Denise Richards Significant Mother

Denise Richards is sharpening her claws and heading prowling to The CW later this summer.

The former Twisted star will appear in Episode 2 of Significant Mother, a new comedy from Alloy Entertainment, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Mother follows young restauranteur Nate (90210‘s Josh Zuckerman) who returns home from a business trip to discover that his mother Lydia (The L.A. Complex‘s Krista Allen) is dating his best friend/roommate Jimmy (The Vampire Diaries‘ Nathaniel Buzolic).

Richards will play “notorious cougar” Pepper Spinner, a long-time rival of Lydia’s, who winds up on a date with Josh — you know, because that mother-son relationship wasn’t awkward enough already.

Significant Mother premieres Aug. 3 (9:30/8:30c). Richards’ episode airs Aug. 10.
