I just saw RAW tonight and immediately recognized the lady who plays Shelton’s Benjamin’s mother. It was actress/comedian Thea Vidal. For those who are not familiar with her, she has been a decently popular comedian in the black comedy circuit for years after appearing in a special hosted by late comedian Rodney Dangerfield. She also briefly had her own show on ABC titled “Thea” in the early 90’s that also starred a young Brandy Norwood.
