Awww congrats to her. She was my favourite character on Scrubs. And I totally agree with the other posters – no way does she look 41.

Congrats to her! I like her on scrubs too.

MZ, where did you see that she’s leaving Scrubs? It won’t be the same without Carla. :o(

Judy Reyes wasn’t on Oz. I think the writer is confusing her with another actress, Lauren Velez. Anyway, it’s wonderful news for Judy. Much health and happiness to her and boyfriend.


She was on Oz as Tina from 1999-2002.

Congrats to her and her bf!

On Oz she played the wife of the correction officer that was blinded… it was only a couple of eps that spanned 3 seasons…if that helps any of the OZ viewers!
