  • Why JWoww Hates Being Pregnant

    The soon-to-be "Jersey Shore" mother is not happy about her pregnancy!

    'Snooki & JWoww' star Jenni Farley, known more commonly as JWoww, is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with fiancé Roger Mathews in July. When Farley, 28, first announced her pregnancy, she said she found it "exciting," but at the MTV Movie Awards on April 13 she told Us Magazine her feelings have changed.

    "She [co-star Snooki] loves being pregnant right now and I f-ing hate it," JWoww told Us Magazine. "I'm not a fan of pregnancy right now with my thighs touching and my boobs changing but I know it will be worth it and hopefully I get back to that really quickly."

    Even though pregnancy isn't going as smooth as the reality star would've liked, she's still been picking out baby names and enjoying the baby's kicks, which she says her fiancé feels the most.

    "It's funny because Roger will lay his head on my stomach and she will just drop kick him right in the ear," JWoww said. "It's cute, he gets to feel

  • The Utah man who was rescued Saturday after being stranded with his two young sons in a canyon for days says "anything could have happened" during their terrifying ordeal.

    Jason Knight of Payson, Utah, took his 8- and 11-year-old sons camping Tuesday in Utah's Sandthrax Canyon. The trio got lost when Knight says he took a wrong turn that led them to a far more dangerous canyon.

    "It was supposed to be a three-hour tour," Knight said. "I made a wrong turn."

    "Everything out there looks the same."

    Knight says he positioned his sons on a safe ledge while he went on to find an escape. That only made the family's ordeal worse, however, when Knight became trapped in the narrow walls of the canyon, about 350y feet away from his children.

    "They could not hear me. I could not hear them," Knight said.

    A break finally came Friday when Knight's wife called authorities after her husband and sons failed to return home. County authorities launched a search and, on Saturday, a helicopter located the boys.

  • ABC News' Carolyn Durand reports:

    Speculation fueled by Prince William himself that a sibling to his only child, Prince George, was on the way has been apparently put to rest, thanks to a few sips of wine.

    Both William, 31, and his wife, Kate Middleton, 32, visited a New Zealand vineyard Sunday, part of the royal family's 19-day trip Down Under, and both enjoyed a tasting of pinot noir.

    Kate's sips of wine, suggesting that she's not pregnant, came just days after Prince William told a woman who made a gift for 8-month-old Prince George, the couple's first child, that she might need to make another one.

    Also quelling the rumor mill was the wild boat ride Kate took this weekend, with the whitewater jet boat she rode topping speeds of 50 mph.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as the couple is formally known, continued the competitive and athletic spirit they've maintained throughout the trip by also showing

  • Glow-in-the-Dark Roads Light Up Dutch Highway

    These glow-in-the-dark road markings aren't just pretty - they save money and energy, too.

    These luminescent strips replaced streetlights on a 0.3-mile stretch of highway in the Netherlands, part of an experiment that might change the way roads are illuminated across the globe.

    The roads markings, which went into effect Sunday night, might even one day be able to include temperature-sensitive paint to warn drivers of the possibility of ice.

    The lights are charged up by the sun throughout the day and then last up to eight hours - long enough to get through most of or all the way through the night. But the real test is whether the paint can stand up to the wear and tear of constant traffic.

  • New York City gained access this weekend to an unlimited coffee subscription service that tries to compete with brew giants like Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. CUPS, the Israeli-originated app, currently partners with 40 independent coffee shops across the city to offer unlimited drinks for a flat monthly fee.

    Though 40 shops may sound like a lot, they're pretty much all located in downtown Manhattan. But CUPS founder Gilad Rotem said the service plans to expand to 200 shops in the next few months, and other cities across the country after that.

    "People love their coffee, and the idea of unlimited coffee -- especially not in Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts, but rather high-quality, cool independent coffee shops -- is something that's appealing to many," Rotem said.

    He declined to discuss the financial agreement between the app and the shops.

    The service is $45 for brewed coffee and $85 for espresso-based drinks, and seems like a deal for the joe-obsessed. But is it worth it for anyone else?

