Mindy’s friends and peers in the music industry came together in Nashville on Mar. 6 to celebrate the life of the friend they lost too soon. So sad.
Mindy McCready‘s family laid the troubled country singer to rest in her hometown of Fort Myers, FL on Feb. 26, but her music industry peers wanted an opportunity of their own to pay their respects to the friend they’ve lost. On Mar. 6, they gathered at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, TN to celebrate Mindy’s life through music.
At the memorial, open to Mindy’s family, close friends and peers in the industry, the country singer’s friends Bekka Bramlett, Lorrie Morgan and Bryan White were scheduled to perform.
Mindy McCready’s Florida Funeral
While the memorial for the late singer was closed to those who knew her personally, her hometown funeral at the Cross Roads Baptist Church was open to fans. In a statement released to USA Today, Mindy’s mother Gayle Ingle said, “Mindy’s life was public and the family welcomes friends and fans to join them in a celebration of Mindy’s life.”
Attendees began gathering at the church at 2:00pm. As they filed in, a large screen that had been erected in the church showed pictures of Mindy in happier times, while country music played in the background, reports NewsPress.com.
During the funeral, Gayle said some touching words about her daughter, and how Mindy will always be her "little girl in a car-seat singing into a hairbrush." She added that she has been healed in Heaven after a "painful struggle."
"I cannot imagine how we go on from here." Gayle said, as Mindy's song "Ten Thousand Angels" played.
Mindy’s Friends Not Surprised By Her Death
Mindy passed away on Feb. 17 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. As HollywoodLife.com previously exclusively reported, friends of the singer were, sadly, not too surprised by the news of her passing. "She has had substance problems for so long and tragedy followed her through the years that we were unfortunately waiting to hear that she passed away through an accidental overdose or something even worse, which is exactly what happened," one friend told us. "You can expect it in ways, but its still devastating when now it actually happened."
Our thoughts remain with Mindy’s family and friends, especially her two young sons, during their time of mourning.
Crystal Kelly refused to abort an unborn baby she was carrying for a couple once the ultrasound revealed a series of disabilities. The surrogate fled to Michigan where she was legally acknowledged as the mother to save the baby's life.
Crystal Kelly, 29, was paid $22,000 to have a baby for a Connecticut couple, but was horrified when the baby girl’s parents instructed Crystal to get an abortion after disabilities in the child were revealed in the ultrasound. The biological parents to offered Crystal $10,000 to abort the baby. She asked for $15,000, but the parents refused.
The baby's parents aggressively requested custody of the child with intentions of placing her in foster care. After an on-going legal battle with the parents, Crystal flew to Michigan to give birth to the child according to CNN, thus leaving the child to be fostered, rather than being raised by herself or the originally intended parents.
The couple, who desperately desired a fourth child, provided the surrogate with an embryo they had left over from a previous round of in-vitro fertilization. The process began on Oct. 8 2011, and Crystal became pregnant only 10 days later.
The Disability Debacle
The biological mother kept closely in touch with Crystal and called her daily to check on her morning sickness. She gave Christmas gifts to Crystal and her two daughters and even paid off the monthly surrogate fee ahead of time since Crystal was currently faced with financial issues.
"I want you to come to us with anything because you're going to be part of our lives forever," said Kelley to CNN. Things began to change in February when the ultrasound test showed that the baby's development was not going as smoothly as it once did.
The ultrasound revealed that the baby had a cleft lip and palate, a cyst in her brain and a series of heart defects according to the Daily Mail. A spleen and stomach were undetectable. Doctors at Hartford Hospital said the baby needed a variety of surgeries after birth and had a 25 percent chance of living normally.
The parents requested pregnancy termination as they saw the baby's medical problems as overwhelming for the infant. Nonetheless, Crystal is very religious and disagreed stating that "all efforts should be made to give the baby a chance."
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Is Crystal a hero for saving the baby?

