Stacy Barrett is an aspiring model/actress and Deb/Jane's best friend. She is the only person Jane told that she is Deb. Stacy is a very sweet and optimistic girl. She is also very accepting of other and has a generally sunny disposition. She is oftentimes judged as a dumb blonde but although she may not be the sharpest crayon in the box, she has shown great initiative and determination as well as unexpected wisdom. Her interest in fashion and beauty has proven to be helpful on more than one occasion. She is a hard worker and longs to be a parent, a desire that eventually prompts her to decide to become a mother with the help of a donor. She also has serious character development, which proves to be great towards the end of the show. Despite the character development she still continuously cheats, kisses her best friends exes and more.
Stacy grew up and went to school with Deb. She attended ballet lessons with Deb's mom alongside Deb.
Stacy is trying to help Deb get used to life as Jane while having her live with her. Stacy also had a flirtationship with Fred, which ended because he got sent back to Heaven and her memory of him was erased.
(Fred manages to come back to earth and) win over Stacey again. Stacy becomes Fred's girlfriend.
Fred tells Stacy he is Jane's guardian angel. He told her he had to leave and go back to heaven and that she will forget every memory with him. Now the new guardian angel for Jane arrives
Since that event, Stacy learned that after she hinted the truth that Grayson has started to have feelings for Jane, but was too late to convince him that she was "making up" the whole story. She also had her memories of Fred wiped away after he told her everything about what happened, and he had to return to heaven. Meeting a woman named Nikki, Stacy was encouraged to go into business with Nikki opening a unique bakery, after Stacy accidentally crossed a pie recipe with a cake recipe. Jane was suspicious of Nikki after finding a history of her repeatedly being accused of fraud, but Stacy didn't believe her. She soon realises that Deb/Jane was right to suspect Nikki the whole time. She turns out to be a con artist who rips off Stacy's money and leaves town (but eventually gets caught), but Jane enourages Stacy to continue her dream of opening a "pakery."
Stacy would later find trouble when a "Patent Troll" named Jonah Pierce claimed that she stole his ideas for the pake and sued her in court. However, Grayson was able to save Stacy when he suggested a "pake-off" between both of them, which Judge Lyford (Star Jones) supported. During the taste test, it exposes Mr. Pierce's scam when she saw his pake crumble and it proves that he had never baked nor invented a pake in his life. This was evident when Stacy pointed out that his pake was raw in the middle and overbaked at the bottom. She proved the pake was her idea when she told everyone that a cake and pie crust bake at different temperatures, even admitting it took three tries for her to figure it out. Judge Lyford rules in Stacy's favor and gives her the patent for the pake.
In Season 5, Stacy becomes unhappy with her Pakery business because of all the time it takes up and the disappointing profits. She goes to a business convention to get advice from a business mogul, Barbara Corcoran, and is discouraged when Barbara tells her she's not fit to run a business.
Later, Barbara visits Stacy at her home. She tells her she finds the Pakery promising and says she wants to buy her out. Stacy goes to Jane for advice, and Jane tells her to do what she thinks is right. Stacy says she knew Jane would say that, and shows her a check, revealing that she had taken Barbara's offer.
In Cheaters, Stacy starts acting strangely, so Jane has her new guardian angel, Paul, spy on her to figure out what was going on. Stacy is meeting with a woman for lunch. Jane first suspects Stacy is making a new best friend because Jane hadn't been there for her.
Stacy goes undercover as a prospective mother for a school to help with Jane's case, and asks the principal on the school's opinion on same-sex parents, which leads Paul and Jane to think Stacy is a lesbian and the woman she was meeting for lunch was her lover.
Jane talks to Stacy and tries tell her that she is okay with Stacy being a lesbian, but as it turns out, Stacy was acting strangely because she wanted to be a mother, and was planning on using IVF/artificial insemmination to become pregnant. The woman Stacy had met for lunch knew about the IVF process, having used it herself to have her children. Stacy was afraid to tell Jane because she wasn't sure how she would react, but Jane is supportive.
In the next episode, Stacy has begun looking for sperm donors, and Teri helps her. Stacy cares a lot about the sperm donor's appearance, but Teri tries to look for donors who are intelligent.
