1. Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had a Double Mastectomy
In an op-ed piece for the The New York Times, Oscar winning actress and mother-of-six Angelina Jolie reveals that she recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy.
In the article, the 37-year-old actress goes into great detail about how her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, fought breast cancer for almost a decade before dying from the disease at 56 years old.
After being told by doctors that she carried a "faulty gene" that increases the chances of breast and ovarian cancer -- with an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and 50 percent risk of the latter -- Jolie decided to be proactive and have a double mastectomy.
Here are some excerpts from the article:
"Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy »

Mean girls aren't just confined to the silver screen. Like the toxic ladies in the "Mean Girls" movie, real-life mean girls manipulate, take advantage and put you down. Dr. Phil McGraw, author of the book "Life Code", has seen both extreme and not-so-extreme examples of this toxic behavior. Regardless of where someone falls on the "mean" spectrum, Dr. Phil says they are still BAITERs (Backstabbers, Abusers, Imposters, Takers, Exploiters and Reckless) you must protect yourself from. But... how?
This is the question posed by a woman named Mendissa during a taping of "Oprah's Lifeclass" with Dr. Phil. Mendissa tells Dr. Phil that she keeps attracting mean girls and wants to know how she can continue to be a nice person without her toxic friends mistaking that for weakness. Part of her struggle, she says, comes from the fact that her mean-girl friends don't always seem evil.
"Are people really that bad? »

Dr. Phil McGraw, author of the book "Life Code," says that the world is full of toxic people he calls BAITERs (Backstabbers, Abusers, Imposters, Takers, Exploiters and Reckless) and that evil people are all around us.
The key to protecting yourself from BAITERs, the psychologist and talk show host says, is to know how to spot them.
First on the list is Entitlement.

Dr. Joyce Brothers, who parlayed a psychology degree and a penchant for dispensing advice to troubled strangers into a TV career when Dr. Phil was still in short pants (and Dr. Drew was barely a twinkle in his father’s eye), has died at the age of 85. A favorite guest of Johnny Carson’s, Dr. Brothers was talk-show royalty in the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, making frequent appearances on The Tonight Show, as well as The Mike Douglas Show, The Merv Griffin Show, The David Frost Show, and Dinah! and, later, The Daily Show and Late Night With Conan »
Dr. Joyce Brothers, who spent almost six decades playing psychologist on TV and in print, died of natural causes in New York City on Monday. Brothers won The $64,000 Question in 1955 and began appearing on television in 1958, dishing advice about love, sex, and parenting. Portraying herself in a slew of films and shows and guest appearing on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show close to 100 times, Brothers paved the way for modern TV therapists like Dr. Laura, Dr. Phil, and Dr. Drew. »

The news source reports that Dr. Brothers' longtime publicist Sanford Brokaw confirmed the news on Monday.
In addition to her widely published column, Dr. Brothers also paved the way for television advice shows like Dr. Phil when in 1958 she became a licensed psychologist and hosted her own TV show on a local NYC station.
Dr. Brothers was also the author of What Every Woman Should Know About Men and Widowed -- the latter of which was written following the death of husband Milton Brothers in 1989. The couple was married for forty years and had one child, Lisa.
According to the AP, Dr. Brothers first gained fame by becoming the only woman to ever win the top prize on the game show The $64,000 Question. Joyce made many guest appearances over the years »

Dr. Phil McGraw, author of the book "Life Code," says that the world is full of toxic people he calls BAITERs (Backstabbers, Abusers, Imposters, Takers, Exploiters and Reckless) and that evil people are all around us.

The Winchesters are going into next week's season finale with more determination than they've had in years...
This review contains spoilers.
8.22 Clip Show
Crowley’s finally upped his game in the battle for hell’s gates, and delivered a gut punch for both the Winchesters and the audience with his final, ruthless act. For the most part, Clip Show doesn’t live up to its name with flashbacks - the episode promos made it seem as if the brothers would spend the entire hour in front of the bat cave’s projector - but takes us back to past adventures just enough to make its point.
The old faces we see include Tommy Collins from season one’s Wendigo, Jenny Klein from season seven’s Shut Up, Dr. Phil and Sarah Blake from season one’s Provenance. Using the Carver Edlund books as a pretty reliable research method, »
Texarkana, Texas — A production company owned by television psychologist Dr. Phil has filed a federal lawsuit in Texas claiming improper use of an interview he conducted with the man who perpetrated a hoax on former Notre Dame football star Manti Te'o (Man'-ty Tay'-oh).
Texas-based Peteski Productions is claiming in the suit filed Monday that Gawker Media committed copyright infringement by airing portions of Phil McGraw's interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo (roh-ny'-uh too-ee-ah-suh-soh'-poh).
The 22-year-old Tuiasosopo has said he created the online persona of Lennay Kekua, a nonexistent woman whom Te'o said he fell in love with despite never meeting her in person.
The suit claims one of Gawker's properties, the sports blog Deadspin, aired part of the interview before a February broadcast of "Dr. Phil."
A Gawker representative wasn't immediately available for comment. »

Dr. Phil McGraw is suing sports website Deadspin and its parent company, Gawker Media, claiming it caused his ratings to drop by posting a video from his show where he interviewed Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax, before the interview had aired -- in most markets.
McGraw alleges copyright infringement in the complaint filed in Texarkana, Texas, asking for unspecified damages, reports Deadline.
The complaint, which you can read here, reads, "Gawker deliberately set out to get 'the jump' on the rest of the country and 'scoop' 'Dr. Phil' with his own content. They did not earn that right, they stole it. ... They did not ask permission, they blatantly and knowingly infringed the copyright of the content owner and did so in a way that furthered their interest to the maximum and undercut the rightful owner of the protected material."
