American Housewife is a Little Shop of Horrors, Kids Are Alright gets drafted
February 5th, 2019 under ABC, Katy Mixon. [ Comments: none ]

American Housewife moves to its new night and time tonight at 8p on ABC, and it is an episode to sing about. It is not the only one because the sitcom is getting two more musical episodes this season. On March 19th, Taylor’s (Meg Donnelly) wants to audtion for American Idol, but her parents, Katie (Katy Mixon) and Greg (Diedrich Bader), do not want her to do it. How will they convince her not to fly out to LA. Then on May 21st, Katie decides to leave the family to fend for themselves. The season finale will feature four original songs written by Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman and Glenn Slater (Tangled, Galavant) as well as choreography from Ashley Wallen (La La Land, The Greatest Showman).

Those episodes are still a ways away, let’s talk about tonight. Katie likes to do things her way, and Greg likes to do taxes his way. When she goes to a tax guy to do their taxes, Greg seeks revenge on his wife. If you are new to the show, that is going to be a huge mistake for him. How will she prove to him how big of a mistake he made? Pray for Greg is all I will say.

Here is where the musical part comes in to play tonight. Taylor gets the lead in Little Shop of Horrors tonight and Pierce (Milo Manheim) is the Seymour to her Audrey. He has been doing everything he can to get her to be his including rigging how she got the lead. When her ex-boyfriend Trip (Peyton Meyer) tries to warn her what he has done, she doesn’t believe him. Will he be able to get through to her before it is too late?

I am happy that ABC has enough faith in American Housewife to have it lead off a night. It is a sweet show that more people should be watching. Therefore, watch it.

Then at 8:30p, The Kids Are Alright tackles something many parents went through from 1969-1972. They would tune into to see if their son was going to be drafted to go to Vietnam via the lottery.

The Clearys’ oldest son, Lawrence (Sam Straley) dropped out of the seminary and that means his deferment no longer works. He gets a letter telling him that he has been drafted and must report in two weeks. Just as he tells his family the news, Eddie’s (Caleb Foote) birthday comes up in the lottery. That means when he turns 18 in a few months, he will have to enlist.

Their parents act differently to the news. Their dad (Michael Cudlitz) is a WWII vet and he is proud his sons will be going to war and make them men. While their mom (Mary McCormack) will do everything in her power to make sure they never leave for Vietnam. Lawrence is ready to go to Canada to avoid going. However, Eddie wants to make his dad proud by serving.

Will they be going to Vietnam or will they get out of the draft? This is an emotional episode that should make every man born after 1972 be grateful, they never had to worry about being drafted. It is also important to watch before you tune into the State of the Union (don’t watch). It reminds us how far our government will go so boys in power can use people as their own personal GI Joes. This is a reminder that we should never get back to a point where people are forced to fight a war they don’t want to fight. Something two of our Presidents should know all too well because they did all they could to not go to Vietnam. They were sucessful, but many were not.


Katy Mixon had baby #2, 3 days before baby #1 turned 1!
May 26th, 2018 under Katy Mixon. [ Comments: none ]

On May 19, 2017, Katy Mixon and her fiance’ Breaux Greer welcomed their first child together, a boy named Kingston Saint. Then on May 16, 2018, 362 days later, they welcomed their second child together, a girl named Elektra Saint. According to People, she came into the world weighing 8 lbs., 12 oz. and measured 22 inches long.

Here is a little fun fact, Mixon has been pregnant the whole time (minus the pilot) she has filmed her sitcom American Housewife. In fact, Elektra was born the same day as the show’s second season finale. I would not be surprised if she found herself with child again in a few months. I mean would it be a season of the ABC program without her being with child? So they better get working on it as soon as it physically possible.

BTW I so love the name Elektra. She is bound to be cool because how can you not be with a name like that?


American Housewife’s Katy Mixon is pregnant again!
November 29th, 2017 under American Housewife, Katy Mixon. [ Comments: none ]

On May 19th, Katy Mixon welcomed her son, Kingston, and now 4 days after his first birthday she is welcoming her second child with fiance’ Breaux Greer. She told Access Hollywood Live, that this time around she is having a girl and that she is a surprise that she was not expecting. For all those people who say you cannot get pregnant while you are breastfeeding, they lied. She said, it was when her milk dried up that she found out she was having baby #2.

Luckily, she is on a show, where her EP told her it is OK to get pregnant if she wants to because her character is not supposed to be stick thin on the sitcom. Granted the EP told her that for the first season, but it works for the second one too. Right?

When it comes to if her pregnancy will be written into American Housewife, she said as of now she does not know. Ali Wong, who plays one of her best friends on the show, is also pregnant in real life and her pregnancy was written into the show that airs Wednesdays at 9:30p on ABC. Which makes you wonder if there is something in the water there. Even though both of them got pregnant on hiatus.


BTWF roles: Katy Mixon in Zombie Prom
November 15th, 2017 under American Housewife, Before They Were Famous, Katy Mixon. [ Comments: none ]

Before Katy Mixon was far from being the perfect American Housewife, she was the perfect student in Zombie Prom. She looks the same now as she did when she was 24 in that highlarious 2006 short!


Katy Mixon is happy no matter what size she is!
November 14th, 2017 under ABC, American Housewife, Katy Mixon, Steve Harvey. [ Comments: none ]

When Katy Mixon was on Mike & Molly, she was skinny. Then when she was cast in American Housewife, she put on a few pounds. Even more as the season went on because she was pregnant with her first child. While most Hollywood moms cannot wait to take the weight off, she is not one them.

In fact, she tells Steve Harvey on his show today,”I am a very firm believer that it is only you in this World and therefore that is powerful. And my weight does not define me. It is not my self worth.” Then she added, “I am a very big fan of you gotta march to the beat of your own drum. Not look to the left or the right and hold your head high to walk through the fire. And realize you are not going to get it perfect every time. That is where I live. That is what I believe.”

I believe whether she is a size 2 or a size 14, she is absolutely gorgeous inside and out! And funny as all hell! If you have never seen her shows, then you really need to check her out in American Housewife every Wednesday at 9:30p on ABC.
