Abby Donovan

Ray's wife Abby enjoys the spoils of Ray's success in LA but maintains a deep sense of commitment to her family. She desperately wants to get out of the Valley and into the neighborhoods, social circles, and schools of the true Hollywood elite, even though this South Boston woman often feels out of her league. Abby is weary of turning a blind eye to Ray's philandering and the unusual demands of his job, and she tries everything she can think of to achieve happiness.
