In Whoopi Goldberg's short-lived NBC series Whoopi (2003-2004), she plays Mavis Rae, a member of this one hit wonder band ("Don't Hide Love" in 1986) who took her money and bought a hotel. In the "She Ain't Heavy, She's My Partner" episode, she attends the funeral of one of the trio's members; the other member is Florence (Sheryl Lee Ralph). Her character is the TV version of "sassy" - insufferably annoying with a seemingly bottomless supply of hack insults and one-liners.
