Yvette Wilson of 'Moesha,' 'The Parkers' dies
Actress and comedian Yvette Wilson has lost her fight against cervical cancer at the age of 48, CNN's confirmed. A friend of Wilson, Jeffrey Pittle, tells us that she passed away on Thursday around 7 p.m.
Wilson was perhaps best known for portraying Andell Wilkerson on the '90s sitcom "Moesha," on which she starred alongside singer Brandy in the titular role. She also played Andell on the "Moesha" spin-off "The Parkers," which also starred Oscar winner Mo'Nique and aired from 1999 to 2004.
Wilson's "Moesha" co-star Shar Jackson, who's also appeared on reality shows "Ex Wives Club" and "Celebrity Fit Club," mourned the loss of Wilson on Twitter Thursday.
"Oh God. My heart is soooo unbelievably broken," she posted. "I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but God has chosen to take my sister Yvette home."
"Moesha" star Brandy and her brother Ray J, who also appeared on the series, also shared their condolences.
"Yvette Wilson was one of the most genuine and funny people I've ever met," Ray J said in a statement. "The advice she gave me as a young actor to work hard and to believe in myself was very instrumental. She will truly be missed."
Added Brandy via her Twitter account, "So saddened by the loss of Yvette Wilson. She was such a beautiful spirit. May she rest in peace."

Helpful info. Lucky me I discovered your site unintentionally, and I am stunned why this twist of fate did not took place in advance! I bookmarked it.
I'm now not certain the place you are getting your information, however good topic. I must spend some time studying more or working out more. Thanks for magnificent info I was looking for this information for my mission.
To the family of yvette wilson may God see you through this hard time and ppl be mindful of their mourning and please have respect
To the person who is disrespecting this page just disappear why are you on here you are stupid and ignorant
I just read this entire thread and came to the conclusion that JBStoner has no life other than typing racist comments that he thinks is funny. I'm still trying to figure out why he elected to click on this article if he has so much hate for african american people. I guess to stir up the pot and make some folks upset which he accomplished. What a LOSER. Anyway on another note Rest In Peace Yvette, you brought lots of lauph into my home. 🙂
This is really sad news. I've loved "The Parkers" for years because the show had such a talented cast. Furthermore, I could always count on having a few laughs. The news about Yvette Wilson's death is quite shocking. I have been a fan of hers since the '90's. She was an extremely funny woman with a very natural appeal on camera. Surely, we will miss the wit, charm and high-spirited personality that she shared with many. May she rest in peace.
It is actually a nice and helpful piece of info. I am satisfied that you shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
I dont understand why people bring race into everything. please do us a favor and open up your mind. It will take you a long way.
RIP Yvette-you will be missed
Another ignorant underachiever from the projects.
another ignorant response from a lonely soul.
Hey JB. Why don't you were your racism loud and proud and in public instead of hiding behind a keyboard like the true coward you are? Novel idea, eh?
I hope you get cancer and die of a very slowly and painful death....
JbStoner just shut the H*ll up your getting on my Freaking nerves
One day soon, JB Stoner, your words will come back to haunt you. God made us ALL, not just you. How dare you criticize and belittle God's creation. I fear for you. Satan, apparently is who you serve. God's followers are loving and not full of hatred. Hell awaits people like you.
You should be the poster child for birth control. Your picture could be under the words, "Don't let this happen to you!"
And in other news: rodney king is dead. Obama campaign has lost another voter. GOP 2012!!
WOW...Just readig some of your post, you are an idiot....You should be a GOP!!!! OBAMA 2012!!!
You will die one day, you know. Wonder what people will say about you!!! You will never know because you will be DEAD!!! Hell awaits.
Wow! Just saw her on an episode of the Parkers today. Had heard she was gravely ill, and wondered how she was doing. So sad! Such a funny, talented lady. Forty-eight is awfully young, but death knows no particular age to strike. May her suffering be over and her spirit find peace and joy. Condolences to her family!
Pablo the taco you must be a taco, rice and bean eating wet back that hid on a boat or in a truck to sneak to America. Now that's lame as he'll.
Rest in peace MS. Wilson! Love the show and all the cast. No more suffering.
