Andrea Barber Appears as Principal Willingham on Nickelodeon’s That Girl Lay Lay

Andrea Barber has been recurring on Nickelodeon’s That Girl Lay Lay since the pilot episode last year. Her character of Principal Willingham is the head of the school, often getting into fun situations, such as cheerleading, dressing up in costume and apparently, meeting rap stars like DMC!

Andrea posted about tonight’s new episode on Instagram, writing: “Why am I wearing a formal gown standing next to the amazing rap legend @kingdmc? 😎Tune into an all new @nickthatgirllaylay on Thursday at 7:30p! 🎤🎶 @nickelodeon.” If you go off the episode description, then the formal outfits and special guests may be for the talent show fundraiser at the high school.

Previously, she appeared on the show in July, which is when she got to wear a cheerleader uniform alongside some of the students in school. Check it out below!

Feeling very, very grateful💕,” she wrote on Instagram back in April 2021. Since the show’s now in its second season, safe to say it’s been a hit for Nickelodeon!
