More Information


Thea Vidale began her career doing stand-up comedy in comic clubs in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles. As an actress, she has also numerous guest appearances on sitcoms, including Ellen, The Wayans Bros., The Drew Carey Show, and My Wife and Kids. She is best known for her portrayal of “Thea” on the short-lived sitcom Thea.

Thea Vidale made her return to television on World Wrestling Entertainment’s January 2, 2006 edition of WWE RAW as Shelton Benjamin’s mother (aka “Momma”). Her character – that of a stereotypical, doting mother from the South – was at first unseen, as the unidentified person with whom the slumping Benjamin was having a telephone conversation with. During the next several weeks, Momma helped Benjamin obtain victories over such RAW Superstars as Viscera, Val Venis and Goldust. She had also been startled by a number of WWE wrestlers, including Eugene and Goldust, in skits that aired on RAW.
