Actress Tichina Arnold has been around for quite some time in the industry. Playing her first role in Hollywood in 1986 in the cult classic Little Shop of Horrors, Arnold was only 17 years old. With a vast array of experience and credits, it’s probably best to conclude that Arnold is best known for her character, Pam on the hit sitcom Martin.

On Saturday, Arnold stars alongside “Whoopi Goldberg, Anika Noni Rose, Mekhi Phifer, Kimberly Elise and Ving Rhames in Lifetime’s adaptation of Terry McMillan’s novel A Day Late and a Dollar Short.

Let’s face it – no matter what role Arnold plays, she will always be remembered for her sassy role on Martin who had a love/hate friendship with Gina’s man. Without a doubt, she played that role so well that anyone who watched the show will never forget her.

There had been talks about a possible Martin reunion. Can you imagine that for a moment? All of the characters back on television – Martin, Gina, Pam, Tommy, and Cole. Oh, we can’t forget all of the many roles Martin Lawrence played in the sitcom, aka Mama Payne, Roscoe, and Sheneneh.

In an interview with theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon, Arnold was asked about a possible reunion. She stated, “Martin called and was like ‘how can we put it together?’ I think it kind of just fell [by] the wayside. I think everything happens for a reason. A lot of people ask us, is there gonna be a Martin reunion? I think if we possibly do a Martin reunion it may not be as funny. You want to end on top… all good things must come to an end.”

There you have it – it doesn’t look like there’s going to be a reunion.

Make sure you check out Arnold in A Day Late and a Dollar Short which premiers Saturday at 8/7 central on Lifetime.

    O MAN THAT WOULD BE GREAT IF THEY COULD BRING BACK THAT MAGIC. I REMEMBER ON SUNDAYS WOULD BE LIKE A FRIDAY NIGHT. MY PEOPLES WOULD CALL AROUND TO SEE WHERE WOULD WATCH ‘MARTIN’. IT WAS ‘IN LIVING COLOR’ 1ST, THEN ‘MARTIN’. ERRBODY’S GROWN UP NOW. ALL THAT SHIT THEY WENT THROUGH AT THE VERY END, DROP AND KICK THAT ‘Y’ALL’, AND BRING THAT MAGIC BACK, SO WE CAN HAVE SOMETHING TO DO ON SUNDAYS. LET’S GET RID OF THESE REALTY SHOWS, AND BRING BACK COMEDY AT IT’S VERY BEST…….I SAY BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You guys need to quit. We can’t turn on the T.V. without seeing the reruns. There were so many great episodes.
    If they got together for a reunion it would be impossible for them to match the level of humor that they once brought. LET IT GO !!!

    Loved Martin!… Loved it!…. Loved it!… Loved it!…..
    Could not believe how it ended though. Or the way it ended. I think Tisha Campbell sent out some conflicting messages with her character to Martin, because they were all so lovey-dovey on the show. You got the feeling that they really were an item with all the intimacy that was put on display… The two of them so often sharing the same bed…the hugging & the kissing….the ooh baby’s….etc…etc… I remember an episode where they had even made a sex tape together. As a man I guess Martin couldn’t help but to feel there was something there. He most likely wanted to see it in real life as well. Tisha Campbell is guilty of playing her role too well. This sent out mixed signals you can’t really blame Martin for that. I hated to see this show go and really would not mind a reunion. I think it would do very well in the ratings especially with all of the re-runs on tv today. Plus with all the negative reality shows on nowadays like the Porche Stewart/Kenya Moore incident that just took place on a “reunion” show -WHY TF NOT???… It couldn’t get much worse.
