In January of 2000, Holly Robinson Peete got the news that her son had autism — a moment that would never leave her mind. She looked for a silver lining in the diagnosis, regardless of the fact that the doctor had zero bed-side manner. He just listed the things RJ would 'never' do: talk, make friends, mainstream in school, participate in organized sports, etc., before laid something far more hurtful on her. He said she would NEVER hear him say the words 'I love you' unprompted.
All of this at just 3 years old.
Now, RJ is much older. He even checked ALL of those things off his list, and more, exceeding so many expectations… and Holly is now writing about the experience! Here's a bit of what she has to say:

Now that Chris Brown's slick music video for Fine China — the first single off of his upcoming album X — is out, the controversial artist has been making the promotional rounds and surprisingly has had a TON to say about his personal life…
Specifically concerning his tempestuous relationship with Rihanna!
Remember when Breezy released a video confession back in October explaining that while he loves Karrueche, his heart belongs to Rihanna?!
Well, in a recent radio interview, Chris divulged that it was extremely "difficult" telling his former girlfriend Karrueche (along with the rest of the world) that she was NOT the love of his life, AND talked about his reasons for posting the explosive confession in the first place!
Take a good, long listen to Brown opening up about his Rihanna-Karrueche love sandwich …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Kim Kardashian is not having the easiest pregnancy.
Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian have been through eight pregnancies between them, so having them in her corner definitely helps.
But the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star says it's also been somewhat misleading!

If you put a little effort into it, you can grow pot!
If you don't know what you're doing at all, chances are you're gonna fail! This is because marijuana is actually pretty hard to grow — but that doesn't mean it can't be learned just like any other skill.
In Washington and Colorado, it's legal to grow a certain amount for personal use — but State-sanctioned gardening coaches (who help people learn to cultivate tomatoes or zucchini) have been ordered not to show people how to grow marijuana! It sounds like an 'idiot' curve… one that keeps the amount of pot down. LOLz!
The problem is that

These rumors that Britney Spears and Jason Trawick are heading closer and closer to Splitsville are gaining more and more traction, and making us positively DEVASTATED in its wake!
Reports that surfaced yesterday indicated that the pop star's agent-turned-fiance has apparently told her family, friends, and management team that he plans on officially calling off their engagement after the X Factor finale this week while the couple vacation for the holidays together, but now, we're hearing that while the break-up isn't CERTAIN…this last trip is definitely make-it-or-break-it for them!
Of course, the matters of the heart are only COMPLICATED by the fact they've essentially intermingled their professional lives into one, and are struggling to figure out how to potentially reconcile that if they go their separate ways!

Nicollette Sheriden may have been at the center of most of the drama behind-the-scenes of Desperate Housewives this year, but as the series wraps at the end of the week, it's clear that the actress still fared better in the eyes of her former co-stars than one of their own - Teri Hatcher!
According to sources who were present at the show's wrap party, Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, and Vanessa Williams all presented the crew with parting gift of luggage, as a thank you for all of their hard work, each of which holding a note:
