While talking about metal in the non-MacGyver related topics, I mentioned Wendy O. Williams (Big Mama) who used to be a real hardcore singer back in the 80's. Maybe one of the most radical and controversial singers of her day. She lived a very rough life with several arrests. Interesting is that her schoolteachers and friends remember her as a shy and pretty girl who spoke so softely you could barely hear her. Hard to believe that that girl would later bark 'Hand it over!' with a roaring 'Nnnnnnnooooooooowwwwwwww!' In her later life she hovered into the adult industry for a few years before going solo in the 80's. By the 90's she retired from singing shortly after her appearance on MacGyver and started to care for animals and helping wild life rehabilitate and become a food activist because she was fed up with dealing with people. In her last five years, she attempted suicide more than once and in 1998, she killed herself, unfortunately.

You can read her story here.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

Very sad. More sadly, i did not actually know of her.

Neither did I, I just know her as Big Mama.

Have you never seen Harry's Will?
