'Momma's Boys': The best show that should never have been made

Did you lose it while watching the Momma’s Boys premiere last night?  You did?  Phew, thank God I wasn’t the only one. I happened to be watching NBC when it started, and I could NOT change the channel. This show is like the TV version of crack. Three pretty boys (yes, I said boys, they aren’t men) + 32 eligible bachelorettes + the boy’s moms = train wreck. 

A quick rundown of the highlights that had me throwing things at the TV:
All of these boys still live with their mothers, who do their laundry and in some cases still buy their underwear.

JoJo Bojanowski’s mom wants to let you ladies know that if you are Black, Jewish, Muslim, Asian, come from a divorced home, or anything other than white, you can be friends with him, but cannot, I repeat, CANNOT date him. Oh, you also must be petite and cook and clean.

Kudos to Donna Coffee who had the best line of the night: "Bitch, are you crazy?!"  Actually, Donna, Mrs. B just might be.

Cara Quici really loves her heels and will cry and pout like a three-year-old when they break

Vita Alexander will rip you a new one. (You best step off Momma Bojanowski — you’re lucky Vita didn’t  smack you in the face, because I think it was warranted.)

The one bright spot of the evening was Megan Albetus. Her meek librarian style made my heart melt.  Too bad the boys are much too shallow to notice and will opt for boobs over brains. 

Anyone else see the premiere?  Are you hooked on this mess of a show?  What should the house do to Mrs. B? Is it just me or did two of the moms act like they wanted to sleep with their sons?

    I almost never watch reality shows (especially dating shows), but this was trainwreck from which I just could NOT look away. Mrs. B is insaaaane, and the preview of her flipping out in the helicopter (because her son is kissing a black girl) has me hooked. Michael is clearly the real “catch” of the three boys, and his mom seemed the most fun (and was the one mom who didn’t look like she wanted to sleep with her son), although Robert and Esther seem very sweet (and Esther genuinely wants her son to meet somebody).

    See, now I’ve gotta go and download it off iTunes. And at NBC’s special “screw you” iTunes rate, no less. Damn.

    I normally would never watch such trash but I too could not look away… it was totally craptastic.

    As ususual they put dreck like this on television and cancel shows like Pushing Daisies. This has got to be a new low in reality tv.

    My husband and I watched the first few minutes, and turned it off before we got sucked in. The guy from NY isn’t that cute, but man, those moms are nutty. I have two little boys, and I love them to pieces, but I hope to heaven I am not making their beds, cooking, and doing laundry for them when they are in their mid twenties. And why is a 21 year old on the show? Is he really searching for ‘the one’ already? His mom is WAAAY over the top, and made me really uncomfortable.

    I felt so ashamed of myself for watching this crap. But now that I got that out of the way, it was terrifying and awesome. The funny thing about Mrs B is that she is not white herself – a little self hate there. The two mothers that seem like they want to sleep with their sons are like those female teachers that get caught with their teenage male students. weird and sorta criminal

    It was so hard to change the channel last night. What a trainwreck! Damn you Ryan Seacrest, damn you!

    I saw all I needed in the last five minutes. Springer is better.

    I was hooked from the previews as well, and just like most, was very annoyed at Mrs. B and her Howard Stern like comment in particular. I think all of the AFRICAN AMERICAN, ASIAN, JEWISH, MUSLIM, and anyone else in the house that doesn’t meet her criteria, should all go after her son for the purpose of getting under her skin! Her comments and reactions showed she is truly ignorant.

    One of the guys is a 21-year-old college hockey player. Yeah, I’m sure he is ready to settle down and get married.

    I was pissed off when I sat down to watch my usual “Law & Order: SVU” and I was HOOKED!!!!! I can’t wait for Monday. I hope the girls set fire to Mrs. B’s white hood and robe!

  • Chuck

    Someone might want to let Mrs. Bojanowski know.. “You aren’t white!”

  • cbjester
