Just found out Phylicia is OLDER than Debbie (1948), Debbie was born in 1950.
And they are half Cherokee indian, their daddy is Indian. That explains the real soft and curly hair, especially on Debbie.
I'm amazed that as a dancer, Debbie is obviously more heavier. But as mentioned, she was always the more loud, and outgoing of the two. And I have to admit, I always thought she was prettier was she was younger. However, both of these women are HIGHLY intelligent, and accomplished. Debbie especially is THE go-to person for fine directing, and choreography; she's done the Oscars for many years now, and she's mentored so many great dancer/choreographers. I'm proud of these accomplished, classy ladies
