We missed a week of playing Name That TV Mom! so for all of you patient game players who didn’t quite guess our mystery mama from 9/15, the wait is finally over. Our previous mystery mom was another Patricia: Patricia Richardson of Home Improvement fame, to be exact. She played TV mom Jill Taylor on the ABC hit show.
For newcomers to this regular series, in each edition we’ll provide five hints pointing you to a TV mom – either past or present. From those hints you, lovely readers, will have the opportunity to offer your best guesses at solving the puzzle in the comments section following the article.
The rules are there are no rules. You can Google, talk amongst yourselves, call your neighbor, your sister, the TV savant in your life…You can even ask questions – either in the comments or at our Facebook page: TV Moms: The good. The bad. The crazy. Good-natured smack talk is not only welcomed, but encouraged. The answer to this puzzle will be revealed in the next offering.
Now, should you be the first to guess who our mystery mama is, your reward is having the joy of basking in the gloriousness of your brilliance.
With that, let’s…
Name That TV Mom!
Hint #1: This week’s mystery mama is currently playing her role as TV mom to two of Boston’s finest and one less than squeaky clean adult child. Her role is that of a supporting cast member, but that doesn’t make her scenes any less memorable.
Hint #2: It was in the show’s second season (that recently closed with their summer finale) that our TV mom went through a divorce and moved in with her daughter’s best friend.
Hint #3: The show in which our TV mom currently co-stars can be found on a cable network channel best known for its drama.
Hint #4: In her current role our TV mom is meddlesome, loving, and fiercely protective of her children. Her meddling ways increased when she took a job where two of her children work.
Hint #5: From mobsters to police officers our TV mom has worked with both side of the law. She was also a TV mom in the former show that cut to black in 2007.
Alright…Any ideas about who our incredible TV mom might be? If not, no worries, toss on those thinking caps and use the tools at your fingertips, then hit the comments section with your best guesses.
While we’re looking for her current role, earn bonus ‘woo hoo’ points if you can name both of the roles and the names of the shows mentioned in the hints.
