Exhale Shoop Shoop….

Whitney Houston’s Exhale Shoop Shoop is still one of my favorite songs to listen to, especially during my time of self reflection.



Having to sit still this year has caused my anxiety and OCD to be out of control.. ( I’m forever cleaning and spraying) but seriously outside of that I’ve spent this year exhaling.

You see I’m almost 50!!!

And I’ve finally learned to embrace who Bea really is without giving two cents about what others think.

Exhale Shoop Shoop

Who is Bea? A girl born in Tchula,MS and raised on the south side of Chicago. So I’m a country girl with big city dreams.

I’m a girl who was raised in the church, but snuck out to hang on the block while my mother was at work. So I love God and trap music.

Exhale Shoop Shoop

I’m a girl who’s never felt like she belonged, who always felt like there was more out there, who’s protective of those she love, a cheerleader for everyone, but never a cheerleader for herself. A girl who for years dimmed her light so others could shine brighter…. but no more! That did nothing but had me frustrated and in bondage.
So this year as I sat in the house I did the hard work of working on my self. Not my physical self but my mental and spiritual self… I purchased a diary, and started re-reading my Bible from the beginning and exhaled.

Waiting To Exhale to this day is still one of those movies I can watch over and over again.

So to read the news that Lee Daniels is turning the iconic movie into a tv series had me overjoyed.

Waiting to Exhale

Author Terry McMillan, who wrote the book took to Twitter to share the news.

It’s set to be written by sisters, producer Attica Locke (EmpireLittle Fires Everywhere) and TV actress Tembi Locke, and directed by Anthony Hemingway (Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.). 

The film starred Whitney Houston, Angela Bassett, Lela Rochon and Loretta Devine, I wonder who they will get to play these ladies in the updated tv version.

The soundtrack was also iconic, produced by Babyface it gave us Exhale (Shoop Shoop), Count On Me, Sitting Up In My Room, and Not Gon’ Cry and It Hurts Like Hell.

Do any of ya’ll remember when the cast was on the Oprah Winfrey Show to promote the movie and Oprah asked Whitney about Bobby and Whitney said,” we’re hear to talk about Exhale.” Now, Whitney is my girl, but I couldn’t believe she handled Oprah like that… but that was Whitney chile….

Waiting to Exhale

Exhale was a box office success, making over $67 million in North America, and garnered a MTV Movie Award nomination for Breakthrough Performance for Lela Rochon.
