Telma Louise Hopkins is a singer and television actress. A member of the 1970’s pop group Tony Orlando and Dawn, she later starred in several television sitcoms, including Bosom Buddies, Gimme a Break!, Family Matters,Getting By and Half & Half. She currently has a semi-regular role in the series Are We There Yet?
Auntie Telma’s career has withstood the test of time, and I guess the old adage is true, “Black don’t crack,” she looks good! She has also played some of my favorite characters on TV. I remember running home on Friday night and watching her on Family Matters.
Happy Burfday Auntie Telma!
