Happy Mother’s Day! Whether you're celebrating with your beloved mom, grandmother or mother-in-law — or have them in your thoughts — the role mothers play in our lives is undeniable. The Carlos Watson Show has been proud to talk to some badass moms who are changing the game and shaping the lives around them. Celebrate these moms with us today!
Meet the Queen Maker herself, Ms. Tina Knowles-Lawson. You may know her best as the mother of Beyoncé and Solange, but there’s so much more to this icon than her children’s superstardom. She sits down with Carlos to discuss her greatest fear, her rebellious past and how she’s now fighting for social change.
Celebrities are not immune to the complications and injustices of pregnancy. In her episode, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore opens up about how she “nearly died” having her daughter, Brooklyn, and how that experience is informing her decision about having another child. Hear her full story.
Actress and activist Alyssa Milano joins Carlos and is full of wild stories from her humanitarian adventures abroad. But perhaps of most interest, the #MeToo pioneer shares how she handles issues of consent with her children, explaining how teaching young men about consent shouldn’t only be a sexual conversation.

CNN journalist and star of This Is Life, Our America and The View, Lisa Ling gives Carlos the inside scoop on her cutting-edge journalism — from prisons and biker gangs to teenage porn addicts. But she also opens up like never before about her own personal struggles with fertility, with some surprising advice for young, aspirational women who hope to have children.
Model and activist Christy Turlington Burns took action after her own pregnancy struggles by founding Every Mother Counts, an organization that works to make childbirth safer for mothers across the globe. “It's a daily grind to get people to think about . . . a system that is systematically racist . . . that is not pro-woman, that is not pro-family,” she says.
