Jennifer Love Hewitt is getting hot and bothered.

When The Client List premieres Sunday on Lifetime, Hewitt will reprise her role as housewife-turned-stripper Samantha Horton in a TV version based on the popular 2011 network flick.

How'd she prep for the role? No, Hewitt didn't just go over and over her lines -- she also took pole dancing lessons! "My mom's like, 'I'm so proud. You're pole dancing and you're going to play a prostitute. Awesome!'" Hewitt told Entertainment Tonight. "It's like, 'Yeah, what you always dreamed about, mama!' But you know, it's a great part."
