<u>Casey Wilson's "The Realest Real Housewives" to return to L.A.!</u><br>
by Danielle Turchiano</p>

<p>There's big news for <i>Happy Endings</i>' <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/2192">Casey Wilson</a> come September! Not only is the actress getting to play opposite comedy royalty Megan Mullally who was cast as her mom but she'll also have a "hilarity ensues" storyline all her own when her character of Penny moves in with Elisha Cuthbert's Alex. Judging from their antics while having "girls' nights" last season, these escapades are sure to amp up. But as if that isn't enough, Wilson is also resurrecting her "<a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/shows/2604">The Realest Real Housewives</a>" UCB staple.</p>

<p>For those of you who don't know, The Realest Real Housewives is a sketch show that Wilson and friends put on once a month over at UCB. Each month the script varies slightly, featuring reenactments (sometimes with bonus commentary) of pivotal and dramatic scenes from your favorite <i>Real Housewives</i> installments. Wilson writes the show, and she, along with comediennes like <i>The Big Bang Theory</i>'s <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/2079">Melissa Rauch</a>, co-star live on stage for one night only in Los Angeles.</p>

<p>"We're going to add a lot of new scenes from <i>The Real Housewives of New York</i>," Wilson previewed. "I wouldn't miss an episode! It's research."</p>

<p>"<a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/3142">Adam Pally</a> is in the show with me; he plays all of the house husbands. And then it's a great group of, like, five other comedians," Wilson pointed out, discussing the stage show that went dark over the summer.</p>

<p>And Wilson had a few things to say about a TV house husband for her own Penny, as well.</p>

<p>"I keep saying they should get that guy from <i>LOST</i>-- Sawyer-- Josh Holloway," she pitched who she'd like to see come on as a sure to be ill-fated love interest.</p>

<p>"But whoever it is I just hope it's someone hot!"</p>

<p><i>Happy Endings</i> is produced by Sony Pictures Television, which also produces <i>Community</i>, and since the latter series managed to get Holloway for a guest spot, we think the studio could make it happen for Wilson, too! Would you watch that? Sound off in the comments below!</p>

<p><i>Happy Endings</i> returns to ABC on September 28th at 9:30pm.</p>
