After weeks of cringe-worthy dates and melodramatic professions of love, "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman is down to her final two. Season 10 of the hit ABC show has found its protagonist, love-hungry assistant district attorney Andi, circumnavigate a sea of mostly white, 30-year old men with chiseled bodies to finally find herself in the scenic Dominican Republic with her final two, Josh and Nick. In last night's episode, Andi painfully let go of Chris, the farmer, just as he saw the light at the end of the tunnel that is the “Fantasy Suite," the show's PG-rated way of telling its audience that months of uncomfortable sexual tension will be put to rest.

She stands just five-feet tall and weighs less than some pumpkins, but that didn't stop Kacy Catanzaro from dominating last night's episode of "American Ninja Warrior. " A Towson University grad, Catanzaro became the first woman to complete one of the final obstacle courses and advance to the show's ultimate challenge, Mt. Midoriyama. Catanzaro, who is apparently 95 percent muscle and 5 percent beaming smile, used skills she honed on Towson's gymnastics team to tackle obstacles such as the salmon climb, the swinging frames, the spider climb, and other feats rarely seen outside of a Spider-Man film.

A former Johns Hopkins gynecologist, Dr. Nikita Levy, might have surreptitiously photographed or recorded the examinations of at least 9,000 patients, lawyers representing his alleged victims said Friday. More detailed allegations emerged as attorneys in a class-action lawsuit announced that a judge had approved negotiations for a group settlement with Johns Hopkins Hospital and its medical systems. Levy, who died in an apparent suicide in February as investigators closed in, had worked at the Baltimore hospital and health system since 1988.

Lauren Cox, the wife of Ravens long snapper Morgan Cox, was not amused by Drake's song about cheating athletes at the ESPYs this week. Cox wrote a rambling blog post Thursday titled " Drake, take your 'side pieces' and shove it " -- a sharp contrast to her other posts, which usually discuss Bible verses. It's a little hard to parse Cox's writing, but apparently she was incensed that the event celebrated Michael Sam coming out as the first openly gay current NFL player while Drake's performance made light of athletes' infidelities.

Three people stood in the basement of a Westport home before 4 a.m. Wednesday to film a stunt in which they planned to test a bulletproof vest. Darnell Mitchell put it on, looked into a video camera and proclaimed himself ready to take "deuce deuce in the chest. " But, police said, Mark Ramiro missed the body armor when he pulled the trigger on the .22 caliber handgun, and he now faces murder charges in the 28-year-old's death. The video ends as Ramiro dropped the gun and both friends rushed to Mitchell's aid. They drove from Ramiro's apartment in the 2200 block of Cedley St. to University of Maryland Medical Center, where Mitchell was pronounced dead within minutes, police said.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - The consensus among fans and analysts heading into Saturday's Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship final between Canada and the United states was that the Americans, dominant all tournament long, were the clear-cut favorites.  Canada, seeking its first gold since 2006, needed to win faceoffs and control possession to keep the ball away from Team USA's stacked offense, which came into the championship game...

Here's a greatly abridged list of facts that set Sean Tuohy Jr. apart from your average reserve on a mid-major college basketball team: Start with the Loyola guard's 23,379 Twitter followers. For a little perspective, the team's star, Dylon Cormier, has 643. Then there are the road crowds, which alternate between calling for Tuohy's entry to the game and booing him like he's J.J. Redick. All of this for a redshirt freshman who's played six minutes in his college career. Oh and three years ago, Tuohy watched Sandra Bullock - he calls her Sandy - win an Academy Award for portraying his mother, Leigh Anne.

Black- and copper-colored beads lay around a puddle of blood in a Northwest Baltimore alley where police said a transgender woman was killed early Wednesday in a crime that bore similarities to the slaying of another transgender woman last month. Baltimore police are investigating whether the death of Mia Henderson, 26, is connected to the killing of Kandy, whose body was found June 3 in a field in Northeast Baltimore. Both were found during the early morning, and police have no suspects in either case.

Fanya O'Donoghue had just learned she was pregnant when she happened to meet a group of nurses at a social gathering. She was looking for an obstetrician, and asked them whom they would recommend. "All six of them said, 'Dr. [Nikita] Levy,'" she recalled. Even now, after allegations that Levy photographed patients during exams, followed by the doctor's apparent suicide last Monday, O'Donoghue can't bring herself to believe those nurses steered her wrong. For her, Levy is still the kind, dryly funny doctor who drove through the "snowmageddon" of February 2010 when she went into labor with her firstborn - who shepherded her through her next pregnancy with twins and celebrated their happy deliveries.

The worlds of pop and classical music do not meet all that often — or all that well, as a rule — but certain artists have proved quite adept at bridging the gap. Ben Folds is one of them.

The tour brings him to Charm City on Thursday for a concert with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, which first joined Folds in a gig nine years ago.
