Of course, I’ve written several times about my love for Playing House, including an impassioned plea for the show’s renewal, and thankfully, the Gods (and the decision-makers at USA Network) listened. Season 2 of the series — written by, produced by and starring real-life best friends Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair — finds childhood besties Maggie and … Continue reading
