Good Girls season three recently arrived on Netflix with fans quickly binging the new episodes of the NBC series. Fans are keen to know more about the cast away from their roles on the show, particularly if Ruby Hill actress Retta is married in real-life. Express.co.uk has the lowdown on the American actress, who is also know for her work on long-running comedy series Parks and Recreation.
Is Good Girls star Retta married?
Retta – real name Marietta Sangai Sirleaf – has impressed audiences with her performance as down on her luck housewife Ruby in Good Girls.
In the show, Ruby and her friends Beth Boland (played by Christina Hendricks) and Annie Marks (Mae Whitman) rob a store to make ends meet.
However, they seem to stumble into something much bigger, plunging them into danger with a drug cartel and paving the way for a life of crime.
Ruby is married to Stan Hill (Reno Wilson) in the show and the couple have two children.
There is much tension between the pair after Stan figures out Ruby robbed grocery store Fine & Frugal to pay for their daughter’s kidney transplant.
But they have stayed together with Stan helping to cover up Ruby’s shady dealings as the show has gone on.
Season three saw the couple really struggling with Ruby’s criminal endeavours and Retta admitted it was hard to film these moments.
She told Variety: “I literally have a problem when I read that, you know, we’re gonna have issues in the episode.
“I’m like, ‘Ugh, I don’t want to have to do it,’ because I get anxiety having to perform it because I want there to always be love with the Hills — or, as some people call us, ‘Stuby.’”
Retta continued: “[But] as [creator Jenna Bans] always says, ‘It makes for good TV.’ … You have to have some conflict. That’s what stories are about essentially.
“So, it’s hard when the conflict’s gotta be in the Hill household for me. … I like the show, I like the storytelling and so I tend to get worked up about it anyway.”
From the looks of it, season four could really see the pressure mounting in Stan and Ruby’s marriage, which could tip them over the edge.
In reality though, actress Retta is private and very few details are known about her personal life.
A scroll through her social media feeds reveal little about whether she is married or dating anyone.
She has previously shared some snaps of her young nephews on Instagram whom she is close to.
The main images on her Instagram page relate to her work as an actress.
She even posted a photo in 2019 of her Parks and Recreation character Donna Meagle in her wedding dress, marking five years since the character had tied the knot.
The star told her 644,000 Instagram followers: “Five years ago today. • It took a village to get #RegalMeagle ready for her marriage to Joe. • #DonnaAndJoe #ParksAndMuhfuhkinRec.
“The honeymoon? I wore the red thing . . . He deserved to see me in the red thing.”
Retta previously said on panel show Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! how she’d once dated a man from Georgia.
He had nicknamed her “Retta” because apparently this is what her name sounded like from where he was from.
