Armed with an acid dry wit and full arsenal of sarcasm and sass, character comedienne Marla Gibbs showed up on 70s TV with a bang in middle age (44). Landing the feisty maid role on the popular ground-breaking CBS comedy "The Jeffersons" (1975) eventually led to her very own sitcom "227" (1985) a decade later and international celebrity. A divorced mother with three children (Angela, Dorian, Joseph) at the time of her initial success, it was a job transfer from Detroit to Los Angeles while working as a United Airlines reservation clerk that set up this more-than-welcome surprise and change of destiny.
