influence black women to procreate with demons.

    ...actually they've successfully succeeded doing that in Dallas, TX...too many of the black women in Dallas are Bed wenches

  • EasyBreezy

    That cutie is surely his father's child.

  • mzwhang90210

    I was being nosey...she's okay. LOL I KNOW you saw where she'd put a pic up of them....right around the time they were going thru it..and somebody posted that she needed to take that pic down. I was done.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I asked that same question about the little boy.

  • SummerBaby

    Lesson learned ?

  • ShelbyMoore

    Hahahaha....I used to kill the lip liner. You couldn't tell me nothing! You already know it's gonna come back in style...all it's gonna take is Bey or Rih for the minions to start lining their lips. LOL

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you read the post? She's not dead.

  • 1/8

    Sorry, but I am no longer emotionally invested in this show. My Wednesdays belong to SVU.

  • DivineMsM

    She may be locked up in a mental ward somewherez. ::waves hello::

  • AnonymousRose

  • AnonymousRose

  • Buttercup

    Yep. She was being so messy when she uploaded that picture.

  • MissyJ

    It's a rose that ain't let go of the liner... be careful for feelings get hurt and it's stacked peeptoe scandal all over again lol

  • Buttercup

    You and me both! My brown lip liner with my bon bon gloss. Chile, you couldn't tell me that I wasn't IT.

  • MissyJ

    Do we know Lucious ain't biracial?

  • Buttercup

    Bwahahahaha! OTBey ain't have to hurt my feelings about those stacked peeptoes, but just as she reached one, I must teach one.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Good for her. I root for Kelly I want her to win.

  • MissyJ

    Do you own a TV? Or you just watch BBC all the time?

  • iWasteTime

    **hug**

  • MissyJ

    jem is on Netflix?!?!?!

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Nothing is wrong with you but broaden your horizon. Doesn't hurt to check it out. I don''t watch half that stuff but I check it out just in case I may like it.

  • Mrs_diabolique

    They pissed me off something horrible with Jem. Turned it into some tween love story. I'm hot bout that.

  • SweetsJunkie

    U might want to save the SVU episodes when nothing else is on tv but infomercials and you can't sleep

  • iWasteTime

    No. No matter, her "son" is 15 years older than her

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    This about sums up.my feelings about this show...sorry buttttt..

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Kelly is better at acting than Queen B..... However she shouldn't play his mom now..... She needs to stay in the past if she is doing well at that. Kelly is cute and my favorite out of all them Destiny Child's girls....but she can't act to me....

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think the makeup artist will age her. I just hope her acting skills are up to par when she emerges from the flashbacks and starts speaking her lines.

  • ShelbyMoore

    If you can't sleep, all you have to watch is On the Case With Paula Zahn. That woman's voice will put you right to sleep.

  • Queen Negus

    This is her role of a lifetime! She plays it very well when she is silent starting into space wondering what Bey is doing??????

  • Buttercup

    You gotta be sure to set the sleep time on your tv though. I've learned my lesson from falling asleep with Investigation Discovery playing in the background.

  • Bootcampgirl

    happy cordcutter over here...

  • felinelurker

    You not missing nothing with Being Mary Jane ... unless you into that kinda stuff ....

  • WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately?

    I only ask because while possible the odds aren't high and Terrence is biracial. I don't think it would be realistic for Kelly and another black man to have a kid that looked like Terrence.

  • BlancheD

    Yes Blanche 6 loves it.

  • The Mrs.

    Girl but you gotta watch How to Get Away With Murder! That's the show right there! #1 show on TV!

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Saw a cute quiz on BuzzFeeddotcom called "You’ll Never Guess How Old These Age-Defying Celebs Are" and Gab was one of the celebrities. When someone asked why it featured only Black women, someone replied, "What white 57 year old do you know that defies age?" Someone said, "Ellen DeGeneres." Now that I don't know but she did for a time represent Cover Girl.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Thanks for the reminder, yippeee!

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    I cut the cord years ago & am happy with Roku and Amazon Fire Stick. I no longer sit through boring fake restaurant scenes of Real Housewives of Atlanta because I found a person who reviews it on YouTube complete with imitations of Kandi. I get other interesting tidbits here on SR & I'm good.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Whet? You don't like big foots?

  • Sassy24

    Yup

  • Locapoca

    See that's what's bothering me.... Perhaps if it was a well pedicured foot I'd be like to each their own but that shyt right there I can't tell if that foot belongs to a female,male, shim,sham, etc. ?

  • Chocolate City

    Yes because beyonce looks old enough to play a grown man's mother.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    hateful.
    ROFL!

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    But if brothas are abandoning us for women who are building their bodies & faces to resemble our God-given features, who can we run to, to share our empty spaces? Who can we run to when we need love?

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    guess we just gotta stand here contemplating...

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Hey Feline! :waves:

  • felinelurker

    Haaaaaay!

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    It won't matter. In real life Florida was about 20 years older than James, and James was about 10 years older than JJ. Weezy was 20 years older than George Jefferson. Laurence Fishburne is only 9 years older than Anthony Anderson but plays his dad on Black-ish.

    Ellen defies age to who?!

  • Power*Pup*

    OMFG u and me both, when they white-washed shana i was too fvcking thru! i said i won't dare support it (granted i prolly wasn't gonna go see it, but still i'm outraged how they couldn't cast an african-american girl as shana as it was in the cartoon instead of some bi-racial or latina or whatever that chic is) . . .

  • Power*Pup*

    they run it on cable too that's how i started watching it again (on discovery's family channel)

  • Poppy Jones

    Oh please!

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Too much gay stuff. It was bad to have the cast singing songs at awards shows. Jussie promoting gay rights all the time. The line between show and reality was too blurred. Also Lee Daniels needs to be waaay in the background.
