Sister Sister Star Jackée Harry Reveals The Reason Eartha Kitt Once Slapped Her

Posted On : April 11, 2019

Whew chile! 

Jackée Harry showed us just how cool she is by opening up about an alleged violent run-in she had with legendary singer Eartha Kitt.

On Wednesday, Harry, 62, responded to a tweet, which asked “what’s the most surreal encounter you’ve had with someone famous?”

“I Didn’t Know He Was Taken”

Harry wrote, “Eartha Kitt slapped the f— outta me!”

“She thought I was sleeping with her boyfriend,” Harry revealed.

The 227 star then went on to admit that she was having sex with Kitt’s man, but had no idea they were together.

“I didn’t know he was taken,” Harry tweeted, adding a broken heart emoji.

Kitt died in 2008 at the age of 81.

The “At Last” singer is survived by her daughter Kitt McDonald with ex-husband William O. McDonald. Kitt was married to O. MacDonald from 1960 to 1964.

She Admits Working In The Industry Hasn’t Been Easy


Harry is most known for her role as Lisa Landry on the Disney series Sister Sister starring twins Tia and Tamera Mowry. But the actress and comedian has admitted that working in the industry as a woman hasn’t been easy.

“The thing with women is, you know you have these things you can’t talk about that aren’t allowed,” Harry said on Wednesday’s episode of Netflix’s Strong Black Legends.

“Men can say anything,” Harry continued. “With women you have to be careful because people are looking at the woman first then the comedian.”
