Jennifer Love Hewitt to Play a "Working Girl" in Lifetime’s The Client List PICS

JLH towelThis fall, Jennifer Love Hewitt will try her hand at escorting- on screen, at least. The Ghost Whisperer star has signed on to reprise her role as Samantha Horton, a Texas housewife-turned-hooker, in the new Lifetime series The Client List.

Cybill Shepherd will co-star as Samantha’s mother, who lives in blissful ignorance of her daughter’s nude profession. On the other hand, Jennifer’s real-life mother is thrilled that her baby girl has grown up to be a (onscreen) ho, as Jennifer told Entertainment Tonight:

My mom’s like, ‘I’m so proud. You’re pole dancing and you’re going to play a prostitute. Awesome!’

It’s like, ‘Yeah, what you always dreamed about, mama!’ But you know, it’s a great part.

The Client List was skinspired by a real-life prostitution ring in Odessa, Texas, and it’s far from the first tawdry tale to draw from real-life sex worker scandals. Join us after the jump for more movies that have turned news headlines into nude headlights!
