About Her

Living... back in her hometown of the Bronx after some time away in Minneapolis. Rhoda was only supposed to visit her sister Brenda for two weeks, but she met a guy and never flew back west. 

Profession... window dresser and costume designer. Rhoda has an eye for fashion, as evidenced by her trendy headscarves. She shares her gift with the world by decorating department store windows, a career she began in Minneapolis before graduating to the big leagues in the Big Apple.

Interests… art and eating. As she puts it, “The first thing I remember liking that liked me back was food.” She sometimes struggles with her weight, but that won’t stop her from craving a “fat attack” in which she eats “3,000 peanut butter cups and dies.” Before she eats a piece of candy she says, “I don’t know why I’m putting this in my mouth. I should just apply it directly to my hips.”

Relationship Status... married to Joe Gerard, a divorcé with a construction business whom she met while visiting her sister. A whirlwind romance leads to a quick engagement and wedding, complete with Rhoda taking the subway and running down city streets in her wedding dress. 

Challenge... making her marriage work. After years of playing second fiddle to her friend Mary Richards back in Minnesota, Rhoda jumped at the chance to explore a serious relationship with Joe. But once the honeymoon period is behind them, things begin to fizzle. Are marriage counseling sessions and serious conversations about their future enough to keep this relationship going?

Personality... loud, brash, and outgoing. If Rhoda has an opinion, you’re going to hear it – it’s a necessary trait to survive in 1970s New York. She can be insecure about her body but treats it with the same sarcastic outlook she brings to the rest of the world. Rhoda’s always entertaining to have around.
