Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Has a Tearful Meeting With Cancer Survivor

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Has a Tearful Meeting With Cancer Survivor Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has an Easter story to top all others. The wrestling icon and actor Sunday posted a smiling picture on Facebook with a fan and shared how the random meeting took place. "Cool story to share on Easter… After my workout I'm driving in my pickup and notice these kids in the rearview mirror screaming and running after my truck. Thought to myself, 'Should I stop or keep driving?' I stopped," he wrote. Johnson, 42, said he jumped out of his truck and "this kid runs up to me, hugs the hell outta me and says it’s been his life's dream to meet me and tell me how much I’ve inspired him to fight cancer (Hodgkin's lymphoma) and hard core chemo and stem cell transplant treatments. He was a little teary eyed and said for months and months all he's wanted to do was find me and say this face to face. I told him what it meant to me to hear this story." But that wasn't the end. Johnson, 42, took pictures with the brave survivor, and as the Furious 7 star drove off, something took over inside him. "As I'm driving I start shaking my head (and tearing up) at how fragile life is and how amazing and cool the universe was to make this meeting between myself and this special kid Nick Miller come true. Let's always take a moment to count our blessings…cause there's always something to be grateful for. Happy Easter y'all - DJ," he closed the passage. Johnson also posted another picture Sunday at "DISNEY STUDIOS signing contracts to play male lead in their next big classic animated musical - MOANA." Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

Kim Kardashian Might Not Be Able to Carry More Children

Kim Kardashian Might Not Be Able to Carry More Children ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Sunday night's Keeping Up With the Kardashians was filled with suspense and drama. Here's a quick rundown of all the Kardashian bombshells that took place over the weekend, on the show and even off it! 1. Kim Might Not Be Able to Carry More Children Kim Kardashian has been very vocal about wanting more children with husband Kanye West. But Sunday night, the reality star, 34, revealed health issues might prevent her from carrying again. Kim and Kanye are parents to daughter North West, 21 months. Kardashian told West her "placenta grew onto [her] uterus," according to People magazine. For this reasons, doctors brought up the possibility of surrogacy as an alternative. "I complain so much about how I hated being pregnant, and I never thought I would be begging to be pregnant," Kim said on the show. The episode ends with Kim going under the knife to hopefully fix the problem. The show ends with the dreaded "To Be Continued." 2. Rob Gets Cut Off After Kris Jenner, 59, finds out her son never leaves the house and is spending tons of money on who knows what, she decides it's time to take action. "I've gotten a few reports that he's been spending a lot of money and locking himself up in his room a lot and not really coming out," Kris tells the family, according to US Weekly. With the problem becoming more serious, the Kardashian women -- Khloe, Kim, Kris and Kourtney -- hire a professional to help their loved one. "I feel like if I don't help him do something drastic that he's going to die," Kris said. Finally, Kim cuts Rob, 28, off until he embraces the help. "You are cut off financially, not taken care of whatsoever, so either go now or accept our help," Kim said. Kris also reveals that her son has gained around 100 pounds in the last year. "He doesn't go out of the house. He's missed Christmas, he's missed Kim's wedding," Kris tells the life coach for Rob, according to Entertainment Tonight. 3. Kylie Jenner's Photo Scandal The Kardashians were in the news off-screen, as well. After a social media outcry following pictures Kylie Jenner, 17, posted online from a recent shoot, the young reality TV star took to Instagram to tell fans to "calm down." "This is a black light and neon lights people lets all calm down," she wrote next to a picture wearing dark makeup, which some have criticized as "black face."

