A MUM and her 19-year-old daughter have admitted that they still shower together in TLC’s sMothered.
Mary, 55, and Brittani, 19, from Jensen Beach, Florida do everything together, including shopping, cosmetic surgery, sharing a bed at night and showers in the mornings.
Mary, who works in a tailor shop, refers to her daughter as “the love of my life.”
She says: “I don’t believe I set out to have a relationship this close to Brittani, it’s something that was supposed to be.”
In a clip from the new series, the pair who describe themselves as having a “spiritual connection” can be seen indulging in their daily routine.
As she steps in the shower Mary can be heard saying “Ah that feels good!”
Mary can be seen scrubbing her daughter’s back while telling her she needs a tan because she’s “so white.”
Britanni, who still lives with her mum because Mary would die of “separation anxiety”, has been showering with her since she was five.
Speaking on the show Brittani says: “When my mom does simple things like washing my hair or washing my body it makes me feel comforted.”
“The best way to start our day is in the shower” says Mary, adding, “I love her and I don’t see anything wrong with it.”
While some might see the mother-daughter relationship as a little odd, Mary says she actually thinks other people are the weird ones.
Speaking to the New York Post she said: “There’s so many mom and daughters out there that aren’t close — and if they think it’s weird, it’s because they’re not close.”
Brittani admits that her own friends find her strong bond with her mum a little unusual, but that doesn’t matter to her.
She told The Post: “It’s my mom, she’s my No. 1 friend, I can tell her anything.”
Mary admits that her tight-knit relationship with her daughter has caused some tension with her live-in boyfriend Frank, but says he just has to accept it.
She adds: “It has caused some issues in my relationship, but he’s got to accept it, that’s how it is. He knows I love him, but I love my daughter more — she’s my life.”
