One of my favorite characters played by the Queen is Cleo from Set it Off 🙂 Her ability to completely transform into any role from character in Set it Off to Steel Magnolia’s or Chicago is remarkable.
Her red carpet looks are always classy and perfectly fitting for a queen. It showcases femininity and strength at its best from flowing floor length masterpieces to structured knee length frocks.
Now with her own talk show… The Queen enters our lives in a new light. “The hourlong talk show, produced on Sony‘s movie lot in Culver City, ranked as the second most popular debut of a talk show since “Dr. Oz” went on the air in 2009, according to preliminary audience totals released Tuesday.” Which was stated on the LATIMES.com
