Rita Loud (or Mom) is the mother of the Loud children. Rita is a supporting character in the first season, and a major character from Season 2 and onwards.


Rita is caring towards her children, but is not afraid to punish them if they go too far. She and her husband act playfully romantic towards each other (an example of this is when they skinny dip into the hotel pool), though she is apparently more level-headed than him. An example of this is when she's concerned about Lincoln playing video games too much and tells him to do some sport outside as shown in "The Loudest Yard".

She dreams to be a novelist but initially seems to lack a creative side, as she wrote a story about a bored dental assistant talking to her fish before being inspired by Lincoln to write about a thrill seeker with white hair, himself.


Rita wears a pink shirt with a white collar and cuffs, and purple pants. She has big blonde hair and white earrings. She also wears blue eye shadow and red lipstick. She also wears black low tops, similar to Sue. She has bags under her eyes, just like Lincoln.

  • Rita is voiced by Jill Talley, who is known for voicing Karen Plankton on SpongeBob SquarePants, another show by Nickelodeon.
  • Of the two Loud parents, she has made less appearances than Lynn Sr. has.
  • Rita's entire face was never shown during the first season. It was revealed along with Lynn Sr.'s in the Season 2 premiere, "11 Louds a Leapin'".
    • Before "11 Louds a Leapin'", most of Rita's face was already revealed by "Cereal Offender".
    • This seems to be parodied at the beginning of "Suite and Sour", as the first few seconds of the episode keep their faces hidden, as if their reveal never happened, only to show them afterwards.
      • It was also parodied in "Party Down", where she and Lynn Sr. wore lampshades to cover their faces.
  • Lori, Leni, Lana, Lola, and Lily seem to resemble Rita the most.
  • It is revealed in "A Novel Idea" that her first name is Rita and that she dreams of being a novelist.
  • Rita is the only member of the immediate Loud family whose first name is not alliterative.
  • Her name is a pun on the words "read aloud."
    • This is most likely because she wants to be a novelist, which involves reading (and writing).
  • Currently, it is shown that out of all of the kids, she is closest with Lincoln.
    • Out of all her daughters, she's the closest to Lori, Leni, and Lily.
  • It was revealed in "Cover Girls" that before Rita met her husband, she used to be a crossing guard.
  • Like Lori and Agnes Johnson, Rita wears blue eye shadow.
  • Rita's maiden name (her last name before she and Lynn Sr. got married) hasn't been revealed yet.
  • Rita made a voice speaking cameo on March 23, 2017, in the Saturday Morning Hang Zone with Lincoln Loud.
  • In "The Price of Admission", it is revealed that she is strong enough to carry Lynn Sr.
    • She also appears to be stronger than Lynn Sr. himself, as she was able to turn the wrench when taking out the tire from Vanzilla while he couldn't in Lana's Podcast from Listen Out Loud.
  • In "Spell It Out", it's revealed that she's part of a book club.
  • The colors and styles of clothing that the Loud and McBride parents wear correspond with each other. Rita and Howard both wear red button-up shirts, with collars, and rolled-up sleeves.
  • "Overnight Success", "Head Poet's Anxiety", and "Game Boys" are the only episodes where she appears without any dialogue.
  • Dub Facts:

  • It is revealed in "L is for Love", that she had freckles when she was younger.
  • It is revealed in "No Spoilers" that her favorite color is violet.
  • Rita is the third named character who had a birthday onscreen, the first character was Chandler, and the second was Maggie.
