Here’s your first Pop Culture Fix of the week, friends!
+ Whoopi Goldeberg says a script for Sister Act 3 is eminent and also that she is ready to have some damn fun. That means asking KeKe Palmer, Lizzo, and “the girl with the chest” to join the film. (That means Nicki Minaj, whose name she forgot for a second. I understand. Last week my Long Covid brain fog made my aphasia go berserk and I couldn’t remember Thanos’ name. I kept calling him Mr. Snappy until my wife could figure out what I was talking about.) I’m not sure about Lizzo, though I feel pretty confident she’ll say yes, but when Keke was on The View last year, she told Whoopi she was available for any job with her, any time.
+ Here’s a hilarious gossipy twist about that TikTok last week where Madonna said she’s gay. Apparently she tried to STEAL ELVIRA’S GIRLFRIEND? We just are who we are as a people.
+ Every day is a good day to celebrate Cheryl Dunye.
Let’s celebrate @cdunye, director of various #QUEENSUGAR episodes in seasons 2 and 4, as she speaks about her journey from film director and professor to working in television and what Queen Sugar has meant to her and her career. pic.twitter.com/jkoUrDRaOW

+ I absolutely love this: Danielle Perez came out to her parents during her comedy special.

+ When Natalie read this TVLine scoop on 9-1-1, she said, “Uh oh.” And I agree. “I am hearing that the sixth episode of Season 6, airing in late October, will be a flashback-heavy episode a la “When Hen Met Karen” — interspersed with the 118 racing to the rescue when Karen’s lab suffers an massive explosion on the day Denny tags along to work with her.”
