You were compelled to look! This April Fools’ Day was filled with jokes, but LisaRaye was the focus of attention after one Twitter user mistook her for civil rights icon Rosa Parks.
“I thought LisaRaye was Rosa Parks, Ni**a!!! LMAOOOOO They Do you understand?Kary wrote, “Look at LisaRaye.” “Can yall please look at LisaRaye!!” he tweeted, along with a photo of LisaRaye standing next to Rosa.
“Why is she dressed in black and white like it’s 1955?” People were laughing and speculating about Lisa’s appearance on “Cocktails with Queens,” which she co-hosts with Claudia Jordan, Vivica A. Fox, and Syleena Johnson.
Lisa explained the look on her Instagram feed, saying it was in honor of Women’s History Month, which ended yesterday. “I’m going to scream out to my Queens on this last day of Women’s History Month.”
As we pay tribute to Rosa Parks and Jane Kennedy, we have Claudia Jordan, Vivica Fox, and Syleena Johnson. She wrote, “Pam Grier and Beyonce.” On Mondays on @foxsoul or YouTube, watch Cocktails with the Queens. We pulled off another theme this week, ladies.
“Salute to all these outstanding women in this photo!” one reader wrote. Their efforts will never be forgotten. Some people, though, thought Claudia didn’t properly honor Jane Kennedy.
“Y’all looked terrific,” one person said, “but Claudia never gets the task.” Please, please, please y’all coming for my efforts, come to my page and view the image I was working off of.” It was on the show, I thought.
