Terry McMillan is unsure how to proceed with the Waiting to Exhale sequel in the wake of Whitney Houston's death, but says the studio has made it clear they want to proceed...
Terry tells The Huffington Post
“Myself and [screenwriter] Lori Lakin Hutcherson wrote drafts for the film and then Whitney passed away and so now the studio is trying to take a moment to think about how best to proceed. They’ve made it crystal clear that they want to proceed, but it’s just a matter of how. I have mixed feelings about which way might be best to tell the story."
"I feel terrible about Whitney, just like everybody else, but there’s a part of me that also feels that she would want the film to go on. That’s just my gut feeling. And it has nothing to do with me not having an allegiance to her or respect for her. I just have a feeling that Whitney would love from Heaven, to sit up there and watch who else can do the character.”
