Waiting To Exhale Part II: Getting To Happy

Terry McMillan announced via Twitter that the sequel to her 1995 smash hit, Waiting to Exhale, is all set and ready for the big screen. Getting to Happy will reportedly, and hopefully, hit theaters next year, and both Loretta Divine and Angela Bassett have confirmed that they will be a part of the upcoming production. I wonder if they’ve gotten Lela Rochon and Whitney Houston to come back for round two?
The sequels plot is described as:
“…Savannah, Gloria, Bernadine, and Robin fifteen years later. Each is at her own midlife crossroads: Savannah has awakened to the fact that she’s made too many concessions in her marriage, and decides to face life single again-at fifty-one. Bernadine has watched her megadivorce settlement dwindle, been swindled by her husband number two, and conned herself into thinking that a few pills will help distract her from her pain. Robin has an all-American case of shopaholism, while the big dream of her life-to wear a wedding dress- has gone unrealized. And for years, Gloria has taken happiness and security for granted. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time can change everything. All four are learning to heal past hurts and to reclaim their joy and their dreams; but they return to us full of spirit, sass, and faith in one another. They’ve exhaled: now they are learning to breathe.
I'm not sure if Whitney will return but I sure hope so. I can't wait for the sequel but why the hell did it take so long. Will you go see the sequel?
