    Talk about the fountain of youth. This woman is 52 years old. Can you believe that? I saw her in Jumping the broom and I was like she still looks great. Talented actress and best wishes to her.

    Glad to see Valerie Pettiford will be back on tv again as a semi-regular in TWO shows! She was a breath of fresh air in "Half & Half". Welcome back Valerie!
