SOCHI, Russia -- Moguls freestyler Heidi Kloser wasn't about to let a broken leg and torn knee ligaments stop her from marching in the opening ceremony at the Olympics. That's how much the moment meant to the 21-year-old from Vail, Colo. She ended up marching in the parade, on crutches, no less, on Friday. She tweeted a picture of herself, beforehand in Olympic garb, saying: "Excited that I still get to walk!" Just a day earlier, Kloser's Olympic dream came to an end in heartbreaking fashion as she crashed in a training run and had to pull out of the event not long before qualifying started.

The massive mountains towering over Walenstadt inspired Johanna Spyri to create the beloved tale of Heidi and her life in the Swiss Alps. Now, 125 years after the children's classic was first published, a group of London and Swiss producers is staging "Heidi" in a new outdoors musical.

IN L.A., the myth that everyone is waiting to be discovered just won't die, fueled perhaps by the remote possibility that a casting director will one day walk into a Pinkberry and tap the guy behind the counter to portray, with moving realism, the guy behind a Pinkberry counter. I'm immune to this kind of thinking -- unless it involves the dog.

There it is for all the world to see: The Times is a practitioner and therefore an advocate of expletive censorship, as evidenced by Calendar's Oct. 7 cover. TRACY C. WINKLER Cerritos The reference is to a line from Wendy Wasserstein's Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play "The Heidi Chronicles." The character Heidi is asking Scoop what mothers tell sons that they don't tell daughters. The line, as it appeared on the cover: "I mean, why the (expletive) are you so confident?"

CBS, you sure know how to rain on a parade! The celebrity chit chat on your three hours of Thanksgiving Day parade coverage was extremely boring and it interfered with the purpose of the program, which was to view the parades. Another distressing aspect of the coverage was the number of commercials. All the self-promotion for CBS was grossly overdone as well. Heidi and Kyle McCarthy, Glendale

Some comments about Wendy Wasserstein, the subject of Barbara Isenberg's Oct. 7 article, and Wasserstein's play, "The Heidi Chronicles": I too am a sad person, serious and, yes, even sexy. I am also female, and I too go to a gym. (A story about a gym is an important part of Wasserstein's play.) When I stand in the locker room after a workout, naked and sweaty and, yes, tired, I don't see "types" around me. I don't see tight jeans and power suits and super women, all my adversaries.

You didn't think you were going to get rid of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt that easily, did you? After a few years of relative obscurity, the spotlight-loving couple, a.k.a.

PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times According to the network, Montag will spill about her penchant for plastic surgery, which transformed her from an attractive girl-next-door type into something closer to a cartoon fantasy babe from a video game.

Sick of Obamacare overload?  Welcome, then, to Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre's “The Groundskeepers,” where healthcare comes to beautifully moody, elegiac life.

Built in 1904 for railroad workers, Charles Whittlesey's massive structure closed in 1991 and will soon be converted into affordable housing.

Heidi Klum does nothing if not display abundant self-confidence every Halloween: This year's costume saw the supermodel decades in the future as a completely believable, Hollywood-makeup-assisted old lady. Who's afraid of aging, right? Or maybe it's her scariest costume ever! Klum posted shots of her transformation throughout the day on her Twitter feed, including makeup artists Bill Corso and Mike Marino applying her facial prosthetics and the end result of gaining raised varicose veins on her legs.

"Counselors Help Those Grieving Over Loss of Pets" (by Paul Dean, Oct. 4) struck a responsive chord in me. I have been grief-stricken over the loss of my beloved German shepherd, Heidi, who recently had to be put to sleep after living for 15 1/2 years with me, my constant loving companion in the several countries in which I lived. Her last months were spent with hip dysplasia, a disease common to large dogs. The veterinarian did a singularly kind and sympathetic deed by sending a contribution in Heidi's memory to Cornell University's research program into diseases of older animals.

In Martha Brockenbrough's heaven, old people show too much leg playing leap frog, and the church choir covers classic rock. Clearly, Brockenbrough is not a follower of the New Testament. That's good news for heathen readers who will delight in the author's absurdist take on the after life in her devilishly riotous young adult debut, "Devine Intervention. " Steeped in the heavenly tropes of guardian angels and lost souls, "Devine Intervention" is a satire in the vein of Libba Bray's "Beauty Queens," only with a decidedly sacrilegious twist.

  Actress Amy Brenneman said that a friend who read the script for Gina Gionfriddo's play "Rapture, Blister, Burn" told her the part seemed to be written for her. Brenneman, who is recognizable from the TV shows "Private Practice" and "Judging Amy," plays Catherine Croll, a fortysomething, successful, single academic who is trying to figure out why she feels unfulfilled in her personal life. The play opens Wednesday at the Geffen Playhouse. Though the character of Catharine is an author with titles such as "Women Always Call Free: Pornography and the Corruption of American Feminism" on her resume, her personal life doesn't feel as accomplished, and she still lusts after an old boyfriend.

If you've kept any tabs on Heidi Klum's recent Instagram and Twitter photos, you'll notice the German supermodel has been posting some racy photos. You know, the topless one in Bora Bora, the bikini-clad one amid a sunset and the one of her toned - and tanned - bum. Well, it turns out her mother is the one snapping those photos! “You will be surprised when you hear that my mom takes most of the photos,” the 40-year-old told Access Hollywood . “Yeah, my mom and dad.
