Early Life

As a teenager Bonnie began drinking at 15 years of age. She was in the foster care system being bounced around from house to house when she ran off with Alvin, she became pregnant and had Christy but he abandoned them at the hospital and Bonnie almost put Christy up for adoption. A nice Jewish couple was going to adopt her, but Bonnie backed out at the last minute. From then on, she tried her best to raise Christy, but Christy ended up raising herself as Bonnie did drugs and came home late. A few years later Bonnie tracked down Christy.

Season 1

After Bonnie tracked down Christy she tried to fit into her life, no matter how much she annoyed Christy; who is newly sober.

In "Big Sur and Strawberry Lube" [08] Bonnie thinks she's pregnant however a visit to the Gynaecologist reveals she's not pregnant and all the symptoms she mistook for being pregnant (big boobs, no periods) are from starting menopause, to which, she understandably, got very pissed at as she walked out of the doctors room, to which, made Christy act like she doesn't know her.

  • Blue Eyes
  • Pierced Ears, different earrings, sometimes none.

But ultimately, their relationship has been more supportive to one another.
