Charisma is NOT something you're born with. Lucky for you, you can actually MAKE YOURSELF into a charming person. Here are seven ways to do it:
1. Make a lot of gestures. People apparently respond to really animated people. But don't act like a clown.
2. Have a contagious laugh. A good laugh makes everyone around you want to join in. But a bad laugh can be the death knell. Don't be the person with the irritating cackle that you can hear a mile away.
3. Be touchy. In the good way. Charming people have a light touch and it makes people feel comfortable to get a pat on the shoulder or a tap on the arm. Just don't be a GROPER.
4. Use eye contact. And have a nice, open expression. You don't want to go for a hard, cold poker face.
5. Be outgoing with strangers. People, especially shy ones, appreciate someone who is easygoing and open. Just don't be awkward and overdo the friendliness.
6. Get good at MIMING. That may sound crazy, but stories are better if you act them out with body language. It helps people relate to you and visualize what you're saying. Again, be cool about it . . . don't wave you're arms around like a freak.
7. Have an awesome voice. Good voices are expressive and powerful. They change pitch, tone, and volume with ease.

Her son, Evan, helped Donnie propose: "This weekend I was sitting with Donnie and he went into the other room and out came Evan with a card that said 'Will.' And he ran away and came back with a card that said 'You,' and I knew what was happening and I just started crying," she recounted. "And then he came out with a card that said 'Marry,' but it was spelled 'Mary,' and the last time Donnie came out with Evan and Evan's shirt said 'Me?' and he was holding the ring. He asked, 'Will you marry me?'" After Jenny said yes, 11-year-old Evan yelled out, "I have another dad!" and everyone started crying, she said. No date has been set just yet!

Kanye West may be a whiner when he doesn't win awards, but Ice Cube may have just out-Kanyed him because he's complaining that he lost an MTV Movie Award to the late Paul Walker. Walker and Vin Diesel won Best Onscreen Duo for "Fast & Furious 6" beating out Ice Cube and Kevin Hart for "Ride Along". And he says MTV only gave them the award out of sympathy. He said, "Shame on you, MTV. We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy. We were the best onscreen duo, period." Ice Cube also admitted he left the show halfway through, because he just wasn't into it.He has been going to these shows for 25 years and he figures as soon as you get bored, get up and leave. But Ice Cube later Tweeted that he was joking because he couldn't care less about winning awards. He added, "And Paul Walker fans don't trip. I was a fan too."
