Johnson surprised fans when she shared a video of herself and Campbell on the set of Act Your Age. The Martin show alumna and fellow actresses Kym Whitley and Yvette Nicole Brown star in the comedy series, which is set to premiere on Bounce TV in Spring 2023. The sitcom will have 16 episodes and is described by Variety as “Golden Girls”-esque for a younger generation.
“This is our first collaboration in 30 years!” Campbell squeaked in one of the clips. Elsewhere in the short video, the women can be seen chatting outside of the set trailer starring the “Baby Boy” and hugging between takes. The ladies’ reunion cheered on their fans, who loved them as Sharane, played by Johnson, and Sydney, played by Campbell, in the 1991 dance party flick.
“You still look good! You all work better!! Sharane & sidneyyyyy,” wrote one fan.
“Do you all realize that they are say 30 years old??? And they still look so good????? AMAZING,” wrote another.
A third commented, “I pray the dance from the house party is recreated in the new movie.” And a fourth wrote, “I know that’s right, two legends.”
The official trailer for the House Party remake was released in October. The film is being produced by NBA superstar LeBron James and his business partner Maverick Carter’s production company SpringHill Company. The film is expected to hit theaters on January 23rd.
Johnson appeared on the Jemele Hill is Unbothered podcast in 2021, where she revealed that she choreographed the film’s iconic dance fight. Though 30 years have passed, she swears she’s still more than capable of hitting every move.
“Yes, I can still dance ‘House Party’, actually better than ever because I didn’t know what I was doing at the time,” said Johnson, whose real name is Adrienne-Joi. “Now I know it’s worth a million bucks if you can go down and have Meg Thee Stallion knees. So I’m like how about Megan getting AJ knees because I was down there first!” she added.
A few years ago, the women spoiled fans by live-streaming one of their many chat sessions. In it, Campbell expressed her gratitude for the way Johnson has shown up for her throughout their decades-long friendship.
The Uncouple star said she went through personal trauma years ago that put her and Johnson through a rough patch, but when Campbell needed a boyfriend, Johnson was there. “When she heard what I was going through, she said, ‘… ‘I’ll be here, but you need me here as a friend,'” Campbell recalled.
She continued, “Even the moment I was like, ‘Get out your ass,’ she called me the next day. It was, ‘I’ll handle your anger and you’re upset and I see you.’ She is one of the few people that has seen me and my friend was what I needed as a friend, not what others might want my friend to be. She was there when I needed her. That speaks volumes about who she is as a person, as a beautiful African American woman
