The end has come for Ryan Seacrest's reality show "Momma's Boys" when it wrapped up the first season with a finale on Tuesday, January 20. Two out of the three boys chose to go against their mothers' wish and one decided to obey his mother but regretted later.

Khalood, was pissed when her son Jojo turned his back to go with 22-year-old kindergarten teacher Mindy who was particularly without a final two showdown because Khalood thought that none of the girls were good enough for her son. Mindy had the gut to tell Jojo that she would not let herself date a boy who can't stand up for himself and that her parents raised her to be "respectful, classy, and well-rounded."

Jojo took her hand and said after his decision, "This is the first time that I ever stood up to my mom and just put my foot down and been successful with it." After the show, NY Daily News reported that Khalood was offered a counseling but she refused politely.

Another boy going against his mama's will is Michael. He selected 26-year-old medical student Amanda over his mother's choice Erica who admitted that she is Penthouse's Pet of the Year. Despite Erica's confession that she has posed for the adult magazine, mom Lorraine said, "You know I still feel the same exact way about you. I don't feel any different about you." But Michael felt otherwise, and went on with Amanda.

The only boy who took a nod for his mother's choice is Rob. Esther was particularly unhappy upon finding out that her son took interest in an African-American girl, Camilla, and suggested him to go with Lauren. After a final discussion, Rob said on the elimination, "Camilla, all the time we spent together has been so magical. You're so different than anyone I've ever spent time with. ...But, I'm asking Lauren to come away with me tonight." The fact was, Rob left for his three-day vacation without Lauren but alone.

No date for the new season for the show yet.

I loved this show, one of the best I've watched! I think it was brilliant that Jojo found the courage to stand up to his Mother and cut the cord! Great too that Michael chose Amanda, they had chemistry from the start and they are so right for each other, Doctor and Firefighter! Who would want a future wife and mother of his children to be someone who would show her all to every other guy? He was just going along with Mom's choice until he found out the truth. Anyway, she went to visit his mother in Florida after the year as 'Penthouse Pet of the Year' ended, so I'm sure she is available if he ever wanted her. It would be good to see an update since this was filmed in 2008!

Only now is Momma's Boys being shown in Australia! It's a stupid, lame show, but curiously addictive!

Great show but no after math! Everyone wants to know if anything worked out with any of the couples but we do not get updates! I think now that they all were just actors to create this show knowing the outcome and how to raise everyones blood pressure. I will not watch the show againn if it comes out with new actors. I am starting to think a lot of these types of shows are just a Jerry Springer want a be!

Camilla was worth fighting for! Wow! Sweet, phenominal looking... She'd be a great wife and mother... He just threw away the chance of a lifetime. There weren't any Jewish girls on the show anyway. Camilla is unforgetable.

I love the fact that the guys followed their hearts. Although I know a mother's opinion is very important = a mother will learn to love any girl that steal their son's heart. Fact.

I really hope they don't bring this rubbish back for a 2nd season. I can't believe this is what tv of today has come to.

I really enjoyed the show. I just wish we would have heard more about what happened to everyone. Did Rob call camilla when he got home? Did Michael hook up with Erica when she came to visit his mother? Who really cares about Jojo and his mom Khalood. Dysfunctional!!

So are Mindi and JoJo still together? I would have run the other way, who would want to be part of Mrs. B? And what about Rob? Did he and Camilla make up? I liked the show. It made me wonder what kind of mother in law I will be one day.
