Bridget Erin "Beege" Hennessy (1986-present) (Portrayed by Kaley Cuoco) is the beautiful, dim-witted oldest child of Cate and Paul's three kids.


Initially, Bridget is the the stereotype of the blonde, popular bombshell who is interested in her looks, teenage boys and little else. She has many times mentioned she wears thong underwear. While dating Donny Doyle, Bridget once complained that all she had left was thongs having worn her "only real ... underwear to church". Sometimes she has a deep or intelligent moment, but these are few and far between.

After her father dies, she starts to mature more; this was most likely because of the fact that the last words she ever said to him were "I hate you" because he wouldn't let her take the car on the morning of his death, and she feels guilty that she never got the chance to take it back. She has often proven to be very caring toward her family. Bridget is often seen butting heads with her younger sister Kerry because of their being the opposite of each other. Bridget is the happy but ditzy sister, with Kerry being the sarcastic but very intelligent sister.
