Countess Vaughn apologizes to Brandy Norwood.
Mass Appeal Wire Reports
LOS ANGELES — The 20-year Moesha feud appears to finally be over. That’s because, on Saturday, actress Countess Vaughn waved the white flag in a rambling Instagram letter — apologizing to former costar Brandy Norwood for acting a damn fool nearly two decades ago. Back in April 1998, Brandy, 36, told Vibe magazine she and Countess, 37, were on bad terms in spite of their tight onscreen chemistry as best friends on the ’90s UPN show.
“I think she’s very funny, very talented,” Brandy told the magazine. “And she’s called me a bitch to my face. 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.”

Things have apparently changed in the new millennium. In a desperate effort to make amends, Countess posted a pic of Brandy on Instagram with the lengthy caption: “@4everbrandy 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 [through our] ups and downs , high 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 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. I believe in who you are and who you are working to be,” Countess continued in her Instagram ramble. “I believe in your ability to stand and courageously be the person you were meant to be. Im not perfect , no where near it… I care about your life and your happiness. I wouldn’t do what I did if I didn’t. I care about you as a person. We are spiritual siblings, you and I.”
“I apologize for anything Negative I’ve ever done are said to you,” she concluded. “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 ….. I didn’t do this for applause, because we all know that some people don’t believe celebrities to be ‘human,’ but this came from a very human place. No matter how or if she respond know that the Universe will continue to bring me growth and happiness because that is what im putting out there… Congratulations on every thing you’ve accomplished… Love you beautiful …. happy holidays from Countess.”
