10 TV Moms We Secretly Want to Be


Joy Turner, "My Name is Earl"

Joy Turner is bedazzling, calculating and usually offering a shot of her cleavage, but this on-screen train wreck has a few redeeming qualities, too. Not that we're advocating modeling our mothering skills after Joy Turner on "My Name is Earl," but despite her incessant gum chomping, spidery mascara and big hillbilly hair, Joy's white trash persona is a bit of an enigma. At the core, she's a softhearted mom who would do anything to protect her boys -- even if it's from herself once in awhile. Of course, if she ever gets her fake nails on some lottery money, all bets are off.
