Review of My Violet VoxBox from Influnester

I really enjoyed getting this box from Infleunster, Influenster gave me this for testing products and reviewing my opinion of the products!

The product we tried first was the Soy Joy bar, my husband enjoyed it for breakfast and ate it at work. Then I got to try this awesome hand-band from Goody, I like that in came in the color black, that it goes with everything and that it's comfortable and makes my hair look great as well. Then I got to try triple shine nail polish from Sally Hansen and I liked it because it looked great on my nails, and tried quickly then other polishes and stayed for over a week on my nails. Then I got to try this Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spa mask which made my face glow and helped me relax, my only complaint is that I didn't enjoy the overpowering smell that stayed on my face and hands the rest of the day! The only product I didn't try was the Not Your Mother's Clean Freak dry shampoo because I hardly ever use dry shampoo but I have put it in my sample closet to try for a different day! All in all I would say my box was a success!

Lamar Gets Sentencing In DUI Case

Lamar Odom will not serve any more jail time for his DUI arrest.

Khloe Kardashian's husband pled no contest on Monday, Dec. 9, and in doing so received 3 years (36 months) of probation, E! News confirms. The 34-year-old NBA pro's license has also been revoked, he has to pay $1,814 in fines and he'll need to complete an alcohol education program by no later than June 9, 2014.

There will be a separate DMV hearing to get Odom's license back.

On Aug. 30, the athlete was arrested for driving erratically at 50 miles per hour when the speed limit was 65. When pulled over, Odom was unable to complete the field sobriety test, and refused to take a Breathalyzer test, which is why his license was suspended. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was released on $15,000 bond later that morning.

Paul Walker Dead at 40: Fast and the Furious Actor Dies In Car Accident

Paul Walker has died at the age of 40, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. The actor -- best known for his work in the Fast and the Furious franchise -- got into a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California and died Saturday afternoon.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station confirms in a statement to Us Weekly that there were two fatalities in a traffic collision at approximately 3:30 p.m. Saturday. When deputies arrived, the vehicle was engulfed in flames. The Los Angeles Country Fire Department estinguished the flames, and two victims were prononced dead at the scene. The Coroner's Office is currently determining the identities of the victims, and the collision is still under investigation.

"It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide," a statement on his official Facebook page reads. "He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. - #TeamPW."

A native of Glendale, Calif., Walker first broke out in Hollywood in the late 90s films Pleasantville and Varsity Blues. He then went on to appear in She's All That, The Skulls, and first joined the Fast and the Furious franchise in 2001. The actor reprised his role as Brian O'Conner in Fast & Furious 6 in 2013. Fast & Furious 7 was announced for a 2014 debut.

While promoting his latest film Hours earlier this month, Walker revealed that his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, recently moved to live with him last year after living with her mother in Hawaii. Walker welcomed Meadow with then-girlfriend Rebecca in November 1998.

Review of the book Andi Unexpected by Amanda Flower

This book was a children's mystery book. This girl named Andi and her sister move into her aunts house and find this mystery trunk in her attic with a doll and papers and such! They try to figure out who it all belonged to and at the end it all goes ok. I don't really remember much about the book. Maybe I should re read it. I think it would be cool to find something in the attic and wonder where it came from. Like a family heirloom or something. I get excited looking back on my childhood and remembering sentiments from when I was a kid such as yearbooks. I also like watching videos on the tv of my family and remembering holidays I used to celebrate, life changes so much, it goes to fast and we regret not spending time on what is really important. In life family, friends,religion,etc those are important, not electronics or stuff that we can't take with us at the end. When we die, we don't don't take our belongings with us. And sometimes we buy stuff to make us happy, but does it really? Does having riches and money really make us happy? People like to think so but it doesn't. And sometimes it takes something that goes wrong in our life that makes us realize what is important. Like someone having unexpected surgery, or a seizure like I did. That scared the crap out of me. Made me realize I might be around forever, so take care of myself and my family.

Review of the book Strange Fire by John Macarthur

I was excited to read this book. It sounded so interesting and fun! It took me 4 days to read it because I didn't realize how big the book was. It was 250 pages and it took me awhile to read it.

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I enjoyed most of the book. The point of the book is what is the correct way to worship and praise GOD and the wrong way! The book talks about counterfeit worship and how it can offend GOD and Jesus. Yet the book talks about how real the trinity is and that is totally false. GOD is the father, Jesus is the son and the holy spirit is what they give us to help us worship him. They are not 3 in one like many people believe so the author is totally incorrect on this. Also the author got one thing wrong about Jehovah's witnesses, we do not believe the world will end in 2033, where did he get that? We do believe the world will end one day but we do not know when.

I enjoyed the quote on in the opening pages, the page xiii which says " it is a sad twist of irony that those who claim to be the most focused on the Holy Spirit are in actuality the ones doing the most to abuse, grieve, insult, misrepresent, quench and dishonor him...." The next quote I like on the next page is " They have become like the Israelites of Exodus, who compelled Aaron to fashion a golden calf while Moses was away." Another quote I like on page xvi that says " People proclaim a gospel of health and wealth, a message completely incompatible with the good news of scripture...The incredible irony is that those who talk the most about the Holy Spirit generally deny his true work."

On page 11 I like this quote " Some backing up their false teachings by twisting the scriptures or claiming new revelation from GOD". I also like the quote on page 12 " Many have over to ideas and practices which come straight from pagan religions, and large numbers of young and impressionable believers have been spiritually corrupted in the process." "Let each remind himself of the prohibition of taking anything away from scriptures or adding anything to it. "

One way to test who is the real religion ask yourself these 5 questions, Does the work exalt the true Christ, does it oppose worldliness, does it point people to the scriptures, does it elevate the truth, does it produce love for GOD and others? Another good reason to know if you have the true religion is to find Joy in it. "Their joy is found serving the Lord Jesus,and their love for GOD is seen in their obedience in him." (Pg 57)I like the quote on page 78 " It chooses bible verses selectively to fit a name-it-and-claim-it theory but it does not love Jesus." I like the quote on page 191 which reads " The spirit bestows his people with teaching and serving gifts for the building up of the church. "

All in all I enjoyed this book because the author really brings out the errors of those claiming to be people of GOD and how they trick you and how they really not of GOD at all.

Review of Payback in Panama by Noel Hynd

I really enjoyed this book, it took me 3 days to read it because some of the book had bits of pieces of history in it which I didn't really care about it and it slowed me down. This book is about a cop named Alex and her fiance Eric and as a cop she has a dangerous job of putting away criminals in jail that are trying to kill her which worries her family and friends.At the end the criminal ended up being shot by someone else and she got married to her fiance Eric. I like reading books about cops and what they go through to save us which makes them great role models. My God father is named Tommy and he is a police officer and was recently on tv. Cops are awesome and help us be safe. They make the world safer which is why so many people trust cops to help them in case of emergency. I know I am rambling on but I am not sure what to say because this review is old and I don't remember much about this book. I did see a funny movie called Hangover 2 when they stole a cop car and had to give it back and instead of getting in trouble the cops called them to a school where they showed how to use a taser gun and man it really takes you down because it is so powerful, I couldn't believe it. It was also a funny movie.

Review of the book Heart Failure By Richard Mabry

I really enjoyed this book. It was about this girl dr named Carrie who fell in love with this guy named Adam but Adam turns out to be a complete different person then who she fell in love with. He turned out to be a person who was in the witness protection program and had changed lives,professions,etc. And that someone was trying to kill Adam and Carrie because she was close to him. Adam thought it was someone that was close to his step father because Adam sent his step father to jail for stealing/exhorting money. I won't spoil the ending but the killer was a surprise, didn't see it coming and not who I thought it was. Man I don't really remember this book either. I don't really know much about the witness protection program but I know they take people into to save them and change their names and whereabouts so so whoever is after them cannot find them. It reminded me of a movie with Hugh Grant where he and his wife witnesses a murder so they get moved somewhere else with a new family and new names and the killer comes after them and it was really intense. Sometimes people get into the witness program because they are trying to hide from an abusive spouse and end up in a safe house that nobody knows the location or name of, and usually they have someone help them get there to make sure they are safe.

