The Extravagant High Chair So much for the longstanding rumors that Beyoncé hates Kim Kardashian! It has previously been reported that Queen Bey turns her nose up at Kardashian, particularly her relationship with Kanye West-a close friend of her hubby Jay-Z. However, it seems that the two have buried the hatchet-and Beyoncé may even have accepted the sex tape star turned reality TV fixture into her inner circle.

Although Beyoncé was too busy touring the world to make it to Kim's swanky baby shower last weekend, her and Jay-Z sent the expecting couple a very pricey gift. According to The Sunday Mirror, Kim and Kanye now own a $12,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair designed by Carla Monchen. What's more is that it supposedly matches the high chair that Bey and Jay's one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy eats her Gerber Baby Food in. Okay, so Blue Ivy probably doesn't eat

Being a stay-at-home dad is tough. Men who stay at home with the kids while their wives work not only have to take care of their household activities, but they also have to constantly defend their decision. Many people cannot come to terms with this gender role reversal and inadvertently or blatantly hurl insensitive statements such as, "I guess we know who wears the pants in that household," or "A real man wouldn't let his wife support him." Most men develop thick skin and learn to ignore these ignorant comments. However, stay-at-home dads hate it when people ask the following questions. -By Frederick J.

Parents are outraged after their three young daughters were accidentally served alcohol at Bazil restaurant in Rochester, N.Y.
According to ABC 13, Jeremy and Dawn DeRoo's 7-year-old daughter said her orange juice tasted funny, but they just chalked it up to being a dfferent brand.
The DeRoos realized their children were drinking alcohol when they heard people at another table say the orange juice tasted like mimosas.

The waitress apologized and the owner offered a refund. He explained that this was the restaurant's first brunch and the drinks may have gotten mixed up. They have since relabeled the juice containers.
The DeRoos say the children were fine although the alcohol made the kids sleep all afternoon and just "didn't want to do anything that they normally would do."
This isn't the first time children have accidentally been served alcohol. Children as young as four have allegedly been served alcohol byRead More »from Kids Accidentally Served Mimosas Instead of Orange Juice at Restaurant

When it comes to baby names, I tend to go for the more unusual options. I can generally dig deep and find some respect for names others use that I wouldn't dare consider for my kids. But there is a limit. You get to a point, and there's just no redemption in an all-out BAD name. So I sang, "hallelujah!" when I came across a Nameberry article featured on the Huffington Post. Look, you can name your baby whatever you want. But if you name your daughter Money, there's a universal law (that I just created) that allows the rest of the people in the world to totally make fun of you for doing that to your poor kid. These 7 names take the cake for the worst of the worst. To put it in perspective, 2012 saw at least five baby girls officially named Money. But the bad naming doesn't stop there… -By Aela Mass

An Indianapolis woman, angry that her son and stepson had stolen a $50 gift card, has punished them by forcing the boys to let the public know that they're "a thief" and an "accomplice to a thief."
Unique Caruthers, 11, and Xacherey Scott, 14, had to hold cardboard signs at a busy Indianapolis intersection for more than an hour earlier this month while their stepmom, Natashia Scott, stood nearby with two younger children and two adult family members, explaining the punishment to passersby.
"This is their punishment," Natashia Scott told Fox affiliate WISH-TV, adding that she wants to deter them from stealing.
"I refuse to let them fall victim to the streets," she explained. "I didn't want to beat them, so now they get to ...stand out here on 38th Street and let everybody know what they did."

Father's Day is just around the corner. Dads seem to be the only ones in the world that can sport a mustache without looking totally lame.

Birthing is hard, dad, really, really hard. It's okay if you're not woman enough to do it, but how about not woman enough to watch it?
According to In Touch, Kanye West is so freaked out by gore that he won't be at Kim Kardashian's side (or, to be precise, her splayed feet) for the birth of their baby in July. "He won't physically be in the delivery room," a source near the Kardashians spilled to the magazine, "He's very squeamish and doesn't want to be around blood."
Before we all circle round Yeezy doing a lively chicken dance, its important to remember that fathers being in the delivery room is a relatively new phenomenon. It was (and still is) ladies-only in most traditional cultures. In the highly medicalized birthing environment of the 1950s and 1960s, most American women were wheeled into a sterile operating room, subjected to an enema and full shave downRead More »from Kanye May Skip Kim Kardashian's Birth: 'Runaway' Dad?
