    "I am a designer. I am not someone who simply loves and appreciates pretty furniture and writes about it. I've designed celebrity homes, I have multiple lines of products in the global marketplace and Courtney Cachet is its own brand. That said, I have a keen understanding of marketing and consumerism, but there are some things I just never get.
    For example, what the f*ck is a Mom Cave?
    I'm no moron, I know what it means. Clearly, this was some marketing team's answer to the ever-so-on-trend Man Cave. Duh. What I don't get is how women across America bought into it."

    That's a pretty good article. She does a good job of pointing out how super-sexist the "mom cave" idea is, and also how it excludes women without children. I don't know who this lady is, but I like the way she thinks.

    I see this was from June 2011 -- was it a reaction to the announcement of Beth's show, or was Mom Cave a thing before then? First I heard of such a thing was Beth's shitty show.

    I'm guessing she thinks they wouldn't have a TV show about it if nobody were going to get suckered into it.

    Is that a room in someone's actual house or is that a life-sized version of a Barbie Motor Home?

    Good post to the article: "Mom Cave = another room for mom to clean."

    ~ For the moms without a Consuela, that is.

    Why don't they just come out and say it. People are annoyed by their spouses and kids and want a "cave" to be alone in. Quit faking it.

    What happened to the "good old days" when you could just chain them up in the basement?
