Lipstick Jungle: Season 2 Spoilers
NBC's "Lipstick Jungle" returns this fall to battle ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" on Wednesday nights at 10pm. The spoilers are sparse, but there have been many candids taken on the set in New York recently.
Seven-time Emmy winner Mary Tyler Moore has joined the cast for a multi-episode guest role as Joyce, a retired high-powered executive and mother of Brooke Shields' character Wendy who will challenge he daughter's idealistic notion of "having it all." Moore's character will debut in the September 24 season premiere.
Meanwhile, despite ditching her mega-hot boyfriend Kirby Atwood in March, Kim Raver's magazine editor Nico Reilly will reunite with her flame as recent candids have indicated. The actress was spotted on the set on Tuesday playing with her son Leo whom she gave birth to last October.
Finally Lindsay Price's character fashion designer Victory Ford is coming to terms with her billionaire boyfriend's betrayal (Andrew McCarthy returns as Joe Bennett) and focuses her energy on opening a new store. Rodrigo, the hunky contractor taking care of the construction, will give Joe a run for his money.
Rodrigo will be played by Puerto Rican singer Carlos Ponce and his character promises to be antithesis of McCarthy's character. Rosie Perez will also join the show as a feisty publicist, who - what else? - is at the top of her game.
Last winter "Lipstick Jungle" did manage to win the ratings war with ABC's "Cashmere Mafia," the show everyone was comparing it to. With "Mafia" now gone for good, "Lipstick" will battle those wacky Darlings on ABC and, coincidentally, "Mafia's" star Lucy Liu who has joined "Dirty Sexy Money."
"Lipstick" which, unlike "Mafia," got a DVD release in late May was panned by TV critics for its silly plots. "Lipstick" star Brooke Shields argued the quality of those episodes was heavily impacted by the absence of the show's striking writers and the new episodes will take the show to a new level.
