All tag results for family matters
We guess all those years of being tormented by the girl next door, Laura Winslow, really had an affect on him.
Steve Urkel Stefan Urquelle Jaleel White is FINALLY emerging from the shadow cast over him by the iconic nerd he played in the hit 90's sitcom Family Matters and is directing his own romantic comedy!
In a recent Vanity Fair interview, the actor discusses his past role as America's favorite geek, what he's been doing since, and what he's got in store for us in the future.
It turns out, the future may be brighter for Jaleel than anybody ever gave him credit as he teased with words about a feature film he will be directing, saying:
Although former Family Matters star Darius McCrary has been accused of attacking his ex wife with a belt, the actor claims it is untrue.
He said that his ex Karrine Steffans "didn't take the finality of the divorce well and has resorted to her old tricks of public defamation."
Darius added that "in no way does he condone anyone resorting to violence against another human being to solve a problem."
Meanwhile, she filed for a permanent restraining order against him.
A hearing is set for next week.

It's bad enough to be so violent, but to do it in front of an impressionable 12-year-old just takes things to a whole new level!
Darius McCrary, best known for playing Eddie Winslow on Family Matters, has been temporarily ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from his ex-wife after allegedly ruthlessly attacking her not once, but twice in the past year.
Back in February, Karrine Steffans accused Darius of choking her "from behind" and beating her with a belt during a heated argument. Making things worse, Karrine also claims that her 12-year-old son was witness to the attack! Horrible!
But it gets worse!
Karrine claims Darius attacked her again in November while at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in L.A. Allegedly, Darius shoved her into a car and began to choke her again in front of a large crowd of people.
Because of these incidents, Karrine had been given the temporary restraining order, but she has scheduled another court appearance to ask for it to become permanent.
Yeah, we think its best that the two of them stay far away from each other.

We are NOT happy to hear that this is still a problem over 2 years later!
Back in 2008, Karrine "Superhead" Steffans texted us, claiming that her boyfriend, Family Matters' Darius McCrary (Eddie Winslow) tried to run her over with his car, and that she was involved in an abusive relationship with him.
We're very sad to hear that it looks like her situation STILL hasn't improved.
Here's what she said about her abusive relationship on her website:
I’ve been a victim of abuse all my life –– literally, for as long as I can remember. It is my norm. Whereas most people would run in the other direction the moment someone physically, emotionally, or mentally abuses them –– I stay.
It’s a sickness and just when I think I am cured, the cancer spreads.
For the past several years, I have been involved in a highly abusive relationship. I have been choked, whipped with belts, thrown about, berated, belittled, raped, and disregarded as a human being. I have been abandoned and embarrassed, then, loved and coddled.
I have been caught in a vicious cycle and have left on many occasions, just to return.
I have found little support from my friends and family because I complain, and I cry, then I go back for more. I go back knowing that, one day, he’ll kill me but he’s all I have. He’s the only one who understands because he’s stuck in this cycle, too.
When I try to confide in friends they ask, “Well, what did you do to him? What did you say to him?” They tell me, “You know how he is, he’s never going to change, so why do you stay? You know what you’re getting into. Don’t tell anyone because he’ll come out looking good and you’ll only make yourself look bad.” It’s always my fault.
No one understands – not even me.
So, I keep it all to myself and it continues. Then, we make up and vow it will never happen again –– then it does and I feel so foolish for ever believing he can change or that we can change. Then, I begin to believe again. I believe even now.
I love him though it pains me to admit. It sickens me to know that I will return to him in an instant and that the next time could be the last time and that breath, my last breath.
Still, I hold out hope that one day we’ll learn how to love one another without pain. I pray that those who look on with smirks and judgments know one thing –– domestic violence is very real and, at times, very final.
If you, or someone you know, has been a victim of domestic violence, please contact the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at (800) 799-7233.
This is really upsetting. We hope this will gain even more attention this time, and authorities will take action.
Stay strong, bb! Our thoughts are with you.
