  • On the second hour of GTU this morning – Actress Eva Mendes has created quite the controversy with her recent social media post. The quote she posted, credited to mom blogger Racheous read, “Spanking does for a child’s development what hitting a spouse does for a marriage.” The reaction has been swift and divided. We share what her followers are saying this morning.
  • Plus, Drew Barrymore’s post will have you getting nostalgic. The talk show host reposted a quote from a New York Times columnist that started by saying this: “I realize that, according to the odds, my life is nearly two-thirds over, that I have more summers behind me than in front of me. This doesn’t mean that I’ve grown fatalistic or even that I feel particularly odd. It is just a realization that the math says what the math says. And as such, I have begun to make certain adjustments, to change my perspective on my life.” We’ll tell you what the rest of the post said.
