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 woman was shocked when she surprised five bears going through her garbage in Orlando, Florida. Her shock turned to horror when one of the bears attacked her, getting her head in its mouth and dragging her toward the woods. But the bear suddenly released her and she got away. She has 40 staples and stitches in her head but is thankfully alive.
Wild animal attacks are rare; usually they are scared of humans and just want to get away from you. But if you surprise them, this is when they can go into defensive mode and attack. Here's how to survive six wild animal attacks.
Last year, the country was shocked and horrified when two bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Terrorism was the culprit. Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 20, remains in custody. His brother, Tamerlan, was killed in a shootout with authorities. Three people were killed and hundreds were injured. Many lost limbs. Since then, the victims and their families and the community and country at large have spent time trying to heal. Things will never be the same at the Boston Marathon again, but plenty of people are determined not to let the evil forces of terrorism win. Here are 12 stories of those determined to run again this year.
Tori Spelling has given her first post-cheating scandal interview and it's as heartbreaking as you would expect. Oddly, Tori is using the cheating scandal as the basis for a new show, True Tori, which starts April 22 on Lifetime. So naturally she's doing publicity for the show. Which means more talking about the cheating ... which I think is safe to say now officially happened. I mean, in some ways, you've got to hand it to Tori. Few celebs come right out and admit this kind of thing. Tori had the typically devastating things to say about her marriage that any cheated-on spouse would say.
Sometimes getting separated from your spouse only brings you closer together. That seems to be the case with Kris and Bruce Jenner, who are officially separated but still seen holding hands. The latest proof that the former (?) couple are as close as ever happened recently when Kris reportedly went to the hospital for an unknown medical condition. And Bruce was right there by her side.
Despite the fact that Scientology may have ruined all three of his marriages, Tom Cruise is still a devoted 'tologist. But maybe now he's finally realized he needs a partner who is as cray cray about the weird cult religion as he is. Enter a ginger beauty who is a low-key but apparently very dedicated 'tologist -- none other than That '70s Show alum Laura Prepon! Rumor has it that the two have been secretly dating for months.
