Why Did Everyone Hate Nell Carter

I didn't hate her, but I didn't like the sassy stereotype roles she often played.

Ain't Misbehaving is still one of the great nights in the theater for me and Miss Nell was a primary reason. Her singing just sliced through you and every second onstage, it was like she was your best friend and she was performing just for you. The night of her Tony win, fellow Tony award winner for "The Act", Liza Minnelli introduced her to coke (lower case "c") and if she became difficult, it was likely the drugs.

From the old SUMMER STOCK MEMORIES thread:

During rehearsals for a workshop production of a new musical by Galt MacDermot (of HAIR fame), I was confronted by an angry Nell Carter. I can’t remember the details exactly, but I think I was sent out to retrieve lunch and brought back the wrong thing. I do remember how she reacted – she kicked me. Once again I was surprised and startled, and once again I said nothing. I hate it when people whose talent I admire disappoint me by childish, inappropriate behavior. I can never watch them again without remembering these moments of reality.

I saw her once in person in a gay traffic school class I took in Hollywood many years ago. She kind of surprised everyone because she had bleached her hair blond and looked like she could barely walk. But when they first did roll call, her voice gave here a way. Even the facilitator was shocked she was there. She claimed her girlfriend was the one who got the ticket. That was the first time I even heard she was gay. Of course during the lunch break, a bunch of star fucker queens were all over her wanting to talk to her, buy her lunch so she wouldn't have to walk, etc.

Immensely and according to the people who knew her extraordinarily kind and generous, Carter was also extremely self destructive. Which probably stemmed from the childhood trauma of being raped at gunpoint and giving birth to child who was the product of that rape.

[quote] Hardy, then 16 years old, was raped at gunpoint by a man she knew who gave her a ride home from a performance with the Renaissance Ensemble. Hardy became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter, Tracey, the following year. Hardy attempted to raise Tracey alone, but found it too difficult. She sent Tracey to live with her elder sister Willie (Carter would later claim Tracey was the product of a short lived marriage, but revealed the truth in an interview in 1994).

She had star quality; the camera loved her. I loved her on Gimme A Break. There were some crazy stories about drug use during that time. I've read stories about her being high on the set and not being able to work. Then, apparently she went missing for awhile, and the crew went to her home to check on here, where they found her passed out and totally nude. She apparently didn't get along with Dolph Sweet at first but became close to him before he passed away; she sang at his funeral. She also apparently doted on the youngest female cast member and later dumped her for the younger, cuter Joey Lawrence. She was close to the Lawrence family and visited them on holidays for years. She made a guest appearance on their sitcom, Brotherly Love. Every once in awhile, someone on Rosie's blog will ask Rosie about working with Nell Carter, and Rosie will say something cryptic but negative. (As if Rosie can complain about working with a difficult person.)

Telma has worked steadily for almost 40 years (mostly in tv) and looks great. Besides her work with dawn she was a highly sought after backup singer (she did the shut yo mouth part on the theme from shaft and backed up johnnie Taylor on disco lady)

Rosie complained that Nell would only call her by her characters name when they were weren’t shooting.

My favorite episode was when Nell was having her weight watchers group at her house. Each time a member of the group would enter, everyone would sing "you're a disgusting fat-soooo"...which I guess was supposed to be camaraderie?

Anyhow, everyone from the group is present and having their meeting, and then Chief walks in, because of course it's his home...

Then everyone turns around and sings the song to him.

Oh good lord did I laugh my ten year old little ass off at that, back in the day.

R146, they just showed that very episode on Antenna TV just last week and I turned to it just as the scene you posted above was coming on.

R145, I love that episode. The scene between Nell and the Chief in the kitchen binging is great too. "I hate myself." "I'll eat yours." "The hell you will!"

The writers thought up some crazy scenarios for the chief. One time Nell set him up on a blind date with a transgender woman.

People did a similar hatchet job on Andy gibb r128 also in 1980. Supposedly he was devastated about how bad it made him look.

They got stuck in the elevator because the leader of their weight loss group, showed up and was fat again. And Nell and her fat group made fun of him because he was now fat again, and he runs off crying and is going to jump off the roof (or from a high floor). The group races to save him and the elevator gets stuck. Nell reads the sign that says "Weight limit 2000 lbs"

She was always the first one at the craft services and the last one to leave.
