Mother’s Day is a wonderful chance for you to tell your mother how much she means to you. However, there are some cases where celebrity moms have built up a bad reputation in the public eye. Despite their notoriety, these women are still mothers and this is a day their kids can make them feel like a million bucks.
Here is a look at some of the most controversial celebrity moms heading into Mother’s Day 2012.
Gosselin made her name as a celebrity because of motherhood. She rose to monstrous heights thanks to “Jon & Kate Plus 8” as people around the world watched her kids grow up, Cara and Madelyn, age 11, and Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel, age 7. Since the show was cancelled, the kids can grow up in a healthier environment, sans cameras.
While the troupe have been absent since the cancellation of their show, it is interesting to know the sextuplets turned eight on May 10. Gosselin Tweeted on May 2, “My six of EIGHT will be EIGHT in EIGHT days… Omg!All the 8’s… That’s so cool! I’m so elated I have 8 healthy smart happy healthy kids!XO.”
While the world hangs on every word of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, it is their mother Kris Jenner that runs the empire that makes everything possible. With daughter Kim dating Kanye West, sources claim that Kris already sees dollar signs in the future for the Kardashian clan.
“She has already told Kim that if they make it down the aisle they are going to do it on camera again there’s just too much money to be made for Kris to allow this to be done privately,” a source told RadarOnline.
One mother-daughter pairing that has fueled controversy over the last few years is Courtney Love and her 19-year old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. The daughter of the former Nirvana front-man seems to really have her life together, running her late father’s business affairs and making a solid life for herself.
In April, the two were in the news once again when Love accused Foo Fighter’s singer Dave Grohl of hitting on her daughter. In a way of making up for it, Love took to Twitter to say, “Bean, sorry I believed the gossip.. Mommy loves you.” This is one Mother’s Day the two might not be up to celebrating.
Dina Lohan is a woman whose entire celebrity hangs on the life of her daughter. It all started when Lindsay Lohan, now 25, became a childhood star. In 2008, Dina even led a second daughter, Ali, 15 at the time, into the spotlight with the reality show, “Living Lohan.”
Now that Lindsay is getting her life under control, Dina seems very defensive of her daughter’s career. Rosie O’Donnell had some unflattering things to say about Lindsay not amounting to anything since the age of 16 and Dina spoke up for her daughter.
“I’m very proud of my daughter and all of her many accomplishments and I just wanted to know if Rosie O’Donnell played the ‘Parent Trap’ [for] her children,” Dina said. “She’s worked with Meryl Streep in ‘Prairie Home Companion,’ she worked with Jane Fonda after that and other films, she worked in ‘Bobby,’ with an eclectic group of actors, I mean I just want to get the facts straight.”
