Not even two months after movie lovers were first sent into a frenzy about a TV-adapted reboot of classic 90’s film, ‘Waiting to Exhale’ (which celebrated its 25th anniversary in December), speculation began mounting about who among today’s crop of actresses would float the revamp and who among its surviving cast (Lela Rochon, Loretta Devine, Angela Bassett) would reprise their original roles.
When Devine first broke the news of the venture, she expressed interest in reassuming her role as the feisty hairdresser “Gloria ‘Glo’ Matthews” (click here to see that).
More recently, the Academy and EMMY award nominated Bassett visited CBS morning talk show, ‘The Talk,’ to dish about her interest in reuniting with the film’s writer – Terry McMillan – to reprise her portrayal of the fiery “Bernadine Harris.”

As we previously reported, the movie’s reboot will come in the form of an ABC television show directed by Lee Daniels.
