Katy Perry Mean Guard On 'Raising Hope'

Katy Perry is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world of pop music, but she certainly didn't carry that title with her into her guest starring role on " Raising Hope " (Tue., 8 p.m. EST on Fox). Instead, she brought a terrible and terribly big curly wig and a mustache with her in the role of Rikki, the guard assigned to Sabrina in jail. Sabrina got arrested for a peaceful protest turned violent when the police refused to arrest her, so she kicked one of them in the family jewels. Once in prison, she found a new kind of torment in the form of Rikki, who told her that they'd once been good friends. Except when Sabrina got popular later in their schooling, she dropped Rikki. So Rikki set out to make Sabrina's life in prison a living hell, dropping her food on the floor and even taking her pillow and bedsheets. In order to try and win her back, Sabrina had to recite the pledge for the Little Beavers club and even try to sell cookies to the other inmates -- wearing the same Little Beavers uniform she supposedly wore when they were friends back in the sixth grade. Needless to say, Sabrina and her uniform went over very well with the male inmates. After Virginia's newfound friendship with the mayor -- for saving her from herself twice -- led to Sabrina getting released from prison, though, Rikki moved on to another female inmate with the exact same story. Maybe she's just crazy. Watch "Raising Hope" at its new time, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
