Wednesday on TV: Brooke Shields gets trashy on ‘The Middle’

First Published      Last Updated Apr 23 2014 03:23 pm

Brooke Shields has, for the most part, played relatively glamorous roles on TV. But she's back as trashy neighbor Rita Glosser in tonight's episode of The Middle (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4).

And Rita's collection of loud, large wind chimes puts her at odds with Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton).

Also on this week's episode, Brick comes up with a new snack idea and Sue tells the family that she and Darrin are dating again.
