Tina Kennard is Bette Porter's long-term on-and-off partner and eventual ex-wife.
The L WordEdit
Tina and Bette eventually got married, though the marriage lasted only a couple of years before they divorced. Though they remained on good terms for their daughter, Angie, they lived separately.
When Bette's campaign to become mayor of Los Angeles was scandalized by her affair with a married woman and a subsequent confrontation between Bette and the woman's husband, Angie called Tina, and she immediately went to Bette to help.
