Speaking to ABC's local affiliate in Sacramento, Calif., Jeremy Meeks said that he learned of his sudden Internet popularity after chatting with his wife.

Yes, he's married. Sorry ladies.

"Well I appreciate [the attention]," Meeks, 30, said from behind a glass wall. "But I just want them to know that this is really not me, I'm not some kingpin."

Meeks' mugshot set the Internet ablaze after the Stockton, Calif., Police Department posted his picture to its official Facebook page on Wednesday.

Barbie is ready to embrace a modern, 21st Century career challenge as an entrepreneur, according to Mattel, the manufacturer of the iconic doll.

At Toy Fair this week, Mattel announced that Entrepreneur Barbie would be joining its roster in the brand's I Can Be career line as its Career of the Year.

Entrepreneur Barbie

Entrepreneur Barbie sports a sleek pink shift dress and carries a tiny tablet and smartphone. Her hair is styled in a poofy but professional style.

The iconic fashion doll has held more than 150 jobs during her half-century reign, many of them glass ceiling breakers, long before the 2014 iteration.

Still, with nearly 8.6 million female business owners these days, it’s not a stretch that the newest career for women is one that Barbie forges herself.

Whatever it may be, Barbie can do it, even if she's going through a midlife crisis of sorts. Doll sales peaked in the '90s, and dipped 13 percent last year alone.

Dov Charney was fired by American Apparel this week after a long run of the CEO's alleged bad behavior, not to mention plummeting stock prices.

The former CEO has made headlines both for championing of U.S. manufacturing and support of immigrant workers, but he's also gained notoriety.

His company's extremely sexual ads featuring young women are a non-stop source of controversy, as are several lawsuits he's attracted for sexual harassment.

Charney, 45, was unanimously fired Wednesday night because of an "ongoing investigation into alleged misconduct," according to a statement from the company.

The bottom line had plenty to do with it. Boards will put up with an enormous amount when there's results, which for a long time he produced. Not recently.

Nuns are not typically in the habit of filing lawsuits.

But they aren't typically forced to pray while surrounded by the remnants of a strip club either.

New advances have contributed mightily to the impressive evolution of prosthetics, which as of this spring includes vaginas, according to news reports.

A New York Magazine piece documents advancements in regenerative medicine over the years, including some in areas you would never see coming.

During an interview Wednesday, author Matthew Giles explained to the Huffington Post how exactly artificial vaginas are created, and it's ... interesting.

"You’re taking cells from external genitalia," he starts to explain.

"You’re creating ... this scaffolding that you place the cells on, and then you implant it to actually create the cavity, and the body takes to it," Giles said.

Astonishingly, after taking part in this, "Two of the four women that have undergone this procedure at Wake Forest [University] were able to menstruate."

That's great news. And speaking of artificial vaginas ...

Emergency room physicians often see patients who have stuck unusual things in unusual places. There's even a show called Sex Sent Me to the ER.

This one was a doozy even for that classy program, though, and threw Dr. Roger Goldenberg and his wife, Nurse Wendy Goldenberg, for a loop.

A woman came into the Kansas hospital where they work complaining about the pain in her nether regions caused by a vibrator she had deployed.

Wendy Goldenberg assumed that the woman's vibrator could only be stuck in the vagina or the anus. Well, it turns out that's not entirely accurate ...

"When [the patient] said, 'Neither one,' I knew there was something out of the ordinary," Wendy said of her patient. "She said, 'It's where I urinate.'"

"There is a little hole that's your urethra, and your urine comes out of it," she went on, recalling the strange exchange. "I said 'That's really impossible.'"

Was it, though?
