2. Florida Evans
Before we knew her as J.J.’s mama, Florida Evans (the late Esther Rolle) was a no-nonsense maid on the popular sitcom, "Maude." In the show’s storyline, Florida’s husband gets a raise, allowing her to quit her job and become a full-time housewife and mother. The move also gave birth to the iconic spin-off, "Good Times." Who knows what happened to her hubby James’ good job?
