American actress, 4' 11" and portly. She started out as a singer in jazz-blues shouter-tradition. She sang in New York cabarets and off-Broadway reviews in the early '70s, scoring her first major success in the hit Broadway musical "Ain't Misbehavin'." The show, based on the music of Fats Waller, won a Tony award, 1978.

Carter started her TV career with appearances on "Today" and on guest shots before landing a role in the daytime soap "Ryan's Hope," 1979. She moved into prime time with the comedy "Lobo," 1980 and the following year took the role of the boisterous black housekeeper in "Gimme a Break," where she hit the jackpot of stardom.

On January 23, 2003, at age 54, she collapsed and died in her Beverly Hills home and was found by one of her adopted sons, age 13. She suffered from diabetes and had had two brain aneurysms in 1992
