    Baby Newz

But it is unknown if the boy was adopted or if Debbie Rowe, who is the mother of his other two children, is the mom. Imagine Michael Jackson being one of the first things you ever see? Yikes!

    Injured

    Actor Jason Priestly, who starred in the 90s mega-hit Beverly Hills, 90210 with Tiffani Theissen, was involved in a serious race car accident which injured his spine, head and feet. The 32 year-old, crashed his car into a wall at a speed of nearly 180 mph (290 kmph) after hitting a slick patch on the track. Jason Priestly suffered a concussion, a broken nose, a broken spine (but not paralysis) and fractures in both feet. Jason has since had surgery, left the hospital and is undergoing physical therapy.

    Couple Newz

    After being spotted on more than one occasion looking quite cuddly, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are no longer keepin' their relationship a secret, according to Us Weekly. Jennifer Lopez and her husband Cris Judd separated in June of 2002. Ben and Jennifer got to know each other last winter while shooting the flick Gigli.

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.
