She’s not your ordinary housewife
Three-course home-cooked meal, check.
House spotless, check.
Laundry done, ironed and folded, check.
The list goes on and on – the never-ending expectations that society has placed on the so-called perfect housewife. As if such a thing exists.
That’s the beauty of the comedy American Housewife, starring Katy Mixon as housewife and mother of three. Her nonchalant attitude mocks the general sentiment of her uptown community where all the moms are prim and proper, and their mansions are adorned by rows of loving family portraits. The uppity town of Westport is unashamedly the crème de la crème of suburbia, and the only reason the Otto family has moved here is for the benefit of their special-needs youngest daughter, Anna-Kat (Julia Butters).
