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.

Photos: Breakfast with Love

Posted By kim_messina 5:41pm GMT

Celebrating love with Love? Sounds like perfect combination! Yesterday, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Loretta Divine spent Valentine's Day celebrating the second season of "The Client List" with the press. "Breakfast with Love" (get it?!) was held at Mel's Diner on the Sunset Strip, where a billboard for TCL sits right above.

And of course, it wouldn't be a "Client List" event without hunky men, who were on-hand to hand out copies of Jennifer's single "I'm A Woman." (If you haven't seen the music video, do yourself a favor and click here.)

Betty White on The Client List

Welcome to the Rub of Sugar Land, Betty! Here's your first look at the "Golden Girl's" guest appearance on the season finale of "The Client List." Betty will play Ruth Gibbons, the feisty wife of one of Riley’s clients who gives Riley some unique insight about how to make a marriage last.

"She's even more amazing than you want her to be. She's just awesome. It was really, really cool," star Jennifer Love Hewitt says. "She was really funny the first day. She came into the trailer and we hadn't really met yet. It was 5 o'clock in the morning and we had rollers in the hair and she just sits down in the chair and goes, 'So, what's it like not being the pretty one in the trailer anymore.'"

The season finale of "The Client List" airs Sunday, June 17 at 10/9c.

"The Hunger Games" Star Josh Hutcherson Loves "The Client List"!

Posted By kim_messina 11:36am GMT

Josh HutchersonLet's face it — "The Client List" is the most addictive show on television. And I'm not the only one who feels that way. After breaking his nose while training for the second "Hunger Games" flick "Catching Fire," star Josh Hutcherson Tweeted that all needed to get better was a little TLC... Love standing for Jennifer Love Hewitt, that is!

"Just had surgery to fix my broken nose. recovery sucks...thank god for a marathon on lifetime...#theclientlist thanks @thereal_jlh," Josh (@jhutch1992) Tweeted.

So now that we've established that JHutch is a big fan of JLove, how about a little Peeta action at The Rub of Sugar Land? I mean, the District 12 Tribute and Hunger Games victor must need a massage after those long nights in the arena, right?!

In your dream world, what kind of character would Josh Hutcherson play if he was to guest star on "The Client List"? Would he be a client?
