Richie’s mother, Regina, is mostly a two-trick pony character. Much like Dot, who loves dots and has many zany aunts and uncles, or Lotta, who eats a lot and is strong, most stories about Regina involve her doing one of two things.
- Charity. Regina is constantly going to a charity ball, having a meeting with women involving charity, or donating things to charity.
- Jewelry. Regina is always getting new jewels or doing something ridiculous involving her current jewels. Here are some examples below!
Wearing a giant diamond as a necklace is not recommended for us normal folks.
Perhaps not wearing jewels, high heels, tiaras, etc. could be a fine plan whilst walking.
Who doesn’t throw last year’s jewelry down a hole into the earth?
But, she’s not always a complete ninny. I’ve always loved this story because it involves Regina actually being fairly competent, somewhat athletic, and just kind of a fun mom! And of course, charity and jewels. Enjoy!
Who knew Regina could be so fun? What did you think?
Are there any issues where Richie’s mom, Maday, Irona or gloria sneeze?
Is it true that Regina Rich’s maiden name is Regina van Dough and Richie’s uncle Reginald (father of Reggie” is her older brother?
I always thought that Regina and Vanessa van Dough were sisters who both married well like the Gabor sisters.
Regina may overdo it with jewelry, but her charity events are wonderful. She is also a wonderful mother to Richie.
