Miss Cleo, best known for her work for the Psychic Friends Network, died today from cancer at the age of 53. She was a staple of cable networks’ commercials in the ’90s. Miss Cleo maintained she was Jamaican, but in the ensuing years (and after the Psychic Friends Network was charged with defrauding customers), it was revealed that Miss Cleo was actually from Los Angeles. She had gone by many names over the years, but she was born Youree Dell Harris.
To remember her, we pulled some favorite clips of Miss Cleo on YouTube.
