LisaRaye as Diamond in "The Players Club"

Ice Cube, Jamie Foxx, and Bernie Mac -- all household names when "The Players Club" came out in 1998. The unknown was LisaRaye, but when you think of that film, do you remember anyone else but LisaRaye as Diana Armstrong, a single mom and college student, moonlighting as the stripper Diamond, in a rowdy nightclub in order to pay for her tuition? She's the only thing that sticks to our minds.
