Young & Hungry First Look: Meet Yolanda's Sister... Jackée Harry?

It’s only fitting that Jackée Harry should guest-star on the Christmas episode of Young & Hungry, as she is truly a gift to us all.

The holiday special — airing Nov. 24 at 9/8c on ABC Family — finds the Sister, Sister star playing Yolanda’s sister named, wait for it, Jolanda. (Yes, you read that right.) Gabi encourages Yolanda to invite her over for Christmas in an attempt to heal old wounds, but her plan backfires when she learns that Jolanda is keeping a big ol’ secret.

Some other stuff happens — more Josh and Gabi drama, to be sure — but let’s just take a minute to bask in TVLine’s exclusive first look at Jackée Jolanda in action:

Seriously, Harry playing Kym Whitley’s sister might be the most perfect casting in ABC Family history.

    You mean they’re not really sisters IRL? Hmm, they look and act so much alike they seem like sisters.

    “Seriously, Harry playing Kym Whitley’s sister might be the most perfect casting in ABC Family history.”
    Have you forgotten about Maia Mitchell and Bailee Madison playing half sisters on the Fosters?? Those 2 could be twins

    Perfect casting!

  13. Bob Backus says:

    Jackee ” is truly a gift to us all.”- that has to be the first I’ve ever heard that wrong statement. Frankly, she’s a cliche, that’s better done by many others.

  14. Sheila says:

    Can’t wait to see this! Love this show!

    I love Young and Hungry I admit I was hoping there would be a Christmas episode of Y&H but when I looked at the schedule for 25 Days of Christmas it wasn’t there so I just looked to see when it will be back I saw there was a holiday episode, and I can’t wait.
