Jeopardy Posed a Question About Dane Cook’s Convicted Half-Brother — See His Shocked Reaction

Dane Cook was forced to relive an embarrassing family incident while watching Jeopardy this week.

The actor and comedian, 46, posted a hilarious response on Twitter after his half-brother, who went to jail for embezzling millions of dollars from Cook, was used as the basis for a question on the popular game show.

“I love Jeopardy, I can just watch it and get away from it all,” Cook jokes at the beginning of the video.

The clip then cuts to the television show, where the question (or answer, in Jeopardy terms) pops up on screen: “Dane Cook’s half-brother and business manager stole millions from the comic, this crime of misappropriating bank funds.”

A contestant then correctly responds, “What is embezzlement.”

The video ends with Cook staring into the camera, looking crestfallen and betrayed.

In 2010, his half-brother was sentenced to five to six years in prison for embezzling millions of dollars from Cook while working as his business manager, PEOPLE reported at the time.

Darryl McCauley, 45, pleaded guilty to 27 counts of larceny over $ 250, three counts of forgery, embezzlement and other charges, the Boston Globe reported. At one point, McCauley wrote out a check for $ 3 million to himself from Cook’s account.

McCauley served as Cook’s business manager from the early 1990s until December 2008. He began siphoning Cook’s funds into his personal accounts beginning in 2004.

The former corrections officer was sentenced to another 10 years of probation after his release from jail. He was also ordered to make restitution to Cook.

McCauley and Cook had the same mother, Donna Cook, who died in 2006.

Reporter’s Reaction To ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Ride Is A Joy To Behold

Cory James will likely think twice about broadcasting live from a theme park ride again.

The news reporter for ABC30 gave viewers a preview of the revamped “Guardians of the Galaxy”-themed ride at Disney’s California Adventure Park on Friday.

But it’s his terrified reaction to the experience that’s now going viral.

Hilarious video shows him screaming as the elevator-style ride goes up and down. Making it funnier still is the composed nature of his fellow passengers, who appear totally tranquil in comparison.

“This was not a good idea,” says James once the ride, which opened Saturday, has “thankfully” ended.

He later lightheartedly tweeted about the ordeal being “traumatic.”

Channing Tatum And Jenna Dewan’s Daughter Had The Best Reaction To ‘Step Up’

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan clearly have a funny little girl on their hands. 

During an interview with HuffPost on Build Series Friday, Dewan told a funny story about the first time the couple’s almost 4-year-old daughter, Everly, watched “Step Up.” It was accidental, and it didn’t go over too well. 

As the “World of Dance” host and mentor explains it, the family was vacationing in Mexico when they turned on the TV and “Step Up” came on. 

“It was so funny, we were like, ‘Everly, Everly, look! It’s mommy and daddy!’ At first she didn’t think it was us,” Dewan said. “She’s like, ‘That’s not you guys.’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s us, Evie, it’s me!’ And then she goes, ‘Can we watch something good?’ Just like that, and we were humbled. One day she’ll maybe appreciate it on a different level, but yeah, she’s not so into it.”

We had to. #stepup10years

A post shared by Jenna Dewan Tatum (@jennadewan) on

To be honest, both Channing and Jenna are a little iffy about watching their on-screen performances in the 2006 film, which launched their careers and their relationship. 

“We both cringe because … we’re just so baby new ― our acting, we’re like, ‘What are we doing there?!’ Dewan joked. “It’s so sweet. We were talking about it the other day, like, ‘Do we remember that routine at the end?’ I think when it was the 10-year anniversary we did the lift outside in our yard just to prove that we could still do it!” (They can still do it — watch the video above.

As for that other dance movie her dad’s in, Everly will “have a lot of questions” when she finally gets to see it, Dewan says. 

“We got to show [’Magic Mike’] to her before one of her friends at school is like, ‘I saw this movie your dad’s in…’ She’s been at rehearsals so there’s a part of her that probably gets it.”

