From the mind of Wayne Brady and The ladies of Elite Delta Force 3 comes a spoof of one of the most popular reality series on air…. the HOUSEWIVES!
Written by Angela Yarbrough and directed by Ken Whittingham the spoof takes us back to the civil rights era where we encounter a few of our iconic figures placed in hilarious “housewife” reality show situations.
“When I walk into a room… White people want to shoot me!” ~ Betty Shabazz
“I’m the wife of a ‘King’ so I always do it BIG!” ~ Coretta Scott King
“I don’t like taking a back seat to anyone!” ~ Rosa Parks
You get the drift! And they even have a token White “housewife”…. Marilyn Monroe! *sigh*
Some have called it disrespectful, while others feel it’s hilarious. Did they take it too far? You be the judge.
