TV Land struck gold when they launched Hot in Cleveland. The show not only captured the network’s love of classic TV by casting household names like Betty White, Valerie Betinelli, Jane Leeves, and Wendie Malick, but also proved that the sitcom format is far from dead. Tonight’s all new episode, titled Playmates, is set up to be a classic. Betty White’s cantankerous Elka has written a play about the lives of the women, and boy will they be unhappy when they see it. In classic Hot in Cleveland style tonight’s episode features a fabulous guest star in the form of Morgan Fairchild.
Fairchild plays the role of Elka on stage. The other ladies aren’t so fortunate with their castings. Jane Leeves’ Joy is being portrayed by a man, while Valerie Bertinelli’s Melanie is a nervous blabbermouth. In the exclusive clip from tonight’s all new episode Melanie sits down with the actress playing her on stage in an attempt to smooth over her on stage portrayal. She quickly finds out that being cast as Melanie isn’t as wonderful as she thinks.
