Keep It Trill: 15 Black TV Moms Who Played No Games
Dee Mitchell — Moesha
Dee was in a different class than a lot of Black TV moms. She was the Black TV stepmom. People often underestimate the power of a good stepmother, and Dee was among the best, mainly because she knew how to keep it 100 with Mo and Miles.
When she wasn’t balancing parenthood with her career, Dee knew how to get down and did so with some on point Jamaican patois. But in real life, Sheryl Lee Ralph kept it even realer than her character, Dee. She exited the show and became a recurring character instead of a main one because she did not like the way they changed Frank’s character into a liar and a deadbeat dad. Keep it trill, Ms. Ralph!
