Vivica A. Fox just stirred the pot big time!
Fans may have expected Sunday’s Watch What Happens Live to be all about the Real Housewives of Atlanta season premiere. But once host Andy Cohen asked one of his guests about Empire, things took quite the turn.
“What were your thoughts when 50 Cent blamed the season ratings dip on ‘gay stuff?'” Andy asked Vivica.
“First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying,” Vivica responded. Kandi Burruss replied, “That was some tea! That was shade. That was major shade.”
When Andy asked if 50 Cent could be gay, Vivica said “he’s not,” but not before adding, “We had a great time. He just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.” She also brought up a Vibe cover with 50 Cent and Soulja Boy that raised flags for her.
As for the accusations that 50 Cent doesn’t completely support Empire, those rumors began back in October when the rapper shared (then deleted) a page called @industryonblast_ that said the Fox show’s ratings fell because of too many celebrity cameos and “gay” plots.
His rep later issued a statement that read, “Mr. Jackson [50 Cent] reposted something on Instagram that originated from a blog in relation to the decrease in Empire‘s ratings. When he realized there was additional content in the blog post that he did not agree with, he immediately deleted the post as that is not a reflection of his views at all.” Andy later clarified the Instagram message at the end of Sunday’s live show.
As of now, Vivica appears to be standing by her remarks. In addition to posting several fans’ supportive tweets, the actress wrote, “Boom!! That’s was 4 my #EmpireSeason2 family yall!! Drops mic 😉 #WWHL.”
