Monica: Being a Mother Has Helped Me Appreciate My Own Mom More

05/22/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

Growing up in the spotlight, Monica Brown was exposed to a lot at an early age, and it was her mother, Marilyn Best, who kept her grounded.

“I was able to avoid a lot of things that happen, especially to children who become celebrities, because I felt comfortable in my own skin because of my mom,” the R&B singer, 34, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“She instilled certain morals and values, and she said, ‘Regardless of where you go, take you with you wherever you go. Whatever you’re around, whatever you see, never allow it to play a part in who you become.’ ”

Now that he has a son of his own, Wiz Khalifa has a whole new appreciation for his mom Peachie Wimbush.

“When stuff happens, I’m like, ‘Oh man, this was definitely me,’ ” he tells PEOPLE of raising his 2-year-old Sebastian Taylor, his son with Amber Rose. “This is what my mom was going through.”

The “See You Again” rapper, who’s hitting the road with Fall Out Boy this summer on their Boys of Zummer tour, is passing on “pretty much everything” he learned from Wimbush, a retired surgical nurse, to his little one.

“All the simple stuff, you know, like using his manners and getting potty-trained,” says Khalifa, 27. “He’s a good boy, though. He uses big words and explains everything!”

Georgina Bloomberg: Co-Parenting with the Wrong Person Is Harder Than Being a Single Mom

05/21/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

The fairytale of a happily ever after is just that for Georgina Bloomberg.

The mom of 16-month-old son Jasper admits finding a forever love is not something that happens every day.

“Marriage is not super important to me — most end in divorce. I love the idea of being with someone forever, but I don’t think it happens very often,” the internationally renowned equestrian tells Cricket’s Circle.

“Marriage was coined at a time when people died when they were 30. That stability would be nice, and I am definitely open-minded about it, but I don’t need it in that way some women do.”

Jennifer Garner: I Try to Stay on Top of My Kids Doing Chores

05/20/2015 at 07:45 PM ET

When it comes to keeping an organized home, Jennifer Garner knows she just has to let some things go.

Although the actress has assigned chores to her three children with husband Ben Affleck, she admits that life can get in the way of Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, following through on their tasks.

“We have family chores and personal chores,” Garner, who admits she’s the “enforcer” in her home, tells PEOPLE.

“But sometimes I’m more on top of it than others. At the end of the school year, if they clear their plate and pick up after themselves and their rooms are clean and there aren’t wet towels on the floor, that’s good enough! Just today we were talking about good habits. You can’t do it all.”

Ali Larter: Juggling Two Kids Is a ‘Learning Curve’

05/20/2015 at 01:25 PM ET

As a new mom of two, Ali Larter could certainly use some of those incredible superpowers she once possessed.

Since welcoming her daughter Vivienne Margaret in January, the actress has had to divide her attention between her new baby girl and her 4-year-old son Theodore Hayes.

“I think for all moms it’s a learning curve figuring out how to do it and making sure there’s enough time for the older one,” Larter, 39, told PEOPLE at the 2015 Communities in Schools of Los Angeles Annual Gala on Monday.

“For me sometimes I just want to close the door and be with the little baby. It’s figuring out that balance and somehow trying to find some time for your husband and for work — and for yourself at the bottom of the totem pole.”

She adds, “We’re figuring it out, but my children are healthy and they’re happy and I just am feeling always super blessed and lucky for that.”
