As Soap Central previously reported, the actress and her five-year-old daughter, Natalia, star in the series, which Stafford says is much more cutting edge than her previous show, The Stafford Project.
"[Nickelodeon] came to me after seeing [my previous project] and taking a look at my website, which is all about me doing life and motherhood as a single chick," says the actress. "They wanted some sort of single mom, cutting edge, comedic show on their NickMom site, something to watch when the kids are asleep or off of school. They wanted something relatable where moms can see themselves and empathize and laugh at the truth."
So what exactly can fans expect from The Secret Mind of a Single Mom? "It's pretty much my daughter humiliating me," she admits of the two-minute episodes. "She's truly the smart one, which is what she is in life, and these are little vignettes of everyday stuff, like the mom and daughter getting into a fight about how a sandwich should or shouldn't be cut. One episode has the mom trying to get something going with this hot guy and the daughter, with just two comments, completely ends it. Like with The Stafford Project, I'm pretty much making fun of myself. As you know, self-deprecation is my friend -- and sometimes my enemy."
The Secret Mind of a Single Mom debuts on Monday, June 15, on NickMom.com.
