Tichina Arnold best known for her role as “Pam” from the hit, iconic sitcom ‘Martin‘ chatted it up with Andy on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on whether or not there would ever be a reunion. Although Tichina would be interested in the idea, there’s still the rift raft of the sexual harassment lawsuit between Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell-Martin which might make it nearly impossible.
“We’ve all gone our separate ways, and we didn’t know ‘Martin’ would be as big as it was.”
“We didn’t know we were part of an iconic show,” she said.
Although Tichina went on to play roles in a few more sitcoms, but told Sister2Sister that she’s most recognized character is “Pam.”
“I always get Pam. People always tell me I’m gonna always be Pam. That means I did my job right,” she said.
When asked about the lawsuit she responded:
“The lawsuit was a very interesting thing to be a part of. Tisha and I have been friends since childhood, and Martin and I are still friends,” said Tisha who had to compartmentalize her relationships when the legal matter was underway.
“There’s a point where you have to be professional and a point where you have to be personal, and I was very well aware of separating the two, and Tisha always respected that,” she said. “It was very weird, but I handled it as best I could.”
I could only imagine how awkward that must’ve been for all the characters on the show. I know one thing for sure is I loved and still love ‘Martin.’ Honestly, there hasn’t been another show out as iconic since and with the current reality show craze, I’m sure there never will be. Quiet as kept, Tisha hasn’t went on to do much else since ‘Martin’, but as we all know, that hasn’t stopped Martin Lawrence from racking in more gwap from all his ‘Big Momma‘ movies, Bad Boys, etc. I’ve always felt like that whole harassment lawsuit affected her in career in the entertainment industry so negatively that maybe that pretty much shut it down. Oh well **shrugs** she had to do what she had to do.
So, am I the only one hoping for a ‘Martin‘ reuion????
