Waiting to Exhale (1995)
Listen now
Take a deep breath. Wait. That’s what 2020 felt like. Now, exhale. That’s this episode. The Betties were holding their breath to review one of Terry McMillian’s masterpieces, Waiting to Exhale. And BOY did we exhale. Listen in to us completely break our podcast structure to wax poetic about the powerhouse performance of the FIREY Angela Basset, who may just need an award greater than the Golden Scrunchie (albeit the most hallowed award of all time). SOMEONE needed to recognize the performance that should have won a goddam Oscar. Not to mention the absolutely steaming hot wardrobe that had us shopping the internet for look alikes. This movie is all powerhouse females: the late great QUEEN OF THE NIGHT Whitney Houston, her majesty herself Angela Bassett, “This Christmas”’s Ma’Dere Loretta Devine, and the incredibly seductive Lela Rochon. Do some yoga, take your dog for a walk, pour yourself a glass of champagne, take a deep breath, and listen in.Starring: Whitney Houston, Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine, Lela Rochon.
