Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce season 1, episode 4 airs tonight on Bravo.
Abby (Lisa Edelstein) starts to date Nate (C. Thomas Howell), a married dad with whom she had an emotional affair during her marriage. Phoebe (Beau Garrett) starts to get close to one of the dads at school. Lyla (Janeane Garofalo) tries to find a new way to release some tension. Max and Ford are honored at the Family Equality Gala and given an award by LGBT activist Adele Northrop (Laverne Cox).
Bravo’s first original scripted series, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, follows Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein, House), a self-help book author and guru of all things family, who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. After publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake (Paul Adelstein, Private Practice), America’s once-favorite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends, rather than her married ones, for advice. Her friend Lyla (Janeane Garofalo, Reality Bites) is a legendary no-nonsense entertainment lawyer who is in a constant “War of the Roses” battle with her ex-husband, and Phoebe (Beau Garrett, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) is a former model and budding entrepreneur who has a very unique relationship with her ex. When she hires Delia (Necar Zadegan, Emily Owens, MD) as her divorce attorney, Abby’s brother Max (Patrick Heusinger, Royal Pains), who fought hard for the right to marry, questions his sister on how she can so easily decide to walk away from her own marriage.
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce season 1, episode 4 airs Dec. 23 at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo.
