I have A Ebony magazine where she did an interview about how depressed she got when she was on 227. Also in another interview she did she said that she regreted going off and doing Jackee because of her ego and she saw how much Marla meant to her.

Aww!!!!! Wow, I didn't know she was depressed, mmaybe that's why she broke down in tears on one episode of Celebrity Fit Club. I was taken aback, I couldn't believe that she was breaking down like that. I felt bad for her...

I got love for her but her ego was just too much.

Her best perfomance(besides Sandra Clark of course!) is The Women of Brewster Place. I strongly suggest you all check it out. It premiered in 1989 to huge ratings(Paul Winfred a.ka. Julian C. Barlow is in there along with Oprah, Lonette McKee, Robin 'golddigger' Givens, and Lynn Whitfield is also in there including they guy who played Brandy's father on Moesha)

Her and Tim Reid were the funniest on the show. I couldn't really get into the show, Tia and Tamera were too corny and too fake for me especially when someone put the idea in their heads that they weren't black enough so they totally changed into fake ghetto girls.

Yes, Jackee's ego was too big. She had an excellent role on 227. She stated once that the cast of 227 was too big and she wanted more air time.

Given that her character made excellent entrances and exits we didn't need to see her for 20 minutes during the show.

I remember 'Double your Trouble' with Jackee---and enjoyed this movie.

Somebody in the comment section for this YouTube video posted the theory that putting Jackée's Sandra Clarke character in a show w/ a predominately white cast wasn't going to work. Basically, the commentator's logic or rationale was that while Jackée during the peak of 227, had a huge following within the black community, the general public more than likely didn't know who she was. In effect, Jackée was a victim if you want to call that, of "pop-culture isolation".
