These Seven Best Friends Saw "Girls Trip" On Their Girls Trip And It's So Perfect

"We are shook."

"I’ve met all the ladies before," daughter Tori told BuzzFeed News. "They came over a few years ago and they were just a ball of fun."

This year, the best friends planned to see Girls Trip in New Orleans, after they discovered that their trip coincided with the movie's release.

It was a pretty perfect coincidence considering that Girls Trip is about a group of college friends — played by actors Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish, and Queen Latifah— who travel to that very city.


“The funny thing about it — [the trip] wasn’t planned for the movie. It just happened to fall in place like that," Charlie said.

Tori tweeted about her mom's night out and the pics went super viral. "Super obsessed with my mom & her friends sorrrrryyyyyy," she wrote.

Super obsessed with my mom & her friends sorrrrryyyyyy


Charlie found the internet attention incredibly funny. "Here we are — women in our fifties — and we're laughing because we don’t have a clue we are going viral," she said. She texted her daughter about her viral fame, "Please save or send me the Twitter thing! We are shook."

My mom's reaction to everything 😂😂😂

On Twitter, one person even mistook the friend group for the cast.

"The kind of friendships I need," wrote another.

One person even reported bumping into the best friends at the airport. "They are amazing and so nice!!!!" she tweeted.

And they are definitely wearing the wigs again — but next time with matching bathing suits. "Now that’s our trademark," Charlie said. "Now every time we take a trip we will have to wear those wigs. This is going to be the new thing now."
