With Mother’s Day coming our way, we’re getting a jump-start by honoring the TV moms we wish were our own!
There's moms who love, nurture and protect their children, and then there's Beverly Goldberg who takes the term "smother" to a whole other level.
The ultimate matriarch of ABC's '80s sitcom The Goldbergs, Beverly can't help but overly love her children, to an absurd extent. Which means she'll do just about anything for her kids, even if that means making a fool of herself.
"She is the ultimate smother, but you know what? She's not wrong," star Wendi McLendon-Covey told ETonline on The Goldbergs set. "If I had kids I'd probably be the exact same way. Don't apologize for loving your children."
McLendon-Covey brilliantly channels the unbridled affection of Beverly (who is based on series creator/show runner Adam Goldberg's actual mother) and explained that the character just can't control herself when it comes to the happiness of her children.
