In the episode, Karen brings Mia to Wendy's Nude Interlude event. On the way to the event, Mia expresses how happy she is to be focusing on something that doesn't involve her kids or her work life.
"I needed an opportunity to step aside from kids and work, because that's literally all I do," Mia says in the car.
At the time of filming Season 6, Mia's sons were 12 and 5 years old, and her daughter was 3 years old.
