Sara Rue, aka primetime’s resident lesbian surrogate, returns to CBS’ Rules of Engagement tonight and she’s not alone.
While promoting her upcoming CW reality series Shedding for the Wedding at the Television Critics Association winter press tour last week, Rue told AfterEllen.com that her character, Brenda, will appear in her second episode tonight (Monday, Jan. 17) and that viewers will get to meet her girlfriend.
“There is a girlfriend scene but I don’t have high hopes for the relationship working out,” Rue told us. “My character was not the most honest about her situation [as a surrogate]. I think we’re trying some insemination in my next episode.”
Rue warned not to expect Brenda’s lady friend to stick around for too long — or see much PDA — as their scenes tonight might spell an early end to the new TV romance.
“There wasn’t a lot of PDA because it was a scene where she’s mad at me and it would have been out of context to lean over and land a big kiss on her,” Rue said, adding that Brenda is very “touchy-feely” on tonight’s episode.
As for speculation that Brenda will be a real charmer and go on a few dates, Rue is all for it. “I hope so, that’d be really fun!”
Rules of Engagement airs tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.
