Dallas Royce

Played by Cheryl Hines


It's possible DALLAS ROYCE has never seen the inside of a diner, flown with a layover, or spoken to a mechanic. But while she might take this for granted, she never lets it go to her head. She cares deeply about her fellow man, as evidenced by her membership in the Neighborhood Association, PTA, and Chatswin Country Club in addition to her charities: Airbeds for the Homeless, Airbeds for the Elderly, and the Altmans. She is always impeccably dressed in the hippest haute couture and looking to help others hone their fashion sense in kind.
