Alan. Sometimes, if I ever think about coming home to you, I start crying in my car!
~ Judith's first words on the show, declaring her reluctance to return to her ex-husband Alan

Judith is the cold-blooded, loathsome, cruel, vindictive, and ruthless and ex-wife of Alan Harper on the show Two and a Half Men.

She was portrayed by Marin Hinkle who also played Jane Hartley in The Haunting of Molly Hartley.


Judith is the "Ultimate Ex-Wife from Hell". She is vindictive, wicked, irrational, manipulative, standoffish, cold-hearted, diabolical spiteful, unfriendly, violent, and cruel with a deep hatred of her ex-husband Alan. Judith is a hopelessly miserable, displeased, and vituperative woman who refuses to acknowledge her own moral failings and blames Alan and everyone she hates for being the way she is.


Judith's activities on the show revolve around making her Alan's life as miserable as possible because of all the years she lost because of him. This includes taking his house, his money and completely destroying his self respect. all of which she succeeds in because of her powerful lawyer and the knowledge that if Alan stands up for himself he'll only suffer more.

She plays a major role in the season eleven episode "Cab Fare and a Bottle of Penicillin", when Alan showed up at her house just to talk about old times and after a night of drinking they end up engaged. However, in the end, Judith ends the engagement after Walden explains to her that Alan had proposed to Lindsey the same night he proposed to her (however he did not explain that she didn't accept Alan's proposal as she is now engaged to Larry). Angered by this, she kicks Alan in the groin. It is unknown if she and Herb have officially divorced or are just separated. In the final episode, Alan calls her thinking that Charlie is going to kill him and he tells her that she was his own true love. She tells him she has another call and hangs up on him.
