'I Love A Mama's Boy': Meet the four couples and the men's overbearing moms on TLC's relationship show
Who is more important to a guy? His mother or the woman of his dreams? Well, for a mama’s boy these two people are of equal importance. These men are apparently spoiled, coddled and spoon-fed by their overbearing mothers, who they are obsessed with and whom they consider to be the most perfect human beings. And when they fall in love with a woman, let's just say, a holy trinity is formed — the son, the woman and the mother. In this unbelievable new TLC series, the only thing standing between a couple’s true love is a very different kind of ‘other woman’, it’s the mother.
“At TLC, we are always spicing up our relationship series to surprise and delight our fans and I LOVE A MAMA’S BOY is no exception," said Howard Lee, President and General Manager of TLC. "From outrageous family dynamics and culture clashes to jaw-dropping mother-son rituals, we know viewers will go crazy for this fresh new love and relationship series.”
The show will follow the lives of four such trios and entertain with awkward moments ranging from cringe-worthy to catastrophic as these young women vie to become the leading lady in their man's life. Grab your popcorn and get ready.
Stephanie, Mike and Mom Liz
A couple of two 25-year-olds, Stephanie and Mike have been dating for a while and they decide to move in together to take their relationship to the next level. In comes Mom Liz. Mike is a full-on mama’s boy but Stephanie refuses to cater to his every need the same way his mom always has. She wants to get engaged to him but is well aware that getting his overprotective mother’s approval is the only way she will be able to have a future (and a ring) with the man she loves.
Emily, Shekeb and Mom Laila
Emily, 24, and Shekeb, 30, immediately connected when they met for the first time two years ago. On the other hand, Emily and Mom Laila are not fans of each other. There are vast religious and cultural differences between the two that Laila cannot seem to get over. Besides, Shekeb still lives with his parents and refuses to move out, fearing he might upset his mother. With Shekeb’s extreme devotion to his mom and Mom Laila’s cultural intolerance, there’s only so much a woman can take.
Justina, Jason and Mom Annette
Long overdue, wedding bells ring loud and clear for Justina and Jason and a little louder for Mom Annette. Overbearing mother Annette is determined to arrange the wedding of her dreams for her dear son and daughter-in-law. Jason, 28, is torn between his fiancé and his mommy and struggles to find a middle ground. Will the tension between Justina (26) and Mom Annette get diffused or will she be bulldozed into accepting her future mother-in-law's vision instead?
Kim, Matt and Mom Kelly
Kim, 25, and Matt, 28, live with Mom Kelly at her house, which has cost the couple’s sex life. This pair is ready for the next step and plan on building a home together, but the catch is the couple’s new home is right behind Matt’s parents’ home. Kim might have to share Matt with his mom until the end of time after all.
‘I Love A Mama's Boy', airs on October 25, Sunday, at 10/9 c only on TLC.
