Roberta (Carlease Burke)
On the American remake of Shameless, Roberta and Monica were revealed to be in a relationship when series protagonist, Monica’s ex-husband Frank, tricked Monica into living with him and their children again for financial gain. However, Monica declared that she and Roberta intended to get married and the two of them tried to leave with her youngest son Liam, but her eldest daughter Fiona asked them to give Liam back and they did so.
In Season 2 Monica went back to Frank to support him when his mother died. This upset Roberta who told Fiona she wanted nothing more to do with Monica and living with her was draining both her spirit and her bank account. Roberta then left the Gallagher house and disappeared off the show.
