F Is for Family Wiki

Karen Richards, usually referred to as Cutie Pie, was Vic's girlfriend in Season 2 and the main antagonist in the fifth season of F is for Family. She is voiced by Mo Collins.


Biography[]

Cutie Pie was Vic's girlfriend During Season 2. She speaks in a high, airy voice and is not the brightest. She was usually seen wearing a black bathrobe, the only exceptions being her winter clothes and her pink outfit she wore during her birthday party. She and Vic met when he was returning the reindeer he had rented for his Christmas Party, as she was working at the front desk.

Vic often forgot to leave her a key, and she would get locked out of his house. Cutie Pie began to feel neglected by Vic when he started becoming busier at work because of the radio stations' low ratings. One activity she was particularly disappointed to miss out on was baking cupcakes naked. This lead to her beginning to start sleeping around with other people, including Vic's 14-year-old neighbor, Kevin Murphy. She regrets this later, and kicks Kevin out, and tries to pressure him to keep it a secret. Kevin, wracked with guilt for days over the incident, eventually tells the secret through song to Vic and all of the attendants of her birthday party. This lead to a drug-addicted Vic shooting up his house, and the end of their relationship.

It's also discovered by Vic that aside from Kevin, Cutie Pie had slept with many different men and women, including his friends, Howlin' Hank and Skeeball.

Vic had a large nude portrait of her in his house, which was later stolen by Lex and Bolo amidst the chaos of the shooting. When Vic came across the painting in Bolo's garage, he viciously destroyed it.

Statutory Rape Incident[]

Due to Kevin's young age, Cutie Pie's actions towards him were illegal, as she took advantage of his naivety, sexual inexperience, and state of arousal. While it's true she did not know Kevin was 14, she did know he was exceptionally young based on her question; "How old are you?" Based on the fact that she lived next door to the Murphys' for around two months, she most likely knew Kevin was a teenager, and held the responsibility of asking him his age. On a side note, she was only led to ask Kevin his age after they’d had sex and he’d made an especially naive comment “Did I put it in the wrong place?” So it is possible she believed him to be at least 18.

It is also made clear by Kevin several times that she was the one who initiated sexual contact. When the two argue over it, she tries to place the blame on to Kevin because of the fact that he had an erection. Interestingly, her telling Kevin that Vic would be upset with both of them if he found out what happened, is a textbook example tactic of ensuring silence from a victim. By making Kevin believe he was responsible for what happened, she successfully guilted him into keeping the incident a secret (at least temporarily.) Based on her reaction when he told her his age, it seems she knew he wasn't actually at fault. (of course, whether she knew how Vic would see it isn't known.) Either way, her treatment of him after the incident was emotionally abusive and manipulative, and she clearly cared more about protecting her own reputation than she did about how her actions would affect Kevin, thus proving her selfishness. On another side note, she was right about Vic being angry with both of them, if only at first. Vic came to forgive Kevin as he had been in Kevin’s place around the same age or even younger, as he once said he had sex with a lifeguard at 14 and presumably he received his first handjob from a woman in a toll booth before that.

Pregnancy & Motherhood[]

In "Baby, Baby, Baby", Vic was surprised to come across her, giving birth in the hospital. He was even more surprised to know that the baby she was having came from him, after he had unprotected sex with her 9 months ago. Although, she tells Vic that she doesn’t plan on keeping the baby, he seems insistent on taking the child. Vic, not wanting to be an absentee father/husband, got back together with Cutie Pie again and swore to take care of their baby together.
