Can her strong face ass act? just wasting her husbands money, on all types of fuckery. I don't even believe she really loves that man, but after Fushia she needed to revamp her image. Something about their constant love fest in the media, just reeks of fakery, Russel was the nice guy, who's probably wack in bed, that fell in love with her image, till he found out how cold she was. I just read the energy between and ain't buying the "couples goals".

Color Purple is a classic. No need to remake it.

I was happier reading this blog when Warrior woman was in the psyche ward and not posting. Her hatefulness, love of Trump, promoting the divide and astrology are boring. She reads all the posts and copies. Now she discredits a marriage because she's bitter.

Let me guess...she's going to play Squeak.

@Niya - the only thing I can remember her being in (and I know she's done a few movies that I haven't seen) was playing herself in The Game. I guess she was okay but going at it with Lauren London's character wasn't much of a stretch.

So there must be an Oprah and Steven Spielberg clone producing this, because Spielberg's pedophile azz was executed and Oprah is at Tierra Del Fuego

They got the cast all wrong.. Cee Cee should play shug..Taragge should play Ciely ..Heer is not silly enough to play Squeak ,unless she is good at acting and can play a silly airhead..

How many times are they gonna remake this? Thank goodness Ava DuVernay and this new crew of film makers ain’t into making all these old-azz remakes.

Will this be the Broadway adaptation into a movie (musical)? Or, will it be a remake of the book and the 80s film? The distinction matters because Ciara can't sing worth a damn - & seeing as how Chloe Bailey is being cast as the younger version (Nettie; Ciara casted as the adult version), I'm wondering if either women will be singing or dancing - since neither can act. All I remember is, Ciara being cast in the early aughts as Patti LaBelle's daughter in "Mama, I wanna sing..." And lawd help me, that was the biggest casting failure in centuries! And Ciara had the nerve to bring her whisper singing to that role - knowing Ms. LaBelle was playing her singing mama smh.

But, it'll be interesting to see Ciara play a role where her beauty, sex appeal, and dancing / singing talent isn't at the forefront. And the same goes for Chloe Bailey; because everytime I see Chloe she's dropping it low, low, low...while perfecting stripper moves ..like Ciara...

Halle Bailey is being cast as the younger Nettie, not Chloe.

Ciara is playing the older Nettie--I just can't see it. She is terribly miscast, as that character--hell, all of them requires some depth.

Remember when Ciara was the queen of Crunk? Go head Cici!

Bad move on Ciara's part, stay away from Oprah! She needs you, more than you need her.

NO MORE REMAKES.
Now, I got that out of my system. Cici is no dramatic actor. How is she going play this part pregnant? She also has to take off that 100yd wig. Next let's see her get ugly and ball headed. I'm not sure she can pull it off.
