Salt-N-Pepa are shaking things up for the holidays and their careers by landing a sweet acting gig opposite Taraji P. Henson.
The ladies are playing Sugar N Spice in a skit for Taraji’s “White Hot Holidays” TV special. The script has them sharing the camera with Taraji, as Mrs. Claus — and Method Man as the tooth fairy!
We’re told S-N-P took the gig — which taped last weekend — to sharpen their acting skills, ’cause they plan to do a lot more of it. In fact, they’ll bump into Taraji again when they guest star next season on “Empire.”
Ultimately, the duo’s plan is to be recognized as much as Cheryl James and Sandra Denton, as Salt-N-Pepa. Think Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson … just prettier, with less muscle.
