Midlife Gals Gone Wild

Take two single, eccentric, cocktail-guzzling, 50-something socialite-wannabe sisters from Texas.

Move them back home with their addled, octogenarian mom.

Toss in a healthy dose of haughty Austin “ladies who lunch” who wouldn’t be caught dead with these “ladies who liquid lunch.”

Sprinkle on a few (very few) pot-bellied good-old-boy suitors.

Add one big-butted, beehive-haired, leopard-print-wearing caregiver who doesn’t give a crap what happens to anyone.

And what have you got?

The Midlife Gals: Necessary Insanity, of course – a comedy of menopausal proportions launching tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

Join Kelly “KK” Jackson (the control-freak one) and Sally “SalGal” Jackson (the in-denial one) as they bring you all the news that’s unfit to print from their tension-filled abode – namely, how not to take the gas pipe while grappling with day-to-day-to-day-to-day realities of parenting an elderly parent. To break up the tension, the gals also review movies they’ve never seen, dish about current events, and visit with an embarrassing array of local whack-jobs.

“We’re The Smothers Brothers with bosoms – and a taste for hard liquor,” said Kelly.

“Shut up,” said Sally.

“Clearly, giving these women their own show was a huge mistake,” said Philip Recchia, BlogTalkRadio’s director of programming.

Nonetheless, mark The Midlife Gals on your calendar.

Because insanity is a terrible thing to waste.
