Pam Grier is learning new tricks courtesy of the "Bodak Yellow" star.

Pam Grier is a pop culture icon. The actress all but defined blaxploitation films in the 1970s courtesy of classic roles like Coffy (1973) and Foxy Brown (1974). Her influence on female rappers is second to none, so it seems fitting that she would eventually team up with one of them. During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen, Grier revealed that she's been learning to pole dance. The best part? Grier's teacher is none other than superstar and former dancer Cardi B.

Grier told the late night host that she wrote a film script for herself and Cardi B back in 2022. It has not been picked up yet, but the actress hopes it will be once she's done making the biopic series about her life. "As soon as I finish that, I really wanted to work with her," she noted. "And it could be in maybe two years at the theater ‘cause I’m now learning how to pole dance." The actress, 74, admitted that it's been a tricky skill to master. Fortunately, she has Cardi as a mentor. I’m the pole dancer," Grier revealed. "And she teaches me."

Cardi B would relish the opportunity to show her dancing skills on the big screen. She had a brief role in the critically acclaimed drama Hustlers (2019), but she told iHeartRadio that she was unable to "shine" as much as she wanted to. "I just got my t**ties done and I got lipo," she told the outlet. "So I was like, 'This is my moment to shine, and I can't shine because I can't climb!' I was mad. Everybody thinks it's so easy to do. No it ain't. You can't do it at home."

Pam Grier is enthusiastic about getting her script made, but she kept the details of the story under wraps. "It’s taking a minute, but it’s a lot of fun," she explained to Andy Cohen. "But it’s a wonderful story." The actress threw an additional compliment Cardi's way by noting that her maternal instincts will play a role in the story. "I don’t want to give it away," she added. "But it’s perfect for her because she’s a great mom." Cardi B is currently working on her sophomore album, while Grier was last seen in the 2023 horror flick Pet Sematary: Bloodlines.
