Selenis Leyva may be part of the best on-screen television in NBC’s Lopez vs. Lopez. As with many sitcom traditions, the show has a touching and heartwarming Christmas episode that captures the spirit with plenty of laughs.
The extraordinary episode explores the conflict with the parents, making traditional tamales, and the loneliness of the holidays. Best of all, the cast members of the original The George Lopez Show make an appearance that certainly creates the perfect reunion with guest stars Constance Marie, Valente Rodriguez, Luis Armand Garcia, and Belita Moreno.
Here is the official description of the Christmas episode of Lopez vs. Lopez:
To get Mayan’s divorced parents to spend Nochebuena together, she must convince Rosie to hand in her Christmas crown and George to give up the thing he loves most: beer. The cast includes George Lopez, Mayan Lopez, Selenis Leyva, Brice Gonzalez, Matt Shively, and Laci Mosely (recurring).
