    Thelma From Good Times... Bern Nadette Stanis!

    in Radio

    Please join me as I welcome Thelma from Good Times, Bern Nadette Stanis!

    Stanis is best known as Thelma from Good Times! But there's much more to her then that. In the 70s, Bern Nadette Stanis was the personification of Black Beauty. As sophisticated and graceful as she was, she still became TV's first Black sex symbol or "It" girl. Thelma/Bern Nadette and The Evans Family also proved many stereotypes wrong about the ghetto and the young black girl, like for instance...that all Black girls and Black families in the ghetto had no hopes, dreams, or class. Thelma showed that a "ghetto girl" had hopes and dreams, intelligence, respect, dignity and grace, and it wasn't just acting, Bern Nadette was that naturally. She introduced a new definitive image of the young Black girl and woman.

    She is a wonderful, graceful dancer which she displayed several times on Good Times. In everything Bern Nadette did it was marked with delicacy with diminutive beauty, form, or grace.

    Her grace and beauty was a welcoming presence on TV in the 1970s and still is today and will be as long as there's a TV. Her dramatic, comedic charm, witty one-liners, daintiness, winsomeness, sexy but innocent image, were versatile qualities that made her a great talent and great favorite who'll never be forgotten.

    We will also be discussing her hot new books, “Situations 101” and “For Men Only”.

    Chef Elliott's Entertaining Solutions

    in Self Help

    Chef Elliott is honored to share his technical skills and culinary wisdom concerning the Alzheimer’s Disease with his dear friend, Bern Nadette Stanis aka Thelma Evans.

    Bernadette Stanis has come a long way from playing the feisty teenage daughter, Thelma, on the hit series Good Times.  We all remember how she and JJ battled it out to see who would get into the one bathroom shared by the family of five, first.  Although the Evans family did not have a lot of money and lived in the projects, they still had love and integrity. 

    Born Bernadette Stanislaus and raised in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York in the projects, Bernadette’s story was ironically similar to Thelma’s character on Good Times.  She is one of five children and her mother and father worked hard to ensure that they all received a good education.  Bernadette says they were taught that education and determination to be someone in life is key to being successful.  As a young girl, Bernadette was exposed to the arts, mainly music and dance, enabling her to enrol in Julliard’s School of the Arts.  Her talent was evident and while in her sophomore year she was selected for the part of Thelma on Good Times.   She describes it as an “incredible” experience.   “Being the rookie, I was watching them.   I learned everything just by watching them and how professional they were.

    in Music

    Showmanship is the best description of jazz drummer Paula Hampton.  The Middletown, Ohio native arrived in New York in the late 1960s and what was meant as a short visit turned into the rest of her life. Pianist Jill McManus’ Jazz Sisters hired her quickly, and Paula remained with them through the mid-1970s. She joined Sandra Reeves-Phillips on The Late Great Ladies of Jazz & Blues Europe and Africa tour.  When the band returned to the U.S., Paula and pianist Lillette Jenkins stayed behind to perform in Bern, Switzerland for three weeks.  Stateside, Paula joined the great Dakota Staton for 5 years. She performed from with The Hampton Family Orchestra, lead by her mother, Aletra Hampton, featuring her uncle, Slide Hampton and aunt, Dawn Hampton.  With jazz pianist Bertha Hope, Paula formed Jazzberry Jam! with vocalist Pat Spann and bassist, Carline Ray.  Jazzberry Jam! performed internationally for 15 years.  They performed at the 1998 Child of the Sun Festival in Lakeland, Florida. The documentary film, Les Femmes du Jazz, featured Jazzberry Jam! and won the Best Documentary Award at France’s Bairritz Film Festival (FIPA) in 2000. Bertha, Paula, and Carline received the Mary Lou Williams Women In Jazz Award at Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center in 2005. In 2006, Jazzberry Jam! provided the live music for the well-received documentary, Been Rich All My Life, which chronicled the historically rich lives of Harlem’s famed former showgirls, The Silver Belles. The Jazz Foundation of America keeps Paula fairly busy performing and she works with other musicians as well.
