• The mother of four (and K-Fed's ex), 31, plays a careless young mom on the CW's Everybody Hates Chris April 13

ANY PARALLELS? YOU HAD YOUR FIRST CHILD AS A TEEN. Just that we're young. I'm different. I took care of my siblings, graduated high school before I was 15.

WHY DID YOU TAKE THIS ROLE? It's a really good show and [guest director Debbie Allen] was amazing.

BRITNEY AND KEVIN JUST DID GUEST SPOTS.... People are like, "Oh my God, Shar's on a TV show," but I've been on TV since I was 3. I'm not jumping on because someone else did.

DATING ANYONE? No, I'm single and really loving it. Me not getting my feelings hurt, or worrying about anyone else's, it's kind of empowering right now.
