it also looks like carole(cookie) was nat king coles niece thru marriage...not really a cole.
 
this shyt is confusing tho...they always made shyt so complicated...ugghhhh
 
carole/cookie (clarks bio mother) and natalie were cousins.  timmie (clarks friend from college) is natialies MUCH younger sister.  maria (nats wife, natalie/timmies mother, carole/cookies maternal aunt ) attempted to keep them all at odds...she was a trip...terrible.
 
oh and clark is biracial...

Carole had grown up close to her younger sister Natalie, who went on to become a major star. Timmie and Casey, much younger, had grown up at a remove that was more than a matter of relative ages. Maria, a difficult woman who demanded absolute control, liked to keep her children apart and at odds.

 
Timmie would later admit that she suspected the truth about Clarke and had confided in her own mother, who had kept what she knew from Carole. It was to her friend that Clarke first reached out, getting Carole’s number under a ruse. Then she made the call.

 

 There were ups and downs in their relationship, and disclosures. Cookie told her that her biological father was a white Jewish man she met in college and never told about the pregnancy. While her adopted parents knew this fact, they lied and told her that her biological father was black. While Clarke was at first furious, she accepted that her parents wanted to spare her the stigma of being raised biracial in a more punishing era.

y it was quite convoluted.

I bet a lot of families have those twists and turns in them. Old family secrets.,,
