Cynthia Cooper is your mom’s best friend. She is married to Richard and they have two children – Ralph (your best friend) and Kimberley.

Her husband’s parents died a few years ago and left him an inheritance. They used the money to buy a fixer-upper with a large plot of land as he is a keen DIY enthusiast.

She recently developed an interest in keeping fit and enjoys the looks men give her when she’s wearing skimpy outfits. Your mom says she’s probably going through a mid-life crisis and worries she might have an affair.

She is Victoria’s younger sister.
