Regina 'Piggy' Grier from 'the Steve Harvey Show' Has an Enviable Figure at 53 – Meet Wendy Raquel Robinson
Time is doing wonders for Wendy Raquel Robinson. Considering her age, she looks incredible and has maintained an excellent figure.
Wendy Robinson, 53, is better known for her role as high school principal Regina “Piggy” Grier on the sitcom “The Steve Harvey Show" and Lauretta Bozer in the series "MacGyver."
She also had a long run as a sports agent, Tasha Mack, on the sitcom “The Game” and recently appeared on Netflix’s “Dear White People.”
The 53-year-old actress does everything in her power to lead a healthy lifestyle. “The Game” star and former dancer revealed that being active is her best stress-buster.
The star also believes that part of leading a stress-free life, especially for women, is putting themselves first. Robinson went through that experience herself. “When I’m having a really rough day, I take it out in the gym,” Robinson told Essence a few years ago. She added:
“It releases so many endorphins in your body.”
BACK IN THE GAME
Earlier this year, Paramount+ announced a reboot of "The Game" and reportedly handed a ten-episode series order to its revival of the CW and BET dramedy with the original cast members, Wendy Robinson and Hosea Chanchez, reprising their roles.
Robinson reprised her role as sports agent Tasha Mack with several other legacy cast members making special appearances.
After having an on-again/off-again relationship for over 13 years, Robinson finally decided to get out of the loop and start living her life.
And when she least expected it, the man she considered “the one” came into her life. “It's not about being selfish,” she said, adding:
“If you don’t, you will lose in the end. Until you can be happy, you can’t facilitate happiness for anybody else.”
A FAILED HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER
Marco Perkins and Wendy Robinson got married in 2003, and she was on cloud nine. Everything seemed to be going fine for the couple, but not for long. In August 2018, Perkins filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences after 15 years of marriage.
Years before Robinson and Perkin's marriage came to a standstill, she gushed about her husband in a 2012 article in Essence, saying marriage is wonderful:
"I can honestly say he's my best friend."

SEEKING SPOUSAL SUPPORT
According to court papers obtained by TMZ, Robinson allegedly abandoned Perkins after he suffered a stroke in 2015, leaving him broke and with no means to take care of himself.
Perkins said that throughout their marriage, he had enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, so he asked for spousal support of at least $10,000 monthly to sustain that lifestyle.
She reportedly spent a couple of years trying to feel better after her divorce but with zero signs of trusting love again.
Robinson, who also guest-starred in "Insecure," continues to be a fierce advocate of working out as a means to staying fit and healthy, both physically and mentally.
