They seemed to really hit it off and Michael is really intrigued by her.” The report in Star goes on to say that Taraji is smitten with the talk show host – but she is trying to take things slow.Both Taraji Henson and Michael Strahan have both been pretty unlucky in love in the past.Since the new hit TV show debuted on FOX, America has fallen in love with Taraji’s character, Cookie Lyon, and apparently so has Michael Strahan.Michael met Cookie when she guest-starred as a cohost on his daytime talk show Live With Kelly And Michael, and apparently they totally hit it off!According to the April 13th edition of Star Magazine, “Michael flirted openly with Taraji on camera, but he wasn’t kidding – off camera he kept asking her ‘when can I take you out?’ Taraji initially brushed off his advances but Mike told her that he was very serious.” Star’s inside sources went on to explain, “The two ended up having an intimate dinner that night at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel…and they have more dates on the books!Until you hear it from me, it’s false.” This isn’t the first time, Henson has been linked to someone publicly.
Along with her captivating performance in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" as Brad Pitt's on-screen mom, she also had Hollywood talking with her date for the Golden Globes after-party, LA Lakers player Lamar Odom.She died on June 28, 2003, three years to the day before his baby boy. Odom reached into his size-16 hightop and pulled out the crumpled potato chip bag. He’s a point guard in a power forward’s body, long enough to anchor the post but coordinated enough to lead the break.Maybe Grandma Mildred is to thank for one of the most irrepressible personalities in the NBA, a 6'10" forward who, at 29, has been in the league for 10 seasons and famous for nearly half his life, and yet still wears his mitt when he goes to baseball games in the hope of catching a foul ball, collects pro wrestling figurines as a hobby and asks the staffer behind him on the team’s plane for permission to recline his seat because “my legs are kind of long.” More than an hour into the autograph signing in Huntington Beach, Destiny spotted a bulge in her dad’s left sneaker. The problem with trying to engineer another Odom is programming what he’s going to say.That interest reached some seriously high levels last week when Henson was spotted with football player Kelvin Hayden in Miami.Hayden, a 32-year-old Chicago native, previously played for both the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts, but is currently a free agent. I know you just cannot have two narcissists together.
