Positive Paparazzi: Kristen Bell Celebrates The Repeal Of DOMA With A Proposal

Pop 2 it

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd have been engaged since 2009, but refused to get married until their LGBT friends had the same rights as they did. Bell once said, “I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends.” Welp, since DOMA was repealed, she proposed to Shepherd via Twitter and they are GETTIN HITCHED Y'ALL. I don't know why I just said that. I don't think either of them are even from the south. Um...

AAAANNNYYYYWAYYYYYYYY

It's summer a.k.a. SUMMERRRRRRR, which means many things, including Avril Lavigne's new summer camp. Camp S.T.A.R.S. (Summer Time Avril Rock Stars) is a program that gives children with disabilities the chance to attend summer camp. How's THAT for puttin a dash of awesome sauce on a cause?

In other news, Jennifer Aniston was recently named Ambassador to Saks Fifth Avenue's Key To The Cure Campaign. Other than the laboriously long title, this is great! Who better than to be the face of finding a cure to breast cancer? No one. That's who.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation donated money to Beat, a non-profit dedicated to beating eating disorders. Winehouse's brother, Alex Winehouserecently revealed that his sister had an eating disorder and would have lived a little longer if she were not also battling with bulimia. The donations serve those living with the disorder and pay tribute to Winehouse's memory.

A whoooole bunch a musicians kicked off Summer of Hope, a social media event that benefitted one charity: City of Hope, a research, treatment and education center for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Among the stars were Adam Levine, Selena Gomez, Brittany Spears, and David Guetta.

Bette Midler is making everyone bawl their damn eyes out with a video of her singing "Wind Beneath My Wings," to a terminally ill fan. The video is upside down but you're just gonna have to DEAL WITH IT, because you're about to feel an insane amount of feels. Flip your laptop, grab your tissues, grab your chocolate and get a dang therapist on speed dial, because you're going to need it:

28-year-old Anna Greenberg passed away, but not before she was met with the dream of hearing Midler sing to her.

David Beckham brought smiles to the faces of children when he visited them at Green Town Hospital in China. If I was sick, I'm sure Beckham's face would make me smile too. Heck, I'd probably shoot out of bed like Grandpa Joe in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

David Beckham: Footballer, underwear model, holistic cure for the blues.

I always like to have an out-of-the-box item on this list and I think I found one: It has to do with a star in The Mentalist and--keep an open mind here--the Kitty Bungalow Charm School For Wayward Cats. No, it's not a school of witchcraft, it's a charity to help, well, wayward cats. And Owen Yeoman, the Mentalist star, is helping! KBCSFWC (good lord) is putting on a CATberet! And Yeoman is hitting the stage! What a wonderful and odd thing to ever occur. Save the kitties y'all.

In less perplexing, yet just as great news, Alycia Keys is teaming up with Vh1 to empower women with AIDS. All she needs is a cape, if you pick up what I'm puttin down.

Lastly, (I know, I'm sad we're done too) what's better than a man in uniform? A man in a suit. Gary Sinese is donning war veterans in some serious swag rag as they enter the civilian workforce. Now, that's serving the folks that serve our country. I am IN to it, baby.

Well, my lovelies, it's that time again where I bid you adieu. Until next week, here's to the celebs that brought us tears of joy, smiles and laughter, and who restored our faith in humanity a little more. Cheers to THAT. Go forth and love one another. PEACE OUT.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
