What happened to 'Mama'?
Q What did Vicki Lawrence do after Mama's Family?
—Pat Walker, Minerva, Ohio
Toward the end of Mama's Family in 1990, Lawrence, 57, who played the TV show's colorfully comedic curmudgeon, was tapped to host Win, Lose or Draw. "It was nice to be me on camera instead of an old lady all the time," she says. Afterward, she hosted her own talk show for two seasons, but split after creative conflicts with the producers. Now she presents her own touring theatrical show, Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two Woman Show, featuring show-biz anecdotes from Lawrence and a performance by her alter ego, Mama.
