Wendi McLendon-Covey Modern FamilyThe Cam-Pam rematch is on!

This time around, Cam and Claire recruit contractor Pam to assist them with their house renovation/flipping project. “I think Cam has some ideas about the restoration, and he’s fighting [about it] with Claire,” explains McLendon-Covey. “So they get Pam involved.

“We’ll see how my contracting skills are,” the actress adds with a laugh. “We’ll see how comfortable I look with a hammer in my hand!”

Also on deck for McLendon-Covey: A three-episode return to CBS’ Rules of Engagement, which kicks off its seventh season on Feb. 4.

    • Worst abreviations ever. How hard was that for you? It looks like the serial number to my toaster.
      But yes, I agree.

  • I just thought that I’d point out that the name of Michaela Watkins’ character was Susan, but at one point in the article you refer to Wendi McLendon-Covey’s character as Susan instead of Pam.

    • Really? I love Lily #2! She has so much personality. Lily #1 had none, in my opinion.

    • they dropped lily #1 because the two kids were a nightmare to work with apparently and the parents didnt want them to do it anymore. anyway new lily is much better and is an actually part of storylines now rather than set dressing that was forgotten about when she was mute.

  • Wait, Rules of Engagement is about to have its seventh season? I thought that show was on the verge of getting canceled. It kept moving times and days for other shows. I am glad it is still on. I will have to catch up.
