Cybill Shepherd hops aboard as the old high school nemesis of Regina (Jean Smart), and Mary-Kate Olsen plays a troubled girl Sam wants to reform. As for Sam (Christina 
 Applegate), she's moving back into her own apartment...where Todd (Barry Watson) still lives. (Applegate's recent treatment for breast cancer did not affect production on the show.) But don't look for instant romance rekindling in season 2, as Men in Trees hunk James Tupper will rear his manfully tousled coif as Sam's new love 
 interest. ''He's a philanthropist who does everything green and eco-friendly,'' says exec producer Donald Todd. ''Then she'll find out [that] it's very hard to live up to the perfect person. Especially because she's far, far from that perfect person herself.''
