This has been quite a week for Marla Gibbs. On Tuesday, the 90-year-old actress finally6 received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Today, Soap Opera Digest announced that she will be appearing on Days of our Lives starting on August 17th with her 227 co-star Jackée Harry.

“#DAYS fam, are ready to meet Paulina’s mother,” Harry wrote. “When your family’s around you, you’re never alone!”

That’s right, Maaaaaaaarrrrryyyy is going to play Sandra’s mom. I wonder how that conversation went? Did they have Harry call her to say, “Do you want to play my mom?”

I haven’t watched Days in a long time, but I am tuning in for this.

Marla Gibbs received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday. Several of her former co-stars were there, including her 227 husband, Hal Williams.

The actor, who also starred on The Waltons and Sanford & Son, looks amazing for 86. In fact, he looks exactly the same but with greyer hair.

Marla Gibbs was finally given a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today after being in the business for over 50 years. However, there was a scary moment actress who turned 90 last month.

According to KABC’s George Pennacchio, she looked as though she was overcome* by the heat because it is as hot as she is old here today. Thankfully, after she rested for a bit, The Jeffersons’ star told the reporter that “She was overwhelmed by the honor but she says she’s fine now! 😁”

Since the show must go on, it did. She was able to get her star, and now whenever we are on Hollywood Blvd, we can see it.

Congrats to Gibbs. It is an honor that was a long time coming.

*This is a reference to The Jeffersons’ pilot when she finds out that Louise Jefferson and Helen Willis both live in the luxury Manhattan high rise. She says to them, “Well, how come we overcame, and nobody told me.”

On June 14th, Marla Gibbs turned the big 9-0. However, you would know it by looking at her. She looks just as good now as she did when she played Florence on The Jeffersons and Mary Jenkins on 227. Just like those two sitcoms, she is ageless.

Back in the ’70s, people were addicted to watching Marla Gibbs on The Jeffersons, Todd Bridges on Diff’rent Strokes, Lisa Whelchel and Kim Fields on The Facts of Life and Glenn Scarpelli on One Day At a Time.

That was then, where are Florence, Willis, Blair, Tootie and Alex now? They all got together over the weekend at an event for the National Parks Conservation Association. While we got this amazing photo of them still looking totally far out, we also need to remember we need to preserve these parks. We want our kids to enjoy them as much as we did. Then we want their kids to enjoy it as much our kids did and so on.

Just like syndication, home video and streaming keep their shows alive, we need to keep out national parks thriving.
