Katy Mixon Is a Firecracker In Real Life, and On 'American Housewife' (Episode 85)
7 days ago
"American Housewife" star Katy Mixon plays Katie Otto, a strong-minded wife and mother who doesn't quite fit in with all the perfect wives and mothers in their wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut. But that's not going to stop Katy from doing things her way, and hopefully instilling some sort of values in her three children as well. Mixon landed the role on the show, which was originally titled "The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport" -- a name they quickly ditched — soon after wrapping six seasons of "Mike & Molly," opposite Melissa McCarthy. Mixon recently stopped by IndieWire's TURN IT ON to talk about AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE, what it's like to graduate to being No. 1 on the call sheet and how the show may depict the most realistic marriage in comedy. But first, Mixon noted that she was just weeks away from giving birth to her second child, and how her real-life motherhood has coincided with playing a mom on TV.
