Quotes

Shaniqua Summers Wells: I wasn't out of the house two hours before my mother turned my room into a den. She calls it a "den"; I call it a "shrine to her ego". When I was growing up, my mother's priorities were her career, her makeup, her hair, and then, her children, and that's the best thing I can say about her. To be fair, she did think about our hair and makeup. I got my first wig at age three. How many kids get that?

Take your jerry curl and drip on to buy this
19 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on "Lifetime" I then recorded it when it finally repeated. This is probably my favorite movie of all time. I just love the jokes especially Whoopi playing Ethel...I quote it all the time. "Here she is trying to make a comeback she gone! That's why you're making a documentary to try and help her *beep* come back" hahaha classic. I force everyone I know to watch this movie. The amount of guest stars is incredible and the songs I find myself singing as if the really existed. I love how they take stereotypes and make them funny also. Like Ivan and Snookie Tate. It is a classic and I have it on Tape and DVD...worth a watch or 40!
