HOLLYWOOD'S BERNNADETTE STANIS 

The 66-year-old socialite is known for her role as "Thema," in the '70s sitcom, "Good Times." Her comedic portrayal of the role made her a favorite, and she maintained her character until the last airing of the show.

Bernnadette's mom also helped her land the "Good Times" gig.

Once in an interview, Stanis was asked why she thought the vintage show still prevailed in recent years. She made it known that the sitcom was a "real show." Many families find it relatable, and to her, it could pass as a reality show.

KEEPING UP WITH THE "GOOD TIMES"

These days the "Black Jesus" actress has channeled her energy into charity work. Outside of acting, Stanis is an advocate for Alzheimer's patients.

Her passion for helping people with the disease stems from how she watched her late mother struggle with memories. This got to its peak when Bernnadette's mom was watching an old episode of "Good Times," and the matriarch didn't recognize her daughter.

In her journey to stardom, the veteran star once recalled that her mom's influence was a vital one in her career. Bernnadette's mom also helped her land the "Good Times" gig.
