TV Guide Responds to Snubbing Taraji P. Henson from ‘Person of Interest’ Publicity!
Yesterday, Too Fab caught up with the Editor-in-Chief of TV Guide Magazine and TVGuidemagazine.com to get a clear understanding of why only the two male stars were the focus on the cover and here’s what she had to say:
“I made an editorial decision to do a story about the relationship between the two male characters on ‘Person of Interest’ and that’s who I was going to put on the cover. That has been my decision all along, ever since I saw the pilot. We’re certainly fans of Taraji Henson and her storyline on the show was never intended to be the focus of our cover story. I don’t know where there was a misunderstanding about this, but it’s been clear to everyone from the start. I don’t make decisions on who is put and not put on the cover based on race or gender.
She also added:
This week’s cover September 26 issue features the three stars of ‘Charlie’s Angels’ — Minka Kelly, Annie Illonzeh and Rachael Taylor. We are not pursuing a cover of ‘Person of Interest’ at this time
The good news is, CBS added two scene photos of Taraji to the ‘Person Of Interest’ page since yesterday.
But, as far as TV guides response, it sounds like a bunch of bullsh*t. Taraji was a great addition to the show and should have been included on the cover. It would have definitely pulled more attention that way. I sure wasn’t interested in watching a storyline about two men…would you be?
Anywho, Enjoy the photos! The series premieres tonight!
