The 2nd Fattest Housewife In Westport

Yesterday, I got my knuckles rapped for making a fat joke about Chris Christie.

So I offer this story from Deadline Hollywood straight up, without any snark. Here’s the skinny:

ABC wrapped a flurry of pilot orders today with a pickup of  “The Second Fattest Housewife In Westport,” a single-camera family comedy from novelist/TV writer Sarah Dunn, producer Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios.

“The Second Fattest Housewife In Westport” is narrated by Katie, a (slightly) larger, strong-willed mother raising her flawed family of three in a wealthy town filled with “perfect” wives and their “perfect” offspring. Dunn and Kaplan executive produce.

It’s unclear who the First Fattest Housewife in Westport is. Or if either of them know Bobby “Axe” Axelrod, hedge fund billionaire on the other TV show now highlighting Westport, Showtime’s “Billions.”

    What is wrong with snark – you say it as if it’s a bad thing!


  2. After all the nasty stuff the big guy spewed last night I’m reminded of what was said about Christie and Bridgegate: It was reported that Christie blocked all traffic on the GW bridge just by standing there.

  3. I can’t wait to check out the show!!!

    So I guess you are not voting for a Fat person? What do you think about pant suits? Ha

  5. I’m wondering if we might move on from all of this nonsense.

    Now Dan, don’t get your tuuchus all in a twist: There are at least 22 Westports in the United States. How can we be sure it was our Westport?

    I would prefer something more realistic, such as “The Femmes Fatales of Westport”.

      I must retract my snarky comment above. No excuse for being short-tempered. Sorry.
