The TV Addict has just learned that a current Broadway Belle (and personal TV Addict favorite) is expected to guest star in several upcoming episodes of NBC’s LIPSTICK JUNGLE. To find out who we’re talking about,

Currently starring on Broadway in XANADU, Kerry Butler, who wowed this TV Addict as both the original Penny in HAIRSPRAY and Belle in Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is expected to appear in several upcoming episodes of LIPSTICK JUNGLE. Said our source close to the production, “She’s going to be on several episodes, playing basically an Eve Harrington type. Should be fantastic!”

Needless to say, the only thing that could get us more excited for this is if we knew who on earth Eve Harrington was?

    You should be ashamed of yourself! Eve Harrington is a character in the class Bette Davis movie All About Eve. I don’t want to ruin the movie, because you should see it, but basically Eve starts out as a fan of the Bette Davis character, then slowly becomes her, taking her job, boyfriend, etc. Great movie, great actors (including a Marylin Monroe cameo), and great lines.

    BTW, thanks for the post, big Kerry Butler fan.

    Kerry Butler was not the original Belle.

    My apologies. I didn’t mean to infer Kerry was the original Belle. In fact, I’m pretty sure Susan Egan was.

    Of course, Kerry was the BEST Belle…
