Ta'Rhonda Jones: the new queen of spoilers?! The Empire star was E! News' red carpet reporter at the Empire season two premiere and she dug for that scoop! Did her costars relent? Of course…and of course not.

"Now you know I can't tell nothing," Taraji P. Henson told Ta'Rhonda. But a quick look changed her tune. "OK, let me say this: There will be lots of flashbacks to when she was in prison, so you'll get to see what made her so strong. She was strong when she went in! For somebody to serve 17 years of hardcore time and still come out and not lose their soul and not sellout, that's a hero to me."

What about big rumored guest stars like Oprah Winfrey and Mariah Carey?

"I'm not allowed to say…I'm really not. They've gagged me ‘cause I got in so much trouble talking in the past," executive producer and co-creator Lee Daniels revealed. "Our bosses have gagged us, but what I can say is it's not about the guest stars, it's about the series regulars."

As for what happens with Ta'Rhonda's character Porsha…"I'm going to kill you," Terrence Howard told Ta'Rhonda when asked what's coming up with Lucious.
