The addiction recovery group gets a wicked surprise tonight when Jill (Jaime Pressly) seeks help from her manipulative fat-camp health guru, Miranda (Kristin Chenoweth), on Mom.

“She likes to stir the pot in the most lovely way,” previews Chenoweth, and even the suspicious Bonnie (Allison Janney) backs down when Miranda “starts to really read her.”

The stars get candid about the dark side of 'Mom.'

Chenoweth calls her reunion with onetime West Wing costar Janney “like being with a sister”—although she felt the love with the entire cast. “I came in and had a great time with really strong, awesomely talented women. Who doesn’t want to do that?”
