EAGLE PASS, Texas (Border Report) — Inside the only migrant shelter in this remote South Texas border town, asylum-seekers are crammed arm to arm on picnic tables, colorful undersized children’s plastic chairs and donated wooden church pews waiting for transportation and other help.

The Mission Border Hope warehouse-style facility is noisy. The concrete floors are bare.

Information is posted on one wall-sized billboard with dos and don’ts in America.

And all anyone wants is to find a way out of this dusty border town and get to U.S. cities beyond.

“We help them to do their travel arrangements so they can go to their final destinations. An average length of stay is five to eight hours. We offer meals, showers … we offer clothing, hygiene kits so they can wait. We have technology so they can communicate with their family members,” Mission Border Hope Executive Director Valeria Wheeler told Border

It may go down as our most gradual kitchen renovation ever, but almost exactly two years into living here (we hit that milestone last Saturday!), our kitchen is officially DONE! New cabinets? Check. Tiled backsplash to the ceiling? Yup. Quartz countertops and a sink that’s 3X deeper than the overmount sink of yore? Affirmative.

New hidden range hood? You betcha. More functional storage in the form of additional drawers, new upper cabinets, and a generously sized pantry cabinet? Yessir. Tons of before & after photos? That’s what this post is for! Plus we’ve got a full budget breakdown for you. So in the illustrious words of Tiesto, let’s get down to business.

Bethenny Frankel is topping up her tan in a swimsuit and showing that business is definitely “personal.” The 41-year-old reality star and entrepreneur has already made headlines this week for looking camera-ready as she arrived at CBS This Morning studios, although it was a more casual vibe on her Instagram today.

Bethenny posted while showing off her new book, Business is Personal: The Truth About What It Takes To Be Successful While Staying True To Yourself.

The title might be a mouthful, but it was easy-going as Bethenny posted downtime photos while reading her book. The Skinnygirl CEO flashed hints of a green and strappy swimsuit as she leaned back in a sunchair and against a white towel, also going near makeup-free.

Going for selfies, the hard-hitting Bravo face sent out a soft smile from behind

He’ll go down in history as the first composer to win a Grammy for scoring a video game.

This Sunday, Christopher Tin premieres “To Shiver the Sky” live at The Anthem in D.C.
