Whitney Houston was laid to rest in the presence of her closest friends and family in a private ceremony at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, NJ, last Sunday.

Kelly performing emotional tributes.

At 94, NCIS star Mark Harmon's mother, actress and fashion designer Elyse Knox Harmon, passed away Wednesday, February 15 at her Los Angeles home surrounded by family. In lieu of flowers, the family requested that donations be sent to The Lange Foundation in honor of Knox's enduring love for animals.

Kate Gosselin, of Jon & Kate Plus 8 fame, spoke candidly on Dr. Drew's Lifechangers of her highly-publicized divorce from Jon Gosselin. Kate revealed that she knew the odds were against her and Jon when they had so many children and that she's has been "lonely" in the years following her split.