5-Year-Old Who Had Heartwarming Reaction to Heart Transplant Is Now Rejecting New Organ

Two weeks ago, 5-year-old Ari Schultz received a heart transplant after spending 211 days at Boston Children’s Hospital. Ari’s heartwarming reaction to his transplant quickly went viral.

But Ari’s status has taken a turn for the worse post-surgery as his parents Mike and Erica Schultz reveal that he’s experiencing acute rejection of his new heart.

“He went downhill and needed operations and procedures every day this week,” Erica wrote on the family’s blog Echo of Hope.

Yet he’s still staying strong.

“He’s being brave and he’s teaching us how to be brave,” Erica said in a new video they posted on the blog.

To make matters worse, the Shultz’s have discovered a dangerous black mold problem in their home. A contractor told them they had a “sick house” and that it needed to be torn down.

According to the family, insurance will only pay to remove the mold, not fix the underlying issue. A GoFundMe page which started off a fundraising tool for Ari is also now raising money so the family can build a new home.

“The Schultzes need to get Ari well, but at the same time, they need to find a place to live, and then need to rebuild their house for their family, including their other two small children Lexi and Eli,” part of the page reads.

“I bumped into a fellow heart dad and good friend also living at the hospital long-term with his son,” Mike wrote in a blog post. “We talked about how, when faced with major life challenges, our inclination as men is to bear down, work harder, fix problems, and don’t ask for help.

“But we both learned that if we want to help our families now, it’s too heavy a weight to bear alone. Yet it’s still our job to man up and fix the problems. To do that, we need to learn from our sons about being brave, and about what manning up really means.”

Mom Of Boys Has Epic Reaction To Learning She’s Having A Girl

A Kansas City mom is going viral because of her strong reaction to learning the sex of her unborn baby.

On Sunday, blogger Egreis Gjergjani posted a video from her “gender reveal” party on Instagram. Egreis and her husband Jeremy ― who have two sons, ages 1 and 3 ― cut into a cake and found that the frosting was pink for a baby girl. 

As the video shows, the expectant mom was floored … literally.

And I'll end up as a meme somewhere. Fml! We're having a GIRL!!!!!

A video posted by Egreis Gjergjani (@thestilettomeup) on

Egreis’ Instagram video has been viewed nearly 700,000 times. 

She told The Huffington Post she and her husband weren’t planning to have any more children after their “two amazing sons,” and this third pregnancy was a total surprise.

“Since I’ve had two boys so far, I genuinely did not think I would have a girl,” the mom said. “I even started a children’s couture line, Itty Bitty Toes, that specializes in handmade dresses for little girls. It was my way of experiencing what having a little girl would be like.”

It's official!!!! Egi is having a GIRL #girl #suchasurprise #soexcited #thanksforthecakemom

A photo posted by Elina (@linerss55) on

Learning that she would soon have a “mini me” to dress in her designs was “an unbelievable feeling,”  she added.

Egreis posted two other videos from the party. One shows the moment before the big reveal and the other shows a prank her friend played on her. Egreis and her husband thought they were going to learn the sex of their baby with a balloon reveal, but it turns out the balloons were pink and blue. 

“My best friend is evil lol,” the mom wrote in the video caption.

My best friend is evil lol @linerss55

A video posted by Egreis Gjergjani (@thestilettomeup) on

This was torture

A video posted by Egreis Gjergjani (@thestilettomeup) on

Egreis, who is originally from Albania, is due in June. She said she’s been touched by the kind comments from strangers who watched her big reveal video. 

“So many of them have shared tears of joy with me,” she said. “That’s the beauty of humanity. To be able to relate to another human being, without ever knowing them, simply because you can feel the happiness through a video.”

Egreis has enjoyed re-watching the video and looking at her son George’s reaction. “He knows mommy is having a baby but had no idea really what was going on,” she explained. “He just thought we were celebrating something with cake … I laugh when I see George’s face the entire time. He’s just so confused, wondering what is wrong with the cake!”

Ultimately, Egreis says the source of her joy is simple “To be able to carry a child is a blessing, she said, adding, “That initial discovery of your child’s gender is an amazing feeling. It doesn’t matter if it is boy or girl, just that initial moment of knowing what you’re going to have makes it all so real.”

