Brain-Eating Amoeba Attacks Little Girl After Swim!

Filed under: Sad SadHealthScary!

Swimming in lakes and ponds and stuff is just a part of a fab childhood!

There's nothing better than nature, a picnic, some swimming and fun! If you can ignore what might be IN the lake — like fish and gross things — you can have a great time!

Brain-eating amoebas are trying to RUIN that for our youth! Boo!

A 12 year old little girl named Kali Hardig contracted a brain-eating amoeba after swimming in a lake, and ended up with a rare meningitis!

Now she's fighting for her life.

The disease kills 99% of people who contract it, so we hope that the Arkansas hospital she's in is up for helping her win the very steep hill battle she's waging!

Check out the video (above) for more details, and know that little Kali needs all the positive support and vibes she can get! If Aimee Copeland can beat flesh-eating bacteria (which is different, but still horrible, lake-borne problem), we have hope for Kali yet!

Hillary Clinton Rocks A Brand New Swishy 'Do In Arkansas!

Filed under: PolitikHillary ClintonHairstyles

Hillary Clinton debuts a fabby new hairdo in Arkansas!

Three cheers for swishy, bouncy (and yet totally profesh) hair!

Hillary Clinton looked fantastic during a visit to a children's library and learning center, which will be named after her, in Little Rock, Arkansas on Monday.

The former First Lady and Secretary of State's mane has possibly never looked better — it's got volume and structure, and those highlights are flawless!

Granted, the audience of kids was probably more fascinated by her reading of The Very Hungry Caterpillar rather than her fabby locks, but when they're older and looking back on pictures from this momentous day, they will appreciate it.

Oh, and nice suit, Hil! Love that topstitching!

Check out some of Mrs. Clinton's past 'dos (below)!

P.S. Hillary for President in 2016!

Tim Tebow Lands His Biggest Magazine Cover Yet: Arkansas Monthly!

Filed under: ZportzFootballTim Tebow

LOLz!

We have NOTHING against Arkansas Monthly — for all we know, they could be the finest magazine in all of Arkansas! We do find it a little weird that Tim Tebow is on the cover, though!

Mainly, Tim has nothing to do with Arkansas… except that he's in Northwest Arkansas this month for the Southwest Elite Showcase. Must be a slow news month for the publication!

Whatever! At least he's still pretty handsome AND he has a job!

Ha!

Johnny Depp Speaks With West Memphis Three's Damien Echols At TIFF! Bestie Alert!

johnny depp damien echols west memphis three tiff

Isn't this friendship amazing??

Johnny Depp has been one of the West Memphis Three's most passionate supporters.

Throughout their time spent in jail and beyond, Johnny has lent his SEKSI platform to raise awareness on their story — one that many believe to be a great example of a flawed justice system.

But despite the horrors Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley faced during their 18 years behind bars, they're able to enjoy their freedom.

And Damien credits Johnny in some of that, saying:
