On the Single Parents episode “A Leash is Not a Guinea Pig,” Poppy (Kimrie Lewis) can’t believe how quickly Douglas (Brad Garrett) and the twins got over the death of their guinea pig, Pickle. So she encourages them to stop repressing their feelings and honor Pickle with a service. At the event, Miggy Park (Jake Choi) is behind the bar, entertaining the guests including one woman portrayed by Lauren Weedman.
The great comedic actress Weedman has appeared on several shows including I’m Dying Up Here, LA to Vegas, Will & Grace, Dice, Looking (Doris), True Blood (werepanther La Donna), and Hung (Horny Patty), among others. She most recently played Joni Beard on the reboot of Arrested Development (see link above).
Weedman is also an author. She wrote Miss Fortune: Fresh Perspectives on Having It All from Someone Who Is Not Okay (see link above) which details her husband’s affair with their 18-year-old babysitter, and her first and only threesome, among other events that rocked her world. Wild author Cheryl Strayed described the book as “so gloriously smart, deeply funny, and nakedly vulnerable.” Single Parents airs Wednesdays at 9:30pm on ABC, right after Modern Family, and right before A Million Little Things.