Rumor: Kendra Wilkinson Pregnant, Expecting Second Baby With Husband Hank Baskett

Baby No. 2 is on the way! Kendra Wilkinson is expecting her second child with husband Hank Baskett, a source exclusively confirms to Us Weekly. The reality star and former Playboy model, 28, is around eight weeks pregnant.

Wilkinson and the 31-year-old former NFL player, who wed in June 2009, are already parents to son Hank Baskett IV, almost 4. "She and Hank have been planning a second baby for a while," the insider tells Us, "and they are very excited."

Indeed, Wilkinson told Us in August that she was ready to give her son a sibling. "We are trying, we are going to start now," she said. "This is my first official announcement! We are very excited about making the decision to try!" She also hinted that her reality show Kendra on Top -- which airs Fridays on WE at 10:00 p.m. -- will document her decision to have a second child. "We are shooting my second season of Kendra On Top," she explained, "and we have some answers there if you go and check it out."

Wilkinson also told Us that she wants to get some advice from svelte mom of two Jessica Simpson on how to lose the baby weight after giving birth. "I need her to give me advice," the former Girls Next Door star said. "We're caught up now, and I need some advice from her . . . I definitely need it, because we're planning!"

But it doesn't sound like Wilkinson will need any advice on how to raise two children. In July, Wilkinson told Us she and her husband are good at multitasking. "People make parenting so hard when it can be so easy. It's about never feeling guilty, feeling good about what you're doing and never going one minute without teaching him something," she explained. "Hank and I are very proud of our outcome as parents."

Jessica Simpson is ready to get back in her Daisy Dukes!

The reality TV star and fashionista, who welcomed her second child in June, is officially working with Weight Watchers again to shed her baby weight. Andy Amill, who is the company’s VP of Media Sales, told MediaBistro in a new interview that the famous blonde has been welcomed back into the fold.

“We were thrilled to welcome Jessica back on the Weight Watchers program in August,” a company spokesperson confirms to omg!. “With a toddler on the run and an infant to look after, we know she needs a plan that’s simple and fits into her life along with the support that’s so important to moms with young children.”

The 33-year-old first inked a deal with the weight loss company — for a reported $4 million — in May 2012 after having her first child, daughter Maxwell, with fiancĂ© Eric Johnson. And while she lost more than 40 pounds by September of that year, showing off her bod and sharing her diet secrets on “Katie,” she — oops! — became pregnant again and had to hit the brakes on her big bucks deal as a diet company spokesperson.

In December, Simpson appeared in a new Weight Watchers ad for the company in which she announced her second pregnancy. At the time, the company said she would stay on as a brand ambassador, but her dieting and point counting was put on hold until after she gave birth and her doctor gave her the green light.

Now Simpson is ready to slim down again, though she’s had to ease back into her post-baby exercise routine because she underwent a Caesarean section when she gave birth to Ace Knute on June 30.

The whole thing hasn’t been easy, thanks it part to critics. In an interview with Us Weekly following her son’s arrival, Simpson lashed out about comments that had been made about her pregnancy figure by those she described as “weight bullies.”

“I will never understand why people give pregnant women such a hard time,” she told the magazine. “We are creating a human life: I think we get every excuse in the world to eat a doughnut!”

As for her own body, “I am definitely one of those pregnant women who just gains a lot of weight,” she continued. “I have really big boobs, I have my curves and I just gain weight. I can’t help it. … It’s okay to gain weight, and it will always come off.”

We’re sure it will. And we expect she’ll tell us all about it as this reignited partnership with Weight Watchers kicks into high gear.

Britney Spears Ticket Sales Through the Roof

There are conflicting reports out about ticket sales for Britney Spears' Vegas concerts ... some are saying sales are disastrously poor ... Brit's people are saying "it's the best-selling show in the history of Vegas." TMZ now has the numbers, and it's pretty clear -- Britney is about to own Vegas.

Britney will be performing 48 shows a year for the next 2 years -- according to the contract obtained by TMZ. Tickets are available now for the first 16 shows. We've been on dozens of calls with StubHub, Ticketmaster and Planet Hollywood's box office among others ... and here's what we're told.

For the first 16 shows ... a total of 73,600 tickets were up for sale. The number of tickets actually sold are impressive -- 70,242.

Of the available, remaining, 3,358 tickets, 2,887 are in the nosebleed section.

We can't vouch for this being the best selling show ever in Vegas, but it's definitely up there.

Britney sources have told us they're actually talking about adding shows, and if that happens Britney will rake in even more than the $15 mil a year she's already guaranteed.

A review of the book A Plain Disapperance by Amanda Flowers

I will be honest, normally I enjoy reading books about the Amish but this time I had trouble getting into the book. This book is about a Amish girl who gets murdered and they try to figure out who did it. The first suspect is a car mechanic who owns the local garage and all the clues point to him but it wasn't him in the end. It ended up being her friends Dad which shocked me. All in all I enjoyed it because I can't pass up a free book to read and share my opinion on.

Review of the book The Merciful Scar by Rebecca St. James and Nancy Rue

I was excited to read this book from the minute I read the description on booksneeze.com

This book is about a girl who all her life dealt with her problems but cutting herself and cuts herself infront of her boyfriend and he calls 911 to get her committed to a mental ward. They said to help her, she can go live with a nun and her family and try to find herself through hard work, prayer and GOD. I like this book because she ends up finding love, happiness and her life gets turned around.I can relate to this book. When I was in college I was cutting myself, seeing a therapist and wanting to kill myself. To this day I also have suicidal thoughts which is part of my depression which I am on medicine on to help me. Sometimes finding someone who is going through what you are going through makes life easier because you can make friends and can be there and encourage each other to better your lives. It helps to have friends who understand you and want to help you and be there for each other. We all feel sad sometimes but someone with depression feels sad all the time and cannot be happy, they sleep alot, do not take care of themselves, cry alot. Are hard to be around because they want to be by themselves. My husband is nice to me but its hard on him to see me like this.

Review of the book Harriet Beamer Strikes Gold by Joyce Magnin

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in 4 hours on an airplane trip. This story is about a woman named Harriet who ends up living with her son and wife in law and she gets anxious and tries to find more friends. She ends up getting into a scam with this man and his daughther into buying a gold mine to mine gold and she ends up giving that man and daughter a lot of money, so her son looks into it and finds out that she is being scammed and gets the fbi into it and they end up arresting the man and the daughter and then Harriet goes out into her normal life. I enjoyed this book because it is about gold and finding it and making money. Here in CA, you can find gold pretty much anywhere and make huge bucks on it. I also enjoy watching shows on gold, one called gold rush which shows people upping their lives to go somewhere and search for gold by using fancy machines. Some find millions upon millions of dollars and they become millionaires. Other people try and fail but if you are trying then that is all the matters. Just try in life and try to be a good person and do the best you can. Otherwise, what is life worth living for. Don't let life pass you by and you end up looking back on life and wondering what the hell happened. Life is more precious then that.

Review of the book Lead Me Home by Stacy Hawkins Adams

I really enjoyed this book. It took me almost 3 days to read it because I didn't realize how big the book actually was, most books I fly through and read fast but not this time.

