There's an entire industry devoted to stress relief, but for Ke$ha, some quality time with animal friends is all it takes to get zen. On last night's "My Crazy Beautiful Life," the pop star's massive two-plus year tour finally came to an end, and as the enormity of it all hit her, she decided to head into the wild to clear her head. With swimming among sharks and rehabilitating orphan lions on the agenda, the nature spree was about as good as chapter-closing gets. "I had to go take a couple weeks off for myself, or else my brain was going to explode," Ke$ha says in a clip from the episode below. "It really made me reconnect with myself."
For the glitter girl, scheduling a small hiatus was completely necessary before jumping into the studio to record her next album, especially since it had a positive effect on her creativity: During Ke$ha's downtime from the madness of Hollywood, she came up with "Warrior" as the title for her next effort, and it certainly caught on with the masses.
Check out the video for a glimpse of Ke$ha grabbing some "me" time in the Galapagos Islands, South Africa and wherever else she could find a non-human creature, and hear more about her love of wild animals in her recent "Nikki & Sara LIVE" interview!
It's a commonly held belief that a fresh start with a new crew could be a social cure-all for any floundering teen, and on tonight's "Awkward," Jenna got a chance to test that theory out. Palos Hills' resident pariah had been living in harmony with her peers for some time, but Halloween brought the devils out of the woodwork, and they assured her she'd never be good enough for BMOC Matty McKibben. The haterade made Jenna's fresh confidence devolve into her old dejected demeanor, until a sudden impulse to crash Collin's girlfriend's bash became the ticket out of her funk.
To avoid judgement at the PHHS party, Jenna roped Matty, Tamara, Jake and Sadie into accompanying her to a house full of strangers, and once inside, J discovered she actually fit in way better with Collin's more sophisticated crowd. Collin's girlfriend, Angelique, even suggested that Jenna consider ditching Matty for someone more worldly!
Put your dukes up! Baby Lopez practices its fighting stance in the womb.
Mario Lopez's second child has been steadily baking in wife Courtney Mazza's oven, but we are still months away from the TV personality and social media master's inevitable status update announcing the bundle of joy's arrival. Until then, we can at least share in the proud papa's journey as he tweets about the baby's progress and shares sonograms with his over 700,000 followers.
"First pic of baby Lopez #2... Thank you @CourtneyMLopez ," Mario posted with the photo above before pondering the baby's gender through a hashtag. Whether boy or girl, one thing's for sure: This kid's gonna be a fighter! Just look at little Lopez flexing for the camera...sorta like its pop did back in the day as wrestling champ A.C. Slater! Let's hope he or she inherits Mario's dimples, too.

Jenni Farley, as Nikki, flirts with her boss and occasional fling, Cutter, on "One Life to Live."
When we first heard JWOWW's acting debut would involve the portrayal of a flirty drink-slinger, we had all the confidence in the world our "Jersey" girl would do us proud. And she did precisely that this morning on "One Life to Live," bringing the role of Shelter bartender Nikki to life in a way that would make any employee on the Karma payroll proud. Pay attention, Hollywood up-and-comers: Josh Kelly's acting tips are clearly golden.
In the full episode below, the more-hot-chick-than-actual-bartender Nikki struggles to impress with her signature cocktail, which -- in defense of the man who grimaces after a sip -- sounds absolutely disgusting (scotch, simple syrup and Red Bull mixed together is essentially an ipecac alternative). Nikki tells her boss, Cutter, who's played by Kelly, that she's never tasted her own cocktails, as she's more of a "beer person," but as long as she's able to keep patrons entertained with her seductive cherry-eating, we have a feeling she won't struggle much to rack up tips.
When Eric and Jeff Rosenthal agreed to make a guest appearance on "Most Dope," the brothers assumed they'd be rubbing elbows with Mac Miller himself. Instead, they got stuck interviewing Mac's fur coat clad alter ego, Larry Lovestein. Persistence pays off, though, and recently, the duo managed to track down the actual Mac and pick his brain for their show.
In a clip from ItsTheReal's web series, "Rap Lines," Eric and Jeff ask Mac the questions all young hip-hop fans are dying to know, like if it's okay to drop out of school to rap and if you can accurately judge a girl by her ringtone. All appears to be going smoothly, until one fan's question almost knocks the entire interview off-kilter. "My parents say I can do anything I want in life, so I want to be Mrs. Mac Miller," Eric begins, reading "Sarah" from Florida's question. "My parents are totally on board. How can we make this happen? P.S. I'm 14 and I love 'Thrift Shop.'" And the survey says...wrong rapper! "Yeah, I think she's thinking of Macklemore Miller," Eric says. "That's awesome," Mac responds, laughing off the mix-up. Uh oh, we think 14-year-old Sarah just inspired another split personality!

