Gotta Watch: Former child stars against Kirk Cameron

Several of Kirk Cameron’s fellow child stars are now lashing back for comments he made about homosexuals. In March he told CNN’s Piers Morgan that homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to many of the foundations of civilization. He also stars in newly released  documentary where he speaks out on the topic. In a new Funny or Die clip, members of a group calling itself Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron, or CCOKC, try to poke holes in Cameron’s theories.

Chad Ochocinco looking forward to first Super Bowl

It has taken 11 years, but Chad Ochocinco, or Johnson for you old-schoolers, is finally going to the big dance, as he calls it. The only question remaining is will he actually play when his New England Patriots meet the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez and wide receiver Wes Welker were the primary ball catchers in the Patriots' offense this season. That trend continued during New England's two playoff wins. In his one and only pre-Super Bowl interview, Ochocinco opens up on how difficult his first season in New England was, whether he feels he deserves a Super Bowl ring and, of course, his passion for tweeting.

Gotta Watch: More celebrity falls

Shania Twain's tumble at the Country Music Television Awards has given us an opportunity to review a few other celebrity falls from grace. Hers was minor compared to others taken by some of her fellow celebs. What are some favorite celebrity tumbles that come to your mind? Beyonce's wipeout during her concert in Orlando in 2007 is probably high on that list, but others come to mind.

Stumbling with the stars – "Dancing With The Stars" provided quite a few spills this season. Kirstie Alley had a couple on her own but she still made it all the way to the finals before losing to Hines Ward.

Criminal case against Jack Kevorkian began with 1998 video

Jack Kevorkian, who died Friday at 83, began his crusade to give people the option of choosing to end their life rather than continuing to seek medical treatment in 1989.

During the next nine years, at least 130 people used Kevorkian’s "suicide machine" to take their own lives. With the push of a button, patients were able to give themselves a lethal dose of chemicals.

One patient, however, was unable to use the machine. Thomas Youk suffered from Lou Gehrig’s disease. Instead of just helping Youk, Kevorkian administered the drugs himself. Kevorkian also videotaped the procedure and sent the tape to CBS’ "60 Minutes."

In the recording, Kevorkian repeatedly asked Youk, “Tom, do you want to do this? Are you sure you want to go ahead?"

Youk says yes and nods his head. Kevorkian delivers the drugs and Youk soon died soon thereafter. “60 Minutes” aired Youk’s death.

Michigan prosecutors would later use the tape to help convict Kevorkian of second-degree murder in 1999. Kevorkian spent eight years in prison before being paroled in 2007.

We'll start with one that happened earlier this week right here at the CNN Center.

'Marry Me, today and everyday' - Nothing could be more romantic than this surprise proposal. The lead singer of Train sings an acoustic version of "Marry Me" to surprise a soldier's girlfriend as he proposes. Good news! She said yes.

Gotta Watch: Facing the flood; dodging jury duty; Gaga video game backlash

The rising Mississippi and the start of the Casey Anthony murder trial were two of the more popular stories of the week. However many of you were just as interested in Technology Writer Doug Gross' story on Lady Gaga and video games.

The fight against the Mississippi – Leaders in Louisiana are forced to choose between keeping Baton Rouge and New Orleans dry at the expense of people in towns like Stephenville and Morgan City. People in those small towns are going to come up on the short end, and are doing all they can to fight against the Mississippi.

The jury duty dodge – It's being dubbed as the "Trial of the Century," but apparently the only people excited about being there are the reporters. Potential jurors are coming up with every excuse imaginable to get out of serving in the Casey Anthony trial. Take a listen.

Doug Gross fires back – CNN Tech Writer Doug Gross has a few fans and few more enemies who didn't exactly go gaga over his latest article "Five more video games Lady Gaga should be in." Doug discusses some of the reader comments.

Gotta Watch: Dumb criminals

Rarely a day passes by that you don’t come across a story about a thief who bungled the simplest of heists. Check out these three, who reached new depths in criminal ineptitude, including one guy who literally wore his crime on his chest.

Guilt written in permanent ink - This guy thought it would be a good idea to get a tattoo depicting the scene of a murder. It just so happened that the murderer ... well it's him. This cold case had stumped L.A. investigators since 2004, but thanks to his tat, he's now convicted of the crime.

Prom is as sweet as candy literally – A Wisconsin mom thought it would be a good idea to design her daughter's prom dress out of Starburst wrappers. The entire creation took a total of six years to produce. The crafty mom also made a matching vest, shoes and handbag with the same material.

Obama asked if 'don't ask, don't tell' repeal is consistent with same-sex marriage ban

Obama asked if 'don't ask, don't tell' repeal is consistent with same-sex marriage ban

With the coming repeal of the Pentagon’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, gays and lesbians will be allowed to openly serve in the military. Some say this is a step toward a national policy permitting same-sex marriage, while others have argued there’s a difference between being allowed to openly serve in the military and letting same-sex couples marry.

President Obama was asked about parallels between the two issues in a news conference Wednesday, but what do you think? Leave your comments below!

Did Obama flip-flop on Bush-era tax cuts?

U.S. President Barack Obama is going along with a plan that will extend Bush-era tax cuts to wealthiest Americans in exchange for extending jobless benefits for 13 months and lowering the payroll tax by two percentage points for a year.



Do you think the President went back on one of his campaign promises, or was this flip-flop forced? Leave your comment below!
