Dad Jokes Are Good For Kids: A new study by Arhus University in the United Kingdom reveals that dad jokes may be good for children. Researcher Marc Hye-Knudsen says embarrassing your kids just a little can help teach them how to overcome awkward moments. ''I think it’s important to embarrass your kids. Or, to be more specific, I think it’s important to do things traditionally viewed as embarrassing until your kids are basically immune to the effects. After years and years of being exposed to eye-roll-inducing humour, with a complete disregard for what anybody else thinks, kids will have nothing greater left to fear. They’ll gradually build up a strong immunity to judgement and embarrassment, and actually feel empowered to be themselves''

He wore a black tuxedo while she wore a white wedding gown. Rene says, “Since last Summer, I was telling my then-fiancé that I wanted to elope the day of Taylor's concert, whenever that would be.

Why would I get married at a courthouse when I could get married with Taylor Swift?”

Miley Cyrus tells Elle magazine that she thought she knew everything when she was younger. "When I was 16, I thought I knew everything. I didn't even know who I was. When people say you're going to be so different at 22 or 23, when you're 16, you're like, I'm so not! And then you change drastically. You're not in your final form when you're a teenager. You're not even close.”

Kim Petras tells Billboard magazine that female artists were her only friends when she was in school. “Women in pop music were my only friends in high school — they were everything I wanted to be and gave me the strength I needed to be my true self and live my life authentically.

The Daily Mail says Cameron Diaz may retire from acting again because Jamie Foxx had a meltdown on the set of their new film. A source tells the newspaper, 'She hates drama and confrontation.

The International News, citing Heat magazine, says Ben Affleck is allegedly having a hard time dealing with Jennifer Lopez's diva demands. A source tells the news outlets, "They're having a terrible time agreeing on what their dream home is. They bicker constantly over Jen's diva demands and her ever-changing list of requirements. Nothing seems to be good enough for her, and Ben's getting bored and frustrated – sometimes he feels like nothing he does can make her happy. Finding something absolutely perfect has become an obsession and it's made the whole process a nightmare. Ben just wants her to choose a place and stick to it, but she's not having any of it. Jen can be red hot on a place one day, and change her mind by the next. Ben wasn't surprised at all when she lost interest in the last place. Her doubts set in almost immediately after agreeing to buy it. She seems to get a kick out of looking at property after property and never actually making a final decision. Jen’s adamant that they’re the king and queen of Hollywood, so need their own castle, which is bigger and better than anyone else’s.”

Then it goes viral, and our fans get mad at me. But I was 12 years old with Mariah Carey pictures on my wall, and that becomes my wife. And the fact that she’s the coolest person I ever met. She’s just always happy, always doing for others. No matter what’s happening in life. I’m like, ‘Wow, a person can really operate like that and don’t allow negative energy into they space.’When I found that out about how remarkable she was, that woman is not human. She’s a gift from God.''

Marriage Can Lower Women's Death Risk

A new study published in the Global Epidemiology journal reveals that marriage may reduce the female death rate by as much as 33%. The study found that being married is good for women's physical and mental health, even if they end up divorcing later in life. Researchers followed thousands of women over the course of 25 years before determining a positive link between marriage and the lifespan of females. The study authors believe there should be new policy changes to promote healthy marriages because the current marriage rate has plunged to record lows in America.

Dear Fonseca

My wife and I received a call from our daughter late last night. She ran out of money while on Spring Break with her friends. My wife wants to send her cash. I don't think we should. She's 21 and an adult and needs to be responsible for herself. She can ask her friends for money. My mother-in-law thinks we are being cruel by not offering any cash. I disagree. It's called tough love. Our daughter needs to be an adult. Are we being cruel or good parents?
