“Empire” star Taraji P. Henson’s star is continuing to rise as a result of FOX’s new hit show breaking ratings records, but she says her success makes it more clear that she has to be careful about dating.

In fact, Taraji claims she doesn’t like to rush into claiming a man and prefers to claim them after they claim her first.

She tells Steve Harvey:

“I’m a grown woman, so you know like ‘dating’ *does excited squeal* those days are over. If there’s no ring on this finger, no-one gets claimed. You don’t get claimed until you claim me. Now today with all of this social media, it’s not private.”

Check out the video below:


  1. Man I really respect that she understands her dating habits really do affect her son. Too many single parents don’t get that. I wish her continued success. Her personality is so refreshing.

  2. She can teach these young ladies a lot. They run to social media to claim someone who never ends up claiming them. They stay falling for men who don’t plan on getting serious with them.

  3. She’s really becoming one of my favorite black actresses. I can appreciate that she has such a good head on her shoulders. And it’s cool that her peers respect her so much too. Go Taraji.

  4. This is why people cannot get enough of her. She is the real thing. I’m so happy that she has the values that she has.

  5. I really hope Hollywood won’t ruin her. So far it hasn’t and I’m thankful for that. Oftentimes the industry has a nasty way of changing people for the worst.
