On the show Sanford and Son. The real reason is the writers never wrote it of course. But I’m wondering, did they break up or just never say why?
Hamish says: July 27, 2009 at 3:23 am This is all I could find on Donna. They never said why. Donna Harris (Lynn Hamilton) is Fred's on-again, off-again girlfriend who later becomes his fiancée. She is employed as a practical nurse. Donna is an even-tempered lady who takes in stride Fred's shenanigans and occasional trysts. She also appears to be a bit more of an upper class individual in contrast to Fred's somewhat blunt, crude persona. Lamont, being the overprotecting son, detests Donna at first (infamously branding her as "The Barracuda"), but by Season 6 has completely warmed up to her. Like Lamont, Esther was mildly hostile to Donna, at first, but soon warmed up to her.
