Neil Haley interviews Diedrich Bader of ABC’s “AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE”

“AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE” (Tuesdays from 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET)
Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three, raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring. Katie’s perfectly imperfect world is upended when her neighbor’s decision to move notches her up from her ideal social standing and sets her on a path to ensure that doesn’t happen, regardless of the consequences. Luckily, her husband, Greg Otto, supports her in every way possible, but with a dash of reality thrown in as they work to ensure their children do not end up like everyone else. However, that isn’t going to be easy when her oldest teenage daughter, Taylor, is already set on the “perfect” path; middle son Oliver has one goal in life: to be rich; and her youngest, Anna Kat, needs a little extra help navigating life. Then there are her friends, Angela and Doris, who help Katie keep it all in perspective and are the allies she needs in a town where “keeping it real” is not a compliment. Diedrich Bader is an American actor, voice actor and comedian. Many know him for his roles as Oswald Lee Harvey on the long-running comedy “The Drew Carey Show” and Lawrence from the film “Office Space.
