Ok, so yes I am a little late with the news. I have been busy this week and not exactly up on my current events. But last night, I happened to be watching Lifetime and about fell out of my seat when I saw the commercial for Steel Magnolias.
I LOVED the original movie. It’s one of those movies that I could watch over and over again….and cry and laugh..and cry some more. But when I saw that the new version was being made with an all African American cast with many of my favorite actresses, I was bubbling over with excitement. Here is a synopsis of the movie:
“In Lifetime’s contemporary version of the beloved stage play and 1989 film, “Steel Magnolias” chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana. Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children – and hair and nails – all the important topics that truly unite and celebrate women.”
So get your DVRs set, put the kids in bed, and get ready for the premiere at 9 pm ET this Sunday, October 7 on Lifetime. You will not want to miss this remake that stars: Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, and Condola Rashad. (Side note: Doesn’t this seem like a good movie for Loretta Devine?)
