The Troop Beverly Hills cast came together for their thirty year reunion
Thirty years ago, we all fell in love with Phyllis Nefler and her whole troop of Wilderness Girls. Now, the entire gang has reunited for an Entertainment Tonight special and the pictures will make your 80s loving heart very, very happy. Important side note – all of them wore their signature green neck ties to the interview.
A quick recap: Troop Beverly Hills told the story of a California socialite named Phyllis Nefler (Shelley Long), who decides to lead a group of Wilderness Girls (kinda like the Girl Scouts) after a messy divorce. Long, Betty Thomas, Tori Spelling, and some of the other Wilderness Girls all came together at the Beverly Hills Hotel (because, duh) and looked back on their time shooting the film.
“May I say? I am so proud of these girls and this girl too,” Long said, while hugging Thomas in a preview clip from the reunion. “And that’s really why I did this, because of the girls. They are so wonderful.” If that’s not enough to make you want to dust off an old VHS copy of Troop Beverly Hills and feel all the feel good feelings, the cast proceeded to sing THIS song together:
“We’re the girls from Beverly Hills, shopping is our greatest skill! We will fight and try real hard, leave behind our credit card! Beverly Hills, what a thrill! Beverly Hills, what a thrill!”
UGH we need to see this movie again immediately.
Anyone else ready to head into the woods to take first place at the coveted Wilderness Girls Jamboree?
Tasha Scott (Jasmine) took to Instagram to share a few snapshots from the epic reunion. “Beverly Hills what a thrill!!!” she wrote. “Get ready to do the Freddie and sing Cookie Time. The cast of Troop Beverly Hills reunite for the 30th anniversary!!! Catch it on @entertainmenttonight on Tuesday.”
If this is all making you very nostalgic and you have some serious cash to burn, head to the Beverly Hills Hotel where they’re currently offering a Troop Beverly Hills-inspired package. It includes pink sleep masks, massages, and all of the s’mores. Or, have your own DIY Wilderness Girls slumber party at home. Because it’s cookie time, damnit, and you deserve it.
