In the TV movie Don’t Wake Mommy, new mom Molly (Ashley Bell) confides in her new friend Beth that she’s been having “emotional issues” since the birth of her child. Beth comforts Molly in saying that she, too, has struggled with emotional issues. But it turns out that Beth is seriously disturbed and suffers from something more than postpartum depression.
Beth is portrayed by Sara Rue. She most recently appeared on Bones as behavioral analyst Leslie Green and on Mom as Baxter’s girlfriend Candace. Rue is best known for starring in Less Than Perfect, and for her recurring roles on Two and a Half Men (Berta’s hot pregnant daughter), The Big Bang Theory (Dr. Stephanie Barnett), Rules Of Engagement (Brenda), and Impastor. Don’t Wake Mommy will premiere on Lifetime on January 2 at 8pm. It will air again on January 3 at 12am, 7pm, and 11pm.
