It may be Mother’s Day, but it’s important to remember that not all relationships between mother’s and their children are ideal. 

Not all mother’s have been warm and nurturing towards their children which has resulted in a lot of pain and mommy issues. 

While daddy issues are more common, there’s a handful of characters who suffer because of absent or overbearing mother’s, mother’s who pushed too hard, or even, abusive mother’s. 

On the other hand, some mother’s are so close with their children, the relationship teeters on obsessive. 

Either way, none of these relationships are healthy due to awful parenting. 

Which other characters with mommy issues would you add to the list?

1. Adam Carrington – Dynasty

Adam Carrington - Dynasty
Adam’s mommy issues are the reason he pushed his mother, Alexis, headfirst into the fireplace and told the doctors to reconstruct her new face to look like Fallon’s. He’s so overprotective of the mother that “abandoned him,” he’s consumed with rage whenever someone says anything insulting about her.
 

2. Erin Lindsay – Chicago PD

Erin Lindsay - Chicago PD
Lindsay’s childhood was messy. Her dad was abusive and her mom was a drug addict. Her mother’s addiction carried into Linday’s adulthood and she was a continuous bad influence in her life until Lindsay accepted a job at the FBI and left town.
 

3. Norman Bates – Bates Motel

Norman Bates - Bates Motel
Norman had a dysfunctional, hypersexualized relationship with his mother who was domineering and very controlling of her son. He eventually killed her, made it look like a suicide and spoke to “Mother” as if she were still alive.

4. Cheryl Blossom – Riverdale

Cheryl Blossom - Riverdale
Cheryl’s sassiness masks her fragile mental state. Her parents blamed her for the death of her twin brother, Jason, and her mother, Penelope, resented her and put her through years of emotional abuse and torture. Being devoid of love and affection from her parents also forced her to put up many walls.
 

5. Rafael Solano – Jane the Virgin

Rafael Solano - Jane the Virgin
Rafael spent his whole life wondering why his mother abandoned him when he was just four-years-old. When they finally reconnected reconnect, Elena dropped an adoption bombshell on him and eventually, he learned that she was the crime lord, Mutter. To this day, Raf continues to search for his birth parents so that he can learn more about himself.

Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds

Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds

Watching a show without your dog can be “ruff.”

A new report by Rover.com found that as Americans increased their TV and streaming habits amid the pandemic, they have done so with a furry friend by their side. 

Per the report, 57% of dog parents admitted to waiting for their dog to get into the room before watching a show. 

Now, that isn’t entirely surprising because if you are a dog owner, you know dogs are great watching buddies… unless you have a dog like mine who barks at any animal on the screen. That makes things a bit more difficult, but still proves that he’s attentive! 

The report found that 78% of Americans said they watch TV with their dogs very often or always. 

Surprisingly, dogs were ranked #1 when asked who people prefer to chill out and watch TV with, with 40% of parents saying they’d choose their dog over a partner, friends, or even kids. And that’s because a majority of pet parents believe their pups are actively watching or reacting to what’s happening on the screen. (See my point above about my dog barking at animals on the screen!) 

To make the binge-watching experience that much better for their pets, 70% have admitted to accommodating their pup by allowing them on the couch, giving them blankets, and even moving over so the dog is comfortable. 

60% of pet parents even believe their dog has a favorite TV show, which would explain why 80% of dog parents admit to leaving their TV on for dogs when they’re not home. 

The most popular genres? Comedy and action, which makes sense – after a long day of lounging and taking walks, Fido needs a good laugh or to get invested in a dramatic car chase! 

During such uncertain times, there’s definitely comfort in knowing that you always have a TV buddy by your side! 

And let’s be honest… is there anything your dog isn’t doing with you these days?

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama 'Elite' for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members

We’ve got some elite news!

Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!

The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals. 

Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes. 

The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.

It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021. 

The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up. 

Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
