I almost threw up when I saw this.
Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o has claimed he is the victim of a cruel hoax after it was revealed that his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, never existed and that her death was faked. He says he believed that she was real and that he spent hours talking on the phone with Lennay, sometimes even falling asleep with her on the other end of the line. Katie reviewed Manti’s phone records and there were, in fact, dozens of calls, some hours long, to one phone number, the number Manti Te’o says belongs to Lennay Kekua. So who was this person on the other end of the phone? Listen to the voicemails Manti Te’o provided exclusively to “Katie”:
One she left on what she said was her first day of chemo treatment:
One she left accusing Manti of having someone else in his room:

The first celebrity I ever met was ...
Vince Gill. It was an inner-city children's golf tournament. I was there to help out and Vince was there to be the celebrity guy. I told him I was in town to write songs and he kind of took me under his arm and he said, "I'm glad you're here," and he took me over to his car and showed me some new golf clubs that nobody had yet, that weren't even on the market.
My first celebrity crush was ...
Reba McEntire. The Queen.
The first thing I notice about a girl is ...
Definitely her smile and her eyes. I don't know which one comes first. If we go deeper than physical, I notice her sense of humor pretty quick.
My best pickup line is ...
My guitar. I have no game. That's why I pick up the guitar.
The sexiest woman alive is ...
The sexiest man alive is ...
The Dos Equis guy ("The Most Interesting Man in the World").
If I could meet a famous historical figure, I would want to meet ...
If I could be anybody else in the world, I would be ...
I wouldn't wish that upon myself at all. If I could live in somebody else's shoes for a certain moment, it would have to be Garth [Brooks] back in his heyday. I would love to actually be in his boots and figure out why he's doing what he's doing.
One place that I would love to visit is ...
Australia. I would love to go Down Under and see what's going on down there.
One smell that I love is ...
Any kind of baked cobbler. But here's the weird smell that I love that people have always thought was funny. I love the smell of skunks. Driving down a back road and you smell a skunk that's sprayed or been hit. I love that. It reminds me of home.
If I could shop at just one store it would be ...
Bass Pro Shops.
My favorite brand of jeans is ...
I've been rocking these Levi's lately. They're 527s.
Boxers or briefs ...
My favorite brand is ...
My favorite thing to do on a day off is ...
To ride back roads, find a field, kick back and listen to music.
One song that always makes me cry is ...
"Ships That Don't Come In," by Joe Diffie.
My worst habit is ...
Not being able to turn off. I'm a laid-back guy but my brain is always wrapped up in music.
My guilty pleasure movie is ...
"National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," "Step Brothers" or "Wedding Crashers."
The last book I read was ...
"Catching Fire" (Book 2 of the "Hunger Games" trilogy).
If I had a job outside of music, it would be ...
If I could be involved in the hunting and fishing industry, that would be amazing. That said, I studied biology in college and that led into me being really involved in anatomy and being a pre-med major. So, probably something in the medical field.
One job I would never want to have ...
I've already had! The day I got a call from my now manager, I was working in a sewage treatment testing facility. With my biology degree, I got this job at an environmental lab. We tested sewage runoff, we tested chemical warfare waste runoff. It's a job I'll never do again and I would never wish upon anybody. It was motivation to get my music in gear, though. It was the kick in the butt I needed. In desperation, you make things happen.
One thing that scares me is ...
Fear of failure. You're always looking for a thumbs-up. Ronnie Dunn and Alan Jackson are still trying to have hits. They've had 20 years of hits but they're still looking for a thumbs-up. You put a piece of your heart out there and you just hope that people love it. But that's what makes this job fun, sometimes people don't love it. Failing the ones that love me is a big fear of mine.
A dream I have is ...
To make a difference in [country music]. If I can have one song 20 years down the road that people will want to play in this genre, that's a dream of mine.
A cause or charity I'm involved with is ...
I helped start the Junior Advisory Board of the W.O. Smith School of Music in Nashville.
The song on my album that describes me best right now is ...
"Your Plan." I'm living a dream right now but that song came about when I didn't know if this was my calling or not. It fell out as a prayer. I'm just holding the pen to a greater thing happening right now.
A video prankster was arrested last night for battery after he allegedly gave wedgies to a series of victims outside a Florida movie theater, police report.

An eBay seller blundered when she posted a picture of a dress — not realising she could be seen KNICKERLESS in a mirror.
Horrified Aimi Jones, 21, quickly spotted her embarrassing gaffe after trying to flog the yellow frock on the auction site.
The waitress removed the picture in which she wears just a bra but it had already been seen — and was posted on Twitter and Facebook.

Someone told cops he thought he saw the king of beasts loose on the street, and he wasn't lion.
Dispatchers in Norfolk, Va. received a 911 call Tuesday reporting that a baby lion was strolling down the street, potentially on the hunt for its next meal, The Virginian-Pilot reported.
The animal in question, however, was no big cat, but actually Charles the Monarch, a Labradoodle whose coat had been shaved to make him resemble Big Blue, the mascot of Old Dominion University.
