Guest stars Sandra Bernhard and Laura San Giacomo will join gay-impersonating regular characters played by Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves for what promises to be a very lesbian episode of Hot in Cleveland.

The guest stars will play a lesbian couple who bump into the sister of San Giacomo's character (played by series regular Valerie Bertinelli) on a lesbian cruise. Malick's ex–soap star Victoria is pretending to be gay after her fake marriage to Joy (Jane Leeves) revives her faltering celebrity status. "They're all at this lesbian event where I am, and therein lies the hilarity," San Giacomo tells TV Guide.

"Laura has a fabulous scene talking about growing up gay and not being able to tell your family," Malick says. "It should earn her a GLAAD Award nomination.



The episode will air on TV Land Wednesday. Read our interview with Bernhard here.
