Exactly! Everybody digs them both, so we're happy that we can bring you guys an official clip from the upcoming remake of Steel Magnolias, starring the Queen herself!
Helmed by the Lifetime Channel, the movie, which tells the story of six Louisiana women who come together to deal with tragedy and difficult times, will also be starring Condola Rashad and Phylicia Rashad.
We've seriously been jonesing for some new Queen Latifah material for awhile now, and we're pumped to see what she can do with the role.
Check it out for yourself (above)!! Looks fab to us!
Tony nominee Kenny Leon's remake of the 1989 emotional drama Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah, Condola Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye, and Phylicia Rashad, will air on Lifetime this October 7th!
This cult film — originally starring Julia Roberts, Sally Fields, Dolly Parton, Shirly MacLaine, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis — centers around a group of Louisiana women who habitually come together at a local salon. The story explores the importance of friendship in the face of life's great tragedies.
We're VERY excited to see this modern take on such a beloved classic… and we instantly adore any film featuring The Queen!
Although we're not sure if Q. Latifah can deliver Sally Field's "Whyyyyyy" cry in quite the same fashion…

Lifetime Networks president and GM Nancy Dubuc said of the ladies:
Sounds like Queen Latifah had some serious fun in South Beach last week, when shit hit up the gay club Twist early Tuesday morning to see the drag show at the venue.
Clad in a spectacular pink-and-green camo Spandex onesie, one of the performers had just completed their routine when the Queen "came out of the shadows,” and “clapping, smiling and grooving,” got on stage and started kissing the drag queen’s cheeks. According to the sources in the place, the “gay boys in the club were going wild” for Latifah, who was there with a large posse.
But of course! The Queen never goes anywhere solo!
Hey, next time we are both in town, we MUST go to this together, girl! That would just be EPIC!
We knew she was overwhelmingly consumed with her horrible addictions...
But had no idea Demi Lovato's trouble with illegal drugs and alcohol ran so deep!
In a new candid interview, the 21-year-old singer is speaking out about her past substance abuse issues, confessing she used to manipulate people (including a sober companion) to believe every front and lie she threw at them. She shared:
“I’m very, very good at manipulating people and that was something that I did in my disease, I would manipulate everyone around me. There were times I would just continue to lie, so that everything looked OK on the outside."
And then Demi-corn dropped a maJOR coke bomb!
The former Disney starlet was so buried in her drug habits, she couldn't go an hour without doing cocaine!
