Welcome To Year Of Drew Carey's Wives
OK, not wives really. But a lot of the women who played characters with whom Drew's character came close to marrying (or did marry) have recurring roles on current TV shows. Cynthia Watros, who played Kellie Newmark on the Drew Show, is now Libby on "Lost" (one of the so-called "Tailaways"). Kate Walsh, who played Nicki Fifer on the Drew Show, is now Dr. Addison Shepherd on "Grey's Anatomy." Christa, Kate O'Brien, Miller has been on "Scrubs" as far back as 2001. Diane Farr, who was only three episodes of the Drew Carey Show (as Tracy who made dates with Drew, Lewis and Oswald in her first and quite memorable appearance) is now on "Numb3rs."
On the other hand, Jenica Bergere who played handy-unnhhh-man Sharon Bridges on the Drew Show hasn't pulled a recurring role. Nor has Katy Selverstone who played Lisa Robbins, Drew's first love interest on the show. Maybe had their characters gone so far as to get engaged to him, they'd have television roles in their pockets as well. Or maybe it's just a coincidence.
