In The Conners episode “Rage Against the Machine,” Dan (John Goodman) gets injured while covering his son D.J.’s (Michael Fishman) vending machine route. Meanwhile, Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) gets emotionally wounded when her niece Becky (Lecy Goranson) turns to Jackie’s nemesis Rita Silver for personal advice.
Jackie’s nemesis Rita Silver is portrayed by Cheryl Texiera. She’s known for her roles on Disney’s Girl Meets World (Katy Hart), It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (Jane Ponderosa, SEE LINK ABOVE), and on her web series Confessions of a Bartender (Cheryl) and Confessions of a Bitter(sweet) Actress (Cheryl), among others. Fun fact: Texiera is also a dancer: she was on Season 1 of So You Think You Can Dance (see video clip below). The Conners airs Tuesdays at 8 pm on ABC, right before The Kids Are Alright.
