HOLLYWOOD—Mother's Day is always celebrated the second Sunday in May. It is a day to honor our mothers, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is a time to reflect on why they are so special. They have unconditional love for their children, patience, resilience and love. They encourage, nurture and have compassion, and for doing the hardest job in the world, mothers deserve to be honored.
Here is a quick gift guide to show some extra-special appreciation: an inexpensive bracelet that is very trendy these days is by Alex and Ani; a beautiful skinny gold bangle with pave crystals is always beautiful. A beautiful Yves Saint Laurent's Love and Lacquers Reds set, is always fashionable. Perfume is always tasteful, the musky gardenia scent in a sculpted bottle is a work of art by Cartier, which recently launched La Panthere eau de parfum.

Her show "Katie," comes to an end in June. She is also the global anchor for Yahoo! but according to reports is looking for a broadcast gig.

Hilary Clinton, will take on another exciting role: grandmother. Chelsea Clinton and hubby Marc Mezvinsky are expecting their first child this fall. The former First Daughter, 34, announced her news while speaking at an event for the Clinton Foundation's No Ceiling: The Full Participation Project, which seeks to empower women globally.

Clinton affair in an article breaking a decade silence in the Vanity Fair magazine which will be on newsstands and available in an audio edition on May 13.
