Alice is a "June Cleaver-esque" housewife. Alice often bakes for the family and labels herself as old-fashioned. She claims to have attended the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. Her strongest bond is with Marshall. Alice has an extremely domineering personality; she believes herself to be the true personality rather than Tara and wants 24/7 control of her body, and stated that she is the "keeper" for all of Tara's other alter-egos. Alice is a very strong Christian and she prays every night for herself and all of Tara's other alter egos including Gimme (though she has hesitated to say his name). Alice will often try to have sex with Max because she wants to have her own baby (she views Kate and Marshall as only Tara's children, not her own). In episode 12, when confronted by Dr Holden, Alice says that Tara is weak, and that she needs her (Alice).
