The Resume

    (December 22, 1953- )
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    Birth name was Bernadette Stanislaus
    Portrayed Thelma Evans on Good Times

Why she might be annoying:

    Sometimes instead of bunging a capital N into the middle of her first name, she splits it into two parts, as Bern Nadette.
    She reportedly demanded that the producers of ‘Good Times’ provide Thelma with a fashionable wardrobe that was far more expensive than a family like the Evanses could have afforded.
    She has been married four time, divorced three times.
    She wrote three books of relationship advice. (One for each divorce, perhaps?)

Why she might not be annoying:

    She graduated from Juilliard with a degree in drama.
    She considered TV mom Esther Rolle her acting role model.
    She was arguably the first black female sex symbol on American TV.
    She said that thanks to good money management, she has avoided financial trouble since 'Good Times' went off the air.
    She started the foundation Remember the Good Times for Alzheimer’s research after her mother was diagnosed with the disease.
