A couple in Northern California waited several hours before reporting to the police that their 10-year old daughter had been shot on Friday.

Why? They believed she had simply suffered her very first period.

According the official police report, the girl was sleeping in her bed around 2 a.m. when a stray drive-by bullet struck her in the buttocks.

The girl awoke in pain and had blood in her underwear.

However, Sgt. Mark Ormsby says the victim's parents "had no reason to believe" the blood on her person was anything but period-related.

However, after the girl continued to complain, the couple investigated her bedroom and found bullet holes, eventually taking her to the hospital.

She remains there, in stable condition.

While quite an unusual situation, the girl's physician acknowledges the bullet wound was small and could easily have been mistaken for menstruation.

At this time, no arrests have been made in the shooting.

Troubled actress Amanda Bynes is suffering from severe mental illness and is unfit to stand trial, according to the attorney representing her in her DUI case.

The 27-year-old star was supposed to appear in court yesterday in the DUI case, following her arrest in West Hollywood, Calif., back in April 2012.

Amanda's lawyer, Rich Hutton, told the judge that his client "does not have the mental capacity" to even understand the nature of the proceedings.

In other words, she has no idea what she's being charged with, nor can she grasp the consequences. If you assume that's true, it's both amazing and sad.

The judge transferred the matter to the mental health court.

Rashad Johnson, who plays safety for the Arizona Cardinals, suffered an incredibly gnarly finger injury on the field against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Kevin Ware is not fazed. The rest of the world may be sick.

Johnson crushed his left middle finger during the game, but didn't realize how badly until he took off his glove and saw only part of his finger there.

Monday, Johnson himself tweeted a picture of the photo, saying, "Blessed to be able to still go out and do what I love this season. #thankful #trulyblessed"

He plans on playing this weekend, too, an amazing feat considering he lost the end of one of his digits 48 hours ago. We're not exaggerating, either.

If you can stomach it, follow the jump to see ...

Jon Hamm, whose perpetually-smoking Mad Men character Don Draper has brought him many an Emmy nod, has not been putting on his raspy voice.

The 42-year-old actor is set to undergo throat surgery next week after allegedly coughing up blood recently, according to multiple celebrity news reports.

His rep says that the "routine outpatient procedure to remove a single polyp from his throat." Earlier reports suggested multiple polyps in the region.

Once that abnormal tissue is removed, he should recover fully.

Meanwhile, a report in Life & Style claims the surgery news is not new for Hamm's Mad Men castmates, who have been discussing it in recent weeks.

In any case, we wish Jon a speedy and full recovery.

The U.S. House passed a short-term spending plan to continue funding government operations through mid-December but withhold funding for Obamacare.

In the never-ending battle over President Obama’s signature health-care law, the GOP fired the opening salvo in what promises to be a contentious 10 days.

If the measure, which would extend government operations by only three months, or an alternative bill is not passed, the government will shut down.

The legislation would fund federal agencies at an annual rate of over $986 billion but would also leave in place automatic spending cuts known as sequestration.

Those are set to take place in January.

Lea-Ann Ellison can squat, thrust and bench.

And she can also handle a torrent of online criticism.

The 35-year old has come under major fire for posting photos to Facebook of her lifting weights and conducting a CrossFit routine in the gym… while eight-and-half-months pregnant.

"8 months pregnant with baby number 3 and CrossFit has been my sanity," Ellison captioned the image.

"I have been CrossFitting for 2 1/2 years and ... strongly believe that pregnancy is not an illness, but a time to relish in your body's capabilities to kick ass."

Many Facebook users do not share this sentiment, however.

Photographer Ashlee Wells Jackson's "4th Trimester Bodies Project" is a photo series that embraces the changes brought to women’s bodies by motherhood.

The images are revealing in more ways than one.

Jackson hopes to shed light on cultural interpretations of female beauty and change women's expectations for themselves and those around them.

"This has been something that has felt a necessity in my mind for years now," she told The Huffington Post of the impetus behind the photo series.

"After coming out the other side of a very traumatic pregnancy and birth experience myself, I felt like it was finally time to make this project a reality."

Jackson explained further the personal passion that drove her:

Tammy Lynn Michaels, Melissa Etheridge‘s former partner, is offering more details about her health and financial situation than most people require.

Michaels went public with the claim that she's $500,000 in debt and has no health insurance but needed surgery because her insides were “exploding.”

This despite the fact that she receives $26,000 a month in spousal and child support from the rock star for raising the former couple's two children.

And the fact that she gets half of Etheridge’s music royalties, which at the time of their 2012 settlement was worth at least another $60,000 a month.

Her troubles, Tammy says, include “ovarian cysts that rupture, and an appendix that seems to be having fits.” She also has a souvenir if you're interested:

Reports are surfacing that Angelina Jolie wants another baby - so badly that after undergoing a double mastectomy, she is willing to risk her life to do so.

Following her double mastectomy in February, which she underwent after learning she’s a carrier for the faulty BRCA1 gene, she vowed to go even further.

Jolie said she would soon need another operation to remove her ovaries to further reduce her cancer risk, though it's not clear when she'll have that.

Family friend Marie Miles reveals that Angelina may be delaying that second surgery because she wants to have another baby with fiancé Brad Pitt.

Lamar Odom may be involved in some seriously dirty business these days, but Khloe Kardashian is clean and in the clear.

STD-wise, we mean.

She allegedly felt "physically sick to her stomach when Lamar admitted" having affairs a few months ago, especially when he added that he "didn’t use protection 100 percent of the time."

As a result, Kardashian had herself tested for a full range of sexually transmitted diseases.

"She is healthy, thankfully, but never thought this would happen to her," the source says.

"It’s bad enough that Lamar betrayed their marriage vows" by cheating on Khloe, "but to place her health in jeopardy is just disgusting.”

So far, Jennifer Richardson, Polina Polonsky and Sandy Schultz have all revealed themselves to have slept with Lamar during his marriage to Khloe.

It's unclear at this time with which woman Odom went raw.
