Oh my Barb.
On last night’s “Bachelor” finale, leading man Peter Weber went against his extremely involved parents’ wishes and decided to get back together with Madison Prewett.
Weber’s mother, Barb, had already made it clear she wanted to essentially inhale Peter’s onetime fiancée, Hannah Ann Sluss, whom Weber split up with. While clips of her son getting engaged, breaking up and then getting back together with Prewett played, a camera stayed steady on the emotive mom, catching her every eye roll and look of disappointment. At some point, the camera caught her saying something in Spanish, prompting lip readers of Twitter to spring into action to decode her snarky remark.
When she was finally given the chance to speak her mind, Barb went all in. “He’s going to fail to succeed,” she said of her son’s relationship, knocking his new girlfriend down.
The internet could not get enough of her messy reactions, crowning her queen of chaotic evil.
“This morning I am thankful: -for sunshine -for my sweet pup -for the roof over my head -that Barb is not my mother in law,” wrote @FriendofClare.
“Barb would conquer the role of a Disney Channel original movie villain,” wrote @NotElijah.
Some shared screenshots of Barb’s shameless Instagram comments, which showed her asking one of Peter’s contestants, Kelley Flanagan, to grab lunch.
Most importantly, her exasperated expressions were compared to the ultimate eye-roll champion, Liz Lemon.
Pray for Barb’s DMs.
