Wow, two Gilmore Girls-related stories in one day. What are the odds?
This one’s actually less about Gilmore than it is about one of its alums — Melissa McCarthy. The funny lady behind Sookie is guest starring in a January episode of Private Practice, sources confirm to me exclusively.
According to a PP insider, McCarthy’s character is pregnant and a patient of midwifery expert Dell (Chris Lowell).
McCarthy has kept busy since Gilmore went off the air three years ago. In addition to her regular gig on the now-canceled Samantha Who?, she just wrapped a supporting role in the Katherine Heigl-Josh Duhamel romantic comedy, Life as We Know It.
