Lisaraye responds to Draya Michelle’s request to be forged as “Diamond” in a possible “Gamers Membership” remake
Roommate Draya Michele recently sparked an intense online debate when she announced she was ready to take the lead in the event a remake of the classic ’90s movie “The Players Club” ever takes place. Fast forward and LisaRaye, who starred “Diamond” in the film, has finally responded with her opinion on who could recreate the character she made famous.
At the end of last month, Draya Michele posted a picture of the cast of “The Players Club” with film star LisaRaye in the middle. Her reasoning was to let everyone know that she felt obliged to secure the role of “Diamond” if a remake was ever made.
She titled the photo and wrote, “This could be me on a reboot, but you’re playing @icecube.” In order to give fans a closer look at their meaning, she published next to LisaRaye a photo of herself side by side. Both wore the pink negligee that Diamond wore when she first came on stage to dance.
LisaRaye obviously got wind of Draya’s intense desire to bring “Diamond” and “The Players Club” closer to a new generation, and recently commented on an episode of the FOX soul talk show “Cocktails With Queens” that she had been with Draya in the past and cherished her dressing up as the character last Halloween. Ultimately, she said she would prefer an unknown actress to take on the role to take the pressure off someone who is already known.
Meanwhile, Joseline Hernandez joined the conversation and said that she would also like to play “Diamond”, but LisaRaye said that although she loves Joseline, she cannot see her in the role.
