It's not clear when Owens' episodes of "The Haves and the Have Nots", a drama that's aired since 2013 and follows the intersection of the rich and the poor, will air. "Come join us!" adding, "I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs, The measure of a true artist". "Tell him that I'm going to have my team him because I hope he doesn't take it the wrong way", the star said.

Having appeared on a long list TV shows including The Blacklist, Divorce, and Lucifer after his role on The Cosby Show, Owens was basically making an honest living between gigs - yet he received flack for that.

After outlets reported on Owens' day job, many celebrities came to his defense. "I don't like the way that feels". "I just kind of did it on impulse and it was a bad impulse".

How fun was that? "I've hit hundreds of millions of putts with that thing". "I mean, Tony obviously is the guy right now". McIlroy had been a shot clear of Woods at nine-under par after 15 holes when Woods headed for the clubhouse.

A customer at Trader Joe's was surprised to notice the 57-year-old actor bagging groceries last month (Aug18), and shared her shock at his new career path in a post on social media, alongside a photo of Owens at the cash register. Not just for me, but for working people. So, that's a very, very generous thing for him to say. "I personally wanna donate, on behalf of Queen Radio, $25,000 to Geoffrey Owens today". It's a great story, and we're glad to see that he's getting back out there with a prominent role.

"Why you want to embarrass this hard-working man?" she asked, adding "Y'all don't know how hard it is to keep getting jobs...and you want to put somebody up on the fu**ing internet?" "I wanted a job that had some flexibility, so that if I did stay in (the) entertainment industry, if I could continue to audition and do jobs if I could, and Trader Joe's provided that". I didn't even think about it.

Owens said he was initially embarrassed about his picture hitting the web, but later grew proud thanks to the outpouring of support from fans and artistic peers.
