Default **OFFICIAL** "We Love You Debra" Thread

To show our thanks to Debra for 8 great years on MADtv, I decided that we could put together a compilation of notes in which I will send to her (also due to the increasing # of people telling me that they want to write letters to her). After everyone has said what they wanted to say, I will send it out.

*Please do not post off topic in this thread, I will print out everything as it is posted, so only posts directed to Debra should appear here. Your letters can be as long or as short as you want. Thanks.*

Dear Debra,

I have been watching MADtv since its inception in '95, and you've been a great asset to the show thruout your 8 year stay on MADtv. Your wide array of unique characters was great, I loved Bunifa, Melina, Cloret, Tovah, as well as the great portrayals of celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Whitney Houston, LaToya Jackson, etc... You are greatly missed, and I hope you will appear as a guest start on future MADtv episodes. I would also like to wish you the best of luck in life and your future career.

Your Fan,

Dear Debra,

I'm not really good at writing stuff to well anyone so here it goes. I have been watching mad tv since about season 5, and I loved all the characters that you played in the show. I espeacilly liked "reality check", and Bunifa. I wish you best of luck in your career, and in your life.




I'm back baby

In all my years I have never seen them do that!

Dear Debra,
I absolutely loved everything you did on Madtv, and now that you (sadly) left after 8 years of being on the show; I hope you are involved with many other projects so I can see alot of you! After a hard week at school I always enjoyed seeing you on Madtv, along with the other castmembers. But you were the one who always stood out the most. You should be really proud of yourself for making many many people happy. I am a devoted fan who just loves everything you did. I especially loved your Whitney impersonation, and Bunifa. When I was younger (I'm 12 now) I remember seeing Bunifa and my family and I laughed so hard, and since then we've kept laughing! I also of course loved everything else you did. You just had a way of making everything hilarious! Just keep doing what you do Debra and if you have the time, it would be really cool to hear from you. I hope my words have made you feel really happy!

You are an inspiration to me and many others. Thank you for all the years of laughter you have brought me. You have been a terrific asset to MADtv from the very beginning... I think its safe to say that the show would not have survived and would not be on the air today if it were not for you. I really appreciate all the years and commitment you have put into the show, lasting longer than any other cast member. You have brough so much humour into my life... there aren't even words to explain it, you have no idea the influence you've had on me... I'm a much happier/popular person now because of the laughter you have brought into my life through the TV Screen. It still hasn't quite hit me that you're no longer on MADtv (partly because theres reruns everynight at 12!! Hehe), but I hope to see more new material from you in the future, and although you've only been absent from the show for a few episodes, I already miss you and hope that you make an appearance for the 200th episode.

I just wanted to tell you how wonderful, special, and talented I think you are. You have a sweet, fun personality, and you have given the gift of laughter to so many people. I can't tell you how many times I've come home from a terrible day, only to be laughing my ass off because of you. You also have a very beautiful voice! You are truly an inspiration to your countless fans. I miss seeing you on MADtv every week, but I look forward to your upcoming projects, because you have so much to offer. Best of luck in all you do!!

Dear Debra.

My name is Gina Wainwright and I am 18 years old. We all miss your presence on MADtv but your legacy lives on as one of the most talented people to walk MAD's stage. We may not get to see Whitney Houston or Oprah Winfrey anymore, but you served as a role model for the future generations of the MADtv cast. They will look up to you and carry on the same heartfelt comedy you brought to the show. Even with you gone, it feels like you're still there. Thank you for all the laughs and MAD memories.

PS--- Do you have a favourite MADtv sketch or memory?

I'm actually a really nice girl in real life.

You might not be the most celebrated cast member in MADtv history, but you were *certainly* one of the most consistent. Thanks for all the laughs you provided over the years. I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.

Cliché enough for ya?
