As for Susie Greene, Ms. Essman thinks she is misunderstood.
“People think she’s a yelling, angry, crazy woman, when the truth is it’s justified, she’s provoked,” Ms. Essman said. “I love Susie Greene — she is so freeing. I analyze things from every which way. She just reacts without any kind of censor. Everything is an indignity, and she is absolutely sure of herself in every single response.”
