Sheryl Lee Ralph of 'Moesha' Fame Poses in Head-To-Toe Black Look & Thanks Her Stylist in New Photo
The “Ray Donovan” star is looking fabulous as she gets ready for her next big TV project amid the COVID-19 crisis, and she can’t wait to get to work again.
63-year-old actress and singer Sheryl Lee Ralph is taking social distancing very seriously, but that doesn’t mean she is not going to spend the coronavirus crisis out of style, as she proved in a recent social media post.
The “Moesha” star took to her Instagram feed on March 17 to showcase an entirely black outfit, complete with a wide-brimmed hat that looked especially classy on her.
“I am getting dressed and ready to SLAY #corona from my #harlemskitchen closet!!! #socialdistancing Just me and my mirror.”

Ralph also used the post caption to thank stylist and costume designer Rita McGhee for the look, which presumably will be featured in the actress’ upcoming series “Harlem’s Kitchen,” mentioned in the post.
As it was recently confirmed, Ralph is currently working on a TV project, and she is set to star as lead alongside “The Strain” actor Miguel Gomez in ABC’s drama pilot “Harlem’s Kitchen.”
Written by Zahir McGhee (“Private Practice,” “Scandal”), the pilot revolves around Executive Chef and patriarch Ellis Rice, played by Delroy Lindo who runs a fine dining restaurant in Harlem, with Ralph playing his wife CC.
An unexpected death sets the story in motion, with Rice, CC and their three daughters having to face many changes as long-forgotten secrets arise to the surface.
A MARRIAGE OF 14 YEARS
Ralph celebrated her 14th anniversary of marriage with 63-year-old Senator Vincent Hughes (D) back in July, 2019, and she marked the occasion by sharing a funny wedding story with her fans on Instagram.
The actress was working in Vancouver, Canada, at the time and couldn’t get to celebrate with her husband properly, but she made sure the milestone didn’t go unnoticed by recording a commemorative video in the social network.
According to Ralph, her friend and fellow actress Jenifer Lewis, who was right there with her as she got ready to walk the aisle, had a curious vision of who was the star of that day.
“I know this is your wedding, it’s your day, but I may never have one, and so, when I come through those doors, it is old about me,” Ralph hilariously quoted (and impersonated) Lewis, who did marry in 2012, in the post.
