    Recently, Robert Pattinson confessed to Jimmy Kimmel that he's homeless, but apparently he may not be as homeless as he's letting on. In fact, he maybe he's homeless on purpose. Why? Because it gives him one helluva reason to call up Kristen Stewart and be all, "KStew, baby, I got nowhere to staaaaaaayyyyy ..." And Kristen is all, "RPattz, sweetie pie, come heeeeeerrrre ..." Seriously, apparently this is going on. Rob and Kristen are living together! Sorta.

    Who doesn't love Neil Patrick Harris? I mean, the guy is just universally likeable. I'm pretty sure not liking NPH is akin to not liking puppies and butterflies and ice cream. It's just not natural.

    But there's a time and place to show your appreciation to the star for the act of existing, and during his live Broadway show is not one of those times.

    A few weeks back Glee fans were excited to hear that most of the original McKinley High gang is reuniting for the Cory Monteith tribute episode. Both the cast and crew of the hit FOX show have been candidly speaking about how difficult it's been filming the ep, despite how "beautiful" the script is. And while song lists for the episode have yet to be released, it seems that they've found an amazing way to honor their friend and talented costar: by performing some of his best songs. According to Wetpaint, the Glee cast will cover a few of Cory's most memorable songs in the upcoming tribute episode.

    Do we know which ones yet? No, no we don't. However, we sure do have a ton of favorites that could use a revival. Click for 5 of Cory Monteith's best performances that we hope to see in the tribute episode, here:

    If you were to tweet at E.L. James today asking about Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting news, you'd probably still receive a snarky response about how they're still far off from making any sort of "final decision." And I'm sure that is probably still true. However, the latest buzz from a believable source leads us to believe that they're VERY close. So close in fact that we may have our Christian and Ana soon after Labor Day!

    According to entertainment biz site, casting is expected to wrap up within the next month, because filming needs to begin this fall. That's BIG -- huge! That means we're so close! And while they note that numerous people for both lead roles are under consideration, two names are floating around as very likely contenders: Dakota Johnson as Ana and Charlie Hunnam as Christian.

    Not to freak you out if your kid is starting kindergarten this year, but you may want to look back at their toddler TV habits for a clue as to how they're going to do. A new study shows that for every hourly increase in daily television toddlers watch beyond recommendations, they do worse in kindergarten and get picked on more by their peers.

    The study, which comes from the University of Montreal, found that the increased screen time at 29 months is linked to poorer vocabulary and math skills, poor motor skills, less classroom engagement, and "victimization by classmates." Study author Linda Pagni said it's the first study of its kind, and told Science Daily it "suggests the need for better parental awareness and compliance with existing viewing recommendations put forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics."

    Over the past few weeks, there has been an ongoing debate on Slate and all over the Internet about the age women should marry. Susan Patton wrote a letter to Princeton University girls saying they should lock down the good boys now. Two writers at Slate debated this same issue, with Julia Shaw saying all women SHOULD marry young and another writer saying the opposite. It's no wonder women are confused.

    But the reality is, whether you marry at 19 or 38, there is only one recipe for happiness and contentment and it has nothing to do with age. It's not what age you marry. It's who you marry. Period. End of story.

    Who you marry is the person that keeps you warm at night, comforts you through all your sadness, and holds your hand as you birth children and grow old together. Marriage is a beautiful thing that shouldn't be rushed into and shouldn't be forced because you reach "a certain age." Here are 7 reasons age doesn't matter in marriage:

    By nature I'm a nostalgia-fueled hoarder. I want to hold on to everything my kids ever wore, played with or scribbled on. If even the slightest crayon smudge of a drawing says "To: Mama" at the top, it's impossible for me to discard it.

    But if you live in a New York City apartment, constant editing -- or so I am told -- is the only way to keep the piles at bay. I'm always looking for solutions that don't simply involve coming to peace with a dumpster, though. Here are some of the best methods I've learned from friends, the ones who can always see the tops of their coffee tables:

    There's no question that our kids are growing up under staggering amounts of pressure -- probably more pressure than any generation prior. From sports to academics to social media, virtually every single pursuit is considered high stakes. The competition is fierce even when the activity is supposed to be "non-competitive."

    Personally, I don't think these levels of stress are healthy for anyone -- not adults, not children, not anyone -- but as  mom, I'm most concerned with what being in a constant state of fight-or-flight is doing to my kids. Because while some kids thrive under pressure, others fall apart. Thankfully, science is finally looking at the genetic reasons behind that difference -- the difference between "Warriors" and "Worriers." Do you know which category your kid falls into?
