Kathleen Bowmanplayed by Josie Bissett
Kathleen has taught her two kids, Tom and Grace, to be good and devout Christians. Last year, she lost husband Marshall to a plane crash. Less than a year later -- to her kids' dismay -- she's gotten married again. Her kids think she should have waited longer, but Kathleen's just happy to be happy again, and with a younger man, too. She and Jeff are totally into each other, and the kids will just have to deal.
Josie is best known for playing Jane Mancini on that '90s TV staple, Melrose Place. She recently made an appearance as Jane on the new Melrose Place. The Seattle native began her career at the age of 12 as a model in print ads and TV commercials. Her credits include the ABC movies The Fire Above and Dare to Love, the Fox TV movie Deadly Vows, the USA Network film Baby Monitor: Sound of Fear, and the Lifetime telefilm The Other Woman. She recently starred in the ABC Family original movie I Do, They Don't. Josie has also made lots of guest appearances, most recently on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. On the big screen, she made her feature film debut in Oliver Stone's The Doors, and her later films include the coming-of-age comedy Book of Love and the psychological thriller Mikey. Josie lives in Seattle with her children, Mason and Maya, and she's written three books; the latest is for kids and it's called Tickle Monster.
