Michael Lewis perfectly describes Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side: “There was a new force in Michael Oher’s life: a woman paying extremely close attention to him who had an eye for detail, a nose for trouble, the heart of a lion and the will of a storm trooper.”

LLERO: Eve Torres – Kickin’ Ass and Taking Names
It’s that time of year, when the fanboy in many of us emerges for WrestleMania. Although the WWE most likely dominates our brains with images of jacked up men jumping off ropes and enough testosterone to fuel the resurrection of the Trojan War, don’t let your mind play tricks on you. There’s plenty of room for the ladies and they are pretty easy on the eyes. Just ask three-time WWE Diva Champion, Eve Torres. ‘LLERO had an opportunity to pick the brain of Eva the Diva on everything from why she gravitated towards the WWE, leaving the biz in her prime and where life is taking her next.

Yakima Herald Republic: Sibling brings ‘The Blind Side’ message to Yakima
Collins Tuohy knows firsthand about the impact of simply paying attention to someone who has long gone unnoticed. She is the real-life sister of Michael Oher, whose adoption into the Tuohy family and subsequent professional football career were portrayed in the popular 2009 movie “The Blind Side.”
Tuohy (TOO-ie) was in town Monday to give the keynote speech at the annual YWCA leadership luncheon, a major fundraiser for the organization. The Yakima YWCA focuses on women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
“I spend a lot of my life doing what the YWCA does on a daily basis — helping at-risk youth and their families to get back on their feet,” Tuohy, 26, said before nearly 1,000 guests at the Yakima Convention Center. She’s on the board of the nonprofit Making It Happen Foundation, which her family started to reach out to marginalized kids.
