Julie Chen learned a valuable lesson from her family's dark history.

On Thursday's The Talk, the 46-year-old shared the terrible story of her great-grandmother and aunt being kidnapped and held for ransom.

Chen explained that since her grandfather was a wealthy businessman, it drew a "target on his back" years ago.

Apparently, a group of bandits once kidnapped his elderly mother and one of his teenage daughters, threatening to kill them if a large ransom wasn't paid.

Julie's grandfather managed to gather up all the money and gave it to his nephew to deliver for the exchange… except the family member double-crossed him and "disappeared into the night with the money."

Unfortunately, it was that very stab in the back that led to the murder of the CBS host's great-grandmother:

Prince William is so supportive!

The 34-year-old and wife Kate Middleton visited a school north of London on Friday to speak on the importance of children being "emotionally supported" in the education system.

However, when he arrived at Stewards Academy, the Prince actually had to give some physical support to a local dignitary who accidentally tripped and fell over while welcoming the royals!

Rachel Berry did not fall from Broadway gracefully…

We thought it was weird that 2016 didn't have a stand out Song of the Summer… but that's because we were apparently waiting for school to start to be blessed with this mess.

Your high school-aged kids probably thought they had it bad when they were forced to go back to school last week, but at least they aren't these students!

Unfortunately for a select room of overly polite teens, a teacher named Ms. Wittle is going viral after trying her best to connect to her kids during the first day of school with parodies of today's hottest artists.

Apparently, the teacher thought singing her syllabus to hits by Drake, Rihanna, Fifth Harmony, and even Carrie Underwood would make her hip… but it only made her students cringe. (Our money's on the 3D laser light show being what set it over-the-top.)

The best part?? The whole thing lasted for at least

Way to represent, Texas…

As you probably remember, North Carolina became the laughingstock of the United States earlier this year when it tried to implement a series of bigoted bathroom bills aimed at the transgender community.

While most Americans condemned N.C. for its treatment of its LGBT citizens, we're sad to say yet another state is currently discriminating against trans individuals.

Apparently, President Barack Obama issued a ruling back in May that would make it so every public school had to allow its students to use the bathroom and locker room that matched with their gender identity.

However, Texas Judge Reed O'Connor took it upon himself to block Obama's move late Sunday evening, and we're hearing 13 states have now banded together to sue the Education and Justice Departments over their trans-friendly law.

Basically, as it stands now, public schools

For a candid sit down with People, the brunette beauty explained:

"Right now, with how she's going and how successful she is and how much the parents love her and how the kids wish they had her life, I am truthfully like, 'Oh my God, she is going to experience more jealousy than I ever encountered when she's in high school'."

Eek. It actually sounds pretty stressful to be little Sophia. Nonetheless, the MTV celeb plans to squash the problem by potentially homeschooling her flesh-and-blood in the future. She continued:
