The "Dancing With the Stars" contestant appears in a PSA with 15-year-old burn survivor Jenna Bullen of Oklahoma, which intends to raise awareness about the issue and benefit the Phoenix Society of Burn Survivors. The two will appear on Dr. Drew's "Lifechangers" tomorrow at 3 p.m. on The CW. [YouTube]
  • Another day, another Beyonce video (we can't be the only ones starting to feel that way!). This time around, the pregnant singer dropped the clip for single "Love on Top" - except, there's no baby bump in this one.
