In life, things don’t always happen overnight, but if you continue to persevere, they often work out in in your favor. “Things can work out if you’re smart, but my greatest virtue is patience,” said Sidibe. “I was with the company for three years, right up until I got the part in Precious. I took what I learned about secrets, shame, and pleasure, and applied it to the real world around me.”

There two beefs that were the topic of conversation Sunday night. And, while one’s been squashed, another has irreparably ruined a friendship.

Empire actress Gabourey Sidibe joined Andy Cohen and Kim Zolciak on Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where the trio dished on Sunday’s shocking The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion finale and the rumored feud between Taraji P. Henson and Nia Long.

Sidibe laughed off rumors that Henson and Long had beef on the Empire set, rumors that sprang up back in March after TMZ reported that the show’s makeup and hair team allegedly filed a complaint against the actress. 

Pointing out gossip’s double standard, the actress joked that no one ever starts rumors about castmates Jussie Smollett and Trai Byers, adding, “We like each other. We’re not really beefing.” 

Sidibe also joined Zolciak in discussing the shocking The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion finale. 

“I think that she has been embarrassed by a lot of things on the show for a while,” said the actress, explaining why she feels Phaedra may have started an upsetting rumor about Kandi Burruss attempting to drug and rape Porsha Williams. “I think she tried to channel out of that into trying to embarrass Kandi and she can’t cop to it.”

Zolciak added, “She’s sneaky. I think she’s sneaky and I think she’s gotta be on something to just have no expression and no emotion. She’s just not there.”

Even NeNe Leakes weighed in, tweeting, "FINALLY! Been happening for yearsssssssssssssssssssss! FINALLY"

Bravo has already renewed the show for another season, but Phaedra's fate on the reality show is currently up in the air. Rumors are swirling that she's been fired, but her rep denies those allegations. 

Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
