“Heartbroken” sums up how Mexican American mom Jeanie Kastas felt when she discovered that her 10-year-old son, Jonathan, was being taunted at school.
“The kids were calling him names like ‘wetback’ and saying things like ‘go back to your country,’” she says. It devastated her to see her jovial little fifth grader turning into a sad, angry person. “I wanted to fix it,” says Kastas, whose son is not alone, considering that almost 28 percent of Hispanic students report being bullied, according to the National Center for Education.

Congrats to my E! sister Kim Kardashian who, unless you’ve been living under a rock, had her baby two weeks ago. Two weeks ago, which was five weeks before she was actually due!
Panic sets in!
Of course I always knew that there would be a possibility that Baby Bean might decide to come early but now that I’m in the home stretch, ‘early’ is any time between now and his due date!
Cue the circus music because that’s the beat I’m going to these days.
