About a year ago, there was talk that a semi spin-off of Mean Girls called Mean Moms was happening and that Jennifer Aniston might possibly have something to do with it. I kept crossing my fingers that whoever created that rumor had accidentally misspelled Amy Poehler’s name wrong and that my dream of one day watching an entire movie devoted to Regina George’s mom was about to come true. But according to Deadline, Mean Moms is happening and it’s happening with Jennifer Aniston. Cue the countdown to UsWeekly’s “SHE’S FINALLY GOING TO BE A MOM!” cover.
Deadline says Mean Moms is based on a book written by the same woman who wrote the book Mean Girls is based on, and it will be directed by the same dude who did Horrible Bosses 2. If you’re wondering whether or not there will be a scene involving a Burn Book or slut dancing to Jingle Bell Rock, there might be. According to the plot summary on IMDB, it’s basically the same story as Mean Girls: “A happily married mother of two moves from small town America to the high class suburbs and is faced with confronting the cut throat world of competitive parenting.” I’m not sure how I feel about this news, so I’ll just shrug and eat a Toaster Strudel.
No word on whether Jenny will play the happily married mother or one of the mean moms, but I kind of hope it’s one of the mean moms. I’ve always loved that alternate-reality episode of Friends where Rachel Green marries Barry and becomes a snobby suburban bitch.
