The Client List is being erased from Lifetime's little black book. The cable channel announced it is cancelling the series starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and former All My Children star Colin Egglesfield after two seasons.

So much baby daddy drama. According to Deadline, the renewal of Jennifer Love Hewitt’s The Client List, for a third season, is being held up over how to best handle Hewitt’s real life pregnancy on the show. Reportedly, Hewitt wants Brian Hallisay’s character Kyle Parks to be the baby daddy, but the showrunner wants Colin Egglesfield’s (ex-Joshua Madden, All My Children) Evan Parks to be the tike’s onscreen father.
I hear a major sticking point has been demands from Hewitt, who serves as an executive producer on the series, about the storyline for Season 3. I hear Hewitt has asked that Brian Hallisay, her real-life fiance and father of her baby, also play her character Riley’s baby daddy on the show in a major story arc next season. I hear that is at odds with the ideas from the Client List showrunner, who I hear pitched the series’ male lead Colin Egglesfield, and the network brass, who I hear have not settled on a character as they are looking to keep their options open but are not willing to go with Hallisay, who I hear doesn’t have wide support there.
Get all the details at Deadline.

Look for All My Children and Melrose Place alum Colin Egglesfield to likely portray the role of a young William Walker on Brothers & Sisters' upcoming flashback episode. EOnline first broke the news that Egglesfiield would be replacing one of the previously cast Rewind Walkers. Speculation is Egglesfield is going in for fellow soapster Daniel Cosgrove, who had previously been tapped to play William. I have to say, this is a good move. Egglesfield definitely brings to mind what I would envision for the cocky, philandering jerkoff who cheated on my Gidget with that tramp Holly Harper!
