AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE - “Krampus Katie” - Katie’s holiday spirit, never great to begin with, is soured even further when Viv (Leslie Bibb) corners her into helping out with the school Christmas pageant. Greg, determined to teach Taylor and Oliver the true meaning of Christmas, takes them to a local nursing home to cheer up the residents, but things don’t quite turn out the way he planned. Hal Linden (“Barney Miller”) guest stars as Mr. Montez, on "American Housewife," airing TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Not everyone loves the holiday season, and that includes Katie Otto (Katy Mixon) of ABC's American Housewife. Since moving to snooty Westport, Connecticut, Katie has had enough on her plate running her three-children household with husband Greg (Diedrich Bader). On top of that add the fact that she's a full-figured mom living amidst the other Westport moms who spend their days drinking kale smoothies and having workout sessions with their personal trainers.

So, in this week’s episode, when local rival Viv (Leslie Bibb) coerces Katie into volunteering at the school Christmas pageant, Katie finds even the little holiday spirit she has may be extinguished by Viv's domineering ways. Check out a clip from the episode, where Katie and daughter Anna-Kat (Julia Butters) find out just how seriously Viv takes the gift wrapping station. (Hang in there, Katie!)
