Sonya Fitzpatrick was born with a hearing loss, and as a child, she found that she could communicate with animals better than she could with humans. Now, she says, she uses her gift to help people around the world to understand their beloved pets.

"It's not a verbal language," she says of what it feels like to talk with a four-legged friend. "I start to get feelings, emotions, and pictures, and they transmit them out and I can talk to animals no matter where they are."
Sonya says there's one thing in particular that we underestimate with our pets: that they don't understand what's going on. "They know so much about what's going on around them," she says. "They know if you're going away; sometimes they get a little confused about how long you're going away."

She also says that your animals can hear you send messages to them, even when you're out of the house. "If you are away, you can talk to your animals," she says, "whi...Read More »

As the author of "Real Love, Right Now," Kailen Rosenberg has a lot to say when it comes to helping people find love, and if you've just started dating someone, she has a few suggestions about what to do before things get too serious.
Kailen says that before you define the relationship, you should go on "at least 10 cool, authentic dates." While a good dinner and a bottle of wine is a great date for the first week, "the second week, show me who you are," Kailen says. "Let's take a walk, let's go grocery shopping. What you put in your cart says a lot about you."
She also says not to be afraid of meeting friends and family early, even if it seems too soon. "This one usually floors clients of mine, but meet their darn friends and family as soon as possible," she says. "It doesn't mean you're being introduced as the one. See their world — that's a piece of who you are falling in love with, potentially."Read More »

On "Fashion Queens," Atlanta hairstylists Derek J and Miss Lawrence break down which trends are rocking the fashion world and which celebrity styles miss the mark. Today, they take their styling talents to the "Daily Shot" studio to critique some of the stars' most recent fashion choices.
What do they think of Lindsay Lohan's leggings and oversize plaid number? "If she's out and about just trying to enjoy her day and she puts on these big oversized clothes to try to stir attention away from her, I'm going to say 'do,'" Derek J says. "You can't be dressed up every day when you step out of the house. Give her a break."
What about Miley Cyrus's supertorn white jeans? "I think torn jeans will never go out of style," Miss Lawrence says. "You're never too old to wear them," Derek J adds.

A definite "do" is Eva Mendes's maroon button-down dress with a matching belt. "I love it," Miss Lawrence says. "I love a monochromati...Read More »
Emmy Award-winning talk show host Montel Williams was on the air for 17 years, and now he's back with a new mission — promoting good health education to help people live longer on his Web series, "Living Well With Montel."
When the star was originally diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, the prognosis seemed bleak. "I was told by a doctor, (who) looked me right-dead in the face and said, 'You will be in a wheelchair in four to five years, period,'" he said.
But after a period of "woe is me," Montel says he did some soul-searching. "I did some real hard research and started building my life around facts that could help impact my illness ... one symptom at a time," he said. And his condition began to improve.
Montel's quest to educate himself inspired him to educate others with his Web series, "Living Well With Montel." "I'm going to exercise every tool I can, to live as best I can," Montel says. "I'm n...Read More »

Wondering what to bring to tonight's Halloween party? "MasterChef Junior" competitors Sofia Hublitz and Jack Hoffman show Ali a simple treat that will delight — and potentially gross out — your party guests: vampire dentures.

Simply cut a chocolate chip cookie in half, spread red-colored vanilla frosting on one side and line one-half with mini-marshmallows to look like teeth. Place the other cookie half on top, like a sandwich, and use two slivered almonds or candy corn pieces to look like fangs. If you're feeling really gross, add a gummy worm tongue.
Though Sofia is no longer in the "MasterChef" competition, she's learned a lot along the way, especially from notoriously vocal host Gordon Ramsay. "When I messed up on my cake, he came over and helped me and he pretty much taught me when something goes wrong, never give up and learn from a mistake," she says.
Jack, however, will compete in the final four. Wha...Read More »
