Yesterday we posted Jackée's thoughts on Girl Meets World and her other projects, so today it's all about the really fun stuff! She chatted about her dreams for a Sister, Sister reunion and her favorite reality TV shows (including what it's really like on Watch What Happens Live!).

OK! Old School: Where is the cast of Sister, Sister now?

OK!: So everyone wants to do a Sister, Sister reunion, right?

Jackée Harry: The twins do, so there you go! Tia and Tamera are my girls. I can’t get rid of them. I’m going to run away to Russia. They’re like, I will find you. They’re family to me. They’re strong young women, and very smart.

Watch: A star of Sister, Sister shares a gross memory with Tia!

OK!: What does the reunion need to get off the ground?

JH: A writer. A producer, or a showrunner. Someone who can write it and execute it, who understands the girls as they are now. They are so grounded. They have whole other lives that no one knows about. And their brother Tahj Mowry is fine. They say, 'Jackée, you a cougar!' He turned out to be so fine. The girls are really normal, and they found some cool guys. Me, I’m looking for a husband.

OK!: Maybe you need a dating show. "Jackée, Looking for Love."

JH: I don’t know about love—I’m talking about a husband. laughs No, a good companion.

OK!: Which reality shows do you watch?

JH: Married to Medicine. That showed a real fight, too. She held her hair! Woo! The only thing was, they didn’t go in the pool. I was like, push her in the pool, push her in the pool! I hate reality shows like most actors, because oh, we trained, and you’re getting this for free. But it’s riveting.

OK! Have you heard about NeNe's new show, I Dream of NeNe?

JH: I love NeNe. I am one of her fans. She is real people. She’s real sensitive, and people don’t know that. She comes off like she’s a bully but she’s not. She’s just very defensive because people attack her. Her 15 minutes turned into a career. I like that. She didn’t just stay crazy and fight.

OK! News: NeNe is the highest-paid Housewife! See what she's making now.

OK! You've been on Watch What Happens Live. Are you close with Andy Cohen?

JH: I’ve known Andy since he was a page at NBC when I was doing Another World. Everybody came up through the ranks. He was a producer, and now he’s got his little studio, he’s got a book—who knew? The person who got me interested was Patti LaBelle. She did an episode with Kandi Burruss. She said it was so much fun, and it was! But he does get you juiced up. I was like, Andy, can we drink on live TV? And he’s like, yeah, girl! It’s top shelf, no swill! I’m so happy for him.
