This is a, currently, unstoppable crush. Seriously, even considering she was Thelma Harper AKA "Mama" on Mama's Family. Uh...AND knowing she's a bit of an asshole. I have first hand testimony Lawrence once barked, "Do you know who I am?" to a dear friend of mine. Cliche'...but, WHATEVER. 45 years ago she was cute as a button.

As for her singing career I still kinda hate "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" was always on the radio when I was a kid. ALWAYS. If I hafta hear her singin' gimme the sweet pop of "And I'll Go."
