When I first saw Amber Stevens West on the now defunct show Greek, I thought that Matthew Knowles and his former lady, Miss Tina, had a secret child that they didn’t want to claim.
Then I thought that Miss Tina had to have some strong genes to spit out a secret love child, who also turned out to be one funny actress.
After putting my expert Google search skills to work, I realized that Amber Stevens West is not Beyonce’s secret sister, and yes they do favor.
If you’re wondering where you know this pretty lady from, well you may have seen her on New Girl, 22 Jump Street, or Criminal Minds. But her starring role on The Carmichael Show is one of her most memorable performances, because she’s damn funny.
Amber plays Maxine, a feminist Millennial who is always spitting facts about principles, but is easily swayed when it comes to actually executing those principles. Like the time she argued her boyfriend’s parents about going to a live Bill Cosby comedy show, but turned around and watched The Cosby Show with her boyfriend’s parents.
Her character is a hoot on the comedy show. Check out what else you should know about the funny gal.
1. SHE MARRIED GARETH FROM ‘THE WALKING DEAD’
The two met on the set of Greek, and the rest is history. According to People, Adam and Amber married back in 2014 in Los Angels, and from the looks of the photos, they did it big. I’m not mad at them.
The duo opted for a holiday Vanity Fair theme for the wedding at the Italian-style villa, with the help of wedding planner Carly Rae Design. Fleur de Rye arranged the flowers while Cake and Art handled the cake, and Dart DJ provided the music.
Très LA catered the nuptials – which was a big job considering the couple bonded over food on the very first day they met.
People also reported that when they exchange rings, they did so with custom jewelry from XIV Karats. That company is so baller, that they won’t even put their inventory on the Internet. Sheesh!
2. HER FATHER IS A FAMOUS VOICE OVER ACTOR
According to his Wiki page, Shadoe was host of American Top 40 from ’88 to 95, and he was once the announcer for The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson. He now hosts Top of the World, and he co-hosts Mental Radio, which takes “an entertaining approach to UFOs and paranormal topics.”
3. HER SISTER IS A MODEL AND A HIGH END NAIL TECHNICIAN
Amber’s sister is so beautiful! Sheesh! And her nail designs are cold. Check her out on Instagram.