Celine Dion Had The Best Reaction To One Of Her Fans Getting Engaged

Celine Dion unknowingly photobombed a fan’s proposal on Friday, and her reaction to the surprise was simply perfect. 

Nick Janevski scored backstage passes and a meet-and-greet with Dion for his girlfriend Austin McMillan, who is a huge fan of the “My Heart Will Go On” singer, before her residency show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. When it was their turn to meet the star, Janevski got down on one knee and popped the question right in front of Queen Celine herself.

“Celine Dion is about the only person I wouldn’t mind photobombing the pictures of our proposal,” McMillan wrote on Instagram. “I’m still floating around in the clouds over here feeling like it’s a dream!! My heart is so happy!!”

McMillan told Cosmopolitan that she was “completely shocked” ― so much so that she was actually left speechless. 

“I didn’t even say ‘yes’ [right away]. That’s why [Dion’s] face was like that,” she said. “We were taking a picture and all of a sudden he gets down on one knee. I froze. I didn’t say anything, I just smiled. Two minutes went by and she got really nervous ― she hid behind a curtain! She was like, ‘This is embarrassing.’ I just kissed him.”

The bride-to-be said the whole thing was “kind of a blur” but that her idol was super sweet.

“My mom raised me listening to Celine because she is a big fan of hers too!” McMillan told The Huffington Post. “It was incredible to meet her in real life. She is so sweet and genuine and hilarious!”

“She said that she wished us a long and happy marriage like she had with her husband,” the bride-to-be told Cosmopolitan. “She complimented my ring and also asked if she could come to the wedding.”

When Celine asks if she can come to your wedding, the answer is always a resounding, “HELL YES!”

Kenneth Cole retail stores have expanded throughout the United States and abroad in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. The Kenneth Cole Catalog mails to over three million consumers a year, and the award-winning Kenneth Cole and Reaction websites receive thousands of hits per day. Kenneth Coles marketing savvy has earned the Company a renowned image as a forerunner of fashion and trends. His controversial advertising campaign has garnered worldwide attention for its humor and social consciousness. In 1985, Kenneth Cole was the first member of the fashion community to take a public stand in the fight against AIDS. Since then, he has continued to support the global fight through both personal and corporate initiatives, including the dedication of an ongoing portion of marketing budget to public awareness initiatives.

About Kenneth Cole Ingenuity goes a long way toward compensating for lack of capital, an axiom Kenneth Cole proved back in the early 1980s when he launched his fledgling shoe store out of a borrowed truck parked along a fashionable Midtown Manhattan street. Gaining a parking permit required a clever ruse. Cole added the word Productions to his company name, reinvented himself as a film director, hired models as actors, and got a license to shoot a film appropriately titled The Birth of a Shoe Store. Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc. (the tongue-in-cheek name remains to this day) may not have produced much actual film that day, but it did sell an impressive number of shoes. Since those early years, Kenneth Cole has expanded its product line, adding high quality clothing, accessories, and watches-all infused with the same great contemporary urban style. Kenneth Coles attractively-priced watches are a smart blend of simplicity, function, and fashion. Innovative twists are added to basic lines to create new sophisticated classics with street-savvy appeal. All Kenneth Cole watches are rated water resistant to at least 30 meters.

Laverne Cox’s Reaction To Caitlyn Jenner Reveals The Impossible Expectations Trans Women Face

There has been a din of voices — many of them cisgender — weighing in on Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair reveal. The majority of commentary has been support and praise. Aside from the usual string of transphobic comments from Internet trolls, most reactions have been positive, revolving around Jenner’s bravery, beauty and “realness” — concepts that the cis mainstream often clings to when embracing trans women. So when Laverne Cox posted a Tumblr blog yesterday celebrating Jenner, but also unpacking the politics of beauty surrounding Jenner’s warm reception, it was an interesting moment to gain real perspective from a trans woman.

