Personal Quote:

[on her personal life]: My parents and my family really tried to maintain as much of a normal environment as possible. When I went home it wasn't Keshia Knight Pulliam the actress, the glitz, the glamour. It was Keshia the daughter. Oldest of four children, who washed the dishes and did everything she was supposed to do. See more »