Wow just heard about this....may u rest in peace Yvette (andel) u will be missed by many
R.I.P. Miss Yvette. You will truly be missed. <3
R.I.P. Yvette. You will truly be missed. <3
Thank you a lot for sharing this with all people you actually recognise what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Please additionally talk over with my site =). We could have a link alternate arrangement between us
Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest factor to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks think about worries that they plainly do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
What you been smokin'? That made no sense at all. Or maybe you're a terrorist communicating with your cell in coded messages?
Woah this blog is wonderful i really like reading your posts. Keep up the good work! You understand, many persons are looking around for this information, you could help them greatly.
I'll immediately seize your rss feed as I can not in finding your email subscription hyperlink or newsletter service. Do you've any? Kindly permit me know so that I could subscribe. Thanks.
That's sad... she was funny and entertaining. So now, three "Moesha" castmembers have passed: Yvette Wilson, Lamont Bentley and Merlin Santana.
I don't even understand how I stopped up right here, however I assumed this publish was once great. I don't recognize who you are but definitely you're going to a well-known blogger in the event you aren't already. Cheers!
Hello everyone, please don't get offended by the remarks that some people are saying negative towards blacks, President Obama, all black stars. Thats what he/she wants. Ignore the ignorance and put what you feel and let God take care of the rest. We don't have to justify who we vote for, what we are or anything else. The only person we have to answer to is God. When you feed into the enemies hand, that only give his/her more leverage to build up on. Just saying. God Bless you ALL!!
EXACTLY!!! GOD BLESS YOU
R.I.P. U Ran your race,The rest is in Gods hands right where u are. u wont be forgotten ,thanks for lots of laughts
I don't understand why every time a black person dies even children there are only racist comments and when a white person dies especially children there are only condolences. What does that say about the people making the racist comments and America as a whole.
cause, people are morons, and the united states has probably one of if not the most racist terrorist group there is (the Ku Klux Klan) Regardless Yvette R.I.P. you will be sincerely missed, and may your soul ignore every last racist who thinks its ok to be rude due to someone's race.
bc black people are lame
@ObamaPanders2All, u r so stupid u ignorant piece of trash. R.I.P. Yvette, God has taken another angel for his kingdom.
June 15, 2012 at 7:33 pm | Report abuse |
hey bozo....it's Hakuna Matata, ignoramus.....
cancer takes way to many of us these day... RIP and may GOD take you in his arms...
That's "...TOO many..."
And you're 1 TOO many!! Ppl hv NO RESPECT FOR THE DECEASED!!
G-Man if you are referring to me you need to read the racist comments of others before you say something to me. It hard not to be racist with ass holes out their. If you don't like it then oh well get over it because I will defend my race when two people get on here being so damn ignorant over the death of a talented beautiful black woman. They should have kept their racist comments to theirselves, they are only speaking because the cowards know we don't know who they are.
Praying God's comfort and peace to Yvette's family and friends. Thoroughly enjoyed her on both shows.
RIP Yvette...to the family be strong & keep the faith!!! All these haters & ignorant people there is a GOD and he is powerful than any MAN or THING!!!!!!!!!! So be nice with your comments.
or your chest. Either one.
One less Obama voter.
What a sad case of idiotic racism you are...
@ObamaPanders2All, u r so stupid u ignorant piece of trash. R.I.P. Yvette, God has taken another angel for his kingdom.
you are one sick puppy.one day you will be held accountable for your words.
That was tasteless and you should be ashame of yourself for saying that.
I tend to stay away from message boards for this very reason–ignorance, ugliness, hatred...from all angles, just disgusting! I don't care what the color of your skin is; which God you pray to (if any); whether your gay, straight, short, tall, skinny, overweight, green, half ape...I don't care. Every life has purpose and today, the world lost this woman to a horrible disease...one that I personally fought. I hope the family and friends of Yvette Wilson understand that the hate-filled comments on here are from people who were not taught common decency and respect for their fellow man. Shame. Rest peacefully, Ms. Wilson~
MY HEARTS AND PRAYERS GOES OUT TO THE FAMILY!! YOU WILL AWAYS BE MISS
RIP Yvette, you will be missed. I loved Moesha and the Parkers. As for you people leaving ignorant responses, you need to get a life. I mean some people dont think at all. This young woman died and you're leaving every message except the obvious relevant ones. Seems to me you have to much time on your hands. If you dont have anything nice to say, KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO YOURSELF. Because guess what, you dont know what may happen to YOU in the near future.
