- „I'm gonna try and be a better person. I'm not gonna give up”
- —Ade to Javier[src]
Adrianna Tate-Duncan is a former child star, actress, musician, and best friends with Annie, Silver, Navid, and Naomi. In pre-school, she made home movies with Navid, but as time passed, she became closer to Naomi and left Navid behind. With a father missing in the picture, her mother Constance needed to work hard enough to fulfill the void left behind by her father. Her mother eventually got her into an audition, one thing led to another, and Adrianna became famous at a young age.
In high-school, she and Naomi were able to get into a C&C club, standing for Cocaine and Champagne. Naomi had only tried it once, but Adrianna had become addicted to it. Adrianna is a theater student and Naomi Clark's best friend. She suffers from a serious drug addiction and is under a lot of strain from her mother. She is in a long term relationship with Navid, which causes tension with one of her best friends, Silver, when she begins to have feelings for Navid. They do however mend their friendship at the end of the season. In the series finale she ends up with Navid as they plan to spend the rest of their lives together.
Adrianna tells Ryan that she has been distracted because she has a major audition coming up. He asks what that will mean if she gets the part. She tells him that she'll be making lots of money. He makes fun of her for that, asking what she'll spend it on; shoes, clothes, or perhaps an expensive car she doesn't need. She then tells him that she'll pay the mortgage because her Mom can't. Adrianna goes to her major audition but when it comes time to actually do the audition, she bails. Adrianna arrives to snatch the purse. At Naomi´s party, Adrianna returned the purse, minus the cash. After the party, Adrianna uses the money she stole from Naomi to pay her dealer. Back at school, she tells everyone that she did the audition and she's in the top two for the part. "Keep your fingers crossed," she tells Mr. Matthews. Adrianna is with Naomi when she pulls up at her Naomi's dad's office and sees him kissing another woman. She's devastated and Adrianna tries to console her. Later, Adrianna goes to the Lucky Strike looking for Ethan and she tells him that Naomi is outside and she is freaking out and crying.
In "Wide Awake And Dreaming", Adrianna shows up for rehearsal, but as usual she's late and a bit strung out too. Brenda isn't impressed with her lead's attitude. Brenda tries to calm the girl, telling her that she cares about her and that she thinks she can be good. And when Adrianna gets onstage and starts to sing, it's clear how good she really is. Her voice is lovely, clear, and strong. At school, Adrianna is warming up with Brenda and her voice is superb. She's happy, excited and confident, until her mother shows up and tells her that she's arranged for several high profile agents and producers to be in the audience. All Adrianna has to do is perform well and things for their family will get better. As her mother piles on the pressure, Adrianna's confidence crumbles and Brenda looks both sad and worried for the girl. The night of the play, Stage Manager Silver is wigging out because she can't find Adrianna and curtain call is imminent. After a search it turns out Adrianna is there after all. But she's stoned out of her mind. Brenda tells her she can't go on-stage in her condition.
She then tells Annie to get into costume - she's going on in Adrianna's place and there's only fifteen minutes until curtain. Backstage, Kelly gets into an argument with Adrianna's mother who is furious that her daughter was pulled from the play. Kelly tries to make her see the condition her daughter is in but she refuses to see it – all she cares about is that Adrianna's opportunity to shine in front of some major Hollywood power players has been pulled out from under her. As the two storm out Kelly tells Adrianna to come to her office on Monday: she's not letting this go.
Later that night, the party at the Roosevelt is raging and Ty is on his balcony waiting for Annie. The knock at the door comes but its Adrianna not Annie who is standing on the doorstop. She forces her way inside and is clearly there to make the moves on Ty as a way to get back at Annie for stealing her spotlight. Ty doesn't look interested but Adrianna lies and tells him she saw Annie and Ethan in a hot lip-lock.Later upstairs, a nervous but excited Annie arrives at Ty's room. But it's not Ty that answers the door. It's Adrianna wearing only a towel. Adrianna invites her in and tells her what a great job she did in her part. Annie tries to explain but Adrianna waves off the apology. She tells Annie that Ty is in the shower "rinsing off" and offers to go get him. "I'll tell him his next appointment is here", she offers. Annie looks sickened and rushes from the room. After she leaves, Adrianna laughs, chugs her champagne and goes into the shower, which is empty.
