30 "Living Single" Celebrity Cameos That You Probably Forgot About

Living Single had some of the biggest and most relevant names in pop culture popping into scenes throughout the '90s.

In my humble opinion, few sitcoms from the '90s rose to the greatness of Living Single.

The friend group-based sitcom was the one that inspired everything (including that other sitcom you're probably thinking of right now).

Not only did the core cast absolutely slay their roles, but any time a guest star appeared, it really turned the laughs up a notch.

Here are some of the greatest to make cameos on Living Single.

1. Melissa De Sousa made an appearance in two different Season 1 episodes of the show, portraying two different secondary characters. In this one, she tips Overton, whose serving as the group's male stripper for a party.

2. Nia Long appears in the first season as Stacey Evans, a woman who is friends with Khadijah when she meets Kyle and catches his eye.
