They may be as beautiful as magnolias, but make no mistake, these southern ladies are made of pure steel: Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye, Alfre Woodard and Phylicia and Condola Rashad star in Kenny Leon’s beautiful remake of Steel Magnolias. The made-for-TV movie (based on Robert Harling’s 1987 off-Broadway play and Herbert Ross’ 1989 film) airs October 7 on Lifetime, and fans will not be disappointed! Lifetime hosted a world premiere screening at New York’s Paris Theater on October 3, followed by a lavish party at the Plaza Hotel. Broadway.com was there to catch up with Shelby, M’Lynn, Truvy and of course Miss Ouiser. Check out the photos below, and tune in to Lifetime to see the film.