“Yes, Caitlyn looks amazing and is beautiful,” Cox wrote, “But what I think is most beautiful about her is her heart and soul.”

caitlyn laverne

Cox argued that the emphasis on trans women’s beauty can be dangerous, writing, “There are many trans folks because of genetics and/or lack of material access who will never be able to embody [cisnormative beauty standards]…we should be seen as ourselves and respected as ourselves.”

Too often, mainstream acceptance is based on how traditionally feminine a trans woman can look, and often, a lack of material access, or a lack of desire to appear traditionally feminine makes it harder to achieve that acceptance. There’s no denying that wealth and whiteness inform Jenner’s positive and groundbreaking public reception.

What is perhaps most interesting about Cox’s commentary, is how just beneath the surface it seems to address (and maybe even critique) the parallels and differences between her own journey and Jenner’s.

“I have always been aware that I can never represent all trans people,” Cox writes, a sentiment she’s expressed before to address the criticism she’s received surrounding her celebrity.

Cox has an enthusiastic following, but she’s been called out in the past for being a “bad” feminist or a “bad” trans activist. In 2010, She got flack for allegedly perpetuating patriarchal ideals of womanhood on the reality series “TRANSform Me,” where she and two other trans women instilled cis women with confidence via feminizing makeovers that included getting rid of “boy clothes that women should not wear.”

In April, she appeared nude in Allure magazine, and the photo shoot was both praised as an empowering moment for trans women of color, and drew ire from feminist critics, most notably the blog feministcurrent. Blogger Meghan Murphy wrote: “So we are to believe that…achieving a ‘perfect’ body, as defined by a patriarchal/porn culture, through plastic surgery, then presenting it as a sexualized object for public consumption equates to ‘radical self-acceptance?”

At her talk at The New School last October with bell hooks, the feminist author praised Cox as a “goddess for justice,” but in the same breath accused her of conforming to Eurocentric and patriarchal ideals of beauty with her high heels, designer dresses and signature blonde wigs.

Jenner, on the other hand, has not received nearly as much criticism about her traditionally feminine appearance. Some have suggested that there’s a double standard in the way Jenner has been accepted vs. how Cox has been, that as a white woman Jenner has been afforded less scrutiny and more accolades, and that her cover photo (as Marc Lamont Hill put it on Twitter) has “smuggled in the same old cis/Eurocentric narratives about womanhood.”

Of course, the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Jenner’s transition is ultimately a good thing, and it makes sense. She’s older, she was once a beloved Olympian who represented the epitome of hypermasculinity, and has been a reality TV star connected to one of the most talked-about families in America for the last nine years.

But whether intentional or not, the image of Cox’s Time magazine cover beside Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover, speaks volumes. The timing of Cox’s blog post, and its simultaneously celebratory and critical tone, sparks questions about how the narratives of visible trans women are constructed. The Jenner buzz has a lot to do with celebrity culture and the current conversation around trans people, but it also brings up questions about race and privilege that have yet to be addressed in a meaningful way.

And yet, it’s difficult to know where and when it’s right to leverage these kinds of critiques. Did Cox’s essay detract from Jenner’s history-making moment? As it critiqued the beauty-conscious culture that informed support for Jenner, was it also critiquing her glamorous look? It’s hard to say.

Defending herself last year against bell hooks’ accusations that her feminism is compromised by her highly feminine presentation, Cox said: “This is where I feel empowered, ironically, and comfortable. I think it’s important to note that not all trans women are embracing this, but this trans woman does. And this trans woman feels empowered by this.”

Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover, similarly, is an empowering moment — even as we complicate its implications. That, perhaps, is the biggest takeaway from Cox’s essay. The expectations put on the current group of visible and successful trans women, both white and WOC, are becoming increasingly unrealistic.

