I recently saw a Kim Fields biography type show on tv, she's had a very interesting life. She talked about how she and John Henton, who played Overton on the show, dated and then broke up and still worked together. She also talked about how much she enjoyed the rest of the cast but became disenchanted with the producers. She talked about them saying that Living Single was the best black show on tv at the time. She thought they were limiting themselves with that one single statement and asked, why can't we be the best show on TV period? No color involved. Go get em Tootie!
