Gerrman is an inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary. She is almost always seen crying on the phone next to Piper Chapman when Piper makes phone calls, which becomes a running gag on the show. She is portrayed by Tamara Torres.

Physical Appearance Edit

Gerrman has short brown hair and tan skin. She does not wear the standard Litchfield Penitentiary scrubs, but wears a blue tunic also seen on Taystee in "Don't Make Me Come Back There"; it is unclear whether this is alternative permitted clothing or perhaps nightwear.

Biography Edit

Before Litchfield Edit

Before Gerrman was incarcerated, it is known Gerrman had a son who is now a wrestler.

Season One Edit

The Weeping Woman is first seen in "Lesbian Request Denied", crying at the phone next to Piper.

Season Two Edit

In Season Two, she appears in only two episodes crying on the phone and quoting lines from a book, according to Piper. In "Low Self Esteem City", Gerrman weeps on the phone about how her son is quitting due to the son not being willing to fight a wrestler dubbed "The Black Scarecrow", as explained to Nicky by CO Susan Fischer.

Season Three Edit

In Season Three, she is among the inmates who join the cult centered on fellow inmate Norma Romano. She and Gina invited Norma to go to chapel with them in "Tongue-Tied". The only time she appeared with prison uniform was in "A Tittin' and a Hairin".

Season Four Edit

In Season Four, it is shown that she lives in the Spanish Harlem.

Gerrman is seen eating oysters, which give off a pungent stench. Blanca smells them, and asks if Gerrman is eating them, Blanca takes the pot and dips her finger in and wipes it around her ears to make her smell more.
