We've all been there — you're on a full flight, stuck in the middle seat between a cougher and a sneezer with nowhere to turn. Are you doomed to get sick? Dr. Travis Stork, co-host of "The Doctors," says there may be something you can do.
If germy particles are floating in the air, switch on your overhead air vent to the highest setting, aimed downward at your face. "The air will actually help push those particles away," he says.
While many stock up on vitamin C and take other supplements designed to strengthen the immune system for travel, Stork says, wellness is more in your head than you think. "All of those supplements out there, a lot of it is the placebo effect," he explains. "If you're more optimistic and you believe you're going to get better, your immune system strangely fires up."
And, of course, take some hand sanitizer with you. "Airplanes are the one time I bring alcohol-ba...Read More »

You might not recognize Anderson Davis with his shirt on. As the face — and abs — of Kraft Italian salad dressing, the sexy spokesperson inspires cooks to bring a little zestinesss into their kitchens with his sultry ads.
Yes, he's hot. But has he always been hot? "I was extremely ugly from about 2 to 18," the actor says, though his childhood photos prove otherwise. "I started taking men's multivitamins, and things started happening," he jokes.
With all those good looks, is Anderson concerned people won't appreciate his mind? "I want people to go, 'Well, you know, he's not just a shirtless guy — he can act.'"

Anderson also shares three things, besides salad dressing, that he finds zesty. "Fishing," he says. "Women … I respect women. I have four sisters." And the last thing? "Right now, coffee." To find out which of his commercials were the easiest and most difficult to shoot, check out this episode of "Daily Shot."...Read More »

You know her from "Desperate Housewives," "Body of Proof," and "China Beach," but there's one thing that might surprise fans of the seasoned star: She's chosen to stay single.
"It's scaring me a little bit how much I love it," the 57-year-old says of her solo status. "The older I get, the more I love it." Dana also suggests that women get a bad rap for deciding not to get married: "Young girls need to hear that, that it's OK."
Dana remembers deciding she wasn't going to have kids when she was just 16 years old. Looking back, she says she's happy she didn't change her mind. "I don't regret it," she says. "I have plants!"
She also talks about her audition for the role of nurse Colleen McMurphy on "China Beach." "I wasn't that good of an actor at that point," Dana says. "I didn't have a lot of experience, so I needed to stay in character when I was auditioning for something, so I decided that character was Clint Eastwood."

Looking at Evelyn Lozada, you wouldn't guess she has a 20-year-old daughter. The "Basketball Wives" star is also a fitness expert and a fashion contributor to OK! magazine, and says "you don't have to spend a lot of money" to look youthful.
Evelyn recommends three fashion staples to help you take years off your look.
"Blazers are something that's timeless," she says. "One of the things I love for fall are the over-the-knee boots." And finally, "A nice little pump," she says. "It doesn't have to be a stiletto."
Evelyn's not a fan of the stiletto look in general. She says the one trend you shouldn't follow this season is stiletto nails. "It's just better to keep them short and pretty."
She also credits her antiaging regimen for keeping her looking younger. She uses a nutritional supplement called youthH2O Age Defying System. "It's great for your skin, it gives you energy."
To hear what Evelyn thinks is th...Read More »

Alice Ripley won the Tony Award for her 2009 performance in "Next to Normal." Now she's starring in the musical remake of the classic horror tale "Carrie" at the Moore Theatre in Seattle. Alice plays Margaret, an overprotective, unbalanced mother. Given her past roles, the actress might be used to playing overly complex women.
"The last character I played on Broadway, Diana in "Next to Normal," she was a misdiagnosed bipolar schizophrenic," she says. "I think Diana was just really dramatic, but Margaret, I believe to be insane."
With the horror tale set to music, Alice admits that the story has a bit of a different tone. "The musical tone seems to be similar to 'A Nightmare on Elm Street,'" she says. "It's another world. It's a fantasy world."

"Carrie: The Musical" begins its Seattle run on Oct. 10. Alice admits there's one thing that makes her uneasy about the production. "I am a little nervous...Read More »
