Tennessee Sisters’ Lemonade Stand Raises Thousands of Dollars for Cancer Research After Mom’s Diagnosis
If you need to raise money for aid, the tried-and-true method is to sell good old-fashioned lemonade.
That’s what 7-year-old Isabella Nerstad and her 4-year-old sister, Greta Nerstad, did when they helped to organize a lemonade stand last Wednesday in Knoxville, Tennessee, to benefit lung cancer research. The success of the event would exceed even the sisters’ own expectations, and it holds a special significance for them—their mother, Amanda Nerstad, was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer last October at just 39 years old.

Celebrity Wax Figures: The Good, the Bad and the Wtf
The BeyHive was buzzing earlier this week when a photo of one of Beyoncé's Madame Tussauds museum wax statues went viral for the wrong reason. Namely, because it looks nothing like Beyoncé. Many fans accused the museum of whitewashing. "At Madame Tussauds, our talented team of sculptors take every effort to ensure we accurately color match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted," Madame Tussauds said in a statement to TheWrap. "Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures which is something our sculptors are unable to account for at the production stage."

'A Dog Legends Are Made Of': Read a Pet Parent's Heartbreaking, Hilarious Obit to Her Beloved Pup
Judging from his lovingly written obituary published by NBC Connecticut, Brian the dog was extraordinary in his own ordinary rescue dog kind of way. His owner, Lee Dibella of Watertown, Connecticut, is pretty special too.

Et spoke with the 58-year-old actor in Los Angeles on Thursday, after 70-year-old Simpson was granted parole by the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners, following nine years in prison for his part in the robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas in September 2007.

Chester Bennington Found Dead on Chris Cornell's Birthday: Inside Their Close Friendship
Chester Bennington was found dead on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his dear friend and one of his idols, Chris Cornell.
