That would have made the most sense. My favorite Willona moment (serious) was when she gave her ex-husband a nice right hook after she caught him trying to assault Thelma. My favorite Willona moment (funny) was the sequence in "The Dinner Party". James and Michael were trying to hold on to Willona to keep her from leaving the meal of what everyone thought was dog food, and in the struggle her wig nearly fell off!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

TVOne has been airing a Best of Willona marathon today in tribute to Ja'Net DuBois- so many great episodes with Willona. Β The Dinner Party sequence is hilarious, as well as The Rent Party episode where Willona, Thelma, and Florida sing Stop In the Name of Love as The Supremes at the rent party for Wanda. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I could see that being true. There were entertainers in that era that had children they knew nothing about. She certainly brought a lot of energy to the screen and Cab Calloway was energetic so maybe that's where she got it from.

I'd heard the stories a few weeks ago about her supposedly being 87 but the Cab Calloway detail was a bombshell. His family is saying they haven't heard of this and have pointed out various conflicting documents about her life. I don't really see her family bothering to pursue it, but...fascinating, either way.Β
