Jamie Gertz from Still Standing wouldn't even date this dude.
Leah Remini (King of Queens) was hot before she blew up. But this is the "before" photo - when she was way out of Doug Heffernen's league. (In the later shows, they're a more believable match).
Since it was the Drew Carey's show, he decided to get a skinny girlfriend. Although in real life, Mimi would be his girl
Jim Belushi's wife (According to Jim) had three kids and still kept her shape? Maybe this is because the writers' wives all blew up after having their babies. Their fantasy would be to have them retain some sort of sexuality. These shows are just their idealized version of their reality.
Even the eponymous George Lopez Show had to keep the fantasy going. His wife Angie is way out of his league.
Samantha (Bewitched) wouldn't date Darren - she would treat him in a way more similar to the way her sister Sarena threats him.
I guess if you find a scantily clad woman in a bottle - she belongs to you. Again, a fantasy situation is created to justify such a romance.
But these guys have nothing on the video game writers who create characters like this...
Or the graphic novel writers who create women like this.
Tyler Perry's House of Pain uses actors that are in more realistic relationships.
So did the writers of Family Matters.
Okay, Tichina Arnold (Everybody Hates Chris)is no Florida Evans - But she not Stacey Dash or Melissa Ford either.
Yeah... Bernie Mac's wife (Wanda) was hot. But he plays a famous comedian... and the kids are not hers through birth.
Claire Huxtable was (is) the model for many aspirational mothers - even Black ones. But she was a lawyer and Cliff was a doctor. Cliff didn't work for UPS or at some production plant.
Shows like All of Us don't count. Lisa Raye and Vidal (from Out All Night, I forget his real name) were divorced. And Elise Neal didn't last on the show.
Kelsey Grammer (The Game and Girlfriends) seems to be the only Hollywood insider who portrays Black women as more than just fat and dumpy caricatures.
