The 66-year-old recently shared a lovely picture that showed her with her friend, American singer Patti LaBelle, enjoying a lovely sister-sister moment, and smiling happily.

Both women embraced each other and wore beautiful smiles, with LaBelle wearing a pink dress, while BernNadette looked gorgeous in a lovely black dress. The actress captioned the post thus:


"Sister || Sister "


Many of BernNadette's fans enjoyed seeing both women together, and some of them made their feelings known in the comment section of her post. One fan said that the two women were her favorites.

Another fan said that the icons were beautiful women inside and outside and that everyone grew up loving them, while a third person wrote that the picture was beautiful.

The actress narrated how her mom battled Alzheimer's.


Since the end of "Good Times" in 1979, BernNadette has kept herself busy by appearing in several acting roles on stage, in movies, and on television, as well as writing her books.

She attended the National Black Festival last year, where she set up a booth at the entrance to the vendor's market to sell copies of "Good Times" shirts and her books, sign them, pose with fans, and many more.


BernNadette used the proceeds from the sale of her books and shirts to fund education on Alzheimer's, a cause she undertook following her mother's struggles with the disease.

BernNadette detailed some of those struggles in the book, "The Late Night: A Caregiver's Journey," which she wrote as a tribute to her parents.

In the book, the actress also narrated how her mom battled Alzheimer's and how it made her determined to help people with the disease. While at her booth, "Journalnow" caught up with the actress and asked her a few questions about herself and her career.

In answer to a question about her character, Thelma, in "Good Times," the actress said that Thelma was now the doctor that she always wanted to become, and was a mother to three children, two girls and a boy.
