    They should've let the show go on . I know some people were upset when they found out that dorrian was franks son but everyone aint perfect and that episode showed that things happen but you got pick it up and go on . It was time for a change really because through out most of the series they protrayed frank as this perfect person that never did anything wrong. It goes to show whats done in the dark comes to the light.

    The show was cancelled which is why it was never resolved. Low ratings, Brandy not wanting to do any more are other reasons

    The show's ratings dropped drastically when "Secrets And Lies" first aired. "Secrets And Lies" is when Aunt hattie Visits and we learn the truth about Dorian & Frank.

    The show started to become a dram-edy. Sheryl Lee Ralph (Dee) expressed her dislike in the episode's story line because she couldn't understand why the writer's would make Frank, good father into a liar and cheater. So, she quit the show after the end of season 5 but since her character of Dee was an essential character, she made a few guest appearances throughout the final season when Dee was necessary to the storline.

    When the final episode as filmed, it was left on a cliffhanger intending to be resolved in the next season. It wasn't until The day it aired in May of 2001, that the show was canceled.

    Brandy stated that she didn't want to do the show anymore but that had nothing to do with the show ending.

    Moesha fans...

    It turns out that the critics depraised this show because after they made a spin-off called "The Parkers", the critics appraised Nikki Parker instead of Kim Parker due to Monique Imes Jackson's more talent, experience and supporting on the UPN's recession. I know it sounds stupid, but we cannot help it.
