A 14-year-old Oakland boy suspected of fatally shooting his older sister, possibly during a fight over bleached laundry, is being charged as a juvenile, prosecutors said. Mario Toliver Jr. was charged Thursday, one day after he turned himself in to police in connection with the shooting death of his 17-year-old sister, Justice Toliver. Citing privacy laws for juvenile defendants, the Alameda County district attorney's office would not disclose the exact charge until Mario is arraigned in court Monday, but members of the boy's legal team told local media that they suspected it was either manslaughter or murder.

Although it has some of the new-colt wobbliness common to newborn series, "The Fosters," which premieres Monday on ABC Family, gets on its legs pretty quickly. Created by the alliterative team of Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige, whose main previous writing credit is the short-lived CW reality series "Fly Girls" - a peek back into the archives reminds me that I did not like it much at all - and with Jennifer Lopez as a celebrity executive producer, it is a blended-family series that leaves no stone unblended.

Kelly Rowland's solo career has never been able to escape that of Beyoncé. Since her 2002 solo debut, Rowland has stood in the shadow of her Destiny's Child sister. It's almost impossible to find an interview with the singer without a mention of her more successful pal.

Now, she's finally opening up about how it's affected her in a stunningly candid new single, “Dirty Laundry,” taken from her upcoming fourth album, “Talk a Good Game.” PHOTOS: Girl group evolution Produced by The-Dream, Rowland's intensely personal single has the singer facing her resentment over her post-Destiny's Child career -- and revealing that as she stood in the shadows, she was also being physically abused.

Remember inflatable hangers? They stashed flat in your suitcase, then were inflated for drying your hand laundry. Alas, they didn't stand the test of travel. But now there's Travelon, which holds tops as well as pants, which can be draped through an inflatable integrated lower section of the hanger. Two plastic bottom hooks can hold delicate items. The hanger inflates easily once you get the hang of the pinch-nozzle process, and it largely maintains inflation. Inflated, the hanger measures 17 1/2 inches wide and comes two to a package for $13. Info for the hanger (item No. 12124)
