This name makes me think of True Blood...the actress was named Rutina though...her character Tara was one of the most incredibly annoying characters to ever be on television...I am absolutely sure that Rutina Wesley is a wonderful person in real life but that character was the most unlikable person. I don't think it was her fault seemed to be how the character was written that was the problem.
