"Passions", "Jeffersons" vet Marla Gibbs guests on "Lincoln Heights"
Her turn at bat. Comedienne Marla Gibbs, who shot to fame as Florence Johnston, George Jefferson's jive talking maid on The Jeffersons and later the sass-a-licious Mary on 227, will guest star on ABC Family's sleeper hit Lincoln Heights next season, according to an Essence.com Q&A.
Gibbs, who according to the the interview, has been recovering from an anyuerism and stroke in recent years, is also known to fans of the wacky, soon-to-be defunct DirecTV soap Passions as mean-spirited homophobe Aunt Irma. Glad to hear Marla is still doing her thang!
