On the Mom episode “Diabetic Lesbians and a Blushing Bride,” Marjorie (Mimi Kennedy) announces that she’s getting married to Victor. Christy and Bonnie throw her a bachelorette party and invite recovering drug addict teen Jodi (Emily Osment) and Victor’s sister, Anya. At the party, when Anya learns about Marjorie’s torrid past, she says she won’t attend the wedding. Christy and Bonnie employ a sneaky tactic to get Anya to the church on time.
Anya is portrayed by Rhea Perlman. She’s best known for her roles as Carla on Cheers and Zena, Louie’s girlfriend on Taxi. After Cheers, Perlman starred in her own sitcom Pearl in 1997 with Taxi co-star Carol Kane, and she had a recurring role on Kirstie with her Cheers co-star Kirstie Alley. Mom airs Thursdays at 9pm on CBS.
