Miss Cleo, whose real name was Youree Harris, was dealing with colon cancer that had spread to her liver and lungs, a source told TMZ. She passed away today in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Harris, who was from Los Angeles, rose to fame with her Jafaican accent in the late 90s due to her pay-per-call psychic readings on the Psychic Readers Network. She was subsequently known for her catchphrase Call me now!
Even though we knew that she wasn’t really Jamaican, that she didn’t have all the answers and that the Psychic Network was a scam on the level of the Nigerian emails that promise to deposit millions in your bank account, we still loved Miss Cleo.
Thanks goodness, she no longer has to suffer, as God has dialed 1-800-980-8637, telling her to come on home.
RIP Ms. Harris.
