    Despite Joan's acerbic humor and sometimes usually biting one-liners, she had countless fans, and Melissa spoke out for the first time since her mom's red carpet funeral to thank them for their support.

    You want to lose weight and eat healthier. You're excited to make the changes you know you need to make. There is just one thing standing in your way. Actually, he may be standing in front of the fridge right now, grumbling about what he sees in there. It's your husband. Many of us have picky eater kids on our hands -- but some are lucky enough to have picky eater husbands too.

    A female professor from Boston, who was given a wedding photo found at Ground Zero after the September 11 attacks, lived the last 13 years unable to get the subjects of that photograph of her mind. Elizabeth Stringer Keefe was haunted by the picture, which shows a beaming young blonde bride, her handsome groom, and four smiling friends on what looks like a snowy mountainside. She wanted to know where the photo came from -- and more importantly, what had happened to its young subjects.

    Given the horrific circumstances surrounding the photo's loss, it isn't diffcult to imagine Keefe probably assumed the worst -- that the owner of the picture had perished in the attacks. But that didn't keep her from dedicating more than a decade to trying to locate the bride and groom.

    And she did. Along with every single other person in the photograph.

    Paul Walker would've turned 41 on Friday September 12, had his life not been cut short in a tragic car accident last November. Just because he's gone doesn't mean he's not mourned, and probably more by his surviving daughter Meadow than anyone.

    Meadow Walker took to Instagram on her dad's birthday to post a super sweet throwback picture of her and her dad when she was a little girl.

    There's a video about racism that's generating buzz ... and it is definitely worth watching. Six (cute, witty, articulate) kids from Ferguson, Missouri, "armed with only statistics" tell it like it is to be black in America. And it's not pretty.

    The kids are reportedly from the same block where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed or, as they describe, where a "white police shot an unarmed black teen in the face ... it was a national disgrace." They go on to mock statements white people allegedly say to pretend racism doesn't exist: "Some of my best friends are black"; "I don't see color"; and "You people are just playing the race card."

    You have to check it out.

    Perfection is overrated. And intensely boring. Think about it: though physically gorgeous, would Angelina Jolie have the career she has if she weren't intriguing on the inside as well as the outside? Nope -- she'd just be another pretty face who played someone's girlfriend in some movie and never acted again.

    We continue to be bombarded with images of flawless celebs who have had plastic surgery, never seem to age, and whose images are photoshopped practically beyond recognition. But a former fashion editor and her daughter are determined to prove to the world that beautiful women come in all shapes, sizes, skin tones, and hair textures with an amazing new effort called "The What's Underneath Project."

    In each "body positive" video -- one of which features Demi Moore and Bruce Willis' daughter Tallulah Willis giving a candid and chilling interview about suffering from body dysmorphia -- women remove their clothes and reveal their true selves.
