Character Biography

An overbearing, hyper-emotional shopaholic with no sense of boundaries and a big mouth that she's not afraid to use.  Her job is maintaining the house and she takes her job seriously, but she's no put upon housewife.  Beverly wears the pants in the family.  When Bev wants something, she'll do anything to get it. Beverly gives everything to her kids and has been there every step of the way -- PTA, orange slices at games, letting you know she's washing your dirty underpants.  Just one problem:  She's at the point in her life where it's time to start letting go, but she CAN'T.  Beverly is realizing that once her children are out of the picture, there's not much left... so she's clinging on to what she has.  Even though she fights with her husband thirteen times a day, they remain unhealthily dependent on each other.  There IS love under all the bickering and their marriage somehow manages to work.
