Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Taps Hung Actress to Fill Janeane Garofalo Void

Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is hooking Lisa Edelstein up with a new BFF.

Alanna Ubach (Hung, Men of a Certain Age) is joining Bravo’s first-ever scripted drama in the series-regular role of Jo, a blunt, brassy New Yorker and Abby’s best friend from college who comes to LA to help her through her divorce.

Ubach’s character will fill the void left by Janeane Garofalo, who, as TVLine first reported, is exiting the show.
