Celebrities Mourn Comic Yvette Wilson; Support her Funeral Arrangements

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,

So saddened by the loss of Yvette Wilson. She was such a beautiful spirit. May she rest in peace.

Ray J tweeted,

Sheryl Lee Ralph tweeted,

    It saddened me when I seen the tribute to Yvette Wilson. I had no idea that she was sick. I will miss her greatly. She was a very funny actress. Very bold and she had a sharp tongue. I watch The Parkers daily as well as Moesha on Saturdays. You will be truly missed Yvette. RIP!!!! Deidre

    I actually found out while I was at school that she had passed. I was in a computer lab working on something when a classmate made a reference to an actress from Moesha that died. I asked who, I was told Yvette Wilson. It’s sad, b/c just two days before finding out I was reading about her on Wikipedia and trying to find some info on her since I had not heard much from her since the ending of the Parkers.
