White will play Antoinette, a realtor from the South who becomes a new AA sponsor for Jackie (Edie Falco). She is being described as “ballsy” and having seen it all. Jackie may just have met her match.
In the season five finale, Jackie celebrated her year of sobriety by popping a pill before attending a party in honor of her achievement.
White will first appear in the season six premiere of “Nurse Jackie”. The show has also promoted Adam Ferrara, who plays Jackie’s love interest, to series regular.
“Nurse Jackie” will return to Showtime in 2014.
