Loretta, played by Wendy Raquel Robinson in Here We Go Again, is not your typical cane-in-hand grandma. In fact, her style, energetic persona, and perfect comedic timing is why she is considered an on-screen Glam-ma! She’s not the only fabulous grandmother on our radar…here are 5 Glam-mas that we truly adore.

1. NeNe Leakes

We first heard the term “Glam-ma” from the “very rich” Real Housewives of Atlanta star, so it’s only right that we lead with Mrs. Leakes. When she’s not being a fabulous grandmother, she’s busy starring on Broadway, appearing in sitcoms, and cashing ‘Trump checks.’

2. Tina Knowles-Lawson

This fabulous Glam-ma is a businesswoman extraordinaire with her hand in everything from hair care to fashion. Glam-ma to two grandchildren, her biggest gifts to the world are mega-star, Beyoncé, and hippie style icon, Solange.

3. Patti Labelle

This soulful Glam-ma has no problem hitting those high notes and will cook you one of the best meals you will ever have in your life. We’re still dying to have one of those “Pattie’s Pies.”

4. Kris Jenner

Glam-ma to North, Saint West, and three other grandchildren, this fabulous Glam-ma/manager has the ability to take your career to amazing heights–just like she did with her entire family on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

5. Tina Turner

With a music career that expands over 50 years, this Glam-ma and “What’s Love Got To Do With It” powerhouse can still work a stage in a pair of heels like the rent is due– and make it look easy.
