Las Vegas alumna Molly Sims represents more than a pretty face when she guest-stars on the Royal Pains Season 3 finale (airing tonight at 10/9c, on USA Network).
Playing Grace, a onetime model-turned-fashion industry icon, Sims will interact with Reshma Shetty’s Divya when she complains of tightness in her chest. But as a character who’s also wheelchair-bound, Grace stands as an example of the cable network’s Characters Unite initiative to combat prejudice and discrimination, by in this case accurately depicting someone with a disability.
Specifically, USA and Royal Pains show bosses Michael Rauch and Andrew Lenchewski worked with the AAPD (American Association of People with Disabilities) to do right by Sims’ character.
Press PLAY below for a first look clip at Divya’s effort to get Grace to “sleep” with her. Elsewhere in the season-ender, Hank struggles to cope with Jack’s passing, while Evan teams with Boris’s cousin, Claudette (guest star Judith Grodreche), on an experimental product that may help a patient.
