MN Exclusive: Black Sitcom Trivia with Tichina Arnold

January 4, 2012  |  

Many of us know Tichina Arnold from her role as Gina Waters’ best friend, “Pam” on the hit show Martin. And then she reemerged as Rochelle, the take no mess mother of Chris in Everybody Hates Chris. Just because Tichina has starred in some of the best black shows doesn’t mean she doesn’t know her history. We tested Tichina’s knowledge of black sitcoms, with some pretty tricky trivia questions. Check out the video to see if the actress, singer and mother soared or flopped.

  • I love Tishina Arnold!!!!
    I still watch “Martin” and “Everybody Hates Chris”, i even remember her role in “Little shop of Horrors”I’m a black actor/writer/director from London UK and over here we have a predominantly white race with little to no black TV. I took a stand and decided to create my own black sitcom from scratch and have it aired on Youtube. Its called “ALL ABOUT THE MCKENZIES” and its available to watch from May 2012 on my channel. 

    I thought it would be interesting for an AMerican audience to watch a black “british” family sitcom, yo see life from our angle and get a feel of where we are at.

    Please subscribe and spread the word so we can bring black entertainment back. My aim is for this show to be a huge international TV hit!

    Love seeing that Tichina’s real life persona is just as vibrant and outgoing as her famous sitcom personalities.
    I wish her continued success in her acting career and would love to hear more from her singing career.

    Great post MN!!

    I’ve always thought she was funny!  ‘Martin’ and ‘Everybody Loves Chris’ had good ensemble casts anyway.  Very talented bunch of folks.

    I wish she had another sitcom to come out with.  I would love to see her in another role.  Maybe a good drama, but another comedy would be good too.

    • FromUR2UB

      She has a supporting role on ‘Happily Divorced’.  She plays Fran Drescher’s character’s best friend.

    I love her, period!!! I think it would be so awesome if they did a movie about Patti LaBelle and cast her as lead! (just thought I’d throw that into the universe to see if it might happen)

      You know you have a good point…….She imitated her once on Martin,

  • Love_Sexy

    Love Tichina in both characters………..But I think I loved her best as Pam.
