Camilla's in charge
Last week we learned that Keem's ex Camilla (Naomi Campbell) had secretly married Empire board leader Mimi Whiteman and was scheming to wrest control of the company while Mimi is undergoing chemotherapy. Cookie gives Camilla a new nickname -- Ol' Resting Bitchface -- and we think it's going to catch on.
The first item on ORB's agenda is slashing budgets left and right, which, honestly, is a reasonable business tactic. Less reasonable is her obsession with her 22-year-old ex's age-appropriate new girlfriend. "She's pathetically in love with you," Camilla informs Hakeem, though from what we've seen of Laura (Jamila Velazquez) so far, she's the most level-headed player in the game.
Still, Camilla makes it clear that she wants to help Hakeem prove his CEO chops, and confirms that she is literally waiting for Mimi to die so that they can be together again. The joke's on her, though, because Keem is a double agent for the Lyon clan.
