It’s the day before the big Spring Gala and Katie (Katy Mixon) has everything under control or so she thought. She has Nathan Fillion riding in on an elephant in the middle of her Bollywood spectacular event but when she receives a dark warning phone call from Stacy Clouser (Kathleen Rose Perkins) that “they” were out to ruin her Spring Gala, things start to fall apart.
Before Katie knows it “they” have called PETA about her elephant. Katie easily fixes this with the help of her arch enemy’s assistant. Together they turn a camel into an elephant with some elaborate craft supplies. However, she finds that someone has gone in for the kill and canceled everything she had ordered for the gala. Just as Katie was about to throw in the towel and decide that “they” had succeeded in beating her, her family reminds her that they have her back.
With eight hours to go the Otto family along with the help of friends pull off the impossible Spring Gala from scratch. Oliver (Daniel DiMaggio) brings in his dance group as the Bollywood dancers. Taylor (Meg Donnelly) and Anna-Kat (Julia Butters) oversee floral arrangements. Of course, those just happen to come out of Chloe Brown Mueller (Jessica St. Clair) personal garden that she wasn’t aware of but that did not matter really. Angela (Carly Hughes) brought her Buddhist décor from her home as decorations for the event. Of course, why she has an 8-foot-tall Buddha statue I am not sure, but she did, so it worked out. Doris (Ali Wong) was in charge of seating which included a trip to the discount store, but she refused to pay discount prices. Greg (Diedrich Bader) oversaw set up. Grant (Ravi Patel) Greg’s new assistant uncle owns an Indian food truck who was able to provide the food. So by the start of the Gala, everything was in place and it was a huge success.
Katie was full of pride, relief and a whole lot of “suck its” during the Spring Gala. She even thought she had found who had sabotaged not just her Spring Gala but also Stacy Clouser’s but it turned out it was really Suzanne (Jeannette Sousa) even though only the audience finds out the truth.
This is the season finale for ‘American Housewife‘ but I am excited to say that ABC has renewed it for Season 3. I am so excited. As I have said many times this is MY family. I love the realness that the Otto family portrays. I love the back and forth banter within the family. I love the “love” that is in their family. It will be a long summer but if you have not seen ‘American Housewife‘ I hope you binge watch it this summer and be ready for the new season this fall on ABC.
