It Keeps Getting Worse: Court Documents Reveal Mama June's 3-Year-Old Was Present During Anna's Molestation

If your 8-year-old child accused your boyfriend of molestation and there were court documents drawn up detailing what had happened, I’m assuming you would need to look those over as the parental guardian of the child in question, right?

Woman Accidentally Shoots Herself Inside Daycare, Which Probably Means It's Not A Safe Place For Kids

A woman accidentally shot herself inside a home daycare in Indiana last night. It’s a 24-hour-daycare so it’s quite possible there could have been kids inside, although that has not been confirmed.

Which is why I am thrilled to have a few recipes in my arsenal that are quick, but also amazing looking and delicious. None of my guests would ever believe how easy this particular dish is to make — but that’s okay, because I’d never tell them anyway. I’d rather pretend I’ve been toiling for hours and it’s probably a recipe that could never be duplicated. I’m sneaky like that. More »

World's Worst Hospital Calls Security On Breastfeeding Mom

There have been plenty of stories about breastfeeding moms thrown out of restaurants and shamed for daring to feed their kids anywhere but the privacy of their own homes. I can confidently say I never thought I’d be writing one about a breastfeeding mom ejected from a pediatrician’s office. A pediatrician’s office. You know, that place that is practically wallpapered with posters encouraging you to breastfeed you baby? We’ve reached a new level of absurdity. More »
