Brooks’ Ruby makes quick friends with the resident doctor upon her return to Bluebell. (What about AnnaBeth?!) She is described as a successful woman with acerbic wit, making her something of kindred spirit to Dr. Hart. Her relationships with Lavon and Lemon, however, will be less harmonious as there’s some unresolved issues there. As we previously reported, Ruby was the mayor’s high school sweetheart, putting her at odds with the southern belle.

Hart of Dixie returns Oct. 2 at 8/7c.

  • Awesome!!! Zoe desperately needs a galpal. I adore the show, but that’s the element that was missing. So yay!!

    • Agreed. Annabeth was ashamed of Zoe and didn’t deserve Zoe’s friendship. Closeted friends are the worst.

  • I agree with previous posters that Zoe needed a gapal she clicks with and I can these two having that type of chemistry. Golden is a good actress, and I look forward to seeing her on Hart of Dixie. Sounds like it’s going to be an awesome season with another triangle added to the mix.

  • That sounds really good. A girlfriend for Zoe and a potential love interest for Lavon in one swoop. I think the show can use both really well.

  • I’ve had such a crush on Golden Brooks since she was Maya on Girlfriends and Chanell from Beauty Shop! This news makes me want a Girlfriends movie or reunion.

  • I was just talking to my momma bout Golden Brooks and she reminded me that last season Persia White (Lynn Searcy) was on the Vampire Diaries as Abby Bennett, the mother of Kat Graham’s Bonnie Bennett! The CW is showing love for the former stars of Girlfriends, so give us a Girlfriends movie or reunion special!!!

  • Can’t wait for Hart of Dixie come back! I’m rooting for soulmates Zoey and George! But this new girl…I hope this is just a bad photo because she looks like she has had a mountain of work done!

    • No she doesn’t. I think she looks nice. Just maybe she’ll show Zoey how to show some RESPECT for herself … she was EMBARRASSING.

  • Another black best friend role yawn, sure I applaud you CW from growing from the “token black” to actually having more POCs in one show, more so in the upcoming season but do all black people have to be some white kid’s black best Friend, is that all there is.
