It’s been a year full of reboot and sequel chatter, which might explain why Sheryl Lee Ralph thinks it’s time to start tossing out ideas for a Moesha reboot.

Ralph recently revealed to HipHollywood exclusively that a Moesha reboot would be wise. “It’s always been a great idea and I think it’s time has come,” Ralph said after suggesting she and the show’s star, Brandy Norwood, are a good team.

The Moesha star continued, “They’ve been rebooting so many other shows that aren’t half as popular as Moesha. So why not Moesha? People, I think, would just be falling down, tuning in to watch that show.”

Moesha was a hit 90’s sitcom that ran from January 23, 1996, to May 14, 2001. The program starred Brandy, Sheryl, Marcus T. Paulk, the late Yvette Renee Wilson and Countess Vaughn.

But while fans would love the idea of a Moesha remake, we wonder if the rest of the cast would jump at the chance to reprise their roles. The one person mainly in question would be Vaughn, who played Brandy’s best friend on the show.

Brandy and Countess feuded for decades before finally calling truce back in 2015 when Vaughn penned an open letter on Instagram apologizing for some of her actions.

“@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,” she captioned the snap. “We been [through our] ups and downs , high and lows,” she wrote. 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.”

Do you think the show would be a hit … again?

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
