Tim Tebow brought tears to the eyes of a few Florida families this weekend when the former NFL quarterback unexpectedly showed up at an Orlando Walmart to pay off their layaway tabs.

Tebow was filming a segment for “Good Morning America,” Sunday as part of week-long series in which the show is going across the country to surprise shoppers by paying off their layaway accounts.

In the segment that aired Monday morning, shopper Jasmine Nunes was approached by Tebow at Walmart in Orlando.

Nunes told Tebow about recent hard times her family had experienced and how much it meant to her to have the $220.02 layaway account paid. Her items included gifts for her nieces and a new nephew who will be having his first Christmas.

“Oh my God, thank you!” she cried, hugging Tebow. 

Later, she called her mother, telling her: “Mom you’re never going to believe what just happened. Tim Tebow just paid my layaway!”

In another segment, Tebow paid off the $701 tab for Damara Jarrett in the same Orlando Walmart.

Jarrett said she is a full-time student who had been in a car accident recently and her layaway items included gifts for her two children.

“You don’t understand how hard I’ve been working,” Jarrett told Tebow after hearing the bill was to be paid. "And then I said I was going to take stuff off [the account] because I can’t afford everything, and then this. Just thank you. I just want to cry."

Kirk Douglas obituary accidentally published by

According to media reports, People magazine’s web site published an obituary on veteran actor Kirk Douglas, who is very much still alive.

According to USA Today, the obit came to the attention of Twitter users on Sunday night. It originally had a publish date of Sept. 29, 2014, but it’s not clear if the article had been publicly viewable since that date.

The story has been removed from the People website, but there are several screen captures of the mis-published obituary available on Twitter.

The 97-year-old actor suffered a stroke in 1996 but has been in good health despite speech difficulties caused by the stroke.

It’s common practice for media organizations to pre-write obituaries for celebrities and politicians. 

As of Monday morning, People has not issued a statement about the report.

'Dancing with the Stars' crowns season 19 champion

Cue the drumroll! The 19th season — yes, 19th season — of “Dancing With the Stars” came to a close Tuesday night. And the winner is… Please be Alfonso, please be Alfonso.

"I cannot believe this! I've wanted it forever!" Alfonso said.

Ailing back and all, fan favorite and former “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star Alfonso Ribeiro and partner Witney Carson tapped, twisted and, well, “Carlton’d” their way to win the coveted Mirror Ball trophy!

Ironically, Ribeiro even revealed that it was that very wild-armed “Carlton” dance move that also injured his back earlier. Well, we’re just glad he was able to pull through.

Ribeiro and Carson outlasted 12 other couples to take the top dancing prize, but there were plenty of other memorable moments from the stars throughout the season.

Like, ahem, ducks on a pond, 17-year-old Sadie Robertson made a splash and certainly toed the line with some of her costumes choices.

That is, she had to pass it by her “Duck Dynasty” dad before jumping out on-stage. Hey, can’t blame a father for looking out for his baby girl.

Plus, she gets huge props for taking the creativity up a level.

And, of course, it IS Hollywood, so everyone keeps prying into their personal lives: will Janel and Valbecome an item off the dance floor or what?

But, sorry to say, gossip hounds, it looks like the good-looking dancing duo is still keeping everyone in the dark for now.

Still, in the end, let’s be honest: this season was really the Alfonso Ribeiro show with more “Fresh Prince” flavor than we could handle.

No matter who you rooted for, the show is still uber popular, as #DWTS trended on Twitter throughout the night.


Why many headlines on Michael Phelps' girlfriend aren't accurate

Trending on Facebook

More popular and trending stories

One of the world's most famous athletes Michael Phelps has quite the history of making headlines away from the pool, but his latest venture into the spotlight involves his girlfriend and a seemingly unnecessary debate over whether she was born a man or woman.

Taylor Lianne Chandler told Radar Online she was born with both sets of reproductive organs, but she identified as a boy until her teenage years. While that's considered being born intersex, you'll note the outlet's headline reads she "Was Born A Man!"

Phelps is currently in rehab and serving a six-month suspension from USA Swimming after police in Maryland arrested him for his second DUI in late September. By far the most decorated Olympic athlete in history, Phelps was in the process of training for the 2016 Olympics at the time of his arrest. (Video viaCNN & ABC / ESPN)

Chandler also told Radar Online she met Phelps in August through the matchmaking app Tinder, and she told him about her past through an email while he was in rehab. She says the Olympian has yet to respond.

