Hey, is it hot in here?

Or is it these sizzling superheroes who scintillate and seduce on the small screen every week?!?

Indeed, you can keep your Avengers. You can have your Spider-Man (or Spider-Men, considering the many incantations of this webbed teenager). We have no interest in your Batman.

How good looking is Stephen Amell? Even with his shirt on in this photo, the actor just caused half the women reading this post to dump their boyfriends.

Women rarely like their men fast. But Grant Gustin causes them to make an exception as The Flash.

On a nearly daily basis, television is delivering red hot superhero action straight into our living room these days, from Stephen Amell's abs on Arrow Season 3 to Ian Somerhalder sinister smirk on The Vampire Diaries Season 6.

The lovely Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has delivered a rare video address to highlight the importance of an issue near and dear to her heart.

No, not ordering Prince William to keep royal family members away from her kids at all costs, though we would consider paying money to watch that on video.

Recorded to support the UK's first Children's Mental Health Week, Kate Middleton's video hopes to raise awareness and support for children's health issues.

Specifically, mental ones.

Kate says she has seen the impact of bullying, bereavement, family breakdown and other issues, which lead to depression, anxiety, addiction and self-harm.

The mother of Prince George says the stigma around mental health means that many children do not get the help they so badly need, and this must change.

She made the comments in an online video for Place2Be, an organization which offers emotional help and support in schools across the United Kingdom.

Kate Middleton said: "Through Place2Be I have seen the benefits of offering children support for their mental health in the safety of the school environment."

"Both William and I sincerely believe that early action can prevent problems in childhood from turning into larger ones later in life," says the 33-year-old.

Kate recorded her impassioned speech at Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School in Beckenham, London, to launch a week-long campaign by the charity.

Her video can be watched at Place2Be's website, which also features numerous tips and guidance for parents on children's mental health issues.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said: "The Duchess of Cambridge is a committed champion of issues related to children's mental health and emotional wellbeing."

"Her Royal Highness has seen that addiction, poverty, abuse, neglect, loss and illness of family members, can have a long lasting, traumatic impact if left unsupported.

"The Duchess of Cambridge is especially concerned with early intervention mental health support for young people, to tackle these issues at the earliest possible stage."

If given that support, Kate and the organization believe a greater number of children in the UK and beyond can "have the brightest possible futures, as they deserve."

The Duchess is also a patron of two other charities that specifically help disadvantaged people, Action on Addiction and East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

Looking radiant, the pregnant Kate, due to give birth to her second child in April, delivered the message wearing a blue £250-Jaeger tile-print ensemble.

Yesterday, Lee "Uncle Poodle" Thompson blamed June Shannon for the fact that Honey Boo Boo is "morbidly obese."

Now, Poodle has a professional medical opinion to back up his claim.

June and 9-year-old Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo) appeared on the medical talk show The Doctors this week to discuss Alana's eating habits.

Predictably, the docs were appalled by Alana's diet.

In addition to the fact that Alana is more than twice the weight she should be for her age and size (she clocks in at 4'6", 125 pounds), Alana is apparently suffering from severe asthma as a result of inflammation caused by her diet.

"She's suffering from severe asthma, which is caused by the way she's eating the foods in their house," says Dr. Travis Stork.

"I didn't see anything in that fridge that's gonna either improve Alana's weight, or reduce the inflammation in her body...This isn't a joke. Now's the time," Stork told Mama June following an inspection of the family's home.

Many have suggested that Alana's chronic over-eating may be a coping mechanism tied to her family's recent struggles.

In September of last year, June left Alana's father. Shortly thereafter, it was revealed that June was dating Mark McDaniel - the man who recently served ten years in prison after being convicted of molesting Alana's oldest sister.

Needless to say, all of that could be a lot for a 9-year-old to take, but doctors say coping by binge-eating will only compound Alana's problems.

Selena Gomez reached out to a depressing, seemingly suicidal fan on Instagram this morning, passing along a message of inspiration and hope to all who follow her.

Based on her note, it appears as if Selena noticed one of her supporters seemed to be going through a very tough time.

In response, Gomez followed the unnamed individual, left a lengthy comment and also posted a screenshot of message and on her Instagram account.

"By me following you is not me saying it’s ok to think these thoughts. It’s not me saying ‘hey you said sad things, so I’m going to follow you to make you feel better,'" Selena wrote.

"God puts us in situations that are so unexplainably difficult for a reason. There is someone in the world feeling so much, just like you. There is someone who will always have it better or have it way worse than you.”

Gomez, who is NOT dating Justin Bieber at the moment but who may be bedding DJ Zedd, continued:

"The point of all of that is for [you] to feel not alone. My point is, you are not alone in this world. People everyday feel so many emotions they wish they could turn it off. But that’s not why we are here. We are here for relationships, for people just like us who feel worthless.”

Selena concluded by referencing a higher power and writing:

"Your purpose is to share, help, encourage. Remember that. Please. Before you think of taking your life, think of all the life’s you could save. I love you. More importantly there is a God that will love more than I ever could."

Well said and well done, Selena. Let's hope everyone out there heeds these words.

Despite a lot of support for Britt Nilsson and Jade Roper, it's a done deal for Kaitlyn, according to Reality Steve, the Oracle of The Bachelor Spoilers.

Speculation that ABC would make Kaitlyn Bristowe the next Bachelorette began immediately after she was nixed by Chris Soules on The Bachelor.

Monday night, he opted for Whitney Bischoff and Becca Tilley over Kaitlyn, the loveble, fan favorite dance instructor from Vancouver, British Columbia.

The announcement should come on March 9, after Chris picks Whitney or Becca and goes public for the first time on the After the Final Rose special.

Then again, Chris himself was not confirmed by ABC until after Andi Dorfman's season finale aired, so it's unclear if the producers will drag this one out.

For now, the producers are playing it close to the vest like they always do, saying they are still deciding because man, what a tough call this one is.

Not really. Kaitlyn Bristowe is The Bachelorette. The end.

The new guys are already set to start filming her season next month, and whether they know it's her or not, they are in for one heck of a good time.

Whether she was getting LOW on the premiere, getting crazy at Costco or speaking her mind in her Canadian accent, Kaitlyn was a treat on The Bachelor.

Chris' loss is our gain, and maybe someone else's.

If nothing else, she will be the most entertaining, beer-chugging, smack-talking shot-caller the show has ever had this year. She's a character (and hot).

Win or lose (at love), Kaitlyn's spot in franchise history has been cemented. She'll be the second Vancouver Bachelorette, funnily enough, after Jillian Harris.

Here's hoping she fares better than Jillian and most of The Bachelorette stars over the past 10 years. The track record, by and large, is not stellar ...
