Wendi McLendon-Covey talks the perils of starring in an '80s-set comedy

Tonight’s premiere of the new ABC comedy The Goldbergs, a semi-autobiographical look at exec producer Adam F. Goldberg’s childhood in the ’80s, cannot come soon enough for star Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids, Reno 911!), who plays the family’s matriarch: “I try to keep it realistic, like, this is what a woman of that age in that era would’ve worn, and sometimes, the jumpsuits are a little bedazzled. I forget when I’m on the Sony lot that I’m dressed like that, and I go walking around in my wig and my jumpsuit, and the show hasn’t aired yet, so no one knows who I am or what I’m doing there looking like that, and people look at me like, What is your problem? And I think, Oh, I forgot, I should’ve probably thrown a robe on or something. People throw shade at me,” she tells EW, laughing. “It’s very rude. It hurts my feelings. But we’ll see who will have the last laugh accepting her Emmy — MEEEEE.”
