Grew Up… in Tucson, Arizona. Romy and her best friend Michele attended Sagebrush High School and they were inseparable, even attending prom together when they couldn’t find dates. But unfortunately, the two were the subject of bullying from the popular girl clique known as the “A-group” that was led by cheerleader Christie Masters.
Living… in Los Angeles, California. Romy and Michele have lived together in an apartment there for the past 10 years, but they haven’t made much progress in terms of careers. The two friends are stuck in a rut when one of their former classmates, Heather Mooney, informs them about their upcoming high school reunion.
Profession… cashier at a Jaguar dealership, where a mechanic named Ramon constantly hits on her. She’s unhappy with her less-than-glamorous life, so when she hears about the reunion, she’s determined to scrounge up a boyfriend and an interesting job in order to impress her classmates. However, it's clear that Romy isn't the sharpest tool in the shed: "Actually, I have been trying this new fat-free diet I invented. All I've had to eat for the past six days are gummy bears, jelly beans, and candy corn."
Interests… fashion. Romy designs fun, bright outfits for her and Michele to wear, but her passion is only a hobby for now.
Relationship Status… single, but looking to change that. She used to be in love with popular jock (and Christie’s boyfriend) Billy Christensen, but he never returned her affections. Billy will be at the event, and Romy hopes her newfound “success” will impress him.
Challenge… convincing her and Michele’s classmates that their lives are exciting and glamorous. After failing to actually make better lives for themselves in the weeks before the reunion, Romy and Michele come up with an alternate plan – they’ll say they invented Post-it notes and pretend to be successful businesswomen.
Personality… unambitious, bold, and fun. Compared to Michele, Romy is somewhat motivated – at least she has a job – but Romy still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She is very concerned with her outward appearance, and cares deeply about what others think of her. Romy can’t seem to let go of the past; she still wants to impress the A-group after all these years. She needs to appreciate their friendship instead of worrying about the opinion of the girls who bullied them in high school.
