Real and raw
27 September 2016 | by iuliana_vasnicSee all my reviews

I really love the show because it presents the life of Sammy (a single working mom raising three kids) in a very realistic manner.

I am not parent (let alone a single parent), but after watching the show I feel very connected to them and there is nothing more refreshing than "saying it like it is" on a comedy series.

Do you know/imagine how complex it is (rewarding, funny and hard) to raise 3 girls as a single parent in Hollywood? :)

Well this show hits the nail on the head.

Sammy's sense of humour helps her deal with work situations, raising the girls with love, getting to meet guys

No b*****it kind of show
