Countdown to Season 2: Spotlight on Evan

Posted By kim_messina 10:00am GMT

Evan (Colin Egglesfield) has been there for his sister-in-law Riley since Day One. When his brother Kyle abandoned Riley and their family, Evan immediately stepped as a "father figure"...all while harboring romantic feelings for Riley. (Evan later discovered that Kyle fled to Mexico.)

While Lacey's husband Dale encouraged Evan to confess his feelings to Riley, Evan stayed mum. In fact, he began to date Riley's spa nemesis, Selena. But Evan never stopped caring for Riley. In Episode 9, after Riley's daughter Katie ran away, once they found her and got Katie settled at home, Riley and Evan shared their first kiss...only to have Kyle come back into their lives the following day.

In Season 2, Evan will be involved in a love triangle with Riley and Kyle.

Countdown to Season 2: Spotlight on Lacey

Posted By kim_messina 10:00am GMT

Lacey (Rebecca Field) is the sister that Riley's never had. Best friends since childhood, Lacey is the only one who knows the truth about Riley's secret life. (Lacey stumbled upon Riley's stash of cash in Riley's house and put two and two together.)

When Lacey is not helping Riley with her kids Katie and Travis, she's working as a hairdresser at the Curl Up & Dry Salon with Linette.

Lacey is married to Dale, who is constantly on the job. In Season 1, Lacey said she was ready to start a family, but Dale confessed to Evan that Lacey can barely save money and they're not in the right financial situation to start a family. In Season 2, Lacey will struggle with fertility issues.

Countdown to Season 2: Spotlight on Kyle

Posted By kim_messina 10:00am GMT

Riley's husband Kyle (Brian Hallisay) may have been MIA for most of Season 1, but it didn't stop him from being a main source of drama! After abandoning Riley and their family in the first episode (with a mountain of debt!), Riley continuously tried to figure out why he would leave them out to dry. Riley eventually discovered not only did Kyle hide a pain killer addiction from her, but he fled to Mexico.

Kyle finally came back into the picture at the end of the season...but Riley immediately slammed the door in his face. Finally warming up to the idea that he could be back for good, Riley slowly let him re-enter her life. At the end of the final episode, Kyle went to The Rub late at night because he heard that Riley was in "trouble"— only to have the cops also show up.

Countdown to Season 2: Spotlight on Linette

Posted By kim_messina 10:00am GMT

If there was one person Riley could depend on in Season 1, it was her mother Linette (Cybill Shepherd). Linette is a hairdresser at the local salon, the Curl Up & Dry Salon, and in the middle of Season 1, the salon went up for sale. Linette tried to buy it, however, she lost it to conservative southern belle Taylor Berkhalter.

Linette's been married multiple times and in Season 1, she dated fellow churchgoer Garrett. And even though he seemed like a nice guy, Riley's boss Georgia did some research on Garrett and discovered that he embezzled money from the church. Linette sent him packing soon thereafter.

Countdown to Season 2: Spotlight on Riley

Posted By kim_messina 10:00am GMT

Riley Parks' describes herself as a "small town girl who LOVES karaoke, a good margarita and my two kids Katie and Travis." But as we learned in the first season of "The Client List," Riley (Jennifer Love Hewitt) tends to have problems that even a stiff drink can't fix. In the premiere episode, Riley's husband, Kyle, deserts his family, leaving Riley to be the sole provider. After taking a job at a seemingly traditional day spa, The Rub of Sugar Land, Riley quickly learns the way to make the big bucks is the offer sexual favors to her clients on the side. Conflicted, Riley seizes the opportunity, takes the job and starts her double life as a conservative Texas single mom and masseuse.

With a support group consisting of her mother Linette, brother-in-law Evan, boss Georgia and best friend Lacey, Riley often found it hard to keep her life at the spa a secret—clients' wives would accuse her of being the "other woman," Riley would run into clients at social events around town and her family became increasingly curious as to why she'd have to drop everything suddenly to go to The Rub.

As tensions grew between Riley in her loved ones, so did her romantic feelings for Evan. At the end of the season, the pair shared a passonate kiss...only to have ex-husband Kyle return to his family, leaving Riley more conflicted than ever. In Season 2, Riley must walk the fine line between her anger and love for Kyle and the feelings she has for Evan.
