Walking down the catwalk must be pretty boring for models who have to do it all the time. You walk one direction, you walk the other, you change clothes, and you repeat ad infinitum. At the Friday, September 7, "Disney Villains x The Blonds" show at New York Fashion Week, however, dancer Leiomy Maldonado changed the game with one of the fiercest "walks" the modeling world has ever seen.




What began as a fairly simple strut quickly turned into a dip that shocked and excited the crowd. On the way back up the runway, Maldonado continued to dance, twirling her hair as the audience showered her with applause.

The show also featured Paris Hilton and beauty YouTuber Patrick Starrr appearing as very stylish Disney Villains!


You may recognize Maldonado from Nike's #BeTrue campaign, in which she became the second transgender model to star in the brand's ads. (The first was Chris Mosier, also the first transgender athlete to make a US National team.)


You may have also seen Maldonado as Florida Ferocity on Pose, Ryan Murphy's new show, which is notable for featuring the largest number of trans actors of any show on television.




Twitter showered Maldonado with kudos for her amazing catwalk performance!








Amazing work, Leiomy. May the vogueing never end!

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
