Wendy Spero and Her Mom–NY Times on the Fake Trend Beat, Again

9.jpg

In the NY Times, Stephanie Rosenbloom, the fake trend heiress to Jennifer 8 Lee (Rescue Me had a man-date reference last night and we’re never watching again) writes about daughters who love their mothers so much.

One of her chief examples is LA comedian and author Wendy Spero who said:

I was on the phone with her for hours and hours in school. She would literally stay on the phone with me for six hours. No friend would do that. Such insane unconditional support. With a friend, at no point did I feel I could reveal that much of my neuroses.

Spero’s mom is a sex-therapist. She’s used to listening to the shinky. Spero’s also been milking mom for a long, long time.

Her mom’s in her book.

Her mom’s on her audio book.

Then, there’s the mother-daughter stand-up act.

Not that Spero isn’t funny, but couldn’t Rosenbloom looked a little harder for someone? Or is the fake trend beat that taxing?
