Lamar Odom will reportedly check into rehab "any day now," with the support of estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, in an attempt to salvage his marriage.

The troubled, 33-year-old basketball star has, according to a new report, paid for a three-month stint at a rehabilitation facility in Malibu, Calif., in full.

If this report is true, we'd be a little surprised, as Odom has been notoriously resistant to the idea before, when he was in the throes of crack addiction.

He's been opening up about his life and health lately too, and appears to be in better shape than he was previously. So why would he go now?

Perhaps he has been self-healing and had some success, but knows he needs additional treatment to win back the trust of Khloe and the Lakers?

The report says Kardashian was on the line to to support him when he made a call to the rehab facility, which certainly falls in line with that theory.

Jennifer Lawrence is gorgeous and flawless in new campaign photos for Dior, with her stunningly real looks more evident than ever in minimal makeup.

Featured in the fall-winter issue of Dior magazine, the 23-year-old can be seen in several black-and-white photos by photographer Mikael Jansson:

Jennifer Lawrence For Dior Photo

The Catching Fire actress models fitted menswear-inspired blazers, trousers and winter coats, showcasing her enviable figure and natural beauty.

Lawrence hasn't always been confident in her own skin. She told Harper's Bazaar UK that she was criticized for her weight when she was younger.

"It was just the kind of s--t that actresses go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn't lose a certain amount of weight," she shared.

The actress said she was shown Jennifer Lawrence pictures in which she was "basically naked" and "told to use them as motivation for my diet."

Safe to say she doesn't need to change in the least ...

Lamar Odom is just living, man. The troubled athlete made this mantra abundantly clear during an impromptu chat with a photographer in L.A. yesterday.

Instead of brushing off the paparazzo who approached him, the 33-year-old mused for several minutes about his life, health, relationships and career.

Lamar at Lunch

You don't see this too often, especially with a guy like Lamar, who's not only the subject of some insane stories lately, but is not exactly chatty by nature.

The celebrity gossip reporter was actually prepared to leave 3-4 times, but Odom kept talking cordially. Over the course of almost four minutes, he discussed:

  • His relationship with Khloe Kardashian ... who he wouldn't elaborate on, but made a gesture to by making point of showing of his wedding ring.
  • His prospects of returning to the NBA. "You gotta take it day by day," he said. "That's all you can do. Does being alive beat the alternative?"

President Barack Obama stopped to help a pregnant woman on the verge of fainting during a speech he gave on health care in Washington, D.C., today.

Nearly 30 minutes into his speech, under the hot sun, a pregnant female supporter standing behind the Commander-in-Chief began to feel lightheaded.

Fortunately for the mom-to-be, Obama became aware of what was going on over his shoulder and turned around to lend Karmel Allison some support.

NOTE: This type of assistance is not covered under the Affordable Care Act.

"I gotcha, you're OK," Obama said as he put his arm out to steady her, and went on to joke, "No, no. You're OK. This happens when I talk too long."

Quickly afterward, a White House aide came to escort Allison off the stage as the President continued his speech, which came to end shortly thereafter.

"Fit Mom" Maria Kang is speaking out in defense of her "What's Your Excuse" photo that caused such a stir online, claiming she was just trying to inspire.

The 32-year-old mother of three revealed that she never intended to bully or shame others with her fitness photo shoot, but rather share a love of exercise.

Yet after posting this photo to her Facebook page, Maria became the target of online critics who called her a “bully” who was calling out other women:

Maria Kang was shocked when her Facebook page blew up with commenters calling her “selfish," a “fat shamer” and worse after the ad went viral.

“I did not know I was going to ruffle this many feathers,” Maria said. “I knew that not everyone was going to like the photo but I wanted to inspire others.”

“Obviously these three little boys are symbols of time. I’m able to keep them a priority. Of course it’s not always my first priority but it’s one of my priorities."

As Sisqo once sang, let me see that thong! Thong, thong, thong, thong, thong. Well, easy there. Not only is that a bad song, the item may be bad for you.

Sometimes they're too tight, sometimes they rub the wrong way and sometimes they just don't feel all that clean. Experts suggest that they are not.

Thongs aren't necessarily bad, says Jill M. Rabin, Professor or Clinical Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women's Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

"If somebody's healthy, there aren't really any dangers," she says, however, "The issue is if you have a predisposition to getting infections, either urinary or vaginal."

In that case, "it may be harder to get rid of it if you're wearing a thong."

What are the features of thongs that put you at risk for health issues?

We all know Oreos are addictive, but a new study suggests that the cookies are as addicting as actual drugs ... at least in the way the brain responds to them.

The “pleasure center” of the brain, the nucleus accumbens, apparently gets just as activated in response to Oreos as it does to cocaine and morphine.

That could certainly have some pretty major public health implications if Oreos were as damaging to one's system as the aforementioned narcotics.

They're not, of course, and the study was only done in rats. However, the Connecticut College authors say it’s likely relevant to humans as well.

It could explain, they say why people have such a hard time resisting eating an entire sleeve of the cookies after they've set out just to eat one.

Depends who you ask. The picture sparked a comment war, with many of 12,000 (!) responses accusing her of fat-shaming, a charge Kang denies.

After she responded with what she calls a "non-apology," the debate escalated. How did she address some of the criticism she received? Read on ...

Girls star and creator Lena Dunham wants Instagram to "get down with the nipple." In other words, quit censoring/blocking breastfeeding photos.

Breastfeeding Instagram

She kept friend and new mom Sarah Sophie Flicker's breast covered up with a tasteful daisy to abide by Instagram's no nudity rules, but not by choice.

Dunham made it clear that she didn't like having to do it.

"My @sarahsophief feeding the brand new Dusty. I made the flower crown and she added the flower censor. Wish she didn't have to cuz the nipple is dope," she wrote.
