where is frieda fonda?

i was a big fan of T.O.D.A.S., a local 80's program which featured a great line of comedic talents like joey de leon, val sotto, jimmy santos, spanky rigor, richie d'horsey, maribeth bichara, and frieda fonda.


frieda fonda was my favorite and she never failed to make me laugh, especially whenever she's bullied by val, jimmy, and joey. she doesn't talk that much, which is kind of unusual for a comedienne, and i also even remember her husky voice. but she makes this facial expression where she would look really surprised, and open both her eyes and mouth wide open. it was so funny, i could not even describe it.


local tv station, ibc channel 13, used to air a program called "retro tv" (are they still on air?). they've featured 80's programs like "champoy," "john en marsha," and "T.O.D.A.S." i liked watching that program and it brings a lot of good old sweet memories. i've been trying to google the internet, searching for information about frieda fonda's whereabout. i wasn't that successful, not until today.


frieda fonda is now DR. frieda v. brookshire, an aesthetics specialist. she earned her doctor of dental surgery degree at loma linda university school of dentistry in california and received her master of science degree in prosthodontics at the marquette university school of dentistry graduate school, in milwaukee, wisconsin.

TRIVIA QUESTION: what does T.O.D.A.S. stand for?

Totally Outrageous, Delightful All-Star Show! Yeah I remember Frieda Fonda too. They once did a stint on Superman and she was Lois Lane. Nakakatawa yung episode na yun. It must have stuck in my mind because Superman was showing that time and it was really a huge hit back then.

Good to know Frieda Fonda did well for herself. Our other actors and actresses didn't fare so well after their showbiz life.

She was my class mate in 3rd year high school at UE Manila.

Trivia: What was her real family name?

Hint: She's half German.

I wonder whatever happened to Paul...
