Talk about the fountain of youth. This woman is 52 years old. Can you believe that? I saw her in Jumping the broom and I was like she still looks great. Talented actress and best wishes to her.

Forever Big Dee Dee.


Congrats to her. I still miss "Half and Half". The reruns aren't enough, I want new episodes. :)


Glad to see Valerie Pettiford will be back on tv again as a semi-regular in TWO shows! She was a breath of fresh air in "Half & Half". Welcome back Valerie!


THIS WOMAN IS SO TALENTED! She is a star. She'd be a great lead. Her own show… wonderful actress.
