Exclusive Empire first-look photos from Jamal's wedding. That's wedding bells you hear for Jamal and Kai. On Wednesday's episode of Empire, the two characters who just reconciled aren't wasting any time in getting hitched. EW has exclusive first look photos from Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and Kai's (Toby Onwumere) big day, which includes Chaka Khan performing and Becky (Gabourey Sidibe) officiating. Speaking to EW ahead of season 5, Smollett shared his excitement over the story line between Jamal and Kai, which also included the reveal of Kai being HIV-positive. "I think that this season we found a way to break new ground and do something that has never been done on television before and kind of speak about and to the people that I represent and that I care about so deeply," he said back in August. "Pay attention to Jamal's storyline this year, man, it's going to be groundbreaking. You ain't gonna see anything like it. I will say this, it's never been done on television. You've never seen two black men in this way." Coincidentally, Jamal's wedding will be Smollett's last episode of the season, and possibly ever. The actor was removed from the final two episodes of season 5 following his arrest in relation to an alleged attack against him. The charges were subsequently dropped, but his future on the series still remains unclear. Empire airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. (Entertainment Weekly)

Southern Charm New Orleans Season 2 Trailer: It's Fun and Games Until People Start Getting Remarried. So, you got a divorce and are still starring alongside your ex on a reality show. What could go wrong? If the El Moussas can do it on Flip or Flop, why can't Reagan and Jeff Charleston do it on Southern Charm New Orleans? "My secret to happiness is getting divorced," Jeff says. What starts out fine, quickly devolves. In the trailer, it's all fun and games for Jeff, Reagan, Tamica Lee, Barry Smith, Justin Reese, Jon Moody, Rachel McKenzie and Kelsey Nichols. "We've got sex appeal, with my friends, there's a good time around every corner," Tamica says. Until the fun runs out -- and you don't need a tarot card reader to see why. Sure, they're divorced, but that doesn't mean Jeff and Reagan are drama free, especially when Reagan moves on and looks for the chance to have the family she's always wanted. Jeff even pulls a Colton Underwood and takes off running at one point in the trailer. The new season features Tamica embracing a career transition -- she's going from early morning anchor to afternoon show lead -- so she can have more time for motherhood and her marriage. Meanwhile, her husband Barry is expanding his fitness empire. Justin's career is on fire, but in his personal life, he's feeling the pressure from Kesley. Jon is still making a name for himself in the art world and Rachel continues being the person everyone turns to for advice. "Pack your s -- t, it's a category five hurricane," Tamica says in the trailer. Southern Charm New Orleans premieres Sunday, June 2 at 9 p.m. on Bravo. (Eonline)
