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.”

It's official. The Internet is now officially property of Gen. Colin Powell.

The former U.S. Army General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff shared an incredible throwback Thursday selfie via Facebook on March 13.

Check out the would-be Secretary of State over a half century ago ...

Colin Powell Selfie

"Throwback Thursday - I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks," the now 76-year-old joked in his caption. "Eat your heart out Ellen!"

The black and white snapshot shows a (very!) handsome young Powell, who looks to be in his late teens or early '20s, taking a selfie in his room.

Can you imagine having to use a mirror to take a selfie, people? Decades before camera phones made it a thing, that took some creativity on his part.

Powell's caption is in reference to Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar selfie / Samsung product placement on March 2 that became the most re-tweeted item of all time.

Check out that and other classic celebrity selfies after the jump!

Seth Rogen loves weed. That's no secret.

But the identities of those celebs who've smoked pot with Seth Rogen were secret until he spilled the beans on Watch What Happens Live. Oops?

Just days after Lindsay Lohan's sex list hit the Internet, Seth Rogen decided to make a list of his own. His is better? Less bizarre? It's something.

Take a look at the stars who've smoked weed with Seth Rogen now:

Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd, according to Seth Rogen, has been his smoke buddy "lots of times." The two starred in Knocked Up together.

There's one omission in particular that stood out. Think you can guess who that is? During his interview with Bravo's Andy Cohen, Seth Rogen said:

"This is really depressing for me to say... I've never smoked weed with..."

With the still missing Malaysian Air Flight 370 and yesterday's plane crash in Philadelphia, this might not be the week to fly. 

But it's definitely the week to take a plane crash selfie or two, right? 

Plane crash selfies are apparently a thing now. Take a look at these, and then tell us, have we taken selfies too far?

Philadelphia Plane Crash Passenger Shares Selfie from Crash Site
Twitter user @han_horan snapped this selfie after a plane crashed in Philadelphia this week. She and the other 153 passengers were all unharmed.

When a U.S. Airways Flight 1702 from Philadelphia to Ft. Lauderdale crashed yesterday, Twitter user @han_horan snapped and shared a few photos with her followers, one of which was a selfie with the downed plane in the background.

All 154 passengers and 5 crew members were safe on @han_horan's flight, but does that make a difference in the context of selfies and sharing?

It's Pi Day, people! As in March 14? 3/14? Get it? Hello? Anyone?!

Mathematics major and book author Danica McKellar (a member of the 2014 Dancing with the Stars cast) is likely geeking out hard today. As should you.

Why? Because Pi, which is really 22/7 but is usually rounded to 3.14, is named after the ratio of a Euclidean circle’s circumference to its diameter.

It's kind of a big deal mathematical constant!

While we know Pi as 3.14, that's its approximate value. Pi has been calculated to a million-plus digits. It is LITERALLY irrational. And infinite(ly cool).

Here are some great ways to mark this very special Pi Day 2014:

  • Listen to the Pi rap (above), which someone obviously made, because it's the Internet ... and no, it wasn't Danica, though she'd appreciate it.
  • Wish everyone a happy Pi Day just to see if anyone understands gets it. That alone is probably enough to make this Friday a memorable one.
  • Go for a 5K run. 5K = 3.10 miles, which is pretty close to 3.14.
  • Put your lighters in the air at 1:59:26 p.m. (Pi = 3.1415926...)!
  • Celebrate Albert Einstein's birthday too. Sort of appropriate.
  • Practice doodling that cool ass symbol for Pi while on hold.
  • Bake an Apple Pi (or whip up a Pumpkin or Cherry or Strawberry pie recipe or whatever you're into). The wordplay is legendary, it tastes awesome, and pies are circular!!

Check out this epic gallery of Pi Day pies (because PIE!) below ...

The officials behind the South by Southwest music festival have released a statement regarding last night's fatal car crash in Austin.

As previously reported, a driver (believed to be drunk) swerved to avoid a DUI check point and barreled through a temporary barricade around 12:30 a.m., killing two attendees in the process and injuring 23 others.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the tragic accident that took place last night here in Austin,” the SXSW statement reads. “We appreciate and commend the first responders, as well as the city agencies who so quickly sprung into action."

Rapper Petey Pablo (no relation to The Bachelor pariah Juan Pablo) is a free man after doing two years of hard time for gun smuggling, TMZ reports.

Petey Pablo Mug Shot

The man behind "Raise Up" and "Freek-a-Leek" among other hip hop classics is out of prison ahead of schedule, and for the first time in a long awhile.

Back in 2010, he was arrested at Raleigh Durham Airport on September 11 (seriously) after police say he tried to take a stolen gun through airport security.

Petey Pablo was notoriously sentenced to 35 months behind bars at a federal prison for that offense, but was cut loose this week, four months early.

Like fellow free man Lil Boosie, he's focused on getting back to work. Pablo says he will return to hip-hop and has already hooked up with Timbaland.

We've seen a daughter slam her mother in an obituary before.

And we've seen a newspaper actually publish an obituary for Walter White.

But this is a first: A Delaware resident named Walter George Bruhl Jr. penned his very own obituary just days before he passed away at the age of 80 on Sunday.

Walter's son, Sam, posted the moving/humorous piece on Facebook and it opens with the following paragraph:

Arthur Chu watched his impressive 11-game Jeopardy win streak end Wednesday, as the #ChuChuTrain was finally derailed due to cynicism.

Seriously. That was the word that finally did him in.

Arthur Chu Photo

His official winnings were $298,200 ($297,200 in 11 wins and a $1,000 third-place prize last night) good enough for third all-time in the game show's history.

Only Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter have won more.

"So close to $300,000. That hurt. I wanted to make it. But I was $1,800 short. I can make $1,800 someplace else," said Chu, who appears on Good Morning America today.

"It's been an amazing run," he said, adding of his incredible stretch, "This last couple of months has been one of the coolest experiences of my life."

Chu actually only spent three days taping in November; his 11 wins were spaced out, TV-wise, for more than a month because of Jeopardy! tournaments.
