Jamie Kenney is basically an amalgam of Marianne Dashwood from Sense & Sensibility, Karen Walker from Will & Grace, and Tom Hagen from The Godfather: a witty, sassy free-spirit who, alas, is just not a wartime consigliere. She has two children, and she talks about them a lot on Facebook, but in a totally charming, not annoying way.
