On National Doughnut Day, it seems only fitting to be introducing a new, unconventional mom who will be gracing TV screens across the country come Monday night. It's perfect because she's a doughnut-loving lady as well.
Meet Jill Weber (played by author Jill Kargman, who also happens to be Drew Barrymore's sister-in-law). She's the carb-loving lead character in Bravo's first scripted comedy series "Odd Mom Out," premiering June 8 at 10 p.m. ET.
Jill's a married mom of three who lives on New York's elite Upper East Side and is navigating the tricky terrain of blue-blooded mommy cliques. Her husband Andy's family is one of those decadent bunches, and Jill tries to resist the temptations that come with being, well, wealthy.
Resisting carbs, however? Not gonna happen. At least not for Jill. (In the not-safe-for-kids trailer, the other moms hilariously shun the restaurant bread basket).
"Jill's frenemies and in-laws only fuel the pressure for her to conform, including the status-obsessed family matriarch, Candace (Joanna Cassidy, "Six Feet Under"), brother-in-law Lex (Sean Kleier, "Madam Secretary") and his wife, Brooke (Abby Elliott, "Saturday Night Live"), who reigns over a group of quintessential Upper East Side mombots with an iron credit card," Bravo's press notes say of the new series.
You might know Kargman from her best-selling books, especially "Momzillas," on which the series is based. In that novel, she explores the world of "competitive, high-stakes mothering," where getting into the top pre-pre-preschool is an absolute must.
The real-life mom of three is also making her TV debut at 40, and we say good for her!
