Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce season 1, episode 5 airs tonight on Bravo.
After the disastrous date with Nate, Abby goes on a date with her hot, young pursuer, Will. Meanwhile, Lyla’s mother, Annie, comes to Los Angeles to help her make the best impression possible with the visiting caseworker.
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 5 airs Dec. 30 at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo.
