A house as sweet as a "cookie!"
If you watch Empire, then you know the gorgeous and talented actress Taraji P. Henson.
She's on top of her game and ready to make even more money by renting out her Hollywood Hills home for a whopping $12,000 per month, as per Realtor. If the renter wants a fully-furnished place, it's theirs, but for even more cash per month. Isn't sleeping in Cookie's bed worth a few extra bucks?
Taraji purchased the pad for $1.7 mil back in 2010 but is looking to rent it out since selling it hasn't panned out yet. Realtor states that she listed the home for $3.25 million in December 2015, but the buying price may go down to under $3 mil. Even so, Ms. Henson will rake in some coin on the sale.
The home is located in the lovely Beachwood Cannon area and has a "Moorish castle feel" as per Realtor. It's a relatively large place – 4,200-square-feet – and boasts four bedrooms and five bathrooms… and a salon! Only the finest for Cookie Lyon - and we're not lyin'.
The main living room is spacious and airy, with hardwood floors, plush sofas, a marble bar, and plenty of light beaming in. There's a fireplace and plenty of decorative furnishings to make the room rich and luxurious. A sweeping staircase leads to the second floor.
A large center island makes the kitchen sublime, plus the high-end appliances and cabinetry give the room an impressive touch. Wonder if there are any "cookies" baking in the oven?

The media room is perfect for screening
Empire with a few friends as you relax on the large leather seats. Why go out to the movies when all you need's in this house anyway?
Indulge in the master bathroom where the marble flooring is spectacular and there's plenty of room to get ready for a night out. Wash up in the large shower or soak in the step-up tub.
Work those biceps and booty in the exercise room down in the garage with gym-level equipment and a ballet barre. Gotta stay in shape to keep up with the Hollywood crowd!
Outside, there's a lounge with a fire pit and a sexy hot tub. Plus, the views of downtown L.A. are not to be missed… just like an episode of Empire!
