The cast of Lifetime’s upcoming series The Client List just got better, or if you’re not averse to lame puns, a bit more divine. Loretta Devine is set to play a role in Lifetime series that sounds like it could be quite a bit more scandalous than what we’ve seen from her in recent parts.

The Client List is based on a Lifetime movie from 2010, which starred Jennifer Love Hewitt and Cybill Shepherd and followed a Texas housewife who ends up running a massage parlor that’s secretly a prostitution service. The series will presumably continue the story with Hewitt reprising her role as Riley and Shepherd once again, playing her mother. According to Deadline, Loretta Devine is set to join the cast as a series regular, playing the owner of the massage parlor.

Devine is one of the reasons I can’t turn off Waiting to Exhale whenever I come across the film on TV, which seems like quite a bit these days thanks to a recent run on Starz. More recently, she’s played the recurring part of Adele Webber in Grey’s Anatomy. She also had a regular role in the short-lived ABC Family comedy State of Georgia. Hopefully things work out better for The Client List.
