“My diet pill and laxative addiction also started when I was around 16 and continued into my early 20s,” Lily confesses.
“I knew my mom would never be okay with them, so I started secretly buying them at drugstores and hiding them all over my room.”

We have a feeling that Mark Twain, who’s been dead for over 100 years, might be back on the bestseller’s list this year — and it’s all because of a new fairytale from the author called “The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine.”
The story, which started out as a bedtime story he told to his daughters, is about to be completed and published this coming fall, USA Today reports.
The basis for the book is 16 pages of handwritten notes Twain made after he told his young daughters a fairy tale one night while the family was staying in Paris.
“The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine” follows a young boy who eats the flower sprouted by a magical seed and gains the ability to talk to animals. From there, the boy and his new animal friends go off on a wild adventure to rescue a kidnapped prince.
