Sela Ward can’t seem to shake the bottle. Playing Teddy on NBC’s Sisters, she’s a recovering alcoholic; playing the late newscaster in Lifetime’s Almost Golden: The Jessica Savitch Story, she’s a bottle blond — much to her dismay. ”My hair is so fried, you can’t imagine,” says the actress, a natural dark brunet. ”It took me 16 hours to go this light,” says the actress, who jokes, ”If I’d known, I probably wouldn’t have done” the movie. It’s not Ward’s first experience being fair-haired, though. ”I had gone blond once before — for the fun of it,” she says. ”You know, you hear blonds have more fun, so I had to find out.” Ward says the tress stress did have one benefit: ”My husband loved it. He had a whole new wife for a couple of months.”
