BernNadette Stanis of "Good Times" shares a couple of throwback pictures wearing a yellow coat and pants set for her fans to see on Instagram.


BernNadette Stanis is best known for her portrayal of Thelma on "Good Times," and through the years, she's made sure to update her fans about her life through social media. This time, she decided to give them a little blast from the past.

Fans had nothing but praises to say about BernNadette's throwback update, where she is seen posing for some pictures in a long brown and yellow fur coat. She paired the look with matching yellow pants and a black turtleneck top.



In the 1970s, BernNadette Stanis played Thelma, the middle child of the Evans household. Despite the hit show ending in 1979, she continued to act on different projects and even authored a book on relationship and financial advice alongside a memoir of her mom's battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Now in her mid-60s, Stanis continues to stay active in the industry. When she is not on social media, she is attending various events that still continue to celebrate "Good Times," as well as her merchandise and books.

Through the years, it hasn't always been easy for the star, as she not only had to deal with her father's murder but also her mother's diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Before her mom passed, she made it a point to promise that she would use her influence to educate people on the disease.


She made this promise after she and her mom were watching an episode of "Good Times," where BernNadette's character Thelma was on a scene. It was then that her mom turned to her and told her that the person playing Thelma looks cute.



It was then that she realized her mom's Alzheimer's diagnosis has gotten worse, as she could not even remember her own daughter acting on the show. In fact, it was her mom that brought her to act on "Good Times," which was why it stunned her that she didn't recognize her at that point.

Since then, she's joined various fundraising events in support of research against Alzheimer's, hoping to one day support someone who can find a cure and slow it down. For now, she has been using her platform to educate people on what the disease is, and what it does to a person.
