  • Tamera Mowry: Her Mom’s Advice About Dating

    Tamera Mowry made headlines this past summer after announcing on “The Real” that she waited until she was 29 years old to lose her virginity. But the “Sister, Sister” alum reveals she was surprised at the reaction to her comments. “I didn’t think that it was going to be such a big deal,” she says. “A lot of my girlfriends … one of them is celibate, and my other friend, she’s 32 and she’s still a virgin.”

    Tamera credits her mother with helping her stay strong-willed. “She said it’s an easy way to weed out all the dogs,” Tamera says about her choice to hold off on sex. “If a guy really wants to be with you for the sake of just being with you, he’s not going to leave you because you don’t want to have sex with him.”

  • Dr. Travis Stork: The Best Way to Fight Germs on Airplanes

    We've all been there — you're on a full flight, stuck in the middle seat between a cougher and a sneezer with nowhere to turn. Are you doomed to get sick? Dr. Travis Stork, co-host of "The Doctors," says there may be something you can do.

    WATCH: Health Symptoms You Shouldn't Ignore

    If germy particles are floating in the air, switch on your overhead air vent to the highest setting, aimed downward at your face. "The air will actually help push those particles away," he says.

    While many stock up on vitamin C and take other supplements designed to strengthen the immune system for travel, Stork says, wellness is more in your head than you think. "All of those supplements out there, a lot of it is the placebo effect," he explains. "If you're more optimistic and you believe you're going to get better, your immune system strangely fires up."

    "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

  • Lil Bub's Lil Interview with Ali

    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.”

  • 5 Easy Tips to Cut Cleaning Time in Half

    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.

    WATCH: Clean Your Closet with This 5-Second Mind Trick

    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.

    "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.

  • Arsenio Hall: I Took a Break to Be a Single Dad

    Arsenio Hall had the coolest talk show of the 1990s, and now he's staging a big comeback. But since the last incarnation of his late-night program, the comedian learned a lot of life lessons.

    Thirteen years ago, Hall put his career on hold after his son was born. "I just knew that I needed some balance in my life," he says about his departure from "The Arsenio Hall Show." "I knew that I had money and success, but my life wasn't right. I needed it for a lot of reasons."

    Now, his son is a teenager and living in Los Angeles, and the distance weighs heavily on Hall. "I think it's harder on me than him," he says. "He's like, 'Drop me off four blocks from the theater and I'm cool.'

  • The Health Symptoms Too Many Young Men Ignore

    For most guys in their 20s and 30s, health concerns might seem like something in the far distant future. But gastroenterologist Dr. Roshini Raj says that young men should be aware of symptoms and behaviors that could indicate or lead to serious medical issues.

    Some health symptoms might seem commonplace but really need to be checked out, including acid reflux and heartburn. "So many people get heartburn every day," she says. "They don't think it's a big deal, but they could be causing significant damage to their esophagus, and in some cases esophageal cancer. Don't just ignore it."

    What inspired him to start his art form? “A lot of boredom,” he says. “I’ve always made art with whatever’s around me” and this time, it happened to be coffee and milk. Mike passed the time as a hotel barista by challenging himself to create intricate designs until his portraits were spot-on.
