Fans, Friends, and Family received the heartbreaking news that the actress Natalie Desselle-Reid has passed due to colon cancer at the age of 53.

Many celebrities have spoken out about the loss such as Bow Wow, Danielle Brooks, and Halle Berry. Halle Berry posted a tribute to the late actress saying,

"Natalie represented actual black women, not what black women are perceived to be. For that she was often underrated, passed over - deprived of the platform she truly deserved.
