Sorry, Mr. President. It’s time to get on board the Sue Sylvester Express. Destination: AWESOME.
Tennis pro Kim Clijsters proved herself to be a champ on and off the court last night when she donated her $37,000 winnings at the Brisbane International in Australia to Brisbane’s Royal Children’s Hospital.
Kim, who is mom to 17-month-old daughter Jada, reveals she was inspired to make the donation after spending some time with the young patients at the hospital last week.
“It changes you, it stuck with me for days,” the 26-year-old says of her visit. “It’s terrible to see kids (suffering). There were boys and girls Jada’s age, 17 months and three years old, with brain tumours and everything. You wonder how it was possible for a young baby like that and it’s not easy.”
The Belgium-born athlete says that she hopes her “small amount” will inspire others to give what they can as well.
“It’s a small amount but hopefully it can help other people and other people can see it that it’s a good thing and hopefully other people can donate. Maybe in the long run it can really help.”

Jennifer Connelly and husband Paul Bettany were photographed walking with her 12-year-old son Kai Dougan and their 6-year-old son Stellan to school in New York City on Monday (January 11). The family pup came along for the stroll.
Jennifer and Paul will light up the big screen in the controversial new film Creation, set to hit theaters Friday, January 22.
My husband Paul and I play Charles and Emma Darwin in Creation,” Jennifer recently said. “He, of course, is developing his theory of evolution and I’m a devout Christian whose faith contradicts his work. Even though they have this huge problem at the center of their marriage, they are full of love for one another. It’s well documented in the letters that they wrote to each other where they often faced their problems through written correspondence rather than talking to each other in the same room. They would try to sort out their conflicts and she would implore him to read certain passages from the Bible, and he would explain to her his gradual loss of faith.”

Funny dad Conan O’Brien spent Sunday afternoon with his family. The late night host and his wife Elizabeth Ann were spotted out and about in Los Angeles, California yesterday with their kids Neve, 6, and Beckett, 4.
In the wake of NBC’s announcement this weekend that Jay Leno will be taking back his coveted 11:35pm time slot, there are rumors that Conan is considering a move to a competing network.
