Alfonso Ribeiro's dance (the Carlton dance) resulted from him dancing to Tom Jones' It's Not Unusual song in that series. Unfortunately, the US Copyright Office denied him copyright to his tap dance in 2019.

Angela eventually liked the dinner because of his sense of humor. After several dates, Lincoln also managed to change her mind about dating a showbiz star.
The couple got married three months after their engagement. Their wedding was on 13th October 2012 at the Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank, California.

I get things and looks and comments constantly... I'm never going to be white, and I'm never going to be fully supported in the Black house.
The actor added:
So I'm in my own little world with support from almost no one...
