Interesting Surprise On 'Necessary Roughness'
At the same time she's helping her patients deal with their various problems, she's sorting out the drama in her own life with two teenaged kids, her gambling addicted mother, a crumbling marriage and New York Hawks star wide receiver Terrance King's ongoing on and off the field issues.
Last night's episode had an interesting twist in it when Dani and her best friend Jeanette attend their high school reunion. The twice divorced Jeanette is hoping to make a love connection and reunite with her old flame Gerald Daniels and gets primped and Botoxed for the occasion.
Of course Jeanette and Dani are the best looking women in the room and after trading some catty remarks with some of their old classmates, she sets off to find Gerald while Dani is whisked to the dance floor by her soon to be ex-husband Ray Sr.who lets her know he wants her back.
Jeanette does find her old classmate, but is surprised to discover that in the time since they graduated from high school Gerald has become Geraldine.
The cool part was Geraldine was played by actress Candis Cayne.
I liked the scene in which Jeanette and Geraldine were recounting their respective lives since high school and the mutual admiration and affection for each other they had. Reminded me of my own high school reunion in 2000 and some of the conversations I had with a number of my cis female classmates about that same subject.
But was a nice surprise to see Candis in this episode and would be interesting to see her in a recurring role on this one.
I'm hoping that USA Network picks up this show for another season.
