Gloria Reuben

Losing Tina Turner today was painful and I went down a rabbit hole of YouTube videos and it reminded me that Gloria Reuben walked away from ER at the height of its popularity to be a backup singer for Tina. Who would do that??

Gloria Reuben apparently. I love that she said, OK, I’ve been nominated for Emmy’s on the #1 show on tv. Imma take a little break now and go be backup singer for Tina Turner! That took courage and could have been the end of her acting career. But she managed to come back and still get good roles.

She’s not given nearly the sort of work that she deserves these days, but I admire her for following her dreams.

I’d like to see her in more things.

I thought about Gloria Rueben today , also! It was such a big deal when she left ER to go on tour with Tina T. Her career never really came back from that, did it? …. A few years ago I took a dive and watched ER from start to finish. Since by the the final season there were so few characters left from the beginning - they did something very clever and true to life. Gloria’s HIV positive character Jeannie was passing back through town and had to stop back into the ER where she used to work. No one recognized her and all of the old characters who she asked for had long since left the show.
