Can't believe she didn't get an Oscar nomination for her stunning performance as Doris Finsecker in FAME.
I heard she turned down the starring role in PRETTY WOMAN. Imagine if she had accepted the part. The 90's would have been all about Teefy.
Gary Morton talked her out of it.
She was already a 10 year has been by the time Pretty Woman came out.
She was in Grease 2 though.
Anne Meara should have got a Supporting Actress nomination (supposedly the studio tried to get her one according to another DL post.)
DON'T YOU KIDS EVER THINK OF ANYONE BUT YOURSELF!!
Maureen Teefy was a "10 year has been by the time Pretty Woman came out"????
And what the fuck does that make you, r2?
Maureen Teefy's credits include:
What credits do you have r2?
I'm of the opinion that Teefy is only now coming into her prime, and with the right role, could be vaulted back into the stratosphere of fame. For instance, if she had Julia Roberts' role in AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. Or Tilda Swinton's role in I AM LOVE.
I met Maureen at a dinner w murual friends in the early 90s. She was married with kids and had pretty much given up acting.
What is this WHET thing I keep seeing on DL. You can't all be listening to the same radio station.
WHET is "what ever happened to" the misspelling is tradition.
and Maureen Teefy is 60! Play my daughter? Really?
She was cute but dear god, who did she sleep with to get cast in "Grease 2" when she can't carry a note to save her life. True, no one in that movie was a great singer, but her voice is a rake across a chalkboard.
Comeback? I think you have to arrived once in order to comeback.
OH! I love Valerie Cherish! She was born too late and started too soon, or something like that.
Fuck Valerie Cherish, let's refocus this discussion where it belongs.
Paul McCrane was the real star of Fame. I tried to dress like him when I was in high school.
Didn't she die from an overdose of her name?
Little Mo has always seemed a delight, at least to this little 'mo.
I liked her a lot in "Fame" but how could that school have accepted her when she showed no talent whatsoever?
But they also seemed to have accepted the fat hula dancer.
Are auditions at that school really so disorganized and chaotic?
Hey guys, any updates on La Teefy this evening? Thanks in advance.
WEHT, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ?
WHET, WHAT HAPPENED EVER TO ?
KNOCK KNOCK. WHO'S THERE?
BABS's UVULA WHO ?
I DON'T KNOW BABS.
Just checking in. This thread didn't take off quite like I thought it would. Any Teefy updates?
Maureen deserved another Supporting nod for her nuanced work in Supergirl.
I agree that the '90s should have been much more Teefy-centric.
I loved her in Fame and Grease 2. Paul McCrane was boring and nothing to look at. It looks like she went the wife and kids route.
Isn't her at a dinner twenty years ago. Had a hubby and kids, didn't seem too concerned about getting acting jobs anymore.
[quote]True, no one in that movie was a great singer
Sorry, but Adrian Zmed and Lorna Luft have terrific voices.
