Paralympic Medalist Amy Purdy Wears Minidress On Red Carpet, Flaunts Prosthetics

Our hats are off to Amy Purdy for proudly showing off her prosthetics on the red carpet.

The 2014 Team USA Paralympic bronze medalist proudly paired a minidress with her prosthetic legs Thursday night at the OK! TV Awards Party in Los Angeles, an inspiring choice her fans can't stop calling "beautiful" on social media.

Purdy, 34, a 34-year-old pro snowboarder who also appeared on season 18 of "Dancing With the Stars," lost both of her legs at the age of 19 following a battle with bacterial meningitis.

Doctors gave Purdy a "less than 2 percent chance" of surviving the infection, which put her in a coma for nearly three weeks and also took her spleen, the hearing in her left ear and her kidneys. She ultimately persevered and returned to snowboarding, but only after building her own prosthetics, because snowboarding-specific ones didn't exist at the time.

Purdy returned to the hospital again a week before her 21st birthday for an organ transplant -- a kidney donated by her father. As before, she recovered and returned to physical activity, co-founding Adaptive Action Sports, a group dedicated to helping individuals with physical disabilities participate in action sports.



Speaking of her appearance on "Dancing With the Stars," Purdy told ABC she's proud to have helped knock down barriers.

"To be able to walk down the street and have people stop you, not just because they recognize you, but because you somehow personally touched them, it's amazing," she said. "In the past, if you saw a girl with prosthetic legs walking down the street, you can imagine people would kind of look and not know what to say, or maybe they are fascinated, or maybe they feel bad for you."

"But now when I walk down the street wearing a skirt, those lines have been blurred, barriers have been knocked down," Purdy continued. "They look at me for what I'm capable of instead of going, 'That girl has prosthetic legs.'"

Jessica Alba Says Church’s Stance On Gays, Premarital Sex Caused Her To Walk Away

Although she was a born-again Christian for four years, Jessica Alba says a teenage crush on a bisexual drag queen prompted her to distance herself from the church.

The "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" star, 33, recalled her experience in an intimate new interview with Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast.

"I fell in love when I was 16 and had this major crush on… I guess he was a drag queen? He was bisexual and a ballerina, and this was while I was at the Atlantic Theater Company in Vermont," she said. "We used to go to this gay club and I’d dance with him all night, four nights a week."

She went on to note, "I was so in love with him and thought, 'There’s no way this guy’s going to hell,' because in my church, it was, 'Anybody who’s gay is going to hell' and 'Premarital sex is evil,' and I thought, 'There’s no chance! This guy is amazing!' So that went right out the window."

Alba has previously spoken out on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The actress reportedly appeared at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles in both 2006 and in 2009.

She shared similar sentiments in a 2006 interview with Elle magazine, saying that she was bothered by the church's stance on both premarital sex and homosexuality, as well as the lack of strong female role models in the Bible.

"I thought it was a nice guide," she said at the time. "But it certainly wasn't how I was going to live my life."

Stacy Keibler Welcomes Baby Girl Ava Grace With Jared Pobre

Congrats go out to Stacy Keibler!

The wrestler-turned-TV host welcomed a baby girl named Ava Grace with her husband Jared Pobre on Wednesday, Aug. 20. Keibler, 34, took to her website to share the happy news, posting a photo of three hearts in the sand and writing, “Jared and I have been blessed with the new love of our lives. Ava Grace was born at home on Wednesday. We’ve never experienced a level of joy and happiness like this before! Thank you so much for all of the special wishes and positive energy.”

Keibler, who formerly dated George Clooney, married Pobre during a private beach wedding in Mexico, in March 2014. She announced her pregnancy shortly after tying the knot.

“Jared is the most thoughtful, loving, kind person. I couldn’t ask for a better father for my children. Our bond is so strong and special and getting pregnant has made it even more so," she told Fit Pregnancy in May of her relationship with Pobre. "It’s been so much fun preparing to become new parents together."
