We all have our favorite moments from Diahann Carroll. For some, it is her role as Claudine, for others it is her head-to-head battle in Dynasty with Alexis (Joan Collins) as the half sister of Blake Carrington, Dominique Deveraux. In the 90’s she was back on screen as the perfectly matched mother of Jasmine Guy’s character on A Different World, playing the role of Whitley Gilbert’s mom. Jasmine Guy took to social media to share her condolences.
Cast member Darryl Bell who played Ron Johnson in A Different World also expressed his condolences on Instagram

Having the opportunity to meet and work with one of your inspirations is rare enough. To have them exceed every expectation of who you thought they would be is a feeling that is difficult to convey in words. Diahann Carroll was a giant, a trail blazer, wildly talented and one of the kindest artist I've ever met. It was a privilege to be around, learn and be mentored by her. All of the A Different World family cherished every day she graced out set. I will miss her terribly and remember her lovingly. May she rest in power.🙏🏽
Who could forget the battles between Dwayne Wayne’s mom played by Patti LaBelle and Whitley Gilbert’s mom. Patti LaBelle took to Instagram to share her condolences.
Who remembers this legendary catfight?
