Not only is her character in ABC’s new comedy trying to keep her family afloat in a wealthy new town, but she also must dodge the half-hearted smiles and insults-disguised-as-compliments that other Westport, Connecticut moms throw her way. Luckily for us viewers at home, this unapologetic TV parent has one tough backbone underneath her pizza-stained sweater.
We’ve seen many tough television comedy moms over the years, but rarely do we meet a matriarch who can take tough insults and dish them out with no leftover laughs. Watch the video above to get a glimpse of some of the funny comments and remarks Katie’s character will be serving up on American Housewife.
Watch the series premiere of American Housewife on Tuesday, 8:30 p.m. ET | 7:30 p.m. CT on ABC.
