Popular Television Psychic Miss Cleo Dies

The iconic television psychic who made the line “Call me now” forever popular has died. Ms. Cleo, who was born Youree Harris, passed away in a Palm Beach hospice center of cancer early Tuesday.

She was 53.

TMZ reports that Harris was recently hospitalized after cancer spread from her colon to her liver and lungs.

A rep for Harris said she remained a “pillar of strength” during her illness and died surrounded by family and friends. Harris, who was originally born in Los Angeles, crafted the Jamaican character of Miss Cleo in the late 90s. Her psychic commercials instantly became a cult classic.

After the Psychic Readers Network closed down, Cleo worked various odd jobs, including voicing a character in the video game, “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.”

Rest in peace, Miss Cleo.
