Candice Bergen is a Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning actress and former fashion model who serves as archenemy-slash-best friend to Karen Walker.
Prior to her appearance on season 6, Candice's rivalry with Karen has been mentioned in Women and Children First, Heart Like a Wheelchair and Swimming from Cambodia. Karen mentions that they often play humiliating pranks on each other for sport.
Karen and Jack meet Candice at a restaurant where they exchange banters including Candice's recent movies and Karen's "decaying facade". When Jack refuses to participate on a prank, Karen and Candice prank him by pretending to be choking on a balloon.
