CDC Says The Kissing Bug Is In Kentucky [Video]

It's not what it sounds like, but the CDC confirms that the Kissing Bug is in Kentucky.  And, no.  You don't get it from kissing.  That's got to be a relief, right?  But this won't be.  The Kissing Bug gets its name because they actually "kiss" you.  But trust us.  You won't want them to.

The Coolest Celebrity I’ve Ever Met [PHOTO]

When you're a radio DJ, people assume that we've met tons of celebrities. And, everyone always wants to know who my favorite is. Well, that's true, I've met a bunch of country music stars in my years in radio, but none that I've really been star-struck over. I honestly can't remember fangirling over too many celebs, but this weekend at our St. Jude Country Cares for Kids conference, I totally freaked out!

Guess who I got to meet?

This is a real product, take a look!

How to Wax Your Nose Hair [Video]

For the record, I did not pull a "Steve Carrell" and yell "Kelly Clarkson!!!!" when they yanked the hair out.  LOL!  The other day, I was broadcasting live at Advanced Aesthetics, Owensboro Dermatology's medical spa, and Goldie popped in.  She told me that the gals can actually wax nose hairs!  And I knew I had to give it a try.  After all, I'm 44 now and the inside of my nose looks like I have hamster shoved up inside it.
