She scored as a spelling whiz in Akeelah and the Bee. Now she's a junior fashion exec on Nickelodeon's hit new series True Jackson, VP.

ARE YOU A FASHIONISTA?
I like wearing good clothes, but I was not really into fashion before the show. I wanted to buy a L.A.M.B. bag, but it was like $600, and I couldn't do it. Spending that amount is just crazy.

CAUGHT UP WITH AKEELAH COSTAR LAURENCE FISHBURNE LATELY?
Not since we did Oprah. It's great news that he's on CSI, but I am more of a Law & Order: SVU-er.

WHAT DREW YOU TO TV?
I've done a lot of movies that kids my age don't get to see. This show is more myself. I joke around. I am not shy at all. People say, "Keke, you are crazy. We didn't know!"
