Vivian Burnett Whitmore was Mickey Malone's former girlfriend in the late 1920s/early 1930s (a picture found in his house was taken in 1928, and their relationship was nearing its end when he committed the The Hole-in-the-Floor Gold Heist in 1931). Despite their twenty year age difference, and Vivian's disapproval of his gangster life, they dated for five years. Jeff Akers thinks her name used to be Vivian Burnett.
In 2002, Nancy calls Vivian to ask her some questions about Mickey Malone. She ends up sending Nancy a key to get into the speakeasy. She likes Birch Beer, and Mickey would always keep in on tap for her in the speakeasy.
She is also friends with Eustacia Andropov. Eustacia (who is 96 in 2001) is 5 years older than Vivian, meaning Vivian was born in 1910.
