She had one of those faces that you recognized and a name that you didn't. However, when you saw her, you knew you were in for a treat, as she had a wonderful gift for comedy. That gift would take her through several top shows like Welcome Back Kotter, Angie and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, where she played Mary's promiscuous younger sister.
And even though she was memorable in everything she did, fame never really passed the flirting stage and she is virtually forgotten today by the mainstream public. Even when she died unexpectedly in 2005 at the young age of 52, the news traveled slow, creating very little interest.
She certainly had the talent to be more well known and I continue to scratch my head as to why her and all of the other wonderful people on this blog continue to slip through the cracks. Blame it on timing, her agent, herself. Who knows? The only thing I know for sure is that Debralee Scott is Not Very Famous...but should be. And she's with good company.
