Girls said she'd steal their boyfriends, so she told them the truth. It only made things worse.

I dare you to not start applauding Ruby Rose before she stops talking. That's how awesome her words are.

Girls said she'd steal their boyfriends, so she told them the truth. It only made things worse.

Ruby Rose is best known for being a stunningly beautiful Australian DJ and model (who was just cast in "Orange Is the New Black").

Huge emphasis on stunning.


But before she was this famous, Ruby was rejected and bullied in school.

In middle school, Ruby's female classmates were mean to her.

Ruby spent a lot of time with the guys. And, well, the girls figured she wanted to steal their boyfriends.

As it turns out, that was pretty far from the truth.

Ruby was gay.

And because of that, she felt more comfortable hanging out with the guys than with the girls, whom she was very attracted to.

So she decided to tell people the truth.

What followed inspired Ruby to speak out in this video, years later.

Ruby talks about the backlash and depression she faced after coming out.

I've gotta say, this is a gripping story.

Props to you, Ruby, for speaking up — and, more importantly, for sticking through the rough times.

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."

Vanna White appeared on "The Price Is Right" in 1980.

Vanna White has been a household name in the United States for decades, which is kind of hilarious when you consider how she gained her fame and fortune. Since 1982, the former model and actress has made millions walking back and forth turning letters (and later simply touching them—yay technology) on the game show "Wheel of Fortune."

That's it. Walking back and forth in a pretty evening gown, flipping letters and clapping for contestants. More on that job in a minute…

As a member of Gen X, television game shows like "Wheel of Fortune" and "The Price is Right" send me straight back to my childhood. Watching this clip from 1980 of Vanna White competing on "The Price is Right" two years before she started turning letters on "Wheel of Fortune" is like stepping into a time machine. Bob Barker's voice, the theme music, the sound effects—I swear I'm home from school sick, lying on the ugly flowered couch with my mom checking my forehead and bringing me Tang.

This video has it all: the early '80s hairstyles, a fresh-faced Vanna White and Bob Barker's casual sexism that would never in a million years fly today.
