BUSTies, Mother's Day is upon us, and it's time to honor all of the mamas in our lives--both real and fictional. Here, for your reading pleasure, are five of our favorite TV moms. Enjoy!

In my humble opinion, Clair Huxtable is the perfect TV mom. Her formidable lawyer-ing skills were often put to work dealing with the crazy kids, and her career in no way kept her from being a caring and firm mother. She, like any other mom, ... Read More

Patricia Riggen's film is just in time for Mother's Day, and it certainly isn't lacking any of that drippy sentimentality you would expect from a family portrait. Ansiedad Gutierrez (Cierra Ramirez) has decided that the coming-of-age stories she is reading in her English class will provide her with a path to an adulthood in which she can successfully escape her childlike mother, Grace (Eva Mendes).
