Thea Vidale starred as the sassy Thea Turrell (known for her trademark one-liner of "See ya!"), a widowed mother of 4 who works in a Houston, Texas supermarket by day and runs a 1-chair beauty salon on the corner of her porch in the evenings.
The show was the first to feature Brandy Norwood, who later went on to become a Grammy-winning singer and the star of her own sitcom, Moesha, (with Yvette Wilson as a member of the supporting cast).
Although the show garnered high ratings at first, ratings declined steadily over the course of the season, and the series was canceled after 19 episodes. It ended the season in 43rd place.Thea Vidale — Thea Armstrong-Turrell, the show's title role; the no-nonsense widow and matriarch of four childrenAdam Jeffries — Jarvis Turrell, Jr.Brandy Norwood — Danesha TurrellJason Weaver — Jerome TurrellBrenden Jefferson — James TurrellYvette Wilson — Lynette Armstrong-RussellCleavant Derricks — Charles RussellSupporting castKenny Ford, Jr. — Leonard, Danesha's boyfriendMiguel A.
