Lisa Landry Sims - is a fashion designer by trade.

Personality Edit

She is the adoptive mother of Tia, though she is more aligned with Tamera's personality, sometimes even being more impulsive, lustful, and reckless than Tamera. She often cracks jokes throughout the episodes, which are typically at Ray's expense. She is prone to bouts of depression, during which she consumes high quantities of food (though it is also a running joke that Lisa has a hearty appetite even when she is not depressed). 

Fashions by LisaEdit

Until season three, Lisa ran her fashion design business, "Fashions by Lisa", out of Ray's house. In the third season episode "History a la Carte", Lisa moves her business to a cart in a local mall, which burns down because of a faulty popcorn machine in the season four episode "Sis-Boom-Bah", after which her business is once again run out of Ray's house.

At the beginning of season 5, Lisa is struggling to make a name for herself in the fashion world. However after Beverley Peel wore one of her gowns to a high society charity fashion show, business was booming.
