As he enters the final half of his second term, President Obama is inspiring very different reactions from the people he meets.

Last week, Gwyneth Paltrow flirted with Obama after apparently forgetting that she's 40 and not 14, and he's the president of the United States, not a member of One Direction.

Earlier today in Chicago, however, some dude named Mike had a very different reaction to crossing paths with the POTUS, and cautioned Obama against getting frisky with his girlfriend:

After Mike fires off his (hopefully joking) warning, Obama keeps it cool, and gets some laughs from Aia Cooper (the girlfriend) at Mike's expense:

According to law enforcement, Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa reportedly went on multiple dates with the owner of the home she had to be jackhammered out of.

Firefighters had to partially dismantle the brick chimney she had become trapped inside, chiseling it away and lubricating it with dish soap to extricate her.

Ventura County fire Capt. Ron Oatman says first responders arrived on the scene after neighbors' reported what sounded like a woman crying from the roof.

The Ventura County Star reports that Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, 30 was arrested on suspicion of illegal entry and giving false information to police.

A South African judge has sentenced Oscar Pistorius to a maximum of five years in prison in the 2013 culpable homicide case he was convicted in.

The former Olympic and Paralymic sprinter infamously shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp to death at his home, which he said was a tragic accident.

Pistorius' defense team opined that he would likely serve 10 months, or one-sixth of the term handed down by Judge Thokozile Masipa, in prison.

After that, he would serve the remainder under house arrest.

However, a spokesman for South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority said that "The Blade Runner" would likely serve 20 months behind bars.

Pistorius was found not guilty of murder, the most serious charge he faced, but was also given a three-year suspended sentence on a firearms charge.

Despite admitting to multiple instances of child molestation in the 1980s, Stephen Collins will NOT be charged by authorities in New York or Los Angeles.

According to TMZ sources, the statute of limitations has expired for all three alleged cases, which were brought to the attention of law enforcement officials when the following audio went viral this month.

It was recorded by Collins' estranged wife, Faye Grant, in 2012 when she and Collins attended a therapy session together.

In a disturbing, multi-minute admission, Collins talks openly about three girls between the ages of 10 and 13.

He says he exposed himself to all three and he forced one girl to touch his penis, which he described as having a "partial" erection at the time.

According to Seattle-based filmmaker Tracy Rector, a longtime friend of Upham's, it was Robert Upham, the missing woman's uncle who found her.

He had been the organizer of a search party that went looking for her three days ago. Charles Upham, her father, confirmed her identity to police.

"We waited at the site where the team had found the body," said Rector, who also was a part of the ongoing search party, late Thursday evening.

Then "it took about five-and-a-half hours to confirm. Then we gathered around her body to say prayers and now we're all gathered at the church."

Upham's cause of death has not yet been determined.

Sean Johnson, a 19-year-old Brooksville, Florida resident, is accused of violating a defenseless creature sexually in one of the aisles of his local Walmart.

That creature is the small stuffed horse pictured below, with Johnson.

Florida Teen, Stuffed Horse

After stalking and identifying his would-be victim, Johnson pulled out his (if you know what we mean) and put it against the poor stuffed animal's chest.

He believes in foreplay, apparently. But soon things got freak nasty.

Johnson road that horse feverishly to completion, and having finalized his deposit, wrapped the animal inside a comforter he took from a nearby aisle.

Walmart's surveillance video system caught all of this. Per local police:

"Cameras captured Johnson putting the toy covered in ejaculate back on the store shelf next to other items. Those items were contaminated and deemed unsellable."

That's just a waste of a good stuffed toy and blanket right there.

Best-selling author John Grisham is under fire today for remarks in which he implied that some child sex offenders face punishments that too harsh.

He's now backtracking as fast as humanly possible.

Grisham

In a wide-ranging interview on the U.S. judicial system with The Telegraph (UK), Grisham said judges have "gone crazy" over the past 30 years.

By this he means that they're locking up too many people, from white collar criminals to minorities on minor drug charges, and even those who view child porn.

"We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who've never harmed anybody, would never touch a child," he said.

"But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn."

UK model Josie Cunningham, who is no stranger to controversy, is really stirring it up this week by calling breastfeeding ... well, you gotta read her Tweets.

Cunningham admits having smoked and drank when pregnant to drown her sorrows, and contemplated an abortion in order to go on the show Big Brother.

She also got pregnant by Curtis Davies after dating him for 18 months, only it turned out to not be Davies, but a man impersonating the British football pro.

Yes, that happened apparently. The point is, it's hard for her to outdo her own outrageousness. But she did in attacking breastfeeding. What did she say?

Josie Co
  • "I wish people would stop asking if I'm breast feeding like Kimberly Walsh. No I'm not! I think the idea is vile and borderline incest!"
  • "People saying its natural.... Maybe it was before powdered milk - in the same way it was 'natural' to walk around naked before clothes ..."
  • "but you would soon kick off if I started walking around naked. It's time to change."

Kimberly Walsh is a singer and actress in the UK and a noted advocate of breastfeeding. Not surprisingly, she faced some serious backlash over this.
