According to ABS CBN, Filipino American actress Vanessa Minnillo-Lachey portrays Camilla in the show on Fox.

Vanessa is married to Nick Lachey and used to be a host on both MTV and Entertainment Tonight.

 Dads also features Brenda Song from Disney TV’s The Suite Life of Zach & Cody. In the pilot, Song puts on a sexy Asian school girl outfit and is asked to giggle in front of Chinese clients to woo their business.

The producers have asked that viewers give the show a chance before passing judgment on the way it depicts minorities and women.
