DIRTY SEXY MONEY (ABC) - "Cashmere Mafia" alum Lucy Liu is in talks to join the show's cast next season. She would play an attorney on the series, however full details about her character weren't released. Liu's involvement, which is technically in second position to a potential second season of "Mafia," comes after last month's announcement that co-star Samaire Armstrong won't be a full-time cast member next season.


I LOVE MONEY (VH1, New!) - Cris Abrego and Mark Cronin's 51 Minds Entertainment has added another "celebreality" series to its roster, this time a reality competition series in which "Flavor of Love," "Rock of Love" and "I Love New York" castoffs compete for money instead of romance. The series, to be hosted by MTV veejay Craig Jackson, is set to roll out on Sunday, July 13 with a casting special on July 6. Exact format details however have yet to be released.


PSYCH (USA) - Cybill Shepherd ("The L Word") has signed on for a two-episode guest arc on the show's third season. She'll play Madeleine, the glimpsed-but-not-seen mother of Shawn (James Roday) and ex-wife of Henry (Corbin Bensen). It's understood she returns from Europe to visit the pair, where she stirs up memories and issues for the boys. The new season kicks off Friday, July 18 at 10:00/9:00c.
