Let’s see what we know so far of the bold and beautiful Roz.




67-year-old Roz has been married twice and unfortunately, divorced twice. Not much is known about her first marriage or her first husband. She was married when she was young and it must have been tough to go through a divorce not long after.

But in an interview, Roz revealed that she never took her past and her actions as a failure. For this confident woman, failure doesn’t exist- only lessons do.

Even from her failed marriage, she must have gained an experience of a lifetime.

After being able to move on with her life after her first marriage, she married again. Her second husband was Kenneth Showers. And with her second husband, she has two children. However, even her second marriage couldn't last 'forever' as she divorced again. Currently, the 'Pride and Glory' star is single.




With her marriage to Showers, Roz became the proud mother of two daughters. Her daughters are named Denise and Melissa. As of 2016, Roz is already a grandmother to four grandchildren from her adult daughters.

Roz resides in Westchester County, New York.




After serving in the industry for 35 years, Roz retired in 2010. After her stint in TV media, she has been active as a mentor and philanthropist.

And it might come as a shock, but Roz has also made appearances in several movies. She was also an actress, known for War of the Worlds (2005), Pride and Glory (2008) and ABC Afterschool Specials (1972).

Roz Abrams remains to be an inspiration even at the age of 67. And many fans still would love to see her on their TV screens again.