Lamar could not keep his eyes open in court during his custody hearing, according to a new report. Do YOU think it's rude that Lamar fell asleep during a case about his kids?
It seems as if catching a few “Z’s” was Lamar Odom’sprimary concern during a custody hearing at a New York courthouse on March 5. The clippers basketball star, 33, dozed off during an ongoing child custody battle, causing the court officer to call him out.
"Excuse me, are you OK?" the court officer said to Lamar, according to the New York Post. After the officer woke him from his little nap, Lamar reportedly replied that he was fine.
The officer then told him "I need you to sit up," which Lamar did but rested his head in his hand for the remainder of the hearing. Currently married to Khloe Kardashian, 28, he is battling ex girlfriendLiza Morales for custody of their daughter Destiny, 14, and son Lamar Jr., 11.
Ex Girlfriend Liza Morales Is Devastated
Liza and Lamar were together for 10 years prior to him meeting Khloe. The two met as students at Christ The King High School in Queens, N.Y., and had three children together, one of whom lost his life at only six-months-old. Although Liza and Lamar have been separated for nearly four years, Liza is still angry about the situation.
"How could the man who'd constantly given me reason after reason for why we couldn't get married just yet now be ready to tie the knot so quickly?" she wrote in an open letter she published in The Daily Beast.
Liza, who claims the couple was once engaged in 2000, also revealed that now she and Lamar have no relationship at all. "We only communicate through third parties and lawyers, which I regret deeply since it is exactly what we each experienced as children and said we wouldn't do it to our kids," she wrote in the letter.
It seems as there's much more to this custody battle than Lamar and Liza's two children. What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Was it rude that Lamar fell asleep? Should he show more interest in his kids?

Selena Talks About Finding Love Again In New ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Interview
Selena hasn’t given up on love: “I believe in love—yes, I’m one of those girls,” she says. “Most of my friends believe in love. I went out with Katy Perry last night. She’s so fun and awesome, but it’s cool to see someone older believe in love too. She is all about it, and that’s how I will always be. I believe in stories like, ‘Oh, I met him in Starbucks.’”
We just love Selena and can’t wait to hear her new song! Do you think it’ll be sad and about her break up with Justin?
Taylor, you’ve had a string of bad relationships, that’s for sure! But I think that dating Ed could be the best thing for you! Read on to find out why.
Taylor Swift, you haven’t had the easiest time in the romance department lately. It turns out that Harry Styles wasn’t the gentleman you’d hoped he’d be. But your rumored new romance with Ed Sheeran is just the ticket to happier and healthier love. You need a sweet and down-to-earth guy who will put you first!
Taylor Swift’s Troubled Love Life
Taylor, at just 23, you’ve dated two of music’s most notorious playboys: Harry and John Mayer. After the One Direction hunk let you down, allegedly making out with another girl while you were dating, as you authorized a friend to reveal to Vanity Fair, it’s time for you to consider dating someone with a bit tamer reputation!
Taylor & Ed Sheeran: ‘Beyond Just Friends’
And it seems you have. As a source told PEOPLE, "They spent some time together before and after she dated Harry Styles. Around Grammy time, things went beyond just friends." Taylor, this is great!
Ed, 22, is a talented songwriter who you already had a great friendship with, after writing music the song “Everything Has Changed” together for your most recent album, Red. Plus, he doesn’t come with a womanizing reputation!
T.Swift — Ed’s Different From The Other Guys
Taylor, Ed has just the right amount of charming, self-effacing humor that puts him in a different league than the other guys you’ve dated. Back in December of 2012, he even joked that he wasn’t your type, telling The Sun, “If you look at all the dudes she's dated, they're all tall, brown hair, brown eyes, very attractive and all the girls scream for them. I'm chubby, ginger with blue eyes."
The other men you’ve dated have always given off the vibe that they think quite highly of themselves, Taylor. Maybe that’s why you couldn’t find the love connection you were hoping for. But Ed’s humble nature suggests that he’s more mature– just the sort of guy you’re looking for.
I think dating Ed is a great idea, Taylor! Go for it!

