Gimme a Break! Nell Carter Was Gay?

Born on this day in 1948, Nell Carter was a larger than life singer and actress, who starred in the television sitcom, Gimme a Break!, and won a Tony Award for her performance in the Broadway musical, Ain't Misbehavin'. She died suddenly in 2003, and was survived by her three children and domestic partner, Ann Kaser.
