‘First Wives Club’ Star Ryan Michelle Bathe Talks ‘Homage’ Series and Evolution of Feminism
For almost two decades Ryan Michelle Bathe has made the rounds on such television shows as “Girlfriends,” “Army Wives,” “Empire” and “This Is Us.” But now she will be best known as one of the stars of Bet Plus’ “First Wives Club.” The show was originally set up at Paramount Network, but in late 2018 it was moved to another Viacom network, Bet. Then, Bet announced it would be one of the first shows launched on its new streaming service, Bet Plus. “First Wives Club,” which is from Tracy Oliver and loosely based on the 1996 film of the same name, is a show Bathe prefers to call an “homage,” rather than a reboot.

Your character Ari in “First Wives Club” is being positioned as a lawyer and friend first, before the relationship drama. Is it intentional for you to seek out roles that are notably empowered and educated at this point in your career?

It’s probably going to be a while before Chloe Lanier has her own child, but she’s very comfortable playing alter ego Nelle’s pregnancy on General Hospital because she’s had a baby bump before. No, not in reality — when she played homewrecker Penny on the Lifetime series Army Wives! And not only did the actress wear a baby bump, she died in it, too! “It was a real prosthetic bump that Nicole Kidman had worn in a movie,” Lanier told Soaps In Depth. “I felt so cool!