This book is about a preachers wife named Shiloh who ends up getting a teaching job at her local high school and ends up mentoring students there and the students parallel with her life too. You see before Shiloh was a preachers wife she was out in the world and had unprotected sex and got pregnant and then had an abortion. And she also had at that time stole a girls future by see her and her roommate got put into a musical competition and she stole her roommates music and got the job instead of her roommate and her roommates life become terrible after that and so later on in the story Shiloh opens up and becomes honest with her family and friends about her previous life and they all end up forgiving her. And this is how her girl students life mirrored hers. Her student was a girl who had made into this musical program based on playing the flute and before deciding if she wanted to go there or not became pregnant. So Shiloh told her about her experience but then told the girl student to pray to GOD about her dilemma and make her own decision. Well before the girl could make her decision she lost her baby.  The whole point of the story is to always be forgiving our of sins as GOD did to us because as long as we are truly sorry for our sins and repent he forgives us and that in our life we might not always have a choice about what happens but that we if pray to GOD he will let it all work out.

I liked the quote at the end of the book that said this: GOD's blessings don't always come out in the package or the presence we expect; he sends them in ways so out-of-the-box that we're often left speechless".

Review of the book We laugh, We Cry, We Cook by Becky Johnson and Rachel Randolph

I really enjoyed this book. I read it all in one day. This book is about a family and there love for each other and for cooking. The book shares heartfelt stories and recipes. I especially liked the reciepe for chocolate pie.

All it takes to cook the pie is milk, sugar, cocoa, flour, egg yolks, vanilla and pie shells and then it tells you step by step instrucstions on how to bake this yummy pie. I cannot wait to make it myself.

I didn't really see this book as a Christian book but a book anyone could enjoy and wasn't really that religious to me in nature.It is more like a cookbook which I can learn from because right now I don't really cook and could learn to make more meals for my husband who right now does most of the cooking. He cooks really good stuff like tri-trip or fried chicken. I eat really bad food and I need to learn how to cook more healthy for my health. I am a bit overweight and could stand to lose a few pounds. I eat junk like ice-cream or cookies which is bad for me because I can't just eat one portion, I have to eat everyday which annoys my husband, which is he gets mad when I bring into the house because I will just eat it and there won't be any left for him. And plus when I eat icecream I get sick to my stomach so it defeats the purpose.

Costa, a center who is entering his fourth NFL season with the Dallas Cowboys, pledged to take on the most famous wrestler in the world as his father in law when he dropped to one knee at the Bellagio in Las Vegas (nice touch, Phil) and proposed to Brooke Hogan, the daughter of Hulk Hogan.

VANESSA LACHEY Talks About Losing The Baby Weight “Don’t Stress”

I think every new mom at some point stresses about losing the baby weight, and celebrities are no different.  Vanessa Lachey, who welcomed her son Camden with husband Nick Lachey 9 months ago, spoke to HuffPo Live about losing the baby weight healthfully.

“I gained, I think, 65 pounds when I was pregnant. And I will say to moms out there, ‘Don’t stress about losing it. It will happen when it happens.’ Cam’s 9 months, so it’s been a minute, and we’re working, and we’re traveling, and it’s just about maintaining a happy, healthy lifestyle, not obsessing about it.”

“I think that’s one thing I would like to convey to moms everywhere. It’s not about this ‘get skinny quick’ diet or these fads. Just enjoy time being a mom. You’ve just had this wonderful, magical moment, and you shouldn’t be stressing about that kind of stuff.”

Kim Kardashian Moving Out of Beverly Hills… to Live with Mom!

Earlier this month, Kris Jenner spilled the beans that daughter Kim Kardashian was planning to move out of her Beverly Hills home and into the Jenner’s Calabasas pad before Kim's baby girl was born. It gets better… according to Hollywood Life, Kanye West is also planning to move in!

Kim’s dramatic early delivery may have put the plans on hold, but not for long. Moving trucks were spotted outside Kim’s mansion on Tuesday. According to the site, Kim sold the $5-million house and was due out by August 1, and Splash says the new mom’s belongings will be put in storage.

Kanye reportedly put his $3.3-million Hollywood Hills home on the market and has already moved out, leaving the couple to live with Kim's parents while renovations continue on their nearly 10,000 square foot Bel Air pad. The couple shelled out a reported $9 million for the home in January.

In other Kim K news, People has a new cover story featuring details about the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star's harrowing delivery.The mag says Kardashian was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center June 14 with complications (Daily Mail claims it could be preeclampsia) and went into early labor.

Although the baby is still in an incubator to help regulate her temperature, a hospital source told People, she’s “doing very well.”

An insider added, that little Kimye is "the prettiest, tiniest thing with a full head of straight, dark hair, a cute little nose and Kim's lips… she's already smiling!"

The new parents have not yet announced a name, but rumor has it that the baby will be called Kaidence Donda West, and Kai for short.

Billy Ray Cyrus and Wife Divorcing

It’s ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ time, as Billy Ray Cyrus is headed for divorce once again. The country singer’s wife Tish has filed papers to dissolve the two-decade marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.

This is not the pair’s first time at the marriage-ending rodeo. Billy Ray filed for divorce three years ago, citing the pressures of fame as a reason for the marriage crumbling. He ditched that plan in favor of giving it a shot and working things out with his wife. Apparently, the fix was temporary.

The couple has been married for 19 years and are the parents of five children, the most famous of which is their pop princess daughter Miley,20, who has her own relationship issues.

The Cyruses only have one child who is a minor at this point, and that’s daughter Noah, who is 13. Tish wants full physical and legal custody of the teen, with visitation privileges granted to her soon-to-be ex-husband.

Additionally, Tish wants spousal support and is requesting that Billy Ray foot her attorney bills. TMZ
obtained the court papers, and the date of separation is not listed.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Divorce Finalized, Finally!

Reality star Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries are at last officially divorced! A judgment was entered Monday night in Los Angeles Superior Court in one of the longest-running divorce cases in recent memory.

Kim and Kris tied the knot in a splashy “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” episode in 2011, but split after just 72 days.

A nasty legal battle ensued, with Kim pushing for divorce out of concern for her unborn baby girl with Kanye West, and Kris calling the marriage a sham and demanding an annulment.

The two reached a settlement in April, which avoided a trial. They had a prenuptial agreement before they walked down the aisle; terms of the divorce were not released.

Channing and Jenna Dewan-Tatum Welcome a Daughter

Channing Tatum is now officially the Sexiest Dad Alive.

He and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 32, have welcomed their first child — a daughter, PEOPLE confirms.

Additional details, including the birthdate and baby’s name, are not immediately available.

It is the first child for the couple, who wed in 2009 after meeting on the set of Step Up. They announced their pregnancy in December.

Baby Tatum arrived in London, where the couple has been residing while Tatum, 33, films Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis.

In April, Dewan-Tatum told Glamour her husband has been a supportive-bordering-on-indulgent pregnancy partner.

“Channing has been great. He takes the route of no confrontation, just support, saying things like, ‘Do whatever you want! What do you want to eat? I’m going to leave it up to you,’” she said.

Meanwhile, the actor admitted he’s clueless when it comes to one key aspect of parenting — diaper duty.

“I have never changed a diaper before, so I may need some help learning,” Tatum told PEOPLE earlier this year. “I don’t have friends who have kids, so it’s going to be an interesting experience to learn how to change a diaper. I hope I don’t have any problems where the diaper falls off and the baby [poops] on the ground.”

Review of the book One Man and One Woman by Daniel Archangel

I was excited to read this book. It is about a marriage that was polygamous with 3 people and how the courts reacted to all of this.

This story is about a man named Alfred who was married to a woman named Trish and end up marrying a woman named Emily too. Trish was a unique person who had many problems steaming from anxiety and having OCD and agoraphobia. Meaning she was scared of leaving the house and always felt everything was dirty and she had to clean everything. And her anxiety got so bad that she couldn't be by herself when her husband went away for work so they put an ad in the paper to ask someone to live with Trish in a spare bedroom they had and that's how Emily came into the picture. The main reason the husband fell in love with Emily was because Trish and Alfred had not be intimate in a while and Trish even admitted to not being the best wife and neglecting him.  Alfred also helped Emily's business start, he helped get the word out about her children book she had been writing. Now at the end of the story, they hadn't been published but they will keep trying. At the end of the book we learn that at first the court of Ohio wanted to end this marriage saying it was unlawful for a man to have 2 wife's but the end they had changed their mind.  The reason was they had to accept all marriages or none at all. Now not all states are like this but Ohio is. And we find out all 3 are living happily ever and that Emily is even pregnant with a baby girl.

