MEL AND JOE FIND THEMSELVES IN A COMPROMISING POSITION WHEN THEY GO BACK TO NEW JERSEY TO VISIT JOE'S FAMILY ON THE TWO-PART SUMMER FINALE OF ABC FAMILY'S "MELISSA AND JOEY," ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28th AND WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4th AT 8PM ET/PT

Doris Roberts, Faith Prince and Marissa Jaret Winokur Guest Star as Joe's Family

Burbank, CA (August 8, 2013) Mel must pose as Joe's ex-wife at his dying grandmother's birthday party in New Jersey, on the special two-part summer finale of "Melissa and Joey." "What Happens in Jersey Part 1" airs Wednesday, August 28th , with "What Happens in Jersey Part 2" concluding Wednesday, September 4th (8:00PM ET/PT).

In failing health, Joe's grandmother Sofia (Doris Roberts) begs him to come visit her one last time for her birthday, and to bring his beautiful wife Tiffany along. Since Joe never got around to telling "Nona" he and Tiffany got divorced, he's forced to beg Mel to pretend to be his trampy ex. Soon, Joe and Mel are on the road to Jersey with Lennox and Ryder tagging along.

Once there, they meet Joe's colorful mother Gloria (Faith Prince), his sister Theresa (Marissa Jaret Winokur) and the formidable Sofia. Sensing something is amiss with her grandson and his "wife," Sofia resorts to trickery to see them repair their marriage by any means necessary. What started out as a silly ruse soon makes a wrong turn, and leaves Joe and Mel confused as to where they stand with each other.

Meanwhile, Joe's nephew Marco (Kevin Fonteyne) makes the moves on Lennox. And Ryder enjoys being treated like a king´┐Żuntil he's asked to perform a favor for the family.

"Melissa and Joey" stars Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence, Taylor Spreitler and Nick Robinson, and is executive-produced by Bob Young & David Kendall, Paula Hart, Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence.
