Bever-Leigh Banfield as T.C.
26 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"JJ and the Plumber's Helper" finds JJ still out of work and unable to afford wining and dining his girl Vanessa 'the Contessa' (Sheryl Lee Ralph) at a fancy French restaurant, where he gets dumped in front of his mother and Willona. Meanwhile, Bookman's latest assistant is a young girl called T.C. (Bever-Leigh Banfield), given name Teresa, who finally stands up to her employer's insults and earns the respect of the Evans clan. With JJ down in the dumps, Thelma encourages T.C. to dress up in all her gorgeous glory to ask him out on a date, her treat! This was a rare example of an episode missing Ralph Carter as Michael, while the character of T.C. would make one return appearance (played by Ronalda Douglas) in "JJ and T.C." Lovely Bever-Leigh Banfield's best remembered role was as Alex Haley's maternal grandmother Cynthia Palmer in the upcoming ROOTS: THE NEXT GENERATIONS.
