What does being a Bad Mom mean to you? To me it reads more like Bad (ass) than poor parenting. I think that’s due in large part to the way the producers of the film Bad Moms have shifted the conversation about motherhood. Especially the way we judge moms who may or may not be “bad.”

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Susan Sarandon and Cheryl Hines recently at Sky Zone in LA to talk about the film A Bad Moms Christmas for a BONUS episode of Motherhood in Hollywood. We did a little jumping around just like in the film but I’m happy to report no moms were injured in the process. A Bad Moms Christmas is out on Blu-Ray and DVD on Feb. 6th so we revisited some of the themes from the film that I first spoke with them about last October for the press junket. I wonder if they’re tired of talking about this movie yet? They didn’t seem to be so I dove right in with questions about the film.

We also chatted about their take on finding friendships. I was curious as I am going through some of my own challenges with friendships right now. How do celebrities or people in the “spotlight” find friends who are genuine and not out to get something from them? They both talked about having friends in the industry and keeping those friends close.

My amazing Bad Moms friends!

They also shared with me how they guide their own children through relationship and parenting situations. It’s such a pleasure talking with these talented and funny women who have found a way to have longevity in their career despite and industry that can be so fickle.
