Speaking to What's The 411 correspondent Barbara Bullard, Love Majewski explained the back story that is of interest to many people. Ms. Majewski came to fame through I Married a Mobster, a docu-drama based on her life.

"More than anything, it was very healing, to let out the things that I hadn't been able to say in the past... purging myself of all the negativity," Ms. Majewski said about I Married a Mobster.

The reason for sharing her story is for young women. Ms. Majewski advises young women to give another look at the normal guy.

Ms. Majewski recently created her own cosmetic company, Veritas Cosmetics, and now knows that she can stand on her own. She no longer sees men as a crutch and wants young women to know they can do anything on their own.

Marlena Ortiz, founder of Beating Cancer in Heels, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 25-years-old after cancer went undiagnosed in her body for three years. The diagnosis left Marlena bewildered as to how she could have breast cancer when no one in her family had cancer. Ms. Ortiz learned quickly that the treatment to rid the body of cancer can be very grueling and to feel beautiful during treatment is hard to do.

However, Marlena would be undeterred. She is beautiful inside and out and she would not let cancer take away her feeling of self-esteem. So Marlena put on her high heels and wore her high heels to treatment in order to make herself feel beautiful.

The gift Marlena gave herself, she now gives to other women through the creation of her non-profit organization, Beating Cancer in Heels.

And, it is the gift that keeps on giving. For the second consecutive year, Tene Nicole has made Beating Cancer in Heels, the beneficiary of its breast cancer awareness fundraising effort, Shopping Night Out.