Adrianna spends time with Annie when they both research Debbie's job for Mr. Matthews project which results in Annie landing her an audition which prompts Adrianna to tell her the truth about Ty. Naomi catches sight of Adrianna sitting on a ledge putting in some eye-drops, Naomi does some not-so-subtle digging, trying to find out if the rumors about Adrianna doing drugs are true. Adrianna complains that the only problem she has is Annie. The next day Naomi approaches Adrianna at her locker. Naomi calls her out on her B.S. but Adrianna isn't having any of it. She's totally stoked about landing the movie. Adrianna offers to give back Naomi's necklace and as she digs through her purse, Naomi catches sight of something. A lipstick. She looks way to upset about finding an innocuous lipstick, which is a case with a hiding place for drugs.
Just then the police burst through the school doors, dogs and all. It's a random locker search, Adrianna panics and worries that she's about to lose everything, As Annie watches, Naomi takes the lipstick from Adrianna's hands and heads toward the bathroom. Adrianna appears in Naomi's doorway, looking teary and apologetic. Naomi begs Adrianna to come clean, and her friend finally agrees. She just needs an hour to go home and explain things to her mom. Adrianna comes home to tell her mom the truth and instead, she finds a surprise party with just her mom. Her mother tells her how proud she is of her and how she couldn't tell her this before, but they were about to lose the house. Adrianna looks horrified. Adrianna fails to tell her the truth and instead she goes looking for drugs. Later, Adrianna is lying on the floor somewhere and medics are swarming around her still body. After she overdoses, she receives help for her drug addiction from her friend Navid, who pays for her to go to a renowned rehab center for the best treatment possible. Adrianna admits to owning the drugs, thus clearing Naomi's name. In a therapy session, Adrianna cries as she talks to her counselor. She tells her how badly she wants to see her friend Naomi. The therapist points out that it's good that Adrianna is claiming responsibility for her actions but Adrianna isn't impressed with herself. Adrianna also talks to Navid about her situation. At the homecoming Adrianna claims she's out on a night pass, but Naomi isn't fooled. Naomi tells her they can't be friends anymore because she can't deal with all the lying and the drama. Meanwhile, Adrianna is in the parking lot of the school, devastated after Naomi's rejection. Adrianna steps insde her dealers van, Navid appears and yanks her out. The dealer punches him and turns on Adrianna. The dealer leaves and Adrianna rushes to Navid's side and after finding him basically unhurt, asks him why he's doing this. It turns out that Navid has been in love with her since the second grade. As they talk, Naomi approaches. Adrianna throws herself into Naomi's arms, apologizing profusely through her tears.
Adrianna starts spending more time with Navid, At Silver´s slumber party,in a darkened room are Adrianna and Navid, who are watching something on television. Navid finally puts his arm around the girl. She happily snuggles in closer and then kisses his hand. She keeps looking at him like she expects him to make a move, and when he doesn't she gets a bit exasperated. Finally she takes the initiative and pulls him in for a kiss. Seconds later he's on top of her and they're making out like there's no tomorrow. Just as she's about to take off her clothes, Navid stops her, asking her why she seems like she's not into it. Adrianna tells him that she wasn't born yesterday. He paid for her rehab, he wants to sleep with her. Navid looks like he's been slapped and tells her that's not why he paid for it. He stands up and leaves. Adrianna sinks back against the couch, stunned that she was wrong and sorry to see him go. The next day, Adrianna finds Navid sitting alone at an outside table. She apologizes for misjudging him. He tells her that he paid for her rehab because he genuinely cares what happens to her. Adrianna tells him she wants to be with him and they start a relationship. Adrianna visits Navid's family, who invite for her dinner. She suspects Navid is hiding something and he confesses that he's a virgin and he didn't tell her because he thought she expected something different. Adrianna tells him that she's not expecting anything and that she doesn't care because she cares a lot about him. They kiss. Adrianna has a rehab group support circle meeting and asks Brenda Walsh to attend with her, since Brenda was the only one to stand up for her before -- not even her own mother did. During her little sharing time moment, Adrianna says she wakes up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and hating herself. Brenda and Kelly Taylor are there to support her as she learns a member of her rehab group, Hank, has learned he is HIV-positive and started using drugs again. She is reduced to tears since she slept with Hank several times while there, so she gets an HIV test,which comes back negative. While absorbing that relief, though, she is told she is pregnant, and she has no idea who the father would be, nor can she fathom telling Navid.
