Comedian Roseanne Barr has been lined up for a new series on bad moms. The New York Post reports that Barr will host Investigation Discovery's “Momsters: When Moms Go Bad."
“The show spotlights stories of mothers who will do anything in order for their children to succeed — from the soccer mom who stalks, threatens and attacks her son’s coach to the theater mom who takes auditions into her own hands,” the piece reports.
Tabloid stories such as the “Texas Cheerleader” mom, who tried to hire a hitman to kill the mother of a cheerleading rival of her daughter’s, will be retold, with Barr providing commentary. The show is expected to debut later this year.
“I like to correct people when I don’t think they’re doing good mother things in public,” Barr told the newspaper. She said she had admonished a woman this week for allowing her child to be outside in bare feet in 40-degree weather. “It’s weird what people do and how everyone ignores it. So this [show] is like, let’s not ignore this for a while.”
