Keri Hilson Runs Into The Real ‘Lisa McDowell’


A few weeks ago during the Halloween celebration, Keri Hilson and her boyfriend Serge Ibaka wore the costumes of “Lisa McDowell” and “Prince Akeem” from the movie “Coming to America”.  Incidentally, this weekend, Keri and the real “Lisa McDowell”, Shari Headley, met at Tyler Perry’s The Haves and Have Nots,  Shari, who played as Lisa, still looks beautiful and it seems as if she has not aged since the movie “Coming to America” was shown which is about 25 years ago.

On her Instagram, Keri posted:

“The REAL Lisa!! Lol! Lookin’ like NO time passed!! Lawd. I wouldn’t dare filter this beauty @shariheadley …and did you know she’s really from Queens??!”


It seems that Shari will become a part of the next season of The Haves and Have Nots, Keri wrote:

“My childhood dreams have been fulfilled! Chillin w/ my #haveandhavenots castmaste @shariheadley aka Lisa McDowell from the iconic movie Coming 2 America! I feel like Prince Akeem:) .Life is Good!!!”

The real ‘Lisa McDowell’ still looks the same, do you agree?
