I have strung words together for Kiwi Magazine, Babble.com, AOL, Parents Magazine and more. I live in upstate New York with my daughter, husband, dogs, and too many cats. I rock a cool 'do because I shave my head most years to fight children's cancer with the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
Though my daughter is officially an elementary schooler, I'm pleased to report I've yet to give in to the curse of the appliqued mom sweater. Small victories, people.
When MTV decided to put Amber Portwood on Teen Mom, I'm guessing they had no idea she was going to go from teenager just trying to do the right thing for her baby to drug addict headed to prison. The Amber we saw on TV was -- at many times -- a bad mom. But now that the Teen Mom is out of prison, things have changed.
Amber is a different woman, and in her first official post-prison interview with In Touch -- basically the go-to mag for Teen Mom exclusives -- she's even claiming that prison helped make her a better mother.
It may sound a little unorthodox, but is it really so far off-base?
Another gang shooting, another innocent victim. The police in Los Angeles have put out a reward of $50,000 for information that leads them to the arrest of four men suspected of killing a 7-year-old boy during a drive-by last week. But this wasn't just any old drive-by, not according to the mother of little Taalib Pecante.
The slain second grader's mother has come out to say that her son's killers knew what they were doing -- specifically killing a child.
Let's face it, Lea Michele has had one hell of a year. Not only did she lose boyfriend Cory Monteith suddenly in July, but then she had to play-act losing his on-screen alter ego, Finn Hudson, during an episode of Glee. No one would blame her if she'd gone into hiding and refused to ever come out again, but she hasn't. Ellen DeGeneres managed to coax Lea to come on The Ellen Show this week for her first official post-Cory interview.
The Glee star had a surprising explanation of where she's been, or rather whom she's been with, during her roughest hours.
Maci Bookout is back on TV y'all! But don't get your hopes up too high for a Teen Mom spin-off. The fiery redhead isn't headed back to MTV but CBS. More specifically, Maci is popping up on the daytime medical showThe Doctors on Thursday to share the details of a "mystery illness" that plagued her earlier this year.
'Memba when our girl was down and out? Turns out she was in a lot of pain. A LOT of pain. Maci dished that she would have preferred birthing eight more kids than go through this again.
