Ja'net Du Bois: Classic cast

Posted on

Distinguishing Feature: Snappy comebacks that could give Carla Tortelli a run for her money.
Remember What Robert Frost Said About Good Fences: ”Esther Rolle, John Amos, and Jimmie Walker all had frictions, but I didn’t fight with anybody. Me and the kids were sort of off by ourselves.”
Easy Come, Easy Go: ”I was a woman from the ghetto. And I made more money than ever in my life. I do still have the Rolls. I just don’t have enough money to repair it!”
Life After Cancellation: Du Bois, 54, lives in Pasadena and has done guest spots on The Golden Palace and Beverly Hills, 90210. She’s writing her life story and paints (”I’ve had a few art shows”).
Other Classic Neighbors: Sandra Gould as Bewitched‘s Gladys Kravitz, Paul Benedict as The Jeffersons‘ Harry Bentley, Harriet MacGibbon as The Beverly Hillbillies‘ Mrs. Drysdale.
