nene leakes secretly convicted felon past

NeNe Leakes has admitted in her autobiography, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, she was arrested when she was in her early 20s with a friend, but could the reality star be hiding something more?

Maybe the fact that she was a convicted felon?!

Is it just us, or has Andy Murray been super busy doing pretty much ANYTHING other than playing tennis lately?

Just a couple of months ago he was recovering from surgery on his back and then last month he was busy hanging out with Prince William, who awarded him with an OBE medal!

And somehow in the middle of all the madness, Andy found the time to write a book!

The tennis superstar made his way to Waterstones Piccadilly book store in London for a signing of his autobiographical work, Seventy-seven: My Road to Wimbledon Glory!

The book chronicles Andy's career through July 7th, 2013, when he became the first british man to win the Wimbledon title in 77 years!!

So what's next for Mr. Murray?? Word on the street is he's looking to take over Daniel Craig's James Bond duties in the next 007 film!

Ok, so we may have just made that last part up. But right now it looks like the sky is the limit for Andy!

Lauren Scruggs sure has come a long way since her horrible airplane accident last year.

Despite losing her left eye and left hand, the model slash blogger believes the entire experience has made her a better person.

Lauren also goes into detail about her recovery and of course, how her faith played a huge role.

Sounds like it's going to be quite the inspirational story!

Lauren's book will be available on November 15th for $10.
