Clair Huxtable (Phylicia Rashad)
'The Cosby Show'

"Clair Huxtable has always been one of my favorites. Loved her laugh and she always seemed so pulled together and laid back -- but when the mother lioness in her came out, she could roar with the best of 'em!" -- cmbren

"I love Clair Huxtable. She reminds me of my mother so much that I'm giving my girl twin the middle name of Claire in honor of my mom. My mom hates her own name, but she loves the name Claire." -- hoodsclass

"Clair Huxtable from The Cosby Show. She had a husband she loved, a career and kids that were just normal kids. They showed the kids love and respect and got the same in return." -- cl-bendcoles

"Clair Huxtable. LOVE her! She had it all together all the time." -- mamabeat

"The first one that popped into my head was Clair Huxtable. I always liked her parenting style, although I definitely can say I'm not as organized as she is." -- tyraaz
