I recently discovered a new TV show. Party Mamas. I think it’s a great show on the Canadian Slice channel, which goes by the tag line: Slice is my Vice.
So, Party Mamas. I couldn’t do a better job with wrapping the show’s concept into one sentence:
“Party Mamas, follows out-of-control mothers as they plan over-the-top extravaganza parties for their children.”
Here are a just couple out of a myriad reasons why Party Mamas is so good:
- Everyone just likes to say Party Mama
- By saying Party Mama everybody envisions how he or she would be an out-of-control Party Mama
- The Party Mamas run into a fit with just simple things going wrong, for instance, the request for reserving a table at a restaurant was not met and all the tables are occupied by Fatso Mamas. Party Mama turns red and screams at the waiters without hesitation.
- The show is so scripted, you forget it’s a reality show
- At the end, the spoiled brats say something like “That was the best party I ever had. It was amazing”
I especially adore episode 7 where Party Mama Dena throws a Circus themed Bat Mitzvah party for her daughter Natalie.
Party Mama: I love to go to the spa, it’s important. I love to do my yoga in the morning. I am always late. I didn’t get the being-on-time gene.
Child: I decided that it was my life, my party, my Bat Mitzvah, and I wanted to buy the dress – so I bought the dress.
At the food tasting.
Child: This is disgusting.
Dad: This is the greatest beef in the world
Child: I thought that they should let me have what I wanted. I am a vegetarian and all my friends are. I want broccoli, asparagus, carrots
Party Mama: You can’t just have vegetables. Natalie is not in charge of what is served at the Bat Mitzvah, I am in charge.
Mir wern kei Schlangefrau uff de Party ham.
Party Mama: We are not having a contortionist at this Bat Mitzvah party. It will not happen. They wear skimpy clothing and I was worrying certain parts could be exposed. I’m at my breaking point. I have to call my therapist now.
Watch episode 7 for the full Party Mama drama.
