It can’t be easy for performers to work regularly with people they can’t stand, and the feud between Brandy Norwood and Countess Vaughn of the 90s UPN sitcom Moesha meant that the two women had to pretend to be best friends on screen on a daily basis. Moesha saw the ladies working together for four seasons, and it seems that Norwood and Vaughn were not on good terms for most of their time as fake BFFs. Who could have guessed that Moesha Mitchell and Kim Parker couldn’t stand each other in real life?
Well, all of the dirty details of the feud are unlikely to be released, but Countess Vaughn has taken to social media to apologize to Norwood for her side of the struggle. (Grammatical errors are part of the original post.)
I apologize for anything Negative I’ve ever done are said to you….sorry this had to be on social media, I just want the world to see that I’ve grown out of my comfort zone…. Hopefully one day I can tell you in person or on the phone to let you know I mean everything I’ve wrote.
Vaughn’s apology – first posted as an open letter on her Instagram and then reposted by Norwood on her Facebook - saw the end of a feud that began on a show that premiered nearly two decades ago. Although the two actresses parted ways as regular BFFs on Moesha when Vaughn’s Kim Parker was spun off into a series of her own, Vaughn at least did not seem to believe that time alone would heal all wounds. Her reach out to Norwood was as touching as it was thorough.
I’m proud of you. For placing one foot in front of the other. For waking up every morning and simply giving it your best shot. for placing a premium on personal growth too. We been threw are ups and downs, highs and lows…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 you’re just an amazing person.
If there’s something that prompted Vaughn’s sudden apology to Norwood, she left it out of her open letter. Still, Norwood’s comment that her heart is truly moved by her former costar’s words is proof enough that she’s willing to look past their former grievances.
A bit of closure to the feud between Countess Vaughn and Brandy Norwood is an unexpected treat to Moesha fans. Imagining Moesha and Kim hating each other would be like imagining Shawn Hunter and Corey Matthews of Boy Meets World or Will and Carlton of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air hating each other, and it’s good to know that the actresses have mended their fences. Hopefully, nothing will happen to break the ceasefire.
