  1. This is sad. Last I saw her she was gleaming about her record label. I hope she is at peace. Folks have been directing anger at her so called celebrity friends for not donating or helping fund her fight against cervical cancer.

    1. brown,
      we dont know what happened. We dont know if her former costars even knew she had cancer, let alone was running out of money fighting it. The news was only made public last month. Hollywood is a big place. If the blogs and the local news werent reporting it…I logged on and donated when I heard, but I only heard by chance,,,

    2. yaeh ladies,
      it disturbs me that the money wasnt raised in a few days. That killer neighborhood watchman in Fl received hundreds of thousands on his website for killing a Black boy, but a Black woman who entertained many of us for damn near 10yrs on tv received only pennies. wtf??

    3. I’m angrey and I guess its only normal to be angry. She was young, and this just came out of left field. IDK. One day they announce shes fighting for her life, next day shes gone.

      I hope she is at peace.

  3. Omg! This is so sad.
    I read online a few days ago about her having cervical cancer. And hoped she’d pull through and would be ok. Everything she starred in she was funny in. Loved her character on Moesha and The Parkers.

    Also liked her character on Friday lol.
