Loretta Devine recently spoke about the Waiting to Exhale Movie sequel and how it might look more like a tribute to Whitney Houston when it finally hits theaters. S2S reports:
“Theyâ€™re trying to put together Waiting to Exhale 2, but now I think the focus is for it to be a tribute to her, which would be wonderful if we could pull that off,â€ Loretta told KTTV TV in Los Angeles.
Apparently, the sequel, presumably titled Getting to Happy after the Terry McMillan novel, is still happening, but itâ€™s not clear what will happen with Whitneyâ€™s character, Savannah.
â€œWe donâ€™t know if theyâ€™ll introduce a new character,â€ said Loretta, who noted that Exhale co-star Gregory Hines will be missed in the sequel as well.
He died years ago; although, his character does appear briefly in the follow-up book. READ MORE

Montell Jordan says he’s up to date on his taxes. The former R&B star tells TMZ that he’s paid the more than 600-thousand dollars he owes from 1999 to 2001. Last month, the IRS filed a Federal Tax Lien against the “This Is How We Do It” singer claiming they had yet to receive their money. Montell, however, says he paid the debt years ago by selling his music catalog. He explains that the money is currently frozen in an account administered by the U.S. Trustee Program. Jordan filed for bankruptcy in 2004, and is currently fighting some of the IRS penalties that he’s incurred. Montell says he expects his money to be released to the IRS in the next few weeks when he’s done negotiating over the penalties.
