Nina Fletcher is portrayed by Joely Fisher.
Lynette's boss at the Partcher & Murphy ad agency. Nina makes it clear to Lynette on her interview that she despises mothers who put their children above everything else. When Lynette brings Penny to work after Tom has a back problem, Lynette hides the baby with the receptionist. However, this does not go as planned. Lynette then brings baby Penny in and multitasks by changing a diaper and delivering a business plan at the same time. Nina's boss is very impressed and welcomes her aboard. Nina is less welcoming and wants Lynette to be dedicated to her work and not her children. One night, Nina is caught in an affair with Stu by Lynette and offers to keep silent about it if Nina would be a little nicer on the job. Unfortunately, Nina fires Stu, and Lynette talks to him and ends up uttering something about a lawsuit. Next time she walks in, the place is in chaos, as it is found out Stu threatened a lawsuit against the firm and they paid him off to settle, forcing people to lose their jobs, including Nina. Nina then explains to Lynette that being nice was one of many luxuries she gave up to keep the firm afloat, and told her that if she thought she wasn't seeing her kids enough before...
Later, when Mary Alice Young makes her episode conclusion voice-over, Nina silently weeps alone while packing her belongings into a cardboard box, as Mary Alice chants, "Why do we try to define people as simply good or simply evil?", showing viewers her inner side.
