Poor Wilona…..Good Times was one of my favorite shows. I loved the episodes where Alderman Davis would say her name wrong...Wilomiashare
Any time you meet a payment.
Any time you need a friend.
Any time you're out from under.
Not getting hassled, not getting hustled.
Keepin' your head above water,
Making a wave when you can.
Temporary lay offs.
Easy credit rip offs.
Scratchin' and survivin'.
Hangin' in and jivin'*
Ain't we lucky we got 'em
This happened 18 hours ago??? It only showed up in my news feed just now. Weird!share
Grew up watching Good Times after school as a kid, sorry to hear about this.share
So sorry to hear that. A beautiful and talented lady for sure.
One of my favorite roles was when she played Juanita, Fred Sanford's old girlfriend. She came to town to "reel him in" and told Fred that he was the father of her daughter Alice. Hilarious complications ensued when Lamont took a liking to her and asked her out.
"Oh no! The dummy is dating his sister."
Miss du Bois could only have been in her mid thirties, but she did a great job of playing someone so much older (with a lot of help from make-up).
She was great on Good Times but her performance in J.T. as his mom was the best and to me the most memorable.
