I've been senior lifestyle editor at The Stir for more than two years after a short career freelance writing. I did stints at People, PopEater, AOL Health, The Huffington Post, and MyDaily. Before that, I was at FoxNews.com (don't gasp), where I covered fun stuff like the Oscars and style trends, plus heavier fare like Katrina and Casey Anthony. Not long ago, I was in the odd position of getting married at City Hall, planning what my mom called a "proper wedding," and having a baby all in the same year. I have a thing for watermelon, mystery novels, France, and trips to the Met.
San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore said DiMaggio, 40, is dead after at least 150 police and FBI agents swarmed a dense forest about 70 miles northeast of Boise and a shootout ensued.
The firefight capped a weeklong hunt for DiMaggio, who was on the run with Anderson after apparently killing her mother Christina Anderson, 44, and 8-year-old brother Ethan Anderson last Sunday at his house. DiMaggio is believed to have burned down his own home in Southern California with the victims' bodies still inside.
A Catholic teacher from Michigan was arrested and held on $25,000 bail for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old student after his mom found pictures of the woman in her garter belt on his phone.

The teen's mother discovered the affair between her son and the tutor after seeing a sexting exchange on his phone that included lewd messages and photos of Simon in her garter belt. How horrifying for that poor mom! Can you even imagine? It's just plain sick.
Lea Michele's life since boyfriend and Glee costar Cory Monteith died of a drug overdose has been fraught with unimaginable grief and heartache, says an insider. But that won't stop her from attending tomorrow's Teen Choice Awards.

Michele, 26, still plans to make her first public appearance at the Teen Choice Awards this Sunday night. The popular FOX comedy Glee has five nominations, and the whole cast has confirmed they'll be there for a special tribute to Monteith. Talk about a tear jerker.
"Chris suffered a nonepileptic seizure (NES)," the statement read. "His doctor tended to him this afternoon and attributes the NES to intense fatigue and extreme emotional stress, both due to the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity."
