Default Cousin Myrtle/AuntEsther was annoying even on Diffrent Strokes-LOL

All Lawanda Page did in this DS ep was drag her Sanford and Son character over to the Penthouse and had that same shaky neck character which made me go-"OH BOY-lo


Where was FRED G SANFORD when you needed him-loll

She basically took that style to anything she did. If that is what she did best and that is what the producers wanted, who is to say otherwise? When she was on THE LOVE BOAT with Sherman Hemsley (another actor who basically does the same character) she was loud, rude and basically an Aunt Esther, except she was rich in the LB episode.

Whitman Mayo simply took his Grady character to DS, even though he was called Jethro B. Simpson. The guy even mentioned running a junkyard! How obvious can you get??

That was one of my favorite episodes of season 2! The funny part was how she kicked that rug and pretended to slip. It was funny because it was too obvious she was faking!

I will say this, Lawanda seemed more polished as an actress in this episode tham she was on Sanford and Son.

There are actors/actresses who will play different characters the same way. That is what producers want when they hire people like that. If they wanted a normal person, why look to hire someone like LaWanda Page? Just hire some black actress.

I'm just saying it's a shame she couldn't play anything else

It doesn't bother me and I am sure she was content with doing that. It paid well.

It don't bother me either, I'm just pointing out that she wasn't able to play any other character. I like pointing stuff out, remember?-lol

But you know what, if she went on and played a very different character from Aunt Esther, Aunt Esther fans like myself would be begging her to use her Esther mannerisms, so I think Lawanda page was meant to play Aunt Esther and nothing else.
