Their Planet Green series was canceled, but the Fabulous Beekman Boys — Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge — are back, this time competing for a $20 million prize as one of the 11 teams on the 21st edition of "The Amazing Race," which kicks off Sept. 30.
Pro boxer and mom Laila Ali is featured in a new PSA for Moms Clean Air Force to combat air pollution. "My life changed so much when I became a mother," she explains. "I speak out on air pollution because I feel like there are so many kids right now that are affected and it is really sad. You usually go to the schools now and so many kids in the classroom have asthma — way more than there were when I was a child. Air pollution is the chief culprit of childhood asthma. And it affects 10 percent of all children and 22 percent of African American children." View her video here:
