Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living… with her parents and younger sister in Evanston, Illinois, in a mansion with her Lexus convertible parked in the six-car garage. Her mother, who calls herself a "cool mom," doesn't believe in rules or curfews. Her mom has been known to burst in on Regina making out with a boy in her bedroom, asking, “Can I get you guys anything? Some snacks? A condom? Let me know!” Her mom may be interested in Regina's sex life because she doesn't have much of one with Regina's father. Apparently, her parents sleep in separate bedrooms, but Regina doesn't talk much about that. 

Profession… student at North Shore High School. Although she doesn't have the best grades, Regina clearly gets an A+ for her socializing skils during lunch. She's always at the same table with her closest friends and loyal minions, Gretchen Weiners and Karen Smith – and everyone else buzzes around them. Their threesome is known as "The Plastics," and Regina is the clear leader of the clique. Regina has created a list of strict fashion guidelines for the Plastics to make sure their outfits and hair always complement hers: ponytails once a week, pink on Wednesdays, jeans and sweatpants only on Fridays, and no tank tops two days in a row. 

Interests… cheese fries, dancing in the spotlight, and looking at herself in the mirror. Most of all, Regina likes to talk trash about her classmates. She and her friends keep a "Burn Book" full of all the dirty secrets they've collected about the "whores" and "losers" at their school. For example, did you know that Amber D'Alessio once made out with a hot dog?

Relationship Status… single. She had been dating Aaron Samuels, a popular football and soccer player, but they broke up. Now that a new girl named Cady has her eyes at Aaron, though, Regina is having second thoughts and wants Aaron back. 

Challenge… keeping her Queen Bee status. In a completely unacceptable turn of events, Cady is starting to become more popular than Regina. Regina thinks that's the ultimate betrayal, especially since she took pity on Cady when she first showed up at the school and took her under her wing. With Regina as her mentor and stylist, Cady was transformed from a geeky outcast into one of the most popular girls in the school. Now that her social status is threatened, Regina is determined to turn Cady back into a pathetic outcast once again.

Personality… well, mean. Very, very mean. Regina is a master manipulator who is out for herself and no one else. Although she'll stop at nothing to get her way, she's not pure evil. True, she made mistakes as North Shore High’s leader of “The Plastics,” but who among us didn’t screw up at that age? Her most impressive quality is that she's clearly a leader. You just can’t teach the kind of charisma that led one student to happily say, “One time, [Regina] punched me in the face. It was awesome.” She's not the most admirable leader, but it's definitely entertaining to follow Regina around.
