OMG! After “ComingToAmerica” U Will NOT Believe Where This Actor Ended Up

Posted On : August 3, 2016

Remember the royal wedding scene in “Coming To America” when “Prince Akeem” (Eddie Murphy) was about to marry the woman his dad (James Earl Jones) chose as his bride (Vanessa Bell Calloway)? If you remember that, then you also remember the tall ‘woman’ who barged through the crowd first, to announce the bride. “Akeem” was about to pass out when he thought ‘she’ was his new bride, LOL. That ‘woman’ was actor, Billi Gordon, and he has been through a LOT of ups and downs in his life, but to see where he is now is amazing…

FROM 700 POUNDS TO AN ENTIRELY UNEXPECTED CAREER NOW

Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 12.23.32 PM Before we tell you where Billi Gordon ended up AFTER "Coming To America," we'll first feel you in on where he came from...

Gordon revealed that he was severely addicted to a weight loss drug in the 80's and then he moved from his home state of Michigan, to Los Angeles to sober up, but fell into a life of prostitution:
Via L.A. Times- 'His [Gordon's] life in Los Angeles, as he tells it, was tumultuous. He worked as an escort, a male prostitute, a female prostitute -- in that order. It wasn't until the mid-80s that he discovered his talent for comic writing and performing as a woman.'
BUT WAIT TIL U SEE WHAT HE DOES FOR A LIVING NOW>>>
