Well now these lovely ladies have just dusted off their costumes and recreated their characters, “Lisa McDowell” and “Princess Imani”…

Shari and Vanessa appeared on Steve Harvey’s show to reminisce about “Coming To America” for Steve’s Halloween tribute. Of course Mr. Harvey had to get in on the action, so to make the vibe complete, he dressed as “King Jaffe Joffer” (James Earl Jones’ character).

Do you see how beautiful Shari (52) and Vanessa (59) look though? It’s like they stepped into a “Back To The Future” time machine or something!

Great…now we won’t be able to get Vanessa’s cute barking sounds out of our heads for the rest of the day. Remember when Eddie Murphy told her to hop on one leg and bark like a dog in the movie? That scene had everybody crackin’ up!
