We may still be a little sore that ABC Family’s Bunheads was so short-lived, but we’re psyched former series star Bailey Buntain is returning to the channel on Wednesday night for a guest appearance on Baby Daddy, kicking off a seriously hot spring for the actress. Not only did Bailey have the opportunity to film with their hilarious cast, but you’ll also be able to catch her in MTV’s upcoming series Faking It as well as Lifetime’s Flowers in the Attic sequel, Petals on the Wind (premiering Memorial Day weekend). Watch the Baby Daddy clip (seriously, we dare you not to laugh) and read our interview with the very busy Bailey.
OK!: Did you know the Baby Daddy cast before you stepped onto set?
Bailey Buntain: I did! When I was on Bunheads we launched around the same time as Baby Daddy so at a lot of our original press events we met so it was really fun to work with them. And I actually watch Baby Daddy because I did meet them so I wanted to watch their show. It was so fun when I found out I was going to guest star.
OK!: What was most fun about this appearance?
BB: My character is supposed to be a miniature Bonnie and Melissa Peterman was so great and so open and there were a lot of times I had to match her gestures or her inflections to really show we were little clones of each other. Because she’s so genius I was in heaven being able to mimic off of her. It was really, really fun.
OK!: Is there anything quirky they do on set that you found interesting?
BB: Oh gosh, yeah! I remember they had a bunch of inside jokes that were all based on songs. So we would all be standing around in rehearsal and all of a sudden I would hear Tahj (Mowry) saying a line in a song and then all of a sudden everyone else was saying the exact same line. It was this big inside joke and I was like, “What is happening?”
Catch Bailey on Baby Daddy this Wednesday at 830/730c on ABC Family.
