Quotes

Big Dee Dee Thorne: [after bumping into Phyliis holding an object in the hallway] Phyllis, what is that monstrosity? And I don't mean that riot of polyester and lint you call an outfit.
Phyllis Thorne: It's a cuckoo clock. I got it for Mona at a garage sale.
Big Dee Dee Thorne: In other words, JUNK.
Phyllis Thorne: *You* found a home, why shouldn't it?

Valarie Pettiford
8 August 2009 | by jackstone72See all my reviews

Valarie Pettiford is funny as hell. She should have her own TV show. When i watch half&half i am always waiting for her spot. She is one of the best comedic actresses around. You can always tell who is good when they are the one you watch in a scene full of actors. She is a beautiful funny woman who commands the stage as well as anyone. I would like to see more of her on television. It is a shame this series is gone.A spin off would have been nice. Maybe the Big Dee Dee show. I think she took that character made it shine. Telma Hopkins was a perfect foe. I think the two of them should have their own show. I would watch it. Those two verbally sparring for thirty minutes would be hilarious. Come on, give us more Valarie Pettiford...please!!