Jannet Jackson from the Friday!
one less black person on welfare
Yeah like on 9.1.1 there was over 3,000 less white dev.il destroying America. Ahh good times
Hoss, you are one of those KKK people wanting to pick up trash in Georgia.
Funny thing is that replacing litter with White Trash won't fly.
Go back into your hole with the rest of the maggots.
Truth be told, if you did your research there are more poor whites on welfare than blacks, and being that they are losing jobs just as fast as everyone else, there time is up!! There will be a new world order.
Uhh, this was a black person making far more money that you. Of course I have a feeling that's hardly unusual for you.
I'm African-American, own my own home , business and never been on welfare. So your logic just went down the toilet. Sorry I forgot, you were probably using your head (and not the one on your shoulders) when you wrote that gibberish.
Now you know why they say never assume...
@hoss or hog, u the one on welfare. Get off the pole and get a job. If u can't say something respectful don't say nothing at all.
according to goverment reports there are more white people on welfare.
that's because there are way more white people, period. It's Obama's fault so many are still out of work. When we get him out of the White House, the economy will improve so quick it will make your nappy head spin.
This is supposed to be about HONORING the deceased,Yvette Wilson!! How this turned into politics,hatred and racism,is beyond me!! Please RESPECT THE DECEASE N TAKE ANY OTHER COMMENTS ELSE WHERE!! R.I.PARADISE,YVETTE!! To her Family/Friends,turn to GOD so HE can comfort n love u thru this difficult time!! GOD WON'T EVER LET YA'LL DOWN!! PEACE,LOVE N BLESSINGS TO ALL!!
Something bad is going to happen to you. You won't even know what hit you. You will see.
Hey Tab – God also "don't like" thugs who can't spell. You've been warned.
I was in a dead pool and I picked the fat one, not the phat one. I lost.
Wren Posted on What about Bondo the stuff that paint and body guys use to fill in dents in cars. It sands down smooth as silk (or you car would look awful when it was riteenpad). It's easy to use, sort of like epoxy you have to mix 2 things, like epoxy, but I've used it successfully, so it can't be too hard. ;-)Are you wanting a set like Marie has in her kitchen in Everybody Loves Raymond?
I am disgusted by some of the crap I am reading..A woman died after a battle with cancer..that is sad..period..I was never a fan..and I am a life long Republican...what makes me sick the most is people saying "one less Obama supporter"...OMG...what..just because she is balck means she was a democrat...why do we lump the entire black race..isnt that stereo typing..I mean sure she was "probably" a democrat..but I know several black people that live near me that are republicans...people need to stop all the hate...stop all the stereotypes...and realize that even if she was a liberal..that was her right...this is america..
You know black republicans? How sad is that...
No sadder than people who vote democrat when the man they elected is a foreign-born socialist who hates capitalism and ignites class warfare when he himself is a 1-percenter!
I love her..she was so funny to me....and she was a comedian also......lovely person..
RIP, this is news just like it was news when the guy from Green Acres passed away. If you didn't know the lady or ever watch the show, then this story was not for you. We apologize if CNN is not savvy enough to only report stories that are relevant to you. However, there is no need for racist content, especially when someone has passed away.
please just shut your mouth you stupid idiot
The racist only benifit when you respond. Ignore ignorance. It will eventually dissapear when there's nothing to feed off of.
Craven You might "benefit" from the use of a spell checker. Just sayin'.
I loved her in "The Parkers," and still watch the reruns. Very talented lady who will be sorely missed.
She was a funny lady. Loved her in Friday. She also had a small role in Poetic Justice, which came on tv yesterday. And her character was hillarious on both Moesha and The Parkers. God rest her soul!!! And ladies get your paps every year...dispite doctors now saying we should only get them every 3 years....as long as insurance is paying, get them every year!!!
I THOUGHT THIS WAS FOR SOMEONE THAT HAS PASSED AWAY BUT I SEE MORE RACIST COMMENTS THAN ANYTHING & THAT IS SAD. R.I.P MISS LADY...
