Alicia Silverstone by Jordan Strauss/ Alicia Silverstone by Jordan Strauss/

It turns out that Alicia Silverstone is the mother. Just not that one. Previously rumored to be swinging by CBS' How I Met Your Mother in a recurring role - and perhaps ultimately as the titular mom - the Clueless star has instead landed the lead in the ABC pilot Bad Mother's Handbook.

The single-camera comedy centers on a 32-year-old woman juggling care of her 16-year-old daughter ( Arrested Development's Alia Shawkat) and her 48-year-old mother. Everyone now re-read that last sentence and do the math - lotsa babies having babies there! - MWM
