Mother and Father
Len and Nadia Rivera
Alicia is the daughter of Len Rivera and Nadia Rivera. She is known as an exotic beauty, because of her dark hair, tan skin and big boobs. In early books (Revenge of the Wannabes) she tries to make a clique like Massie's, but ends up almost losing her true friends. Almost every Briarwood boy wants to date Alicia and her tag-along friend Olivia Ryan.
Alicia befriends Olivia Ryan (who is not a member of the Pretty Committee) at Massie & Claire's boy-girl Halloween party.
Massie and Claire make a bet that Massie can't shop for a month and Claire can't re-wear any of her clothes (including her Keds). Because Massie is unable to shop, she was at a loss at what to wear, so she and the rest of the Pretty Committee wear revealing Halloween costumes to school.
After this, Principal Burns informs the students that they will be wearing uniforms to school from now on and any group of girls can design them. Alicia and Olivia team up for the OCD "Fashion Week Uniform Contest" and propose that the students wear Ralph Lauren blazers, jeans and strappy sandals.
Massie, Dylan, Kristen and Claire team up together and go against Alicia & Olivia where they get more hits. In a desperate attempt, Alicia cheats by switching the P.C.'s ballots to her. Massie discovers what Alicia has done, but doesn't say anything to her and chooses to lay low & strike later.
In the end, the Pretty Committee (which now features Claire replacing Alicia) confronts the principal about what Alicia did and convinces her not to switch to uniforms so they don't have to wear Alicia's outfits.
She also manages to get a modeling contract with "Teen People" for their holiday edition, but everything flops when Massie crashes Alicia's modeling party. Alicia ends up making amends with Massie and rejoins the Pretty Committee. She ultimately abandons Strawberry and Kori, but still remains friends with Olivia.
Alicia attempts to set up Claire and Cam, who like each other, but Massie (who has a crush on Cam) gets in the way. She falls for Cam's older brother, Harris (who is four years older than her) and tries to make him like her by getting him free tickets to the Strokes concert, but Harris ends up taking another girl to the concert and Alicia realizes that she'll never have a shot with him.
After a long vacation in Spain, Alicia returns home with her cousin, Nina, who begins attending OCD with her, but she's later revealed to be a thief as she not only steals items from most of the girls at OCD, she steals the Pretty Committee's crushes as well.
In a subplot, Alicia ends up doing something about her crush, a new student named Josh Hotz and in the end, she humiliates Nina, sending her back to Spain.
Claire ends up kissing Josh by accident, but Alicia is unaware of this and still likes Josh.
The Pretty Committee heads off on a camping trip with the boys from Briarwood. When Alicia discovers that Claire kissed Josh, she gives Claire a taste of her own medicine by not giving Claire's "Change of Plans" note to Cam and tries to kiss him.
Alicia, Massie and Claire head to Hollywood with the hopes of winning a role in the movie "Dial L for Loser."
When Claire starts getting attention, Alicia and Massie become amateur reporters on behalf of "The Daily Grind" and plan to expose her. She and Massie lie and trash Claire's bathroom with items such as tampons & athlete's foot cream, and also claim that Claire has body & beauty issues.
After that, Alicia and Massie invited to the house of Claire's co-star and end up on the cover of "US Weekly," but then they discover that the photographer was just getting embarrassing photos of them (such as Alicia with a booger in her nose and Massie picking a wedgie).
Later, the girls make up in the hotel room as they bond over the free clothes that were given to Claire. When they come home, there are cutouts of Alicia & Massie made by the girls of OCD.
When the girls return from Hollywood, Claire becomes an idol to the girls of OCD because of her new movie which upsets Massie, so she kicks Claire out of the Pretty Committee.
Massie and the rest of the P.C. have to find a key to obtain the most glamorous clubhouse, but unlike any other year, the 8th grade alpha Skye Hamilton decides to change things and make it the competition into a race by giving this message to more than one committee.
Alicia tries to help Massie get the key by getting a list of boys that Skye has kissed, but when Claire finds it underneath Chris's bed, Massie lets Claire back into the Pretty Committee, but Layne has to join their sleepover.
At first, the girls don't understand what's so good about the room, but then they discover the television that shows the boys from their ESP class & they even ditch class to escape the room.
At first, Alicia is bothered by Josh's freakishly clean room, but she starts developing a relationship with him after discovering that his sister was the one who did all of the cleaning.
