Season 3 of I Love A Mama’s Boy premiered on 19 June 2022 as it continued to document the lives of several couples, as the girlfriends in each pair try to become the main lady in their man’s life and compete with his overbearing most. The returning couple Emily and Shekeb has been on the show since the very beginning and so has Shekeb’s mom Laila Sekander, whom we are going to talk about in the rest of the writing.
Laila Sekander On TLC’s I Love A Mama’s Boy
Meet Laila Sekander who in TLC’s words makes a love triangle with her son Shekeb Sekander and his girlfriend Emily Chu, i.e., every time she was tested she made it clear that she disapproves of Emily for her son.
As for now, the previous season ended with Emily losing her temper and lashing out at Shekeb and Laila over the promise ring given to her instead of an engagement ring.
Apparently, when the story of mom Laila and the couple Shekeb and Emily first aired, the fans felt sorry for Emily because of the way her boyfriend and his mother treated her. As the show proceeds, viewers watched Laila hurling abuse at her, calling her names, and going above and beyond to make Emily feel that she is not welcome into the family. Almost all of Season 1 was just this. For the longest time, Emily put up with Laila’s unacceptable behavior because she was head over heels in love with Shekeb and wanted their relationship to work. But, anyway, the end of the first season sees them split up after an explosive fight between Emily and her could-be mother-in-law.
Then Season 2 happened, and Emily and Shekeb patched things up. But, fans were completely surprised to see a different side of Emily. From stating that women should not go to work to demanding a $40,000 engagement ring, she clearly left her fans disappointed. Albeit the fans were still rooting for her and Shekeb to work.
Even Laila reluctantly agreed to give Emily her blessings to the couple if Emily passed one of her tests. Laila thus convinces her son to give Emily a promise ring instead of an engagement ring. Laila then conditions that if Emily accepts it gracefully she would welcome her with open arms; but that if she makes a fuss about it, the couple should break up. Shekeb, an actor at Houghton Talent, Inc., agrees to it and presents Emily with a promise ring, and the unthinkable happens.
Much to Laila’s delight, Emily gets furious, throws the ring away, and storms off. Shekeb hurt, decides to keep his distance from Emily.
Watching the then followed another ugly brawl between Laila and Emily fans were for good confused about what to expect from them in Season 3.