She said, “Michael is a brand, and dating someone like me may not be the best thing. I just hope he follows his heart and not what his people tell him.”

And oh, the headlines that followed. Virtually every headline about the revelation to this point says Chandler was born a mana boy or a male. The Daily Mail's headline reads Chandler "admits she was born a male" as though she's done something wrong.

And Chandler does appear to have some real remorse about not telling Phelps a very intimate secret earlier in their relationship, but the gender identity reporting hasn't gone over well with her.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Chandler appeared to reference the Radar Online article when she wrote, in part, "Two steps forward and 100 steps backwards. ... In a world of educated people that had all the facts of intersex and what it means and then to sell a magazine say[ing] Michael Phelps is dating a MAN. I have cried now for an hour."

The Intersex Society of North America tries to combat misconceptions about the incredibly complex issue."Rather than trying to play a semantic game that never ends ... We work to build a world free of shame, secrecy, and unwanted genital surgeries for anyone born with what someone believes to be non-standard sexual anatomy."

Chandler doesn't know if her relationship with Phelps will continue once he leaves rehab.

The Associated Press has released video from a Bill Cosby interview in which Cosby not only refuses to answer questions about recently surfaced rape allegations, but also pressures the AP reporter to 'scuttle' the portion of the interview about the allegations. 

The interview took place on November 6th, but was just released this week. 

"I would appreciate it if it was scuttled. I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious, that it will not appear anywhere."

"I know I didn’t say anything, but I'm asking your integrity that since I didn't want to say anything, but I did answer you in terms of I didn't want to say anything, what value would it have?" Cosby pleaded.

The reporter made no promises and referred those decisions to his editor. 

The AP did not originally release the portion of the interview that addressed the rape allegations, but have now released it in light of additional allegations of abuse against the legendary comedian. 

Will Smith's children give 'immeasurably bizarre' interview

Jaden and Willow Smith, the 16- and 14-year-old children of actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, gave an "exclusive joint" interview to the New York Times' T Magazine that almost everyone agrees is the craziest interview of all time.

Topics of discussion include the unknowability of time, the duality of the human mind, "the melancholiness of the ocean" and much more. 

For example: The first question was, "What have you been reading?" Willow said, "Quantum physics. Osho." Jaden said, “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and ancient texts; things that can’t be pre-dated."

"Every Single Thing About This Jaden and Willow Smith Interview Is Nuts," declared Gawker's Jordan Sargent, who wrote: "There's nothing more I can add to it. Please read the entire thing because these two children are both literally and figuratively our future." 

There were a few things to add. The Daily Dot's Cooper Fleishman turned the sit-down into a "Shakespearean interview," the lines broken into iambic petameter; while a host of news outlets gave us the 5, 6 and 11 weirdest, really deep and/or most enlightening moments from the piece. 

"It is 2014," wrote Mashable's Max Knoblauch. "What a time to be alive."

UPDATE: According to a TMZ  report, former baseball star Jose Canseco admitted that his claim that his  surgically re-attached finger fell off while playing poker was a hoax. Read the original story below.

In a series of tweets Monday,  Canseco said he was thinking of selling on eBay the detached finger and the gun that shot it off.

On Oct. 28, Canseco was cleaning his gun in the kitchen of his Las Vegas home when the weapon fired and accidentally shot off a finger on his left hand, police said. He reportedly had surgery to reattach the finger.

Bizarre Chinese music video like a mash of 'Gangnam Style' and 'The Fox' … but weirder

More popular and trending stories

A music video suddenly making its way around YouTube has people wondering if they've just witnessed the next "Gangnam Style" or, perhaps, have just suffered a psychotic break.

The bizarre music video “Chick Chick” by Chinese singer Rong "Rollin" Wang appears to trying to ride the same viral lightning that led the success of Korean singer Psy and Norwegian duo Ylvis ("What the Fox say?").

Wang is dressed in a white chicken corset as shirtless men in horse masks dance around making barnyard animal noises.

But trying to describe the video is pure folly. It has to be seen to be appreciated.

According to ABC, Wang is singing in Mandarin: ”Mother Hen, Mother Hen,” “Little Chick, Little Chick,” “Rooster, Rooster” and “Who stole my chicken feed?” However, the song's hook is just a series of clucking and squawking noises.

Though the song lacks some of the catchiness that made "Gangnam Style" and "The Fox" hits, it's likely that "Chick Chick" will be seen and heard on a lot of computers around the world this week.
