    Posted by Vanessa Ryan

    E! News thinks Hayden Panettiere, star of ABC's Nashville, looks a bit curvier lately.  I agree she does...but is that such a bad thing?

    The Nashville star was snapped on Easter Sunday lounging on the beach in Miami in a teensy lavender bikini and sporting a much bustier chest than usual—prompting speculation that the 23-year-old Panettiere may have gone under the knife.

    If she did, cool.  At least it looks "tasteful" and not bustin' out in our faces you know?

  • Jake Owen Comes Clean On Why He Changed Daughter's Name

    Her birth may have changed dad Jake Owen‘s life, but Olive Pearl‘s famous father will be the one shaping the future.

    “I look at my little girl and I wonder what she’s going to be and what she’s going to do and what is it that leads girls certain directions in life,” the country crooner, 31, tells PEOPLE.

    “I think a lot of that goes back to what kind of father they had, and so it makes me want to be the best dad I can possibly be.”

    Luckily for Owen, his parenting partner, wife Lacey, is the perfect role model for the doting dad, and the two tackle life’s challenges as a team — even the more unusual ones.

    “My best friend’s name was Pearl — [she] passed away — and we wanted to call [our daughter] Pearl. We were going to name her Pearl Olive Owen,” he explains with a laugh. “But then her initials would have been ‘POO’ so we went ahead and switched that around.”

    Good call on their part!  You have to put A LOT of thought into naming your kids and making sure the name doesn't rhyme with bad words and initials don't spell out stuff like POO hahaha!  I'm sure Olive will appreciate the change one day. :)

    Carrie Underwood and her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher, make their marriage work even though work often keeps them apart. Though she is one of country's top artists, Carrie is willing to put her marriage over her career.

    "If Mike ever told me he needed me to quit, I'd quit," Carrie tells People. "When you make that promise to somebody, and you stand before God and your family and friends, you've got to do everything that you possibly can to make that work."

    Where does a superstar like Carrie go with her hubby on dates.  Would you believe Subway?  Yep!  "We used to call it 'our' place when we were dating," she says.

    Carrie also admits she works hard to look good for Mike. 

    "Even when he's like, 'I'm so out of shape,' he still has a six-pack. Having Mike there, I want to be a hot wife!"

    Pick up the new issue for more from Carrie.

    Heidi Klum saved her sons life and became a real life hero on Easter Sunday.

    The Project Runway host helped save her seven-year-old son Henry from drowning after he was caught in a riptide in Oahu, Hawaii. Klum and her boyfriend, bodyguard Martin Kirsten, managed to save both Henry and two nannies from the water, according to Us Weekly.

    Klum recalls, "We were pulled into the ocean by a big wave. Like any mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water. Thankfully Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land and we were able to get everyone out safely."

    A parents worst nightmare!  I worry about my kids when they are in the water constantly.  I never take my eyes off of them.

  • MTV Star Cause of Death Confirmed

    Posted by Vanessa Ryan

    shain

    Shain Gandee, the star of MTV's Buckwild reality show, died of carbon monoxide poisoning inside a Ford Bronco that was partially submerged in deep mud near his home in rural West Virginia, according to autopsy results released Tuesday.

    The deaths of Gandee and two others in the vehicle were ruled accidental, Cpl. B.D. Humphreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Office told ABC News Tuesday afternoon.

    Gandee, 21, starred in the series Buckwild, which follows the exploits of his friends and family.

    Gandee, his uncle, David Gandee, 48, and Donald Robert Myers, 27, were found dead inside the Bronco on Monday. Gandee and his uncle were last seen around 3 a.m. Sunday at Larry's Bar, where they told friends they were leaving to go four-wheeling.

    About 30 hours later, the county dispatch received a call of a disabled vehicle in a rural part of the county and used all-terrain vehicles to access the area, finding Gandee behind the wheel of the SUV, which was upright but submerged in deep mud, Humphreys said. The muffler was completely below the mud's surface.

    "There was no damage to the vehicle from an impact. It was just stuck in a mud hole," Humphreys said.

    The area where the Bronco was found is one mile from Gandee's home in Sissonville, according to officials. Police used a bulldozer to remove the Bronco from the mud.

    MTV announced in February that Buckwild would return for a second season. The cable network has confirmed it would suspend production of the reality series.

    So tragic.  Do you think MTV should continue on with the show?

    Is Nashville star Hayden Panettiere engaged?

    She was in Miami for the Easter holiday with her on-again off-again boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko and posted a picture that may confirm the news on Twitter.

    Just last week the rumor mill was spinning with buzz that she and Wladimir were secretly engaged with very few knowing the news and Hayden opting to not yet wear her engagement ring in public.  In the photo below you can see a beautiful sparkler on her right hand.  Could it be the engagement ring?

    There's a Name For That?  Apparently so. Learn these names of everyday items and sound smarter than you think you are. ;)


    • Feat – A dangling lock of curly hair.


    • Ferrule – The metal part of a pencil.


    • Grawlix – Typographical symbols to represent profanity (“@$?&S#!!!”).


    • Lunule – The crescent moon shape at the base of a fingernail.


    • Purlicue – The space between the thumb and index finger.


    • Philtrum – The groove running down your lip from your nose.


    • Punt – The hollow in the bottom of a wine bottle.


    • Rasceta – The lines on the inside of your wrist.


    • Rectal Tenesmus – The feeling of incomplete defecation.


    • Tittle – The dot placed over the letter ‘I’ and the letter ‘j’.

    I've been trying to come up with ways to throw any of these words into a conversation with my co-workers...a bit tough.  I'm so used to saying "you know, that thingy part." ;)
