BLEU Magazine’s Issue 41 cover man Trai Byers recently revealed he’d found the love of his life in his FOX ‘Empire’ co-star Grace Gealey. The two thespians made if official by tying the knot in a private ceremony just this past week on Thursday, April 14th. While production for the second half of season two wrapped a few weeks ago, there’s plenty of press to be done to keep the momentum plus now make time for their honeymoon.
Gealey, 31 and Byers, 32, announced their engagement last July and were this month inside a mansion on Grand Cayman Island surrounded by 50 or so close family and friends according to a source who witnessed the nuptials. No word on whether all of the ‘Empire’ cast was in attendance, but as you know Gealey plays Anika Calhoun, aka “Boo Boo Kitty,” a season one arch nemesis to Taraji P. Henson’s character Cookie Lyon, Byers’ character Andre’s mother.
In previews ahead of this week’s new episode, some serious secrets will soon be revealed about Ms. Anika and the apparent heir to the Empire dynasty she carries in her womb. Could this be art imitating life or life imitating art? Be sure to tweet live with us @BleuMagazine and @EmpireFOX on Wednesday night at 9PM EST. For more on the show, visit FOX.com/Empire.
