Lifetime has cast two soap alums in an upcoming episode of DROP DEAD DIVA! Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and Cameron Mathison (Ryan, ALL MY CHILDREN) will both guest star in Episode 12 of the series’ fourth season, set to air in August. (The penultimate episode will also see the returns of Kim Kardashian as relationship guru Nikki LePree and Nancy Grace as herself.)
Jones is set to play Shelia Reese, a woman who lost her baby late in pregnancy and is now sterile after being prescribed a dangerous new drug. Shelia hires Dylan Walsh‘s trial lawyer alter ego, Lawrence Brand, to represent her against the pharmaceutical company that markets the drug. “Down here in Georgia in the heat enjoying every minute,” Jones tells Soaps In Depth from the DROP DEAD DIVA set. “Brooke [Elliott] and Dylan are lovely. Jaime Babbitt is directing, too. I appreciate working under a female’s direction! It’s inspiring.”
DROP DEAD DIVA airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
UPDATE: This episode airs on Sunday, August 26!
