After years and years of being clowned about unemployment Tisha Campbell-Martin reveals on Bossip that Tommy had a job after all!
As reported by The Root, “Tommy really did have a job, I’ll give you a hint,” said. “The woman I was gonna fight, she was Martin’s teacher, Beverly Johnson; in that episode that’s the first time you hear about Tommy’s job,” she explained. “So Tommy talks about him being in the Boys & Girls Club,” she continued. And the reveal: “He was a counselor at the Boys & Girls Club. That’s what he did for a living.”
Where did the joke come from? The Root reports that according to Campbell-Martin, Thomas Mikal Ford, the actor who played Tommy, “used to complain about his character being underdeveloped.”