I enjoyed the book but it was a long read and took me a while to read it and it was hard to read it all because in between the life story, it mentioned all the court transcripts and those were pages and pages and it made it tedious.

Jessica Simpson Plans to Get Married Soon After Second Baby’s Birth

2013 promises to be doubly momentous for Jessica Simpson: The imminent birth of baby number two (a boy to join big sister Maxwell, nearly 13 months) — and a wedding! More than two years after Eric Johnson’s fall 2010 proposal, the Fashion Star mentor, 32, is at long last ready to wed, a source tells Us Weekly.

During her April 14 baby shower, Simpson “was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born,” the source reveals. Simpson and former NFL pro Johnson, 33, have had to cancel nuptials twice thanks to surprise pregnancy news. Thus, the source reveals, “Jessica said, ‘Let’s have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!’” (It will be the second marriage for both.)

Towards that end, the Weight Watchers spokeswoman — who packed on about 70 pounds with Maxwell — is already mindful about dropping post-baby pounds for the wedding. During pregnancy number two, the singer is getting help from a personal chef who cooks up calorie-conscious food at her new $11.5 million home in Hidden Hills, Calif.

“The chef is there all day,” a second insider says. “Jessica eats things like egg whites and sausage. It’s healthier.”

Blake Shelton to Miranda Lambert: ‘I Have Nothing to Hide From You’

Country power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert aren’t daunted in their marriage, even when the peskiest of divorce rumors surface in the tabloids. You see, the couple has an open book policy in their marriage, and that honesty leaves no room for doubt or distrust.

Shelton opens up in his new cover issue of People, explaining that there are no secrets between him and his wife. ”[I tell Miranda], ‘I have nothing to hide from you,’” he admits. In fact, the ‘Sure Be Cool if You Did’ hitmaker spills that his key to making their marriage work is access to his telephone.

“That’s always been our policy,” he shares, adding that he tells her, “‘Here’s my phone. Go through it.’”

“That’s really the kind of trust we have,” Shelton continues. “There are no secrets. [I'll say,] ‘Go dig through my drawers or my computer if you feel like you need to.’ And that’s been a really good thing, because I don’t want her to ever have any doubts.”

The couple’s emotional performance of ‘Over You’ on ‘The Voice’ recently was a clear sign that the Shelton-Lambert household is built on solid ground — they have a mutual respect and love for each other.
Shelton, an Oklahoma native, teamed up with his wife on Wednesday for the ‘Healing in the Heartland’ special. The show, which was his brainchild, raised money for victims of the recent Moore, Okla. tornado.

review of the book Sherlock Holmes and The Needles Eye by Len Bailey

 **This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I really enjoyed this book. I was skeptical at first but it got better as the book went on. This book answers 7 bible based questions people may be wondering and at the end tells you the answers and in a clear, concise answer so that it makes sense to people. And some of the questions I enjoyed and I am a bible reader and know alot about the bible so this book is for everyone and anyone. And the one main point that I enjoyed from the book is do not wage war against GOD. It makes a good point that GOD will always win and you can see that from many stories in the bible.

I enjoyed the question about why the woman who was supposed to be stoned for committing adultery and why Jesus let her go. Right before the woman was supposed to be stoned Jesus asked the pharisees this statement, "You without sin can cast the first stone." Yet the pharisees realized they had all at some point sinned so they walked away. The pharisees and scribes were actively sinning at the moment they were confronting Christ with the woman.  And when Jesus was saving the woman from being stoned, he wrote something on the ground with his finger.While the pharisees and teachers of the life were correct, that the woman was guilty of adultery and according to the law must be stoned but the scriptures show that it takes two. Her partner should be stoned as well. So Jesus had written the words, where's the man?.( most of this can be found on the pages 33-40).

I also enjoyed the story of David and Goliath and why David had gathered 5 stones to kill Goliath and why the 5 stones are important. I learned that four other giants stood in the Philistine ranks the day David slew Goliath.(You can read more about on page 133-134)Goliath had 4 brothers. He was more than willing to confront all 5 giants at once.

I also enjoyed the part on the wall of Jericho and why on the seventh day the Israelites changed what they had been doing. It made the troops of Jericho alarmed, you climb to the top of the walls to see what the Israelites are doing, expecting an attack from the other side, at the top the Israelites had climbed ontop with their spears to take the troops of Jericho out. And then after the sound of the trumpet, the walls crash down killing the troops of Jericho.

All in all I enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing on some of the answers and I learned alot and I also liked how the author kept all the details of the bible correct and didn't misconstrue any of the scriptures, like many other people do. I would recommend this anyone.

Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez Named on Most Powerful Working Moms List

Note to Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton: Better start lobbying now! Working Mother magazine announced its annual list of the 50 Most Powerful Working Moms on Monday, May 6, and not suprisingly, there are business execs and politicians galore on the impressive roster. But household names Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez also made the list, even cracking the top 10!

 “[This] group of American working moms screams power,” says Working Mother Media Editorial Director Jennifer Owens. “They absolutely have talent, influence, status, money and smarts, but they’ve also shown the strength to overcome great obstacles, the insight to innovate and inspire, and the passion to help better the lives of others.”

The soon-to-be-mom-of-two Simpson was cited for her lucrative fashion line and her role on Fashion Star. Lopez, mom to 5-year-old twins Emme and Max, was recognized for her musical achievements as well as her philanthropic side: The singer is co-chair of the Global Mom Relay, which helps bring greater medical access to mothers in the developing world. And Beyonce, “arguably the hardest working mom in show biz,” says the magazine, was honored for her non-stop work ethic; since the birth of Blue Ivy last year, she’s sung at President Obama’s second inauguration, performed a half-time show at the Super Bowl, embarked on a world tour, and…the list of achievements goes on and on.

Other entertainers who made the cut are Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy, and Angelina Jolie. Click here for the complete list.

Review of the book Duchess by Susan May Warren

I got to get this book for free to write my reviews on it. I am a team member of Susan May Warren on facebook. This is my review of the book.

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**
 I really enjoyed this book because of all the twists and turns and how I fell in love with the characters and couldn't figure how what was going to happen next. 

This story is about an actress who thought she was in love with this one guy she married but turns out she is really in love with a different guy. And this second guy was in love with her all this time too. They end up getting together in the end. The first guy ends up dying and before he does, she finds out he was in love with someone else too and had a baby with her. And the first guy ends up dying because he kills himself from all the stresses of life, I never saw that coming, that shocked me. The book is also dealing with the time period of the Nazi's and concentration camps and such. That hits home to me because of my religion as a Jehovah's witness. We dealt with similar situations. At concentration camps during that time people who were Jehovah's witnesses were given a purple triangle to wear on their chests. Some witnesses were even beaten for not saluting the flag at the camps since we do not salute the flag even then, even today. The only way the witnesses could get out of the camps was to renounce their faith, but they stayed strong and make Jehovah the only priority. Many witnesses during that time went without food and water and freezing temperatures in hopes of losing their faith, but they stayed strong. In 1948 more witnesses were being persecuted because of a communist regime in Poland. Because witnesses were determined to stay neutral and not fight, they were put into jail for a few years. (I got my most of my information for our Watchtower CD published by Jehovah's witnesses).

