Tiffany and Debbie Gibson Star In Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid

Former teen stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson team up to star in the movie Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid, which airs on the Syfy network.
The film features mutant creatures, a catfight between the two, and references to some of their hits. Here's the dialogue that leads to the catfight:

Gibson: "You are going to get it, you gator-baiting bitch."

Tiffany: "Only in your dreams!"

After they throw down, there is this:

Gibson: "I think we're alone now."

Tiffany: "There doesn't seem to be anyone around."

It's not the first time these two have starred in Syfy movies: Gibson was in Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Tiffany was in Mega Piranha. It is the first time they have appeared together, though.

Directing the film is another woman who made a mark on the '80s music scene: Mary Lambert. She did videos for MadonnaJanet Jackson and Sting.
