    Not everyone's path to true love is smooth and drama-free. Actually, some would argue that all great love stories have their twists and turns, but occasionally two people find each other in a very unconventional way -- like when they're both married to other people. Whoops.

    That's what famously happened to LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. The now-married couple met in 2008 -- when she was married to dancer Dean Sheremet, and he was married to model Brandi Glanville. They began a much-publicized affair, and to complicate matters even further, Eddie and Brandi had two young sons together. Recently, LeAnn (who constantly dotes on her stepsons, much to Brandi's chagrin) and Eddie opened up to Mario Lopez about their decision to share the dirty details of their affair to 11-year-old Mason and 7-year-old Josh.

    Ask most firstborns how Mom and Dad treat the baby of the family, and you're sure to hear a ration of complaints. They're spoiled! Adored! Pampered. But is it true? Do you really treat your lastborn child differently?

    Is the youngest child in the family any different from their siblings? And is it because of birth order, or would they have been the same kid if they were born first? Turns out science has a lot to say on what makes your lastborn child tick:

    Although sex ed in schools continues to be a hot topic of debate, how parents deal with the subject at home is a different story. Some moms have an open dialogue with their kids on the subject, while others prefer to stay mum until asked, and meanwhile, there are moms supplying their teens with condoms in an effort to encourage safe sex.

    One illustrated example: A photo of a note a mom supposedly (well, we're not 100 percent sure of its authenticity) wrote for her son, accompanied by a condom that she's encouraging him to use "if things get serious" when his girlfriend comes over. The pic has gone viral, and unsurprisingly, everyone has an opinion on just how advisable this is. Check it out ...

    I'm not much of a sports fan, but man, I couldn't be a bigger supporter of Oklahoma City Thunder player Kevin Durant right now. On Tuesday, while accepting the NBA MVP award, Durant gave the most unbelievably touching speech about his mother, Wanda Pratt, praising her for everything she did while raising both him and his brother alone in a suburb outside of D.C.

    He calls her the real MVP. And if you take a look at Durant's tear-inducing speech, you'll see exactly why. Guaranteed: This is the best mom tribute you've seen in a while.

    Admit it: you would have killed to have parents like Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith when you were 13. I know I would have saved myself a lot of humiliation and the trouble of telling lies my parents never believed anyway just so I could go do something stupid that I shouldn't have been doing in the first place. Well, Willow Smith has no such concerns.

    The ridiculously hip -- as in waaaay too hip for someone barely out of her tweens -- daughter of the coolest parents ever was recently photographed hanging out on her bed with actor Moises Arias. Oh yeah, Moises is 20 and isn't wearing a shirt. Sounds a lot like what you were doing at 13, right?!

    Oh. Good. Grief. Did you hear what Modern Family actress Julie Bowen lets her sons do? Wait, scratch that, did you hear how the pearl clutchers are reacting to Julie Bowen's announcement that her three young sons watch her in the shower?

    Bowen showed up on Conan O'Brien's show recently, and the conversation turned to kids -- as it so often does when two parents are chatting. Bowen has three boys, including twins who turn 5 later this month. And, well, it turns out her little boys like to sneak into the bathroom and watch Mom shower.

    You have to feel compassion for any couple dealing with extremely difficult marital problems. Throw in a few children and, we all know, it becomes even more of a task to hold everything together.

    Anyone who has watched True Tori can tell you that Tori Spelling is trying really hard to make things work with Dean -- and kudos to her for even wanting to try after he cheated on her. At the same time though, they're also working to raise 4 young children and keep them sane, even though they're being hounded by paparazzi night and day and, let's be honest, doing and saying some very odd things that they must know are going to get their names in the gossip columns. It's starting to seem like some of the choices they're making may not be in their kids' best interest.

    The top 10 list of what makes deployments difficult on the spouse is obvious and can be summed up by just saying, “Doing everything, every day, all day.”

    A 15-year-old Somali boy became a stowaway last week when he decided to hop a fence at San Jose International Airport and hide out in the wheel well of a Hawaii-bound plane. Like many teens, the boy acted impulsively in an attempt to rebel against circumstances he was frustrated by ... But what's heartbreaking is that all he really wanted to do was see his mother.

    The boy, who immigrated to California four years ago with his father after fleeing their home country due to war conditions, had been "struggling adjusting to life in this country," according to his father, Abdulahi Yusuf. But those around the family note that being separated from his mother was also taking a toll. Talha Nooh from the Muslim Community Assocation, where the boy's family were members, told the AP, "This whole thing should be looked at in the context of a teen who is emotionally attached to his mom and grandparents."
