Westport “Housewife” TV Show Debuts Tuesday

She’s not a “disgusting, piggy” former Miss Universe.

She’s not a 400-pound computer hacker.

She’s not even the “Second Fattest Housewife in Westport” anymore.

But she still lives here.

ABC-TV’s new show — with the new name “American Housewife” — premieres Tuesday (October 11, 8:30 p.m.).

Here’s the promotional blurb:

Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of 3, raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring.

Katie’s perfectly imperfect world is upended when her neighbor’s decision to move notches her up from her ideal social standing and sets her on a path to ensure that doesn’t happen, regardless of the consequences.

“Game of Thrones” it ain’t.

But feel free to curl up in front of your TV on Tuesday, to see how the rest of America sees Westport.

And don’t forget that gallon of ice cream!

  1. On Tuesday evening, October 11, many Westport families will be in Synagogue beginning our fast during the “Kol Nidre” Yom Kippur services. No ice cream for us! (nor ice cream cake for me as it’s my birthday)

  2. I wonder if she will be invited to the same country club as the wives of Billions?

  3. Wonder how many red-painted curbs, sidewalks in front of homes, yellow/brown hills and other bits of the LA suburban landscape that don’t exist in the real Westport?

    This show won’t make it past it’s 6th episode. Why ? It’s a-geud.
