Access Exclusive: Whitney Houston Wants To Star In ‘Waiting to Exhale 2’

Whitney Houston will soon make her return to the big screen after 15 years in “Sparkle,” and only Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson was on the movie’s set in Detroit to talk with the global superstar about her movie comeback and the possibility of her return to another beloved Whitney role.

“You know what, that Terry McMillan, she keeps calling me about that ‘Waiting to Exhale 2,’” Whitney, who starred in the 1995 movie, told Shaun, referring to the author whose 1992 book inspired the film.

“I guess it’s inevitable. If my three other friends, my three ladies… I think they’re all in,” she said of co-stars Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine and Lela Rochon.

“I just have to… I’m just settling down, just getting this under my belt and once I finish with this,” Whitney said of “Sparkle,” which also stars “American Idol” Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks. “I’m not going to say no.”

In “Waiting To Exhale,” Whitney played Savannah Jackson, a woman waiting for her lover to leave his wife – a character that has more to say according to the star.

“Savannah has to be, she has to come back,” Whitney added.
