Jamiee Foxworth Speaks Out About ‘Family Matters’ Reunion Shoot
Remember the episode of “Family Matters” when Judy Winslow went to her room and was never seen again?
Apparently, Judy is still sittin up in her room because Jamiee Foxworth was noticeably missing from Entertainment Weekly‘s reunion shoot celebrating the 30th anniversary of the hit sitcom.
Speaking with The Root, Jaimee revealed she never even received a phone call from Entertainment Weekly about the shoot, but it’s no sweat off of her back.
I was not invited at all. I wasn’t even contacted.
Shawn [Waldo] sent me a text two days before it was released. He asked if anyone contacted me, and he just wanted to let me know that EW contacted them to do a reunion cover. And he just didn’t want me to be shocked when it came out.
The people in the picture are more important than the picture itself. It was a slap in the face from Entertainment Weekly. I don’t think there’s any good explanation. If they want to use adult films as the reason, I’m not the first person to do adult films and won’t be the last.
By being included, it could have started a conversation about how certain people in a family don’t always do what everyone agrees with. Sure, I did adult films, but the only people that are going to be shocked about it are kids. It’s not shocking. I did not kill anyone. I didn’t murder anyone. The only pain I inflicted on anyone was myself.
You can’t let people trample all over you. At some point you have to speak out. And let people know some things are not OK. I had to speak out and say something.
The 37-year-old actress is now a dedicated mother to her son and she’s currently working on her memoir.
