Fallen Star: Yvette Wilson March 6, 1964 — June 15, 2012

I just received the sad news that actress Yvette Wilson passed away early this Friday morning. The former Moesha actress (she played 'Andell') lost her battle with stage 4 cervical cancer. She was just 48 years young. I am sure you saw the reports where she needed financial help to pay her medical bills, and it is reported that with the help of friends she had raised $13,599 of the $25,000 needed. In addition to battling with cervical cancer, she also needed a kidney transplant due to kidney problems. I remember when she on Thea, playing 'Lynette', kind of the Ethel to Thea's Lucy. In that show she also co-starred with Brandy too. After that, her other big role was playing 'Andell' in Moesha, which she played for 4 years before going to the spinoff The Parkers. I always loved her effervescence, not to mention she could rock a mean short hair cut (or twists). She will be missed from tv.