At the end of the book, Alicia is the only person with a legitimate date to Skye's party.
Alicia goes to Spain on summer vacation expecting to hang out with Nina's older twin sisters, but they ditch her and become GR girls.
She accidentally runs into a statue that is treasured by Spain and finds herself having to pay off the bill by working with Alicia.
Alicia also deals with an annoying boy who keeps wanting to talk to her. In the end, she becomes friends with Nina and discovers who the annoying guy was & they fall in love with each other.
When Alicia sees Josh, she's reluctant to hang out with him because she swore off boys in the 8th grade, but is unable to resist the temptation and begins secretly seeing him.
When Massie discovers that Alicia is dating Josh, she kicks Alicia out of the Pretty Committee, but she ends up re-joining them by the end of the book.
Alicia is thrilled about this, but not for long. She tries to give Massie ideas for cheer routines, but Massie refuses to listen to her, so she forms her own cheerleading squad called the Heart Nets.
Near the end of the book, Massie finds out about the Heart Nets and kicks Alicia out of the Socc-Hers & the Pretty Committee. Alicia tries to explain that she's only trying to be the alpha in dance, but Massie doesn't listen and leaves.
Tired of Massie's controlling ways, Alicia quits the Pretty Committee.
In the beginning of the book, Principal Burns announces that the Briarwood School has reopened which leaves Alicia's cheerleading squad, the Heart-Nets with no purpose, so she decides to form a boy-girl clique called The Soul M8s which includes herself, Dylan, Kristen, Claire, Derrick Harrington (Dylan's new crush\boyfriend), Cam, Josh and Dempsey.
Even though Massie's new clique, MAC is beating Alicia's clique, she plans group activities which end up failing. Alicia plans a dinner party for the Soul-M8s which also fails when they leave for Massie's charity.
In the end, the Pretty Committee reforms in Bark Jacobs (the store that belongs to the mother of Massie's new crush, Landon Crane).
When Alicia realizes that she doesn't like Josh because they were the same clothing size, she upgrades to a 9th grader.
Alicia is not allowed to shop between Thanksgiving and Christmas if she wants to go to the Spanish Rivera. She also never leaves Massie's side.
Alicia gets her fortune told by Hermia (the woman who predicted that the Pretty Committee would come together in the first place) and finds out that she will be the alpha of the Pretty Committee which scares her.
In the end, Massie moves to England and Alicia becomes the new alpha of the Pretty Committee.
Alicia is both pretty and mean, just like Massie. She loves to gossip, and is usually leading in gossip points. Adults love her "sweet" personality, and she's a flirt around boys. It is shown that Alicia wants to be a reporter when she grows up, though she is pretty enough for modeling. Alicia also knows a lot about law because her father is a famous and wealthy lawyer. She's also sneaky and "Alicias" her way into things. Her dream is to win Massie's throne one day and rule the Pretty Committee, although this changes after she discovers that being alpha is hard in Boys R Us. One of Alicia's hobbies is to dance at Body Alive Dance Studio Squad (also known as B.A.D.S.S.)
Alicia Rivera's family is the wealthiest of the whole Pretty Committee and has the largest house. She is Spanish and Caucasian. Her dad, Len Rivera is a lawyer and her mom is former Spanish model Nadia Rivera. Her maternal cousins live in Spain and consist of Nina, Celia & Isobel.
Massie has been known to make fun of Alicia and call her "Fannish", or fake Spanish (although that doesn't make sense because Alicia is still half Spanish) because of Len changing his last name "Rivers" to "Rivera" so that Nadia's parents would bless their marriage.

Alicia is stunningly beautiful. Alicia is describled as having perfect tan skin. Her beautiful eyes are dark brown and super sexy. Alicia always wears Ralph Lauren and is skinny. Her long hair is usually wavy or straight and is said at first to be "dark and glossy". In many of the first books, Alicia has been described as having black hair, but in My Little Phony, her hair is described as brown. Also in the film, Alicia is portrayed as a brunette. She also has C-cup boobs, which she is self-conscious about (though girls wish for them and guys like them). Harris Fisher, Claire's crush's older brother in the third book, was staring at her huge boobs, directly at them. She doesn't want her boobs, and once offered her friend Olivia them. Almost everyone she meets ends up staring at them, and when she feels self-conscious, she often crosses her arms.
