During her younger years, Kristy McNichol was arguably the hottest young actress in Hollywood. From her early days on the series Family, to Empty Nest, and a gazillion guest roles and TV movies in between. Then, she practically disappeared. Now, as she nears age 50, she is coming out publicly as a lesbian.

McNichol has been in a twenty year relationship with her partner Martie Allen. (the photo at left is the happy couple.) In her ‘coming out’ interview with People Magazine, she says she decided to open up to combat the bullying of gay and lesbian youth.

“She hopes that coming out can help kids who need support … She would like to help others who feel different,” her publicist said to PEOPLE.

Despite an incredibly successful childhood in show business, that success would ultimately turn into a troubled young adult life. She eventually came to blame her depression, panic and emotional breakdowns on a delayed reaction to her unusual life as a child star. “From the time I was very young,” she said back in 1989, “I was a professional, making money and assuming responsibilities. I didn’t live the life of a child. I was living the life of a 30-year-old.” She was eventually diagnosed with bipolar disorder and left show business.

Until now, McNichol frequently dodged questions about her sexual orientation. Our best to Kristy for her determination and courage in coming out to help others.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.
