Veronica's Story Plot
She appears in Season 6 as a replacement for Masiela Lusha, who left the show at the end of Season 5. However, she has a viable and useful storyline that ties in with the rest of the Lopez family. Her father, Ray, was a con man and was only ever concerned about money. When he comes back in an episode later on, claiming that he's changed, he successfully tricks Veronica into believing him before convincing her to spend half of her inheritance on a "hand bag business" in Miami. He is later caught trying to run off with the check by George who says to him, "I knew you would run off, so I canceled the check. And just in case, I signed it Carlos Santana". After he leaves, Veronica is crushed that her father lied to her, but with support from George, she goes to college to pursue her own career in design.
In George Nieces A New Media Room, Veronica moves in with the Lopez family again after one of her relatives started contesting the will. Veronica has started dating her college professor, Mike, when saying she was tired of dating guys her age since they play "head games" and she only ends up "getting hurt" by them. While visiting Benny for her birthday in jail, the latter is able to deduce Veronica is seeing a married man and she has to confirm it. Afterwards, George and Angie express concern for her for dating an older married man, Veronica insists it was only casual and not serious. This, in which, is proved wrong when Mike arrives at her house, declaring he's left his wife for her so they could be together. When she decides to break up with him, he begins to stalk her while begging her to take him back. She later catches him in her room, waiting for her to come home. This resulting in George punching him and fending him off while Veronica and Angie call the police, arresting him (and getting George's big screen TV destroyed in the process). In the end of the episode, Veronica gets a restraining order against Mike and gets punished by George and Angie for dating a married man who was twice her age by giving up her diamond bracelet Mike had given her to pay for George's destroyed plasma screen TV. They also learned that she gave her number to the firefighter who just left and he was only a few months sober. Not wanting a repeat of what has happened they immediately wash off the number he left on her arm.
