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.
