Reginald veljohnson dating
Some years back, many people were wondered why the American actor changed the spelling of his birth name, until when Vel Johnson, himself, cleared the air.The Hollywood big shot said he changed the spelling, “because I wanted a name people would remember.”Although he didn’t talk about it, after clearing the air on his name, many people felt he did so because of his father’s action years back.Till date, no one knows why his father left the family when Vel Johnson was 13 years old.
He is best known for playing policeman characters such as Carl Winslow on the sitcom Family Matters, which ran from 1989 to 1998, and LAPD Sgt. Before embarking on an acting career, he changed his name from Reginald Vel Johnson (his birth name) to Reginald Vel Johnson.
My favorite however, was the rumor of him and James Avery(Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince) being gay lovers. The two quintessential black TV Dad's of the 90's being romantically linked.
The only thing that could possibly top that, would be a tryst between Will Smith and Darius Mc Crary.
I like to pretend that his name is Al, and his character is the same one from Die Hard. Reginald has stayed low since the conclusion of Family Matters, choosing bit parts in movies, and a few TV shows.
ABC should have done that, it could have been a great marketing tool. Carl the Great playing cops because he likes the Village People, or because he is choosing masculine roles, so he can throw people off. Gay or not, his character, and Family Matters will always be a fond memory of my childhood.

Back in the early 90's, when i was a small child, TGIF ruled my Friday nights. All the hits were there, like Full House, Perfect Strangers, Hanging with Mr. As a child who had a less than normal upbringing, these cheesy sitcoms gave me an escape to what I thought a family should be, and Carl Winslow was the kind of Father I wanted.
