Merriam Webster adds new words.

Merriam-Webster is a master of shade, so it's no wonder they've added that particular word to the dictionary!

Besides "shade," a thousand new words have been added, including "Seussian," "binge-watch," "humblebrag," "side-eye," "truther," "ghost (as a verb)," and "prosopagnosia."

Scrabble May Add "Twerk" & "Selfie" To Its Players Dictionary! Find Out How You Can Nominate Your Own Word Of Choice HERE!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFacebook

These double words would definitely be a score!

Hasbro is letting people submit words they think should be added to its Scrabble's Players Dictionary via the comments section on its Hasbro Game Night Facebook page.

Their dictionary hasn't been updated in 9 years, and as you can imagine, relatively new words that have entered our lexicons (and our dance and photo skills) like "twerk" and "selfie" have already been suggested!

Fans can keep submitting choices until March 28th. At that point, finalists will be revealed on April 2nd, and then the first new Scrabble word in almost a decade will be announced on April 10th!

We wonder if "twerk" and "selfie" will make the final cut, or if their turn will be skipped!

Jeremy Sisto And Wife Expecting Baby Boy!

Filed under: It's A Boy!Pregnancy Talk

Big news for Jeremy Sisto and his wife Addie Lane.

The two are expecting their second child and Jeremy confirmed on The Talk that it's a boy!

Halleluyer!

The little guy, who is due in March, will join his big sister Charlie-Ballerina, 2 1/2.

Perhaps they'll use the dictionary again to name their second baby. And no, we're not kidding. Jeremy and Addie used the book to find their daughter's name. When Charlie was born, Jeremy said:

"I never really pictured myself having a family so it felt strange to name my child after anyone else alive. So my wife went through the dictionary, page by page, looking for words that weren’t normally names.

Ballerina, we liked it. But we saved her a little bit, we made it a hyphenated name … so she can go by Charlie … Chuck B. I’m hoping she goes for Chuck B."

Charlie-Ballerina is actually a pretty cute girl's name. We just can't wait to find out what they choose for their new little boy.