I will be so glad when CNN finally decides to do away with the comments section of their articles. Very little good comes from having it here and it really serves as nothing but a venue for hate-filled, misogynistic and racist mutts to spew their pointless vitriol from behind the safety or anonymity.
I thought CNN learned its lesson years ago when they did away with the community message boards. Guess not.
I didn't even have to read the other comments to know what is there. You are so right. It's all hate.
Then you must have ESP. Especially Salty Pork rinds
Yes it is news, and while I did not know the woman she was a wondeful comedian and good small time actor. I hope people are as nasty and flippant as most of you holes when you die.
I have literally just heard of this show today. It looks terrible. Still, sucks that she's dead I guess.
this is news????
Yes, it's news. Her work reached thousands of appreciative fans. What have you ever done, besides slam people you don't know a thing about?
WELL OF COURSE. Some of us like that Tyler Perry hate filled stuff.
House of Payne:
Dana: "Well at least I am half black"
Robber: "Well I'll shoot the other half"
Audience whoops it up.
i love you tom!
One less Obama Supporter.
when you die it will be one less racist in the world
You're a complete POS.
You should be ashamed of yourself, lets see how it feels when you loose a loved one and you will shortly!
Do you live in a trailer park? I assume that you do....
You're a POS.. A racist POS.
Obama don't need no supporter, cuz Jesse Jackson cut his nuts off!
You are horrible.
I'm praying for you NOW haankzmith
i cant belive she gone i found out today on b.e.t news, and she played on friday
as well r.i.p andle
We as People need to appreciate life more often and Thank the Lord frequently for this beautiful Life he has provided for mankind. All we do is find the wrong, bad and indifference in each other – yet we refuse to look at our GLASS HOUSES.
The Lord forgives us all – but one thing for sure we must account before we leave. Amen!
My condolences to the Wilson family and also the Parker family. Andell was a great asset and I will miss her sweet smile and all the laughs on the Parkers. R.I.P. Thank you for your time here on earth.
But some are missed more than others – case in point – your dumb post.
And I hope you do real soon.
What a moronic statement. your as dumb as a BUFFALO!
to everyone who keeps crying over hateful words and using god as backlash,you obviously are as fake as your god. and if you are a hard believer,she would be someone you'd be glad to be gone. do some reading and quit picking which parts to believe in the bible.
how sad for you to be so hateful and to use your God and religion as an excuse to act in such a manner.
Well, lets see what you say when our God codemns your ass to hell where you belong
You're a fake as a human being. Or, maybe you're just trailer park trash out trolling for lack of anything better to do.
I'm more appauled at the horrific grammar and syntax of repondents. Is this what passes as intelligent thought now-a-days?
You are apparently not "appauled" by bad spelling!
It's spelled nowadays geniass. Leave it to the dummy to try correct people's spelling. You be dumb.
This is what happens when people hide behind their computers. Bet a lot of the negative, hurtful comments would not even be whispered in a group of mixed or even same company. I wonder how many of you would want your friends, co-workers and/or loved ones to know how you really feel. Just saying.......
I take it you meant "respondents" instead of "repondents?" Alrighty then ...
Three misspellings in a rant about other people's grammar... Hopefully, all these ignorant posts are just coming from other uneducated losers such as yourself.
I am so shocked i liked her, my sympathy and prayers go out to the family stay strong she is an angel now.
RIP YVETTE may GOD be with your family. watched both shows backin the day luv them both.
And que the white devils and their evil comments. Please disregard these negative comment majority of white people don't have soul so they don't care about any other race unless they are white.
Hard to beat your hatemongering whatever your race may be.
Really? LOL, apparently you are just as ignorant as your comment.
Maybe your the racist. "white devil" is a racist term and you used it so I guess your just as racist as the people of whom your speaking of so don't think your any better.
racism goes every way and is used by every race. don't call people white devils and then be disgusted if they shower you with racist remarks. how about everyone just get along??????
HI KELLEE I'M A BLACK MALE 31 BUT I KNOW YOU DON'T CARE WHAT I'M JAST WONT TO SAY I AGREE WHIT YOU
100% SOME PEOPLE CAN BE A REAL ASS HOLE MS WILSON JAST PASSED AND THER DESRESPECTFUL COMMENT
IS IT GOING TO STOP
Yvette was very funny for those of you that missed to bad her stand-up comedy was hilarious
Reblogged this on Veryrarebeauty143's Blog and commented:
RIP to the talented actress, Yvette Wilson! We never know when God will call us home. I will be praying for her family as they cope with this loss.
