WATN: Judy Winslow

We all know the tragic tales of most child stars when we ask Where Are They Now? So and So checked into rehab when he was 13, whats-her-name got into a knife fight at a club and is now serving the last 2 of her 7 years. Though we occasionally hear about these cases, they for the most part end up becoming housewives, or taking everyday jobs or doing off-off Broadway productions and we never hear from them again. Then there are the unique cases of child stars who go and do something totally unexpected, or strange or just surprising, and those are the ones I will feature in my WATN blogs.

I was flipping through pages dedicated to sitcom stars from the 80's and early 90's and came across Jamiee Foxworth who played Judy Winslow on "Family Matters". I always wondered what happened to the character since it seemed she just disappeared or as IMDB.com puts it, "One day Judy went up the stairs and never returned". Apparently the show wanted to focus on her sister Laura and felt poor Jamiee was a distraction so she was unceremoniously excised from the show--no farewell, no goodbye, just a deletion.

As I scrolled through her other film and TV credits I noticed she was credited as "Crave" and not Jamiee Foxworth, and then I noticed the titles of some of her movies: "More Black Dirty Debutantes 32" and "Booty Talk 20: Superfine Sistas". That sucks. Not only did she end up resorting to porn but it's not even good high-budget stuff, it's one film in a series of many by the same name, so it's pretty much just skanky girls shkeezin' it up for the camera. She can't even deliver lines. Apparently she is retired now and has found Jesus or some shit but rumor has it she is still doing it on the side. I feel for you Jamiee and I'm not judging; if starring in the upcoming "Paradise Poon 23: Nubian Princess" gives you what you need, then I say Bravura!

THAT IS CRAZY...oh Judy, what have you done to yourself!

Speaking of lost actors...whatever happened to Judy's cousin...Little Richie?!?...that kid (and name) annoyed me. Looking back, the entire cast was annoying.
Rachel - the annoying loud mouth aunt. Couldn't stand the chick!
Mother Winslow - always insulting Carl...GIVE HIM A BREAK, he's your son.
Laura - always wining about her dramas, always ragging on Steve, yet still loved Stefan!...oooh, so dreamy...it's the SAME FRIGGIN GUY!
Eddie - he wasn't THAT annoying, but you pair him up w/ his buddy Waldo, and Eddie automatically became lame by association.
...and the parents, Carl and Harrett, well, they were decent I guess. Carl was kind of juvenile, while Harrett held the house together.
Oh ya, STEVE URKEL...the worst of the bunch. period. bye bye acting career!

One more actor...what about the little girl who played Matilda and the little daughter in Mrs.Doubtfire??? I always wondered what happened to her. Probably going thru some horrible puberty issues and looks heinous now! yikes!

I wonder how long until I give in to porn. I should probably get one project that's really successful first though. Coincidentally, my next writing project is called 'Brown Balls'. Maybe I'll turn it into a porn.

And yeah, Adge...get a blog. Everyone's doing it. C'mon!
