TV show description: This comedy series stars author and fashionista Jill Kargman as a version of herself who’s navigating the treacherous and elite ecosystem of New York’s Upper East Side — and the uber-wealthy mommy clique that inhabits this outrageous place.
A New Yorker through and through, Jill Weber (Kargman) embraces her quirky and somewhat unconventional life. She has a loving husband named Andy (Andy Buckley), three great kids, and a best friend who shares the same love for donuts and snarky retorts, Vanessa Wrigley (KK Glick).
However, the posh and decadent world of Andy’s classically blue-blooded family slowly takes over as Jill valiantly tries to resist all the delicious temptations and perks that their wealth can afford.
From accepting her in-laws’ aristocratic (and perhaps cloudy) legacy, to interviewing for a family burial plot at the most prestigious cemetery, Jill constantly battles staying true to herself while weighing the benefits of fitting in.
Jill’s frenemies and in-laws only fuel the pressure for her to conform. They include the status-obsessed Weber family matriarch, Candace (Joanna Cassidy); brother-in-law Lex (Sean Kleier) and his wife, Brooke (Abby Elliott). The latter reigns over a group of quintessential Upper East Side “mombots” with an iron credit card.
Episode #30 — Blood Bath
The Weber and von Weber families are thrown into a tizzy when Hazel gets her period but that’s nothing compared with what happens when someone from their past appears on The Wendy Williams Show and spills more tea than the Boston Tea Party.
First aired: September 13, 2017.
