Certainly it can hard to be “the other woman” in a political sex scandal. But who knew that it's also no picnic being “the other woman's” woman? That's the situation Jill Kelley has found herself in. But Kelley, the Tampa, Fla., socialite who sparked the investigation into ex-CIA Director David H. Petraeus' extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, which prompted his resignation, is not taking her situation lying down. She's suing the FBI and the Pentagon for violating her privacy.

Richard D. Kelley, a bassist whose tenure with the Los Angeles Philharmonic lasted nearly six decades, died on Tuesday at 76. The musician died at his home in La Puente following a long battle with cancer, according to an orchestra spokeswoman. Kelley was one of the orchestra's longest serving musicians at the time of his retirement in October. He joined the bass section in 1956 at the age of 19. During his 57-year tenure, he played under six different music directors, most recently with Gustavo Dudamel.

Last fall, when the big traveling retrospective of Los Angeles artist Mike Kelley (1954-2012) opened at MoMA PS1, the Museum of Modern Art's outpost in Long Island City, N.Y., the show looked smashing. Largely that was due to the intrinsic quality of Kelley's diverse work in a staggeringly wide range of media - sculpture, painting, drawing, installation, video, performance, mosaic - plus various mash-ups of just about all of them. Partly, though, it was serendipity. PHOTOS: 'Mike Kelley' exhibit A primary subject of Kelley's art is the way familiar social institutions of daily life - especially school and church, but also including art museums and other representatives of authoritative points of view - inevitably conspire to constrain, pressure and sometimes even warp the very adherents they seek to console and liberate.

Gen. P. X. Kelley was ready to take his parting shots Monday as Marine Corps commandant by putting heat on Congress for being cheap with defense and on the news media for having a "lynch mob mentality." But, instead, Kelley took pity on the troops wobbling in the muggy heat at retirement ceremonies for him and Gen. John A. Wickham, the Army chief of staff, and made a simple farewell.

Twice--under very different circumstances, 14 years apart--Kelley became pregnant. Both times--for very different reasons--she made the difficult decision to have an abortion. Now 42, Kelley, who lives in San Clemente, longs to experience pregnancy and childbirth "the way it's supposed to happen." She, her husband and their doctors have tried "every possible procedure" from in vitro fertilization to fertility drugs to various surgeries, all without success.

Famed for the diversity and authenticity of its dim sum, noodle and dumpling houses (not to mention its countless boba cafes), the San Gabriel Valley offers a less expected but no less enticing pleasure: bakeries. The Glutton favors two SGV bakeries in particular: Kelley's (Monterey Park) and Kiki (Alhambra). Both feature cheesecakes, fruit tarts, mousse squares and gorgeously decorated cakes resting alongside savory ham and cheese buns, onion rolls filled with shredded meat and peppery meat pies.

By 1991, Mike Kelley had emerged as a crucial artist in Los Angeles, at the head of a pack that had pushed into prominence in the previous decade. His riveting sculptures reassembled from ratty stuffed animals, crocheted dolls and other tattered children's playthings that he scavenged from thrift shops were also generating considerable critical attention far beyond the city. Then 36, Kelley was invited to participate in the Carnegie International exhibition in Pittsburgh, one of the oldest and most respected surveys of its kind.

Kelley Blue Book is out with its list of the best sedans under $25,000. It has some of our favorites, such as the Honda Accord and Mazda6 and some choices that we might not have included, including the Volkswagen Jetta and Toyota Camry. While all of these vehicles have a model that sells for less than $25,000, and some well under that, others might cost more once you include options and other amenities such as leather seats. And don't forget to add in tax and license fees, which run about 10% of the purchase price.   Still, there's no doubt that there are many good family sedans on the market right now as increased competition from U.S.

Kelley says its analysis includes factors that go beyond depreciation and fuel costs and include "finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state fees for new models.

WASHINGTON - During the weeks before he was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles, reporter Michael Hastings was researching a story about a privacy lawsuit brought by Florida socialite Jill Kelley against the Department of Defense and the FBI. Hastings, 33, was scheduled to meet with a representative of Kelley next week in Los Angeles to discuss the case, according to a person close to Kelley. Hastings wrote for Rolling Stone and the website BuzzFeed. Kelley alleges that military officials and the FBI leaked her name to the media to discredit her after she reported receiving a stream of emails that were traced to Paula Broadwell, a biographer of former CIA director David H. Petraeus, according to a lawsuit filed in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C., on June 3. Petraeus resigned from the CIA after publicly admitting that he and Broadwell had carried on an extramarital affair.

Made up to look like black and white drawings, the protagonists in Mary Reid Kelley's videos speak in a constant, densely allusive patter. This approach worked swimmingly in her 2010 show at Susanne Vielmetter, which featured two videos that looked at the darker side of early modernism. The stark, stylized appearance of those works perfectly evoked stripped-down modern aesthetics. Her latest efforts - in collaboration with her partner, Patrick Kelley - are less taut and more expansive.
