Rosie O'Donnell on show cancellation: I thought it would be easy
The pair will appear in different episodes that are slated for the end of May. O'Donnell, whose OWN talk show was canceled last month after five months on the air, will play Katie O'Grady, a high school friend of Fran (Fran Drescher) and Judi (Tichina Arnold) who helps Fran learn a lesson about her relationship with her overbearing mother Dori (Rita Moreno).
Aykroyd will play a potential new love interest for Fran with whom her ex Peter (John Michael Higgins) sets her up. This will be the Saturday Night Live alum's first TV role since guest-starring on The Defenders a year ago.
Happily Divorced airs Wednesdays at 10:30/9:30c on TV Land.
