Alyssa Milano is set to show off a very sexy side of her acting chops as Savannah, in ABC’s “Mistresses,” premiering next month, but she said her husband, David Bugliari, is fine with it.
“My husband is really good with all this stuff and I don’t know how because if the role was reversed I would be totally freaking out,” Alyssa told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover for Friday’s Access Hollywood Live. “That’s why I never really dated actors because I always got jealous of their co-stars, because you spend so much time with them.”
In the series, which premieres on June 3 at 10/9c on ABC, Alyssa plays Savannah, a lawyer with a hot husband, Harry Davis (Brett Tucker). But, troubles in her marriage and a very flirty co-worker Dominic (played by Jason George) could send her eye wandering.
Although the title of the show is “Mistresses” (it’s based on the UK show of the same name), Alyssa told Billy and Kit the drama may surprise viewers who tune in.
“I think that the great thing about the show is [that if] the title is what people are going to tune into, they will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of heart that the show has,” she said.
Alyssa and her co-stars completed filming the first 13 episodes of the show, and now it is time to let the viewers check it out.
“I’m nervous about this premiere, by the way, and it’s the first time I’ve ever been,” she said.
“There’s a lot at stake because we’ve finished shooting the 13 episodes, so I feel like I know this person and I created this character and I just hope people sort of respond to it,” she added.
While on screen she plays a busy working woman hoping for a child, Alyssa herself is mom to son Milo, who heads into his toddler phase, when he turns 2 later this summer.
“I have to tell you… I am so in love. It’s the craziest, most terrifying love I’ve ever felt in my life,” she said of her feelings for her little boy.
