‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ Episode Guide (Dec. 15): Abby Dates TV Celebrity Dr. Harris

“Rule #8: Timing is Everything” (12/15/15) – Abby (Lisa Edelstein) goes on a date with TV celebrity Dr. Harris (Mark Valley) to increase traffic to her blog and please Barbara (Retta).

Jake (Paul Adelstein) tells Abby a secret he’s been keeping from her. Phoebe (Beau Garrett) throws Delia (Necar Zadegan) an engagement party.

From Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and creator/executive producer Marti Noxon, Bravo Media’s first original scripted series “Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce” follows self-help writer Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein) as she navigates being single once again in her 40s.

In season two, as a new chapter in Abby’s professional life seems promising, her personal life remains chaotic and all-consuming as her adventures in dating become even more unpredictable. When she becomes ‘the face of divorce’ for chic lifestyle website SheShe, Abby is once again forced to live a lie hiding her complicated relationship with estranged husband Jake (Paul Adelstein).

But as Abby finds success preaching the pros of divorce to her readers and portraying a fabulous single life on social media, she is torn over whether her marriage is worth saving or if she should chart her own course.

Throughout Abby’s ups and downs, the one constant in life remains her incredible girlfriends. While Delia (Necar Zadegan) grapples with following the rigid traditions of getting married, Phoebe (Beau Garrett) tries to leave her demons in the past as she looks to find her true self and Jo (Alanna Ubach) deals with her ex-husband and new wife encroaching on her new LA life.

Joining the cast this season, along with Carrie Fisher who returns as Abby’s book agent Cat, is Retta (“Parks and Recreation”) playing Barbara, a rival editor at SheShe who is less than thrilled with Abby’s optimistic approach to divorce; Megan Hilty (“Smash”) as Charlene, a southern belle who is married to Jo’s ex-husband Frumpkis, played by Maury Sterling; Mark Valley as confident and charming TV personality Dr. Harris, who pursues Abby; and Will Kemp as Scott, a charismatic, off-beat, handsome vegan baker at Jo’s shop. Barry Bostwick and Lesley Ann Warren also guest star as Abby’s parents George and Dina.

“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP) with Marti Noxon, Vicki Iovine, Meryl Poster, Robert Duncan McNeill and Carol Barbee serving as executive producers.
