Stephanie Mills is a singer and songwriter best known for her hit song "Home." The renowned songstress recently proved she had amazing dance moves to match her vocals in a throwback video she shared on Instagram.

The short clip captured the singer dancing with her good friend and actress BernNadette Stanis. Although there were other women in the footage, the pals were the center of attention.

Mills commanded all eyes on her in an all-green ensemble while her friend looked stunning in an all-black outfit that showcased her magnificent figure. The pals were also glowing with joy as they danced.

[Stanis'] love life hasn't been as successful as her career.


This fun post received multiple comments from fans, who adored the pair and praised their close relationship. The 63-year-old captioned the post with the affectionate words:

"Throwback with my girl #BernNadetteStanis aka #Thelma."


The "I Feel Good All Over" crooner's caption is a reference to Stanis's iconic character from the 1970s sitcom "Good Times," in which she played the beautiful and smart Thelma Evans.

The beloved show ran for a total of six seasons from 1974 to 1979 and it was focused on the good and bad moments of the Evans family, an African-American family living in Chicago.


The 67-year-old actress's career has not only given her fame but also the opportunity to meet iconic celebrities such as the renowned actor Eddie Murphy and the late singer Rick James.

Stanis was lucky enough to meet the late songstress Whitney Houston, TV personality Whoopi Goldberg, activist Ruby Dee, boxing star Mike Tyson, as well as NBA legend Michael Jordan.


The actress was born on December 22, 1953 in Brooklyn as Bernadette Stanislaus and she reportedly graduated from Juilliard with a BA Degree in Drama. However, her love life hasn't been as successful as her career.

The "Good Times" star has been married four times and she has also been blessed with two daughters —Dior Ravel and Brittany Rose. To date, the proud mother-of-two remains loved by millions as Thelma Evans.


While her good friend Mills, who was also born in Brooklyn made her debut in the entertainment world at 7-years-old in the Broadway musical, "Maggie Flynn," but her big break occurred when she was fifteen.

The singer won the hearts of many with her portrayal of Dorothy in the famous Broadway musical "The Wiz." Similar to her friend, Mills has been married three times and has one son, Farad Mills.
