Who was supposed to be Deirdre?
You may remember that Deirdre was Mo’Nique’s character. Though she was great in the role, she wasn’t the casting director’s original choice. She revealed in an interview with Black Film that Tyra Banks was supposed to play the character. Remember Deirdre was the fashionista friend. It didn’t work out for Tyra but we were happy to see Mo’Nique in the role.
