Cardi B is continuing to move up in the ranks of the entertainment industry, from her days as a reality star on Love And Hip Hop, to an MC, and now, a small-screen star. In a new sketch called, The Real Housewives Of The Civil Rights Movement, the 25-year-old rapper will portray Coretta Scott King, the wife of Martin Luther King Junior.
Reportedly, the short skit comes from Off The Rip, a comedy show from Rip Michaels, and it makes fun of Bravo’s Real Housewives series. Fans of Cardi get to see her speak with leaders like Betty Shabazz, Jacqueline Brown, as well as Rosa Parks.
Additionally, presumably for comic relief, there’s a white woman named Margaret in the skit, who’s given the moniker: “Iggy Azalea Of The Civil Rights Movement.”
In the video, women sit down around a table to talk about their strategy, sort of like the Real Housewives franchise, and their conversation turns hostile quickly.
Cardi says in the clip, “I think I should be the leader of this group,” because her husband fought so they “can use the same toilet as everyone.” Shabazz says to her in response, “Well, your husband is a h*.”
Later on, in a monologue before the camera, Cardi says that “all these hussies” want to sleep with her husband. However, it’s of no concern to her because at the end of the day, “he comes marching home to me.”
Previously, Michaels, 36, spoke with Page Six and revealed Cardi’s participation in his show. He said, “she’s doing crazy sketches like she has this thing called, ‘H* etiquette,’ where she'” explains to other women how to act properly as a “h*.”
According to the show’s creator, Cardi has a natural talent for sketch comedy, and to see her in that light is “way, way funnier.”
