Kathie Lee & Hoda: Lindsay Lohan On Chelsea Lately
Lindsay Lohan recently got out of her latest 90-day stint in rehab and decided that she was going to host Chelsea Lately. If you doubted that Lindsay would be handling her situation with class, you should really think again.

Women Without Children Work Harder, Study Says
A new study has been released that shows 40 percent of working women who don’t have children work harder than those that work with children. This is mainly because a lot of work is dumped onto them by women that have to leave work because of an emergency with their children or other child-related issue that need attending to. Hoda noted that when she was in local news, she ended up working a lot of holidays because asking for them off made you feel bad, knowing that you would be making someone with a child come to work.
