The topic came up when Sean brought up a stunning photo of Tracee that she shared on Instagram back in July, and she shared that likes to re-create photos of Diana from decades ago.

“I had this necklace, of hers and I think it was a necklace attached to a jumpsuit she wore in Mahogany, and I have always said, every time I see the picture, I’m like ‘Oh my god I have that necklace!’ I steal stuff from her,” Tracee shared.

In the photo, Tracee is striking a fierce pose while wearing the beaded necklace her mom first wore back in 1975.

“I kind of love doing it,” Tracee said of the tribute. “I was re-organizing and re-cataloging and I was like, ‘I really need to just do it now.’”

“The hard part of that picture is those elbows,” she added, “like I think she was maybe a little double-jointed there. But that was really hard to get my arms up.”

If you missed it, Tracee opened up about the moment when her mom first heard her sing. See what she said hereā€¦
