Pretty Wicked Moms is a reality television series on Lifetime. The series premiered on June 4, 2013. It follows the lives of six mothers living in Atlanta, Georgia. These particular divas give a whole new meaning to the term ‘competitive motherhood’. If you have missed this new reality series it might worth checking out, that is if you like to watch the trainwrecks in action. The cast is very intriguing, so I had to write about this particular show because at some points these women make me want to punch my flat screen TV. For some reason I can’t look away from the playground like drama.
Series premiere started out with Emily Dees Boulden, hosting a party at Swank with all the moms who were supposed to get all dolled up. Unfortunately, things get heated when Miranda Carlson accidentally steps on Nicole Clemons Noles spoiled little dog named Sommer, earning her a couple nips from the dog. To make the situation worse Nicole N. had never apologized for her dog attacking her and blamed Miranda for the whole ordeal calling her a “drama queen.” Emily and Nicole Bennett-Hragyil talk about having a “makeover day” and wanting to make over Meredith Underwood making her better than she does. Check out a preview of the show after the jump…
Pretty Wicked Moms, with their adorably fashioned toddler children, high-end lifestyle and cynical views on motherhood, will grace our TV screens on Lifetime on Tuesdays at 10:00 pm ET/PT, immediately following another annoying reality show called “Dance Moms.” The cut-throat and crazy world of competitive mothering for these six Atlanta mothers in Lifetime’s all-new unscripted comedy “Pretty Wicked Moms.” It’s a raging, raucous mommy war. Jockeying to be the ultimate mom, this perfectly coiffed and manicured clique will stop at nothing to one-up each other.
Whether it’s extravagant birthday parties for their children, a strict vegan diet for their one-year-olds or masterminding their baby’s social climb (or should we say crawl?) to the top, there’s no end to their plotting and scheming. Knowing the competition among them is fierce, these swanky mothers take motherhood and mischief to an entirely new and outrageous level. As one Pretty Wicked Mom claims, “They all want to be the prettiest, the thinnest, the richest; and their kids to be the smartest.”

Her husband Pete and Miranda’s husband, Chris, have been best friends since kindergarten. Originally from Mississippi and having moved recently to Atlanta with her husband and their daughter, Emily can be found juggling motherhood and managing her fashion boutique round the clock.

They can both be found almost always by each other’s side with Sommer either traveling in her couture dog Louis Vuitton carrier or in her hot pink blinged out baby stroller.

Nicole is extremely concerned about having a extremely healthy lifestyle, keeping her family on a strict diet at all times. Nicole B. and her husband are very health conscious people when it comes to their fitness health and the well-being of their daughter, McKinley. Nicole B. is a self-proclaimed perfectionist and spends lots of time to make home-cooked meals for her family, always ensuring that her daughter only eats food that is unprocessed and nutritious. That means no sugar for McKinley!

The mothers get together for lunch while their husbands watch the children so they can work things out. Nicole B. that cliques have been created, consisting of her and Miranda and Emily, Nicole N. and Meredith. Before Amzie’s party, a friend of Nicole B’s calls her to tell her that while shopping at Emily’s store, an employee had told her that Emily hates Nicole. After hearing the conversation, Nicole’s husband, Craig, refuses to go to Amzie’s birthday party because of how he feels about Emily. During the swanky birthday party, Meredith and Miranda get into a fight over Ledger’s sleep schedule. Watch a clip of the episode: “Amzie’s Super Sweet Second Birthday.” Let me know what you think about these “super moms” and how they handle things.
Meredith doesn’t think Miranda should base her own schedule on her child, it should be the other way around, then calls her fake after Miranda leaves. The day after, Nicole B. shows up to Swank to talk to Emily about their rumors. She then apologizes for not showing up to the party, gives her a gift for her daughter and also tells Emily what her friend had told her about Emily not liking her. Emily gets really defensive and says she never said that and after a heated conversation, Nicole leaves feeling awkward.
Lifetime has ordered nine episodes of “Pretty Wicked Moms,” which is produced by Ellen Rakieten Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Ellen Rakieten, Fiona Kennedy, Chris Costine, Paul Barrosse, Trisha Ashworth and Amy Nobile, alongside Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Noah Pollack of Lifetime. There was lots of drama in the first couple of episodes. I will be watching this show to see what other crazy shenanigans that happens with these women. You’ll see an update on this show every couple of weeks until it finishes. This show trips me out. Some of stupid things Emily says makes me shake my head in disbelief. Will you be watching?
