LisaRaye McCoy just celebrated her 53rd birthday. The Player’s Club alum celebrated wearing her signature heavenly white attire while chatting with her good girlfriends during the popular Cocktails With Queens segment on Claudia Jordan’s Fox oul talk show, Out Loud.

Jordan, Syleena Johnson, and Vivica A. Fox were excited to surprise LisaRaye with a virtual pop-up visit from her sister, Da Brat. LisaRaye quickly became emotional. Da Brat spoke lovingly of her big sis and while LisaRaye’s co-hosts beamed with joy at the sisters’ seemingly bonding. LisaRaye’s dried-up tears quickly transformed into a frown. All of this went down the drain to give her baby sister a piece of her mind. Viewers quickly learned that LisaRaye’s initial tears weren’t of joy.
As her co-host tried to reel the uncomfortable reunion back to a happy place, LisaRaye only grew more frustrated. She accuses Da Brat of not opening up to her about her love life as Da Brat recently debuted her girlfriend to the world. LisaRaye says she learned of her sister’s new relationship via the gram, which she says is unacceptable.
Da Brat shot back, explaining that LisaRaye is not the easiest person to speak to. She also hinted that her love journey has been a process that she herself had to become comfortable with before telling her family. LisaRaye wasn’t having it and there was no resolution to the once-close sisters’ conflict...at least not on air.
The tense moment trended Twitter but not for the reason one would think. While the assumption is that fans would be devastated over the sisters’ current estrangement, hundreds of social media users apparently didn’t know the actress and rapper are sisters to begin with.
In case anyone didn’t know, Da Brat and LisaRaye share the same father. LisaRaye is seven years older than Da Brat.
Still, many are shocked by the relation.

Hopefully, these two can get their sistership back on track. In the meantime, Twitter can continue researching which celebrities are related to one another.
