Moesha's Friend Spins Off
27 March 2001 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Kim Parker continues to be just as boy-crazy as she was when her character was on "Moesha". On this show, we learn that she gets this trait from her mother Nikki, who chases after stiff Professor Ogilvie in every episode. Unlike "Moesha", which has turned into a dramedy over the past couple of years, "The Parkers" are all about fun. Viewers with good memories will remember Jenna Van Oy as having been a regular on "Blossom". Countess Vaughn, who plays Kim, had a reoccuring role on "227", and was also a "Star Search" contestant in the singing category.
