Danielle Fishel

When the news broke that one of the greatest shows from the 90s, Boy Meets World, would be coming back to the small screen, it generated plenty of buzz. The show, however, will be a just a little different. It will follow Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence’s 13-year-old daughter Riley, which is why it will be titled Girl Meets World.

The announcement was quickly followed with news that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will be reprising their roles as Cory and Topanga. Which is excellent news for those of us who grew up with the show, and more importantly, the ones that always had a crush on Topanga. And, have you seen Danielle Fishel lately? Will maybe you should check out her the upcoming April issue of Maxim , where she graces the cover. She looks better than ever.

With this new Maxim photo-shoot, we’re certain that when Girl Meets World airs, Topanga will instantly become one of the hottest moms on TV. While television has a long history of hot moms, it seems that since the turn of the century, the networks have been really stepping it up. Don’t believe us? Then check out our list of the 15 hottest TV moms from the 2000s.

15. Nancy Botwin in Weeds

BAFTA Brits to Watch Event

Nancy Botwin, played by Mary Louise Parker, is the quintessential hot mom. She bakes, would do anything for her family and, oh yeah, happens to be a pot-dealer. Doesn’t get much better than that.

14. Jasmine Trussell in Parenthood


We really can’t follow the complicated family tree on Parenthood. We do, however, know that Joy Bryant’s Jasmine Trussell is hot enough to keep us watching.

13. Claire Dunphy in Modern Family


What’s not to love about Claire Dunphy, played by Julie Bowen? Sure, she may be a bit bossy and overbearing, but she looks amazing, and still knows how to have a good time. She’s pretty much the perfect hot soccer-mom.

12. Melissa Gold in Entourage

The 2013 Golden Globe HBO Party

Perrey Reeves has an incredible body, and her character on Entourage wasn’t afraid to show it off. And, she even put up with Ari Gold’s nonsense and antics throughout the series, even though she could have any other man she could want.

11. Lorelai Gilmore in Gilmore Girls

SAMHSA  Voice Awards 2012

Lorelai is basically the attractive mom next door. While she was always beautiful, Lauren Graham’s role in Bad Santa probably helped her land on this list.

10. Niki Sanders in Heroes

Los Angeles Art Show 2013 Opening Night

Ali Larter is such a hottie that even when her character, Niki Sanders, was killed off on Heroes they brought her back as her twin sister. There’s no other explanation for that plot line, but we weren’t complaining.

9. Jules Cobb in Cougar Town


Jules Cobb is the mom that every boy dreams of. She has an incredible body, is carefree and loves drinking wine. She, Courtney Cox, has more than likely had some work done over the years, but overall, she’s still held up very well.

8. Vivien Harmon in American Horror Story

Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton) showed the world that even the most bored and frustrated of housewives can have a naughty side, even if it results in the end of the world.

7. Gillian Darmody in Boardwalk Empire

The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Arrivals

It’s pretty obvious why Lucky Luciano was so taken by showgirl Gillian Darmody (Gretchen Mol); she’s absolutely stunning. Let’s just forget about all the circumstances of her pregnancy with Jimmy and their relationship. Those parts are sickening.

6. Victoria Grayson in Revenge


Madeleine Stowe’s portrayal of Victoria Grayson has received positive praises from critics. But, we just dig the fact that she could be our sugar mama, even though it would be a challenge to win over that cold heart of hers.

5. Jenny MacArthur (Katie Aselton) in The League

Does it get any better than a mom that not only is an avid Fantasy Football player, but can also talk enough trash to hold her own with the boys?

4. Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives


Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria) was a pretty terrible wife, and mother. But, her irresistible beauty is probably enough to overlook her manipulative and cheating ways.

3. Claire Littleton in Lost

Would we want to be stuck on an island with Claire Littleton, played by Emilie de Raven, even though she just gave birth? Absolutely. After all, she’s an adorable Australian chick. What’s not to like about her?

2. Betty Draper in Mad Men

at the 41st Annual Peace Over Violence Humanitarian Awards, Beverly Hills Hotel, Beverly Hills, CA 10-26-12

Don Draper was a foul for letting Betty (January Jones) slip away. First off, she used to be a model. And, secondly, she made the 1960s housewife something to admire. While it was Don’s loss, it was a gain for Henry Francis.

1. Gloria Pritchett in Modern Family

19th Annual SAG Awards - Arrivals

Would there seriously be any other choice for the top spot? Sofia Vergara’s character on Modern Family is so unbelievably hot that it’s made the actress a household name. And, we’re certain that she could easily claim not just the hottest MILF of the 2000s, but of all time.
