HECTOR “MACHO” CAMACHO HAS DIED :(
Boxing legend HECTOR "MACHO" CAMACHO has died after being shot in the jaw in Puerto Rico last Tuesday. He was 50 years old. Initially, it was thought that he might survive . . . but his condition deteriorated after he went into cardiac arrest. Doctors later declared Camacho brain dead on Thanksgiving and his family decided to take him off life support on Saturday. Camacho was shot while in a parked car with a friend. The friend died at the scene. No arrests have been made . . . but cocaine was discovered in the vehicle, so there's a chance the attack was drug-related.

On Thanksgiving morning, Halle Berry's ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, was dropping off their four-year-old daughter at Halle's house when he got into a FIGHT with Halle's fiancé, Olivier Martinez. Apparently Gabriel took a swing at Olivier . . . but Olivier used to be a BOXER and ended up taking Gabriel down and landing some punches. Gabriel was charged with misdemeanor battery. Here’s some pics of Gabe’s face after all this went down…

LILO JUST GOT $100K TO PAY HER BACK TAXES…FROM CHARLIE SHEEN?
Here's a rare case of CHARLIE SHEEN being the ENABLER, not the enablee. Charlie just gave LINDSAY LOHAN a check for $100,000 to help pay down her IRS debt. She owes $233,904 in unpaid back taxes, so this knocks out about half. Charlie and Lindsay became friends when they were filming cameos in "Scary Movie 5" a few months ago. It's not clear if this is a loan or a gift...
HUGH JACKMAN WASN’T THE FIRST CHOICE TO PLAY WOLVERINE?
BLOSSOM IS SINGLE AND READY TO MINGLE FELLAS!
Last week, right before Thanksgiving, MAYIM BIALIK announced that she and her husband, Michael Stone, are getting divorced after nine years of marriage. Mayim is 36. She and Michael have two sons together, a seven-year-old named Miles and a four-year-old named Fred. Mayim is a HUGE believer in attachment parenting, and wrote a book about it called "Beyond the Sling". She believes in natural births, indefinite breastfeeding, and children sleeping in their parents' bed until they're at least seven years old. She says that parenting style is NOT why she and Michael are divorcing. They cited irreconcilable differences and said, quote, "Relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose."
COREY FELDMAN COULD BE BACK IN THE FORM OF DONATELLO FROM THE UPCOMING NINJA TURTLES MOVIE?
How could MICHAEL BAY turn this down? Bay is making a new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie and one KEY voice actor from the first "TMNT" movie has graciously offered to be a part of it. That actor? COREY FELDMAN. In the first and third "TMNT" movies, Corey was the voice of Donatello . . . he's the "nerdy" turtle who creates machines. And he says he's been in communications with Bay but, quote, "I wouldn't say there has been a formal offer."

THANKS TO ALL THE CRAZIES, BLACK FRIDAY SALES ARE BETTER THAN EVER…
It was a good weekend for the economy as shoppers opened their wallets for both online and in-store purchases. For the first time ever, Black Friday online sales topped $1 billion. According to comScore, Amazon.com was the most-visited retail website on Black Friday, while Wal-Mart’s website was second, followed by Best Buy, Target and Apple’s sites. A survey from the National Retail Federation showed that U.S. retailers' sales over the four-day holiday weekend increased an estimated 12.8 percent. An estimated 139.4 million adults visited U.S. stores and websites from Thanksgiving through Sunday, up from 131 million last year.
IT'S CYBER MONDAY! HERE'S A GOOD DEALS OVERVIEW SITE I FOUND
BUT DON’T WORRY, LOTS OF PEOPLE STILL DID EXTREMELY STUPID STUFF!
This year's Black Friday saw its usual nationwide string of idiocy and violence. A man in Massachusetts went home with the 51-inch TV he'd just bought at K-Mart . . . but WITHOUT his girlfriend's two-year-old son. Shoppers were robbed in South Carolina, Michigan, and Maryland. And in Mississippi, someone dropped a stink bomb of hog pee in a Walmart to try to get other shoppers to leave. And now, a video montage of various people fighting over cell phones this year:
AAAAAAND WALMART WORKERS ACTUALLY KILLED A GUY ON SUNDAY...
SOME A-HOLE NEIGHBOR KILLED A PENSACOLA COUPLE’S PET TURKEY TO COOK HIM FOR THANKSGIVING!

