Cookie Lyon has been bossing her way through Empire and no one has been able to stop her – but that’s because she hasn’t been put up against the ass-kicking telenovela characters we grew up watching. Let’s see how Cookie would stack up…

No distractions; no gimmicks. Valeria of Tierra de Pasiones just swings away and still looks amazing. #latinalife

She’s all about the surprise attack, girl.

Meanwhile, Cookie thinks she’s a Latina mom disciplining with that chancla.

But to Bárbara Grego, a chancla is child’s play.

She knows the power of a well-placed belt. Take notes.

So, anything left to say, Cookie?
