Moms come in all shapes and sizes and no matter what their profession or how they gave birth if they take care of a child that they call their own they are a mom. We often forget that actors and actresses are just down to earth people that love their job. Their life looks extremely glamorous but once they get home from work it’s the same as us. They get home run upstairs change clothes into comfy yoga pants and are ready to tackle the day a home. At least that’s how Ming-Na Wen describes her home. Her husband says he would prefer a few minutes with the fake Ming-Na, but he’s still quite happy to have her home for the day.
Ming-Na wasn’t the only ABC TV mom that we met. I also met, Wendi McLendon-Covey of THE GOLDBERGS (@wendimcclendonco), Amanda Fuller of LAST MAN STANDING (@amandafuller27), Patricia Heaton of THE MIDDLE (@PatriciaHeaton), Frankie Shaw of MIXOLOGY (@frankishawisag), Alexis Carra of MIXOLOGY (@alexiscarra),Toks Olagundoye of THE NEIGHBORS (@ToksOlagundoye), Jami Gertz of THE NEIGHBORS, Malin Akerman of TROPHY WIFE (@MalinAkerman). Moms that love to talk about their children just as much as we do!
I felt so blessed for the experience and I’m kicking myself because I left all my photos on my old phone. I have a picture with Patricia Heaton and Jami Gertz. Both of whom I was able to talk to for quite a while eating appetizers and drinking cocktails together. Patricia spoke a lot about her son and Jami had lots of parenting advice while also saying as a parent you just do the best you can.
But at least I found this photo of me and Tara with the Mixology girls.
The Moms of ABC are at all different stages of motherhood. They all play mother’s on TV but not all can pull from that experience some of the moms had to spend the day with a niece or nephew to get a real parenting experience. What I loved most was hearing Ming-Na tell me that she, like me wouldn’t be able to home school her children without someone in the house getting hurt. And when she has to deal with behavior sometimes the best thing to say is “Don’t make me go Agent May on you!”
Which reminds me, Agents of Shield is really good right now cleaning up the aftermath of what happened in Captain America The Winter Soldier (Now in theaters).
