According to some reports, the doctor was devastated by the character of Dr. Franff, played by Martin Short, in the hit Netflix sitcom Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Many believed the mocking caricature was based off him.

While the "Baron of Botox" was deeply hurt by the Tina Fey-created show, sources close to him claim it wasn't the ultimate reason why he decided to end his life. At the time of his death, he was reportedly suffering from depression.

On Monday, the 30 Rock actress' husband Jeff Richmond, who is an executive producer on the comedy, spoke out regarding the surgeon's passing to DailyMail.com.

Jamie Silvonek from Upper Macungie Township, Pennsylvania was reportedly fed up with having her mom interject about her BF Caleb G. Barnes, so apparently they conspired to murder her.

In a series of texts, Jamie allegedly planned the attack against her 54-year-old mother Cheryl, saying:

Nick Gordon Admits He Needs To Go To Rehab During His Dr. Phil Intervention Interview!

Your Reaction?

The first step is admitting you have a problem…

And that's exactly what Nick Gordon did on Wednesday's tell-all episode of Dr. Phil!

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend and his mother Michelle chatted with the talk show host about the scandal on Friday, but this is the first we're getting to see of it.

While part one of the interview-turned-intervention was strange, to say the least, part two at least gave Nick a chance to take some responsibility for his actions.

In fact, he even went as far as saying that he knows he needs to be rehabilitated!

We guess that's some sort of a silver lining, right?

Ch-ch-check out the continuation of Nick's bizarre behavior (above)!!!

It's amazing how sometimes all it takes is one person to bring about real change!

It also usually helps to start an online petition.

That's how some body positivity folks got Facebook to remove their "feeling fat" option from its status drop down box.

Catherine Weingarten and the group Endangered Bodies started campaigning online, sending out a petition through Change.org, trying to get Facebook to remove the option.

The petition read:

Ryan Phillippe Reveals His Depression

no title

Ryan Phillippe has played many tortured characters in his career, but it turns out that he can be one himself.

In a revealing interview for Elle posted last Friday, the 40-year-old opens up about his history of depression.

The Secrets And Lies star admits:

"You know, depression has been a huge obstacle for me ever since I was a child. As you get older I think it decreases some, but I'm just innately kind of a sad person. I'm empathetic, and I take on the feelings of others and transpose myself into the position of others."

However, the hunk acknowledges that his internal sadness contributes to his unique sense of humor:

"I'm way funnier than people know me to be. And it's a dark humor, like a gallows humor. I think that's where, if you do carry any of that sadness or depression, your humor does tend to be a little darker than most people. And the greatest comedians do—trust me. I know so many of them. And they're depressed and they're dark and they have this incredible gift of humor to offer others and also, probably, therapeutically themselves."

We applaud Ryan for opening up about such a personal issue, and we hope it encourages others to share their stories!

Filed under: FacebookMental Health

This is fantastic and necessary.

Facebook has begun to roll out an update to its servers with a tool that they hope will be a big suicide prevention aid.

The new tool will allow users to flag content that seems concerning to them and if the posts by a certain user seem like they may be thinking about harming themselves, Facebook will contact the concerned party with three options.

It will offer to allow them to contact the friend, contact another friend for help, or contact a suicide prevention hotline.

But this option will only happen after
