Character Bio

Jean photo

Dolly's best friend, Jean is very often the stooge for her mordant remarks.

She is somewhat unhappily married to cheating husband Keith at the start of the series (with a grown-up daughter, Liza), and in the second series he leaves her for a dental hygienist.

After getting over the shock, and rediscovering self-confidence that she'd forgotten she ever had, she has a fling with a security guard (Barry "the love muscle") before settling down with Stan.

She should wear her glasses for reading, but never does.
