Popping up midway through Dixie‘s second season, Rupp will play Betsy Maynard, Wanda’s gin-loving mom who comes to Bluebell for a visit. Unfortunately, she becomes such a handful, her daughter pawns her off on Zoe.

Rupp most recently co-starred as the matriarch on ABC’s short-lived comedy Better With You.

  • Ms. Rupp is always solid. While I’m not as wild about Dixie, I *am* crazy for Emily Owens, M.D…and am sooooo sorry it didn’t find an audience. This is quality TV, folks. People cry and whine about too many teen shows on the CW, then when a great young adult drama–with Meryl Streep’s delightful daughter, Mamie Gummer, no less–is placed on the air, those same complainers ignore it. Kudos to TPTB for taking a chance on Emily. It will be sorely missed….esp. after tonight’s arrival of that very hot suspended Dr. Aquino. Wow!
