It is important to note that Abby McEnany’s therapist is not dead. Specifically, she did not die while in a session with her.
“Oh my God, I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed ever again if that really happened,” she tells me. “How do you ever recover from that?”
The clarification is needed given the confessional, semi-autobiographical nature of McEnany’s new television series, Work in Progress, which premieres Sunday night on Showtime. It opens with Abby speaking to her therapist through tears.