Such a nice blog! I put it on my "follow" list. Keep up the good work, girls!
It is very sad when someone pass away and people can make jokes ass if God is not coming for you one day and you could suffer with your illness for a long long time before God decide to take you. You better hope you have your life right before he does cause you know where you will be going. As far as we all look the same boy and I say boy very loosely, black people come in all shades of color and very beautiful colors. We all can't be pale and red trying our very best to get a tan that does not work and on top of it risking skin cancer trying to get color. You all are the ones that look alike, he'll I can't tell my waitress from one to the other when I go out to eat. I didn't want to go there because this should be a place to comment about the lost of a person life not what color she was or nobody watch the show anyway. If you didn't watch it what the hell you doing posting a comment get the he'll off the website then. Like a couple of women on basketball wives would say and of course I know anonyi and Matt did not watch this black show but this is what Jen would say keep it moving and Evelyn would say you are a non mother Fu........ factor!
What are you babbling about? You are bringing up the race card.
all those shades of brown come from different percentages (of you guessed it) white. And black folks need sun screen too, honey, or they turn purple instead of red.
She was indeed a funny lady. She had a small but memorable part in the first installment of "Friday". She was supposed to be Chris Tucker's blind date. The scene was hysterical. Tucker's character didn't want her because she was short, fat and bald-headed. Remember, "She told me on the phone that she looked like Janet Jackson – Hell, she looked more like Freddy Jackson."
Don't eva...eva, eva, eva, eva, eva come by here...or I won't call you! Classic.
mo to tha e to tha moesha...just kiddin
wait whos yvette wilson in that picture? they all look the same LOL
Wow, so not funny.

Where is the humor in that comment???
WHO??? oh. a so-so star from a show no one watched.
That is Ignorant, When someone die that is very close to you and someone say oh that some bum on the street, who wont pay taxes anywho rip I guess ... God don't like ugly Sir
Kind of weird that both shows she was on won Oscars with no one watching. Puzzling.
if it is a show that no one watches, it ran for a while–much longer than yours@#– O, I forgot y-o-u don't have one!!!!!
THE PARKERS STAY ON AIR FOR 4YRS SO SOMEONE WATCHED
A show no one watched? Both the Parkers and Moesha were top rated shows.... Since your on the internet...utilize google before making ignorant statments...
hey merlon – TV SHOWS CAN'T WIN OSCARS. Look it up. It's in the Geneva Convention.
if u dont have nothing nice 2 say keep ur comments 2 urself matt,may yvette r.i.p,and god bless her family, if u only watch one type cast of shows u have no idea what is going on in the world with ur closed mind and those 2 shows are still on the air try google it still works fool
yvette r.i.p GOD HAS TAKING ANOTHER ONE OF HIS ANGELS HOME!
So sad! She's beyond the pain now. Women please get your pap smears regularly.
Oh wow! So sad to hear this! Such a beautiful person...inside and out. RIP Yvette.
Rest In Peace sister! We are praying for the family!
She has a beautiful spirit and is very funny...
I can't believe it RIP Yvette
RIP Yvette. Say... whatever happened to Jenna Von Oy and that spectacular junk she had in her trunk?
R.I.P Yvette (Andel)!
48 year olds are not supposed to die.
I agree with you Todd, that is way too young to die:-(
Posted on katw0man: Your posts cracked me up! Here's wathcha do with ugly-as-sin soap:*Label it as such and pretend you MEANT it to be like that! Like Ugly as Sin Soap: Because the World Can Get Really Dirty! or something like that* Cut it up and let it become one with the liquid hand soap in your bathroom, a little at a time* Cut it up and sew it inside little green washcloth bags that can be hung and dried between usesHeather: This also looks a lot like miso dip. A takeoff on Notagirlymom's great idea would be to make some washcloths that look like rice cakes. ;-)Sharon CBL’s last blog post..
R.I.P Yvette you will be missed!
Yvette was a beautiful soul; she will be missed.
She was a sweet funny lady RIP.
