While Jenelle Evans' abortion made the majority of the headlines Monday night, her MTV co-star dropped an equally shocking (albeit very different) bombshell.

Teen Mom 2's Leah Messer Calvert ended the Season 5 premiere with the news that her 4-year-old girl Aliannah has a rare form of muscular dystrophy.

Fans know that Leah and her former husband Corey Simms have spent years seeking answers as to why Aliannah was so developmentally delayed.

Now she finally has them, but that doesn't make it any easier to take.

Ali's condition is degenerative, according to experts, and will likely worsen as the preschooler gets older, eventually confining the poor thing to a wheelchair.

Fortunately, Ali is happy and content at present, but still. Life has dealt Leah A LOT in recent years, and it's hard not to feel for her deeply after this.

LaKeisha Shurn has passed the #Giveit100 Challenge. With flying colors.

The San Francisco resident recently documented her journey over three-plus months in which she worked out everyday, not just with the goal of losing weight, but also of feeling better about herself.

"I have low self-esteem, I am going through depression, and I want to change all of that," Shurn says at the outset of the following video. "Next hundred days I will be on the journey of losing weight and finding myself."

The footage is set to Rihanna and should serve to inspire anyone experiencing similar issues.

Watch now as Shurn drops multiple sizes and gains more and more confidence each step of the way:

Earlier this month, we posted another cool video of a man who recorded one second of one day for one full year.

A hilarious parody of Cosmopolitan and other women's magazines, entitled "Average Women's Magazine Cover," is making the online rounds, and for good reason.

Created in 2010 by writer and illustrator Brendan McGinley, it resurfaced this week on Twitter, and if you've ever seen a real Cosmo cover, you'll appreciate it.

Right down to the font, the spoof nails the publication's layout and its obsession with splashing SEX on the cover as many times as humanly possible.

The only difference? The fine print on this one is much more honest:

Average Women's Magazine Cover

Features all-caps, bold headlines like "Overanalyzing" and "The Shame & Guilt Issue," McGinley takes a funny, not subtle swipe at actual publications.

NAKED. It may not apply at all, but they're required to use that word.

Turning to Cosmopolitan for advice on sex, relationships, body image and women's health (mental and physical)? A dubious proposition at best.

From its awesome Christina Hendricks subheading to teasers like "Lose 30 lbs Fast, Chop Off Your Leg!", it'll make you think twice about such magazines.

Check out some amusingly similar, legitimate covers below:

Sarah Massey, a 33-year-old Chicago woman, is making headlines for possessing world's biggest butts (at seven FEET wide), and she is proud of it.

Massey reportedly receives disability checks due to limited mobility, once cracked a toilet seat due to her girth, and struggles to fit in doors or use seatbelts.

And yet, she says she's happy with who she is: "I used to be ashamed, but now I hold my head high ... I want to show the world I am proud to be me."

Somewhere, Maria Kang is prepping her next Facebook tirade.

While it's commendable when a person is comfortable with whatever size they are, Sarah Massey doesn't seem like she's in particularly good shape.

Not that that's her fault whatsoever, if you hear her tell it.

"At school I was teased and called Dump Truck Butt by other kids, but the condition is hereditary, there's nothing I can do about it," Massey says.

"I carry this weight with me all the time, everywhere I go."

"It’s definitely not fake. Big booties are just in my blood."

Maria Kang, a.k.a. Hot Facebook Mom, is at it again. This time, she's releasing a 2014 calendar featuring "everyday" mothers and fitness fanatics just like her!

Kang made headlines with her viral "What's Your Excuse?" photo in October, then for criticizing what she believes is undue praise for "regular" women's bodies.

With her new calendar, she's back with reinforcements.

Maria Kang Calendar

Kang, who was briefly banned from Facebook this fall over her alleged fat (or fit) shaming, is doubling down on her oft-criticized "What's Your Excuse?" mantra.

Her new product is the "No Excuse Fit Mom Calendar."

It features 25 "real, everyday moms who transformed themselves through fitness," says Maria Kang, who graces the cover herself on the bottom left hand side.

Proceeds will go to the fitness-education nonprofit Fitness Without Borders and Maria's No Excuse Mom initiative, which offers 300 group-workout locations for U.S. moms.

Xiao Wei, of China's Hunan province, recently had his right hand grafted to his ankle for more than a month following an an accident that severed it.

He lost his hand during an accident on the job, but his co-workers were able to retrieve the hand, which doctors said they would be able to reattach.

Just not immediately. In order to keep the hand from dying before they could sew it back where it belongs, doctors grafted it to the man's ankle:

Why was such a bizarre, but effective maneuver yesterday?

"Besides ripping injuries, his arm was also flattened. We had to clear and treat his injuries before taking on the hand reattachment surgery," a doctor said.

Amazingly, doctors came through on their word, and were able to successfully reattach the hand, and he is expected to regain full use of the appendage.

Gisele Bundchen has again sparked debate and discussion over breastfeeding, this time by simply sitting there doing so in a white terry cloth robe.

While being made up and styled for a photo shoot, obviously.

The Brazilian beauty shared Tuesday this somewhat controversial photo of herself breastfeeding daughter Vivian as a beauty squad carried out its duties:

Gisele Bundchen Breastfeeding

"What would I do without this beauty squad after the 15 hours flying and only 3 hours of sleep #multitasking #gettingready," Tom Brady's wife captioned the photo.

Nursing her one-year-old as she gets her nails, makeup and hair done by three different people, Gisele also translated the caption into her native Portuguese.

That's taking multitasking to a new level.

First fitness blogger Caroline Berg Eriksen caught internet-flack for being too toned four days after giving birth and showing off her amazing physique.

Now she's under fire for the tiny baby bump she sported at nine months pregnant. 

Caroline Berg Eriksen's Tiny 9 Month Baby Bump

Yes, she really is nine months pregnant in that photo. Yes, that's probably what Kim Kardashian looked like at nine days pregnant.

No, that comment isn't meant to be disparaging to either mother.

There's nothing like home for the holidays, and for one troubled actress, after the events of the past year, it's been a long and difficult time coming.

Amanda Bynes has finished her inpatient treatment and is currently recovering at her parents' Los Angeles home, her mother's attorney confirms.

"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," says Tamar Arminak.

"Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."

The 27-year-old had been forcibly hospitalized and held involuntarily at UCLA Medical Center following a bizarre driveway-burning incident in July.

She was eventually moved to a Malibu rehab facility, but had not been free until recently, meaning she spent nearly half of this year receiving treatment.

Beyonce and Jay-Z have pledged to take on a plant-based vegan diet for the next three weeks, the rapper announced on his website, Life + Times.

"Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way," Jay wrote by way of an introduction.

As of December 3, "I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!" Bey's husband continued.

This began, he said, when a vegan friend "challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought..."

That friend was Marco Borges, an exercise physiologist and founder of 22 Days Nutrition, a vegan, organic, and gluten-free food and lifestyle company.
