A former staff writer at People and Us Weekly, I have covered everything from hero pets to hurricanes to the secrets of celebrity slim-downs (which is basically avoiding carbs and anything else that you might actually enjoy eating). My work has also appeared in Essence and Self Magazine. Now an editor at The Stir, I spend my downtime hanging out with my hubby, toddler, and Shih Tzu in New York City. My other favorite pastime -- reality TV. I swear I've learned everything I need to know to survive this life from Snooki, Kim K, and NeNe Leakes.

Politicians have made some surprising admissions over the years, but perhaps none will startle Americans as much as the recent revelation about President Bill Clinton. Today, reports surfaced that just 10 hours before the first plane hit the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, he told a group of Australian businessmen that he had a chance to kill terrorist Osama bin Laden but declined to take it. Of course the immediate question that comes to mind is "Why?" For some, the explanation will be unsettling.
The summer hasn't been kind to Beyonce and Jay Z. Sure, they launched their sold out On the Run tour, but their image has certainly taken a beating.

Well, it seems enough is enough and the Queen Bey has finally responded.
Major casting news for Dancing With the Stars. The show's resident hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy announced that he's quitting the show for good. Devastating, right? It's especially heartbreaking for those of us who like bare pecs with our Cha-Cha. "I'm done dancing," he said on the The View. "I feel like it's time." Here's why he is calling it quits.
Familiar with the notion of the protective Mama Bear? You know, the mom who will viciously protect her young? Well, she ain't got nothing on Papa Bear. Case in point: a dad knocked out a man for leering at his daughter in a Pennsylvania Wawa convenience store. Now police are on the hunt for him.
