Tune In Tonight: Lifetime’s bad girls out for ‘Revenge’

April 27, 2013


Where would the women’s network be without bad girls or femme fatales? Brooke Burns (”Baywatch”) stars as the conniving other woman in “A Sister’s Revenge” (7 p.m. Saturday, Lifetime). Michael Miller (Tim Rozon) has put his wild ways behind him. The former Lothario has settled down with a wife and baby and is focused on running the hottest new restaurant in town.

Too bad for Michael, Suzanne Dunne (Burns) has her eye on him, and she’s put her home-wrecking engine into overdrive. The real mystery here is just what motivates our bombshell. Is it love? Lust? Or vengeance?
