momanger
 n.— «“This is a tough business. It is dog-eat-dog and very competitive, but when you surround yourself with people who love you and support you, then you can’t lose,” Tina Douglas, who manages her Grammy-winning daughter under the inventive title of “momanger,” told FOXNews.com. Why “momanger”? we asked. “I spell it the same way I pronounce it. It’s just mom and anger. If you mess with my kid you make me angry,” Douglas said.» —“Parents for Hire: Celebs Employ ‘Momagers’” by Samantha Jonas FOXNews.com Mar. 10, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
