EXCLUSIVE: Ta’Rhonda Jones- The Lyon Family Reminds Me Of My Own
Recently, we had the chance to exclusively talk with Ta’Rhonda Jones, who plays Cookie Lyon‘s assistant Porsha Taylor on the hit show Empire. We were curious to know in our conversation who Jones compared the Lyon family to, be it a family that was in pop culture or otherwise.
“I would say my own,” Jones exclusively shared with us.
“I think everybody has a dysfunctional family,” she continued. “It doesn’t even have to be pertaining to the family. It could just be a character outside the family. Everybody can relate to some character on the show… The characters are so relatable.”
“Everyone can relate to- I would definitely compare my family to their family,” she elaborated. “It’s a different level and different status, but we definitely go through our ups and downs.”
Jones wrapped with saying that, “At the end of the day- and that’s one thing I love about the show- at the end of the day, no matter how much we fight or how many differences we have, at the end of the day, we still know how to come together as a family.”
Stay tuned for more of our conversation with Jones coming soon.
