Shonda Rhimes must love making good girls go bad (i.e. Demi Lovato as a schizophrenic on Grey's Anatomy), because another popular Disney starlet is heading to another one of her shows...Private Practice!
So who is it? And what fascinating storyline will have her sharing scenes with Amelia (Caterina Scorsone)?
Debby Ryan, the Suite Life on Deck star, is the one who's in trouble...at least onscreen.
Ryan will play Hailey, an 18-year-old girl whom Amelia meets while in rehab. Say what? Yes, apparently our Amelia finds herself in rehab quite soon. The two ladies will cross paths during the two-hour Private Practice event on Nov. 17.

Fun fact of the day, Lovato's troubled character on Grey's Anatomy was also called Hailey. Maybe when Shonda thinks "troubled teen," she thinks "Hailey."
Excited to see sweet Debby Ryan in rehab on PP? Better than watching a Disney star spiral out of control in real life. Looking at you, Lindsay Lohan.
Private Practice airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC. And tomorrow night, Addison (Kate Walsh) might get one step closer to that bambino she's been wanting as she is starting in-vitro fertilization. Say a prayer.
