    By now you've probably heard about the hero NYPD officer who saw a homeless man sitting barefoot in Times Square and decided to buy him a brand new pair of shoes. It was supposed to be the feel-good story to end all feel-good stories this holiday season. But the meet-up between Officer Larry DePrimo and "homeless" man Jeffrey Hillman is starting to look more like a soap opera. Notice how I put homeless in quotes? That's because a day after finding out that Hillman isn't actually wearing those spanking new Skechers, now there are claims that he isn't exactly homeless either. Well, sort of.

    Forgetfulness. It happens to the best of us, doesn't it? Now imagine it's a teacher who has forgotten that she banished a kindergartner to a small, dark room? And by forgetting, I mean the teacher actually left for the day, leaving him to be found, alone and scared, by his parents who ran to the school when their little boy didn't clamber off the bus at his stop. Would you be livid? Me too. And so are the parents of 5-year-old Tanner Cagle, who say their son was essentially locked in a closet by a teacher and left to wet his pants and cry in the dark.

    Since the news broke that Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher had shot and killed girlfriend Kasandra Perkins before later taking his own life, the linebacker has been painted as somewhat of a monster. He's a man who shot, in cold blood, the mother of his child, then killed himself, leaving their 3-month-old daughter orphaned. But new details of the last moments of Belcher's life paint a new picture. Monster is too simple, too easy. Would a monster have leaned over and kissed the woman he'd just shot and apologized to her? Would he have kissed his little girl?

    Kailyn Lowry is one of those reality stars who seems to try to deflect drama instead of courting it. Still, that hasn't stopped the Teen Mom 2 star from taking on her co-stars in a public rant this week. It seems Kailyn is sick and tired of all the scandal, and she would like it to stop right now. She obviously has no control over the tabloids or the fans. So Kailyn is gunning for the people who can at least put a finger in the dyke: the other girls who star on Teen Mom. Just check out what she said on Twitter:

    Is your teenager miserable when you're out running errands? The type of kid who takes control of the radio, whines a bunch about wanting to be somewhere else, and generally makes you wish you'd just adopted a puppy a decade and a half ago and been done with it? Then the "Running Errands With My Mom" rap is for you!  Produced by Cartoon Network and featuring an actual teenager, this hilarious video is proof positive that your kids don't have to be miserable twerps just because you've got them riding shotgun in a (cue kid's shame face) minivan. Behold:

    This may be one of the most disturbing adoption stories I've read in a long time. A man named Terry Achane was away from home on duty as a soldier in the United States Army when his wife gave birth to their daughter and then promptly put the baby up for adoption, allegedly doing so without ever telling Terry it was happening. It goes against everything adoption is meant to do and then some ... Now Jared and Kristi Frei, the people who brought little Leah home and thought she was legally their daughter, are in a fight against a dad who just wants his little girl back.

    All right, why do you send your kids to school? To learn? Or to give their teacher massages and scratch his back? What? It's not the latter? Well, then you better not send your kiddo to Taylorsville Elementary School in Utah. There's a third grade teacher there who was caught ordering his students to scratch his back and rub his feet. And yes, he still has his job.

    Do you have a pack of tissues handy? Go grab them; you're going to need them when you hear about the single dad whose 14-year-old son is in a vegetative state after being hit by a semi-truck while riding his bike. Tim Thomas is working a part-time job and he can't afford to be at his son's bedside every day. After all, he has two kids to take care of in a rough economy. Are you crying yet? Pulling out your wallet?

    Remember the adorable dads who showed us that it's truly sexy to show interest in your daughters' interests by singing the song from The Little Mermaid? They're baaaaack! And this bunch of hurly burly macho men -- even some sexy soldiers out there serving our country -- aren't afraid to let the world know that all THEY want for Christmas is time with their kids! Thrown together by the guys at Life of Dad, the cover of Mariah Carey's Christmas classic, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," is not exactly in tune (hey, they're trying!), but that's besides the point. You have a bunch of men who aren't ashamed to lay it all on the line for the most important people in their lives. Check it out:

    This is the stuff nightmares are made of: a 16-year-old autistic girl was kidnapped by a man who took her home and spent two days brutally raping her. The girl, who has the mental capacity of a 7-year-old, had wandered away from a home for developmentally disabled youth in East Oakland when cops say she encountered Gary Steven Atkinson, a 36-year-old man who has a string of violent felony convictions on his rap sheet. In fact, I look at the string of seriously bad stuff this guy has been involved in, and I have just one question. What the heck was he doing on the streets to begin with?