What I liked about the book was the use of bible scriptures and my favorite one about the meek inheriting the earth. I cannot wait until all the evil is taken off the earth and we can all peaceful and security and play with all the animals without worrying about the animals hurting us. That bible scripture even talks about that how kids can play with snakes and cannot get hurt, etc.“‘The wolf and the lamb themselves will feed as one, and the lion will eat straw just like the bull; and as for the serpent, his food will be dust. They will do no harm nor cause any ruin in all my holy mountain,’ Jehovah has said.” (Isaiah 65:25)

MiCHI Mall Nails

I am very much interested in trying these nails. And apparently they are having a facebook promotion where if you write an article about them on an active blog and give a link of your blog to them, you get a free thing of nails so lets get started.

I have never heard of this nail company before but they have some pretty cool nails. I like the sponge-bob ones and some of the other character ones. What I like about them is the different designs and colors. For example this pretty blue color I see in front of me is really pretty. Its like a spring color. I also really like the princess ones. They are a white background color with flowers on them.

I also think the water coloring nails are pretty too.

I think it looks fancier then other nails you put on. I think also their Disney nails are great as well, you can see them: you  can get like Donald duck on your nails.

I also like the ones with flowers and butterflies on them, I found a post with these nails back in January on there facebook page.

This is apparently a Japanese company that makes fake nails. You remove the double sided tape from the nail, place the nail on your finger, press down on nail to attach, and that's it. Looks easy and nice and I cannot wait to try them.

Lil Wayne suffers another seizure, says he's 'fine'

LOS ANGELES, May 1 (UPI) -- U.S. hip-hop recording artist Lil Wayne says he's "fine" after suffering another epileptic seizure and being briefly hospitalized in Los Angeles.

"I'm fine. Thank u," the "Lollipop" singer, who passed Elvis Presley in September as the male with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

The performer was taken by his bodyguards to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Tuesday night and discharged Wednesday morning following treatment, the TMZ celebrity news website reported.

Tuesday's incident was the fourth health scare since October for Wayne, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.

He suffered a reported seizure on his private jet bound for Los Angeles Oct. 25 and the jet made an unscheduled landing at an undisclosed Texas location. He was treated at a hospital and released.

The plane made another unscheduled landing the next day while flying from Texas to Los Angeles -- this time it stopped in Louisiana -- after Wayne suffered a second seizure and required further hospitalization.

He was reported by TMZ to have suffered several serious seizures in March and was treated at Cedars-Sinai's intensive care unit.

In a March 28 interview with radio station KPWR, Los Angeles, Wayne said he suffers from epilepsy, a chronic neurological disorder characterized by seizures.

"This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures," he said. "Y'all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row."

Jason Aldean Files for Divorce

Less than a week after reports of their separation, country superstar Jason Aldean and his wife of 12 years have decided to legally end their marriage. The ‘Take a Little Ride’ hitmaker filed for divorce on Friday (April 26), citing irreconcilable differences.

People magazine reports that Aldean filed for divorce from Jessica Ussery in Williamson Country in Tennessee on Friday, just one day after a representative for the singer commented on reports of their separation. “I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share with the press at this time,” his rep said. “It’s a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way.”

The separation came less than a year after Aldean was photographed kissing Charlotte Bobcats dancer and former ‘American Idol‘ singer Brittany Kerr in a bar. He and his wife projected a united front in subsequent interviews, but sources told Us Weekly that the couple may have been separated since January. They were photographed together at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards in January, but Ussery didn’t attend the ACM Awards in Las Vegas earlier this month.

Review of the book Letters to Katie by Kathleen Fuller

I really enjoyed this book, I read it in about 2 days. This book is about the Amish people and how they live their life with a bunch of different characters. I enjoyed all the characters. One character is named Katie and how she ends up falling in love with her childhood friend that she thought she would never fall in love with. There was also a story about a grandson who was becoming Amish and joing the Amish community and how is grandma was against at first but then learned about the culture when she visited him and ended up being ok with him being Amish. All in all a very good book and I would reccomend it to everyone.

Another great Amish book to read. I really do feel like I enjoy their part of their culture because it is so interesting to me. I wonder if maybe I was meant to be Amish or something. I like reading authors that write Amish because they do research before they write the book so it really is about what is happening to the Amish and their life. I like their simplicity of their culture and such. I like how much they put into making guests feel welcome such as cooking so much for them, letting outsiders help with chores, etc. I wonder if I could handle the simplicity, I am not sure. I am used to being pampered and catered to. Maybe I could use a break from my life.

Dwayne Johnson Undergoes Emergency Hernia Surgery

UPDATE: Dwayne Johnson's rep tells E! News that the star underwent an emergency hernia operation last night, forcing him to miss last night's Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Pain & Gain. He is now resting up at home.

The movie's director, Michael Bay, cited the recovery as the reason for his star's absence and suggested the injury stemmed from Johnson's other job wrestling for the WWE.

"Dwayne's hurt tonight," Bay told us on the red carpet. "He was pushing it too hard. [ He] needs to grow up and stop wrestling 300-pound men."

The Rock is taking this "no pain, no gain" thing to heart.

Dwayne Johnson announced he's set to undergo surgery next week for an abdominal tear.

"Saw my Dr who had to push my intestines back thru the tear in my abdomen. Kinda romantic," the pro wrestler turned movie star tweeted on Sunday. "Surgery is next week. #BringItOn."

As it happened, Johnson was MIA for last night's Hollywood premiere of his new action flick, the Michael Bay-directed Pain & Gain costarring Mark Wahlberg.

A  rep for the 40-year-old thesp was unavailable for comment.

But news of the operation comes after Johnson got back in the ring earlier this month to take on rival John Cena at Wrestlemania 29, a title match he subsequently lost.

Kendra Wilkinson Rushed to Hospital After Car Accident

Kendra Wilkinson was taken to the hospital following a bad car accident in L.A.'s Tarzana neighborhood, Us Weekly can confirm. The Girls Next Door alum, 27, was spotted going into Providence Tarzana Medical Center early in the day on April 21.

A source tells Us that Wilkinson -- wife of former NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett III and mom to son Hank Baskett IV, 3 -- was "in shock" and "really sore" after the accident. Doctors examined her to determine what the damage was to her body and whether she had broken any bones, but it appears her injuries were not serious.

"She was taken in earlier," a second source tells Us of the former Playboy model. "She was discharged already."

A rep for the star did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Incidentally, Wilkinson recently expressed fears about getting hurt on the ABC diving competition Splash, leading her to abandon the show earlier this month. "I'm so sorry, everybody. It's bittersweet. One thing I don't do is quit. This is the first time in my life I've quit something," she said. "This will haunt me for the rest of my life."

"Big mistake signing up for the show," she tweeted later. "Sorry I let you all down."

Kim Kardashian Goes Shopping After Finalizing Divorce From Kris Humphries

With her divorce drama now behind her, Kim Kardashian deserved a little retail therapy. Shortly after she reached a settlement with her ex Kris Humphries in L.A. Apr. 19, the pregnant reality star browsed the racks at the Giorgio Armani store in Beverly Hills. She also visited a dermatology center.

Wearing a black dress with matching heels, the 32-year-old showed no signs of sadness. It's not surprising, however, given that Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011 and spent the following 536 days battling the 28-year-old NBA player in court. Humphries celebrated the end of their marriage with a concise tweet: "Couldn't be happier."

Unlike his ex, Humphries did not appear in court Apr. 19; his attorney attended on his behalf. "As a result of this agreement, we will not have a trial in this case," Judge Hank M. Goldberg said. "I want to congratulate the attorneys on both sides. This is a sensible way to resolve this case."

Prior to reaching a settlement, Humphries had been seeking an annulment on the grounds of fraud by alleging their $10 million wedding was a ratings ploy. Kardashian, who will welcome a baby boy with rapper Kanye West in July, is happy to have the matter resolved. "Kanye is the opposite of Kris," a source told Us Weekly in January. "He's so supportive and sweet."

Kevin Federline Gives Britney Spears 'Stern Warning' To Slow Down Romance With Dave Lucado?

It’s been three months since Britney Spears split from her fiancĂ© Jason Trawick, but the Toxic singer didn’t spend much time moping about the failed romance, instead she got right back into the swing of things and met her now boyfriend Dave Lucado.

