"A Different World" star Cree Summer recently reunited with her co-star Kadeem Hardison in a video shared on social media. The short clip shared by the 51-year-old actress thrilled fans.
Fans could not contain their happiness after Cree Summer, who rose to popularity for her performance in the TV sitcom "A Different World," had a short reunion with her fellow co-star Kadeem Hardison.
Summer took to Instagram to share a video of herself with the 55-year-old actor singing the 1968 song "Ain’t Nothing like a Real Thing" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
STILL A TIMELESS LOVE TEAM
Summer and Hardison were widely recognized as Winnifred Brooks and Dwayne Cleophus Wayne in the hit 1987 TV show, a spin-off series of the popular sitcom "The Cosby Show."
Many fans who watched the classic series were thrilled to see the duo in one video. One fan commented that the former TV stars were "so sweet" in the clip. Another fan said:
"Thank you for being a part of my childhood."
A third fan added that the Summer-Hardison video was what she wanted in her social media feed. Their smiles, she said, are beautiful to look at.
One more fan commented that it brought her back to her childhood, and seeing them together gave her all the feels about love. She ended her comment with three heart emojis.
Amid Hardison’s on-and-off screen love interest, the actor eventually married Chante Moore in November 1997.
THEY DATED 25 YEARS AGO
While many fans are still hooked on the undeniable chemistry of Summer and Hardison in the TV show, not many know that the duo dated in real life. The on-screen tandem actually dated for a year.
The dating news was also confirmed by Summer and Hardison after a fan who watched one of the show’s episodes took to Twitter to ask their real status around that time.
Summer replied and thought she and Hardison were slick. The 56-year-old actor said that they dated, taking their fans 25 years to catch up.
PROFESSIONAL AT WORK
In a 2012 Essence interview, Hardison revealed that he never felt awkward being Jasmine Guy’s love interest while dating Summer in real life. Guy was linked to Dominic Hoffman.
Hardison added that his work relationship with Guy did not cause any trouble around that time. He added that Guy and Hoffman were inseparable as they brought out stillness in each other.
Amid Hardison’s on-and-off screen love interest, the actor eventually married Chante Moore in November 1997. However, their relationship did not last for a long time, as they parted ways in 2000.
The former couple, who have remained friends until now, shares a 24-year-old daughter named Sophia, who recently became a social media favorite. She appears to have a striking resemblance with her famous father.
