For the record, Corinne and Rachel might make an unusual pair, but they’re friends nonetheless.
“I love Corinne!" the attorney said on Ellen last month. “Unfortunately, [viewers] only get to see some sides of Corinne. … I got to see all sides living in the house with her.”
If these cameos aren’t enough for ya, we do already know of one celebrity appearance.
Legendary NBA player Kareem Abdul Jabbar will guest star on a basketball group date which is filming this week.