The new couple have been inseparable since their first public outing in February when they were spotted enjoying a romantic Valentine’s Day meal to a sushi restaurant.

Since then, the pair have been snapped on several other cosy dates, including a sporting day trip to a local golf course, and Brit is said to have already introduced her new man to her two sons Sean Preston and Jayden.

"Kevin doesn’t want the kids to think that any man that Britney dates will replace him as a father figure. This is the second man she has had staying at her house and he fears it could upset the children," a source told Star magazine.

"Ultimately he has Brit and their kids’ best interest at heart but he think she’s diving in too soon with Dave and she needs to slow down," adds the source.

Despite Kevin’s worries, Britney has been telling friends how fond she is off Dave and that she loves the fact he’s just a normal guy with a farm in Virginia.

Kevin and Britney split in 2007 after just two years of marriage and they now both co-parent their sons, attending events for their two boys together where it seems Kevin probably voiced his concerns.

"They have had more time to chat at the children’s soccer games recently and Kevin told her he isn’t happy about her bringing in another man into their lives so soon after Jason," the source continued.

"Kevin is conscious of the impact it will have on their lives and wants their upbringing to be as stable as possible."

Kim Kardashian insisting she only weighs 151 lbs, has only gained 23 lbs

Kim Kardashian’s NOT a food-shoveling, 200-pound, fatso — and Kim is telling friends the proof isn’t in the pudding … it’s in the yogurt.

 We’re told Kim went to the doctor last week for a checkup, and she weighed in at 151 lbs … way less than the 200 lbs the tabloids claim.

 And there’s even less. We’re told she’s gained a grand total of 23 pounds from the time Kanye West impregnated her.

Although there’s an epic headline from one of the tabs — “I Can’t Stop Eating!” — we’re told a lot of this is just plain made up. Por ejemplo … “In Touch” ran a cover pic showing Kim shoving ice cream in her mouth. Fact is … the pic was taken in Monaco in 2009, when she was relatively tiny.

And our Monegasque (Google it) spies tell us … the cone is not topped with the fat stuff … it’s dairy free, sugar free yogurt with fresh strawberries. Sounds disgusting.

Take A Chance On Me by Susan May Warren

I got to get this book for free to write my reviews on it. I am a team member of Susan May Warren on facebook. This is my review of the book.

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I really enjoyed this book. It was about a woman who moved to a new town and fell in love with this local man and his son and they ended up getting together and living a happy life together. Alot happened in between and I enjoyed the story line and getting immersed in the book and reading it all in one day and getting away from my life for a while.

I also liked the discussion questions posted in the back and I will answer a few or two of my own opinion. The second discussion question asked the question, do you agree that beliefs need to be tested, questioned, to be fully understood? I think that yes. Before I found my faith/religion I had to not only learn the truth about the bible and what it really says and study with a person who really had Knowles of the truth and the bible as well but study on my own to see what the bible really says and not just trust the person who is teaching me, that not only what the truth is but to prove it to myself so I could prove it to others as well.And that is why I choose as an adult to get baptized after I learned about my faith/religion because I had proved to myself I knew the truth and that is how I wanted to live my life, by what GOD really is all about and by living my life according to the bible and not misconceptions.

I also like the discussion question number 11. It asks, In what circumstances have you doubted GOD's kindness? Did your perspective change over time? Yes. I used to blame Jehovah God for all my troubles and suffering but then I learned the truth about GOD, that he is loving and kind and does not cause suffering to anyone. You can tell that in many scriptures, one example is James 1:13 which reads " When under trial, let no one say I am being tried by GOD. For with evil things GOD cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone." Bad things in life just happen because of unforeseen occurrences. In Ecclesiastes 9:11 it says this:
because time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all" so that just means that life happens sometimes and it doesn't always go great but its not because of Jehovah GOD causing them or suffering.

I also like the discussion question 17 which says, which do you tend to trust more-your mind or your heart and why? I personally would say my heart but it should be mind because as scriptures mention, the heart is a treacherous thing and can trick us.  You can see that in Jeremiah 17:9 which says " “The heart is more treacherous than anything else and is desperate.”

So all in all I enjoyed this book and taking part in all of this reviewing and such.

Jada Pinkett-Smith on Will Smith Open Marriage Rumors: I Tell Him to "Do Whatever You Want"

Hey, whatever works. Jada Pinkett-Smith addressed a longstanding rumor about her 16-year marriage to Will Smith in a new interview with HuffPost Live: That she and Will, 44, have an open relationship.

"No, I think that people get that idea because Will and I are very relaxed with one another," replied the actress and mother of actor-singers Willow, 12, and Jaden, 14. The 41-year-old star then continued of the "persistent" rumor: "But I've always told Will: You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay," she said, without going into further specifics.

"Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man," she said of the Men in Black star. "I'm here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that's not for me to do for him," she said, adding: "Or vice versa."

The couple have battled more than one false report of an imminent divorce, most memorably in summer 2011, when the couple, who wed in 1997, slammed split rumors -- and talk that Pinkett Smith had an affair with HawthoRN costar Marc Anthony during his marriage to Jennifer Lopez. "Will is my best friend," she told HuffPost Live. "He's been by my side for some of the most difficult parts of my life. You always have that for your foundation."

Review of the book A Matter of Trust by Lis Wiehl

This book was another murder mystery book. This book is about a woman who hears her friend being shot on the phone and heard her die and they try to figure out how who did this. And there is alot of twists and turns because I thought I had the killer all figured out but I was wrong.  I like books like this and I read it in about 2 days, the second day I read for about 3 hours because I couldn't put it down. This book was another murder mystery book.I think I would freak out if I was on the phone with a friend and heard her die. I would be scared that the killer would come after me next and wonder why my friend was killed. I am fascinated by killers like Lizzie Borden because I see why she did what she did, she had good reasons and I support her even though people either wanted her dead or in jail. I like watching her on tv and movies, even though they are violent, I resonant with that. Most people think that watching that stuff is going to an extreme but I disagree. I enjoy what I enjoy and I don't need people's permission to do something. We all like different things so lets just let others be how they want. I actually bought the Lizzie Borden movies because I want to re watch it and just enjoy it. I like that I can get into her head and see why she does what she does.

Kim Kardashian Talks Baby Names, Weight Rumors and Cravings

“Extra’s” Maria Menounos caught up with pregnant Kim Kardashian at the junket for her new film “Temptation,” where they talked about potential baby names, the weight gain rumors, her cravings and her role in the Tyler Perry drama.

The Internet was buzzing last week over whether Kim and boyfriend Kayne West would name their baby North or stick with a K name, like many of the Kardashians.

Kim explained, “I think it would be really cute cause Kanye and I are both K’s… but half the names on our list aren't K’s… we still have time, whatever feels right… Kanye being the father wants something that’s unique.”

She also addressed those weight gain rumors and tabloid magazine covers. “There are maybe two or three covers just this week that say I am 200 pounds. I'm like, ‘You are 60 pounds off here’… It wouldn't even bother me if I gained all the weight. And I have the biggest sweet tooth and I love junk food. Being pregnant I don't like any of it.” 

The reality star said she is eating a lot of carrots and celery with ranch and wishes she wanted to indulge more, saying, “I'm waiting for the moments when someone's like let's go to McDonald's and Taco Bell -- that's not happening for me and I'm kind of sad about it.”

Kardashian revealed that the pregnancy hasn’t always been easy, but now she’s really enjoying it. “I'm not going to lie and be like, ‘Oh, it's been amazing and I've adjusted great,’” she said. “At the beginning it was tough for me when your body changes so much… but once you kind of grasp that and embrace it... it's amazing.”

How does she handle such a busy schedule? Kim said, “I kind of split up my days. I'll do half a day of work and then I'll do half day of really just resting and taking care of myself, but I haven't been tired at all.” 

