About Us

The Mouthy Housewives, a funny, cheeky and always entertaining advice site, is the next generation’s “Dear Abby.” If Abby were less dear and just a bit more tipsy. Written by a team of five popular humor bloggers, The Mouthy Housewives give hilarious and helpful tips on everything from parenting to relationships to housework to social networking to sex.

The Mouthy Housewives have twelve children among them, ranging in age from 2 years old to 17 years old, including a stepchild and a set of twins, five husbands and a terrifying number of in-laws.

They have been featured in various prestigious online and print publications across the country, in addition to television and radio programs. The Mouthy Housewives also presented a panel entitled Dear Abby 2.0, on giving advice in the blogosphere at the 2010 BlogHer conference and hosted the Come As You Are Party at BlogHer ’12.

Wendi Aarons is an award winning humor writer who lives in Austin with her husband and two sons. Before breeding, she worked for Walt Disney Pictures, Warner Bros. and a few strange advertising agencies. Her humor pieces have appeared in McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Wall Street Journal blog, HybridMom, The Stir, Austin Woman Magazine, Parentwise: Austin, and many other places that she can’t remember because of her raging Benadryl habit. She is also the co-producer of the Austin stage show Listen To Your Mother. She is currently writing her first book, blogging at wendiaarons.com and crying in her closet with her geriatric cat. Find her on twitter at @wendiaarons.


Marinka has eyes in the back of her head and very strong peripheral vision, which means that even while she’s at her computer, she is always watching the children. And whatever gourmet meal is on the stove. When not practicing the domestic arts, Marinka enjoys a lot of highbrow stuff that you probably wouldn’t understand, and Bravo’s finest offerings. She has appeared in McSweeney’s, Redbook, AOL ParentDish, ABC News Online and The New York Post. She has also graced the cover of Vogue, albeit in an alternate universe, so you may not be able to find that particular issue. She blogs at Motherhood in NYC and tweets at @MarinkaNYC.


Kristine is a married mother of two young boys, and a New Yorker freshly transplanted to Texas. A former high school English teacher, Kristine is trying to live her dream of becoming a bonafide writer by being a wiseass on the Internet. She has written for various other online publications since 2005, including a music site that allowed her the opportunity to interview bands like Wolfmother and Band of Horses. It’s unfortunate that no one knows either the site or the musicians. Her current blogging home is at Wait in the Van. She also happens to enjoy chocolate. And twitter: @waitinthevan.
