    Back in February, we found out that Kate Middleton would be getting waxed (no, not like that!) at not on, not two, but four locations of the world-famous wax museum, Madame Tussauds. And hey, guess what? Debut day is here!

    Today, Kate's wax likeness will be unveiled at three of the four planned locations: New York, Amsterdam, and the original Tussauds location in London. The fourth statue will debut at Blackpool later in the month. Want a sneak peek of the New York statue? Here you go, courtesy of People!

    Pretty good, isn't it? All four of Kate's statues will be wearing a different outfit; in the Big Apple, she's donned the lilac Alexander McQueen number the real Duchess of Cambridge wore to last summer's BAFTA gala in Los Angeles, complete with Jimmy Choo platform sandals and clutch-and, of course, a "painstakingly accurate" recreation of the

    Pet lovers, none of you would ever let your precious pooch or kitten go without protection from harmful fleas and ticks. But with the warm weather springing up a little too early, dogs and cats in shelters are more likely to be tormented by these insects.

    Luckily, however, help is on its way! As part of a campaign with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), PetArmor will donate up to 20,000 vital flea and tick treatments to shelter pets. Simply "Like" the company's Facebook page and head over to the PetArmor Protection Promise tab.

    Then, select one of three worthy recipients for the donation. Funds can go to ASPCA's national disaster relief efforts, a shelter with high flea and tick rates, or a shelter in your area.

    "As an animal rescue advocate and proud dog mom, I am so excited to be working with the ASPCA and PetArmor on this wonderful campaign

    Who here is excited for the Olympics? We are, we are! The 2012 Summer Olympics are taking place in London this year, and the city has big plans for launching the Games in grand British style. How?

    With James Bond, of course-because what's more British than 007?

    According to the Sun, the Queen herself personally invited Daniel Craig as James Bond to open the Olympics in the form of a short film. Entitled "The Arrival," the film will be directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, Trainspotting, etc.), who is also the Artistic Director of the 2012 Games' opening ceremony. "The Arrival" will feature 007 as played by our boy Daniel arriving at Buckingham Palace by Royal Appointment-only to be told that his latest mission is to launch the

    Writer and performer Adelaide Mestre had no ordinary childhood. The daughter of a socialite mother and a musically-gifted father, she spent her early years on Manhattan's Park Avenue. But underneath the glitz and glamour, her parents were anything but traditional.

    And that's why Top Drawer, Mestre's one-woman show, is taking New York City by storm. An autobiographic tale of self-discovery, this leading lady will make you laugh and break your heart.

    We chatted with Mestre about growing up with a gay father, the trials of dating, and how she feels about her parents now.

    If you're in the Big Apple this April, be sure to check out a performance of Top Drawer on April 1st, 8th, or 15th at the Triad Theatre. For ticket information and times, visit BrownPaperTickets.com.

You feel kind of like you've survived the Punic Wars: Peace is at hand with someone you adore and who adores you. How do you know that your relationship can go the distance? Will it turn into a marriage? "America's Marriage Doctor" Jacqueline Del Rosario has a checklist, if you will, of 7 signs that you can use to analyze your relationship and figure out if it's got the possibilities of being long term or not.

    Here's her list:

    1. You are like-minded.

    While you don't have to be exactly the same (let's face it, that would be boring), you do need to have congruent core morals and values. These shape expectations and direction and are essential ingredients of a resilient marriage. After all, how can two people travel together, and enjoy the journey, unless they are heading in the same
