Debra Monk, who suffered through Andy Sipowicz's drinking on NYPD Blue as his put upon wife and mothered George O'Malley on Grey's Anatomy, is returning to ABC.
This time, she'll be on to Brothers & Sisters as a rival for Sally Field.
According to reports, Debra will debut in the fifth episode of this season as Alexandra Kirby, who surfaces after Nora is offered a job as the host of an Ask Mom radio program.
Nora will apparently face some stiff competition from the more experienced and flashy Alexandra. Who'll get the gig? That's something we'll have to wait and find out.
We wouldn't bet against Nora, though. She's a feisty one, y'know.
