Vanessa Lachey In, Meaghan Rath Out In NBC Comedy People Are Talking

Vanessa Lachey People Are Talking

This recast should get people talking. Or not.

Vanessa Lachey (Dads) has replaced Meaghan Rath (Being Human) as Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s wife in NBC’s new fall comedy People Are Talking, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Rath had a good reason for bowing out: Her other pilot, Fox’s The Guide to Surviving Life, was also ordered to series (and was in first position to Talking).

People Are Talking, which will air Fridays at 8:30/7:30c this fall, follows two diverse couples (Tone Bell and Bresha Webb play the other duo) who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything. From topics like sex and race, to the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star, nothing is out of bounds for this wildly outspoken foursome.

Lachey most recently had a starring role in the NBC’s ill-fated comedy pilot Not Safe For Work.
