Mazar appeared on a Friends episode in its eighth season ("The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, Part One"). Mazar played "Doreen, the Evil Bitch," a crazed pregnant woman who shares a hospital room with Rachel. From 2000 to 2002 she played Jackie on the television drama That's Life.

My mom had me at 16, and took me every place she went. I remember going on peace marches. She tried to take me to Woodstock--it was pouring rain. It was on my birthday, and I was crying so much in the car they turned the car around and dumped me at my grandmother's house...I had a little attitude.
