Farewell, Grandma Huxtable

June 1, 2011 / Posted by:

Just bask in the torpedo of judgement that Grandma Huxtable is throwing with such ease. The purse of lips, the lowering of the chin and the stone cold eyes let you know that you better sit on your hands and keep your words on the safe side of your mouth. Something tells me that Grandma Huxtable is throwing this same look at the angels in heaven when they asked her if Raven-Symone’s eyebrows look chewed up and spit out in person.

Clarice Taylor, who was nominated for an Emmy for playing Grandma Anna Huxtable, passed away from heart failure in Englewood, NJ on Monday at the age of 93. Clarice also played Harriet on Sesame Street and the Good Witch in The Wiz. Clarice is survived by her two sons and five grandchildren.

Rest in peace, Clarice. May heaven be filled with nothing but clip-on gold earrings. I will tell a Brooklyn doctor to “SIT DOWN, HO” with my eyes in your honor today.
