She’ll be joining series regulars Michael Jai White, Tasha Smith, Kent Faulcon, Crystle Stewart, Kiki Haynes and Jason Olive.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a rep for Perry has confirmed that the 19-year-old will appear on the series.

There are rumors she’ll play the daughter of one of the stylists that work at the salon owned by Smith’s character.

For Better or Worse is scheduled to return to TBS later this summer. The network ordered an additional 35 episodes following its premiere last fall.

The series averaged 2.9 million viewers and is the third sitcom Perry’s produced for TBS. The previous two were House of Payne and Meet the Browns.

It should come as no surprise that Perry is giving Bobbi Kristina her big break. He’s been a huge supporter of the Houston clan. He even allowed the family to use his private jet so they could fly the late singer’s remains from California to her native New Jersey.
