Oh, tears spring to our eyes at the mere THOUGHT of Robert Harling's heart-wrenching love-filled drama that is Steel Magnolias!
And while we adore the new cast that make up the forthcoming Lifetime remake of the 1989 film, we must ask WHY remake such a classic, sentimental production?
But, originality is a dying art and we understand that twerks on original works can be just as powerful, if not more so, than their initial inspirations!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) for Tony nominee Kenny Leon's version of Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, and Adepero Oduye.
Obvi we will be glued to out televisions with an armament of kleenex on hand, whenever Lifetime decides to air this epic tale!
