Some of you may remember “Aunt Shirleen” from her pleas to stop women from wearing waist shapers after her neice “fell out at the Red Lobster on Candler Road.” Hysterical. See the video here.
Aunt Shirleen’s cries to “stop training your waist-ess” sent the internet into hysterics and branded her skits (in my opinion) alongside Tyler Perry’s “Madea” and Rickey Smiley’s “Sister Bernice Jenkins” as one of the funniest southern women impersonations of today’s time. I can’t get enough! If you’re from the south, you know a Aunt Shirleen or you HAVE a Aunt Shirleen.
Well Aunt Shirleen is back! This time she is calling an emergency church meeting to pray for her friend Bernice’s neice “Proserity” who “took a whole church van” down to the jail to date some prisoners.
I laugh, but I was actually approached a couple years back by a casting agency to participate in a show about prison wives. After a few casting meetings, I respectfully declined, mainly because I wondered what the outside world would think. According to Aunt Shirleen I would’ve been “desprut” for love. Soon after, me and my “prisoner” went on to split. Thank God I dodged a bullet with that one! Literally.
