  • Donald Trump Sues Bill Maher for $5M

    Is this what billionaires do for fun? Donald Trump, the real estate mogul who is worth $3.1 billion according to Forbes, is suing Bill Maher for $5 million for likening him to a monkey.

    Trump called into "Fox & Friends" Monday to say that he's suing the HBO host for going on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" last month and joking that Trump must be "the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."

    Maher was mocking Trump's offer to give $5 million to the charity of Barack Obama's choice if the president released his college paperwork. Maher said he would do the same if Trump proved he didn't descend from an ape.

    According to Trump, he presented Maher with a New York birth certificate affirming his lack of orangutan DNA days after the talk show appearance, but Maher has yet to give him his $5 million (which Trump says he wants to give to charity).

    "We pick up a couple tickets on the weekend when we go to our cabin on the river," said Terri, an office manager with a water company. "It's a weekly thing. We just pick up a few here and a few there."

    Once they brought the tickets to the cabin, they realized one of Stephen's $20 tickets won the $1 million jackpot.

    "I almost had a heart attack," said Stephen, who owns a plumbing company. "I had to have an aspirin."

  • 'Cakes' Star Offers Shunned Couple Cake

    Duff Goldman, star of the Food Network show "Ace of Cakes," has offered to make a lesbian couple their dream wedding cake free of charge after an Oregon bakery denied their order.

    "I said, 'Hey I can fix this problem. Somebody was a jerk to them and I can bake them a cake. That's what I can do,'" Goldman told

    The brides-to-be went to Sweet Cakes, a Gresham, Ore., bakery Jan. 17 to order their wedding cake, but were told the bakery didn't serve same-sex marriages.

    Aaron Klein, who owns Sweet Cakes with his wife, Melissa, told ABC News affiliate KATU-TV he was living in accordance with his religious beliefs when he refused to make the couple a wedding cake.

    "I honestly did not mean to hurt anybody, didn't mean to make anybody upset, [it's] just something I believe in very strongly," he said.

    One of the women filed a complaint Jan. 28 with the Oregon Department of Justice, which is looking into the allegation.

    Tiny Hamster Takes On Kobayashi in 'Hot Dog' Eating Contest

    Takeru Kobayashi has destroyed heaping amounts of food and numerous challengers over the years as a competitive eater. He once ate 110 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

His newest challenger is the hungriest — and tiniest — yet.
