Before Kim and Kanye or Angelina and Brad, did you know that Kim Kardashian dated Mariah Carey's husband Nick Cannon? Or that Brad Pitt was linked to fellow celebrity parent Christina Applegate? In fact, Oprah and Roger Ebert even dated back in the day! I'm sure all of the Golden Globes and Oscar after-parties have got to be one of the most awkward places for celebs to bump into their old flames! -By Joanna Mazewski

- Thu, Apr 25, 2013 3:20 PM EDT | CommentsToday the Environmental Working Group released its 2013 Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen lists to highlight the pesticide loads in various types of produce. We'll go over the Clean Fifteen later in the week, but we wanted to start by taking a look at the foods that made the 2013 Dirty Dozen list. The list is compiled by measuring the percentage of samples that contained pesticide residue, the percentage that had more than one type of pesticide, the average number of pesticides found, the volume of all pesticides, the maximum number of pesticides found on a single sample, and the total number of pesticides found on a given commodity. The result is a pretty comprehensive picture of how likely or unlikely the crop is to contain pesticides. Looking through this year's Dirty Dozen, the thing that most stands out is that these are mainly fruits and vegetables with thin skins, which makes sense because their thin skins make them more vulnerable to pests. Though, you shouldn't let this list deter you from eating fruits and vegetables. Eating a few pesticides isn't nearly as bad as depriving your body of the nutrients it gets from fresh produce. Instead, use the list as a way to focus your grocery budget. So what's on the Dirty Dozen? Click though to see the top 7. - By Elizabeth Stark and Brian Campbell

Polka dots: super-cute on clothes, not so cute on your face. Sadly, when acne pops up, it's not just the zit itself that can be a bummer - acne blemishes are wounds, so just like any other time that your skin is inflamed, a scar can be left behind for weeks. To figure out how to prevent and treat acne scarring, we reached out to dermatologist Dr. Ronald Moy, who gave us the low-down on how to de-spot our visages.

To keep your skin clear, the key is to start with prevention - and since acne is technically a skin infection, it should be treated as such. "One of the most effective ways to address acne is by targeting it at its root cause: bacteria," says Dr. Moy. "You can kill bacteria with prescription antibiotics, but there are natural options - such as sandalwood oil - which kills acne bacteria on contact."
When acne does crop up (and let's be honest, no matter how rigorous we are with our skin care routines, we always seem to end up with a big fat one at least once a month), Dr. Moy says that the key with scar prevention is to baby your complexion as you treat it, to avoid traumatizing your already-irritated skin. If you have deep scarring, Dr. Moy says, you may want to see your dermatologist to receive a laser treatment, but for your everyday spots and red marks, there are a number of products that will encourage cell turnover to reveal a more even skin tone with regular use.

I love creating tiny worlds and there are so many (so very many) adorable accessories for the miniature garden trend. Like terrariums there are just so many different options for theme, plant material, containers - I had trouble narrowing it down to just 25. And because these are popular with children and adults, I've included supplies and kits for a variety of skill levels and ages.

I've heard that the games are not that fun, but there are a million different themes for the party and that can set the tone for the whole day. I have been checking out different baby shower ideas over the past few months and some themes are pretty common. I like unusual, unique things that stand out and that's where a book-theme comes in. Forego the typical baby gifts and ask your guests to bring a book for the child's library.

- Thu, Apr 25, 2013 2:01 PM EDT | CommentsI love being pregnant (when I'm not sick and being constantly poked and prodded). So much so that there are things I'll really miss after it's over. A lot. Being pregnant tends to give you a free pass to do/say/act in ways that might never be acceptable outside of your obvious pregnancy state. Many of us start to enjoy these little "freedoms" while we're given the chance. At 19 weeks, I'm finding myself getting used to this pregnant way of life, and it's going to be hard to change back to normal. The majority of them seem to put a bit of a - damper - on the rest of life. When you're back to your post pregnancy state, you might start to wonder why anyone would willingly go back or long for the days of no cravings, regular jeans, and dull hair. These are my (and I know many others) experiences during pregnancy that *ruin* the rest of an un-pregnant life. Enjoy! - By Diana Stone
