The future of a kid star or teen actor is an unsure one. We learned this fact from the entire cast of Different Strokes… and, actually the stars of MOST eighties sitcoms, including Jaimee Foxworth, who played the youngest daughter, Judy, on Family Matters for the first few seasons before her character was suddenly dissolved and wound up doing adult films. So, for a star to not only survive the kid star to adult role transition–continuing to have a thriving career, but to also transition into a stunningly attractive adult, that is an amazing feat. Actresses and actors such as Hilary Duff, Dakota Fanning and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are looking better than ever, so let’s check out who’s looking better with time in our community.

Hey loves! Hopefully, you all have been enjoying the weekend and staying out of trouble (at least the “bad” kind of trouble). The celebs tried to have quiet weekends but I found some very interesting things. Let’s see what we came up with!
The theme song says it best: “There’s no place like home.” That’s very true, and there wasn’t anything like 227 back in the day (aside from the very hard to top Cosby Show). On top of having a fun theme song, teaching us life lessons and showing off the hottest looks, trends, and things of the late ’80s (including Jackee), 227 was MAD entertaining because it was both positive and real. The show ended in 1990 and helped pave the way for many other classics and successful acting careers, but I had to show some love today to the D.C. based comedy and find out where folks are now. Let’s get to it!
Mary Jenkins was the queen of the gossips, and also happened to be the much loved and respected housewife in the apartment building inhabited by all kinds of cool and kooky folks. If there was one thing you needed to know about Mary, it was that she didn’t take no mess. And with Marla previously playing the sharp-tongued maid, Florence, on The Jeffersons, moving on to Mary seemed to be a piece of cake. After her years on the show, Gibbs did a lot of TV work, including guest appearances on Martin, a role on The Hughleys, and voice work for the TV series, “101 Dalmatians: The Series.” She’s currently filming Madea’s Witness Protection with Tyler Perry…
Sometimes when we watch our favorite celebrities, we have to remind ourselves that we don’t know them. We didn’t grow up with them, we can’t call them when something goes down, and we won’t be shopping for the perfect club fit together. We know all this; yet, when we see these women on the big screen, the small screen or our computer screen we can’t help but think she reminds me of one of my girls! Such is the case with Regina King. From her days on ’227′ to her current role as Lydia in ‘Southland,’ Regina brings the realness. Madame Noire caught up with the talented actress to discuss her roles, her loves, and her arms.
