What to expect from Beverly this season now that there is a grandchild?
Now that Beverly has a grandchild on the way, fans can expect her to be even more overbearing and overprotective than ever before. She’s already started making plans for the baby’s future, and she’s not going to let anything get in the way of making sure her grandchild has everything they need.
She is also going to be looking for opportunities to one-up other grandparents, in terms of spoiling her grandchild, taking the baby on her wild crazy adventures and showing the baby off.
What kind of mother will Erica be?
Hayley mentions that Erica is a natural tendency and can be a little selfish. You’re going to see her go through a faze of realizing that her identity is not actually her and a lot of attention is going to be on the baby.
But Wendi had different feelings and thinks we are going to see her be exactly like her mother while denying that she is anything like her and telling Beverly that she’s totally wrong.
Wendi’s Advice to New Moms
Even though Wendi is not a mother herself she did have some advice for new moms as she’s learned from her friends experiences and here is what she had to say.
Wendi’s advice to new moms is simple: don’t sweat the small stuff. Give yourself some Grace because none of this is going to go according to the books.
Make friends with baby wipes because you’re not going to get a shower. And be like a soldier, sleep and eat when you can.
Wendi’s Favorite Goldberg’s Episode
Wendi has a lot of favorite episodes such as the one where she is trying to put her family in the paper during Hands Across America and dinner at The Goldberg’s, but her most favorite are the holiday episodes.
