Queen Latifah and Amiyah Scott

Lee Daniels' new 'Dreamgirls' inspired scripted TV series is shaping up to be all-gay.

Remember I told you Daniels wanted to transform 'Empire' into a mostly gay cast? Well his dreams died quickly as Empire's ratings stumbled out of the gate. Empire was so gay centric that rappers attacked the series as being "too gay."

So Daniels turned to his new project, an as yet untiled series that focuses on Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson)'s younger days as a member of a girl band.

According to the AJC's Radio & TV Talk, Daniels tapped lesbian actress Queen Latifah to play mentor to the 3-member girl group. Atlanta drag queen Amiyah Scott is one third of the group. It remains to be seen if he can sing and dance.

  • Just Keya

    One of them sure did have it, and was all sickly looking. Said his cheating bf gave it to him.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I don't have a problem with gay/trans. I do have a problem with people saying I have to like it because it's gay/trans.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Prancing Fuckery

  • Just Keya

    I am NOT here for him playing a young cookie. Not at all. Nope.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    They use to strut around in those gold leotards ?

  • 1/8

    The Lee Daniels/Empire brand is eroding before our eyes.

  • Milani

    Ehh, I'm good. I'm not interested, cuz this is just too much.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I haven't been watching original Cookie since my Supernatural started back up. Not even dvr'ing it or watching it On Demand. I just completely quit on Empire. Maybe I'll catch it over the break. I really liked last season.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    They are trying to be 'fetch' I learned that from Jenie ?

    He can't play a young cookie when get looks just as old as current cookie. He must be young cookie's uncle

  • Sincerity7

    Here we go down the rabbit hole..

  • side_i

  • MookieFly

    Lmao!

  • Just Keya

    The Prancing Elite. And I saw a few shows...I was not here for them. They were a hot mess.

  • Just Keya

  • harley_quinn2.0

    THIS!

  • askquestions

    Who's on his writing staff?

  • Di Ana

    New post yall.

  • MookieFly

    There's some conflicting news out there. I read that the show is about a girl group but Amiya is NOT a part of the group. Queen Latifah is still the mentor but the show doesn't have ties to Cookie Lyon.

  • Hater

  • ?E?E?M?A

    No one says clockable. Sandra needs to stop making you straight people sound stupid thinking you know gay slang.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Bet ten bucks they ALL got them fuzzy boots too! :hahaha:

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Preview looked funny :yes:

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    That is an Unclockable Clockable, because you really can't tell :crying1:

    Queen Latifah is alright with me :yes: ION care what or who she's choosing :no:

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I thought all that shyt the same chile ..... whatever .... one of them trans people....them lolololol

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Plenty of gay people (Black) say clockable OR unclockable.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I say clockable and unclockable. But I guess I'm nobody.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think he will play a young Cookie. Lee is trying to prove his point that trannies can be real women.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Well if this foolery happens, I won't be watching. I'm sorry Auntie, g*y is ok but pretending to be a woman is not ok. Its just isn't right for a man to prance around like a woman. If Cookie is down with a trans-man playing her, well she should be offended and no longer consider herself special or one of a kind, I'M JUST SAYING...

  • The Mrs.

    I read that the three members of the group are Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O'Grady. Maybe Amiyah has another part in the series.

  • Just Keya

    It's a moot point, because they can't be real women. Ever. SO Lee is wasting his time.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Well you're someone with an opinion just like everyone else. And you can be wrong too. Gay men..not women..invented the terminology and you would never hear a gay man say unclockable. Do your research. The correct terms would be "real".. Or "passable". Even if you look at transexual sèx ads they call themselves "real" or passable. No tranny nowadays refers to themself as unclockable. It's dated.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Don't people say "fishy" or "fish" too or is that dated? I've heard that on drag race.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Clearly you don't know gay people or trannies. A spoke to a tranny the other day who told me he "clocked" another tranny the moment he walked in. Psshhh, bye Felicia.

  • truth

    SANDRA ROSE IS THAT UGLY CHICK THAT HATE AND SPREAD HATE JUST BECAUSE SHE CAN KEEP A MAN.

  • truth

    YAH BYE lol

  • scentsychick30

    ?I guess lee couldn't find young girls......amiyah up top looking very clockable ?

  • eljjai

    big face, look at the space between his eyebrows.

  • eljjai

    Well arent u salty "Truth", your login must be a misnomer, you can't be that happy with the truth when you seem to think everyone else has issues with it.

  • eljjai

    the package is a fact of life for many a gay man, they tend to treat it like it's no big deal.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And you posted her photo to say exactly what? I see a beautiful born female queen in this photo.... You must be mad cause she (Sandra) has ovaries.... Or hell why you so mad about a term.... All that shyt is confusion .... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/89f321d95edb660f5ce9f7bf90598a62df180114e3c296b15da28ddaca7c4c2f.jpg
