Which RHoA Star Had a Role in Waiting to Exhale? (PHOTO)
If you’re anything like us, there’s no better remedy for a breakup — or a bad date, or a long work week — than pouring a healthy glass of red wine, busting out some chocolates, and queuing up a good rom-com. And one old standby that we keep going back to is 1995’s Waiting to Exhale. But did you know that one of our fav Real Housewives of Atlanta girls actually had a small role in that movie?
There’s plenty of reasons to love this (almost 20-year-old) classic. For one, you’ve got Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine stretching their acting muscles. Plus, you’ve got man candy like Leon (Cynthia Bailey’s ex!), and an epic soundtrack, courtesy of the film’s star Whitney Houston. But our favorite thing might be that none other than Miss Kenya Moore also had a small role!
“#FF my first movie role #waitingtoexhale pictured here with #whitneyhouston who was so kind to me,” Kenya recently captioned a screenshot of her appearance in the movie, adding, “Thank you academy award winner #forestwhitaker for giving me a chance #angelabasset #lorettadevine #terrimcmillan all true professionals and real stars #blessedtohaveworkedwiththem.”
We have to say, the former Miss USA is really working it on-screen. That ‘90s hairstyle actually frames her face quite beautifully, and the dress is a more modest (though still sexy) look than we’ve grown used to. And we can’t believe we’ve got both Kenya and Whitney in one shot!
Time to go back and rewatch this one, eh?
