Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Advises Ginger Zee About ‘Judgy’ and ‘Rude’ Moms: ‘We Should Warn You About the Mom World!’
Sunday will be the first Mother’s Day for Ginger Zee — and she’s already dealing with some of the outside-the-home challenges that come with being a new mom.
One of those hurdles for the ABC chief meteorologist and Dancing with the Stars contestant? “Sanctimommies” — a term Orange Is the New Black star Alysia Reiner explores in the newest installment of PEOPLE’s Mom Talk series.
“It’s hard as a working mom, and what I have found is that all moms just want to do it right and just want to feel like they’re doing the right thing,” Reiner, 45, tells Zee, 35, who is mom to Adrian Benjamin, 4 months. “So the stay-at-home moms might have their opinions about you, just because they want to feel like they’re doing it right — just like you want to feel like you’re doing it right.”

“You’re gonna see that moms are assh—-,” she adds, prompting a chorus of laughs. “And they’re mean to each other. That’s why I’m so happy you guys are normal moms because some moms are so judgy, and they make you feel like crap.”
Reiner, who is mom to 7-year-old daughter Livia Charles, agrees. “What I’ve learned, and what I believe, is that there is no right. There’s just right for you. There is no perfect … we all just want to feel like we’re doing it right, and we’re scared that we’re not.”
