To make ends meet, Thea holds down two jobs: a checker at Bagley’s Supermarket (her day job) and a hairdresser at night, working from her home.
As the series progressed, Thea quit her day job to become partners with her friend, Roy Bennett (Blake Clark) in an eatery called Heavenly Bar-B-Q.
Other regular characters included Thea’s sister, Lynette (Yvette Wilson), Ricky, her co-worker at Bagley’s (Miguel Nunez), and Walt and Claude – customers at Roy’s Heavenly Bar-B-Q (played by Dennis Burkley and Scotch Byerley respectively).
