The woman who gave Kevin Federline his first two children before Britney Spears came into the picture is set to appear on the CW’s Everybody Hates Chris. Shar Jackson recently told People about her one episode stint on the show.
The actress, who turned 31 last September 4, will guest-star in an episode of Everybody Hates Chris, which will also be directed by the legendary choreographer, Debbie Allen of Fame, All of Us and A Different World. Jackson will portray a young mother named Alyson, whose teenage daughter uses Chris’ sister as her alibi to get into an R-rated film and visit a boy. Chris’ mother, Rochelle (Tichina Arnold), confronts Alyson about setting a better example for her daughter.
The episode, which is set to air soon after the premiere of Everybody Hates Chris’ third season on October 1, has been an exciting experience for Shar Jackson.
“I am having a blast,” the actress told People. “The cast is absolutely amazing.”
Jackson just came off a hosting gig in May, as one of the co-presentors of ABC’s reality series, The Ex-Wives Club. Although never married to Kevin Federline, Jackson emceed the program, which featured couples undergoing a bitter divorce, together with Donald Trump’s former spouse, Marla Maples and Ashley Hamilton’s ex-wife, Angie Everhart. Prior to this, Jackson initially rose to fame as Niecy Jackson on the sitcom, Moesha.
In other news, Jackson’s adversary on the Everybody Hates Chris episode, Tichina Arnold, was among the special celebrity guests during the 30th birthday celebration of rapper Ludacris. The bash took place at the Italian restaurant, Rio, in Las Vegas last week. Music mogul Quincy Jones and actress Gabriele Union offered their individual greetings to the birthday boy, while Tichina Arnold gave her own rendition of the traditional birthday tune. Arnold called her soulful serenade the “black Happy Birthday” song.
