Rucuss staffNovember 2, 2011

Actress Taraji P. Henson and singer Tyrese stopped by the Wendy Williams show this morning (Wednesday).

The Academy Award nominated actress graced Ms. Williams stage to promote her new CBS show “Person of Interest.” Tyrese also tagged along to perform and promote his new album “Open Invitation.”The two also gave a few details about their upcoming John Singleton project.

Henson, 41, spoke candidly about her love life and even set the record straight about about Tyrese, Drake, Terrence Howard and Common.

Here’s a few excerpts:

Did she ever date Tyrese?

Not all all – ever. I promise you. If I did I would tell [you]. First of all, I am a horrible liar, these big ole’ eyes will tell on me. Oh gosh. I can’t  lie.

If Tyrese and I crossed that line the love wouldn’t be there. The  chemistry wouldn’t be there because Taraji and Tyrese did it.

On dating Common:

Okay I’ll tell you the truth, Common and I did date. All the rest no.

Did she ever date Drake?

Drake was a friend. It was cute because I knew he liked me and I kept looking at him like ‘If you were ten years older, boy whew’ but no. I couldn’t because he is seven years older than my son.

Did she date Terrence Howard?

Terrence and I never ever [dated]. Here’s my thing, I don’t mix business with pleasure and I’m saying this to the young girls out there that want to get into the business. Whatever you do in your private life should be just that, private. If you are a hoe, girl be a hoe behind the scenes because if you are having sex with them, why would they want to work with you again? Think about  it.
