Finding rap success in a way that ex Kevin Federline might envy, Shar Jackson was crowned last celebrity standing on MTV's Celebrity Rap Superstar – beating out Playboy Bunny Kendra Wilkinson.

"I couldn't believe it. I just knew Kendra had it since she was definitely a favorite." Jackson told PEOPLE exclusively, "It's hard to beat a Bunny!"

Jokes aside, Jackson reveled in the surprise victory: "I looked up at my kids and the look on their faces made me tear up. They were so proud of me."

The reality show, which recently gave Jackson an outlet to bash Britney Spears, opened up new possibilities for the Moesha actress. "If I can have a career having fun, that's just awesome," she said about making a name for herself in music. "I really, really enjoy it. Why not?"

Federline's Parents Attend

Celebrating at the wrap party with her family and even Federline's parents, Jackson took a moment to remember what inspired her to join the show.

"I dedicate this whole thing to Lamont Bentley, who played my brother Hakeem on Moesha," Jackson said, "He passed away in a car accident two years ago and what he really, really wanted to do was rap. So I did all of this in his honor."

So what was Federline's advice? "He just wished me luck and told me to kill 'em." Her kids sent her off with a more gentle approach. "They gave me a bunch of big kisses," she said.
