Sheila Gallagher (previously Jackson) is an agoraphobic, Frank Gallagher’s first main love interest and a bit ‘nutty’ about shoes. While it’s difficult for her to even think about leaving the house, she invites Frank into her home with open arms to take advantage of her cooking, disability checks and bedroom hospitality.
Her clown-obsessed husband Eddie (that still resides in their basement, but then commits suicide) isn’t making things any easier for her while she tries to cope with her phobias, Frank and raising their daughter Karen Jackson.
According to her would be ex husband Eddie, she takes pleasure in sexual activities and taking control, something in which Eddie found no pleasure.
