9 Sneaky Places Skin Cancer Hides

I should have known my trip to the dermatologist wasn't going to end well when I walked in and saw the derm's diploma was hanging lopsided on the wall.

Connie Britton's Secrets to Being a Do-It-All Single Mom

Connie Britton may be the star actress of ABC's hit show "Nashville," but playing country music legend Rayna James may not be Britton's most important -- nor most challenging -- role.
