After the success of the first season of Fox’s Empire, season two is expected to be even bigger. Chris Rock, Mariah Carey, Ludacris, Pitbull, and Rosie O’Donnell will all be among the many guest stars in the new season, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Apparently the stars all “wanted to be part of the phenomenon,” Hollywood Reporter said.
Showrunner Ilene Chaiken, known for producing The L Word, said that “In the first season, you’re sort of begging people to come and work with you, and we heard a lot of ‘no.’ Then in season two, there were a lot of people who reached out to us and said, ‘Hey, I want to do something.’”
It is not yet known when O’Donnell will be making her appearance, but she seems to be keeping busy outside of the show.
O’Donnell and Tatum O’Neal, who deny being in a relationship, were seen spending time boating together in Florida earlier this week.
During the May issue of PEOPLE, O’Neal said that she now dates women.
“I like women,” she said. “I definitely have been dating mostly women recently…I think women are the most amazing creatures on Earth. They’re gentle, and also more intelligent than the men that I’ve met recently.”
On Tuesday, O’Neal tweeted “#vacations my wife and I woo woo!!! #Ilovemylife.” She quickly deleted it and then responded to a Twitter user who asked if she had gotten married that “no it was a joke.”
