We were first introduced to Holly Robinson Peete as the doe-eyed doyenne from 21 Jump Street in the ’80s, a brown girl on TV who used to bust wayward teens with heartthrob Johnny Depp. Fast-forward 30 years, and Peete is now the mother of four, married for 20 years, an entrepreneur working on her own lifestyle brand, a tireless advocate and a “blacktress of a certain age” trying to make it happen.
Like most black women, Peete does it all. Which is not to say that she’s perfect, or even claiming to be. But in the docudrama For Peete’s Sake, which debuted earlier this year on OWN, the stunning 51-year-old actress has been sharing her world with us—a world that she has built with her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete; twins R.J. and Ryan Elizabeth, 17; middle son Robinson, 13; and baby boy Roman, 10—every Saturday.
