When you’re discussing famous sister duos of past and present, no list would be complete without the amazing Phylicia Rashad and Debbie Allen. But in case you’ve been living under a large rock somewhere in outer space for the past few decades, let us give you a quick refresher on why we’re featuring Phylicia and Debbis in this week’s #HairBattleThursday:
- Phylicia played Clair Huxtable on the long-running sitcom The Cosby Show
- Clair Huxtable!
- In 2004, Phylicia was the first African-American woman to receive a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play
- Acclaimed choreographer and dancer (and actress) Debbie Allen is the main reason why the television adaptation of Fame was so bomb. She’s also one of the masterminds behind A Different World.
- Between the two of them, they have more than 20 Emmy, Tony, Golden Globe, Satellite and NAACP Image awards and nominations, as well as honorary degrees at Brown University and Spelman and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
We could go on and on, but we think you get the picture!

Anon Request | “The head-scratching confusion on tom’s face when the interviewer said ichabbie don’t have romantic chemistry”
Tom’s face tho, it’s like he’s personally offended by that statement.
This woman is a lie. You know you messed up when even Nicole is side-eyeing you.
#he’s literally doing the thing from the office
#I’M FUCKING CRYING#nicole’s face is like#u done messed up honey#tom is like#what#what are you saying#do you watch the show#i’m in love with the gorgeous fantastic beautiufl woman#how dare you#literally what the heck#when they do it in s3 or smth this lady is gonna be like#well damn
I love how Nicole has to take a sip of her drink to cover her face from reacting.
#I’M NOT PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN THEM HAVING A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP #BUT TO SAY THEY DON’T HAVE CHEMISTRY IS RIDICULOUS
see if this had been an Australian movie the Tasmanian joke would have been about her only having one head
10 years well spent, really.
waiT IS THAT A LUCK DRAGON
DID HE MAKE HIS HEDGE INTO A LUCK DRAGON
Watch!: And when you started out, there were almost no Asian-Americans on TV. Now you’re Watson. The TV my Asian-American daughter grows up watching will be very different than what I grew up watching.
Lucy: It is significant, and I think we still have a long way to go. It is good that you’ll have to explain to her that when Daddy was a teenager, there wasn’t anybody like her on television. People say I’m a pioneer, but I don’t recognize it because I’m still living it. Maybe on my last breath if they name a street after me in the city, I’ll say, “Wow, I made a difference.” Right now, it doesn’t feel like it. [x]
