Meet Lovita Jenkins, played by Terri J. Vaughn.

Terri J. Vaughn hails from San Francisco. Her journey into acting was a bit serendipitous. While in college studying advertising, she participated in the Ms. Black California pageant and was discovered by a producer who sat on the judge of the pageant panel. In 1997, her fifth year living in Los Angeles, she was casted as Lovita Jenkins on The Steve Harvey Show. Presently, Vaughn trades between television and film genres and has also began directing.
