The actress will play Helen Potts, a recently divorced neighbor of Allen’s character. The episode will feature more than one wink to their classic sitcom roles, as Helen likes to do home repairs. She’s also bitter about her ex-husband, who often destroyed things around their house despite supposedly being good with tools.

Last Man Standing returns Friday, Oct. 3 at 8/7c.

    Another Home Improvement reunion on Last Man Standing? That’s the same situation JTT was in years ago.

    Could never stand him. Love her.

  3. I liked Last Man Standing. Shame it was cancelled after one season.

    ABC just needs to bring Home Improvement back lol. People like LMS, myself included, but I always feel like Home Improvement is the show everyone wants to see. I know I do. Looking forward to seeing her on the show.

  5. One day returning from work, I saw a table tennis
    paddle on the top of the refrigerator and asked her what it
    was for. ‘We can help each other as people of good will and like values.
    It is a vicious circle that can only truly be stopped once we manage to break our
    dependence on fossil fuels, despite all the lobbying, the
    major auto companies and the oil producing nations –
    namely OPEC nations – who rely on oil as their main revenue,
    all of whom are opposed to reducing our dependence on oil.
