JALEEL WHITE ON WHY NICE GUYS FINISHED LAST IN THE ’90S
Monday, May 14, 2018

He rose to fame playing lovable nerd Urkel on Family Matters, but for Jaleel White being a nice guy didn’t do him any favors in the romance department.

His declaration came as a response to an old interview where Sandra “Pepa” Denton (Salt-N-Pepa) said the reason she didn’t date Will Smith back in the day was because he was too nice and she only went for guys that were “thugs and hoodlums.”

Jaleel shared an Instagram praising Pepa’s honesty and commented with his own experience trying to date in the ’90s.

“I’m gonna just leave this here,” the 41-year-old wrote to his 266K followers. “Never seen a celebrity Black woman admit this. Props to you, Pepa, for spitting a little known truth. But if you weren’t bout that thug life as a youngster, smoking hella weed or getting paid for playing in the league, the finest sistas were not checking for you in the 90s.The jerks, rappers and jocks scooped em all up. The past is the past, but oh the stories I could share. Props to you again, Pepa.”

Do you agree with Jaleel? Do the ladies always prefer the bad boys?
