With Mother’s Day this weekend, we decided to take a look at some of the best — and worst — mothers of les/bi women on TV. Since we’re all a little bit afraid of our mothers, however, no matter how old we are, we also decided to recruit another mother to evaluate these women as Mothers of Women-Loving-Daughters. And who better than the one mother who not only loves her semi-closeted woman-loving daughter, but actually lives with the object of her affection? That’s right — Mama Angela Rizzoli.
Here are seven TV mothers and their official Mama Angela Rizzoli Rating Administration (MARRA).
Pam Fields, Emily’s mom, Pretty Little Liars
“I still don’t understand, but I love you. You’re my child and no one hurts my child.”
Jenna Fitch, Emily’s mom, Skins
“Emily, this is a six-seater table. Whaddya’ want me to do?”
Lenore Pieszecki, Alice’s mom, The L Word
“[Shane and I] kissed. At first, it was casual but then it became … intimate. French.”