Kim shot “Temptation” just after her split form Kris Humphries and said it was a welcome distraction, “And kind of ironic. I'm playing a wedding counselor.” Kim said. “For my first big film I wanted to do something that was not exactly not who I am in real life, but close enough to where it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for me.”

“Temptation” opens in theaters Friday.”

Review of the book Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock

I really enjoyed this book. It was a murder/suspense book plot. This book was well worth the wait considering it took a month to get my book because they had some delays in it.

This book was about a husband who was divorced from his wife and didn't have custody of his son and barely saw his son but was accused of killing his wife. The wife had been found shot to death in the shower with all her clothes on. The husband had claimed that the wife had wrote him an email that day asking him to come over and work things out and that when he got there that day, a person in a clown suit was leaving the house. So when the police came they thought he had done it and did not believe the clown story. Turns out the boys uncle had killed the woman because he had wanted the inheritance he was owed. Well the end of the book ends with the rightful man out of jail and the uncle in jail for all the caused. All in all it was a very good book and I read it in 3 days . I like reading books like this because its hard to figure out who did it, police consider everyone suspect because anyone can commit a sin and lie about it and they have to figure out who was telling the truth and who is not and its hard to know sometimes. And its hard to see who is lying sometimes. .

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham arrested for DUI hours after tweeting fans asking for them to send her beer

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham was arrested for driving under the influence in Nebraska just hours after tweeting fans asking them to send her beer.

The 21-year-old, who describes herself as a best selling author, public figure and chef, was allegedly caught driving erratically in Omaha at 1am on Monday morning - even nearly hitting a police car.

Police gave chase and the star, who first appeared in the hit show in 2009, reportedly failed a roadside sobriety test and blew .147 on a breathalyser.

TMZ reported the star's arrest and added her four-year-old daughter Sophia was not in the car with her.

Farrah, who is in an online relationship with spring actor and model Carson Underwood, didn't mention her alleged offence on her Twitter account on Monday, bizarrely writing 'HAVING THE BEST DAY EVER!! :) #Love #LIFE.'

Just hours earlier on Sunday, which was St Patrick's Day, the reality star and author of My Teenage Dream Ended, tweeted: '#WHERE ya gettin your #CornBeef today !!!!????? && That #Lucky #Irish #Beer! Send it my way!!!!'

Farrah is not the first Teen Mom to get in trouble with the law.

Teen Mom 2 star Adam Lind was arrested in May last year, Weston Gosa, was busted by police in Georgia on the 4th of July 2012 and reality favorite Jenelle Evans has also been caught on the wrong side of the tracks.

Farrah, whose daughter's father Derek Underwood died in a motorcycle accident two months before her daughter was born, met her new love on the internet.

Farrah has been single after splitting with Daniel Alvarez, and decided to join some online dating sites along with her best friend.

'I tried online dating her for the second time because one of my girlfriends is doing it, so I wanted to do it together,” Farrah wrote on Twitter.

Review of the book Invisible by Ginny L Yttrup

This book was a book about this woman who owns a resturant and is the main chef there and how she falls in love with this one guy and they end up getting married and how she gets close to these 2 girls and they become best friends as well.

I liked the characters in the book, my only compliant was that I got confused because in each chapter a different character was sharing their experience so other than that I enjoyed the book. I liked the characters because they all had real problems that we all face today. Such as hating our body images, how we use food to solve our problems and that we sometimes eat ourselves sick because we are not really hungry but are eating to fill the void in our pain. All in all I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read another one. I read this book in 2 hours 30 min while sitting on the couch and got carried away with the book and lost track of time.

Lil Wayne In Critical Condition at Hospital; Induced Coma May Have Followed Sizzurp Use

Lil Wayne has been hospitalized in critical condition following more seizures, reports TMZ.

The 30-year-old rapper's condition is so serious that the gossip site reported that he was being prepared for his last rites. They've since removed that update, and stress that decisions about his continued care will be made once his mother arrives at Cedars-Sinai Hospital — reportedly, she is on a plane en route to Los Angeles.

Lil Wayne's first public bout with seizures came back in October during a flight on his private jet, which had to be grounded so that he could receive assistance. On Tuesday following a video shoot, he experienced a similar incident that sent him to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Both times, however, he was released fairly quickly.

But hours after his last discharge, one of his bodyguards discovered Wayne lying on the floor of his hotel room unconscious. He was rushed back to the hospital but did not stabilize, and so went on to ICU. He had to be placed in restraints because he was shaking so intensely, says TMZ, who also learned that he has been put into an induced coma, which has him breathing through tubes, and is currently "unstable."

Sadly, the gossip site is reporting that drugs could have been the culprit. Unnamed sources say that the hospital found a great deal of codeine in his system. Doctors apparently had to pump his stomach three times in order to get the intoxicants out of his system. We will update as soon as we hear anything more.

It's worth noting that Wayne's camp have been telling a different story. Young Money rapper Mack Maine went straight to Twitter to let followers know, "Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon." And then, "We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!"

Kim Kardashian Is "Eating for Two," Focusing on "Well-Balanced" Pregnancy Diet

Pickles and ice cream? Not for this mom-to-be! Pregnancy cravings can be hard to resist, but where there's a will, there's a way -- and Kim Kardashian definitely has the will. In fact, now that she's expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West in July, she's more focused than ever on choosing good, nutritious foods for herself and her baby.

"Keeping a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me," the 32-year-old reality star says of her pregnancy diet in a new "mommy blog" post on her website. "And now it's even more important because I am looking out for someone else's well being other than just my own."

"I've been researching recipes and healthy eating tricks to make sure that I get the right nutrition now that I'm eating for two!" she continues. "For me it's about maintaining a well-balanced eating and fitness plan."

To that end, the Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star is seeking help from outside sources. "My friend Harley Pasternak sent me this book and I am so excited to read it!" she says, referring to the celeb trainer's Body Reset Diet tome. "[It] will give you the tools you need to restart the way you are eating and boost your metabolism. I love his recipes and I know you guys will too!" (Pasternak has worked with several other Hollywood moms including Jessica Simpson, Megan Fox, and Hilary Duff.)

Taking care of herself and her baby is a priority for the mom-to-be, especially following last week's minor pregnancy scare. "She's been working a lot, and with a divorce and the move and everything else she has going on, she just needs to take a little rest," a source told Us Weekly.

Added Kardashian herself on Twitter: "Thanks for all the well wishes, I'm doing fine! Just resting...have a good weekend. Love you guys!"

Breaking News: Kelly Osbourne Rushed to Hospital After Seizure‏

ET has exclusively learned that Kelly Osbourne has had a seizure while filming her E! show, Fashion Police, and has been rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital.

It all started when Kelly wasn't feeling well during the taping. Her co-host Melissa Rivers recognized the symptoms of a seizure and Kelly was placed on the floor in front of the studio audience. The seizure lasted for approximately 30 harrowing seconds. Melissa and crew members, as well as an EMT who happened to be in the audience, all rushed to Kelly's side to help. She awoke on the floor, and was shielded by blankets on her way out of the studio to be taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Melissa comforted her during the experience, telling her that everything was going to be okay. Her Fashion Police colleague Joan Rivers was also on set at the time that the seizure occurred at the end of a one-hour taping, and observed the whole thing.

After Kelly was rushed to the hospital, her mother Sharon was seen arriving at the medical center, speaking on a cell phone and appearing concerned.

This isn’t the first health issue for the Osbourne family. Kelly’s brother Jack was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis last year, while her mom Sharon successfully battled colon cancer about ten years ago, and underwent a double mastectomy when it was determined that she carried the gene for breast cancer.

