Henson says:

Life has changed for me dramatically. Who thought Cookie would bring me this kind of notoriety? This is the type of character that people judge — she went to jail she sold drugs. But what happens? (People) run to her? Blows me away every time. That goes to show people like real.

Henson shared her excitement on Instagram, writing:
