The New Adventures of Old Christine

Christine is a neurotic divorced mother who is in a constant struggle to keep pace with those around her. Her ex-husband Richard has a new girlfriend (also named Christine) so she got the nickname "Old Christine". She lives with her son Richie and brother Matthew while with her best friend Barb runs a women's gym. She deals with her inferiority complex with meanie-moms at her son's private school.

Character Bio

Barb photo
Barbara Baran is Christine's straight-talking best friend and colleague at the gym (whom she often calls "my black friend Barb"). Barb is divorced and in the fourth season was revealed to be from the Bahamas and not a US citizen. She has a dry, sarcastic sense of humor and is rarely enthused by any of Christine's plans. Barb and Christine got married early in season four to save Barb from deportation, but their same-sex marriage ended up resulting in them losing ownership of their gym. Since they lost the gym, Barb sold her condo to build up a new business and is married to Richard to stave off deportation. She's also engaged to Dave, a man she met at the wedding. Unfortunately, in reality, Dave hates Barb and thought proposing to her would break them up, but instead she accepted.
