Now here's an idea I think is really great. Jennifer Garner, mommy to one-year-old Violet, wants to produce a View-like talk show that's just for moms. She and former So You Think You Can Dance host Lauren Sanchez-Whitesell are incorporating that whole "by moms, for moms" gimmick. But how did these two seemingly random ladies get together on this? I'm will to bet it has something to do with the fact that Lauren's husband represents Ben Affleck.
At a luncheon for iVillage Cares, Lauren told People.com, "We're pitching it next week to a network. I call Jen the Barbara Walters of the show. She will come on periodically. We haven't quite settled exactly [how often], but she's the executive producer."
As for what you can expect if the show gets picked up, Lauren (whose son will be one in June) says, "We'll talk about how to get your kids to sleep, or how do you choose the right school, or how to keep your marriage together after having kids... Jen might talk about how you keep a marriage together when you're in the spotlight with a child. She's photographed picking up trash in her front yard, she's photographed doing everything."
Do you think the show will get picked up? Would you tune in to watch Jennifer Garner talk about being a mom?
