In the Kevin Can Wait episode “Fight or Flight,” Vanessa (Leah Remini) and Kevin (Kevin James) need to travel for their next security job. On a flight, Vanessa tells a flight attendant that she and Kevin just got married in order to get moved to first class seats. Her scheme works but then hits some turbulence when Kevin meets Lisa.
Lisa is portrayed by Ali Landry. She’s known for her roles on Eve (Rita Lefleur), Felicity (Natalie), Pensacola: Wings of Gold (Teri), The Bold and the Beautiful (Amur), and Sunset Beach (Kenzie), among others. The former Miss USA (1996) is also recognized as “The Doritos Girl” from the 1998 Super Bowl commercial (see below; and yes, that’s Will & Grace star Sean Hayes!). That same year, Landry was named one of People’s “50 Most Beautiful”. She is married to Mexican-born filmmaker Alejandro Monteverde. They have three children. Kevin Can Wait airs Mondays at 8pm on CBS. [Related: What Happened To Kevin James’ Wife on ‘Kevin Can Wait’?]
