There's no one quite like Beverly Goldberg (Wendi McLendon-Covey). While The Goldbergs' matriarch may seem like a hovering, overbearing parent to Barry (Troy Gentile), Erica (Hayley Orrantia), and Adam (Sean Giambrone), Bev truly has a heart of gold and only wants what's best for her beloved schmoopies. (Can you blame her?) Despite her incessant smothering, Bev is just a committed mother who will do anything for her children. With a mom like Beverly, every day should be Mother's Day!
