A lot of the time I need to call my mom and talk for a really long time, just to remind myself of all the things that are great and all the things that matter. If you do something that defines your character to be not what the public thought you were, that’s the biggest risk.”

My best friend always says, ‘You just want to create the family you never had.’ I might be doing that. In defense of my family, it happens. People fall out of love, and people go separate ways. People are human. I’ve accomplished a lot, but I guess the biggest success I want is that whenever I die people will say, ‘She was so successful as a mother, and as a wife.’ That’s kind of my big goal.”

There is no way Justin’s going to get an advance copy – unless Britney sends him one.”

AMERICA’S TOP 10 MOTHER’S DAY MEALS .. According to a new survey by the brioche brand St Pierre
Everyone thinks I'm a jerk because I'm not getting my mom a Mother's Day present. I feel Sunday is nothing more than a Hallmark holiday. I do nice things and buy my mom all sorts of stuff throughout the year. I don't feel I need to get her a gift on Sunday just because society tells me I need to. I think people, who go all out on Sunday, are just trying to make up for what they haven't done during the rest of the year. Am I a jerk or not? Do you agree with my reasoning?
