Raven-Symoné has landed a guest-starring role on Black-ish, EW has learned exclusively.

The actress/singer will play Rhonda, Dre’s (Anthony Anderson) gay sister, who is just as uncomfortable talking about her sexuality as Dre is. The two have a playful rivalry in which they jockey for position in their mother’s (recurring guest star Jenifer Lewis) rankings that are released every December. Yet, despite her closeness to Dre, she just won’t be the first one to bridge the sexuality gap between them. She’s happy to follow her older brother’s lead.  

The openly gay That’s So Raven alum, who recently appeared on Empire, will appear in an episode aptly titled “Please Don’t Ask, Please Don’t Tell,” which will air later this season.

Black-ish airs Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