Phaedra Parks Said Other “Real Housewives” Haven’t Been Supportive After Husband Went to Jail

Phaedra Parks Said Other “Real Housewives” Haven’t Been Supportive After Husband Went to Jail Quantrell Colbert/Bravo(NEW YORK) — When Phaedra Parks' estranged husband Apollo Nida went to jail for eight years for fraud charges, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star said she didn't have the support of her fellow castmembers, except for two.When asked if the other Housewives have been supportive throughout the ordeal, Parks says on an upcoming episode of The Steve Harvey Show, "They really haven’t been.""Well, I can’t say all of them haven’t been," she clarifies on Monday's show. "Porsha [Williams] and Nene [Leakes] have been very supportive, but they have been through similar situations. Not like mine, no prison or anything like that, but they’ve had situations in their marriages and relationships that were very difficult that played out in public."Leakes divorced Gregg Leakes in 2011 after 13 years of marriage, only to remarry in 2013. Also, Williams went through a much-publicized divorce from former NFL player Kordell Stewart. The two finalized their divorce in 2013, with Williams later alleging she endured domestic violence during the marriage. Stewart denied those claims. Parks, who was previously close with Kandi Burrus on the series, says on Steve Harvey that she was surprised that Leakes has been there for her because the two had a contentious relationship in the past. "Nene, you know, she has been the person who has called me every day, sent me texts just to make sure I was okay and just really been very supportive. You know, we’re not the best of friends, but she has been a wonderful friend throughout this ordeal," she adds.Parks and Nida, who wed in 2009, have two young sons, Dylan and Ayden. Parks filed for divorce last October while Nida was in jail.The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

DMX Accused in Alleged Newark, NJ Robbery

DMX Accused in Alleged Newark, NJ RobberyiStock Editorial/Thinkstock(NEWARD, N.J.) — Newark, New Jersey police are looking into accusations that DMX robbed a man at a gas station early Sunday morning.A friend of the 21-year-old alleged victim says DMX robbed the victim of about $3,200 cash from a recently-cashed paycheck. The friend says DMX took the money after the rapper's security detail asked the victim to empty his pockets -- apparently to confirm he didn't have a weapon -- and the victim pulled out the money.  The bodyguard allegedly flashed the handle of a gun when the victim protested.  DMX reportedly then left with his entourage. Neither the alleged victim nor the friend were publicly identified.New York's WABC-TV reports the alleged victim followed DMX's entourage of black Escalades and took down license numbers.  Police are also reportedly hoping video surveillance at the gas station will help their investigation. DMX, born Earl Simmons, was in Newark for a Saturday night show, tweeting afterward, "Jersey!!!!! Thank You!! For real Thank You!!!!!"No charges have reportedly been filed as yet.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

The graphics included updates such as: "Not allowed to see family," "Thrown off boat" and "Hiding in desert as woman."The sketch comes in the wake of HBO's March 30 premiere of the Scientology documentary Going Clear from director Alex Gibney in which former members claim to have been abused and kept from seeing their families after leaving the religion.Michael Keaton hosted this past weekend's edition of SNL.

“Mad Men”: Shocking Way Fans Treated January Jones Because of Betty

“Mad Men”: Shocking Way Fans Treated January Jones Because of Betty Michael Yarish/AMC(NEW YORK) -- Fans tend to take their favorite shows to heart.Mad Men fans are no different and in fact, they are more loyal than most. So, when Betty Draper started to change after the first couple seasons on the show and began her move to leave Don, the audience didn't react too kindly to the actress who played Betty -- January Jones."Betty changed every season. She tried to change. She was always trying to get to a place where she felt happy and safe," Jones told reporters last week in New York. "The audience really tells the story too for you."Betty eventually left Draper for Henry Francis after she found out Don had lied about who he was and had cheated on her."The first couple seasons, people were very empathetic and felt bad for her … and was like ‘Poor Betty’ and people would come up to me and feel bad for me," she said. "Once she left Don and gained her independence and started speaking out for herself, started to empower herself...people hated her."She continued, "Even at the end of season two when she slept with that guy in the bar, the hate that I got from men especially ... like ‘How could she do that?’...like really, do you watch the show you...hypocrite?"Jones, 37, said people would approach her to complain."Yeah, they were like mean to me on the street," she said.Once again, Betty picked up support from the fans when she gained all that weight later in the series."She became likable because she was sad again … it just proves we really haven’t come as far as we’d like to think we have," she said.But no matter her ups and downs with fans, Jones has nothing but respect for Betty."I’m sort of sick of defending her, I love her and I’m sad I’ll never get to speak for her again because she’s brave in a way I’ll never be," she said. "She’s seriously flawed too but we all are." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Giuliana Rancic: Zendaya Comments on “Fashion Police” Were ‘Edited’