The family found blood and feathers, checked surveillance video, and saw a neighbor and a friend had broken into Tom's pen . . . and SHOT him with a bow and arrow. Police caught the guys as they were taking Tom to be butchered for Thanksgiving. The two have been charged with armed burglary and animal cruelty.
HOPING TO WIN THE $425 MIL POWERBALL? HERE ARE 4 THINGS THAT ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAPPEN…
Nobody won the Powerball drawing on Saturday, so the jackpot's up to 425 MILLION. Or $278 million if you take the lump sum. But your chances of winning it are about one in 175 million. Here are four crazy things that are more likely:
#1.) Hitting a Deer in Hawaii. According to a 2011 study by State Farm, it's the state where you're LEAST likely to do it. Obviously you'd have to BE there first, but the odds are about one in 6,000.
#2.) Dying from a Bee Sting. Your chances are about one in six million, and your chances of dying from a LIGHTNING STRIKE are about one in three million. But your chances of just being STRUCK by lightning are a lot higher. If you live to be 80, you have about a one in 10,000 chance of it happening at some point in your life, according to the National Weather Service.
#3.) Getting Attacked by a Shark. Your odds are about one in 11.5 million. But the odds of dying for ANY reason at the beach are about one in two million.
#4.) Making a Hole in One. For an average amateur golfer, the odds are about one in 13,000. Your chances of getting two BACK-TO-BACK holes are about one in 156 million . . . which is STILL slightly better than your odds for winning the Powerball jackpot.

SOME KIDS IN ORLANDO FOUND A FREAKIN' GRENADE IN THEIR BACKYARD!
SOME DOUCHE GOT HIMSELF ARRESTED FOR TELLING KIDS SANTA WASN’T REAL!
Normally if you tell a bunch of kids Santa isn't real, you're just kind of an a-hole. You're not a CRIMINAL. Apparently, Canada is trying to change that. Last week, a 24-year-old man was at a Christmas parade in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and he was drunk. As a float went down the street with Santa on board, the man shouted at a bunch of kids that SANTA WASN'T REAL. And someone called the cops. The man was TECHNICALLY arrested for public intoxication and violating his probation but we all know he was REALLY arrested for telling kids Santa isn't real. A police officer said the man's hair was gelled to, quote, "look like a set of devil horns" and that he's, quote, "pretty despicable [to] tell kids Santa isn't real."
DON’T FORGET, YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO SPREAD THE HOLIDAY TIPS JUST LIKE CHEER THIS YEAR…
SOME CAPTAIN OBVIOUS RESEARCHERS FOUND THAT WE EVENTUALLY HATE THE INEVITABLE HOLIDAY MUSIC…
Researchers have confirmed what you probably already knew about listening to holiday music. According to studies by the University of London, there is an upside-down U-shaped relationship between the number of times we hear a holiday song . . . and our enjoyment level. That means that when we first start hearing holiday songs again, at this time of year, we LIKE it. It brings back memories and gets us excited about Christmas. And the more we hear Christmas music, the MORE excited we get and the more we like it. But then, our enjoyment level reaches a peak . . . and we've heard enough. After that, our enjoyment level drops off . . . QUICKLY. Since we hear the music EVERYWHERE we go, it causes us to get bored . . . and then annoyed. And since the holidays are usually a stressful time for people, it causes us to get annoyed even FASTER.

