A first glance at the cast of The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition might have you believe that the pretty 20-year-old Carrie Jackson is one of the celebrities. But she’s not (yet). Carrie is on the group therapy reality TV show to mend her relationship with her mother, Shar Jackson, the actress who played best friend Niecy Jackson on the popular TV show Moesha (1996-2001). Shar is also known as the ex-fiancee of Kevin Federline, who later married pop diva Britney Spears. Shar and Kevin are the parents of two children, Kori, 13, and Kaleb, 11.
After breaking up with Federline, Shar appeared on a number of reality TV shows including The Ex-Wives Club and Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp (2010). But the most “reality” Shar will face is on The Mother/Daughter Experiment. Carrie reveals that after Shar broke up with her stepfather, Kevin, “We lost our house,” and in a way she lost her mother. “She went from being a loving, caring spirit to not wanting to go anywhere or do anything. Our family was ruined.” The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition airs Tuesdays at 10pm on Lifetime.