Adrianna tries to reach out to Naomi. Adrianna tells her she’s having problems and needs to talk to her in private. Naomi tells the senior Mean Girls she thinks Adrianna’s on drugs again. Adrianna passes out in science class. Naomi finds Adrianna, who is apparently okay, at a playground and accuses her of using. Adrianna reveals she’s not high, she’s pregnant. She has no clue what to do. If ever there was a case for abortion, a teenage addict who gets knocked up by another addict during rehab is it. Naomi is sympathetic. At the school beach party together, George mocks Adrianna's alleged drug use. Naomi tells the mean girls to quit talking trash about Adrianna. Navid punches George for talking smack about her. Adrianna breaks the news to him that pregnant. Navid admits that he isn’t sure he can handle dating a girl who is pregnant with someone else’s kid. Naomi admits to Adrianna that she’s the source of the rumors about her. Naomi promises Adrianna that she'll be there for her, actually mentioning abortion as an option.
In "By Accident", we find out that the baby's father is not Hank, but Ty, her co-star in the school play. She does not take the pregnancy well. Naomi says she thinks she should get an abortion while Kelly Taylor thinks she should raise it or give it up for adoption. She drives all night and ends up at a clinic, where they tell her she's too far along to get an abortion. Naomi supports her after Adrianna tells her. Naomi convinces her to tell Ty. Ty's parents will send her to a retreat in New Mexico, so that nobody finds out. She readily agrees. Later, Ty gives Adrianna a contract which states that Adrianna must keep the whole pregnancy a secret. Her mother has to sign the contract. Unfortunately, Adrianna doesn't want to tell her mother, as she thinks that she will be thrown out. Naomi convinces Adrianna to call Ty, as she thinks that the contract is unfair. Adrianna does, and Ty's mother comes over to Adrianna's house to discuss things with Adrianna's mother. Adrianna's mother, Ty's mother, and Adrianna sit down to talk and Adrianna tells her mother that she is pregnant. Ty's mother gets kicked out of the house because of her arrogance and Adrianna no longer gets her help. Her mother talks to Adrianna and sort of apologizes for her being a bad mother and Adrianna forgives her. Adrianna goes to school and decides to tell everyone her "secret". She gets help from Navid, to announce through the school's video system and tells the whole school that she is pregnant. Adrianna seemed set to have the worst Valentine's Day ever, when she got the pleasure of hearing Navid trash-talk her in the halls. Then she got a rose in class, only to find out it was from some of the faculty members that felt sorry for her. She decided to eat her feelings and ran into Navid while buying chocolate. Adrianna told him she was happy for him and Navid looked ready to dump his new girlfriend. Navid went to the dance, and Adrianna stayed home in bed. Navid showed up afterwards at Adrianna's house and called her a mess, right down to the chocolate smeared all over her face. He tells her that he doesn't care if she's a mess because she's all that he wants. He asks her to be his valentine, to which she accepts, and they kiss. They get back together. After Silver goes missing, Adrianna is unsure how to care for a child but when she and Navid offer to babysit for Kelly, the two prove to be better at the situation than they thought.
As Adrianna's due date approaches, she and Navid interview possible adoptive parents, but she is unsatisfied with all of her options. Navid and Adrianna talk about the adoptive parents. Adrianna overanalyzes them, then says she kept picturing the kid while they were talking. Navid suggests that they raise the baby together. Adrianna asks if they should get married and Navid says yes. The two then smile and declare that they are getting married. Navid and Adrianna fantasize about their future, but when they tell his parents about their decision to spend the rest of their lives together, they don't give consent. Navid and Adrianna finally come clean to their friends about their plans to raise the baby and get married. Their friends are less than thrilled, but Navid and Adrianna refuse to give up on their dream. Adrianna's baby shower turns into a disaster once she decides to end her sobriety by taking pills from the medicine cabinet. For prom, Adrianna and Navid saw Ty at prom with another girl, and the boys eventually got into a fight.
