Empire Assistants Porsha and Becky Promoted To Full Time Cast Members For Season 2

Look like Empire is helping keep down the unemployment rate. 

Assistants to Lucious and Cookie, Becky and Porsha are finally getting some respect. TV Line reports that Gabourey Sidibe, who plays Becky, and Ta'Rhonda Jones, who plays the scene-stealing Porsha, have been bumped up as series regulars for the second season of Empire.

Last month, following Empire‘s Season 1 finale, Ilene Chaiken commented on the series-regular prospects of Sidibe and Jones, telling TVLine’s Michael Slezak, “We love them both, and we want them both back as ongoing characters on the show.”
