Year in Review: The 15 Biggest Cast Departures, Ranked This past year was full of TV twists, and some of the most shocking ones came courtesy of breaking news alerts about stars such as Anna Faris and America Ferrera leaving their hit shows. From Justin Chambers' abrupt Grey's Anatomy exit to a pair of parquet-O'd Dancing With the Stars hosts, TVLine has gathered 15 of the biggest cast departures that were announced (or revealed on-screen, in the case of one Good Doctor) during the past 12 months. Some of our picks' final episodes have yet to air, while others' sudden absences will be addressed in the coming year, but they all made headlines in 2020 when they bid adieu to their TV gigs. (Before you ask: Danai Gurira's Walking Dead farewell aired this year, but her departure from the drama was confirmed back in the summer of 2019, making her ineligible for this list.) Elsewhere, the #OneChicago franchise said goodbye to some of its frontline heroes, while a daytime soap icon put her many Days behind her. But even in a year of many unexpected departure announcements, there was only one choice for the No. 1 spot. Review our list of 2020's biggest cast exits below, ranked from least to most shocking, then hit the comments to tell us which ones caught you most by surprise.View the full Article

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
