Manti Te’o has spoken out about the Lennay Kekua death hoax, as it’s now been verified that the Notre Dame linebacker was never dating a Stanford student by that name last year.
But the Heisman Trophy finalist is denying reports that he played a role in duping America, instead releasing a statement that says he fell victim to someone on the Internet.
“This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicatingMore >
A look back at this epic year in celebrity news would not be complete without reflecting upon some of the brightest stars who said goodbye to us in 2012.
Here are 12 of the most notable pop culture figures – from singers to actors to authors and even historical figures – who passed away this year:Donna Summer – Last Dance
12. Donna Summer, disco’s queen, became synonymous with an entire genre of music with hits like “Love to Love You Baby” and “Last Dance.”
11. Ray Bradbury was an author ahead of even his sci-fi time.
10. Jenni Rivera. The popular Mexican singer-actress wasMore >
Chad Johnson can no longer be seen doing the deed online, thanks to an angry cease and desist letter sent to the two websites who initially shared that imagery.
Two blogs posted images of a three-year-old video showing the longtime NFL star all kinds of up in some heavily-tattooed female on Christmas Day.
Nice stocking stuffer. They caved quickly to legal pressure, TMZ reports.
After receiving a pissed off letter from his lawyer claiming the Chad Johnson sex tape was stolen property they did not have the right to publish, the video was yanked.

We all know Viagra can help men score.
But can that little blue pill make a difference when an NFL running back needs to cross the goal line in a very difference sense?
Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall made headlines today when he told reporters of a certain performance enhancing drug:
“I’ve heard of some crazy stories. I’ve heard guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin… some crazy stuff.”
However, the company behind this magic medicine says any athlete popping its drug should be aware:
The pills “indicated solely for theMore >
Following last night’s somewhat surprising Dancing With the Stars results, Gilles Marini and Kirstie Alley are out and only five All-Stars remain in the hunt.
Two Olympians. One NFL great. One soap opera staple. One winner of The Bachelor who got dumped for the runner-up. It’s a diverse and talented field!
Melissa Rycroft has dominated in the past two weeks, but Apolo Ohno, Emmitt Smith, Shawn Johnson and Kelly Monaco are all forces to be reckoned with.
It’s DWTS: All-Stars, after all. Only the creme de le creme came to play this fall … well, and Bristol Palin. Anyway, withMore >

Things got pretty heated last night during the Patriots-Ravens game on Monday Night Football, with the Baltimore crowd erupting into a boisterous “bullsh*t” chant at one point.
Which NBC aired in all its glory, uncensored:Ravens Crowd Bullshit Chant
Convinced that the maligned replacement refs blew a call (the regular refs are currently in a labor dispute with the NFL), Ravens fans called BS … loudly and clearly.
NBC play-by-play man Al Michaels noted, “It’s the loudest manure chant I’ve ever heard.”
Indeed. Whether the FCC responds with the largest fine is the bigMore >
Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore are joining The Real Housewives of Atlanta!
On Thursday, Bravo announced the revamped cast of the hit show, which is now without Sheree Whitfield as it gears up for its Season 5 premiere in November.
Sheree has been replaced by Moore, 38, who was crowned Miss USA in 1993 and is now works as a film and TV producer via her company, Moore Vision Media.
Porsha Stewart, an Atlanta-raised socialite married to former NFL star Kordell Stewart and mom to stepson Syre, gives the show a second new face this fall.

Yunel Escobar has issued an apology for one of the stranger scandals we’ve seen recently in the world of sports.
The Toronto Blue Jays shortstop donned eye black for his team’s game against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, scribbling Spanish words across the outside that translate roughly to “faggot.”
The ball player was suspended three games for the action.
“I feel bad,” he told the media this afternoon in response to the incident. “I’m leaving my team for something I didn’t intend to do. I have nothing against the gay community and honestly I’m sorry… It was just a joke and it wasn’tMore >
After initially refusing to go along with Evelyn Lozada’s efforts to divorce him, former NFL star Chad Johnson is finally accepting that his marriage is over.
He, too, has filed paperwork, citing the union as “irretrievably broken.”
Johnson filed the papers in a Florida court yesterday, in response to Evelyn Lozada’s filing back on August 14, days after he allegedly head-butted her.
In Chad’s divorce filing, he notes the the couple has a prenup that he believes should be enforced, especially the part about who pays for the lawyers.

Chad Johnson has been formally charged with battery following his alleged attack on Evelyn Lozada last month. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
The former Ochocinco was arrested for domestic violence in Florida after a fight over a condom receipt allegedly got violent and he head-butted his wife.
She filed for divorce days later after less than six weeks of marriage.
Broward County, Fla., officials made the decision to charge Chad today.

O.J. Simpson believes Khloe Kardashian is his daughter and plans on changing his will to reflect this fact.
According to a new story in The National Enquirer, that is.
The same tabloid that first floated the Kardashian-belongs-to-O.J. rumor in January is now fueling that seemingly absurd allegation by claiming Simpson wants to “do the right thing” and leave a sizable chunk of his estate to the reality star.
Moreover, he wants to do it at older daughter Arnelle’s expense, an anonymous insider claims, because Simpsons thinks she has squandered his money on a lavish, drunkenMore >
Evelyn Lozada is ready to break her silence.
The Basketball Wives star has cut herself off entirely from the press since Chad Johnson head-butted her (allegedly), and has not spoken a word to the former NFL standout.
Her media blackout will end with an interview on Good Morning America.
Chad was cut loose by the Miami Dolphins days after his arrest, and VH1 pulled the duo’s reality show. She filed for divorce in the wake of his domestic violence arrest.
Both have been laying extremely low of late.
Evelyn Lozada decided to do her first post-split interview with the ABC morning show becauseMore >
Earlier this summer, Roger Clemens was found not guilty of lying to a grand jury over his alleged steroid use.
But the fireballer apparently is guilty of making like Brett Favre: no, he hasn’t texted a photo of his penis to any young female employees. But he also doesn’t know when to truly retire.
Clemens, 50, has actually signed with the Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League and is expected to start for the minor league organization on Saturday.
Note to Roger Clemens: Stick to golf.

Octomom Nadya Suleman – yes, Octomom is RECORDING MUSIC now – has a new dance track entitled “Sexy Party” coming out in the near future.
The 30-second sneak peek below, which TMZ first posted, is rather amazing, as it features Octo counting in Spanish and plugging her payday loan site.
