Decades Later “Ms. Parker” Reunites With “Felicia” And Both Of ‘Em Still Got It
Who could ever forget the many classic lines and characters from the “Friday” movie franchise? There were countless memorable characters and two of them that will forever be a stand-out, are ‘crackhead Felicia’ and the ‘sexy neighbor, Ms. Parker.’ Actresses Kathleen Bradley and Angela Means played the hell outta their supporting roles in that movie, didn’t they?
“Ms. Parker” made “Smokey” (Chris Tucker) and “Craig” (Ice Cube) say “Heeeeey Ms. Parker. How you doin’ Ms. Parker? I wanna (bleep) Ms. Parker.” And she made Bernie Mac’s preacher character almost lose his religion, when she walked out of her house to water the lawn in those barely there Daisy Duke shorts and midriff shirt.
Then there was the hilarious “Felicia,” who was always asking folks to loan her stuff and even tried to convince “Smokey” to let her “borrow” his car, LOL. That’s when she forever became the face of the classic one-liner we all know today as, “Bye Felicia.”
This year (2018) marks the 23rd anniversary of “Friday’s” release -yes, it’s been THAT long- and “Felicia” and “Ms. Parker” have reunited, damn near looking the same as they did in 1995! The only difference is that in real life, Kathleen and Angela are far from their comical “Friday roles” and we’re loving it.
“Ms. Parker” & “Felicia” Today
A few months ago, Angela Means shared a photo of herself and Kathleen that gave us “Friday” 90’s nostalgia all over again. As we previously reported, Angela is now the proud owner of her Los Angeles, Ca. vegan cafe. She revealed that the photo was from the time Kathleen passed through her cafe and that her customers also had “Friday” flashbacks when they all yelled out, “Hey Ms. Parker”…
Angela Means: Kathleen called with love and encouragement the other day. I let everyone in the Cafe say hello by holding up the phone. It was sooooo funny when about 25 people simultaneously said “Heyyyy Mrs Parker”. @kathleenbradley_mrsparker is everything #love #icon #entertainmenthistory
Now here’s the kicker, can y’all believe Kathleen “Ms. Parker” Bradley is 67 years young?!! Wow! Not sure of Angela “Felisha” Means’ age, but what we do know is that she’s 23 years older than she was in “Friday,” but her appearance does not reflect that fact. Lookin’ good ladies…
What Kathleen Bradley Does Now & How She Feels About A “Friday” Sequel
So what has Kathleen been up to lately you ask? Quite a few things. She has a tell-all book out now and a few years ago, she was not shy about voicing her dislike regarding being left out of the talks of a “Friday” sequel. After rumors surfaced, in 2013, that there may be another “Friday” movie in the works, Kathleen made it no secret that she was not pleased to not have been asked to be a part of it.
Well, at that time, the sequel had never transpired, but in 2018, the rumors have been spared again. Why? Because as we recently reported, “Friday” co-stars, Ice Cube, John Witherspoon (“Craig’s” dad), and Mike Epps a.k.a. “Day-Day” are cookin’ up something, because a new photo and video have recently surfaced of what appears to be them filming on the set of a new “Friday.” Only time will tell if it’s the real deal though…and we’d love to see “Ms. Parker” and “Felicia” make their comeback in it too. But again, only time will tell.
