Both of their daughters are rinsed with the fame, as Rae is an actress known for her role in 1985's The Color Purple and Robbi is a former Canadian actress.

Married and divorced thrice, Rae shares a child with first husband, Owen Baylis. Between 1988 and 1990, she shared marital ties with C. Thomas Howell, her second husband. For three years, from 2011 to 2014, she and Nathan Ulrich enjoyed life as a married couple.

However, Rae is not the blood-related daughter of Maxine. It has come to notice that Tommy was involved in a relationship with a woman named Gail Toulson while still being married to Maxine. Gail then gave birth to Tommy's first child Rae.

Maxine, along with Tommy, battled for legal custody of parental rights of Rae with Gail.

Although Gail claimed herself as the mother of his daughter, Tommy fought for the legal custody of his child and won it in their favor. Gail, age 17 that time, lost the court case only for being underage.

However, Rae was only 12 when she realized that Maxine isn't her mother by birth. Talking about how she ended up being with Maxine back in 1982, Rae said,

“He brought Maxine this baby and said, ‘Look, this is what I did when I was away.’ Maxine took me in. Then she and Tommy had their own daughter, Robbi [now 18 and a model], and we grew up together in L.A.”

Despite staying together for a decade and raising two daughters together, Maxine and Tommy parted ways in 1970; probably due to infidelities issues.

Apart from her relationship with her ex-husband Tommy, Maxine's dating history remains murky. But her comedian ex-husband got married to comedian Shelby Chong in 1975 and went on to bear three children - Paris, Precious, and Gibran - with his second wife.
