Find out who was mad at her daughter for not telling her she was “dead,” which spoiled “Game of Thrones,” and which mom needs to “do some work on my ass” as Jimmy Kimmel honors mom.
Everyone loves a good/bad ‘bad tweet’, but there is something much sexier and healthier about texting from mom.
Nobody quite knows how to say — well, something — like my mom. That’s why we found ourselves smiling all the way through the latest Mother’s Day tradition, “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Once again, the Kimmel team spent the year collecting real texts from their various celebrity guests and getting them to share this stuff on camera. And again, the celebrity moms didn’t disappoint, providing totally awkward, awkward, and bizarre texts like we all got at least once.
Who are we kidding? We’ve had it more than once.
Whether it’s a mom hitting her kid for Pitbull tickets or criticizing their latest project, there’s just something about that unfiltered truth that only a mom can get away with.
“Your show was sloppy last night!” Andy Cohen’s mother once sent him a hilarious text message. “Playing poo games with Laura Linney isn’t fun. Get yourself.”
We were dying Rachel Brosnahan sharing her mother’s angry text, criticizing her daughter for not telling her she “died in a hole somewhere.”

“I can’t believe you didn’t tell me you were dead. How dare you,” Brosnahan’s mother wrote. “Your father is crazy too.” There is an explanation for this, but it was funny to hear it without context.
But while Brosnahan’s mother was feeding with her not Spoiling something, Kristen Bell was in the opposite boat. She and her mother were fans of Game of Thrones, but Belle lives in California and her mother is on the East Coast. This means my mom is watching the show Hours Before Belle could – however, she brazenly spoiled the development of the massive Season 6 finale (fans know the rage)!
Bill’s face said it all.
You should check out the video to see Sanda Oh’s mother giving a masterclass in passive aggressive criticism, Eric Andre’s mother tying rumba and misogyny together into one story, and Josh Gad representing all of us who received a long, rambling story message from my mom that we couldn’t decipher if we were Tom Hanks In “The Da Vinci Code”.

Then there’s Luke’s mother Brian, who asked him if he would care if I went to a spa for a massage, and “to remove all the hair and dry the skin off my face.” We have no idea why she asked him this. But we loved her closing sentence: “Damn, I need to do some work on my ass.”
Brian quickly explained to Kimmel viewers, “Now, it’s not her real butt. Her butt is the same as her whole body. It’s a Southern thing; believe me!”
Check out the video above for those full texts, and more mom bullshit from Jimmy O Yang, Shaun White, Will Arnett, and Ike Barinholtz. And maybe share your mom’s favorite Mother’s Day texts this year.
We’re sure she’ll love it because Josh Gad is sure his mom will probably never talk to him again after he shared it – no matter what.
