Kara and Mary Jane go back a long time, and Kara is the lead producer for Mary Jane's show. The two are so close that when they fight, it cuts deep. Busy with a huge workload, Kara is great at her job, and as a friend to Mary Jane, she doesn't let their friendship influence what is best for them professionally. Recently divorced after 15 years, Kara, who is still prey to the charms of her ex-husband, is brought to life by actress Lisa Vidal. She also struggles daily with the pull of being a career-driven woman trying to stay present in her children’s lives.
