/ March 27, 2013

Waiting To Exhale fans were left in a state of confusion after the sudden death of Whitney Houston. The singer, who played TV exec Savannah, was set to join her three co-stars in a long-awaited sequel before passing in 2012. Since then, excitement surrounding the project has died down, leaving many to think it will never happen.

Golden Globe winner Angela Bassett was spotted on the red carpet for the premiere of her latest film Olympus Has Fallen, looking gorgeous in a strapless yellow dress. When asked about the film’s status, she assured fans that it’s still in the works. “They’re still writing. One of our original producers, from the first Exhale is on board,” she said. “So that’s a good sign, but they’re still working on the script. It’s just how to deal with it [Whitney’s loss]. And probably the best way to deal with it is just deal with it. It’s like what happens in life, in a way. Life is about life in passing, living and dying, winning and losing. So that’s what I know so far.”
