Brittany Rose Cole Stanis daughter of Hollywood celebrity Bern Nadette Stanis, known for her role as Thelma in the popular 70's sitcom “Good Times”, recently celebrated her 16th birthday at the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica with many friends and family and Inland Empire resident Jessica Reliford.

"I am so excited!" Brittany stated with a smile on her face as she greeted each one of her guests.

"She's been waiting for this moment for the last 16 years," stated her mother as she laughed and stood proudly watching her daughter shine.

While it is true that the 4 foot 11 inch Hollywood beauty is very petite she is no way small in personality. Like her mother she is a very warm, friendly, genuine and sincere person. Not only does she possess beauty and grace but the 10th grade honor roll student is very well eduacated sporting a 4.2 GPA to prove it.

"She wants to become a doctor and attend Duke University in Durham, NC but she also has a beautiful voice and she wants to become a singer as well,"stated her mother.

"When Brittany was eight years old Earnest Thomas hired Freda Payne as a character for a show called Black Love and Brittany watched Freda and imitated her moves. One day we hosted a Valentine’s Day special and Brittany came to me and said mommy I want to sing on the show. I didn't take her seriously at first. I thought she would be scared and would want to back out but she didn't. I'm the one that was nervous. She was not shy at all. I didn't have to push her or anything she did it all on her own. She sung L.O.V.E by Nat King Cole beautifully," recalls her mother.

When asked when can we expect to hear more about Brittany’s musical talent Bern Nadette replied "When she is ready, I'm going to help cultivate her talent and go from there."

Among celebrities that attended were Actor Earnest Thomas who portrays Mr. Ohmar on Everybody Hates Chris and best know for his character Raj on What’s Happening, Eric J. Chambers, Executive Producer and host of the Jazzspel Gospel show on the Word Network.

"Her party was awesome, One of the best I’ve been to. The Hello Kitty theme was really cool and all the decorations were very nice. I'm glad Brittany and I are friends. She is a very sweet person and we share the same goals of becoming a doctor so hopefully we can help each other out," replied Jessica Reliford
