My choice, my damn business.
Publicist: Your trial run has been fantastic, and the producers want you to be a permanent co-host. They just need to know that Lucious and Empire are finally behind you.
Cookie: That's none of their damn business, baby.
Publicist: Is it a problem? Do you even know where Lucious is?
Cookie: I don't okay, but nobody gets to tell Cookie Lyon what she can and cannot do.
Publicist: Can you stop referring to yourself in the third person?
Cookie: Well, Cookie Lyon loves it, so get used to it. Look, I am proud of what my family did with Empire. And Lucious is my husband.
Publicist: But you left him. That was your choice. Why not make it public?
Cookie: My choice, my damn business.
