Fresh off her long-overdue apology from the Miss America organization, Vanessa Williams has booked a new gig. The Ugly Betty alum joins The Good Wife on a recurring basis for Season 7.

According to the CBS press release, she’ll play Courtney Boalt, “an extremely successful, self-made businesswoman, who is potentially interested in backing Peter Florrick’s (Chris Noth) campaign for president. In the process, she meets Eli Gold (Alan Cumming), sparking a mutual attraction”

“There are very few names you can put side-by-side that make you laugh,” said executive producers Robert and Michelle King in a statement. “Alan Cumming and Vanessa Williams are at the top of that list. We couldn’t be more excited.”
