"Hopefully sooner," costar Busy Philipps told us last night at the Alice + Olivia fashion show benefiting Baby Buggy at the London West Hollywood hotel. "[Producer] Bill Lawrence gave us a big pep talk today saying that he thinks sooner, so fingers crossed.

"We like to think that the network knows what they're doing," she added with a laugh.

Even so, Philipps said, "It's confusing...It's a bummer, but hopefully it will be a good thing."

Not like any of this is keeping the cast and crew from working. "There's going to be a wedding," Philipps said. "There's going to be possibly another vacation someplace fun. My character has an amazing new business venture that they ripped from my personal life."
