It seems like everyone and their mom is guest-starring on the new season of Empire. The latest addition to the hip-hop soap opera will be none other than Vivica A. Fox, and her character is going to be related to Cookie. Fox, whose most recent television appearances include Celebrity Apprentice and Mob Wives, is set to play an older sibling of the cherished Lyon family matriarch.

While no details about Fox’s characters have been released, the actress will make her appearance in the eighth episode of the new season, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Fox will join a star-studded roster of guest stars, which already includes Mariah Carey, Chris Rock, Ludacris, Marisa Tomei, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz and many other hot names. That list is seriously getting out of control, but I am not complaining. Empire returns on September 23.
