Did You Know?

Trivia:
Mari Morrow who played Nikki's best friend Desiree during the first half of the season was never written out and disappears midway through the first season. However, it is widely believed that the producers felt that the chemistry would be better if a heavier actress portrayed her best friend. She was later replaced by Yvette Wilson.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: Technically speaking, there is no way Kim, Nikki, Stevie, and T could have spent five years as students at Santa Monica College. Santa Monica College in reality is only a two year junior college.See more »

Professor Stanley Oglevee:[tutoring Kim] What do you know about Malcolm X?
Kimberly 'Kim' Parker:It was way too long, but Denzel was fiiiine!

Modern Day Lucy, 20 May 2005
Author: Robert Carroll from United States

I LOVE THIS SHOW! I have seen every episode and I laugh out loud each and every time I do. The show is sheer entertaining! It is not meant to give any meaning, it is just what it is, a side-splitting comedy. The characters are very believable and the guest stars are stupendous! I LOVE Mo'Nique as Nikki Parker and Countess Vaughn as her dim-witted daughter who can sang, Kim Parker (you will fall in love each and every time you see them) they are hilarious and a GREAT team of actors! HEYYY!! Dang Mama! The shows originality is overwhelming (Definately a CLASSIC)! I would love to own ALL seasons! The sets are colorful, the plots are simple and hysterical! I would love to see the series come back! They should do an encore, like they have done for the Brady Bunch and Eight is Enough!
