    To keep track of all the people who have arrived on the scene with a massive explosion only to disappear and possibly never be heard from again, EgoTV presents “Where they At?”, a status update of where those people have done since the limelight has faded.

    Today’s Subject: Michelle Thomas

    How It All Started:Michelle was the daughter of Phynjuar Thomas, a stage actress and Dennis Thomas a member of a music group Kool & the Gang. In 1984, Thomas was crowned Miss Talented Teen New Jersey and the following year she competed in the international pageant and won the title of International Queen. Thomas made her acting debut in 1988 playing the role Justine Phillips, the girlfriend of Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show. In 1993, she won the role of Steve Urkel’s girlfriend Myra Monkhouse on the long-running sitcom Family Matters. After the cancellation of Family Matters, Thomas joined the cast of the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless. Thomas played the role Callie Rogers Stark for one year.

    Where she at? Many of the the “Where they at?” subjects end up fading from the major spotlight but still go on to have decent careers. Sadly, Michelle never had the chance. In 1997, Thomas was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer. After a long battle, Thomas died surrounded by her family and friends in at Manhattan’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center at the age of 30.
