No good deed goes unpunished.

Victoria (Wendie Malick) finds this out in the upcoming “Hot in Cleveland” episode, “Pony Up,” in which she accidentally commits to a rather generous donation — on national TV. Check it out in this exclusive sneak peek from the episode.

How does someone like Victoria end up promising a kidney donation? The actress gets into this medically beneficial (to someone else) hot water when she seeks out some mood-cheering attention. Appearing on an appeal for organ donation with Dr. Lori Hernandez — on “Good Morning America” — Victoria starts out by appealing to others for their generosity.

She obviously wasn’t expecting to have to practice what she preaches. But how do you get out of philanthropy when the entire world just saw your commitment? Could Victoria actually have to give up one of her own organs?

“Pony Up” will have the answer to such questions. Elsewhere in the episode, Joy (Jane Leeves) works with a private investigator named Bob (Dave Foley) and reunites with the hot Brony fireman, Sean (Eddie Cibrian).

This episode of “Hot in Cleveland” airs Wednesday, July 17 at 10pm on TV Land.
