Santa Monica, CA, July 26, 2011 - Charles Shaughnessy ("The Nanny," "Mad Men"), who played Fran's employer-turned-husband in the popular sitcom, "The Nanny," guest stars as Gregory, a guy that both Fran and her ex-husband Peter (John Michael Higgins) want to date in the season finale of "Happily Divorced." To date, the series is averaging over 2.2 million viewers every week. Last week, "Happily Divorced" was renewed for a second season of 12 episodes.

Also making a special guest appearance this season will be Fran's nosy and overbearing mother from "The Nanny," Renée Taylor, who will play Marilyn, an old friend of Fran's mother, Dori (Rita Moreno).

Moffett), Lou Diamond Phillips will appear as a man that chooses Judi (Tichina Arnold) over Fran, and Jennifer Holliday (Broadway's "Dreamgirls") will guest star as herself.
