Sometimes, the worst laid plans turn out the best.

Earlier this month, Elan Spreiser planned to propose to Koren Lockwood on the observation deck at the top of Rockefeller Center. But rain nixed both that plan and his back-up: popping the question on a horse-and-buggy ride.

So while walking near Central Park, Spreiser simply dropped suddenly to a knee and asked for Lockwood's hand in marriage.

She said yes… and a stranger named Jeannae Zuloag just happened to be standing there to capture the moment on camera.

“I immediately was like, ‘They need pictures of this moment, they’re going to want pictures,’" Zuloaga told Today. "I think it was just a magical kind of happenstance."

When a 12-year-old girl posted racy photos of herself on Facebook, her mom was upset. So she beat her HARD and posted a video of THAT on Facebook:

This was not your run-of-the-mill beating, either.

Helen Bartlett whipped her offspring with a strap for several minutes, causing the video to go viral and spark a heated debate over corporal punishment.

Some viewers support the mom's actions, while others are appalled, for obvious reasons - and this isn't even the full-length video she put online.

You can see the uncensored version Barlett shared - and has no regrets about. She says she is "prepared to go to jail" to set her "problem child" straight.

She says she beat her daughter for posting underwear photos and sexting, and did it to keep her off the streets and stop her from getting pregnant.

Noble goals, to be sure ... but seriously?

Ain't nothin' gonna hold her down! Not 50 pounds of butter and not a career-crushing scandal!

Paula Deen is back! (At least in her mind.)

The celebrity chef is kicking off a 20-city live show tour this summer with stops so far planned for Savannah, Atlanta, Nashville, and San Antonio. The show will feature a live cooking demonstration, butter, musical chairs, butter, an audience-participation dating game, and more butter.

"That's the excitement of it all — my fans get to be part of the show," Deen said.

Paula Deen Pleads

Deen's comeback attempt is nearly a year after her career was nearly ended following allegations of racism in the restaurants she owned and her own admission of using a racial slur. 

Deen apologized on both the Today show and in People Magazine, and in the same interview compared herself to football player Michael Sam who came out as gay in 2013.

Very sad news out of North Carolina last week.

A 32-year old woman named Courtney Ann Sanford got into a fatal car accident Thursday in High Point, mere moments after she updated her Facebook status with a positive message.

Authorities tell My Fox 8 that Sanford used her cell phone to update her account with a post about Pharrell’s “Happy,” only to swerve across a median and slam head-first into a truck.

The Facebook text happened at 8:33 a.m. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34 a.m.,” said Lt. Chris Weisner. "In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy."

It's not what you know, it's who you know when looking for a job, as the old saying goes. One enterprising young girl took her job request all the way to the First Lady yesterday.

During a visit for the annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, Charlotte Bell, 10 years old, gave Michelle Obama her father's resume telling the FLOTUS that her dad had been unemployed for three years.

Michelle Obama, poised and obviously moved, gave the girl a hug.

When the girl returned to her seat, Michelle Obama addressed the audience saying, “Well, it’s a little private, but she’s doing something for her dad, right?”

And you thought the Kardashians were desperate for fame!

Josie Cunningham is a 23-year-old "model and call girl" from the UK who wants so badly to appear on the UK version of the popular reality series Big Brother that she plans to terminate her 18-week pregnancy.

Josie spoke with London's Daily Mail this week and revealed her plans to have an abortion while "smoking a cigarette and rubbing her baby bump."

Classy lady or the classiest lady? Josie explains her decision thusly:

"I'm finally on the verge of becoming famous and I'm not going to ruin it now. An abortion will further my career. This time next year, I won't have a baby. Instead, I'll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house."

Jessica Hickey's dad has been asking for a grandchild since his daughter's wedding night. Which is maybe sort of weird, but is mostly just kind of sweet.

Hickey's mother passed away 20 years ago, and Jessica, an only child, grew close to her father as he raised her. She surprised her dad with the news of her pregnancy with a small box containing a pacifier.

At first, he seemed confused, and then he got it.

What happened next just warms our cold, black hearts.

SO. SWEET.

Who doesn't love a good hidden camera reveal, right? Here are a few more to make you laugh, or cry, or both.

Sometimes the Internet is full of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad things. And then sometimes it isn't. 

Such is the case with the viral social media campaign called "Mr. Awesome" which remembers Calder Sloan. At 7 years old, Sloan was a vibrant, kind, and gentle soul, and his life was cut short by an accident at his family's North Miami home. 

But his memory, and his nickname, Mr. Awesome, live on in the hearts and minds of those around the world.

Family friend Jim Cahill suggested on Facebook that to honor Calder Sloan's memory, people should post pictures of themselves with the a self-portrait Sloan drew shortly before he passed away.

"We really believed Calder was going to change the world,'' Chris Sloan said.

"These people we don't even know have just decided to share his love, so to me and my wife, he is changing the world."

For the record, it's cruel to refer to Chrissy Teigen as overweight.

But the same doesn't exactly hold true for Carisa Ruscak, a baby born on Tuesday at Massachusetts General Hospital... who weighed in at 14.5 pounds!!!

She's the second heaviest child to ever come into the world inside that building.

"Everyone in the operating room was like, ‘Oh my God, look at the size of this baby! Let’s get her on the scale, what does she weigh?’” mother Caroline told WHDH, adding:

"It validated me because I was in a lot of pain when I was pregnant, so to hear the size, it made sense."