Giuliana Rancic: Zendaya Comments on “Fashion Police” Were ‘Edited’ Photo by: Andrew Eccles/Style(NEW YORK) -- Giuliana Rancic is fully explaining the Zendaya comments that were made last month on Fashion Police that resulted in the E! host receiving death threats afterwards.What made the air on the show was that Zendaya's dreadlocks possibly smelled like "patchouli oil and weed," but there was more that didn't make the show, said Rancic, 40."I made [the joke] as a reference to the hippie culture. It was a bohemian-chic reference, not about race, nor would it ever be," she told People magazine. "On set, I made peace signs and I said boho twice."In fact, Rancic, who regrets that people interpreted the joke in a racial way, said she didn't write the joke and added, "It was edited. And my words were taken out of context. If I thought this joke could be interpreted another way, I never would have done it. I felt horrible."She continued, "There were about 50 sets of eyeballs on set that day and not one person thought that it had the undertones that it ended up having once it aired because they heard it in context."The backlash came online, as Rancic got "death threats.""People were sending me pictures of the barrel of a gun saying, 'I'm going to kill your family.' It was awful," she said, adding that she isn't surprised the show is on hiatus and that two co-hosts have left."There were just all sorts of problems. I really believe it was only a matter of time before that specific show with that cast and that format fell apart," she said. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

"You go through the five steps of grief and whoever invented those, was a genius."It's so true," he added. "You can write them down and that’s how you do it. Whatever it is –- anger, bargaining, acceptance and all the other things, that’s kind of how, for me, it was."Hamm, 44, said the fact that filming ended last summer has actually been a blessing."It was eight months ago in July, and so there was a process and we all kind of did our own thing. Between then and now, people have done movies and plays, and moving on with their lives," he said. "Then we do this, and it’s kind of a nice revisiting with a little time under your belt."He added, "Yes, saying goodbye was a real thing. It was very much a process of walking into a set I've walked into for eight years and you go, ‘Oh s***, its’ gone. The whole office is gone.’"As for how his character will finish his run on the show, Hamm said he is content with the ending fans will soon watch."I could literally write down the last scene on Mad Men, but why would that be fun?" he joked.

Jordana Brewster: What “Furious 7” Set Was Like After Paul Walker’s Death

Jordana Brewster: What “Furious 7” Set Was Like After Paul Walker’s Death Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With Furious 7 hitting theaters, Jordana Brewster stopped by Popcorn with Peter Travers to talk about the late Paul Walker -- who has played her on-screen love interest for almost 15 years. "I remember this guy with blond highlights walking into this room, thinking how gorgeous he was," Brewster said of the first time she met Walker on set. Walker died during production in November 2013 and Brewster said what sticks with her is that the late actor did most of his own stunts for this new movie. "He was truly a black belt and I didn't know that till Fast 5. He was just such a humble dude," she said. "Not boastful, which is so not Hollywood. That just speaks volumes about him." When Brewster, 34, heard Walker had died in a tragic car accident, she said, "I just couldn't believe it." "It was very supportive and loving," she said of the mood when the cast came back after his death. "It wasn't just about the cast banding together, but also the crew ... What was beautiful about the set was everybody tried to maintain a sense of decorum and professionalism, but if one of us lost it suddenly in the makeup chair, we were there to support them."

