Let's see who get's captured first!

USA Today
Reggie Love says his job as "body man" for Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign and at the White House required him to be constantly ready but never intrusive - "like a child in Victorian England, if that child were 6-foot-5 and carrying a Tide stain remover pen." 
Hollywood Life
Longtime ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas is opening up about her struggles with alcoholism and anxiety in her new memoir. The '20/20' host entered rehab in 2013, and is going in depth about the double life she sadly had to lead. Read on to learn more about this courageous woman.
2016 continues to be one of the strongest comeback years for incredible musicians we've seen in recent years and the good news keeps pouring in. Joining the comeback wave is none other than Bell Biv DeVoe, who today (September 12) released their first single in 15 years. While the group continues to ready their new album, they also are currently working on a three-part series for BET titled The New Edition Story.

LA Weekly
Diversity is everywhere you look these days - on television commercials, in pop music, in sports, in public universities. But Hollywood, an industry that calls a 73 percent minority county its home, is actually losing ground when it comes to hiring people of color. So says the 2016 Hollywood Diversity Report by UCLA's Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies.

Kam Miller
It's good to remember: Hollywood dreams do come true. Years ago, an ecstatic Carole Kirschner, newly hired as VP of development for Amblin Entertainment, called her mother from Steven Spielberg's screening room. With "Raiders of the Lost Ark" playing in the background, she said, "Mom, I've made it!"
