True Blood’s Carrie Preston Heads to USA’s Royal Pains
True Blood’sArlene Fowler has hasn’t had the easiest life. Her last husband, René Lenier, was a fangbanger serial killer; her baby, Mikey, was kidnapped by a crazy ghost; and her current husband, Terry, is being hunted by a “smoke monster.”
So it’s no surprise that portrayer Carrie Preston is escaping from Bon Temps — and taking a trip to the Hamptons.
The erstwhile Merlotte’s waitress will guest-star on USA Network’s Royal Pains as “Jackie Van Ark, a successful romance novelist who brings her college-bound daughter to HankMed to treat her for mysterious symptoms,” TVLine reports. Her episode will air on Sept. 4.
While Arlene’s daughter, Lisa, is nowhere near college-aged, perhaps she can take some parenting tips from her new alter ego — including stopping her little girl from going as someone from Teen Mom next Halloween!
