    I know many, many women who choose to see female gynecologists exclusively. Heck, I used to be one! Until just a few months ago, I never thought I'd voluntarily see a man doctor for my girly bits, but then one came highly recommended, and I gotta say -- it wasn't really any more unpleasant than the female docs I'd previously been to. His bedside manner was great, and I think I'll keep him as my regular.

    I may have made a different decision if I'd heard about this story before I booked my appointment. A gynecologist in Arkansas is being charged with video voyeurism for "allegedly [using] his cell phone to take nude photos of patients during office exams."

    Aghhh! Is that every woman's worst nightmare at the gyno's or what?

    Children get into the wildest spots, don't they? They find ways to climb, descend, and scale places and things we could never dream of conquering. But just wait until you hear this story!

    A 24-year-old woman in Lincoln, Nebraska reported her 3-year-old son as missing after she notice that he must have slipped out of the home when she went to the bathroom.

    At the same time, customers at Madsen's Bowling and Billiards restaurant also called the police when they noticed a little boy was stuck the arcade toy claw machine. He was hanging out and playing with the toys. Just having a grand ol' time!

    Alleged cult leader Victor Barnard is on the run from law enforcement, after being charged with 59 counts of sexual misconduct with two of his minor followers. A nationwide warrant was issued on April 11, when he was believed to be in the Spokane, Washington area, where his religious group relocated from Minnesota in 2008.

    Airports and borders are being checked for the fugitive, but investigators think it's more likely that his "followers may be shuffling him from home to home."

    It's believed that he sexually molested many other underage girls, who lived on his compound and were known as "maidens."

    When you see "Jenny McCarthy," the first thing that probably comes to mind is something like "vaccines" or "autism" -- but that obviously doesn't mean we can't be happy for her, as she just announced her engagement to Donnie Wahlberg on The View on Wednesday.

    "I just got engaged!" she exclaimed on the show. She had her hand hidden behind the desk (how clever) and then jumped around hugging everyone and shrieking, as brides-to-be should. "It's a yellow sapphire," she went on to explain. Then she teared up when she described how her son Evan helped plan the whole thing. Donnie also showed up on the set of The View on Wednesday to give his new fiance a kiss.

    Clearly this is fantastic news for her, but wow -- can you imagine having Mark Wahlberg as your brother-in-law? She's probably in for a ton of hilarious, raunchy, laughing-so-hard-you-pee-a-little family dinners. So jealous!

    A 14-year-old girl connected with a 28-year-old stranger named Gregory Lionel Foster on Facebook. A fear so many parents have. It's unclear if this was planned, but sometime after, Foster saw the girl at a gas station where he bought her snacks and a drink. He offered the girl a ride home. He kidnapped her. Less than seven hours later, the girl was saved by Orlando police, but not before she was forced to have sex with Foster who then attempted to make her a prostitute. Foster has been charged with human trafficking and kidnapping.

    In total there were 44 people arrested during a three-day sting. This unthinkable crime happens all too often. What happens is those kidnapped fall into what the police call dysfunctional relationships because they are vulnerable and easily manipulated. They tell the young girls they are beautiful and give them gifts, but use them to make money when they sell them for sex. Police say there is a demand for the sex trafficking of minors.

    Prepare to get goosebumps all over. In a scenario plucked straight out of a horror film, one Texas family tucked their 2-year-old boy in his crib for the night and retreated to their own bedroom on the first floor, confident that he would be safe and secure until breakfast time. Imagine their horror when they woke up the next day, checked the video footage from a surveillance camera they had set up in their son's nursery, and discovered that an intruder had broken into their home and had spent a full five minutes creepily entering and exiting the toddler's room and hovering over his crib to stare at him. And mom and dad slept through the whole thing!

    Four people -- a woman and three men -- are dead and almost 300 others are still missing after a ferry sank while traveling from South Korea to a nearby resort island. The ship was carrying 459 people on board and most of them were high school students on an organized field trip. As of this morning, 164 passengers -- many of whom jumped into the freezing cold Yellow Sea so they wouldn't be dragged down by the sinking ship -- have been rescued, which gives us some hope that more people will be saved.

    It's official! After a very short 84-day engagement, Jill Duggar will be a June bride when she and her fiance Derick Dillard tie the knot on June 21 of this year. The couple made us all squee a little when they announced their engagement last week, even if most of us were shaking our heads at their strange mating rituals.

    Well, strange by today's standards, at least. The two have decided to not only wait to do the deed until they're married, but they're saving their first kiss for the altar too! Does that quick engagement make sense now? Wink, wink.

    If you want to spot every celebrity currently walking the earth, all you have to do is fly to California, throw on the tiniest denim cut-offs you can find (extra points if they're fringed), and attend Coachella -- the hottest music festival in the history of music festivals. The 3-day event is heaven for famous people, who use it as an opportunity to mingle among the common people -- yeah, right -- and, more importantly, show off insane outfits and accessories that would get them laughed at by Joan Rivers if they tried to wear them anywhere outside of the Colorado Desert.

    Celebs may think time and good taste stand still while they're dancing their butts off at Coachella (cough, cough Leonardo DiCaprio), but we know better. And we're here to harshly judge the 10 outrageous looks these celebrities attempted to pull off at this year's festival.

    A tragic disaster is something none of us ever wants to pay witness to. But sometimes it's absolutely necessary to scare us into making changes that can preempt another horrible incident from occurring. That's exactly what Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Arnold Piedrahita believes -- and the reason why he recently shared surveillance footage of a toddler drowning at a Georgia mall.

    The video was taken last August when 2-year-old Alayna Ishmael wandered away from whoever was tasked with watching her, climbed into a water fountain at the mall, and nearly drowned. Thankfully, she was discovered, rescued, and survived

    Still, seeing the upsetting incident unfold is gut-wrenching, really almost unbearable to watch, but considering that drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death among children 1 to 4 years old, it also serves as a wake-up call. Watch below ...
