It saddens our hearts to hear that Yvette Wilson, the blunt and fun-loving actress who played “Andell” on Moesha and The Parkers fame, has lost her battle with Stage 4 cervical cancer.
The L.A. native and comic passed on Thursday at the age of 48.
Wilson lived in Hollywood and managed a music label and dwelt in real estate in her last years.
She got her first break on the T.V. show Thea and also made appearances in the House Party movies, Friday and Def Comedy Jam.
Wilson had also suffered kidney failure and was in need of a transplant.
She was also an avid supporter of the Cancer Sucks fund.
Her good friend Shar Jackson expressed her grief on Twitter saying,
“F— Cancer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! … Oh god….. My heart is soooo unbelievably broken ….”.
“I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home.”
Brandy Norwood tweeted,
