Speaking of Jenny's I miss Jenny Jones.

Dena said...

Queen Latifa

sandybrook said...

I miss Sally Jessy Raphael more though.

ethorne said...

Latifah fits the best.

Yep, Dana.
But I still luvhur

Tricia S said...

Whoopi has a ton more TV credits dating back to the 80's(moonlighting/a different world...then obviously Star Trek...yes she's always done films..but Latifah started as a rapper turned actress
Whoopi has spoken about drug use/selling days....

Tricia S said...

There'd be a mention of her music if it was queen methinks.that was her starting point

sandybrook said...

Yeah that's why I gave the option to Queen because she used rap to do better.

Jenny doesn't believe in drugs, though!

Ay said...

Queen mentioned "boosting" back in the day, never selling dope. Surely she would have bragged on it in her rhymes for the street cred lol I like Whoopi for this.

Sally messy (typo but staying) Raphael was fab.
Jenny Jones got into a lot of trouble over the man who committed suicide.
Wasn't Ricki very young when she started acting?
Queenie sounds good

Queen Latifs father and brother were both cops. Not her. I like Whoopie for this.

Freya said...

Committed suicide? Hadn't heard about that on. but there was one where a guy killed another guy because he was gay and had a crush on him.

Freya said...

I think this was Whoopi too. It fits.

sandybrook said...

It wasn't a suicide it was a murder. The show was "secret crushes" and one guy's secret crush was a man and when he found out he killed the guy who had the crush.

Tina Mallette said...

was Queen Latifah ever a television actress, she was a rapper turned movie actress turned talk show host

Ay said...

@Tina

You never heard of Living Single? That along with Martin and New York Undercover were all on Fox and the best black shows of the 90's.

skippy said...

Yep Freya & sandy. My mistake. Just remembered the issue between the 2 guys. Weren't they friends?
BTW police generally have the best drugs. Just saying.

auntliddy said...

Wendy williams is my guess. Queen wld never!!!

toastiewarm said...

LOL! :-D @FSP

sandybrook said...

Yeah they had been friends until the killer was blindsided by that on the show. Skippy if I remember right, he stormed off the stage and killed him the day after the show was telecast on tv,

Jennmcn said...

Definitely Whoopi, I can see her moving lots of weed and some coke too back in the day.

BeckyMae said...

Oh yeah I remember that...it was full on!

At first I thought Queen LatifaH and laughed at the Whoopi guess, but now that I think about it I think she's the right guess. A teen parent on welfare and learning the hard way to survive. LatifaH was always pretty much on the straight and narrow. She, Martin Lawrence, Kid and Play and Salt N Pepa were all friends, most worked together and swore they'd make it famous.

I believe Ms. Latifah had a brother who was a policeman. I thought they were pretty close. Do not think she sold drugs. Besides she has been successful since the 80s It would have to be a very old blind vice

Whatever happened to her? She was great.

Ms B'have said...

Oh she was awesome. Those spectacles!
