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.

13 Tear-Jerker Shows To Watch While You Wait For This Is Us Season 5

Published

on


There is no show like This Is Us on television; it’s a wholesome family show that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be angry all before the hour is up.

However, there are many shows that come close to giving you those same fuzzy feelings and will have you falling in love with the cast as quickly as you fell in love with Pearsons.

5 Possible Theories About Who Madison’s Doctor and His Daughter Sadie Could Be on ‘This Is Us’

While we’re waiting for This Is Us Season 5 to boot back up (and it’ll be awhile due to the coronavirus postponing productions), you can binge-watch these shows instead. 

They’ll help fill the void and guarantee an ugly-cry or two. Sometimes, a good cry is just necessary! 

1. Parenthood

Parenthood
Before there was This Is Us, there was Parenthood. If you love This Is Us because of how much the Pearson family loves each other and enjoy a good cry then I suggest you meet the Bravermans. This family will leave you teary-eyed within five minutes of watching. You’ll immediately start connecting with the characters and seeing parts of your own family in them. And if you need more convincing, it stars Lauren Graham who plays Lorelai Gilmore on the hit, Gilmore Girls.
 

2. Chasing Life

Chasing Life
Just the premise of the show makes us want to cry: a 20-something-year-old aspiring journalist finds her world is turned upside down when she is diagnosed with cancer. And while cancer in itself is always depressing, the beauty of the series is in how April Carver handles the diagnosis, battles the illness with determination and grace, and finds the will to live when it would be understandable for her to give up. Not to mention she has a good group of gals by her side!
 

3. One Tree Hill

One Tree Hill
What started as a story about two small-town step-brothers fighting over a spot on the high-school basketball team grew into a tearjerking drama filled with life lessons, suspenseful twists, betrayals, lifelong friendships and an emphasis on the importance of family. As longtime fans know, there is only one tree hill and it’s your home.

4. Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls
Since we’re on the topic, we have to include Gilmore Girls on this list. If by some chance you haven’t gotten sucked in by the mother-daughter dynamic between Lorelai and Rory or by the small town charm, you need to run to Stars Hollow ASAP. Their swift dialogue and close relationship makes us want to be friends with them. It’s actually the reason Netflix revived the show years later. Plus, this is the birthplace of our love for Milo Ventimiglia, who played bad boy Jess, and our coffee addiction.
 

5. Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights
Even if football isn’t your thing, you’ll still be captivated by the high school football team at the heart of the show. There’s definitely a camaraderie around sports, especially in a small town that obsesses over the local team. You’ll get glossy-eyed as these characters deal with family hardships, failure, first love, grief and the realization that the glory of being a high school jock isn’t forever.

6. The Fosters

The Fosters
Freeform shows are good at two things — uniting people and making them cry. Two moms, Stef and Lena, raise a non-traditional family; some biological children, some adoptive and some fosters who have been damaged by the system. With such a mix, the painful storylines are aplenty and emotional struggles and societal issues are at the forefront.

Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley Announce Name of Bourbon Brand

Published

Ian Somerhalder and Paul Welsey reveal bourbon name

During the WizardWorld-hosted virtual reunion for the cast of The Vampire Diaries, the Salvatore brothers, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, who played Damon and Stefan Salvatore, respectively, revealed the name of their joint bourbon brand. 

The brand is called “Brother’s Bond,” Ian revealed, adding that it pays tribute to the alcoholic drink that bonded their characters on The CW series from 2009 to 2017. 

“Here it is. Our passion. Our baby,” Ian wrote on Instagram. 

“Time, quality, and passion distilled for you and me,” he added adding that anyone over the age of 21 can go to brothersbondbourbon.com to sign up.

The duo announced that they were developing the liquor in September of 2019.  “Can you imagine if the Salvatore brothers had their OWN bourbon? Well, it’s coming! @paulwesley and I have been working our asses off with our incredible team to make this happen,” Ian wrote on Instagram at the time

During the Twitch stream on May 27, the actors revealed that they’ve been developing the taste from the ground up and ensuring it was smooth and sweet on the palate.  

“Every single aspect of this we designed ourselves,” Somerhalder said during the virtual reunion, which also included Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert), Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan), and Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood), among others. 

“This is our baby,” Ian said from his Airstream. He explained that the bourbon is a culmination of their hard work and journey together.

If you were a fan of TVD, you know that bourbon bonded the brothers and defined their kinship. They may have disagreed on a lot, but they always agreed on bourbon. 

It’s unclear when the brand will be available in stores, but we’ll update as soon as we find out!
