Paige Hemmis Will Receive The Rebecca Lynn Cutler Legacy Of Life Award



Back in April I interviewed Paige Hemmis who, in addition to working as a designer for ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, also works alongside the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), Dr. Jesse H.

Hey, Megan Fox – No One CARES If You Cut Yourself



As I was killing some time on Facebook the other day, I ran into an interesting (read: disturbing) Us Weekly post titled “Megan Fox: I Used to Cut Myself.”

The bad news (of course, I'm positive there is a slew of fangirls out there who'd beg to differ) is Jackson hasn't yet received her first kiss from Robert Pattinson.
