It is always fun when TV shows feature moms that I can relate to. One of my favorite secret obsessions (or not so secret anymore) is TLC's "What Not To Wear". Stacy and Clinton and team do a great job of making over people, many moms I know want to nominate themselves to have a makeover.
If only to have a week of shopping in NYC sans kiddos.
I secretly fantasize about them helping me look create a wardrobe of "Tech Mom" fashions for computer and social media conferences. Maybe they need a special show just for that!
Mayim Bialik was a child star on Blossom in the early 90's and now is a mom of two and was featured on "What Not To Wear". I think they did a great job of making over Mayim on What Not To Wear and really made me think about my regular mom outift of sweats and make-up free skin. The next day I decided to attempt the 5 minute face – which was not so bad – and put on a summer outfit instead of my sweats. Not so bad. But I do like my mom sweats. Mayim was very honest on the show that she does not have time for herself and did not make the time. I, and many other moms, feel the same way!
Here is Mayim's bio from a press release I received:
Mayim attended UCLA where she received an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience, Hebrew and Jewish Studies. She went on to receive her doctorate from UCLA in Neuroscience, focusing on Prader-Willi syndrome.
Mayim lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two sons. She is very involved in the Jewish community, and lives an eco-friendly lifestyle."
(yes – she is a mom with a degree in Neuroscience!)
I was very excited to see on the same TNT press release that Mayim Bialik will make a guest appearance on the TNT – Saving Grace (another one of my favorite shows) this Tuesday, July 14, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT):
"During a case that puts Grace’s spirituality to the test, the squad investigates the murder of a Hasidic Jew whose body is found near a herd of dead cows. Meanwhile, Grace tries to connect with Neely, and Ham’s sister-in-law, Amanda, struggles to get over the death of her husband.
Character Description: Esther (Mayim Bialik) – A Hasidic Jewish woman and the daughter of the murder victim in the episode. She strayed from the Jewish community in her early 20's, but then returned to her religious roots after several years. She is married with 7 children (but you don't see them in the episode)."
I will be tuning in, perfect timing for after the kids go to sleep.