Remove rollers and tease hair again. Brush the top layer of hair over the teased portion. Comb all hair back and secure with a thin black headband.
Liam Hemsworth Is Accused Of Cheating With January Jones
January came under fire recently after she was spotted out with Miley Cyrus‘ fiance Liam Hemsworth on Feb. 23.
“It looked like [Liam and January] had some hot chemistry,” an inside at the pre-Oscars party told Star magazine. “Liam got January's coat and helped her put it on, then they headed outside. They made sure to leave a few seconds apart, so they wouldn't attract too much attention. Then they jumped into a waiting car and took off.”
Despite tabloid reports that the engagement was called off, Miley tweeted on March 6, “I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining”

Jennifer, 22, is having the best year of her career! After accepting her Oscar for Best Actress on Feb. 24 for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, she is set to release her latest Hunger Games film later this year. And it’s gonna be awesome!
The poster for the highly anticipated film shows Jennifer in a floor length stunning white dress, with the typical wacky make up seen in the Capitol and she is holding a white rose. Full of ruffles and moulded wings, Katniss looks more like a beautiful princess than a frightened tribute who is about to fight to the death!
Spoiler alert — if you haven’t read the dystopian novel, stop reading now! The sequel shows Katniss and her sexy companion Peeta Meelark (Josh Hutcherson) reenter the Hunger Games as part of the 75th Quarter Quell, where they must once again fight for their lives. But I promise you, it is nothing like the last movie!
Hopefully these posters will excite fans, because the movie is not released until Nov. 22, 2013, so we will have to wait some time yet to see it!

Lea’s Sexy Updo
The star’s hairstylist started by gathering the hair behind Lea’s head in order to twist it into a messy bun. Lona then gave Lea’s bangs a soft touch by blowing them out with her fingers instead of a brush. Lona continued by spraying small sections of her hair with L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Unscented Hairspray before straightening so it could keep its hold.

After appearing on ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ alongside mother of eight Kate Gosselin, Kendra wasn’t happy with the critiques she received! She was ‘really hurt’ when viewers and critics called her a bad mom! Read on for more details.
Kendra Wilkinson is no stranger to reality TV, but when she appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap, she wasn’t expecting the critics to fire at her for apparently being a bad mother. Her transition from being the mom to one kid (baby Hank IV, 3) with the help of her hubby Hank Baskett to Kate Gosselin‘s single mother lifestyle with eight children was overwhelming for the former Playmate — as it would be for any mother!
KKendra Wilkinson On ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’
“Ugh! You could call it birth control,” Kendra told OK! magazine about the experience. “But I survived. I don’t need therapy and it was an experience I’ll always carry with me.”
"You let everybody else do everything because you don't care," Kate said on the episode. "Between [Hank] and Rosa, they do everything, so essentially it enables you to do nothing."
Kendra was “empowered” by the comments made, she said in the episode. “I need to dedicate more time with little Hank," she said.
A close friend of Kendra’s also told the mag that something great about the experience is that Hank has adorable manners and even says ”excuse me” when leaving the dinner table!
Kendra’s Friends Stick Up For Her
However, a friend close to her now reveals that the attack “really hurt” Kendra, and she was “hugely insulted” by the criticism.
“She loves [her son] with her whole heart and soul,” the friend told OK!. “Kendra knows she is a great mom because she and little Hank have so much fun together.”
That fun that she has in her house, the source said, was non-existent in Kate’s crazy household, and that saddened Kendra. Claiming the kids were “too serious” and “too stressed,” Kendra let the kids have a picnic in front of the TV with tacos, instead of Kate’s instructed dinner at the table.
“The kids loved it,” the source told the mag. “They felt like they were at a party.”
Kendra Wants Hank Baskett Jr. To Enjoy His Childhood
At the end of the day, Kendra is planning to take some lessons from the episode but remember – Hank’s still a kid.
“‘You gotta be a kid, son!’” Kendra told the mag of her message to her little one. “That’s my rule to him. You have one chance to be a kid and run around, be free, do whatever you want.”
So HollyMoms, do you think Kendra is a good mother even though she’s more laid back than Kate? Tell us below!