Jessica Simpson Having a Boy: Pregnant Star Accidentally Confirms Baby-to-Be's Gender

And baby boy Johnson makes four! Pregnant Jessica Simpson accidentally broke news of her baby-to-be's gender on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, March 6 -- in trademark Jessica fashion! The expectant 32-year-old designer and singer chatted with host Jimmy Kimmel about the morning sickness that's accompanied her second pregnancy and rattled off an off-color joke. "The crazy thing is I never knew a wiener could make me nauseous," the Fashion Star mentor quipped.

Instantly realizing what she revealed, Simpson laughed and added, "Well, I guess I just told the world that I'm having a boy!" The style mogul's son-to-be will join big sister Maxwell, whom Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson welcomed last May. "I can't believe I just did that, that was not planned," Simpson insisted of the gaffe. "I just did it so crude, I feel awful!"

And the nausea thing is no joke. "It's a totally different pregnancy. I just feel awful, I've been vomiting," Simpson said.

As Us Weekly previously reported, that little could very well go by an unconventional name: Ace. Simpson demurred when Kimmel asked about that potential moniker. "Well, let's hope it's a boy!" she quipped.

As for Simpson's back-to-back pregnancies -- and resultant stalled weddings with NFL pro Johnson -- the former reality star offered another off-color joke. "Maybe I should go back to when I was younger," she mused. "I was a virgin before I was married [to Nick Lachey], so maybe I should just completely reverse and just stop having sex all together until Eric and I actually say 'I do.'"

After the taping, Simpson acknowledge the hilarious boo-boo via Twitter, writing, "Accidental announcement tonight on @jimmykimmel!"

Britney Spears’ Little Sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, Is Engaged

Jamie Lynn Spears is off the market.

Britney’s little sister, 21, who, just like her sister has had a rocky relationship history, finally found a man to put a ring on it. She announced her engagement to the same-named Jamie Watson last night on Instagram.

“Guesssss what??????” she wrote on her Instagram page.

She followed it up right away with a close-up shot of her engagement ring. “☺ #hedidgood” she wrote.

And the ring is certainly nothing to scoff at. The diamond studded piece features a huge rock in the center, surrounded with what appears to be more smaller diamonds around the band.

So, just who is the lucky guy? Watson, 30, is Spears’ boyfriend of three years. Not too much is out there about him, besides that he’s a businessman and not involved in the entertainment industry.

Watson spoke with The New York Post's Page Six in January about the state of their relationship. He told the paper that their relationship, “is really going great.” He explained that while they’ve broken up before, “We’ve been back together for a while now.”

And they seem very much in love from the many pictures of them together littered throughout her Instagram – this is clearly a couple that has deep affection for each other.

Spears was previously engaged to high school boyfriend Casey Aldridge, with whom she shares a 4-year-old daughter, Maddie. The couple tried to make things work following her birth but never married, splitting for good in 2010. She made her entertainment industry debut in Britney’s 2002 movie “Crossroads,” playing a younger version of her sister. She went on to become the star of her own Nickelodeon show, “Zoey 101,” which lasted four seasons.

Spears reportedly splits her time between living in Britney’s Kentwood, Louisiana, mansion and Nashville, where she’s trying to launch a country music career. “I asked her the other night what the hell is taking so long,” Watson told the Post. “But she’s really particular about her stuff. She’s trying to do it right because she knows people will be watching.”

Tori Spelling Is Not Divorcing Dean McDermott, Slams Star Magazine

Tori Spelling is fighting for her family. In light of Star magazine's latest cover -- in which the tabloid claims the actress is on the brink of divorcing husband Dean McDermott, the father of her four children -- the Beverly Hills, 90210 star penned an open letter on Thursday, Feb. 28.

"This time I had to comment because this time I'm answering not as a celebrity but as a mom," Spelling, 39, explained. Though she typically ignores what's written about her, Spelling's 5-year-old son, Liam, happened to see the magazine cover in a local supermarket checkout line. "His proudest achievement so far in his young life is that he is learning to read," Spelling wrote. "Until now, when that pride turned to sorrow thanks to Star magazine."

Spelling continued, "He first spotted me on the cover, then Dad, and then a picture of himself and his three younger siblings. He was able to read two things out loud, the word DIVORCE (which he proudly sounded out) and the caption above his picture which read 'Who will get the kids?' He became terrified."

"I had to hurry him and his confused 4-year-old sister Stella out of the grocery store and into our car. By the time he was fastening himself into his car seat he was asking, 'Why is someone getting us? Where are you and Dad going?' He was anxiously biting his lower lip and his big blue eyes were filled with tears. My heart sank," the Mistle-Tones star wrote. "How would I explain to my children that what these three writers who have never even met us but who claim to know the ins and outs of our relationship and have proudly put their names on this article are flat out writing lies?"

The Oxygen reality star (and daughter of the late television producer Aaron Spelling) noted that "it's been almost 24 years since I became a public figure" and said she's grown accustomed to seeing her name in headlines. "I've built up a pretty thick skin to the lies and trash talking at this point," Spelling wrote. "But my children are another story. Keep them out of it!"

"Driving home I repeatedly told my children, 'That magazine doesn't know us. Daddy and I are very happy and in love. There will be no divorce and all of us will remain together as a family,'" Spelling said. "I'm lucky my two oldest are only 5 and 4 and couldn't read the fine details of the article where horrific claims were made against my husband, their Dad."

Spelling -- also mom to daughter Hattie, 16 months, and son Finn, 7 months -- pleaded with the tabloid magazine to leave her husband alone. "He has stood by me during the good times and held my hand through the darkest moments of my life. I'm so blessed to have him as my partner in life and love and he is the best father to our four children," she said of McDermott, 46. "I'm aware that all that matters is that we know our truth. It's just sad that our actual happiness would probably be deemed boring to Star magazine."

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West Expecting a Baby Girl

Start buying little leather dresses! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just found out they're expecting a baby girl, a source close to the pregnant reality star tells Us Weekly exclusively.

"They're over the moon!" a source close to the first-time parents-to-be tells Us. "Kanye always wanted a girl."

Kardashian, 32, and West, 35, began dating in April 2012 and announced they were expecting on Dec. 30.

The couple's daughter, due in July, will no doubt be very well dressed. "If anyone knows Kanye, they just know how into fashion he is, and I think he's going to have things specially made," Kim said of the rapper and fashion designer on Jimmy Kimmel Live in January. "So I don't think hand-me-downs are going to work."

"He is so excited," she gushed. "It's really cute how excited he is."

Until the baby arrives, Kardashian is focused on taking good care of her body.

"I used to always say I can't wait to get pregnant because I will just eat whatever I want, but it's completely different," she told the spring issue of Du Jour magazine. "I'm like, OK, I want to eat as healthy as possible. Though lately I've been watching shows like I'm Pregnant and Addicted to Meth. It definitely makes me feel better if I'm wanting one sip of Diet Coke or, you know, too much sugar. I'm like, This woman is on meth."

Kardashian and West's baby girl will join cousins Mason, 3, and Penelope, 7 months.

Report: Mindy McCready Dead Of Apparent Suicide

According to various media sources, including E! Online, The Wrap, and TMZ, troubled country singer Mindy McCready, age 37, has died of an apparent suicide, the result of a single self-inflicted gunshot. According to E! News, McCready shot herself and her dog. The Associated Press reports that her body was found 4pm Sunday on the front porch of her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas, after neighbors heard gunshots and called the police.

McCready leaves behind two children, 6-year-old Zander and 9-month-old Zayne. Her death comes just a little more than a month after the death of her boyfriend, songwriter David Wilson, age 34. Wilson's death is still under investigation.

McCready's tragic death follows a recent commitment to rehab and her children being removed from her home. A petition filed by McCready’s father this year revealed serious issues in the singer’s life, including alcohol and prescription drug abuse, as well as erratic behavior. According to a report from E!, who exclusively obtained the file, Tim McCready attested that his daughter had taken to her bed since the death of her boyfriend last month. “Sleeps all day,” he reported. “Drinks all night and is taking Rx drugs.”
