Luke disagreed with the rating and said:
Josie is named, but never talks with another female. Precious is named, but I can't remember if either of the other sorority girls is named outside of the credits. The film either passes one or two of the tests, depending on JaQuandae's name being mentioned or not.

That's true, Luke. There is the moment with the sorority women, however their conversation is entirely focused on the subject of one man, Precious' friend's boyfriend whom Precious has been caught sexting. It therefore fails the bechdel test because it doesn't discuss anything other than a man, despite the fact that it's not discussing either protagonist.
