When flawless “Golden Girls” star Bea Arthur passed away, she left a bucket of money to the Ali Forney Center in New York City, a shelter for LGBTQ teenagers. Ali Forney was a drop-in day center for kids who were thrown out of their homes or ran away from home when their families would not accept their sexual orientation. It had food, showers, HIV testing, and mental health services, among other services.

When I heard that Kristin, the super-genetically blessed blonde girl on this cycle of “America’s Next Top Model,” was only 19, I felt relieved. At least she’s young enough that she still has time to shake that whole “I think I’m Regina George in ‘Mean Girls’” thing.

It’s been a hard week for many people on the East Coast and I think I know what will make us feel temporarily better: panda babies! Seven of them! In a crib!

The eldest baby panda’s name is Oreo, because he both looks like the tasty Nabisco cookie but “oreo” also means “beautiful” in Greek. This is the first pic that all seven pandas have taken together — I assume, in a rare moment of squee-dorable repose. [Yahoo]
