'I Love A Mama's Boy': Matt rolls on the couch with his mom Kelly, viewers say 'just come out the closet'
Kim was upset about Matt not being able to face his mom at times of adversity and his tendency to go with whatever she says
Ever since their apartment caught fire, Matt and Kim have been staying with Kelly, Matt’s mother, and it has been a struggle for Kim while the mother-son duo seemed to be very comfortable. With Kim’s birthday coming up, the mother-son duo plan a trip to New York for the couple and well, birthday girl Kim.
Thinking it was a brilliant idea Matt went to talk to Kim to break the news. Kim was upset about Matt not being able to face his mom at times of adversity and his tendency to go with whatever she says. She told him that the ideas that they both talked about regarding their home were completely dismissed by Kelly and she imposed her own ideas and Matt didn't say anything.
Matt said if he had hurt Kim’s feeling he was sorry but he was never going to ask his mom to “butt out.” Matt’s words gave Kim no hope of their situation changing anytime soon when he went on to tell her that he and his mom had planned a New York trip for her birthday. Before Kim could get over the fact that his mother would also grace them with her presence on her birthday, Kelly steps out in a Statue of Liberty costume and swirls around in front of them.
Viewers quickly took to social media to comment about how they feel, “she's far too good looking to put up with the #iloveamamasboy level of weirdness,” wrote a fan about Kim. “LOL if I were Kim, I would tell Matt to take his mom to New York for my birthday and leave me by myself in peace #iloveamamasboy,” wrote another.
Insinuating that Matt might be gay, another viewer of the show wrote, “A birthday trip with your bf and his mom at this point Matt is doing any and everything to not be alone with Kim! Just come out the closet #iloveamamasboy”

In the second half of the show, pandemic strikes and everyone was under Covid -19 lockdown. For Matt and Kelly it was like a dream come true as they were staying together and working from home but Kim soon started to get cabin fever to the point where she didn’t want to be at home any longer.
Matt and Kelly’s rolling on the couch in a playful manner and Matt rubbing her feet made viewers cringe as they wrote, “Why was she rolling around with her son like that #iloveamamasboy,” with a “That’s disgusting gif.” “Why was Kelly on top of her son.. #iloveamamasboy,” wrote another. “Doesn't Kelly have a Husband to rub her feet? #iloveamamasboy,” said another comment.
Later the couple had a discussion about their relationship and Kim told Matt that she feels he was always prioritising his mom over her and if it was going to be like that forever then it wouldn’t be a very healthy marriage to step into. Matt on the confession round to the camera said he felt everything was completely fine and that he had no idea that Kim was upset.
