Sunday Seven – Episode 259

The woman who played one of television’s most-loved moms died on Saturday. Barbara Billingsley, known to generations as June Cleaver from Leave It to Beaver, passed away at her Santa Monica home at age 94.

June was the “ideal mother,” Billingsley said in an interview. But there have been plenty of other TV moms who fell far short of the mark June Cleaver set. That’s the topic of this week’s edition of the Sunday Seven.

  • This one was hilarious!
    Thank you
    My recent post Sunday 7 – You’re not mah MAMA!

  • 1. Roseanne Barr. I don't think I need to go into specifics.
    2. The mom from Home Improvement. Too prissy, although provided a nice balance considering the rest of the lot…
    3. Raymond's mother from Everybody Loves Raymond. Too nosy, loud, and neurotic.
    4. Raymond's wife from #3. She gets on my nerves.
    5. George Costanza's mother from Seinfeld.
    6. Peg Bundy. Giving birth was where her mothering began and ended.
    7. The cast of any 'reality' show featuring a "mom", in the vein of the Real Housewives of whatever or that nutcase with 8 kids; exploiting your children for an income while you show off your half-assed mothering skills – no thanks.
