In our highly anticipated reboot of “Steel Magnolias,” we knew one Rashad wouldn't be enough so we’re giving you two! Phylicia Rashad stars alongside her daughter, Condola Rashad in the upcoming Lifetime original movie, making this their first on-screen appearance together.

Phylicia is best known as one of America’s favorite TV moms playing "Clair Huxtable" on “The Cosby Show” and her daughter, Condola, has already conquered the stage earning a Tony nod for her breakthrough performance in the Broadway play, "Stick Fly." In Lifetime's television remake of “Steel Magnolias,” Condola plays “Shelby” while Phylicia takes on the role of “Clairee.” Are you excited to see this mother-daughter duo on screen?
