Filming for “Army Wives” Season 6 is underway and TVLine’s Michael Ausiello (follow him on Twitter here) has the sizzling scoop on exciting guest stars and what’s coming up for Kim Delaney’s character, Claudia Joy Holden!

“All My Children” fans will be happy to see Kim and fellow “AMC” alum Susan Lucci join forces again onscreen (Delaney's first acting role was as teen Jenny Gardner Nelson on the soap opera), but this time at Fort Marhsall. Ausiello reports that soap legend Susan Lucci will play the wife of a retired general in at least two episodes in Season 6. Her character will offer sage advice to CJ on dealing with a rival.

No, that doesn't mean that Lenore Baker is returning — well, as far as we know ;) — but Claudia Joy does have a new battle at her hands. "Lie to Me" actress Kelli Williams will join the cast of "Army Wives" for at least seven episodes as Jackie Clarke, the ambitious spouse of a general... and Mrs. Holden's newest enemy!

At the close of Season 5, Claudia Joy had just left her job under Grant Chandler and was helping to mend her family after Michael's scandal and Emmalin's return home from school. What do you think is next for Claudia Joy? What other guest stars do you want to see on Season 6 of "Army Wives"?
