Tempestt Bledsoe spent her childhood in Chicago, where she attended elementary and high school. She was raised by her parents, who unfortunately decided to divorce. Tempestt showed her acting talents as early as the age of four, and she started to earn money when she signed a contract for taking a part in Safeway grocery stores’ and Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes’ commercials as a child actress, also singing jingles for these commercials. After high school, she became a student at the Stern School of Business, the University of New York, from which she graduated with a BA degree in Finance, however, she has never really been interested in that as a career, so she continued her acting.

The first big opportunity for her to become a professional actress came in 1984 when she was 9 years old, by making her debut appearance in the TV series called “The Cosby Show”, about one African American family, in the role of one of their children, Vanessa Huxtable. The show was created by Bill Cosby and aired on the NBC channel. It was very successful and brought her enormous popularity all over the world, and she was ranked the 51st on the list of the 100 Greatest Kid Stars by VH1. The final season was aired in 1992. Thanks to the show her career took-off, and so her net worth began increasing.

After the last episode of “The Cosby Show”, 19-year-old Tempestt Bledsoe moved to Los Angeles and started her own talk show, called “TheTempestt Bledsoe Show”. The show was short-lived, but she didn’t give up, and decided to try herself as a host one more time in 2010 in the Style Network’s “Clean House”, and her net worth has been growing since.

In addition to her acting career, the actress has also had roles in many movies and TV series. She had a small role as Grace Williams in the TV series “ABC After School Specials” (1986). In 1988, she appeared in the movie entitled “Dance ‘Til Dawn” starring Christina Applegate. Since 1997 Tempestt has had appearances in numerous TV series, including “The Practice” in the role of Roberta Baylor, “The Parkers” as Neena Davis, “Rock Me, Baby” playing Chloe, “South Of Nowhere” starring Cecily, “Raising The Bar” in the role of Camilla Hansen, “The Replacements” as Claudia, and as Marny in “Guys With Kids”. All these roles added steadily to Tempestt’s net worth.

Furthermore to her successful acting career, Tempestt Bledsoe showed her skills in one of the most popular animated movies entitled “ParaNorman” from 2012, in which she gave her voice to character named Sheriff Hooper. Her latest venture in the acting industry is an appearance in the TV series “Instant Mom” (2014), in which she portrayed the older Vanessa Huxtable from “The Cosby Show”. This also contributed to her wealth

Regarding her personal life, Tempestt has been in a relationship with Darryl M. Bell, an actor, for more than 20 years. Currently, there is little other information in the media about her private life.
