LIVE TWITTER CHAT WITH “THE NEIGHBORS” ACTRESS
TOKS OLAGUNDOYE (“JACKIE JOYNER-KERSEE”), WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14
“The Neighbors” Airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m., ET on ABC
Fans of ABC’s family comedy series “The Neighbors” will be able to submit questions and receive real-time responses from Toks Olagundoye, who will be up on Twitter at @ToksOlagundoye, during the East Coast broadcast of the show on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET). Olagundoye will offer commentary and share behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the show’s very funny Thanksgiving-themed episode.
In the November 14 episode, “Thanksgiving is for the Bird-Kersees,” Debbie wants her family’s first Thanksgiving at their new home to be different from Thanksgivings past, so she convinces Marty to un-invite his parents and decides to invite Larry, Jackie, Reggie and Dick over for the holiday instead. Unfortunately, despite his promise to Debbie, Marty caves to parental pressure and confirms his mother and father will be on hand for Turkey Day. Meanwhile, after learning the meaning of the holiday, Dick secretly invites Jackie’s estranged sisters, Venus and Serena, to make an appearance. Thanksgiving Day is anything but normal with the crazy alien neighbors, alien and human in-laws, and the Weavers all under one roof.
