In this behind the scenes video posted to Empire’s Youtube page, TV star Eva Longoria dished on her new character for the hit show entering its third season on FOX. According to Longoria, she plays a stuffy Sara Palin-esque character by the name of Charlotte Frost, who gives off cold shoulder vibes. In the show, Frost is the head of the Las Vegas gaming commission. Longoria reveals what may be a major plot point when she says “I do have a scene where I slap somebody so, get ready for that. I won’t tell you who, but it is a lion.” The video then displays some possible people it may be, and Taraji P. Henderson’s fierce character Cookie, who no one would argue against calling “a lion,” is one of those possibilities. Folks in the comments section had lots to say about it.

We kinda wanna see how it goes down, too.
Another thought she didn’t stand a chance.

True, Cookie is fierce.

I don’t know what Antoinette is talking about, but she clearly knows her stuff.
All in all, we’re as excited to see Longoria on the show as she is.

If she doesn’t survive the slap, we got your back, girl.
