Cristina Bertolli appeared on TLC’s sMothered with her mother Kathy Crispino. The couple has been a staple since the first season of the show. The show unfolds some of the bizarre things a mother-daughter duo does to prove the closeness of their relationship. They have been hailed as “the sanity of the show” by viewers.
Whereas, the duo act, who describe themselves as ‘trashy Italians,’ are more like best friends than family and tend to behave in ways most wouldn’t – including spending all their spare time together.

Cristina Bertolli On sMothered
Cristina Bertolli interviewed with Chicago Tribune and opened up about her time filming the show. She revealed that her photographer friend got the casting call and forwarded it to Cristina. The person believed that Cristina and Kathy would be perfect for the show.
Cristina said, “I wrote in and told the casting director about my mom and me. My mom and I did a FaceTime interview with him, but we didn’t think we would get picked! Then we got a call a few months later that we had gotten picked for the show. We had just done the interview process for fun, and did not expect anything”.
“My mom and I have this over-the-top relationship. She is my best friend and is my first phone call for everything. I thought that made us unique in the sense [that] other moms and daughters are close, but they don’t have the strong bond we have,” Cristina told in an interview with Beth Delany. “I see my mom every day, seven days a week and I think that made us unique.”
They started filming the show in January 2019. She said, “A camera crew would come to my house and (give us microphones). Then, we just had to be natural and go about our day”. Talking about what viewers could expect to see, Cristina shared, “My mom and I love to have fun and we like to tease each other. It’s all done in Italian love! Viewers can expect a lot of laughs and a lot of fun. The final episode is my son’s Communion party”.
She added, “There is, unfortunately, an incident with one of my husband’s family members. It wasn’t the best situation, but viewers can look forward to some drama but a lot of laughs”.
