Brandy, who starred with the late Whitney Houston in the 1997 ABC TV version of Cinderella, felt like a princess again in Tuesday’s season finale of ABC’s Queens.
Her character, Naomi, married her longtime love Eric Jones while wearing a gorgeous white gown that was reminiscent of her costume in the film. “It was beautiful to then end up walking down the aisle and marrying the man she never stopped loving,” the Grammy winner told Deadline. “And, on top of that, her daughter gave her away. It really was a fairy tale, but most importantly, it was also very real.”
Brandy added, “It did make me feel like Cinderella again! It felt like the Cinderella that got married in the end. That’s how it felt.”
Another special moment in the finale was the return of Brianna, portrayed by Eve, who temporarily left the series to give birth to son Wilde, born February 1.
“Actually, it was a surprise for us. We didn’t even know anything they were planning, they kept it under wraps so our reactions could be real,” Brandy says. “It was unbelievable. I’m a little teary-eyed just thinking about that moment.”
Though Queens has yet to be renewed, Brandy hopes there will be a second season.
“I hope that we get another chance to do what we all love to do. I know I would love to see more performances, more rapping, and more stage stuff if there is a season two,” Brandy comments. “We didn’t really get a chance to do a lot of the stage performances that I wanted to do this year. I hope we get to tell more great stories and have a lot more entertainment in terms of the group. Fingers crossed.”
