Kelly Rowland on being the ultimate working mom : The Limits with Jay Williams This week, we're in instant replay mode. Jay is revisiting his conversation with the one and only Kelly Rowland. In your mind, she might be the teenager of Destiny's Child fame, or the solo artist with dance floor anthems like "Commander."

But these days, Kelly's much more than a pop star. She's an entrepreneur, philanthropist, writer, and mother of two beautiful children. She recently published a children's book called Always with You, Always with Me, her ode to working moms. She's also due to star in a new Halloween movie this fall called The Curse Of Bridge Hollow.

In the episode, Jay and Kelly explore motherhood: how Kelly juggles being a good mom with her career, how she strives to be transparent with her children about fame and celebrity, and how she cared for her own late mother in her final days.
