The personal nickname of actress Holly Robinson Peete given to her by husband Rodney Peete. When asked, “What does the name mean?” Holly just says “I don’t want to expand on it.”
Her nickname was revealed on a 1997 Valentine’s Day “Girlfriends” segment of the syndicated talk show THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW/SYN/1986-2011.
Note: Holly Robinson Peete was the costar of the police drama 21 JUMP STREET/FOX/SYN/1987-91 and the sitcom HANGIN’ WITH MR. COOPER/ABC/1992-97.
Holly and her singer girlfriend, Terry Ellis (from the female singing group En Vogue) nicknamed each other Stupid and Dumb. “I’m Stupid. She’s Dumb. She’s Stupid. I’m Dumb,” they laughingly interjected.
