OMG!!! I just found out what happened to the little sister on "Family Matters"?...





Posted Nov. 12, 2002 -- Best remembered as Judy Winslow, the youngest of the three Winslow children from the TV hit sitcom, "Family Matters," Jamie Foxworth was on our TV screens weekly (1989-93), and then, without a trace, she was gone. The character of Judy was merely written out the series at the end of the fourth season without an explanation and May 14, 1993, was the last time Jaimee Foxworth's name appeared in the opening credits while playing with her dollhouse. Foxworth was 10 when she started the show and just 13 at the time she was released. Now a decade later, Foxworth, who's about to turn 23 this December, still struggles with what happened.

At the age of 20, depressed, bankrupt and down on her luck, Foxworth turned to alcohol and turned to a different brand of entertainment. She became a porn star and appeared in more than a dozen hard-core porn videos. The sexier, eyebrow-pierced Foxworth, known in the adult entertainment industry as "Crave," starred in sex videos including, "Booty Talk 20: Super Fine Sistas," "More Black Dirty Debutantes 30" and "The Adventures of Peeping Tom 28."

"I got caught up in the wrong crowd. A lot of my friends were shooting porn films. I was broke, so when I was offered $15,000 to work on a porno I had to say yes. I was offered $15,000 for a half-hour's worth of work. It was hard to resist. That's easy money," she said. "It's not a lifestyle that I really wanted to get into, but I was desperate. It was more of a necessity. People said I had the body and looks for it and it paid good money, it paid the bills. Since I was a former TV actor I got paid a little more than the other girls. But I'm not very proud of some of the things I've done. "
Foxworth began her career at age 5, modeling and appearing in national TV commercials. She appeared on the television series "Amen" and "TV 101," before landing her big break in 1989 on "Family Matters." "Everyone always asks, 'what happened to you?' At the end of the fourth season my character walks up the stairs to her room but she never came down and no one ever mentioned me again. I just vanished. I remember asking my mom 'when are we going back to work,' but that day never came."

Dammitt, Venus!!!

There's more to the story, you can read the entire article on BET.com I was just so amazed that she turned out to be a porn star. I never would have imagined this.

Um sorry but please someone inform me how your life can be over at 13 because you were fired from a freaking tv show? JEEZUS her parents royally screwed her up if she couldnt move on and go to high school and college or whatever.

she obviously should not have become a porn star. if you cant take pride in your work then dont do it, that goes for any profession.

Her parents must have spent all her money that is the real tragedy! she should have a trustfund or something! Isnt there a Gary Coleman Act to prevent this kind of thing?

That's too bad, and I also hope she's able to get her life together.
And it's just so beyond silly that her character was written out of "Family Matters" in order to give more air time to the biggest one-note character of all time (I don't have to say his name, you know who it is!) Really, there is such a lack of imagination when it comes to TV writing!

The act being referred to is the Coogan Act named after Jackie Coogan (1914-84) the original Uncle Fester in the 60's show the Addams Family. He was a child star whose parents squandered everything on him. A law was enforced requiring child actors money to be placed into a trust fund with a small percentage going to the parents/Gaurdians to help allay costs. It becane known as the Coogan Act.

That's what I'd like to know, Barrie_Dude. Was it really to give more screen time to "you-know-who"? But not only did they get rid of Jamie Foxworth, but also Thelma Hopkins, who played the Aunt.

I also heard that Myra, who played the girl that had a huge crush on Urkel, died of breast cancer. Is that true?
