BREAKING NEWS: “Moesha” Star Loses Her Fight With Cervical Cancer


Many will remember Andell Wilkerson from the “Moesha” show as well as “The Parkers”, both of which were housed on UPN.  Andell was played by actress Yvette Wilson, who was also in several films such as House Party 2 and Friday.  Wilson lost her fight with Cervical Cancer tonight.

Her former cast mate, Shar Jackson, has been requesting that her followers on Twitter pray for Wilson. However, her latest tweet made it clear that Wilson didn’t make it. Jackson’s final tweet stated:

I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home.. …”

Wilson is the 4th person from the cast to lose her life at a young age. She was only 48 years old, and had been at stage 4 of Cervical Cancer.  A friend of Wilson, Jeffrey Pittle, who was a survivor of stage 4 cancer, was raising money to help Wilson in her battle, but he was only able to raise 54% of the funds.

Wilson will definitely be remembered for her humorous roles, and her sunshine smile.  We definitely send up prayers to her family as well as the cast of “Moesha”
