Are Denise and Frank Sherwood really, truly over on Army Wives?
Now that the divorce papers are signed and Denise (Catherine Bell) has found a new gig in stupid Colorado, fans are asking if she and Frank (Terry Serpico) are done.
Moreover, they're wondering if Catherine Bell is leaving the show.
"I'll tell you this," she told E! Online when asked about that specific topic. "I'm still in South Carolina, and I was filming the show this morning."
As for Frank and Denise, their divorce paperwork is done, but a relationship of some form continues, starting this Sunday at the christening of Roland and Joan's baby.
Bell says, "Frank and Denise struggle for a while. It's not over. There are some really wonderful scenes coming. There's going to be more communication about this."
Meaning Denise Sherwood standing up for herself and demanding respect?
"There's some really cool stuff coming up where you see a different side of him and their relationship. There's some positive stuff. He's really a big teddy bear."
"Frank really adores Denise. He's going to change a bit this season," Bell predicts."You're going to see a different side of him, that's very exciting."
What's next for the couple, when/if they work out their marital problems? Is this newly empowered, untethered Denise moving into a more career-oriented phase?
"My husband and I - Catherine, not Denise - are talking about having another child, and if I got pregnant, I don't know. Would they write it in? I don't know," the Army Wives star suggests. "That would be kind of cool. Pregnant Denise. Next season!"
Last but not least, for all the Frank Sherwood haters out there, let the record show that Catherine thinks the character is "misunderstood," and Terry Serpico, the actor who plays him, is a sweetheart and "the nicest guy on the planet."
He's also a good actor, in that case!