Unsurprisingly, Adrianna's water broke. Adrianna and Navid spend their prom night in the delivery room. She had to have an emergency c-section and refused to see the baby afterwards. Adrianna receives a visit from a dream version of Brenda that convinced her she needed to say goodbye to her daughter. Adrianna woke up and held her little girl for the first time with Navid by her side. Brenda showed up for real and told Adrianna how great adoption was and admitted she'd been in China adopting her own little girl. A teary Adrianna gave her little girl over to her adoptive parents and they named her Maisy. The end of the season shows Adrianna and Navid saying goodbye to Ade's daughter.
In season 2 it is revealed that Adrianna and Silver have grown closer during the summer through their mutual friendships with Naomi. Naomi and Silver have been in summer school due to Annie busting Naomi's post-Prom party. Navid and Adrianna's relationship has been progressing slowly, and while he is ready to take it to the next level and have sex, even going as far as to rent a cabana, she isn't, and still wants to wait. Meanwhile, Adrianna runs into her childhood boyfriend, Teddy, causing jealousy in Navid, due to their close relationship and Naomi, who has taken a liking to Teddy.

Adriana and Silver leaving head to the Blaze meeting. Navid asks the staff for a killer opening story. Gia suggests they interview Teddy – rising tennis star and son of an Oscar winning actor, except for the fact that he doesn't really give interviews. Adriana volunteers to talk to Teddy since the two have been such good friends. Navid seems reluctant but agrees. After the interview, Adriana gets mad at Navid for being harsh on Teddy, simply because they used to date. Navid points out that he's more upset because Adriana lost her virginity to Teddy. Teddy invites most of the gang on his father's yacht for a day cruise to get to know everyone better. Adrianna begins to show more appreciation to Teddy. Adrianna tells Navid about her agent and says she is going to skip for the audition. He tries to stop her, being that she said she was done with acting. Adrianna comes back and Navid is disappointed that she went but she says it was important to her. She gets a call and got the job.That night, Teddy finds Adrianna and she tells him about landing the part but Navid not approving. He acts sympathetic and kisses her, to which Adrianna is shocked.

Adrianna tells him that her mom is working late and that she thinks it's 'time'. Navid and Adrianna have sex. Teddy suggests a double date and Navid accepts before asking Adrianna. Later that day, Navid and Adrianna make love and Navid tells her that Teddy invited them on a double date. Adrianna says no but Navid tells her he already accepted.
Adrianna thinks that she has feelings for Teddy, so she breaks up with Navid. Teddy tells Navid about kissing Adrianna. After realising that Teddy doesn't actually want anything serious, Adrianna tells Navid that she made a mistake and she wants him back. He rejects her. Later in "Unmasked" she begins to avoid Teddy because of what he did to her. In "Women's Intuition" Adrianna fails at winning Navid back, and thus, begins another downward spiral when she witnesses Navid flirting with other girls, and Teddy flirting with Silver. She purchases drugs from Jasper, the boyfriend of her old friend Annie. Navid later sees Adrianna buying drugs from Jasper at school. He confronts her about it but she angrily denies it. Naomi later finds her drugs at her house and leaves angry at her for lying. When Adrianna finds out about the death of Silver's mother and Navid's injury, she decides to make a change for the better. She gets rid of all her drugs and tells Navid that she plans on working on herself, because she realized that even though during the previous year when she was off drugs she had been acting like an addict, as in, extremely dependent on him.
