Matt McGorry plays the adorable Officer John Bennett on "Orange Is the New Black," but the handsome actor and former bodybuilder started out as a somewhat nerdy kid.
McGorry won his school's eighth-grade science fair for a project on "surface tension," and as a gift for his good work, his parents arranged a unique present: a personal trainer.
"At the time, I was probably a little self-conscious about my body," McGorry says about his awkward years. "I kinda hated it in the beginning, but I kept with it." The teenager soon realized the workouts were transforming both his body and his confidence. "The more work you put in, the more you get out," McGorry says. "I could see the progress."
The results eventually led him to bodybuilding competitions, and he became a personal trainer before he made it big onscreen. But despite his growing "Orange Is the New Black" fame, McGorry does his best to stay ground...Read More »

We've all heard the term "lovesick," but what about "lovestupid"? Author and relationship coach Tionna Smalls says that the biggest mistake women make when they start dating a guy is "not having a life. As soon as they get a man, they get stupid. They don't want to go to go to the gym anymore, they don't want to go get their hair done anymore, all they want to do is just do their man."
Tionna says women also fall into the "Prince Charming" trap and assume they're "just going to live happily ever after" whenever the right one happens to come along. The love coach has a very different view: She advises women to date more than one guy at a time until the right one works out. "I look at dating as a race," she says. "Whoever's going to make it at the end of the line will be my man!"
She offered up some helpful categories as examples of dating different types of men. "You've got the money man, the funny man, the dude you can go to restaur...Read More »

Kathy Hilton is an actress and fashion designer, but her most famous role may be that of a mom. While she has four kids, Kathy says her two daughters--socialite Paris Hilton and fashion designer Nicky Hilton--had the biggest impact on her parenting style.
Kathy says she was brought up in a very strict household, and when she became a mom at 19, she stuck with what was familiar. “We were raised very strict, and I was that way because that was all I knew,” she says.
She applied the same philosophy with her older daughter Paris, who went on to make headlines for her hard-partying ways, even ending up in jail on a few occasions. Kathy says Paris gave her a run for her money "for a good 2 or 3 years."
During that period, Kathy’s younger daughter, Nicky, gave her an important piece of advice. “She said ‘Mom, do yourself one favor. Do not box me in like that.’” Kathy loosened the reins and saw how it affected Ni...Read More »

Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott have been competing their entire lives, and at age 35, they’re still going at it on HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother. Despite the deep-seated sibling rivalry, they agree on one point – there are some things you just shouldn’t say to twins.
“Didn’t you just walk by?” or “Am I seeing double?” tend to be the most cliché and annoying, but the duo has also fielded some unique questions from fans, including marriage proposals on Twitter. But don’t dare look at them as the same person. “Nothing cheapens it like ‘Oh will you marry me, Jonathan? Or Drew, I’ll take either!’” Drew says.
Another question the brothers receive is “when one twin gets hurt, does the other one feel it?” Not normally, Drew says, “but when we were younger, we actually did have a scenario like that.” Drew injured his knee playing college basketball and had to go for surgery, while Jonathan, who was living in another city, took off from work beca...Read More »

As a celebrity hairstylist, Kim Kimble has trimmed the tresses of everyone from Beyoncé to Whitney Houston to Lady Gaga. The style guru and star of L.A. Hair stopped by Daily Shot to reveal the one cut she believes any woman can pull off.
Kim also says there is one mistake women tend to make when deciding on a new look: a snap decision about how much to take off. “They should never make a decision irrationally,” she warns. “Plan for a hair cut…try on a wig and see what that looks like first. It’s a commitment!”
To find out what legend...Read More »
