As the writer’s strike came to an end, so did the abrupt end to one of the most successful sitcoms of all time. After enduring years of waning publicity, a switch to a new network and the departure of a major character, GIRLFRIENDS entertained and encouraged audiences for almost 8 seasons. Without a series finale planned, Keesha decided to address all of you with a personal message about the end of GIRLFRIENDS:
“As a fan of GIRLFRIENDS, I was very saddened by the news that the world would never get to see closure for one of the most important television programs of our time: a show with African American women as the driving force.
As a cast member, I will very much miss playing Monica and all of the changes she has gone through for 6 seasons.
As I prepare for life after GIRLFRIENDS, excited for what God has planned for me, I want to thank all of you for your loving support. YOU made GIRLFRIENDS the success that it was and I hope to see you again really soon as an intriguing new character.
Officially I also wanted to give a big thanks to the creators, producers, cast, writers and crew. It has been a great experience to work with all of you! God Bless You!”
