Life After Cosby

Even the kids are all right.

Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Theo)


While no one would ever mistake the mildly funny buddy sitcom Malcolm & Eddie (UPN) for Cosby, Warner’s formulaic situation comedy, which co-starred hyperactive comedian Eddie Griffin, ran for an impressive four years (1996-2000). One more season and the former Cosby kid would have been looking at another syndication check. Warner was last seen in a cameo, playing a man with a brain tumor opposite Jada Pinkett-Smith on Lifetime’s Hawthorne.


Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa)


Forget her mid-‘90s syndicated daytime talkfest The Tempestt Bledsoe Show. Bledsoe’s current gig: She and former A Different World actor and longtime boyfriend Darryl M. Bell (we see you, Mr. Homeboys in Outer Space) are featured in Fox Reality Channel’s Househusbands of Hollywood). So what if they’re not actually married?
