Jennifer Love Hewitt's 'Client List' Drama: Actress Not Backing Down Over Casting Decision (REPORT)


Jennifer Love Hewitt isn't happy about what's going on on "The Client List," according to Deadline.

Pregnant Hewitt is battling with Lifetime over the plot line of Season 3, should the network decide to order another season, the website reports.

Hewitt, who is an executive producer on "The Client List," has reportedly requested that Kyle (Brian Hallisay, her real-life fiance) be the father of her character Riley's baby, while showrunner Suzanne Martin is gunning for Evan, played by the series’ male lead Colin Egglesfield.

“There are many story lines we are exploring,” Hewitt’s rep said. “So any suggestion that we are not doing our best to develop a great season is simply not accurate.”

Sunday night marked the Season 2 finale of the Lifetime series, and on Twitter, Hewitt thanked fans for their support and crossed her fingers for a third season.

The situation with Hewitt is reportedly holding up a potential Season 3 pickup, but the ratings might also be a factor. The show's numbers slipped a bit in its sophomore season.
