Kenneth ClementsPlayed by Cedric Yarbrough
Kenneth Clements, JJ's new aide and "sixth DiMeo," signed on for the job because of his instant bond with JJ – and, truth be told, a little to annoy Maya. Kenneth helps JJ navigate the life of a typical teenager for the first time: from getting in with the cool kids to spending time away from his mom. In his new role, Kenneth has to learn when to play aide and when to play friend, but ultimately finds the fun balance in everything he and JJ do. And while Kenneth is at first taken aback by some of the DiMeo ways – and occasionally finds that he's bitten off more than he can chew – he comes to care for JJ and the DiMeos more than he ever expected.
