The singer has reportedly been approached by the plus-sized winner of America's Next Top Model, Whitney Thompson, to be the spokesperson for her new dating website TheBigandtheBeautiful.com, which is "specifically designed for women with curves!"

Laughter yoga doesn't care if you can bend yourself into ridiculous shapes.
Laughter yoga only wants one thing.
Laughter yoga want you to be happy!
Here's what the founder of the American School of Laughter Yoga had to say:
"You may not lose fat, but you will lose the idea that you're fat. People come because it's the exercise they can do and it makes them feel good. It's the easiest form of yoga. They can't twist, they can't bend, but they can do this."
We disagree — we think pizza yoga is the easiest form. That's where you try to get into downward dog, realize you're breathing incorrectly, give up and order a pizza.
Laughter yoga is close though. It's a blend of yogic deep breathing, stretching, and laughter exercises that cultivate child-like playfulness!
It's not that new, either… it was developed 17 years ago in Mumbai, India. Now it has 600 clubs in 60 countries!
People who practice this believe the body cannot differentiate between pretend and genuine laughter:
"We fake it. We simulate to stimulate. We go through the motions of joy to create the chemistry of joy. The goal is not to work on muscle mass. It is to overcome critical thinking."
Plus, it builds community:
"Laughter is a means to an end. In hatha yoga (the yoga commonly taught in studios and health clubs), the focus is the breath. In laughter yoga, the focus is the "dristi," or gaze, of the other. It builds community. For those who want to teach, it takes a week. Truly, this is not rocket science."
Sounds fun to us!
But… what happens when you do it wrong?
Does it become crying yoga??
Is that kind any good? Ha!

Shame on you, Wells Fargo!!
As if fighting Stage 4 breast cancer wasn't difficult enough, the bank is trying to take Cindi Davis's home!
The North Carolina woman and her husband Kirk have been in and out of foreclosure since 2008 but much of that has to do with Cindi's ongoing medical battle against a deadly and relentless form of cancer!!
Sadly, healthcare isn't free. It isn't even cheap.
And while we're sure Cindi would love to pay her mortgage on time, foregoing treatment isn't exactly an option.
Looks like we found Hollywood's newest fresh-faced star!!
