CC | tv-14
Bernie Mac and Rhonda McCullough were high school sweethearts. Long before Def Comedy Jam put him on the map and The Bernie Mac Show made him a household name, Bernie was walking through the halls of school catching the eyes of his female classmates.

Here, Rhonda looks back at 1974, three years before she and Bernie got married, and recalls why it took her a while to warm up to the comedy superstar.
