Molly — the innocuous street name for a drug linked to at least three fatal overdoses in the past month — sounds more like someone’s great-aunt than an illegal substance. A better name for the designer drug, according both drug enforcement and medical experts, would be “Russian Roulette.”
On Monday, Juan Pablo Galavis was named the newest star of ABC's long-running "Bachelor" franchise. If Bachelorette Desiree Harstock didn't see a future with the 32-year-old former soccer player, producers did, citing reasons like, "his Spanish accent, good looks, salsa moves and undying devotion for his daughter."

The work may be over for those journalists camped outside of the Lindo Wing, but for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge it’s only just begun.
After months of anticipation leading up to the Duchess of Cambridge's safe and healthy delivery of a son, the celebrations have begun. From monuments alight in honor of the royal birth to monumental, cork-popping shenanigans in pubs around the globe, one thing can be said about the day old Prince of Cambridge: he knows how to get a party started.<i>-Piper Weiss, Shine Senior Features Editor</i> <br>
On Monday morning, Jenny McCarthy was officially named the new co-host of "The View." By Monday afternoon she could unofficially be called the series's most controversial addition yet.
In June of 1952, the month Rose Scott and Patrick Roach were married, Harry Truman was president, Queen Elizabeth II had just inherited the monarchy, and photo albums were exclusively items you could hold in your hands. When the Roaches lost their leather-bound wedding album, they thought they’d never see it again.

Paris Fashion Week began like any other. Socialites, celebrities and editors converged for the Spring/Summer 2014 menswear, read-to-wear and Haute Couture collections, to catch a glimpse at next season's designer trends. It was business as usual for event which runs through Friday, until an invasion guards in leather skirts and snap on diapers turned the runway into a dystopian dream-scape. As swamp-like creatures emerged from the mist, aristocrats hid in giant red drapes, shielding themselves from warriors carrying human heads like shiny new purses. Also, Naomi Campbell was there. <br>
Princess Diana would have turned 52 today. In her short life, she left behind a legacy of aspiration, taste and philanthropy. But in tangible terms, she left behind a wealth of possessions. In the years since her tragic death in 1997, everything she touched became a relic of her reign as the People's Princess. From the blue sapphire ring Prince William passed from his mother to his bride, to the iconic dresses that serve as artifacts on display around the world, Diana's belongings hold tremendous value for her family, friends and for collectors. To this day, her possessions are still coveted as important pieces of history, selling for record prices to the highest bidder. Here's a look at Lady Di's recent items up for auction, or on display. They serve as testament to the undying interest in a life cut short. <br>

In honor of Father's Day—a time when dads' finest moments are caramelized into baseball-tossing, bike-coaching, bride-escorting Hallmark sentiments—I bring you a celebration of those not-so-fine moments in the big guy's career.
Nicholas Sparks knows a shocking amount about "lady fantasies"—the ones where you move to a small Southern town and Josh Duhamel works at the convenience store.
<span style="border-collapse:separate;border-spacing:0px;">We've heard a lot about the work-life balancing act lately, but seeing it is a different story. Twelve years ago, <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.alismith.com" target="_blank" title="">photographer Ali Smith</a>, decided to capture real moms in their daily lives. Not the power-suited mom of '80s movies or the happy homemaker of '50s advertising, but real women with real parenting challenges.</span> <span style="border-collapse:separate;border-spacing:0px;">One botched book deal, forty moms, and $35,000 in donations later, Smith has self-published, <a rel="nofollow" href="http://MommaLoveTheBook.com" target="_blank" title="">Momma Love</a>, a pictorial homage to the tightrope walk of motherhood.</span> <span style="border-collapse:separate;border-spacing:0px;"><br> <br> The original goal, says Smith, was to <span style="border-collapse:separate;border-spacing:0px;">"present an honest portrayal of it to counter the copious amounts of slanted B.S." She recruited both friends and total strangers to serve as muses. Then, half-way through her project, she saw her savings drained when the company planning to publish her book was shuttered. "</span>The money was one thing," Smith tells Yahoo Shine. "But emotionally it was devastating...I cared about the women and the subject too much to let it drop." <br> <br> Enter the fundraising site Kickstarter, where Smith found a groundswell of support for her project (and was able to meet her $35,000 goal to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://MommaLoveTheBook.com" target="_blank" title="">self-publish</a> in time for <a rel="nofollow" href="http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/27-genius-gift-ideas-mother-8217-day-170000091.html" target="_blank" title="">Mother's Day</a>.) In the process, Smith gained a new perspective on the pressures of work-life balance, when she became a mom herself. <br></span> <span style="border-collapse:separate;border-spacing:0px;"><br> "It's easy to make yourself feel guilty about not being with your child when you have to work, or neglecting your life's passions when you're with your child. I struggle with all of that," says Smith, who lives in her mother's old New York apartment with her husband and three-year-old son, Harper. "From making this book, I learned I'll probably be okay as a parent, and that my kid will likely be okay too." Here's a look at Smith's photos, and the moms who inspired her.</span> <span style="border-collapse:separate;font-family:Calibri;border-spacing:0px;font-size:medium;"><br></span>
This week marked a dubious moment in women's history. On Thursday, the FBI added Assata Shakur, to the list of the country's most wanted terrorists. Shakur, born Joanne Chesimard, became the first female on the list, for incidents that date back forty years. Shakur was convicted of killing New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison in 1977. She managed to escape in 1979 and has been a fugitive for the past three decades. But Shakur, who is the step-aunt of Tupac Shakur, never disappeared, in fact she might be one of the most well-known fugitives on the FBI's list. ...

Some celebrities really stepped up in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, using their name and their expansive social network to raise awareness and aid for a city in crisis. Ben Affleck, Mark Walhberg, Sophia Bush, and even Justin Bieber have taken a break from promoting their latest projects on Facebook and Twitter, in order to meditate on the tragedy. But for some stars, the break was short-lived. Here's a collection of celebrity tweets posted just after after they tweeted prayers for victims of the Boston bombing.
Vice founder Shane Smith says his new HBO documentary series Vice is "not traditional journalism." Let's be real: three white guys reporting on international politics is about as traditional as you can get.
If you took a little nap last Friday and your alarm just went off now, you've got a lot of catching up to do. For starters, two women were appointed to top governmental security positions, guilt trips got a bad rap, and cats were all up in our faces. Also we learned little from the Supreme Court, and a lot about hard boiling eggs. (We've been totally doing it wrong!) It was a week where we really needed a good laugh and guess who brought it? Commenters. Forget the headlines, here are all the best reactions, courtesy of the Yahoo! Shine peanut gallery. ...
