Great moms have always been, and will always be, a part of television. Tune in today and moms on the small screen are no longer June Cleaver or Mrs. Brady. You won’t see idealized visions of a perfect homemaker in pearls and heels. Modern TV moms represent women facing real challenges, flaws and all.
Here are 10 #RealMoms changing the motherhood game (that you can watch on Cox Contour!)
Olivia Benson has been a tough but caring cop on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” for 19 seasons. Now a Lieutenant, Liv not only manages the squad that tackles ripped-from-the-headlines cases but she cares for her foster son Noah. She’s a tough mama, laying down the law at home. “Well, kiddo, looks like you’re stuck with me,” she tells him.
There’s no covert operation or government takedown that Carrie Mathieson can’t solve on “Homeland.” Her insane work life is only matched by her complex and entangled love life. She hooked up with former terrorist suspect Nick Brody and had daughter Frannie. Carrie’s work often takes her to the far corners of the world—- and has put Frannie in danger as well — and this season, she finally decides to share custody with her sister to give her daughter a more stable life.
It isn’t easy to stand out in the colorful cast of “Modern Family,” but Gloria Delgado-Pritchett has always been a scene-stealer with her outrageous outfits and sassy one-liners. Brimming with Colombian pride, she’s the over-the-top mom who’s always the life the party. Manny and Joe have an upbeat and fiercely protective mama on their side.
