Tiffany Haddish has figured out how Meryl Streep could believably play her mother in the sequel to “Girls Trip.” The comic has been vocal about the dream casting ever since she hurdled a velvet rope on the Oscars red carpet just to meet the screen legend.“I told Meryl that I wanted her to play momma one day,” she said during her visit to “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday.

“I want her to be my mother in Girls Trip 2. I think it will be so cool if we find out that (my character) Dina has a white mom!” Haddish said she had to explain how the genetic possibility of the mother-daughter combo to her co-stars Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

“I was like, ‘She could have married my dad, see… Maybe my real momma passed and then she married my dad… but she’s turnt up like Dina, and then you find out why Dina is the way she is – because she gets it from her stepmomma, who happens to be Meryl Streep’,” she said. Tiffany believes Streep would add another Academy Award to her collection if she can convincingly play her hood mama.

“If you see Meryl Streep turnt up like me, you’ll be like, ‘She can do anything…!’ She’ll get an Oscar for that… I need to see her hood side,” Haddish said.

    Wow Tiffany. There’s a show on television called Orange is the New Black I guess they call it that because most of the people on the show are black and wearing orange uniforms as prisoners. Black Entertainment Television has a show headed by white person wwho takes the role that the Black man could not do for the family. Also we look at a show wwhere most of the stars are people of color or Black American descent, however the star of the show is a white girl a white girl who wants to put Ray herself as black she’s not even proud to be white but she has a star role on it predominantly black show of stars. Black Entertainment is really lost. We’re being portrayed on television interracial if you want to call it that the head of our family is white, the special woman or wife is white, or your special man is gay. As hard as black stars fought in the day to get rolls this is what we have come to today. I am sure Meryl Streep will get the role as Tiffany’s mother just as she got the Oscar for Out of Africa over the color purple. It’s a sad day when our own will not hire us for rolls that are already Limited in the entertainment industry. Yes Orange is the New Black so some have said but now it appears that white is the New Black so if that’s the case we’ve lost the old black.
