TVLine has confirmed that Krista Allen will guest-star during Season 2 of the summertime sudser as Janine Winterbaum, a “real housewife” of Beverly Hills who enlists Harry and Joss to cater an elaborate soiree.

And though Janine is quick to peel of the Benjamins (and lots of ‘em), the demands she makes of Harry may test his limits.

An alum of such series as Days of Our Lives, Baywatch and What About Brian, Allen’s more recent TV credits include episodes of Melissa & Joey, Rules of Engagement and an arc on The L.A. Complex. The actress first shared her casting Wednesday via Twitter.

Adapted from a BBC One series, Mistresses stars Yunjin Kim, Rochelle Aytes, Jes Macallan and Milano as a quartet of pals grappling with infidelity, stalkers, reappearing presumed-dead spouses and other juicy soap-opera tropes. Season 2 will premiere this summer.

  • Let’s give Alissa a new love interest…Julian McMahon from Charmed would be perfect! They have great chemistry. What do you think?
