What's the story?

TEXAS MULTI MAMAS is a reality series about six Dallas-area mothers who are raising young multiples, and their relationships with each other. The cast, who met through a "moms of multiples" support group, includes Candace Hickey, a forty-something hipster and mother of triplets, Casey Gerwer and part-time nurse Suz Steece, who are both mothers of quads, Southern belle Teryn Todd, who has a daughter and a triplet of boys, and Tonia Tomlin, an entrepreneur and divorced mother of twin girls. The youngest of the gang is the straightforward Stephanie Williams, who is the mother of a son and twin girls. While balancing a household of children, jobs, husbands, and in some cases, dating, the women turn to each other for support when things get tough. But personalities sometimes clash, which leads to some drama between them.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

The show highlights some of the joys and challenges that come with having multiples, as well as the importance of having a strong support network to help moms cope when things get overwhelming. But its real focus is on the relationship between the six women, which often leads to gossipy moments and catty behavior, some of which seem to be a bit orchestrated in order to add some drama to the show.

It's milder than shows like The Real Housewives, but saucy enough to make it an iffy choice for younger viewers. Meanwhile, unless you find watching moms raising multiples particularly interesting, the overall series might leave you wondering why these women have a reality show in the first place.
