Mother's Day 2013: The Ten Best Pop Culture Moms of the Year
4. 30 Rock Liz Lemon
Was Liz Lemon a better character as a childless, single, unfulfilled slave to NBC? Of course she was. Liz's quest for kids effectively shut down 30 Rock's storyline; a Liz Lemon who shows up on our TV screens every week is better than the imaginary Liz in our heads mothering tiny versions of of Tracy Jordan and Jenna Maroney. Hell, if the stuff we made up in our heads was as entertaining as real-life Tina Fey, we'd just quit our jobs, stock up on Depends, and lay around laughing until we get evicted.
Still, Liz Lemon in any form > almost anyone else.

New mom Beyonce has given her daughter the greatest gift on earth. No, not that diamond-encrusted pacifier, or House of Dereon's entire line of onesies. It's a front-row seat to the greatest show on earth: Beyonce herself.
Oh yeah -- also, Blue Ivy will never have to work a day in her life. Thanks, mom!