Sally Field Told She Wasn’t ‘Pretty Enough’ to Be in Movies

Sally Field Told She Wasn’t ‘Pretty Enough’ to Be in Movies Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- When Sally Field wanted to make the transition from TV to movies in the 1970s, she was told flat out she couldn't do it. Her agent at the time said, "You can't get into film. You're not pretty enough. You're not good enough," Field revealed Thursday at a conference in Boston, according to People magazine. Field, 68, said the comment completely changed her life. "I said, 'You're fired.' And at the same time, I also left my husband because he was like, 'Well, what will we do? We don't have any money.' And I said, 'Well, get out.'" Field is obviously now an Oscar-winning actress who is known for her acceptance speech and saying, "You like me, you really like me!" Field was also at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston this week to talk about her openly gay son, of whom she couldn't be prouder. "It wasn't until he was about 21 or 22 that he sat and cried and cried and cried and said he was gay and said, 'What'll I do? What'll I do? I won't have a family, I won't have the dreams that I want, and I said, 'Yes, you will,'" she said. "There are too many families that don't understand that when you have a gay child, that it should be embraced ... it is not a lifestyle you choose because you think it's fun or popular or different. It's what nature said you are." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Harrison Ford Plane Crash: Friend Says Star Is ‘Recovering Remarkably’

Harrison Ford Plane Crash: Friend Says Star Is ‘Recovering Remarkably’ Photo by Junko Kimura/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A producer of the Indiana Jones films says the series' star, Harrison Ford, is “recovering remarkably” after crash-landing his plane last month in an accident that seemed straight out of one of Ford’s movies.“Harrison is at home [in Los Angeles] and he’s up and about,” Frank Marshall told Variety magazine Tuesday at event in New York City.“I talked to him yesterday and he’s doing really well,” Marshall said of 72-year-old Ford. “He’s pretty banged up, but he’s recovering remarkably. He wants to play tennis.”Ford, an avid pilot, was rushed to a California hospital March 5 after his single-engine, World War II-era plane crash-landed on a Santa Monica golf course. Ford was hospitalized with what the National Transportation and Safety Board report called “serious injuries.”The NTSB report said Ford made critical decisions in steering his plane away from neighborhoods and homes as it suffered engine problems, putting him on the nearly-empty golf course and resulting in no bystanders hurt.Marshall said that Ford’s actions were “the thing you would expect him to do in a movie, but he did it in real life.”“He’s a really good pilot,” Marshall said. “I’ve talked to a lot of pilots who said that was a hell of a landing and he did everything correct in that situation.“He made an incredible landing, to his credit,” the producer added. “He is, after all, Indiana Jones.” Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

“Mad Men” Cast Reveals What They Took From the Set

“Mad Men” Cast Reveals What They Took From the Set Frank Ockenfels 3/AMC(NEW YORK) -- With the final episodes starting up again on Sunday, the cast of Mad Men gathered to recall their favorite memories from the show and even revealed what they took home as a keepsake when filming ended last summer. "We weren't allowed to [keep the clothing], it’s in the museum down in Queens," January Jones, who plays Betty Draper Francis, told reporters last week at a New York City event. But Jones, 37, joked that she may have taken something she wasn't supposed to. "I have her silver, we weren't supposed to take anything that was valued over $100," she said. "The one she like polishes, I have that. I don’t know what I'm going to do with it, but I have it. I would never use it. First I have to polish it." John Slattery knew exactly what he wanted from Roger Sterling's office. "There was a lamp, that was like two wooden boxes with a frame in the middle that had been sitting on my desk for years and I walked away with that," the 52-year-old actor said. As for Jon Hamm, who stars as Don Draper, he wasn't specific, but he said he was "given some things." "Some of the department heads put some things aside for me that they thought would be meaningful," Hamm, 44, said. Show creator Matthew Weiner took some items since, hey, it's his show! "I kept a lot of stuff!" he said. "First of all, I gave a lot of my stuff to the show to put it in. If you go to the museum in Queens and you'll see the chip and dip set that's in the show, that was my parents' wedding present." Weiner, 49, said he had things like that and took them back after the show. He also took symbolic items from every character. "I have Peggy's tape dispenser, I took Don's Clio," he said. "I took Roger's bar...That's the kind of thing. I didn't take anybody's clothes or anything like that. I just wanted a couple of things specific to the show."