  • ABC News' Gio Benitez reports:

    Indiana University freshman Julian Batts seemed to be on a roll on his appearance on "Wheel of Fortune," until a series of unfortunate answers torpedoed his chance for a car, a trip to Jamaica and a shot at million dollars.

    Batts filled in the letters to practically solve the puzzle "Mythological Hero Achilles," but he mispronounced the hero's name, saying instead: "A-chill-is."

    It cost him potentially $1 million.

    In an interview with "Good Morning America," Batts explained what was going through his mind when he realized what had slipped through his fingers in the episode, which aired Friday during the show's College Week

    "It just kind of hit me like a train and I really didn't know how to react to it - the game continued on and [another contestant from] Texas A&M, she solved it and it hit me right then and there that it was Achilles," he said. "I didn't feel like I made a mistake but I feel like I solved the

  • 6 Key Moments from the MTV Movie Awards

    MTV handed out its golden popcorn trophies Sunday for the 22nd MTV Movie Awards. This year's awards - hosted by Conan O'Brien - featured male objectification, meme-inspiring animals and a special tribute to a fallen actor. Here are 6 key moments from the show.

    Hello, Zac Efron

    Zac Efron won best shirtless performance for his work in "That Awkward Moment." Fittingly, he accepted the award shirtless - after Rita Ora ripped it off of him, fulfilling a Twitter promise he had made in March.

    "I really don't know what to say, but thank you so much to my fans," he said.

    Celebs Galore

    How many celebs can you cram into a Movie Awards opening clip?

    The show began with O'Brien and a group of suits trying to figure out how many celebrity cameos they could fit into the segment. O'Brien promised 50 celebs.

    "This is insanity," one of the men said. "I've been with MTV since 1947 ( note: MTV launched in 1980), and you sir will never get 50 cameos."

    So Conan embarked on his quest, tracking

  • It's probably a good thing she said yes.

    With prom around the corner one young "Breaking Bad" fan found a unique way to ask his date to the prom: by getting Walter White to do it.

    Stefan Montana asked Bryan Cranston, who is appearing in the play "All the Way" on Broadway, for the favor as the actor left the theater.

    "Maddie, if you don't go to the prom with Stefan than maybe your best course of action is to tread lightly," Cranston said in character.

    "I don't think there's any saying no to Walter White," Montana told ABC News after finding out his date said yes.

    Although he conceded "If she did say no then …"

    "He would kill me," Montana's date Maddie answered for him. "It was a threat, but a kind threat."

  • Make-A-Wish Foundation Makes Sick Boy Honorary Firefighter

    An adorable 6-year-old boy with a mysterious medical disorder got a treat from the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Sheboygan, Wis., fire department - his dream job.

    Ryan Wirtjes, of Sheboygan, was made an honorary firefighter for the town Thursday, getting a special uniform, a ride in the fire truck, and the chance to go along on an official safety inspection as part of the crew, ABC affiliate WISN reported.

    "The smile on his face - I haven't seen that quite that big in a while," said William Wirtjes, his father.

    It's a dream that would be difficult for Wirtjes to otherwise realize, since he has an unknown mitochondrial disorder that affects every part of his body and sends excess fluid into his brain.

    Wirtjes will also be going to Disney World, with all expenses paid by the foundation.

    "That is medicine and more magic that medicine could be," his mother, Joanne Wirtjes said.

  • Inside the Most Expensive Home in the U.S.

    A Greenwich, Conn., waterfront mansion has been sold for $120 million, making it the largest purchase of a single-family home in U.S. history.

    The home and 50.5-acre property, previously owned by by timber mogul John Rudey, includes 12 bedrooms, a 4,000-foot-wide beach, two offshore islands, a solarium, a grass tennis court, greenhouses, and a heated pool.

    Realtors David Ogilvy & Associates handled the sale and would not reveal the name of the buyer.

    The median price of homes in the U.S. is about $222,000, meaning that someone would need to buy about 540 typically priced homes to spend as much.