    Warning! Sticky situation ahead in 5, 4, 3, 2 ... and here we go! A deadbeat dad in Wisconsin has been given a strange sentence from an angry judge. Corey Curtis has been banned from breeding. Got that? No more making babies! At least not until Corey can demonstrate that he will not only support his potential progeny but also the nine kids (by six different women) he already has. Go ahead and say it.

    It's that time of year again, when you have to figure out what the heck to buy for the autistic child on your holiday shopping list. Depending where they are on the spectrum, kids with autism may be after the goodies on the hot holiday toy list, but then again, they may not be! So what are your can't-fail tips for buying them something that will be a hit? The Stir asked moms of some kids on the spectrum for a little help to make your shopping easier this year.

    Brooke Burke has always been one of my favorite celebrity moms. The Dancing With the Stars host is always down-to-earth and self-deprecating in the best way as she shares her parenting struggles online, and her Naked Mom biography is on my "must read" list for any mother. Now she's tackling the challenge of telling her kids about her battle with cancer with the same aplomb we've grown accustomed to getting over at the actress' blog. Burke, of course, has thyroid cancer, caught early and already removed during surgery. But she's also a mom to four kids, and breaking the news of the big C was a big deal in her house.

    How's this for refreshing? The latest hate-filled screed against moms written by a child-free woman actually has a kernel of truth to it! Lauren Passell, a former editor at a parenting magazine, took to her computer to blast off an essay insisting "moms are actually the most selfish people in the universe." Her essay gave little in the way of facts to back up her theory ... surprise, surprise! But the fact is, Lauren Passell could be on to something.

    Police in Colorado Springs, Colorado have a troubling mystery on their hands right now. Who left a newborn baby in a Dumpster in the freezing cold? And why didn't they just leave the helpless little girl at a hospital? After all, the woman who heard noises coming from the trash outside her apartment complex found the little girl, umbilical cord already cut, wrapped in what appears to be a hospital gown. The newborn baby is in a hospital now, where doctors are keeping her under observation as police try to find the people who flaunted Safe Haven laws that would have made this whole thing simple, legal, and most of all ... safe.

    The worst has happened. The search for missing Iowa girls Lyric Cook-Morrissey, 11, and Elizabeth Collins, 9, has officially ended in tragedy. At a press conference this afternoon, police confirmed the bodies found by hunters in the Seven Bridges Wildlife Area are indeed those of the cousins who disappeared in July. Technically, it will take the actual medical examiner's report to give the Cook, Morrissey, and Collins families a positive ID and give police in Evansdale, Iowa a cause of death. But the sure note in the voice of Black Hawk County sheriff's Capt. Rick Abben during this afternoon's announcement left no doubt. These are the girls.

    Gleeks! Did you watch the same episode I did tonight? The Swan Song episode? Did we really see Glee club almost fall apart? And get all the answers to the "are our favorite couples getting back together" questions we've been waiting for? Even if all the answers weren't exactly the ones we thought we wanted (who saw Sam coming out of nowhere? Not me!), let me just say it. The writers just threw us one squirrelly curve ball ... or maybe a few.

    Seventy-one years have passed since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Today is, as then President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, the day that will live in infamy. And it does, even 71 years on. Don't believe it? Just look at these quotes about Pearl Harbor, many uttered seven decades ago but still repeated today, others more recent but evidence that the peaceful Sunday morning shattered by an act of war still resonates, still haunts our American spirit. Paired with photos of the attack, it's hard not to be taken back to the horror of that day.

    Have your teenagers been whining that they want this for Christmas or that for Hanukkah? 'Tis the season ... to get your teen their first job! Yes, the dreaded J-O-B. Dreaded more for parents, I'm finding. Most kids actually can't wait to get out there and work, because they're sick of depending on Mom and Dad to cough up the cash for their newest gizmo or gadget. But there's something about sitting your baby down to fill out their working papers that makes you realize they are growing up before your very eyes. You want to protect your little darling, but you also want them to get off their duff and actually do a little something to get that fancy schmancy game console. So what's your best bet? Maybe this list of perfect "first jobs" will help.

    It has been one crazy ass year for Robert Pattinson and his fans, hasn't it? First that whole cheating scandal, then the rekindling of the romance with Kristen, and finally (FINALLY!) Breaking Dawn 2 hit the theaters. You know what all the members of Team Edward need this holiday season? A re-he-he-eally good gift under the tree! Might actually make up for the whole wedding news (sniff, sniff, waaaaaaaah)? The good news is we've got 'em all here, every bleeding thing your vampire-loving heart desires.
