+ Over the weekend, actress America Ferrera told People that there will, in fact, be a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 3. Speculation has been swirling for some time, but Ferrera officially confirmed it by saying that "it's actually very much in the works."
+ Everyone's favorite couple, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, just gave you more of a reason to love them. Yesterday, they teamed up to destroy known loudmouth Piers Morgan on Twitter. The takedown began after Morgan tweeted that he hoped his legacy wouldn't be "sugar coated" after his death. Legend and Teigen jumped in with this:
