Last week Entertainment Weekly posted reunion photos for the hit television show "Family Matters" and the internet went wild! Everybody loved this show and we were thrilled at the possibility of a show reboot however, longtime watchers like myself, were a little upset over a missing cast member. At the end of season four Judy, played by actress Jamie Foxworth, was sent to her room and NEVER heard from again!
The Root recently caught up with Jamie and found out that she was not absent from the photos due to some sort of scheduling conflict, SHE WASN'T CONTACTED AT ALL!
“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,” Foxworth said.
"When Foxworth saw the photo shoot and even noticed the Momma Winslow photo on the living room coffee table, she knew being omitted was deliberate, and she felt that being included could have been a huge talking point.
“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,” Foxworth said."
In my opinion, this was SUPER SHADY and absolutely wrong. I have nothing against the folks who participated in the photoshoot but somebody should have stood up for Jamie and insisted that she be a part of it. Do you think this was wrong or just a ploy to keep the shoot drama free? Let's discuss it in the comments below!
