It’s almost time for sMother’s Day.
TLC’s “sMothered” season finale airs July 28 — and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at a blowup between Cher Hubsher and her mom, Dawn. The reality TV show, co-produced by The Post, shines a spotlight on close — perhaps too close — mother-daughter relationships. (One pair got their boobs done at the same time — and another bathes together.)
But the breakout stars are definitely Cher and Dawn, who seem comparatively normal considering their extreme “closeness” mostly consists of making the younger Hubsher’s husband feel like a “third wheel.”
In the clip above, the maternal force of nature gets heated about feeling left out of the planning process for mommy-to-be Cher’s upcoming gender reveal party.
Catch full episodes Sundays at 10 p.m. on TLC. Until then, catch up with The Post’s chat with the mother-daughter duo:
Cher, 27, lives on the Upper East Side, while mom Dawn, 59, lives in Florida — but “distance does not keep us apart,” says Dawn.
“A lot of mothers and daughters will say, ‘We spoke today already, so I don’t need to call her again, I know she’s good,’ ” says Cher, a nurse and dating coach. “But for us, we’re not just calling to check in, we’re calling to talk about our day, or if something happens we want to share it.”
That’s an understatement: In “sMothered,” both women are glued to their phones and in constant contact. They text all day and pull up FaceTime for outfit consultations. “Whenever I go to Florida, I can raid her closet. When she comes to New York, she doesn’t need to pack much — she raids mine,” says Cher.
On “sMothered,” Cher’s hubby, Jared, a doctor, seems frustrated by the women’s co-dependency, dubbing himself the “third wheel” in his own marriage.
“[But] it’s not a weird thing,” says Cher. “To other people maybe it is, but this is what we’re used to.”
You might recognize Cher from her 2007 appearance on MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16,” where viewers were first privy to her tight bond with her mom.
What’s the Florida native been doing between then and now? She followed up “Sweet 16” with 2008’s “Exiled,” a reality show involving a trip to the jungles of Panama. She then went to the University of Florida, where she met Jared.
“We met our freshman year and were college sweethearts, we got engaged at the end of college and then married one year later,” says Hubsher, 28. She graduated in 2012 and they got married in 2013. They’ve since moved to NYC, where Jared’s doing a residency in plastic surgery.
Check out this four-part series of exclusive interviews with The Post, featuring the TLC “sMothered” cast — Cathy and Cristina, Sunhe and Angelica, Cher and Dawn, and Sandra and Mariah — spilling the dirt on all their daughter-mama drama. All episodes are still streaming on TLC.
