Camila Alves is a successful model and handbag designer, and her husband isn't bad-looking, either. The native Brazilian and wife of Matthew McConaughey stopped by the "Daily Shot" studios to talk about what she and her actor hubby expect from their three children.
"I am a little strict on the kids," Camila admits, and she says she expects her kids to always say "Yes ma'am," "No, ma'am," "Thank you," and "Please." The famous couple also teaches their children to introduce themselves properly when entering a room. "It's not your room. Somebody else was there before you," she says. "Acknowledge them, look them in the eye, shake their hand, say 'How are you?'"
Camila stresses that communication is key, and she avoids tension by making sure she and Matthew enforce the same rules and never send mixed messages. "We've got to be on the same page," she says, "because if the kids can start thinking that they can have an out here to do something, they st...Read More »
Funnyman Jay Pharoah can be seen every weekend on "SNL," cracking up audiences with his spot-on impressions of everyone from Barack Obama to Jay Z to Eddie Murphy. The 25-year-old is one of the youngest cast members on the show, and has been making people laugh since he was a little kid.
"From the age of 6, I was funny enough to pull girls," he says. But his way with women took a turn when his body changed. "When I was 6, it was cool. But when I was 7, I got fat, so the whole thing switched over. It was a drought from 7 to like 17." He used the dry spell to work on his comedy and do more standup.
Now that his hard work has paid off, he might just be getting girl crazy again. Jay revealed one celebrity guest who left him infatuated. "I have a celebrity crush on Anne Hathaway," he admits. "She's beautiful! She's so happy, and she has such a good spirit. I think she's wonderful."
To hear about Jay's worse live fl...Read More »

Everyone saw Miley Cyrus sticking her tongue out all over the place at the VMAs, but if you’ve ever looked at a little thing called ‘the internet,’ you know that an adorable dwarf housecat named Lil Bub did it first.
And while Bub’s dad, Mike Bridavsky, is no Billy Ray Cyrus, he still helped make her famous by posting videos of her cuteness on YouTube nearly two years ago.
Since then, Lil Bub has accomplished a fair amount: she has her own talk show, ("Lil Bub's Big Show") her own movie, ("Lil Bub and Friendz") and a new book out called 'Lil Bub's Lil Book.’ “It tells the tale of how she crashed her spaceship on to our planet,” says her human, Mike, “and in her travels, met me. And we go on adventures.”

In her private life, Bub is relaxed and humble. “She’s totally organic,” says Mike. But rather than squander her fame hitting the clubs or taking a jet to France, the cool cat (who can claim Robert DeNiro and Whoop...Read More »

No one wants to spend more time than necessary on cleaning, but you still have to do it. Ereka Vetrini, host of "Easy Does It" on Yahoo, joined Ali with some easy tricks that can cut down your tidying time and get you back to things you enjoy.
First off, the microwave. You know how you reheated all those slices of pizza and bowls of soup in between cleanings? That means all those little exploded bits of food are now caked on the top and sides of your microwave. To make them easier to remove, Vetrini says, "take a cup of water, half a cup of lemon juice, stick it in the microwave, zap it for three to five minutes." The steam loosens the grime, and you can wipe it all off easily.
Second, ironing. To speed up that chore, Vetrini suggests putting a piece of foil between the ironing board and the garment. Then, when you iron, the foil conducts heat under the garment and you are ironing both sides at once.

Tory Johnson is a successful entrepreneur who helps women start small businesses, and she's the popular face of the weekly "Steals and Deals" segment on "Good Morning America." But one thing she'd always struggled with was her weight. Then, one day, one of her bosses offered to send her to a stylist.
"What I heard, even though she never used those words, was, 'Lose weight or lose your job.'" That kicked off a yearlong weight-loss journey chronicled in her new book, "The Shift: How I Finally Lost Weight and Discovered a Happier Life."
Johnson got serious about planning, discipline, and commitment. But one of the most helpful tools in her weight-loss arsenal turned out to be nail polish. One night, in the middle of a major snack craving, she was about to break her diet and head to the fridge. Then, she spotted a bottle of clear nail polish on her dresser. "I thought to myself, 'I never polish my nails.'" So she grabbed the nail polish and went to...Read More »
