My Name Is Earl

My Name Is Earl is an American television comedy series.

Starring: Jason Lee, Ethan Suplee, Jaime Pressly, Eddie Steeples, and Nadine Velazquez.

Joy Farrah Darville Hickey Turner (played by Jaime Pressly), Earl's first ex-wife, now married to Darnell, is the antagonist of the show. She is immature, mean-spirited, selfish and abusive. She tricked Earl into marrying her when she became pregnant with another man's child, then had an affair with Darnell while she and Earl were still married. However, she is very protective of her family. Joy is the mother of two boys, Dodge and Earl Jr. She is openly scornful of Earl's List. She has a strong dislike for Catalina, although ends up saving her life in the fourth season. She drives a Subaru BRAT painted with the American flag. Her frequent catchphrases are "Oh snap!", "What the Hell", and she frequently calls both Earl and Randy "Dummy". In the episode "Pinky" it is revealed that Joy and Randy were childhood sweethearts who knew each other as 'Pinky' and 'Skipper.' Eventually Joy became a surrogate mother for her estranged half sister, doing so partly out of love for the sister (during the sister's pursuit of employment as a pro wrestler) and partly as a ploy to evoke sympathy from a jury that would try Joy for inadvertently kidnapping an appliance-store employee. Joy subsequently averted her "third strike" (third felony, which would have meant a lifelong prison sentence) when the man she kidnapped died from a fold up bed malfunction, which then allowed Earl to confess to the crime as a way to prevent Joy from being split from her family. Earl accepted the much shorter sentence given him by rationalizing it as karmic retribution for the crimes he had gotten away with. Joy believed throughout the show that Little Chubby was the father of Dodge and Darnell was the father of Earl Jr. The paternity of Joy's children was not revealed, due to the series being cancelled.