Why is it the responsibility of trans women, as they knock down doors, to also subvert gender norms, to smash the patriarchy, and to defy deep-seeded standards of beauty? It isn’t, and it shouldn’t be. Cox, Jenner, and all trans women should have the freedom and the agency to make their own decisions, and to walk in their own truths. There’s a larger conversation to be had, of course, about what Jenner’s Vanity Fair spread means going forward: how it will trickle down to less privileged and visible trans people, and if it will in fact effect political change. Caitlyn Jenner has cited Laverne Cox as an inspiration to her, and in spite of everything, there’s a power in that. Today, Jenner has not only graced the cover of a respected mainstream magazine and garnered the support of millions of people. Finally, she is being seen, and heard, on her own terms.

Gigi Hadid’s Reaction to Not Being in the Victoria’s Secret Show Will Make You Love Her Even More

Before the Victoria’s Secret runway show this December, I would’ve put money on Gigi Hadid showing up. She’s gorgeous, has a great bod, and is liable to go viral. When she wasn’t confirmed to walk, I was seriously surprised (though she’s since been named as a face of Pink). Then yesterday, while reading this awesome interview Lauren from the celeb team did with Gigi’s mom (and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star) Yolanda Foster, I found out that Gigi totally wanted to be in the show and was bummed not to book it.


A photo posted by Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid) on

“Gigi worked so hard to get the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and she didn’t get it. But you know what? That’s just life. She was sad,” Yolanda told Lauren. “She was boxing at Gotham gym every day and in great shape, and it seemed like a perfect fit. But you know what? It ended up not to be. And rather than go, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry,’ I said, ‘Hey, Gigi, that’s life, baby. We’re not always going to get what we want, and this is not a rejection of you, Gigi, as a human being. This is just redirection for you into something that’s going to be much bigger.’ She looked at me like, ‘What do you mean?’ And I go, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll happen at another time. It wasn’t meant to happen today.'”

So, firstly, I adore Yolanda and think she lives every inch of her life with so much grace—this whole exchange is parenting 101 if you ask me. Beyond that, I love how real-girl Gigi’s response to not getting the show was. She was bummed, pure and simple, but didn’t throw any diva moves or get angry. Instead of a spoiled celebrity response, she reminded me of myself and all my girlfriends who have had an experience of not getting a job, acceptance letter, or role in the ballet production (OK, that’s personal).

Are you as impressed by Gigi’s low-key response as I am? Can you remember not getting something you really wanted?

These Women Kept Their Maiden Names And This Was The Reaction

Following the marriage proposal, brides-to-be are inevitably asked this polarizing question: Are you changing your name?

For some, the answer is an easy “yes.” For those who are on the fence however — or those who simply want to keep the name they were born with for personal or professional reasons — it’s a bit more complicated.

A Reddit thread emerged recently asking women who kept their maiden names to elaborate on their experiences. This is what they had to say:

1. You might be called a “feminist bitch.”
“My husband took my last name. His father was totally okay with it … His mom, however, pitched a fit and almost didn’t come to our wedding. She called me a ‘feminist bitch,’ even though it was her son’s idea and had nothing to do with gender issues and was really angry about it … after six years of marriage, she sends letters and cards only to his first name, and won’t write our last name for him.”

2. Some people might freak out…
“People are generally okay with me keeping my name, but when we would tell people we were considering him changing his they freaked out. I had several men tell me I was taking away his dignity and making him my woman. It’s ridiculous how tiny, stupid traditions can really pinpoint the sexist nature of our society.”

3. But others will surprise you.
“Strangely, even in my small town that is very traditional and not the most open-minded, people were generally understanding.”

5. Owning your decision is the best course of action.
“I’m Hispanic and have 5 names, so IDGAF about more names, but quite enjoy mine and want one name throughout academia, so people kind of let it be. Some thought it was weird, others didn’t care, but at the end of the day, it’s my name and it’s staying that way.”

6. Some things, like traveling, become more difficult.
“Not having the same name is a bit difficult when traveling sometimes. We have bought plane tickets together, selected our seats next to each other, and then arrive at the airport to see that one of us was moved … Crossing borders and coming back into the country gets double-takes … there’s almost always a question or a statement of ‘oh, you have different last names.’ I’ve pondered making a shrunk-down copy of our marriage license and laminating it for situations like that.”

