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.

Some pro-choice groups are reportedly not happy about a new set of subway advertisements by pro-life groups that they say are misleading to teens.

Several pro-choice advocates are speaking out against the New York City transportation ads from EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers, a pro-life group.

The ads are simple and offer free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and counseling, but it’s what they don’t say that is causing some issues and controversy.

Take a look below to see what the issue is:

Critics say the ads are misleading to young women because there is no direct access to health care provided, while opinions are presented as fact.

Andrea Miller, Executive Director of NARAL, told PIX11 that “Regardless of your views on this issue ... there should be truth in advertising here.”

Marianne Keith, 52, went to the hospital with severe abdominal pain earlier this year, and her physician recommended she have a transvaginal ultrasound.

What ensued, Keith says, was nothing she could've predicted - an hour of brutal physical abuse that left her with internal injuries and recurring nightmares.

"It felt like I was being raped," she said in an interview.

"Like somebody was intentionally hurting me."

Probe

Keith has therefore sued the Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Ill., where she underwent the procedure, for medical battery.

She claims in the lawsuit that the technician "repeatedly jammed the probe in to various internal portions of [her] vagina, including her cervix," for an hour.

The Bachelor star Gia Allemand, who took her own life last month, often suffered major mood swings that her mother believes were caused by one major factor:

Her menstrual cycle.

Gia Allemand, Mom

A grieving Donna Micheletti told Dr. Phil Tuesday that daughter Gia's intense PMS clouded her thinking and likely contributed to her suicide attempt.

"She was not depressed. Sometimes, when it was that time of the month, she would get insecure and go to a dark spot, and feel like nobody cared," Micheletti said.

"She just snowballed."

Donna, who lives in New York, she spoke to her in New Orleans the night of Gia Allemand's suicide attempt and booked her a flight to visit the next day.

The move comes on the eve of the biggest fight of the year for his promotion company Saturday night, when Floyd Mayweather Jr. takes on Canelo Alvarez.

"I will not be at the fight this Saturday to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility," De La Hoya said Tuesday.

The fighter added that "I explained this to Canelo and he understood that my health and long term recovery from my disease must come first."

The 40-year-old Oscar De La Hoya first admitted two years ago that he was an alcoholic and drug user and had been in treatment for those problems.