Then, at the Winter Wonderland dance, Adrianna tried to get her friends back. She saw that Annie was dating her former drug dealer, Jasper. She decides to turn Jasper in to protect Annie. During an intervention for Annie, Adrianna comes clean and tells her that she purchased the drugs from him and that she's willing to come forward if she has to. Navid tells her that she shouldn't because she'll get expelled. Adrianna's strength and selflessness helps her begin to mend friendships with Silver and Naomi. The three also befriend Annie once they learn the truth about Jen. Adrianna also finds companionship in Gia, fellow West Bev Blazer and former addict. They become close, helping each other out during troubled times. Adrianna helps Gia move on from her ex. Gia convinces Ade to audition to be in an all-girl band called the Glorious Steinems. Gia later confesses to Adrianna that she has feelings for her, Adrianna herself begins to question if their friendship could turn into something more.
After a heart-to-heart with Gia, Adrianna comes to the realization that she reciprocates Gia's feelings and the two then embark on a relationship. During the early stages of the relationship, Adrianna is reluctant to be public with their relationship much to Gia's dismay but after Adrianna performs live with 'The Glorious Steinems' she walks up to Gia to kiss her in front of the audience, after realizing that it shouldn't matter what others think. Adrianna is then approached by Ivy's mother, Laurel Cooper, who hopes to sign her as a solo singer. Put in the awkward situation of having to choose between staying in the band or going solo she talks to Navid and comes to the conclusion that she should go with the latter. Adrianna then has a heated argument with Gia due to the fact that Adrianna chose to speak with Navid about her doubts rather than Gia and causes Gia to walk out.
While at a party, Adrianna and Laurel have a talk and Laurel tells Adrianna to follow her heart and leave the party to find Gia. Adrianna takes this advice and arrives at Gia's place only to walk in on Gia with her ex, causing Adrianna to leave her. As Adrianna's music career begins to take off, Laurel has her write a song which turns into a duet between her and famous singer Javier . The two feel an instant connection and things heat up fast while Navid realizes that he still has feelings for her. Adrianna and Navid get back together after Navid confesses his love for her. She tells him that nobody can compete with him. Javier offers Adrianna a chance open for Javier's tour, which is all year long.

She sings one of his stolen songs at his memorial, a video of which is posted on YouTube. She is later confronted by Javier's uncle and manager, Victor. He then blackmails Adrianna into accepting him as her new manager or he will expose her. Initially Victor is quite controlling with Adrianna critiquing and bullying her and taking her image in a more sexual direction. In one case opting her to wear a revealing dress at a birthday party gig he set up for her and later suggesting she go topless for a magazine photo-shoot, to which Adrianna reluctantly agrees, alarming her friends and boyfriend, Navid. It pays off however and Adrianna begins to get media attention and is featured as the cover of the magazine she posed topless for. Over the course of the next few episodes we see that Adrianna has been drawn in by the Hollywood lifestyle, losing touch with her friends and Navid causing him to lose interest in her. The two fight in which he labels her as "self-centered". Adrianna realizes that she holds the power in her the
business relationship with Victor, and that wouldn't expose her because she is a viable source for money for him. She asserts herself and begins to treat Victor horribly in retaliation for the way he treated her. In Holiday Madness Adrianna, now a rising star in the music industry, moves into a an expensive lavish mansion. She does so even at the discretion of Victor who advises her that it's a big and expensive commitment and that in 6 months things could be different, this causes Adrianna now so self-centered and self-assured that she cuts his salary in half. Victor later attempts to apologize and gives her a cashmere blanket as a sorry gift. Adrianna tells him bluntly that she hates it and he should just return it, sneering to his face. Navid and Silver are the only two friends that show up to her housewarming and Navid at this point has drifted away from her and developed feelings for Silver, to which Adrianna is oblivious. The next day at a Christmas party she is hosting in her new home, she opens gifts and openly regards most of them as hideous and mocks that they belong in the "the return pile", she opens a gift from Victor, a picture of him holding Javier's songbook. Alarmed she storms out of her own party and and looks for it. Her search comes up empty and panicked she phones Victor, who is seen with what appears to be a replacement for Adrianna.

In Liars, Adrianna’s world continues to crumble when she appears on a talk show to tell her side of the story, and she is blindsided by a surprise guest, Victor. She pretends she suffers from PTSD in order to cover-up what really happened, but she gets found out.
