This show is to be exciting and fun as it brings all your favorite 90’s actresses back. I loved Full House, Step By Step and 7th Heaven growing up.
On a recent conference call with the actresses they answered some questions for us about the show.
The show is based on your life now, but do you bring anything different to make the show more entertaining.
Jody: Im definitely more dark and cynical in the show then real life
Christine:Im a Hippie Dippy in real life, a free spirit and we exaggerate that on the show a little.
Beverly: I am the Type A ever organized person on the show and I would like to think i am not like that in real life.
I heard this show is unscripted: Not a reality show is this true?
Christine: Yeah, this is what we call an improvised comedy and you know, it’s a little tough to explain because there haven’t been many of them done. Um, you know, this show came about when Jodie, myself and Beverly were all approached by our executive producer Jimmy Foxx uh, who wanted to put together sort of like, a 90’s dream-team of women he grew up with on TV who you know, felt like he maybe had a crush on.
Will you be sharing your children on this show at all?
Beverly: The show is centered around us and we are mothers but no our children do not appear in the show.
Jodie:The content of the show is humorous, inappropriate jokes, cursing and we are mothers but wanted to separate our children from that.
This show is bound to be a show all moms can relate to and hilarious at that. Be sure to tune in tomorrow April 12, 8pm/7C to catch it, and every wednesday for the series on Pop TV.
