John Mayer’s new video vixen for his latest single “Paper Doll” is an unlikely star: Prancercise creator Johanna Rohrback.
Yup, the Coral Springs, Florida-based 61-year-old real estate agent turned choreographer of Prancercise, the galloping-trotting exercise routine that went viral in May, has teamed up with Mayer to star in his new music video.
The video, posted to YouTube on Tuesday to almost 8,000 views, is entitled “Advance Prancercise” and opens with Rohrback saying, “What about a prance to romance to? So what about Prancercising to John Mayer’s ‘Paper Doll?’” Rohrback, wearing a white shirt tucked into fitted, black pants, a chunky white necklace, and sporting perfectly coiffed hair, dives into her springy, rhythmic gallop, unleashing her inner pony onto her quiet neighborhood streets—and her undoubtedly fed-up neighbors.
Rohrback created and trademarked Prancercise in 1989 but the workout only took off in 2012 when she self-published the book “Prancercise: The Art of Physical

Dr. Mehmet Oz has some stern words for new mom Kim Kardashian: Focus on your newborn baby girl.Read More »from Kim Kardashian's Pre-Term Delivery: When Reality is Too Real for TV
On Sunday, the host of The Dr. Oz Show shared his thoughts on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s pre-term baby (defined as a baby born before 37 weeks of pregnancy) with US Weekly at the Daytime Emmy Awards in Beverly Hills. He said, "We change how a child responds to a world around it in those first few weeks of life, so they ought to really focus in on that little girl. It's sacred, those first few months, for all babies but especially for the premature. It's a sacred time. They should focus on the child."
For reality stars who've traded privacy for profitable careers in front of the camera, it's not so easy to shift gears. Beyond the contractual obligation with a network, there's the contractual obligation with fans (Kim has millions of them) who expect an all-access pass. The over-sharing, and over-receiving, is hard to give up. But some moments just are too real for TV.

The kids were interviewed by phone about whether they had been victimized by a sibling in the past year. For kids under the age of 9, a parent answered on their behalf.
“In the past, people have viewed sibling bullying as more acceptable behavior than schoolyard bullying and some even say that it can prepare them for dealing with real-world conflict,”

Do you like your salad with a side of beefcake?
Kraft thinks you do. Its latest print ad campaign for Zesty Italian Dressing features a muscular man lying naked on a picnic cloth arranged strategically over his body. The tagline reads, “Silverware optional—Let’s get Zesty.” Since April, the brand has embraced a new approach to selling salad dressing, relying on the talents of bare-chested spokesperson with a knack for turning cooking demos into seductive innuendo.

Earlier this week, the Utah-based magician withdrew $1,000 from his own savings account, combed his neighborhood for people in need, and offered to show them a magic trick. It works like this: Edge shows the person a $1 bill, folds it, and places it inside his or her hand. Then, he takes out a $100 bill, folds it, and asks the person to hold it in the same hand and make a fist. Then, Edge reaches into his or her hand hand to pull out a bill, which is somehow always the $1 bill. Watch the video below.
Now, for the hocus-pocus: Edge said, “If you believe that you can make the bills switch, if you want it bad enough, I’ll let you keep whatever is in your hand. Just believe. Ready?” Both parties first-bump and open their hands. Edge is now holding the $1 bill, and the other

According to Refinery 29, who got the scoop from Moss’ hair stylist Oribe on Sunday during his La Fama hair show in Miami, Moss will appear on the cover of the January 2014 issue for Playboy's 60th anniversary.
Whether it's just a rumor remains to be seen but is the news all that surprising?
For one thing, landing the cover of Playboy isn’t exactly scandalous. Celebs who have posed (Kim Kardashian, Tara Reid, Denise Richards, Drew Barrymore) have done so wearing bathing suits or T-shirts. Madonna wore a black jacket over a black lace shirt and black pants on one of her Playboy covers, and even former Playmates Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt, and Kendra Wilkinson, Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriends and stars of the reality television show, “The Girls Next Door” posed wrapped head-to-toe in a bed sheet. Plus, the celebs that have gone naked for the cover, such as Lindsay Lohan and Pam Anderson, strategically covered

A British department store Debenhams is vowing to scale back on airbrushing. According to a statement posted Wednesday on the company’s Facebook page, the clothing retailer will cut back on retouching photos of lingerie models.
More on Yahoo! Shine: Kate Upton On The Cover of Vogue: Why It Matters
In an effort to illustrate how much re-touching is applied to images, the store posted a photo of a lingerie model whose body is marked up by common retouching directions. For example, smoothing out hair and removing any strays, whitening her teeth, softening creases and her collarbone, thinning out her arms, waist, and chin, removing wrinkles, brightening eyes, creating more definition and shadows in her cleavage, softening her hands, and flattening her stomach. Debenhams also released before-and-after images of the model to illustrate the unrealistic outcomes of retouching.
