United States Of Tara: Alters = Real People?

United States Of Tara: Alters = Real People?

So the latest “US of Tara” was a major leap forward in the search for what happened to Tara as a kid. Mimi not only was a woman who lived on Tara’s block as a kid . . . . but is who Alice is modeled after? We know Tara also adopted another real person as an alter, Shoshana . . . . so are T, Buck and Grimmy real people (or animals) too? I’m willing to bet they are.

The previews had Tara and Charmaine meeting Mimi, and Mimi introducing them to someone else . . . her son? Immediately “T” came out remembering who he was. My guess is he did something bad to the girls in Mimi’s basement. In fact the whole episode seemed to be code for it. Charmaine made the comment about Mimi’s basement being a molesting place, Kate’s older man got weirded out realizing she really was a teenager and he shouldn’t be in her room, and Marshall got propositioned by older men at a cruising spot.

There are only two episodes left in the season, which sucks cause the show has finally gotten really good!




  1. Liked Tara this week. Her mom is a piece of work! Also, what a way for Max to wake up – with Buck using him for a punching bag. Not sure where they are going with Kate’s older beau – he seemed kinda creepy until he freaked out about her room. And what’s with bragging about how rich he is? Maybe his way of trolling for young victims?

  2. I think he’s a geek and he brags about his money to try and get women, but really didn’t think she was as young as he thought she was.
