It’s difficult to get Republicans and Democrats to agree on anything these days.

But unhappy students across the country have banded together to Tweet pictures of their unappetizing cafeteria food, blaming the First Lady for such disgustingly healthy fare.

The Thanksgiving-themed lunches seen here must comply with the food regulations implemented by the USDA (a limit on calories, fat, sugar and sodium) and supported by Michelle Obama, who has taken on the sweeping issue of childhood obesity.

Hence the hashtag "#ThanksMichelleObama" that accompanies these complaints/photos.

In July, Obama vowed to “fight until the bitter end to make sure that every kid in this country continues to have the best nutrition that they can have."

She didn't direct folks to healthy recipes on Food Fanatic for some reason, but she did get behind an initiative to change the ingredients used in cafeterias around the nation.

Still, we wonder whether or not Obama realized she'd be fighting the kids themselves.

As you've likely heard, Kate Middleton is suffering from severe morning sickness as the result of a condition known as Hyperemisis Gravidarum.

The illness has forced Kate to cancel some public appearances, often at the last minute. Fortunately, she's said to be feeling better these days, and she's been able to attend royal functions such as yesterday's Remembrance Sunday event.

However, some royal sources have suggested that while Kate's condition seems to be improving, there remains a strong likelihood that she'll have to pull out of any of the events that have been scheduled between now and the end of her pregnancy.

If that should be the case, Prince William may find himself in the position of doing the royal smile-and-wave on his own, whether he likes it or not.

As with her first pregnancy, Kate Middleton is suffering from extreme morning sickness as the result of a condition known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

Kate has canceled several public appearances as a result of her illness and only just recently returned to public life.

Kate Middleton Returns to Public Life
Kate Middleton made her first public appearance in over two months today. The Duchess helped welcome the president of Singapore to Buckingham Palace.

Her recent appearance at an event to honor the President of Singapore was taken by many royal watchers as a sign that Kate's health is on the upswing.

Now it seems, however, that Kate may have simply caved in to pressure from the Queen to cease her bellyaching and get back to work.

Life & Style reports this week that Queen Elizabeth II "bullied" Kate into resuming her royal duties:

Yesterday, we learned that Amanda Bynes psychiatric hold was extended for by 30 days, with mental health professionals reserving the right to extend the hold even longer if need be.

That may now prove unnecessary, however, as Amanda's parents have reportedly been awarded a conservatorship, which gives them full legal control over the life and decisions of their 28-year-old daughter.

Amanda has now been in a psychiatric care facility against her will for nearly three weeks. She was conned into entering the facility by her parents, with the aid of former Britney Spears manager Sam Lufti.

Sources say Bynes' parents have been receiving legal advice from Lufti, and the controversial figure may have helped them finally win the conservatorship they've been working toward for weeks.

It's been a difficult couple of months for Khloe Kardashian.

In September, Khloe broke up with French Montana after dating for 8-9 months, reportedly because the rapper cheated on her "dozens" of times.

Then, earlier this week, Khloe attempted to divorce Lamar Odom, but was unable to locate her estranged ex in order to pull the legal trigger.

Add in her brother Rob's issues and needless to say, Khloe's under some stress these days, and friends say she's taking it out on her body.

"Food has become her enemy,"  a source close to Khloe tells Star magazine.

"She's constantly at the gym and eats solids only twice a week."

"She barely eats, but she's drinking almost every night. Champagne, vodka, tequila - it doesn't matter what it is, she downs it. She doesn't seem to realize she's not doing her body any favors."

"Khloe is at rock bottom."

Tori Spelling was rushed to an LA hospital over the weekend after displaying a wide array of worrisome symptoms.

Sources say Spelling was coughing uncontrollably and having difficulty breathing. She was reportedly running a high fever which caused hospital staff to quarantine the reality star.

As troubling as all that sounds, there are two important facts that make Tori's make condition somewhat less dire:

1. Despite rumors to the contrary Tori is not pregnant, and 2. Tori does not have Ebola, which is something that her publicist actually felt the need to mention. 

Obviously, Tori is very sick, but insiders say it's most likely a bad case of the flu. She's expected to make a full recovery within the next week, and she was quarantined merely out of an "abundance of caution."

Though she's reportedly improving, at the moment, it's been a slow recovery as Kate is still staying with her parents and planning her return to public life.

In the meantime, the Duchess is laid up and extremely limited in her activities. And if the latest reports from the Middletons' home in Bucklebury are any indication, she may be going a bit stir-crazy.

Ever since they went public with the news that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second baby, the royal family has cautioned that the Duchess may not be making many public appearances during for next several months, as doctors anticipated complications.

The Smiling Kate Middleton

Kate suffered from severe morning sickness during her first pregnancy, and now it looks as though the condition has returned and possibly worsened.

Yesterday, Kate was scheduled to attend the opening of a new art studio at a London primary school, but she was forced to cancel at the last minute due to the sudden onset of symptoms from hyperemesis gravidarum.

Responding to rumors that the illness is worse than it was during Kate's first pregnancy, a spokesperson for the royal family issued a statement saying that the sickness is "similar in severity to last time."

On tonight's episode of VH1's Couples Therapy, the housemates will learn that cast member and former Big Brother champion Dick Donato is HIV positive.

Donato says that after keeping his diagnosis a secret for three years, he's decided to go public so that he might use his fame to bring attention to the crippling illness and the difficulty that many patients have with affording treatment.

Donato appeared on TMZ Live today, where he opened up to the site about the hardship of paying for medication that keeps him alive:

"The drugs are extremely expensive," Donato tells Harvey Levin.

"This puts a heroin or cocaine addict to shame. It's like a 110, or 130 dollars a pill. And you cannot miss one dose ... that's when you develop full-blown AIDS, and there is no cure for that."

Donato goes on to say that he was "wiped out" by the cost of treatment and only once he was completely broke was he able to qualify for Medicaid.

(The red-haired reality star specifies that he was diagnosed before the availability of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.)
