What a wicked stepmother you are, Selma Blair.
The actress has signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming "Heathers" TV reboot on the Paramount Network. She'll play the gold-digging stepmother to Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell). Jade is a menthol-smoking stripper who's just waiting for her 82-year-old husband to die.
The 10-episode reboot is loosely based on the 1988 dark comedy that starred Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannen Doherty (who is set to appear in the new series in a mysterious role).
New girl Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox) encounters a new group of mean girls who reign supreme over the school. Jasmine Matthews and Melanie Field play the other two Heathers.
"Heathers" will premiere on the Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) in 2018.
Veronica (Winona Ryder) is part of the most popular clique at her high school, but she disapproves of the other girls' cruel behavior. When Veronica and her new boyfriend, J.D. (Christian Slater), confront clique leader Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) and accidentally poison her, they make it appear a suicide. Soon Veronica realizes that J.D. is intentionally killing students he does not like. She races to stop J.D. while also clashing with the clique's new leader, Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty). Read More
