Suburgatory Scoop: Ultimate Mean Girl Carly Chaikin Spills on New Love Triangle!

SUBURGATORY, CARLY CHAIKIN, THOMAS MCDONELL ABC/KAREN NEAL

"Boo, you whore."

If you automatically know who said that line then congratulations! You're so fetch.

It's a no brainer that fans are making comparisons between ABC's new hit comedy Suburgatory and the classically quotable movie that is Mean Girls. So we recently chatted with star Carly Chaikin to ask her what we can expect from tonight's winter premiere and how she really feels about being compared to the fabulous yet evil Regina George…

"I think it's great!" Chaikin says about the comparison. "I mean, Mean Girls is literally one of my favorite movies. It's just such a classic. Everybody has seen it, and me and my friends quote it all the time."

Although both of these characters have blond hair, snarky comebacks and fabulous neck braces (more on that in a bit…) Chaikin tells us their personalities are not totally identical.

"One of the things that I've come to discover about Dalia is that the difference between my character and Regina George is that I don't think that Dalia is necessarily a bitch." Chaikin explains. "She has no filter; she's just brutally honest and really doesn't give a whatever." 

Well on tonight's episode, "Driving Miss Dalia," fans can expect to see a "whole other side to Dalia that we haven't really seen before."  After failing her seventh(!) driving test—and by fail we mean crash, Dalia hires Tessa (Jane Levy) to drive her around and stalk her new boy-toy Scott Straus (Thomas McDonnell).

"Dalia is just in love with him, so it's kind of about her just pining over him." Chaikin reveals. "It was a really, really fun episode for me to film personally and there's a lot of screaming and my voice hurt a little bit."  Hmm… we've got a feeling that screaming is going to be directed at the front seat tonight after Dalia discovers that Tessa is the actually one that makes Scott's engine rev!

Looking forward to the rest of the season, Chakin says that fans can expect to see more "subtly funny scenes" between Dallas (Cheryl Hines) and Dalia, and non-stop suburban awesomeness. "There are twists and turns but mostly the thing you know to expect is just more and more laughs and it's just going to get funnier and funnier."

Don't miss tonight's all-new episode of Suburgatory at 8:30 p.m. in ABC.

Are you excited for tonight's winter premiere? Who do you think would win in a Tessa/Dalia smack down? Is butter a carb? Gossip away in the comments!
