Tichina Arnold Gushes About Her 'Happily Divorced' Role on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

The title 'Happily Divorced' refers to Fran Drescher's character on the TV Land sitcom, but it would be hard for anyone to sound happier than Tichina Arnold did on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), talking about her role on the show. Arnold has been on some popular and long-running sitcoms, including 'Martin' and 'Everybody Hates Chris.' But she gushed about her 'Divorced' co-stars and seemed truly thankful to land the role of Judi Mann, Drescher's best friend on the show. "I was so happy when I booked this gig because Fran, of course, is just, she is television," said Arnold. "And she just knows her stuff and she's amazing to work with. And she knows, she's very smart. Really, really smart. So she and I have bonded."

Fran and Judi Compete for Lou Diamond Phillips' Attention on 'Happily Divorced' (VIDEO)

So when Fran and Judi spotted a guy they both wanted on Wednesday's 'Happily Divorced' (Wednesdays, 10:30PM on TV Land), they put on the full-court press, taking him away from his friends to talk themselves up. The man in question was named David, played by Lou Diamond Phillips. Fran and Judi saw him out dancing, and approached him at the same time. Then the negotiations began. David asked Fran what she did for a living, and she said she owned a flower ship. "Yeah, so if you ever want to send me some flowers, she'll give 'em to you half price," said Judi. Fran pointed out they'd be free if David sent them to her.

Fran Sneaks Into the Opera to Spy on Peter on 'Happily Divorced' (VIDEO)

Just because Fran and Peter are 'Happily Divorced' (Wed., 10:30PM ET on TV Land), doesn't mean they're ready to move on with their lives. Peter hasn't even moved out of the house yet. But this week, when Peter was on the cusp of a huge sale that would have allowed him to not only move out but leave the state, they finally faced the prospect of separating. Fran panicked, and apparently started sabotaging Peter's chances of making the sale by convincing him the octogenarian client wasn't interested in a house at all. He was only interested in Peter. She even slipped into the opera the two were at to try and "save" Peter from being physically assaulted by the man. In all honesty, if we'd seen what they saw we'd have probably jumped to the same conclusion they did in that moment.

Fran Discovers Unpleasant Secret About Old Boyfriend on 'Happily Divorced' (VIDEO)

It all seemed so perfect when Fran reconnected with an old high school sweetheart, Richard, on 'Happily Divorced' (Wed., 10:30PM ET on TV Land). He not only understood why she was still living with her ex-husband Peter, he helped hook Peter up with a job. More importantly, he was rich. What could go wrong? It happened when one of Judi's best friends turned out to be his son, and Richard bolted out of there like his shoes were on fire. Turns out he's okay with "those people" if it's Peter or anyone but his son. "Love isn't conditional," Fran said. "Love is love." Sure the message was a little heavy-handed, but we're in traditional sitcom mode. If this were the '90s, it would have been billed as a "very special episode" of 'Happily Divorced.'
