Bonnie Hunt's childhood dream has come true with her talk show of the same name. She is better known for playing the sister in Jerry Maguire and the mother in Cheaper by the Dozen and other films. In this show, she showcases her talents of allowing celebrities be themselves. She can be quirky sometimes but she is one of the best beloved American actresses even in her forties who can hold her own against Renee Zellweger and Steve Martin. Bonnie is fiercely loyal to her friends like Holly who was on Life with Bonnie. Their friendship is real and authentic without the pretenses of others. Bonnie tries not to inflict her political or personal views but she is happy and proud of her hometown Chicago and her relationship with her mother who makes occasional appearances on her show and her fifteen nieces and nephews. Bonnie is not without her personal problems as she is separated from her long-time husband after 20 years of marriage but she manages to always smile and be cheerful.