SPOILER ALERT: WANNA KNOW THE TIME OF DAY YOU’RE GONNA DIE?
Not sure you want to know this but, SPOILER ALERT . . . we can tell you the time of day when you're going to DIE. Assuming you don't die prematurely in a car accident or underneath a pile of 48 women in an orgy, researchers in Boston have figured out your approximate time of death. If you consider yourself a morning person, or your sleep is regular and you're not a morning or night person, you're most likely to die late in the morning, just before 11:00 A.M. If you're a night person, you're most likely to die just before 6:00 P.M. The times of death are tied to the genes that make you a morning or night person. The researchers think those genes could also be tied to how your body handles things like strokes or cancer . . . and when your body's natural rhythms make you most susceptible to diseases.
A LADY WITH 38 DD’S TRIED TO KILL HER MAN WITH ‘EM!
Back in May, Tim Schmidt of Unna, Germany was having sex with his girlfriend, 33-year-old Franziska Hansen. Franziska is about 126 pounds and has 38-double-D breasts. As they were having sex, Franziska grabbed Tim's head and shoved it between her breasts. She told him it was a SEX GAME. But Tim says, quote, "I couldn't breathe anymore. I must've turned blue." He had about 60 pounds on Franziska, so he was able to get free. He asked her what she was doing, and she told him she was trying to KILL HIM but, quote, "I wanted your death to be as pleasurable as possible." Tim and Franziska had been together for about four years, but had been going through problems: He'd taken a new job as a lawyer, she moved with him, but couldn't find a job in their new town. Now she's on trial for attempted murder with a weapon. Yes, in this case, her large breasts count as weapons!
NFL ROUNDUP & TURKEY DAY RECAP!
A veritable buffet of big plays were served up on Thanksgiving as the New England Patriots, Washington Redskins and Houston Texans stuffed themselves with tasty touchdowns that led to mouth-watering victories. The Patriots devoured their AFC East rival New York Jets 49-19, scoring on three touchdown passes and two fumble returns to pile up a 35-0 halftime lead. In the second half they added two short touchdown runs to pretty much cook any chance the Jets might have had of making a playoff run. In Dallas, the Redskins feasted on their NFC East rival Cowboys 38-31, taking advantage of three Dallas turnovers and four Robert Griffin III touchdown tosses to spoil the Boys’ home-cooked meal. And the Texans ate up the Detroit Lions 34-31 in overtime thanks to a Shayne Graham 32-yard field goal. All four NFC division leaders put more distance between themselves and their closest competition on Sunday, bringing their respective playoff pictures into sharper focus. The New York Giants (6-4) crushed the Green Bay Packers (7-3) 38-10 on Sunday Night Football; the Atlanta Falcons (10-1) took another step towards securing home-field advantage throughout the playoffs after hanging on for a slim 24-23 triumph over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-5); the Chicago Bears (8-3) welcomed starting quarterback Jay Cutler back to the lineup but treated their guests the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) rudely, easily beating them 28-10; and the San Francisco 49ers (8-2-1) went into New Orleans and came away with a 31-21 victory over the Saints (5-6). The Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens both took significant steps towards leaving their respective division challengers in their dust after sewing up workmanlike wins on Sunday. Peyton Manning passed for 285 yards and two touchdowns to steer the 8-3 Broncos to a 17-9 victory over the 1-10 Kansas City Chiefs, while Justin Tucker’s 38-yard field goal with just 1:07 left in overtime bolted Baltimore (9-2) past the San Diego Chargers (4-7) 16-13. Additional AFC scores of interest include the surprising 7-4 Indianapolis Colts holding off the 4-7 Buffalo Bills 20-13, the 6-5 Pittsburgh Steelers coming up short against the 3-8 Cleveland Browns 20-14, and the 6-5 Cincinnati Bengals sending the inept 3-8 Oakland Raiders to their latest defeat 34-10. Here is the complete NFL scoreboard.
2 SEAHAWKS D-BACKS ARE FACING BANS FOR P.E.D.’S
Seattle Seahawks starting cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are both staring four-game suspensions in the face for allegedly violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy, according to league sources. Both players tested positive and are appealing their suspensions. If Sherman and Browner are banned, Seattle would start veteran Marcus Trufant and three-year man Walter Thurmond next Sunday in Chicago against the Bears.

Elsewhere, the New York Knicks pummeled the Detroit Pistons 121-100 to run their record to 9-3; the Brooklyn Nets easily topped the Portland Trail Blazers 98-85; the Philadelphia 76ers eclipsed the Phoenix Suns 104-101; the Denver Nuggets cruised by the New Orleans Hornets 102-84; and the Boston Celtics took down the Orlando Magic 116-110 in overtime.
OH SNAP! AUBURN'S COACH CHIZIK AXED TWO YEARS AFTER WINNING TITLE
The powers that be at Auburn University clearly have no patience when it comes to the amount of football losses they’ll tolerate before firing the school’s head coach. On Sunday, coach Gene Chizik was handed his walking papers a mere two years after leading the Tigers to a national championship. Auburn finished the season 3-9, going winless in the SEC and losing the most games in school history since posting an 0-10 record in 1950. Just 17 months ago, Auburn inked Chizik to a contract worth around $3.5 million per season through 2015.

AS A GATOR FAN, I CAN ONLY JUST SAY THIS IS TOTALLY AWESOME…
Sometimes Florida State just can't help but be Florida State. On Saturday, the TV cameras at the Florida-Florida State game got a shot of a Florida State fan who clearly put on her facepaint using a mirror. And we know that because she tried to write "FSU" on her cheeks . . . only she forgot she was doing it in a mirror so the letters came out reversed.
