Self-Proclaimed ‘Fat Guy’ Eric Defends Himself Against Critics Who Say He’s Scamming America

Self-proclaimed “Fat Guy” Eric was 560 lbs. and unhappy with his weight, so he says he decided to do something unexpected – embark upon an epic bike ride across America. He says he ventured on his cross-country journey to lose weight, write a book about his experience and rescue his failing relationship with his wife.

With very little money to his name, Eric says he started an online fundraising campaign to support his coast-to-coast ride. His mission soon went viral and people started donating to help him pay for equipment and travel expenses.

What Does 560-Pound Man Claim Inspired Him To Bike Ride Across America?

Eric says in June 2015, his wife had just left him, he was jobless and he weighed 560 pounds. Devastated by the circumstances, he says he was inspired to change his life after hearing the Proclaimers song “I’m Going To Be, ” which includes the lyrics, “I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more, just to be the man who walked 1,000 miles to fall down at your door. “

“It really kicked me in the rear,” says Eric. “So, I decided to bike across the country, lose the weight, get my life back, write a book about it, give us a nest egg, get us going again, and show her how much I love her by doing it.”

When Eric, who calls himself “Fat Guy,” started his journey, he says he had $200 in cash and about $600 from a GoFundMe fundraising account. But he says once a journalist heard about his story, his life changed.

“Everything completely changed for me overnight. I had nonstop calls, media requests, emails, messages,” Eric says. “It was pretty crazy. I didn’t sleep for five days.”

Eric became an Internet sensation and his wife, Angie, was smitten with his gesture. His GoFundMe account went from zero to $14,000.

Woman Whose Baby Was Ripped From Her Womb: ‘I Haven’t Lost Faith In Humanity’

Michelle Wilkins was seven months pregnant with her first child when she became a victim of a horrific crime: Dynel Lane cut open Wilkins and took the baby from her womb. Wilkins survived, but her unborn baby did not.

Father Of The Florida Frat Boy Accused Of Gruesome Murders Speaks Out To Dr. Phil

Austin Harrouff, a Florida State University student, is accused of murdering married couple John and Michelle Stevens as they sat in their driveway of their Tequesta, Florida home. The 19-year-old reportedly stabbed the couple multiple times and then bit the man’s face.

In his only televised sit-down interview, Harrouff’s father, Dr. Wade Harrouff, a prominent dentist in the community, reveals to Dr. Phil his account of what led to the incident. Dr. Harrouff shares what he called his son’s “manic behavior” at dinner the night of the murders, and his claim that his son underwent a dramatic personality change two weeks prior to that fateful night.

“It’s the worst thing I could ever think of. This is the biggest nightmare I could ever even dream of,” an emotional Harouff tells Dr. Phil in the episode airing Wednesday, September 7. “I’m deeply sorry for what my son did to those people. And I’ll apologize for him, because my own son would have never done that … He’s such a good person. He would never knowingly do something like that. I’m truly sorry to those people.”

Harrouff, who also allegedly stabbed the Stevens’ neighbor who was attempting to help the couple, has reportedly tested negative for common drugs, but some speculate he may have been under the influence of the hallucinogenic drug ‘Flakka’, also known as “gravel” or “the zombie drug.”

Dr. Phil explores the circumstances surrounding the gruesome double murder in a ripped-from-the-headlines all-new episode. Check here to see where you can watch.

Seventy-three-year-old Anita claims that Schlichter conned her out of millions of dollars and forced her to scam friends and employees out of $500,000 and that she was too scared of repercussions to tell anyone about the situation.

“My daughter would ask me questions, but I had to lie to her because I couldn’t tell her what was going on, and I was even afraid to tell her because I didn’t know if she would confront Art,” Anita says. “I’ve shamed my daughter and I’ve shamed my family.”

And it’s coming in, just be patient,’” Anita alleges, adding that she never saw any of the money she claims she was promised. “When I asked for the money, he would get so angry and cuss and carry on.

Honoring Chicago Police Officer Who Saved Four People And Their Pets From House Fire

Jennifer Jacobucci says her job as a police officer involves much more than just protecting and serving.

During her shift on June 21, 2016, she noticed a house fire as she was returning to her assignment at the Chicago O’Hare airport. Without hesitation, she went to the scene.

“The initial house where the call had come out was completely engulfed in flames, and it had already spread to the house to the north and the south of it,” Officer Jacobucci tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode. “There were still people inside the house. There was a woman on the second floor with two small dogs, got her out. There were still people sleeping on the first floor, so got them out, and then started clearing the rest of the rooms to make sure that there was nobody else in there.”

Parents Claim Grandma Tricked Them Into Signing Over Custody Of Their Child To Her

Sam and Shannon claim Sam’s mother, Kim, tricked them into signing over guardianship of their son to her when he was 6 months old. They say for the past four-and-a-half years she’s been keeping the boy, Conrad, from them while raising him 600 miles from where they live, and that she will not return him unless they meet her “outrageous demands.”

“A month after I had Conrad, Kim tried to control every aspect of me being a mom,” Shannon claims. “She attacked my parenting style, didn’t like the diapers I used. She would come over and bathe Conrad because she said I wasn’t capable of doing it right.”

Shannon also claims that Kim was “constantly butting into our lives,” would show up at their house unannounced and would “stir up drama” in her relationship with Sam.

Kim, however, claims that her grandson was being raised in a home with maggots, moldy baby bottles and dirty dishes, so she was forced to take guardianship of the child.

“I felt like someone needed to step up and take care of this innocent baby, and if that meant I was being controlling and overbearing, then so be it,” Kim says.

In the video above, Shannon tells Dr. Phil her story.