7. And your parents may get confused.
My parents never quite figured out what to call me. They would address cards to us as his full name & my first name, like Mickey Mouse & Minnie. This is despite the fact that my name never changed, and they could just address the letter to the name they gave me at birth.”

7. Not everyone will agree with your choice…
“Online is the worst. I once got ranted against for hating traditional men (I don’t). People in real life actually told me I was a bad mom for not having one family name. That hurt a lot.”

8. But don’t feel pressured to change your mind.
“A lot of people told me something along the lines of, ‘But you have to!’ I asked why every time. Every time they said, ‘That’s just how it’s done.’ I told everyone that wasn’t a good enough reason for me.”

9. If your partner loves you, he’ll be happy with your decision.
“I told my boyfriend that if we ever got married I would not change my name. His response: ‘Ok, doesn’t matter to me, I don’t want to change my name either’. That was that.”

10. Some family members won’t know how to react.
“I’m not sure our families have quite figured out how to address cards to us, but other than that there’s been no response or comments on it.”

11. Politely correcting people will become second nature.
“Sometimes people make the mistake of assuming we have the same last name, but we either just let them assume what they want or politely correct them and so far nobody has freaked out or anything.”

12. Just ignore the ridiculous questions you may be asked.
“My husband didn’t really care one way or the other. I actually appreciated his indifference. He rightly saw that my name was mine and what I did with it was my decision. Our family, on the other hand, had some issues … Some of his relatives actually asked if it was legal for me to keep my maiden name.”

13. It may be awkward at times…
“General response… is ‘oh,’ a cough, and then a bit of awkward silence. So I go back to whatever I was doing and it passes.”

14. But some people will really respect you for it.
“I kept my last name and most females my age that I talked to about it were surprised. It was almost always immediately followed by, ‘That’s so awesome–I changed my name, and I like it, but I think it’s really cool that you kept yours.’ I never got a snooty response.”

Jennifer Lawrence Had The Best Reaction To Seeing Lupita Nyong’o At The SAG Awards

Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong’o are the top two contenders to win Best Supporting Actress at the 86th annual Academy Awards on March 2. Lawrence, who stars in “American Hustle,” won the supporting-actress award during the Golden Globes on Jan. 12, but Nyong’o, who makes her screen debut in “12 Years A Slave,” took home top honors during Saturday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Not that Lawrence and Nyong’o are taking the competition to heart. Before the SAG Awards ceremony, the young actresses ran into each other on the red carpet, and thus created the best photo of the night.

More of this at all future awards show, please, followed by a movie about Lawrence and Nyong’o hanging out and being great.

Sandra Bullock’s Reaction To An Oscar Nod Is One That All Moms Will Definitely Understand

Being nominated for an Academy Award is, obviously, a huge honor that puts actors and actresses on a whole new level professionally. But, when you’re also a parent, Oscar doesn’t change much.

Sandra Bullock told the New York Times, in reference to her Best Actress nomination for “Gravity”:

“I don’t think it ever stops being an absolute thrill, but I do have an immediate leveler… I still have to get up and make lunch for a little person, and pray — please, dear God — that he eats something I put in his lunchbox today.”

Bullock adopted Louis Bardo Bullock in January, 2010 — just two months before winning her first Oscar for Best Actress in “The Blind Side.” Soon after, she told People about life as a mom: “You wake up, you feed, you burp, you play, you do laundry … I’m still in that stage where I’m just amazed with him and at life.”

All together now. Stars, they really are just like us.

Flabbergasted Little Girl Meets Dad’s Twin For The First Time, Has The Perfect Reaction (VIDEO)

When a baby met her dad’s identical twin for the first time, she reacted in the only logical way — with a whole lot of confusion and cuteness. Flabbergasted, her eyes wide like saucers, the little girl looked from daddy to uncle, and back again.

Since being uploaded Saturday, this video of her has racked up more than 670,000 views via Liveleak.com.

“Oh, my baby’s so confused,” we hear in the background.

Well, wouldn’t you be?
