Tales From Nia Long's On Set Reign of Terror


This week news leaked that actress Nia Long caused havoc on the set of the hit Fox series Empire while filming her guesting starring role [click here if you missed that].

Set insiders spill the tea...

From TMZ
-- Our sources say in the history of the show the hair and makeup people have only filed one formal complaint for mistreatment ... and that was against Nia. The hair and makeup people say she was extremely disrespectful ... at times deciding she didn't like her look at the last minute and then chewing them out. The sources say there have been numerous guest appearances on the show -- "from rappers to Demi Moore, and no complaints were lodged against anyone but Nia." 
-- Our sources say Nia was "habitually late." They say Taraji and Terrence Howard would sometimes be waiting on set for 30 minutes and Nia was a no-show. Producers would finally use a stand-in for Nia so Taraji and Terrence could rehearse a scene.
-- It is custom on the set when guest stars finish their last scene for the Assistant Director to call it out ... "This is (name of actor) last scene," followed by a "thank you" and applause. When Nia did her last scene, Terrence was having some sort of allergic reaction and his lip began swelling. The A.D. was looking for Benadryl when Nia left. It's unclear if the A.D. was distracted or just didn't want to thank Nia, but we're told as Nia walked out she told someone in production she was going to sue the show because the "goodbye" was in her contract. Production sources say it was not in her contract. We spoke with one actor on the show who said the experience was so unpleasant they would never work with her again.

I can believe it. I don't buy that "nice girl" that she tries to put on

This is more about how Lee Daniels runs a set. He is of the "Tyler Perry School of Stage Production."

In other words these two men, Tyler ad Lee run a set like your girl Shenay Nay runs her salon in the kitchen.

Nia is a veteran professional actress. She is not used to SHENAY AND NEM RUNNING A TV PRODUCTION SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@10:44 If she's not used to how the set runs it's just because she hasn't been on one in forever. She's so over she's blowing TV guest spot gigs. Her attitude is probably due to her realizing that.

She may also not be used to guest starring on a show she could possibly be starring in. Maybe the bitterness is coming from her jealousy and resentment of Taraji's newfound fame.

Nia was guest starring on FRESH PRINCE 20+ ago. And ironicly, she's got the same job today, on Empire.

It's funny how ghetto, petty, low class black hoodrats are so threatened when a black person comes in not acting like they have a chip on their shoulder, ghetto drama and an inferiority complex. Ghetto, hood, "read and pettiness" culture has gotten tired among black women and fags. Grow up. High school is OVER.

^^^ You have issues.

None of us were there so all of this is speculation.

For all we know Nia could've been PMSing and this is getting blown way out of control.

Somebody was saying that her addiction to "ski slopes" is what made her out of work for so long and now causing issues with Taraji and the other staff

All previous comments aside, Nia Long is NOTORIOUS for being an asshole. No matter if it's an award show, television special or scripted series - NOTORIOUS. I don't know anyone on the set of EMPIRE so not taking up for them, but after working in the TV biz for years, I'm going to say the Nia story rings true.

If Nia keeps fucking around, she's going to be like Katherine Heigl. Doing kitty litter commercials.
