Character history

Sometime in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Michael and Amanda began a relationship. At the time, she worked as a stripper and later a prostitute, with Michael using the gains from his heists to pay for plastic surgery. Eventually, the two get married and have two children: Tracey and Jimmy. Early on, Michael, Amanda, and their children had a seemingly good relationship; however, their relationship became strained in 2004 when Michael arranged for an "off-the-books plea deal" with FIB Agent Dave Norton after a heist gone wrong without consulting her, although he claims that it was to protect her and the children. The family moves to Rockford Hills under Agent Norton's watch. She openly cheats on Michael; however, Michael doesn't initially confront her about it as he cheats on her as well. She eventually became a financial burden on her husband through her shopping, leading Michael to return to a life of crime.

In Marriage Counseling, Michael finds her wearing a towel in the upstairs hallway and storms into their bedroom where he finds their tennis instructor Kyle Chavis in his underwear. In a rage, he chases Kyle down with his gardener's pickup truck and pulls his house down from the cliff, only to realize that it belonged to the mistress of Mexican gangster Martin Madrazo (this, among other things, lures Michael back into robbery). In The Good Husband, Amanda reluctantly calls on Michael for help when she is arrested for shoplifting (the player can choose whether or not to save her).

In Did Somebody Say Yoga?, he agrees to practice yoga with Amanda and her instructor Fabien LaRouche. Michael becomes irate when one of their yoga poses resembles a dry hump, attempts to push Fabien in the pool, lands in it himself, and Amanda tells Michael that she is leaving. Immediately after, he takes Jimmy to meet his drug dealer at Burger Shot; Jimmy takes the opportunity to trick Michael into drinking purple drank, steal his car and leave him behind. Jimmy distorts the situation to Amanda, causing her to take him and Tracey and leave Michael completely alone in their Rockford Hills home.

Amanda and her children live with Fabien for a short while, but while Fabien is described as an "ideal sexual partner", Amanda quickly bores of his pretentious personality; also, Jimmy and Tracey grow to dislike Fabien. Sometime after The Paleto Score, Amanda calls Franklin Clinton, asking about her husband. Franklin suggests that she should call Michael; however, Amanda is still mad at him. A visit from Jimmy spurs Michael into winning Amanda back. He confronts them at a Bean Machine cafe, where Amanda is so dissatisfied with Fabien that she requests of Michael to "just hit him, please!". Michael knocks Fabien onto the floor with a nearby woman's laptop, and after Michael reclaims Tracey from Lazlow Jones, they reunite and agree to family therapy. After a "cathartic" screaming match in front of Dr. Friedlander, Amanda emerges ready to move back in with Michael. However, this is short-lived as she and Tracey narrowly survive an assassination attempt by Devin Weston and his Merryweather mercenaries, and move out of the house again for their own safety.

Should the player decide to kill Michael, she tells Franklin to stay away from her and her children, knowing that he was involved in her husband's death.

Trivia

  • She has a profile on www.hushsmush.com, where she lists her age as 43.
  • Amanda was a stripper before she met Michael, according to a story told to Wade by Trevor during their trip to Los Santos.
  • Amanda's habit of cheating on Michael may extend at least as far back as the mid 90s according to dialogue in Reuniting the Family, as Jimmy's third grade teacher is mentioned in a long list of men she is implied to have cheated on Michael with.
  • Reuniting the Family also suggests she slept with the "juice guy", dog walker, garbage collector, Michael's proctologist, Jesse from Vespucci Beach, and at least one other "hippie bum".
  • The license plate of Amanda's Sentinel reads "KRYST4L". Considering she doesn't smoke crystal meth, it can be assumed that this was her stripper name.
