Ahhh this is so exciting!!
So, do you remember that grandma that accidentally invited a teen to Thanksgiving Dinner thinking it was her grandson? Well, they are getting a Netflix show!!
If you don’t remember, this story happened 6 years ago and it all started when Wanda accidentally texted Jamal, thinking she was texting her own grandson an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner.
Her grandson never got the text, but Jamal had the best response.
You not my grandma. Can I still get a plate tho.Jamal Hinton text reply to Wanda Dench
Wanda of course had the best possible answer ever…
Of course you can. That’s what grandma’s do …feed every one.Wanda Dench reply text to Jamal Hinton
