Still 'Hangin'!
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
"Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" may be a distant, yet fond memory for many fans of ABC's T.G.I.F. lineup, but the series' former stars Holly Robinson Peete and Mark Curry are still ... well, hangin'. While filling in for Billy Bush as a guest host on Access Hollywood Live this week, Peete said she and Curry see each other all the time because their kids are in the same class. "When you do a TV series with someone for five or six years, you either never want to see that person again or they're a permanent member of your family," Peete said. "The irony is that Mark's daughter and my son are in the same class so I hang with Mr. Cooper every day." "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" aired from 1992 to 1997 and centered on single high-school teacher and coach Mr. Cooper (Curry), a man who got through every situation life threw his way with humor, including living with two female roommates, one being Peete. Are you surprised Peete and Curry still hang out?
