Miranda Nickleby is a sleazy woman who wants money from April Malloy. She told her a story saying her husband, Paul (dead now), cheated on her. She has a son, Scottie, who is biracial, presumably because Miranda and Paul made him, if the story is true. However, there's a greater possibility the story was completely fabricated, and that Miranda is a con artist.
She is played by Kate Beahan.
