WESTPORT, Conn. -- A new ABC sitcom starring Katy Mixon of "Mike and Molly,'" fame has changed its name, apparently, because Westport is not "universal" enough, according to the Connecticut Post.

ABC said the show, previously titled “The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport,” would be re-named “American Housewife," saying they wanted the show to appeal to all housewives from New York to Los Angeles, said the Connecticut Post.

But according to insiders, the real issue wasn't the "fattest" part of the title, but instead, that the wealthy town of Westport wasn't universal enough, added the Connecticut Post.
