American Housewife - Season 5 - Holly Robinson Peete Joins Cast

Holly Robinson Peete has been tapped for a major recurring role in the current fifth season of ABC comedy series American Housewife. She begins filming next week.

Peete will play Tami, a close friend of Katie’s (Katy Mixon) before the Ottos moved to Westport. Tami helped Katie quite a bit when Katie was a new mom — Katie always looked to Tami for advice, even considering her to be a bit “mom sensei.” When Tami’s two older children went off to college, she and her husband celebrated being empty-nesters. That celebration resulted in a now eight-year-old daughter. So when Tami moves to Westport with a youngster of her own, Katie is thrilled to reconnect with her old friend and hopes to return the favor and help her out.
