Until recently, opinionated, confident, unapologetic, plump Katie Otto (Katy Mixon) has been the third fattest housewife in Westport, Connecticut. This is exactly where she wants to be. So when her chubbier neighbor moves away and she becomes the second fattest housewife, Katie becomes determined to regain her title.

A great comedy. The cast is wonderful and I can't wait to watch the next episode. As a size 14 mom myself, I understand the struggle that society puts on us. This show has realistic moments and made me laugh out loud, which is something few comedies have been able to do lately.

I only started to watch American Housewife because Mike & Molly had concluded but I still wanted my Katy Mixon fix - I'm so glad that I did.
The series follows the life of Katy Otto, the second fattest woman in Westport. She is married to Gregg, a university professor and has three children; Their eldest is Taylor, a sporty teenage girl who just wants to fit in with her peers. Oliver is their middle child, he is sarcastic and savvy and wants nothing more than to prove to the rich people of Westport that he is one of them and then there's Kay's favourite, Anna-Kat, sweet and innocent with one "flaw", she has OCD.
I think that after playing the main stars sister in Mike & Molly, a show that evolves around an over weight couple, that Katy Mixon is by far the best person to play this role - she has several years experience on a show with a similar storyline - and she is doing it proud.
She is a wife, a mother and a friend who is just trying to stand out among the wealthy, pretentious, skinny housewives and their privileged children after moving to her new hometown of Westport, Connecticut in order to get better schooling for her children.
It's a show you can relate to that will have you laughing every week. I can't wait for Season 2!
