Lisa Edelstein Teases Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, Abby's Complicated New Reality

at .  Updated at . Comments

Bravo's first scripted drama, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, is a humorous look at the reality of divorce starring Lisa Edelstein as a bestseller self-help author whose marriage is crumbling.

TV Fanatic visited the fantastic Vancouver set of the series to talk to Edelstein about the tone of the series, which she describes as "looking through a peephole at someone's life."

Unlike many stories about divorce, Abby's tale isn't about male bashing. Instead, she says it's about two people with a long complicated relationship who used to love each other.

Abby will have challenges dating, dealing with her ex-husband's CW girlfriend, and finding herself in this new reality she's living both personally and professionally. To help her through this difficult time, she leans on her two best friends.

Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 1 Episode 2 airs tonight on Bravo.
