I'm a former Forbes journalist and blogger who has also waxed lyrical for other places, including Marie Claire, The Frisky, The New York Post, and Women on the Fence. For my book, Can't Think Straight, I was on The Today Show, The Joy Behar Show, The Gayle King Show, and others. (But not Hoarders. One can dream.) I like to tell it like it is, almost as much as I like cats. I know a lot about celebrities and nothing about my neighbors.Visit me at my website or blog.
A pregnant teen has been charged in the murder of her mother-- supposedly because the mom wanted her to get an abortion. Alyssa Barrett, 17, and her baby's father, Damarius McGriggs, have been charged with stabbing DeCarol Deloney-Cain to death. McGriggs told police they did it because the mother, DeCarol Deloney-Cain, wanted her daughter to have an abortion. But sounds like there's other nefarious things going on here too.
There is nothing like Kim Kardashian wishing you a happy birthday. She's the girl who shows up at the party bearing a fabulous gift -- for herself. That's pretty much what it feels like when Kim sends birthday greetings via Instagram. She somehow always manages to make the photo not at ALL about the person having the birthday -- but about her, or some body part of hers. This time, Kim went ALL out in wishing Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci a happy birthday ... by posting a pic of herself in her birthday suit.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, funny about a child being left in a locked, hot car. Except this time. Emergency medical technicians in Hoboken, New Jersey responded to a 911 call about a child being left in a car, and arrived on the scene to see a baby strapped in a carrier, looking distressed, with the parents nowhere in sight. So they did what they had to do. They smashed the SUV's windows open and grabbed the baby, ready to perform emergency services. Only, it was too late. The baby was completely lifeless. In fact, it never had any life to begin with. Because it was a doll named "Todd."
This week on LeAnn & Eddie, we learn why LeAnn's name comes first in the title. That's because LeAnn is a STAH and Eddie is, well, not. The pair travel to Nashville, Tennessee, where LeAnn was catapulted to country fame as a teenager. This time, LeAnn is in town for a host of interviews promoting her new album and to spend some time with her long estranged dad. And, oh yeah, there's plenty of opportunity for Eddie to try and do something on the show worth watching by failing miserably at playing cowboy.