Eventually they think they've found the perfect donor: a handsome genius. Unfortunately, that donor was "out of stock." Teri manages to track him down anyway and sets up a meeting with her and Stacy. The meeting is going pretty well, but then the "perfect" donor ignores a call from his mother. Stacy decides she doesn't want to use the donor's sperm, and later tells Jane she wants to have a close relationship with her child.
Stacy decides she wants to use sperm from someone she knows instead of a stranger, and begins to look through her contacts for past exes who would be good donors.
In Fool for Love, Stacy narrows her list down to three possible donors and invites them to a cocktail party to access who the best donor would be, but after two of them cancel, she needs two more donors. She uses her alternate donor, and also asks Hank the bailiff to the party.
At the party, Stacy has a checklist listing her top six donor traits: Kind, stable, ambitious, intelligent, funny, and attractive. As the party goes on, Stacy crosses off every one of her possible donors. Later, Owen comes over to talk to Jane about a case, and as Stacy watches him, she begins to check off her checklist, revealing that she's considering using Owen as a donor. At the end of the episode, Stacy tells Jane she wants to use Owen as her donor.
In Miss Congeniality, Stacy and Jane are fighting after Stacy told Jane she wanted to use Owen as her donor. Jane is upset because if she and Owen got married, it would be weird if Stacy was raising Owen's child. Stacy just wants Jane's blessing, and says she doesn't really think Jane and Owen are getting back together, which angers Jane, who angrily and sarcastically says that Stacy can have her blessing. Stacy then goes to ask Owen.
She tells him that he has all the traits she's looking for in a donor, and he'd have no resposibility or obligation to the child or child support, but Owen asks what Jane thinks. Stacy says that she has Jane's blessing, but later she tells Jane that Owen said no. Stacy and Jane make up then, although Stacy is still very upset, and ices several cakes to help her get through it.
Jane goes to talk to Owen and says that if the reason he doesn't want to be Stacy's donor is because he's thinking about getting back together with Jane, she's ready for that, but if it's not, he should help Stacy start her family.
At the end of the episode, Stacy goes to Jane and tells her that Owen agreed to be her sperm donor, and Jane hugs her, although she seems upset.
In Trust Me, Stacy learns she has gotten pregnant from the insemmination and is thrilled. She goes to tell Owen the news but before she can, he gives her an ammendment to their sperm donor contract and tells her to look over it with an attorney.
The ammendment says that Owen wants his identity to be kept a secret from Stacy's child until they are sixteen. Stacy is upset because she doesn't want to have to lie to her child if they ask who their father is. Jane tells Stacy to talk to Owen.
Owen says he just wanted to be the sperm donor, not the child's father. Stacy is dismayed but signs the ammendment. Later, she visits Owen to give him the signed ammendment. The two make up and end up kissing.
In the following episode, Stacy tells Owen that the kiss couldn't mean anything because she didn't want to hurt Jane but after another kiss, they decide to go on a date to see where things go.
During the date, Stacy says they can't officially start dating until she talks to Jane. Unfortunately, Jane, who was at the same restaurant they were, sees them eating together and confronts them, getting upset to the point of being speechless.
Later on, Stacy and Jane argue, with Jane calling Stacy selfish, and Stacy berating Jane for holding on to Owen after kissing Grayson at the wedding. Stacy later apologizes for hurting Jane but refuses to stop seeing Owen because she feels she owes it to herself to see where things lead. Jane says she will never forgive Stacy if she starts dating her ex-fiance, to which Stacy responds that she knows. Stacy then leaves with a suitcase and goes to stay at Owen's.
In One Shot, Stacy and Jane are no longer speaking and consider each other ex-best friends. They each figure out the plan Owen and Paul had put together to get them to make up, but both arrive at their current nail salon for manicures. Stacy again apologizes, but Jane says that if she feels like she and Owen could be something, who is she to stand in their way and gives Stacy her blessing.
In Guess Who's Coming?, Stacy and Owen attend a yoga class and Stacy is humiliated when her yoga pants turn out to be see-through. Owen contacts someone from the company where the pants were made and gets Stacy an apology and a gift card, but Stacy still feels humiliated, so Owen takes Stacy to yoga class again, but this time takes the attention off her by wearing Stacy's see-through yoga pants himself.
Stacy is touched, but breaks things off with Owen because she's worried she might end up hurting him or her child in the end because of her track record with relationships.

She originally wanted her to lose weight, but reconsidered when she learned that she would leave her because her newly gained intelligence. Stacy has helped Jane in several important law cases.