Paola Guadagnino will have to bust out her finest china soon, if her son, Vinny, manages to snag his ideal guest. In this week's "Dear Vinny" video, "The Show with Vinny" frontman reveals that, if he had his pick of folks to interview, he'd choose none other than the POTUS, FLOTUS and SMOTUS (that's Sasha and Malia of the United States, obviously). Hey, after Lil Wayne takes a leak in your bathroom, anything is possible.
"Once you come in to an Italian's home, everyone is the same," Vin says, pleading his case for a presidential visit. And should Barack & Co. wind up at Vin's doorstep, they'll probably be treated to his favorite Paola specialty, which -- believe it or not -- includes not a trace of prosciutto, pasta or marinara. Evidently, plain ol' mashed potatoes are Mrs. Guadagnino's forte, but we bet she sprinkles in a little Parmesan for good measure.
Check out the full fan Q&A to also find out how hosting has helped mitigate Vin's anxiety, keep leaving your questions on "The Show with Vinny" Facebook page and check back each week to see if your entries make the cut!
Danity Kane give a consummate New York performance after forming in 2005.
If NKOTB and BSB can resurrect their boy band glory days, there's no good reason former chart-toppers Danity Kane can't follow suit. The group that formed after an intense "Making the Band" battle in 2005 had vanished by 2009, but TMZ recently spotted the girls hanging out together in Los Angeles. Could this be the makings of a DK reunion? Maybe...but if it is true, it sounds like they're doing things on their own terms this time.
In the video below, a TMZ camera man asks the girls if creator Diddy has anything to do with their parley, and the reliably outspoken Aubrey O'Day simply replies, "Who's that?" Yikes! Guess there's still some bad blood between those two. And by the looks of the lunch date, any future project might proceed without D. Woods, as she's nowhere to be found. DK as a foursome? It wouldn't be the first time a girl grouplost one member.
+ What do you think about a possible Danity Kane reunion? Check out the TMZ clip, watch the "Damaged" video for old time's sake and be sure to check out Remote Control's exclusive interview with DK member Shannon Bex!
Motorcycles, ATVs, race cars...these types of wheels top the list of dangerous modes of transportation, and no matter your age or expertise, you're taking a risk by riding one. But tricycles? Those are for kids!
As you know, the "Nitro Circus Live" crew is always up for a new kind of thrill, and as it turns out, riding down a steep, narrow ramp at lightning speed using any size wheelswill make you s**t your pants within seconds. Case and point: In this sneak peek of the next episode, Mike Porra, the typically tame (read: NOT a professional athlete) tour promoter, ditches his paperwork to hop on a trike in an attempt to play like the big boys on the Giganta Ramp.
"I'm trying to keep it a secret in case I p**sy out," Porra admits in the clip below. However, producer Jeremy Rowle says the secret's out, and the "Nitro" pros are keeping a close eye on him. "When you're constantly asking people to risk their lives, at some point you have to get the respect of others," he says. "And the only way that you can get that, is if you go and do something stupid yourself." Time to put up or shut up, Mike!
Three of the "Teen Mom 2" cast members' lives have changed drastically over the last few years, yet Chelsea often seems to be stuck in the same old patterns that landed her "16 & Pregnant" in the first place. As recently as the Season 4 premiere, she admitted to having unprotected sex, and on last night's reunion conclusion, Chelsea pointed out to Dr. Drew that she's the only one of the girls who hasn't moved on romantically. Then again, how could she when she's STILL HOOKING UP WITH HER EX!?
When Adam, who's currently dating someone other than Chelsea, joined his child's mother on stage, Chelsea dropped a major truth bomb. "We've been hooking up for the last, like, month or so," she told Dr. Drew after giving Adam a death-stare for labeling their relationship platonic. Adam responded with a casual "whoops," which solidified his status in the doghouse, but it remains to be seen if his behavior will deter Chelsea from sleeping with him again.
As always, we're pulling for Chelsea to finally break free from her ex's grip and leave him in the dust.
When it rains, it pours, and nobody is more familiar with that adage than Kaylin of "World Of Jenks." The aspiring fashion designer has longed to show her collection in New York since Episode 1, and tonight, when she earned a spot to present five looks at a designer showcase, disaster struck once again for the two-time cancer survivor.
A few days prior to the big event, Kaylin hired a sample-maker to help lighten the monstrous load of completing her collection. However, when it came time to fit the models, the seamstress turned up empty handed, sending Kaylin back to square one with virtually no time to finish her garments. Thankfully, she and Jenks were able to assemble a team to help complete the looks before the show, but -- despite their huge strides -- the work was nowhere near done. Kaylin looked ready to break down at the end of tonight's episode, but will she be able to wipe away her tears and pull it all together?
