Miss Cleo, who came to fame as the face and voice of the Psychic Readers Network in the 1990’s has passed away after reportedly battling cancer. She was 53-years-old.
A rep for Miss Cleo — whose real name was Youree Harris — tells us she died Tuesday morning in Palm Beach County, FL. We’re told she was recently hospitalized, but was discharged last week to a hospice center.
The rep said Cleo remained a “pillar of strength” during her illness … and died surrounded by family and friends.
Cleo’s Jamaican character and her psychic commercials became a cult classic in the late ’90s … thanks to her catchphrase, “CALL ME NOW!”
Miss Cleo was actually born in L.A. — she just nailed the accent.
As always, f*ck cancer. Rest In Power Miss Cleo.
