What It's Like for 86-Year Old Woman Living Aboard Luxury Cruise Ship | Today's Show Prep | Scoop.it
An 86-year old Florida widow has spent nearly seven years living on a luxury cruise ship, paying $164,000 a year to do so. Lee Wachtstetter, known as "Mama Lee" aboard the Crystal Serenity ship, became a permanent resident of the seas after her husband died. "The day before my husband died of cancer in 1997, he told me, 'Don't stop cruising.' So here I am today living a stress-free, fairy-tale life," the former registered nurse told The Asbury Park Press. Wachtstetter is one of small group of people who actually are permanent residents on cruise ships.

Man Gets Ticket for Driving While Eating a Cheeseburger | Today's Show Prep | Scoop.it
A man was cited for allegedly distracted driving in Georgia when a police officer saw him eating a cheeseburger while behind the wheel, according to ABC affiliate WSB-TV. The police officer in question, whose name has not been released, cited Cobb County's distracted driver law, and the driver has a court date scheduled for Feb. 3, the Atlanta station said. I needed to tone it down,” driver Madison Turner told the station. Cobb County Court would not comment to WSB-TV because the case is ongoing, but Turner's attorney said he expects it to be overturned because many drivers, himself included, eat and drive.

Petition Calls for Victoria's Secret to Pull 'Perfect Body' Ads

Petition Calls for Victoria's Secret to Pull 'Perfect Body' Ads | Today's Show Prep | Scoop.it
Victoria’s Secret is sending mixed messages. The images causing controversy feature Angels Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, and Jasmine Tookes with the words “The Perfect Body” displayed across the poster.  While the ads look no different than others Victoria’s Secret has promoted throughout its history — tall women with chiseled abs, long limbs, and about 0 percent body fat — the juxtaposition of the very thin models with the words that seemingly state a specific and often unattainable standard for what a flawless figure should look like. This significance attached to the ads, though unintentional, has angered many and some are even asking for the brand to make significant changes to their policies.  First spotted in the U.K., many voiced their concerns on Twitter and after seeing the poster at a mall in Leeds, students Frances Black, Gabriella Kountourides, and Laura Ferris created a change.org petition.
Angela Stevens's insight:

I've been all sorts of shapes and sizes, super skinny, overweight, I've discovered that you can be fat and happy, skinny and miserable, and everything in between.  There is no such thing as a perfect body, and we humans are so much more than our bodies!  I've learned through it all to be content with who I am, and that includes my body.

Only 10% of Women Love Their Curly Hair

Only 10% of Women Love Their Curly Hair | Today's Show Prep | Scoop.it
According to Dove Hair's data, one in three women in the US has curly hair—but you’d never know it. It’s easy to forget that A-listers like Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Hudson, and Taylor Swift all had gorgeous curls—and then they abandoned them, favoring sleek strands on camera, on stage, and on the red carpet. I’ve always had really curly hair, literally from day one. I grew up with only the men in my family having similar curls and hair texture. Thankfully in recent years, there’s definitely been a curly hair movement as women ditch their straightening treatments in favor of their natural curls and trade in their flat irons for curling irons.

Boy Charged $25 for Skipping Friend’s Birthday Party. Did His Family Do Anything Wrong?

Boy Charged $25 for Skipping Friend’s Birthday Party. Did His Family Do Anything Wrong? | Today's Show Prep | Scoop.it
Photo by SWNS Group.  The mother of a boy whose classmate skipped his birthday party was so upset by the no-show that she’s charging the boy $25 for his absence. His parents, Derek Nash and Tanya Walsh, gave their son the choice of attending the party or hanging out with his grandparents and Alex choose the latter. Because the party occurred over the holiday break, Alex’s parents said they could not contact the birthday boy’s mother Julie Lawrence, so they didn’t cancel. Nash refused to pay the bill, Lawrence has threatened them with a lawsuit and — worst of all — Alex says his classmates are no longer speaking to him because he skipped the party.   “Unfortunately, the children are the ones who are going to ultimately pay for this,” Diane Gottsman, etiquette expert and owner of The Protocol School of Texas, tells Yahoo Parenting.
