Celia is a suburban mother and frenemy of Nancy's. She constantly criticizes her overweight daughter Isabelle, and is stuck in an unhappy marriage for the first season and a half. Celia also has another daughter named Quinn, who, until the end of Season 4, had only appeared in the pilot episode. After that she's been mentioned as having been sent to boarding school after Quinn found out her mother was spying on her and knew she had slept with Silas. Quinn is almost never mentioned anymore. In the Season 4 finale her mother visits her in Mexico, only to get drugged, captured and held for ransom by her. At the beginning of season 5, Celia is eventualy released from the ransom after no one has responded. Throughout the season, Celia's jealousy for Nancy continued to grow. At the end of the season, Celia begins to dress as Nancy and starts to sell marijuana with a new team. After the fifth season, Celia was never heard of ever again. However, on a commentary of the series finale, "It's Time" with the creators, the creators reveal Celia journeyed into Mexico and was gunned down by several Mexican-gangsters.
Celia sends her daughter, Quinn, to Mexico after she finds out Quinn has

Celia runs for city councilwoman and wins after Dean (her husband) forgot to submit Doug's "intent to run" paper.
She wins. Doug gets back at her by making Celia nervous
and forgetful when Celia is holding a broadcasted conference. Celia then
has an affair with Doug and files for divorce with her husband, Dean. This causes a falling out between Doug and Celia because Doug doesn't file divorce with Dana (his wife because he loves her).
Celia is divorcing Dean Hodes, and her career goes downhill
and is in need of money. Dean gets into a motorcycle accident
and Celia and Isabelle take care of him. Celia allows Silas,
Dominic and the team to use Celia's old house for a grow
house. After Doug Wilson steals a cross off the Majestic
church, he stashs it in Celia's house. When the fire breaks out
and everyone evacuates, the police find the cross and the pot
and arrest Celia.
Celia is released from prision and has a chance to clear her name by
spying on Nancy to prove she's a drug dealer. Celia makes amends
with Nancy, who gets her a job at the maternity store Nancy works at.
She becomes addicted to cocaine and goes to rehab. As part of an
amends opperation, Celia goes to Mexico to appoligize to Quinn.
Quinn kidnaps her and holds her hostage for money.
Celia's daughter, Quinn, and her husband attempt to hold her for a ransom. Of which all Celia's known contacts refuse. While attempting to sell her organs, on the black market, they learn that she's had Chemotherapy.Edit
Unfortunately for them, since she's had chemotherapy, her organs are tainted. Quinn storms out on her husband, leaving He and Celia alone. With nowhere to go, and noone to call, attempts to help out around Quinn's husband. Eventually being knocked out and sent back to America, where she ends up Nancy's burden once more.
Living in the garage of Lenny (Nancy's father in-law who hates her and only refers to her as "not francy") and his mother, solely referred to as "Bubby", where Nancy, Doug, Andy, and the children are staying. She finds work selling "You're Pretty" Cosmetics, but fails miserably. Using the confiscated weed from Silas' and Andy's, now busted and defunct, dispensary; Celia tries her hand at low level drug dealing, selling different strains/amounts with different varieties of Cosmetics. Her recent sales momentum garners the attention of her, openly homosexual, supervisor. A mutual lust for money, and vanity brings the two together in a short-lived fling.
Four years have gone by since we have seen Celia, and she is still nowhere to be found. However, when Nancy and Silas journey back to California to see Heylia, who is living with Dean, Dean is worried that Celia is with Nancy.
Celia has not returned, but when the Botwins return to Regrestic, Pam reveals she has not heard from Celia and Nancy in "at least a year" (though it has been at least 6 years, counting the season 7 time jump). Though Celia is never heard from again and her whereabouts are unknown, in a commentary of the series finale, "It's Time", the creators reveal that Celia went down to Mexico and was gunned down by several Mexican-gangsters. They decided to not include this in the finale as they thought it would have ruined the happy reunion-like mood of the episode.
