Bravo rom-com “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” is amping up its cast for season two, Variety has learned.
“Homeland’s” Maury Sterling has been cast in the recurring role of Jo’s (Alanna Ubach) ex-husband, Frumpkis. He also has a new wife, a southern belle named Charlene (“Smash” alum Megan Hilty). Meanwhile, Aaron Staton (“Mad Men”) will be recurring as Jd, a new love interest for one of the show’s many single ladies — we just don’t know which one.
Bravo’s first scripted series, “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” follows self-help author Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein). A former picture of perfection, Abby finds herself navigating life as a single woman in her 40s after her seemingly idealistic career and marriage simultaneously implode. In addition to Ubach’s Jo, who is Abby’s best friend from her college days, the cast also includes Paul Adelstein as Abby’s ex-husband, Jake.

The cast of “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” joined James Lipton Tuesday evening for a mock edition of “Inside the Actors Studio” to discuss Bravo’s first-ever scripted series, in front of a crowd filled with TV Academy members.
Following the panel, “Top Chef” Boston contestants served up the Universal Studios Hollywood reception with dishes from season 12 winner Mei Lin, plus finalists Melissa King and Doug Adams. King prepped scallop crudo with citrus, Adams served a Texas-style brisket chili, and Lin made her winning congee dish. During the tasting party, small bites including mini cheeseburgers, brie crostinis and kimchi falafel were passed around, and chocolate-dipped strawberries were the hit of the dessert buffet.
Before the party began, Lipton took the stage at Universal Studios’ Globe Theatre with “Girlfriends’ Guide” creator Marti Noxon and ensemble Lisa Edelstein, Paul Adelstein, Beau Garrett, Necar Zadegan and Alanna Ubach.

I’m oddly happy about the fact that this show is getting another season, and that the ratings are climbing.
It’s not quite in the “must watch during actual live time” category (only four things are), but I like the theory of the show even more than the show. Hopefully, the continued realization of that theory is why the numbers are growing.
Better than the ratings, and we have to assume Bravo is smart enough to pick up on this, is the fact that people are talking, and that’s good to see.
Catch our review here, and breathe a sigh of relief, and catch up on the back episodes you have on your DVR that you weren’t investing in until you got good news.
