I love CleoPatra ‘Miss Cleo’ Sims, portrayed by Queen Latifah in the movie Set it Off, because she was the toughest and meanest one in the movie  always keeping it real.  In fact, I have quite a few friends (and ex-girlfriends) who are much like Cleo. Cleo is most fondly remembered for her criminal record for stealing cars and dumping the CDs that she wasn’t feeling until she found one she could roll to, smoking weed, and cussing. She lived in an abandoned garage with her girl Ursula and was the one who suggested they all plan to rob the bank in the movie.  We heart Cleo for keeping it real, unlike the actress who played her, but that’s another story.
