Tichina Arnold


Date Of Birth

June 28, 1971


Tichina Arnold previously appeared on the TV series Ryan's Hope, Law & Order and All My Children, to name a few. She has also managed to grace the movie industry as she starred in the movie Big Momma's House, Dancing in September and The Little Shop of Horrors. This eventually led into the famous role as Rochelle in Everybody Hates Chris which won her a NAACP award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series.

As Rochelle, the mother of Chris Rock, she can be very aggressive and demanding. She exudes a tyrannical household but holds the best interest of her family at heart. Usually a socialite wannabe, she struggles to have a trendy-sophisticated lifestyle while she manages her family's budget.

Since the show ended in 2009, Arnold has been seen on shows like Brothers and Raising Hope. She later landed the role of Judi in the 2011 sitcom Happily Divorced, starring Fran Drescher and John Michael Higgins.
