Also, Mary revealed to Blackfilm.com that her next film will be Kasi Lemmons‘ musical ‘Black Nativity’ which also stars Angela Bassett.  She says about her role, “I play Platinum Fro and she’s an angel.”   Nice!

And in case you missed it......

Both Angela and Mary appeared on "The View" recently and they discussed what they learned about the phenomenal women they played during the making of the film.  And yes, Angela confirms there IS a script for Waiting To Exhale 2.  But, she has no idea when/if it will be shot.

 

“Betty & Coretta” premieres February 2 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
