TVLine Items: Molly Sims Crashes Royal Pains, JoAnna Garcia Back at ABC and More!

Molly Sims is Hamptons-bound.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Royal Pains has tapped the Las Vegas beauty to guest star in the Season 3 finale this winter. The Project Accessory host will play Grace Hay Adams, a supermodel-turned-magazine editor who successfully turned her life around after a tragic accident.

Also appearing in the episode is Tsai Chin, who Grey’s Anatomy fans may remember as the mother of Cristina (Sandra Oh). Chin will play Mrs. Sesumi, the grandmother to three rambunctious teens.

Royal Pains‘ third season resumes in January.

    It’s always great to SEE Molly Sims. It’s hearing her act that’s painful.

  3. Tee says:

    Joanna Garcia was great on Privileged (the only thing I think I’ve seen her in), hope her new show works out.

  4. TC says:

    Better With You was a great show.. what did ABC keep? Happy Endings… (and don’t lie ABC it was because Happy Endings skewed younger)

    • Eli says:

      Happy Endings was the better show of the two, although I liked Better With You as well, especially the 2nd half of the season.

    Glad that JoAnna Garcia may make it back to TV soon. In just the couple words to describe the show, it already sounds like it has potential to be funny. Can’t wait!

    Enough with the talk about Joanna Garcia and Molly Sims and let’s get to the best news item listed – Nickelodeon is bringing back Hey Dude! So takes me back to my childhood…is it wrong that I most look forward to repeats of an old kids’ show than anything else that was mentioned?

    Isn’t it JoAnna Garcia-Swisher now?
