Terrence Howard, the star of Fox's "Empire," thinks the show needs to push the boundaries further. He told Entertainment Weekly that the hip-hop-centric show needs to be more realistic and should even use a certain racial epithet that many find offensive.

"Why is TV showing something different from the reality of the world? Why is there a thing called censorship that stops people from hearing everyday talk?" the 44-year-old actor said.

Howard added: "I want to be a truth sayer. I want to raise the bar. I want to get rid of this . . . [expletive] word called PC. I think it's a gate for bigotry because as long as you're politically correct you can say anything you want but feel some way different." His co-star Taraji P. Henson, 44, told TMZ the series should not use the N-word.

Rose holds no grudges

Amber Rose recently opened up to "Entertainment Tonight" about the Twitter beef she had with Khloé Kardashian and how it hurt her feelings. "I don't hate Khloé. I don't hate her!" she said.

"I can understand why it came across the wrong way to her," Rose said of their feud that started when she dissed the 30-year-old Kardashian's sister, Kylie Jenner, 17, and her relationship with rapper Tyga, 25.

Rose, 31, said they could have behaved differently: "I get it, but that's a phone call she could have had with me. She didn't have to tweet 11 times and try to humiliate me."
