I'm a high heel wearing writer, magician, sleuth, and twin mama with tattoos. My not-so-secret past includes doing time as the Editor of Playgirl magazine. I get personal on Mommy With Tattoos and mouthy at Daily Momtra. I'm obsessed with taking naps, 70s vintage, chocolate chip cookies, reality TV, and Mexican food (not too spicy, please).

    The Royal family have been in Australia, and they made a stop at Sydney's Taronga Zoo, making sure that Prince George met the bilby named after him. Baby Prince George, meet Bilby Prince George!

    The sweet cheeked 8-month-old was so excited to meet the adorable animal that he nearly wiggled out of mama Kate Middleton's arms as they approached the exhibit.

    When my kids' birthday time rolls around, I -- like so many other moms -- stress out about it. I want it to be great and fun and memorable. And that includes the cake, or kid's favorite cupcakes. I've decorated (or had someone professionally decorate) birthday sweets with tiaras, superheroes, chocolate kisses, and jelly beans, which I discovered that my daughter hates. Who hates jelly beans?!? My kid.

    I've discovered that you have to keep it simple because let's face it -- kids just want the sugary deliciousness. Katie Holmes is onto that fact and for Suri's 8th birthday, she did just that with these perfect cupcakes.

    We cannot deny Jared Leto's resemblance to Jesus. The long hair parted in the center. The facial hair. Those eyes. If there was another movie about JC, JL should play him. Holy wow, this man is beautiful. Is that okay to say?

    There have been Leto sightings here and there lately -- he was just at Coachella wearing a Hawaiian shirt (definitely not Jesus-like). But it's Jared's sighting that has me all agasp. Jesus. Jared Leto ran into Jesus on the street. And there's photographic proof.

    Jenelle Evans has been so busy lately that I'm tired just thinking about all that's going on in her life. She's seven months pregnant with baby Kaiser (Jace is going to have a little brother!) and she just finished her first semester of medical assisting where she got straight As. Her new classes are starting this week. And even though the baby in her belly's daddy is serving jail time (DUI charges and then driving with suspended license issue), she's keeping that love alive with the romantic letters Nathan Griffith is writing to her while he's in the slammer.

    Baby on the way. Acing it at school. In love. Aside from the jail hiccup, things are going really well for Jenelle. While she's waiting for her divorce to be final from Courtland Rogers, she's been busy planning her wedding to Nathan, who technically hasn't proposed yet. This all makes sense, I promise.

    On Thursday, a 43-year-old nanny was walking around with the 8-month-old baby boy she cares for in his stroller. They were on 8th Avenue in New York City, near 17th Street in the Chelsea area -- a very busy neighborhood, and also quite safe. It was around 4 p.m. And that's when a stranger approached and began acting as if the baby was hers. That woman has since been identified as 46-year-old Tara Anne McDonald who has 12 prior arrests due to attempted kidnapping of infants in this same manner.

    What adds to this terrifying event is that the nanny reportedly was yelling for help since McDonald was threatening and grabbing at the stroller, trying to push it down the street. At least 10 people who were passing by did nothing to help her. Until a UPS worker saw what was happening and ran to assist.
