The last time Anna Chlumsky joined Ali on "Daily Shot," the expectant mom was looking forward to the birth of her daughter, Penelope. Just six months after the little bundle of joy's arrival, Anna's daughter was already having Hollywood moments.
Anna brought her family to London for a "Veep" shoot and happened to be staying in the same hotel as Lady Gaga. Anna's nanny was in the lobby with the baby when the eccentric pop star descended the stairway in a signature wild outfit. She looked into the stroller and simply said, "Gorgeous."
"She's Gaga-approved!" Anna says.
The actress is looking forward to the new season of "Veep," which brings her character, Amy Brookheimer, the vice president's chief of staff, onto the campaign trail. "It's just basically opening the doors to our mayhem," Anna teases.
To watch Anna play "'Scandal,' 'House of Cards,' or 'Veep'?" check out this episode of "Dai...Read More »

As you get older, you might notice that you're losing sleep, your hair is thinning, and your waist is getting thicker. What's going on? Dawn Cutillo is a holistic health practitioner and the author of "The Hormone 'Shift'," and she stopped by "Daily Shot" with some answers.
How do you know if you're premenopausal? "Basically, you feel like you have PMS every day," Dawn says. "You start to gain weight, you have problems with your mood, you can't sleep as well … and then you get the hot flashes." That shows you may be starting to enter "the change."
Hot flashes result from dips in estrogen levels, and they're a sign that "the ovaries are starting to shut down," Dawn explains. But what triggers these unpleasant episodes is actually falling blood sugar — something to keep in mind when you're about to have caffeine or a sugary snack.
Still, Dawn says there is one way to ease the effects of shifting hormones...Read More »

From lightning strikes to love at first sight, you've probably wondered, "What are the chances?" Founder and president of "The Book of Odds," Amram Shapiro stopped by "Daily Shot" to reveal the most shocking statistics about life, love, and death.
What are the chances that you'll be struck by lightning? About one in a million. But if you're one of the unlucky few to get hit by a bolt, it may not be over. "The odds of surviving a lightning strike are 90 percent," Amram says. "To put that into context, those are about the same odds that a household has a family Bible."
What are the odds you'll meet your match on a blind date? If a friend offers to set you up, don't let your hopes get too high. "Blind dates are right up there with dental procedures," Amram says. "They're not very successful. Only one in 34.5 blind dates produce a long-term relationship."
And if you decide to turn to online dating, p...Read More »

As a star of shows like "Jackass," "Viva La Bam," and "Bam's World Domination," Bam Margera has performed his fair share of exciting, dangerous, and straight-up dumb stunts for TV. He stopped by "Daily Shot" to talk about some of his best moments.

What's the scariest thing he's ever done? "Doing the loop on a skateboard," he says, referring to a 20-foot loop he skated in 2005. Apparently, his fear only motivates him to do the stunt bigger and better. "Now me and Danny Way are going for a 40-foot one in the Caribbean on June 1st," Bam says.
The stupidest thing he's ever done? "It wasn't actually on film, but I fell asleep on Virgin Airlines in the bathroom, drunk," Bam says of one fateful flight. "They had to jimmy the door open just to find me passed out half naked. I had to write Richard Branson an apology letter."

Bam's back at it again with "Bam's Bad Ass Game Show," which features competitors vying against each other in wi...Read More »

Actress, producer, and activist Marlo Thomas has won four Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy over her storied career. She's also been happily married to talk show host Phil Donahue for nearly 35 years.
What's the secret to the couple's long and happy marriage? "Aside from loving each other and having a good chemistry is listening to each other," Marlo says. "I really don't think I listened to Phil for several years. … I was too busy advising him." One day, 10 years into their marriage, Phil said, "Could you just nod? I don't really want any advice, I just want to talk about it." Marlo says the lesson about the importance of listening has since helped her with all of her relationships.
The "Free to Be… You & Me" creator's most recent project is her new book, "It Ain't Over … Till It's Over: Reinventing Your Life — and Realizing Your Dreams — Anytime, at Any Age," which features 60 examples of women throughout the...Read More »
