Early life[edit] Peete was born in Mount Airy, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Dolores and Matt Robinson (the original Gordon on Sesame Street). Her mother was a school teacher, in public relations, and later a personal talent manager, and her father a producer/writer. She has an older brother named Matthew Thomas Robinson III. She attended Greene Street Friends School in nearby Germantown.[2] In 1974, her family moved to California.[3][4] Peete graduated from Santa Monica High School in Santa Monica, California, where her classmates included Rob Lowe. Peete graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a degree in psychology and French.[5] Peete studied abroad for a year at the Sorbonne, and is fluent in French.[5] While there she sang in Paris nightclubs, including a memorable performance with jazz legend Lionel Hampton at the Hotel Meridian Jazz Club.[6][7][8]


Career[edit] In 1969, she made her first television appearance by playing a little girl named Sally on the very first episode of Sesame Street. She recalls that when she was six years old, she kept blowing her line, saying "Hi, Daddy", instead of "Hi, Gordon", his character's name. She ended up with just an appearance where she walked down the street with Big Bird.[9] At the age of 11, Holly worked for the children's show Kidsworld as a celebrity correspondent; she interviewed many actors and actresses for the program. As an actress, she has appeared on the TV series 21 Jump Street (1987–1991), Hangin' with Mr. Cooper (1992–1997), For Your Love (1998–2002), and Like Family (2003–2004). She was featured in the video for the 1990 hit single "Whip Appeal" by Babyface as the sultry radio host at the beginning of the video.[10] In 1992 she portrayed Diana Ross in The Jacksons: An American Dream. Robinson most recently starred on the UPN comedy Love, Inc.. The show lasted just one season, and was canceled after the WB/UPN merger. Robinson has also had a limited career as a singer and recording artist, including the introductory song to 21 Jump Street.[9] She contributed a variety of songs to the soundtrack of the film Howard the Duck. (She appeared as a musician/singer in a minor role in the film.) She recorded the theme song "We Got Our Love" for the 1988 film Three for the Road. She and Dawnn Lewis, along with R&B quartet En Vogue, performed the theme song for the first season of Hangin' with Mr. Cooper. In 2006, she won, along with fellow writer Daniel Paisner, the Quills Award in Sports for the book Get Your Own Damn Beer, I'm Watching the Game!: A Woman's Guide to Loving Pro Football[11]. Peete and her daughter Ryan Elizabeth co-wrote a children's book My Brother Charlie, which was released in March 2010.[citation needed] In 2010, she participated in The Celebrity Apprentice 3, playing for her own charity, the HollyRod Foundation,[9] which provides support for families with Parkinson's disease or autism. She set an "Apprentice" record for the most money made on a single task, and finished as the runner-up to winner Bret Michaels.[citation needed] Robinson began co-hosting The Talk, a CBS daytime talk show, on October 18, 2010.[12] In this forum, Robinson was known for expressing herself through her ethnicity and being especially vocal about African American issues and, since her son Rodney is affected by it, autism.[13] In April 2011, Robinson hosted a weekly series on The Talk promoting autism awareness.[14] After serving on The Talk for its first season, Robinson along with Leah Remini were released from the show. Failure to ever disclose why the two were let go brought on a great deal of audience criticism of the show, as well as protests from the stars' fans.[15][16] Robinson hosted the 42nd NAACP Image Awards, alongside Wayne Brady, on March 4, 2011.[17] The Peete family star in a reality TV series on OWN, entitled For Peete's Sake.[18] The series follows the lives of Peete and her husband Rodney as they juggle career choices with their family life.[19] In 2018, Peete played the lead role in a Hallmark Movies and Mysteries movie based on the Morning Show Murders book written by Al Roker.


Personal life[edit] Holly Robinson Peete with her husband Rodney Peete in 2010 On June 10, 1995, Robinson married Rodney Peete, a National Football League quarterback. He proposed by surprising Holly during an episode of Hangin' with Mr. Cooper. Together, they have four children: daughter Ryan, son Rodney, Jr. (twins born in 1997), son Robinson (born 2002), and son Roman (born 2005). Rodney Jr. was diagnosed with autism at age 3.[20] After her father was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, Robinson and her husband co-founded the HollyRod Foundation, which is dedicated to help find a cure for the disease, as well as for autism, and assist those living with the conditions.[9][21] In September 2012, Nestle's Carnation Breakfast Essentials announced they had teamed up with Robinson, featuring her as the spokesperson for the brand.[22][23] On October 4, 2012, Robinson was inducted as an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.[24]
