Fresh Black Girls: Thelma from Good Times!
I can’t say enough about BernNadette Stanis aka Thelma Evans. She was always so dope because aside from just being pretty, she was so sweet but always got with J.J.’s old beanpole jokes. She may be the most desired black woman in the history of television (except for maybe Lisa Turtle) – she had that African bigamist boyfriend, then old Lou Gosset Junior who wanted to marry her, all of these other random boyfriends, then finally Keith, the football star. When he was all unemployed and hiding vodka in the back of the toilet and she packed up his stuff and kicked him out I was like “Yeah Girl!” because who ever heard of a project chick kicking her ex-football player husband OUT of the ghetto? Her jeans and lil’ plaid shirts always fit all fly, and her hair was the most successful press n curl/blowout combo in black history. She still looks good, too.
