SMH... It's 2011 and women are still looked upon as second class!!! And whats even more sad is that Ms. Taraji P. Henson is the only woman in the lead cast and african american thats a double minority!!! I guess my question is did they choose her for this role because they wanted to be politically correct on both ends or was it simply because she was the best actor for the part? if she was the best actor for the part then why in the heck was she not on the cover of TV Guide with her fellow cast members? Either way it is apparent that she was left out of the photo on purpose smh And this is why I support Tyler Perry Studios he does not cancel you out of a photo shoot because you are a woman...or a minority as a matter of fact he encourages his people to be the best they can be and he in return will make sure you get noticed....



Taraji P. Henson is pretty upset with TV Guide. Why? Oh, they just so happened to forget to include her in their cast photo shoot for the CBS drama series Person of Interest. Somehow Henson (who plays Detective Carter, the female lead role on the show) was not informed and left out of the loop. Once she found out, the Karate Kid actress took to her Twitter and Facebook page to vent about her disappointment:
She even let out some steam on her Facebook fan page:
“WOW!!!! TV Guide is NOT including me on the cover with my cast members……..I am the female lead of a 3 member cast and I’m not included on the cover!!!!!! Do you see the shit I have to deal with in this business…..I cram to understand!!!!” [Source]
On a positive note, you can catch the premiere of Taraji’s new show, Person Of Interest on Thursday, Sept 22 at 9/8pm CST on CBS.
