3Whitney Houston to Return to Film, Molls to Return to Happiness

Yes, I did just refer to myself in the third person. It’s Friday and this post involves a Waiting to Exhale sequel, so if you have a problem with that, you can deal.

Sorry, anything Angela Bassett-related makes me VERY sassy.

Guys! They’re making a Waiting to Exhale sequel and it’s official. Angela confirmed the news last night on the red carpet premiere of her new movie Jump the Broom, which i am soooo going to see.

Here are the deets from TheYBF.com:

The actress confirmed that in the sequel, “Getting to Happy,” Whitney Houston, Loretta Devine, and Lela Rochon will all reprise their roles.

She said, “[Terry McMillian] wrote ‘Getting to Happy’ and she’s written the screenplay.” The she added that “Loretta, Lela, [and] Whitney,” are all on-board.

She also confirmed that Forest Whitaker will return as director. But Waiting To Exhale isn’t the only great Black film returning to the movies. You will soon see remakes of Juice and Sparkle on the big screen as well.

This was the kind of news I needed today. How amazing is this movie going to be? Of course I mean “amazing” in the kind of way that the Lifetime Original Movie The Client List was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyable but kind of a train wreck. Whitney can barely stand these days, let alone act. Really looking forward to this.

26Rick Fox Is So Bizarrely Hot

This man is neither black nor white. He is bronzed.

He’s seriously, like, statuesque. I just adore him.

Anyway, he showed up to watch Angela Bassett take her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Angela Basset got old. I mean, she’s still beautiful, but she’s old. This scares me. If Angela Bassett can get old, so can I. That’s worrisome.
