As mothers with hectic work schedules, friends Ali Landry and Alison Sweeney treasure their ladies nights, and now, the actresses have parlayed their need for female bonding into a new reality show, “Hollywood Moms Night.”
“It started with moms in the business just because, you know, we’re all sort of in the same place in our lives with kids,” Ali Landry explained to Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Wednesday’s Access Hollywood Live of how their monthly supper club came to be. “Just to get together, have a girls’ night, gossip, have a good time, get away from the children and the hubby.”
“And we cook,” Alison added. “We do a potluck, so everybody has to bring something and we try to do a theme.”
Among their group of “Hollywood Moms” are Denise Richards, LaLa Vasquez and Niecy Nash – the latter of which has a penchant for getting the gals to spill the beans on touchy topics.
“There are things I didn’t want to talk about [on camera], but Niecy drags it out of you,” Alison told Billy and Kit. “Next thing you know, you’re driving home wondering, ‘Whoa – should I have said that?’”
In addition to typical ladies’ night fodder, the women bond over showbiz blunders, such as fashion mistakes and red carpet drama.
“We talk about what it’s like to be in a magazine and be made fun of, or teased on camera when you didn’t wear an outfit right, or something went terribly wrong on the red carpet,” Alison added.
See the ladies in action when “Hollywood Moms Night” premieres on Sunday at 8 PM on the TV Guide Network.
