After seeing all of the positive feedback on a possible sequel to the classic, the film’s writer, Troy Byer gave thanks to her fans with a powerful message.
“I am so touched by all the love around [Robert Townsend] and his question about making a sequel to B.A.P.S. I wrote B.A.P.S based on my painful and once shameful personal experience when I went from living in the hood to living in a women’s homeless shelter and then finally moving to Bel-Air. I used to be so embarrassed by my lack of education and knowledge of proper etiquette, but I never let that stop me from pursuing my passion and living purposefully,” Byer wrote.
She continues, “bottom line: following your pain can lead to your purpose, pursuing your purpose can lead to your power, embracing your power can empower others – surrendering to your healing process can heal our world. A big thank you to [Halleberry and Natalie Desselle Reid] for breathing such greatness into my words and [Robert Townsend] for taking it all to a whole other level.”
For those who don’t know, B.A.P.S is described as classic surround two waitresses at a southside restaurant in Georgia.
According to Google movie review “Nisi (Halle Berry) and Mickey (Natalie Desselle), decide to fly to Los Angeles for a music-video audition to raise money for their dream project — a business that combines soul-food dining with a hair salon. Circumstances eventually find the Southern ladies on the estate of Mr. Blakemore (Martin Landau), an elderly millionaire. Despite their vast cultural differences, Nisi and Mickey form close bonds with Blakemore and his butler (Ian Richardson).”
