Wendie Malick got a chance to reconnect with one of her "Just Shoot Me" castmates on "Hot In Cleveland." Her character Victoria was reaching out to her former husbands in an attempt to find out why all of those marriages had failed. With her pending nuptials, she was growing concerned that this new one could fail as well.
The husband who was not to be named showed up at the hospital after she got a mild concussion, and he was played by Enrico Colantoni. On "Just Shoot Me," Malick was model-turned-editor Nina, while Colantoni played photographer Elliot.
Now, Colantoni played Dr. Julian Cortez, a successful heart surgeon. One problem in their marriage reared up almost immediately when Victoria thought he was a brain surgeon. Her narcissism made it nearly impossible for her to see the people around her. She also insisted that her work as an actor was more important than his work as a surgeon.
Julian told her it was more that he never felt needed. “You put this wall around you. I know you need your friends, and you need your work, but have you ever really needed a man?”
This was Malick and Colantino's second reunion this year. The whole cast of "Just Shoot Me" got together back in February just for fun. And "Hot in Cleveland" is staging an even bigger reunion next week for another cast member. The ladies of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" -- including Mary Tyler Moore, Cloris Leachman and Valerie Harper -- will join Betty White and Georgia Engel in the episode. Engel has a recurring role as Elka's close friend, Mamie-Sue.
