Most Influential TV Moms
Despite all of the trashy women on TV today, from “Basketball Wives” to wives that are desperate, you can still catch a positive female influence from time to time. Here are five women of TV who are worth idolizing.
5. Jill Taylor- “Home Improvement”
Home improvement was a 90’s ABC sitcom that represented a “fix it yourself” lifestyle that was booming in America. Jill represented the woman of the house who knew when to let the boys be boys and when to put her foot down. Anyone who could hold their own in a house full of Alfa males, led by Tim Allen, deserves to make this list.
4. Mama Pane- “Martin”
This one is easy. No TV mom can compete with “My Mommas’ Biscuits.”
3. Vivian Banks (the chocolate edition) – “Fresh Prince”
Sure Aunt Viv lived in Beverly Hills, but she took no nonsense from anyone. Why did I choose her as opposed to the second mom? Part 2 is only better when it comes to the “Home Alone” movies.
2. Marge Simpson- “Simpsons”
Despite all of the dumbass mischief that Homer gets his family into, Marge stands by her man. Only a true ride-or-die chick would put up with 500 episodes of stupidity from her husband and only respond, “Homieeeee!!”
1.Claire Huxtable- “The Cosby Show”
The perfect combination of beauty and brains, Claire Huxtable had to be number one on the list of most influential TV moms. Not only could she rock the sexy evening dress during cocktail hour, but the business suits she wore as a lawyer would make any judge rule in her favor. Add to that the sass she showed whenever Theo or Vanessa got out of line and you have yourself the Greatest TV Mom of all-time!
