At long last, there is peace in the Moesha-verse.
Countess Vaughn — who played Kimberly Parker on the UPN sitcom from 1996 to 1999, then starred in her own spinoff, The Parkers, from 1999 to 2004 — penned an open letter to former co-star Brandy Norwood over the weekend, attempting to squash the pair’s infamous on-set feud.
“We been threw are ups and downs, high and lows,” Vaughn wrote in a grammatically frustrating Instagram post Sunday. “But at the end of the day I had to learn in find myself why not be friends when we’re both talented, Why call you names when your just an amazing person… I’m proud of you for being you and working to rise to the best you inside of you.You are an amazing being with amazing God-given capacity.”
And Norwood was quick to respond to Vaughn’s outreach, commenting, “My heart is touched right now. You are beautiful to me. Always have been and always will be! … Without you, Moesha would not have lasted as long as it did. I love you.”
Now that we’re all friends again, let’s turn back the clock to 1998 and see what this bitter rivalry was all about:
“She’s called me a bitch to my face,” Norwood told VIBE of Vaughn in 1998. “She said, ‘I’m the reason why the show is successful, bitch’ in front of a lot of people. And I looked at her like, ‘Wow.’ I couldn’t say nothing about her because I wasn’t about to. She knows. She wakes up and looks at herself in the mirror and gets disgusted. I don’t.”
But hey, all’s well that ends well… right? Countess Vaughn’s husband certainly seems pleased:
