This story is incredible.
Ed Sheeran certainly loves love, and is no stranger to helping people propose at his concerts. But this one really tugs at the heartstrings.

This is Pablo, Tanya and their beautiful family. Pablo (with Ed Sheeran's help) proposed to Tanya during "Thinking Out…

This Rachel Dolezel story has most of America caught between anger and morbid fascination.

Probably the toughest thing for Larry and Ruthanne Dolezal is Rachel's implication that she isn't even related to them!
She told Savannah Guthrie:
"I haven't had a DNA test. There's been no biological proof that Larry and Ruthanne are my biological parents."
Well her brother Ezra Dolezal has something to say to that.
Not only does he flat-out say she's a total liar, but he says he's certain she
