That's so Boulder!

Bethany

Bethany is Grant’s unmarried, high-flying, quasi-aristocratic, super hippie mother who seems to keep collecting children even in the depths of middle age. Except for her immense wealth, she is the diametric opposite of Gordon, and for that matter Grant. As the quintessential self-appointed Boulder matriarch, and archnemisis of the Furies, she is in one way or another involved in most everything that happens in the town. Although no one will admit it publicly, it is entirely possible that Bethany is Chip’s aunt.
