Kristin Cavallari admitted in an interview with Fox News Thursday that she is against vaccinating her kids, not unlike the famously anti-vaccine Jenny McCarthy.

Speaking with Lisa Kennedy on Thursday, Cavallari made the surprising admission when Kennedy jokingly made reference to McCarthy’s controversial views.

“We didn’t vaccinate. I read too many books about autism and there’s studies… Now, one in 88 boys is autistic and that’s a scary statistic,” the star said.

Kristin Cavallari is currently expecting another boy with husband Jay Cutler.

The pregnant former Hills star further explained her choice the following morning and discussed the “harsh response” she’s received as a result of her comments.

“You know, it’s not something that I wanted to publicly come out and say… I was in an interview when this came up and it wasn’t what I was expecting," she said.

“Listen, to each their own,” she added. “I understand both sides of it."

"I’ve ready too many books about autism and there are scary statistics out there. It’s a personal choice, and, you know, if you’re really concerned ... get them vaccinated.”

A California judge has ordered Chris Brown to stay two more months in the Malibu rehab center where he is being treated for anger management issues.

Doctors have diagnosed the R&B singer with PTSD and bipolar disorder, conditions which they say could be deeply connected to his violent past.

They say he is making great progress while becoming less impulsive, though the process is ongoing. As such, the judge sent him back for at least two more months.

Although a report reviewed by the judge says the singer "is happy with the program," Brown seemed disappointed in court by the judge's decision.

His stay has been extended, though, whether he likes it or not.

"It is evident that [Brown] has responded well" to the treatment, a probation officer wrote to the court, with one major caveat considering his troubled history.

The positive turn "has occurred only recently," the report said, and the court should be cautious about releasing him; he should also stay on probation until November.

Chris Brown, 24, was placed on five years' probation in 2009 for his attack on his then-girlfriend Rihanna just hours before the Grammy Awards that year.

Kimberly and Craig Fugate of Jayess, Miss. expecting triplets this month. That's a handful to say the last, but then they received the surprise of a lifetime:

A surprise fourth daughter showed up on February 8!

"It's all been rather overwhelming when you think about how many changes will have to be made," Fugate says. "But I am just trying to take everything one day at a time."

"I know it will all work out."

The Fugates' daughter Katelyn, 10, is excited about the family growing from three to seven. "She is very excited and ready for them to come home," Kimberly says.

Because Kimberly Fugate had to be hospitalized at 24 weeks pregnant, it didn't leave a lot of time to get things ready for triplets, much less quadruplets.

Pregnant Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans may be in her second trimester now, but she's still dabbling in her beloved marijuana, and not even infrequently.

In shocking text messages obtained by Radar, allegedly verified to be from Evans, phone, the 22-year-old makes some fun plans to get high with a pal.

She was en route back to South Carolina when L.A. when a good idea struck.

“We can smoke and chill on a huge f--king blunt,” Jenelle Evans suggests.

Jenelle Evans Texts About Smoking Weed
Jenelle Evans is clearly still into the weed, despite being pregnant, as this new text confirms.

It looks like she scored some marijuana while on her trip to Tinseltown too, texting a friend that she wanted to smoke while driving down “the strip.”

“Let’s drive and smoke I don’t want to be here,” she wrote Sunday.

“Just down the strip and back or something I need to get away.”

According to her pal, Jenelle Evans has 5-6 bongs at home she uses to smoke weed and she continues to do so while pregnant "to ease her morning sickness."

That's an interesting self-diagnosis ... but is anybody buying it?

Amanda Bynes is making progress each and every day, and her mom Lynn as been praised by the judge overseeing her case for helping facilitate that.

Lynn Bynes became conservator during the troubled star's darkest hours after she started a fire in a neighbor's driveway and soaked her dog in gasoline.  

Amanda Bynes was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, spending three months receiving in-patient treatment for her obvious, severe mental issues.

She's been released into her parents' care, however, and apparently it's going well there, as evidenced by Lynn and Rick Bynes' appearance in court Tuesday.

Lynn was appointed conservator of Amanda's estate, making her the shot-caller when it comes to her health care, finances and overall well being.

Britney Spears' father, Jamie, was famously appointed to this same role following her meltdown in 2007-08, and the pop icon really turned things around.

Barbie's proportions are so unrealistic that if she were human she would not be able to walk upright.

That information comes from a PSA uploaded to Vimeo by Vianca Lugo that details the impossible body expectations toys are setting. 

The captivating video states, "If Barbie were a real woman, she's have to walk on all fours due to her proportions."

It goes on to say that the world-famous doll would be "7'2 and weight 101 pounds" and that she would die from "malnutrition."

It's no secret that Barbie isn't the best example of an attainable appearance. 

Last year, an artist did a rendering of Barbie with no makeup on, while another created a Barbie with the proportions of an average 19-year-old woman

Vianca Lugo's clip also reveals statistics about teenage steroid usage and diet prevalence. Watch it above and tell us what you think.

Just one week after a newborn baby boy was named one of the largest ever born, he's no longer even the largest on record in California in 2014.

Sosefina Tagalu of Daly City, Calif. delivered Sammisano Joshua Talai Otuhiva in August, but had no idea he might be the biggest ever in the state.

"Everyone was guessing before we weighed him," said Tagalu to The Huffington Post. "The nurses were guessing 10 or 11 and the doctor guessed 14."

The result: 16 pounds, 1.7 ounces.

The family did not tealize the birth may have been a record breaker until another California baby, Andrew Jacob Cervantez, made headlines in January.

At 15 pounds, 2 ounces almost a full pound lighter than baby Sammisano, newspapers hailed Cervantez as "the largest baby ever born in California."

So much for that!

The Harper's Bazaar's cover girl reveals that when the new year hit, she realized she had to pick herself up and find strength.

Gaga explained:

“I became very depressed at the end of 2013. I was exhausted fighting people off. I couldn’t even feel my own heartbeat. I was angry, cynical, and had this deep sadness like an anchor dragging everywhere I go. I just didn’t feel like fighting anymore. I didn’t feel like standing up for myself one more time—to one more person who lied to me."

But the superstar singer found hope. She added:
