Hot Shots: The Cast of Sparkle Spotted At Detroit Lions Game

Published: Monday 24th Oct 2011 by Rashad

Whitney Houston and crew (Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick) took a break from the set of their reboot of the 1976 musical ‘Sparkle’ to enjoy a Detroit Lions game.  The movie, also set in Detroit, began production this month with Sparks assuming the lead role and famed actor Mike Epps filling out the cast.

As reported here, while Cee Lo Green and R. Kelly are both signed on to join Houston and Sparks’ contributions to the film’s soundtrack, the ‘Crazy’ crooner will also be lending his acting chops to the movie.

    Is that Whitney or a 25 year old Starlett? I’m hearing great things about her studio session with producer Harvey Mason. He tweeted she nailed her vocals

    Only Nippy will show up at a football game wearing pearls! That’s my diva. Ms. Houston looking good. Jordin’s crazy in that shot, lol

    Whitney looks kinda thick in the face! B**** has not lost weight. I see she still got that belly of hers goin on. Isn’t that dress from the ILTY tour? Looks really familiar with those shoulder straps. SMH, she still recycling clothes from over a year ago — and that white watch too. For a normal non-rich middle class person that’s nothing unusual but when you’re worth nearly a 100 mil and a celeb, that’s pretty cheesy and cheap to recycle clothes from a year and a half ago. WTF??

    Rest In Peace Aaliyah…

  16. gold October 25, 2011

    @Boogie Beeesh…That’s Omari Hardwick. He played Janet’s husband in the movie For Colored Girls.

    Whitney looks absolutely stunning; young, vibrant, fresh and most of all… happy! Whitney’s voice, music and beauty has gotten me through the roughest times in life and for that she’ll always have my love, support and loyalty. She’s my Queen!

    whys whitney part of the soudntrack? she cant sing


  20. del October 26, 2011

    well i hope they gave that crazy b**** a drug test and hair follicle sample before she entered that set who knows by the end of the shoot she may have jordin sparks rolling a blunt and taking the cast to the local crack dens

    can she still sing ? hey just asking

  21. Daniel October 26, 2011

    Whitney is still a fantastic singer, I actually saw her in Melbourne Australia last year and she blew the roof off the arena. If the film’s a hit, it’ll be down to Whitney as she’ll bring a million people into cinemas to watch it, including me.
