There was wonderful news out of Kensington Palace on Monday, but many of the other top stories on PEOPLE.com this week weren't nearly as sunny.

There was plenty of news that made readers angry and sad, and even the week's most surprising story involved inexplicable cruelty. Thankfully, there was also some comic relief here and there.

Below, check out the five stories that got the strongest reactions on PEOPLE.com this week. And let us know what you think of every story by clicking on the icons at the bottom.

Love Prince George has been a joy for proud parents Prince William and wife Kate, and now they're about to give him a sibling. The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting again, although like last time, the first few months of pregnancy haven't been easy for her.

Wow The most surprising story of the week was also one of the most shocking. Joelle Lockwood, the Indiana mom of two who'd been missing since July 9, was found this week. But what she went through this summer at the hands of an acquaintance was appalling.

Angry Kim Kardashian is no stranger to racy photos. But her revealing photo spread in British GQ this week had many readers seeing red – perhaps from blushing.

Sad The bleakest stories of the week involved the tragic deaths of two talented women. Simone Battle, 25, a member of the girl band G.R.L., was found dead in Los Angeles in what was later deemed a suicide. And in Chicago, beloved theater actress Molly Glynn, 46, died in a freak accident during a storm.

LOL Dating can be tough. But Jarrod Allen knows how to lighten the mood. The 25-year-old Australian has been taking some of the crazier Tinder profile pictures he's seen and recreating them – and they have to be seen to be believed.
