Congrats to Orange is the New Black star, Laverne Cox. HipHollywood has learned that the actress has landed a new gig as a guest star on Bravo’s first original scripted series, Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce.
According to Variety, Cox will play Adele Northrop, a war journalist and LGBT activist who appears to present an award at a marriage equality gala.
“blockquote>Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce follows Abby who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie,” a network press release states about the series. “After publicly admitting that she has separated from her husband, Jake, America’s once-favorite girlfriend finds her career and marriage in a free fall. As she starts to navigate life as a single woman in her 40s, Abby turns to her new divorced friends, rather than her married ones, for advice.”
The series will debut later this year and is based on the Victoria Iovine book series, Girlfriends’ Guide.
