In case you don’t know, Carrie Heffernan (played by Leah Remini ) is the wife of Doug Heffernan (Kevin James) on the long-running sitcom The King of Queens (1998-2007). I used the character’s name in the topic header because that’s really who I have in mind, more so than the actress who plays her (also The King of Queens is when Leah was really hot, especially in the first few seasons or so). I never really watched the show much when it originally aired, but caught up with it in reruns in syndication. It’s a pretty funny show, actually. Anyway, on the show, Carrie is (usually) portrayed as being a real biatch. Characters on the show have said how afraid they are of her, and she has been known to physically abuse Doug on occasion if angry enough. Also, Doug is usually too much of a wimp to confront anyone, so he always gets Carrie to do it. For example, one time they were at a movie theater and were looking for a place to sit, and they found some empty seats, but this nerdy guy said he was saving them for his friends. Carrie was about to say something, but she and Doug both promised to change their bad habits (for him, to stop over-eating, and for her, to stop being a, well, bitch). Anyway they get stuck sitting in the front row, and they then realize how miserable they are not being their true selves, so they decide to go back and sit in those saved seats. Then later, these three big, tough, muscle-bound guys come over and say, “Hey! Those are our seats!” and Doug looks over at Carrie and says, “They’re all yours!” and Carrie looks at them with a big grin on her face. You don’t see what happens next, but of course I imagined Carrie beating the crap out of them, perhaps throwing – or yes, finger-flicking – them through a wall into the next theater or something. :evil:

This is a clip from an episode titled “Inner Tube”, where a sick Doug starts hallucinating that’s he’s in different TV shows. One of them is a take-off on an old Looney Tunes cartoon, and you see a cartoon Carrie smashing a cartoon Doug over the head with various objects, such as an anvil and a piano. (kinda fits in with the cartoon-ish super violence thread, too)



and here are some photos of Leah in her prime:
