All About Moms

With Mother’s Day approaching this weekend, it’s only fitting that Hollywood shower some love and attention on all the fabulous moms out there in stardom. This week, Working Mothers magazine released its list of the 50 most powerful moms of 2014. The list recognizes moms who “inspire us to keep striving for bigger and better.” Among the list of hard-working mommies were Kerry Washington, Beyonce and Tina Fey. However, the magazine didn’t just choose from Hollywood moms. Women in literature, finance and business, politics, retail, science, and advertising, among many more categories, were chosen as well. While the list only included 50, it’s safe to say that all moms deserve a prize and huge thank you for the work they do year round!

Chicago Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler and wife Kristin Cavallari of “Laguna Beach” welcomed their second child this week. The baby boy, Jaxon Wyatt, weighed in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces. Cavallari announced in February that baby number two would be a boy. Jaxon joins his brother Camden, who is 20 months old.

Several of TV’s most popular (and most cringe-worthy) shows found out their fate for the upcoming year. Longtime runners such as “American Idol,” “The Amazing Race” and “Law and Order: SVU” have already gotten the go ahead for new seasons, while others like “The Carrie Diaries” didn’t pull in enough viewers to make the cut. Even in the midst of all the renewal news, some shows’ fates, like fan favorites “Modern Family” and “Scandal” have yet to be determined.

After 300 schoolgirls went missing in Nigeria weeks ago, Michelle Obama, along with several other celebrities have been jumping on board the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, trying to raise awareness about the incident. Michelle posted a photo of herself and a sign with the hashtag written on it. Soon, celebrities including Jessica Biel and Queen Latifah took to their Twitter and Instagram accounts to relay the message. The trend has been continuing and growing in popularity ever since. So far, the United States, China and France have sent experts to help with the search. You can help spread the message on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.

Hopefully, Hollywood’s celebration of hard-working, powerful and amazing women will continue past Mother’s Day and into the future.
