Brandy talked about the tension between the two in an interview with VIBE Magazine in 1998 and told the publication:
I think she is very funny, very talented. I just feel like she wants to be in the position I’m in. People say to her, “You’re the reason the show is successful.” And she’s told me before. And she called me a bitch – for my face. She said: “I’m the reason the show is successful, bitch.” In front of many people. And I looked at her like “Wow.” I could not say anything about her because I would not. She knows. She wakes up and looks at herself in the mirror and gets disgusted. I do not.
Years later, the two seem to be on better terms. With conversations about a Moesha restart in action, it will be interesting to see if Brandy and Vaughn will repeat their roles for the show.
