If you're a child of the 90s, you probably remember Lindsay Price after she joined the cast of 90210 in 1998, or prior to that when she made a name for herself in both "All My Children" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." Most recently she played Camille in 2 seasons of "Breaking Up Together." In 2008 she starred in the NBC drama, "Lipstick Jungle." Inspired by her mom's harrowing adoption story in South Korea, Lindsay is an adoption advocate and works with AdoptTogether to spread awareness about the importance of adoption and how many children in the world need loving homes.


Lindsay opens up to Hilaria and Daphne about how life for her changed when she went from a mom of one to a mom of 2, her approach to balancing the chaos of life between her career and motherhood, and how she handles the aggression/rough housing her little boys display towards each other. However, things get amazing when she opens up about her mom's incredible story of survival and her journey out of South Korea, and her subsequent adoption which so deeply connects Lindsay's own life today.

This is a no holds barred conversation with writer/actor/producer Jill Kargman. She is the creator and star of the scripted comedy Odd Mom Out, which aired 3 seasons on Bravo. On Odd Mom Out, Jill plays a satirical version of herself navigating the hilarity of raising children on the Upper East Side in NYC. She is a New York Times best-selling author of multiple books and mom to Sadie, Ivy, and Fletch. Jill is also a performer with the Upright Citizens Brigade improvisational and sketch comedy group and recently made an appearance in her first Hollywood studio movie, A Bad Moms Christmas.

In this hilarious and frank conversation (which you should probably not listen with your kids in the room) Hilaria, Daphne and Jill discuss some of the ridiculous situations Jill finds herself in with other NY moms, the super close, honest and open relationship she has with her kids, and how different motherhood is now at 45 vs new motherhood in her twenties.


Favorite Things:

Whether it's child birth or breast feeding, it's no secret being a mom wreaks havoc on our bodies, and many moms look to plastic surgery for self care. Whether it's breast rehabilitation or a simple facial filler, if you've ever thought about seeking help from a plastic surgeon, this is the episode for you! Dr. Lara Devgan is a board-certified, plastic & reconstructive surgeon and one of the most sought after doctors in NY. She has degrees from Yale, Johns Hopkins Medical School and has achieved board scores in the top 3% of all plastic surgeons nationwide. Her special interests are cosmetic surgery of the face and body, and reconstructive surgery for breast cancer, skin cancer, and facial injuries.  She also has her own skin care line called Scientific Beauty. Not only that but she's a mom of 6!

Hilaria and Daphne geeked out with Dr. Devgan and covered all the procedures that moms request in her practice. They talked boob jobs, nose jobs, fillers, and even non-surgical techniques, plus the proper, responsible way to approach these procedures, and the importance of finding the right plastic surgeon for your needs. Also, whether or not to use injectables when you are pregnant or breast feeding. As Dr. Devgan says "aging gracefully is the goal, but every once in a while your biology sets you up that makes you feel older than you are."

This was the impetus behind her cookbook series and blog Against All Grain, which is the platform she uses to share her life and paleo inspired recipes, to help others suffering from all types of diseases or allergies.

HilariaDaphne and Danielle discuss her journey with this auto immune disease and how food changed her entire life. Plus, how she approaches eating, her different paleo themed recipes and how she inspires her own kids to be adventurous with food and eat things like liver meatballs. Danielle also bravely shared her experience of the loss of her daughter Aisla and the process of grief and healing she went through. Be sure to check out her new YouTube series Feeding Friendships and her latest book Danielle Walker's Eat What You Love: Everyday Comfort Food You Crave; Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes.

Together Hilaria, Daphne and Dr. Sacks discuss the realities of transitioning into motherhood and how it's completely normal (and expected) for every mom to be unprepared for the emotional and physical changes that take place as they become first time mommys. They delve into the natural insecurities, fears and challenges this new stage of life brings for every mother as they step into this new roll, and how there is a whole period of growth and learning that must happen, much like adolescence for young teens.

Kate Northrup is an entrepreneur, bestselling author, and mother of two. She hosts the Kate & Mike Show podcast with her husband and founded the Origin™ Collective, a monthly membership site where women all over the world gather to achieve more while doing less. With all of that she somehow found the time to write numerous books and her new one Do Less: A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy Moms is out now. She tells us how to accomplish more by doing less.

Hilaria, Daphne and Kate got pretty deep into the data about how women's bodies work during their menstrual cycle. How there are certain times during that cycle that foster creativity, planning and efficiency, and certain times are meant for rest and recuperation. Plus, that it's ok not to constantly be doing and it's unnatural to do it all.
