She didn't work,lived off her husband,Didn't cook or clean,Chilled in the lower-class neighborhood,spent money she didn't have,Borrowed things and never paid back,Always dressed to impress on others dime and was proud of it. Katey Sagal played Peggy Bundle from 1987 to 1997 and changed the way people looked at housewives.

Or just maybe she showed what housewives was really doing at that time. Sense the show started, it was a must see in our black household til the last show. I went to a taping of the show in '95' and not even The Cosby Show didn't make my father laugh like The Bundys did. And it is not talked about much, a show which was co-created by Ron Leavitt an African-American from NY always made the Top Ten in most watched Black TV Shows back in the 90's, rite after Blossom-Which mite only made the list because it came on rite after The Fresh Prince during that time.

I see this lifestyle celebrated so much in the hood these days,when there was a time a woman would be shamed for acting like that. But today it's almost normal. And what is surprising to me is I'm seeing it more and more in white women too. Hair,nails,clothes, jewelry, and no money....But FABULOUS!

I loved her!!!

My mother forbade me from watch that show. I had to sneak around to watch it b/c if she heard the theme music, I'd be in trouble.

the bundys were white trash but see, with white trash tend lean towards being broke and not really looking like much.They just wollow in it. But with Black People I don't care how broke we are we gonna look good in the hood. We gonna get out toys any kinda way we can. And the Bundy's kinda was like that. They didn't have money for food but Peb,Kelly,and even Bud looked good. I always believed Bud and Kelly had to stole clothes cause they always dressed down. We all know Peggy just spent Al's money.lol

Um what? The Bundys looked good? Al didn't have any money. He was a shoe salesman. I think you might have a different perception of what ghetto fabulous is.

LOL I like the episodes with Griff and Marcy in 'em--those were my favorite characters. I used to LOVE the show, but my dad would lecture me about watching it because it was so misogynistic! I, too, like how they used to call Bud everything but what he told them to. Dishwasher B, Buttwiper B, Gaspasser B...

What I want to know is how Al could afford a family selling shoes. He must have been a manager, but he still couldn't have made that much. Peggy said he got paid in pesos, LOL.
