A mother who appeared with her son on Monday’s premiere episode of the “new and improved” Fear Factoris angry with the show’s producers for editing her to appear super-creepy!
Anyone who caught Monday’s episode of the show surely noticed the, um, “close” relationship between mother and son team Monica and Mattius. The pair were seen holding hands, hugging and holding each other throughout the entire episode. Even host Joe Rogan noticed the duo’s touchy feely tendencies, prompting him to quip, “I hug my mom every time I see her … but then I let go.”
(Speaking of creepy, am I the only one that noticed how bad Joe Rogan looks these days? Seriously, he looks like someone’s creepy uncle.)
Anyway, Monica was apparently appalled and angry once she saw that she was “edited” into looking like she and her son had something freaky going on. She told TMZ, “In no way, shape, or form am I inappropriate with my son. I’m broken hearted. Joe Rogan … shame on you. You are a father. How dare you talk about my son that way?”
She’s also threatening to sue (of course). Maybe if she does, she’ll win money and she can buy a cozy little lovenest house for her and her son. (I’m kidding…kind of.)
The Ashley snored her way through the painfully boring two-hour episode on Monday and thought that the creepy mother and son team was the only interesting part. First of all, the mom must have had that kid at the age of 10 or something because they looked more like they were brother and sister.
Here’s The Ashley’s opinion on the whole thing: Though I’m sure producers picked up on the creepiness and played it up once they got the footage on the editing table, but it wouldn’t take much to make them look that way. The pair massaged each other’s shoulders and cuddled throughout the entire episode. At one point, in an effort to show the other contestants just how studly her son is, Monica pulls up her son’s muscle tank to reveal his beefy chest and abs. Nope…nothing creepy about that, right?
