Character Bio

Antoinette "Toni" Marie Childress Garrett (played by Jill Marie Jones, 2000–2006) had been Joan's friend since childhood, and they went to college at UCLA together. Toni grew up in a poor farm family with an alcoholic mother in Fresno, California. Toni is considered the materialistic and self-centered one of her girlfriends and is the self-proclaimed "cute one" of the group. During the first season of the show she despises Maya, whom she considers a lower-class intruder. Toni is a real estate agent who eventually opens her own brokerage. Toni unexpectedly finds love with Todd Garrett, a white, Jewish plastic surgeon, whom she eventually marries after a short courtship. After a rocky year-long marriage, the two separate after Todd moves to New York. They divorce shortly after the birth of their daughter, Morgan Garrett. Raising an infant as a single mother raises new issues for Toni's self-indulgent personality, but she finds a way to balance her career and her parental responsibilities. After a protracted custody battle, she and Todd agree to settle their differences for the sake of their daughter. She moves to New York so that Morgan can be closer to her father, and is not a major part of Seasons 7 or 8.
