If you were a Bernie Mac Show fan like we were, then you probably remember Vanessa, or “Nessa,” as Mac called her. She was the eldest of Mac’s sister’s kids, whom he was taking care of after she entered rehab (per the show’s plot). The one who gave him the most attitude, Vanessa was played greatly by actress Camille Winbush. When the show started in 2001, she was 11. By the time it went off the air in 2006, she was 16. As of today, her birthday, she’s now 28 years old.
Winbush has come a long way from her sitcom days (as has her co-star Dee Dee Davis, who played “Baby Girl” and now has a baby of her own). Some of her latest roles include being on shows like The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Issa Rae’s webseries The Choir and the 2018 film, Everything But a Man. She also does voice-over work. Winbush is all grown up and looks stunning:
