Almost three months after Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in an Atlanta bathtub, her dad, Bobby Brown, said that his daughter is awake and watching him.

Janay Rice recently opened up to New York Magazine about the infamous elevator incident that sparked a conversation about domestic violence within the NFL. Janay told the magazine that in the months leading up to the fight, she had grown frustrated with how little time her husband, Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice, spent with her. "Football came before everything and everyone," she told the magazine. "It was definitely frustrating. It was hard knowing I wasn't his first priority." She said that on that night in Atlantic City, she became upset that Ray wasn't spending time with her, and he snapped. The two are continuing to work on their relationship. [New York Magazine]
