With tonight's premiere of "GCB" (10 p.m.), it looks like ABC has in deed found its true "Desperate Housewives" replacement.
In fact, "Desperate Housewives of Dallas" might have been a more accurate and less confusing name than the family-friendly "GCB" title, adapted from Kim Gatlin's popular novel, "Good Christian Bitches" (ABC also, for awhile, called the show "Good Christian Belles.")
In "GCB," Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb, right) returns home to Dallas with her two teens after her Ponzi-scheming Santa Barbara husband is killed in a car accident while trying to flee the country with a few billion dollars and his slutty girlfriend.
Amanda, a reformed Mean Girl, believes the biggest problems in her reluctant return to Dallas will be getting a job and getting along with her super rich, controlling mother Gigi (Annie Potts, pictured with Bibb).
But what Amanda doesn't count on is having to survive the unholy wrath of the women she tormented in high school.
