The cast of “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” joined James Lipton Tuesday evening for a mock edition of “Inside the Actors Studio” to discuss Bravo’s first-ever scripted series, in front of a crowd filled with TV Academy members.
Following the panel, “Top Chef” Boston contestants served up the Universal Studios Hollywood reception with dishes from season 12 winner Mei Lin, plus finalists Melissa King and Doug Adams. King prepped scallop crudo with citrus, Adams served a Texas-style brisket chili, and Lin made her winning congee dish. During the tasting party, small bites including mini cheeseburgers, brie crostinis and kimchi falafel were passed around, and chocolate-dipped strawberries were the hit of the dessert buffet.
Before the party began, Lipton took the stage at Universal Studios’ Globe Theatre with “Girlfriends’ Guide” creator Marti Noxon and ensemble Lisa Edelstein, Paul Adelstein, Beau Garrett, Necar Zadegan and Alanna Ubach.
The gallery was updated with 11 HQ images from Lisa’s appereance to the Bravo Media Hosts “For Your Consideration” Event that is taking place in Universal City, as we speak. Hopefully more images will be added at later time.

The always charming Peter Paige (TV’s “Queer as Folk”) stars in his directorial debut as Paul Johnson. Paul returns from his job one day to some distressing news: his closest friends, the Fabers, are moving to Japan, and they’re taking Paul’s two year-old godson Morgan with them. Paul begins to explore every opportunity that might afford him contact with children. Watching Paul’s natural, playful chemistry with kids, one local mother (Kathy Najimy) wonders who this amazing “Super Dad” is. She decides that Paul is up to no good and takes it upon herself to rally her neighbors against him. The suburbs are about to get hysterical in this dark farce, which also stars Melanie Lynskey and Gabrielle Union.
I was getting scared we’d lost her somewhere but thank God Lisa showed up again last night. Enjoy the 3 HQ images I found so far and hopefully I’ll be adding more.

“Cuddy” gets her groove back in Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce – the latest guilty pleasure on television, writes Debashine Thangevelo
THE current buzz on TV is Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce – the first original scripted series for Bravo TV, the network behind The Real Housewives franchise.
So what’s the verdict?
It’s addictive viewing akin to Mistresses and Devious Maids. You want to shove your man into the closet (for those who do have one) for an hour, cuddle up on the couch and get lost in the lives of these well-heeled characters paradoxically dealing with common life issues. Let’s just say chaos, confusion and the sheer mortification of exploring the “real dating world” have never resulted in a headier concoction of riotous and cheeky entertainment.
Lisa Edelstein (Abby McCarthy) – best known as Dr Lisa Cuddy in House – and Paul Edelstein (Cooper Freedman in Private Practice and Leo Bergen in The Fixer), as Jake Novak, make for a fascinating pair as the unhappily married couple navigating their way through emotional and verbal minefields as they brace themselves for their impending divorce.
“You smell of sex,” Abby’s jibe to Jake as he – in the blissful throes of his rekindled youth (aka midlife crisis) sneaks into bed in the early hours of the morning.
They wake to a house of boisterous and demanding kids. Of course, in between toast, cereal and coffee, they still find the time to slip in a different kind of quickie – text wars.
