While walking down the boardwalk in Hollywood Beach, Fla., with light weights strapped to her ankles, Rohrback started moving to the beat of a catchy song that started playing through her earphones. The rhythm she found through the song became the first version of her popular exercise. "I heard a really good song on the music player that I had; I started moving in a very unique fashion forward, rhythmically, and that became the first mode of Prancercise: the Prancercise walk," Rohrback told uInterview exclusively.</p> <p>In her latest video, the follow-up to the insanely viral first one that Rohrback released in 2013, the exercise originator teams up with a number of horsse. Rohrback admits that including the horses in the video was fulfilling a childhood dream – not one of riding a horse, but moving alongside of it with a prance of her own.</p> <p>“It was always my dream to move alongside a horse, Prancercising and not riding one because I’m not one to ride a horse,” explained Rohrback. “Personally, I don’t want to force my will on another creature, and I don’t want to put a bit in its mouth, put a saddle on it, and kick it with my feet to force its movement in one way or another. I’d much rather just be part of the herd and move alongside one and Prancercise.”</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/cIXIZ_8aGM8?list=UUJ8M54BsuUzQxFXLzNcrrmw" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>In order to make this dream a reality, Rohrback joined forces with Peacefull Ridge Rescue owner <strong>Victor Cutino. "</strong>He’s a very good human being and when I approached him for a location, and I didn’t know where it was going to go and we talked more, and it just kind of came to be," said Rohrback. "He’s very comfortable with the horses and not everybody can be that way, and he was just a good accompaniment to my video."</p> <h1> Rohrback Talks 'Imposters,' New Exercise</h1> <p>From the get-go, when Rohrback was perfecting her Prancercise movements on the boardwalk, she received wary looks from people who thought she was “on drugs or something,” but it didn’t deter her. Rohrback has also been making an effort to not be phased by the “imposters” copying her moves or the plethora of parody videos that have cropped up.</p> <p>"I know people are trying to do it but in kind of not upright ways and not legitimate ways, but as I have my certification process in motion, that will change," says Rohrback of the impostors. As for the parodies, she says, "I say ‘Hey, everybody wants to ride the wave and any type of amusement and entertainment they can bring out. Why not, you know? Everybody was so in awe and trying to figure me out, and thought it was kind of funny because of the clothes I was wearing or the way I was wearing them or the way I talked and it was just all so new and different that it was easy to do parodies for it.”</p> <p>Rohrback, who parlayed her cyber-stardom into a guest-starring role on <em>Glee</em>, does have more exercises in store for her fans – but she’s not ready to share what they are just yet. “Hey, you guys have to learn the first four modes! You want more?” she asked with a laugh, adding, “There is another mode of Prancercise that I might develop but that’s hush hush for now. You have enough to chew on. I’ve got to have some secrets to make myself intriguing!”</p> <p> </p> <p> </p>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10jl33xyrh/1iam8dactj3k/crm7i8s7qxc84kk/63y1h1yec/3lw6ndx09wysg4/bxksdsb8pk0kw/8i58nc11ajwo0/3o4rtxahvtcw<![CDATA[Goliath Grouper Swallows A 4-ft Shark Whole In Viral Video]]>http://uinterview.com/news/goliath-grouper-swallows-a-4-ft-shark-whole-in-viral-video-12587<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/goliath-grouper-swallows-a-4-ft-shark-whole-in-viral-video-12587'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/decebdf8bc20062517190e951bc878c4-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>A fisherman off the coast of Florida recorded a goliath grouper swallowing a 4-foot shark in a single bite in a video that has now gone viral.</p> <h1> Goliath Grouper Swallows 4-ft Shark Whole</h1> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/O37HI_AX9nY?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>The fisherman in the video had just caught a four-foot black tip shark in Bonita Springs, FL, when the <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/US/massive-goliath-grouper-snatches-shark-single-bite/story?id=25076840" target="_blank">goliath grouper</a> made itself known. Just as the shark was approaching the side of the boat, the giant fish emerged from the water, opening its jaws, and disappeared just as quickly, leaving nothing in its wake.</p> <p>Goliath groupers populate the Florida coastal waters, though they are far from common. Known as predators, goliath groupers can grow up to 800 pounds, measuring over 8 feet in length. According to the Florida Museum of Natural History, goliath groupers typically eat lobsters, shrimps, octopus and other fishes, and prefer to consume their food in one bite.</p> <p>“Prey is ambushed, caught with a quick rush and snap of the jaws. The sharp teeth are adapted for seizing prey and preventing escape although most prey is simply engulfed and <a href="http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/gallery/descript/goliathgrouper/goliathgrouper.html" target="_blank">swallowed whole</a>,” states the Florida Museum of Natural History.</p> <p>It’s not uncommon for goliath groupers to take their food from a fisherman’s reel. Once close to endangered, it is illegal for fisherman to catch and kill goliath groupers, but goliath groupers have been increasing in number, and stealing more potential catches from fishermen.</p> <p>“We have goliaths taking legal grouper and snapper right off our lines, over and over – lobsters too. <a href="http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2014/07/goliath-grouper/holland-text" target="_blank">It’s such a waste</a>,” <strong>Jim Thomas</strong>, a commercial fisherman, told <em>National Geographic</em>.</p>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10jl33xyrh/1iam8dactj3k/crm7i8s7qxc84kk/63y1h1yec/3lw6ndx09wysg4/bxksdsb8pk0kw/8i58nc11ajwo0/1vdio5aujk80g40c<![CDATA[Kent Brantly And Nancy Writebol, American Missionaries, Cured Of Ebola, Released From Hospital]]>http://uinterview.com/news/kent-brantly-and-nancy-writebol-american-missionaries-cured-of-ebola-released-from-hospital-12586<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/kent-brantly-and-nancy-writebol-american-missionaries-cured-of-ebola-released-from-hospital-12586'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/9544def95ada817d7be4eea7a26e7ced-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Dr. <strong>Kent Brantly </strong>and <strong>Nancy Writebol</strong>, two<strong> </strong>American medical missionaries, successfully fought off the Ebola virus and have been discharged from Emory University Hospital.</p> <h1> American Aid Workers Discharged After Ebola Scare</h1> <p><a href="http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-nn-american-doctor-ebola-20140821-story.html" target="_blank">Brantly was released </a>from the Atlanta hospital Thursday after Writebol’s release on Tuesday, reported the <em>Los Angeles Times. </em>Though Writebol declined to meet with the press due to her ongoing recovery, Brantly participated in a news conference upon his release while standing beside his wife <strong>Amber Brantley.</strong></p> <p>“God saved my life.

Due to the efforts of the patients and the medical team, Ribner was able to deem them free of the virus.</p> <p>“All of us who have worked for them have been impressed by their determination,” Riber said. “After a rigorous course of treatment and testing, the Emory healthcare team has determined that both patients have recovered from the Ebola virus and can return to their families and community without concern for spreading this infection to others.”</p> <p>Brantley and Writebol received an <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/experts-unsure-drug-cured-americans-ebola-article-1.1912271" target="_blank">experimental drug called ZMapp.</a> While both patients survived, it’s unknown if the drug played a part in their recovery. The aid workers were also treated with the traditional methods of treating Ebola, which involves keeping the patients hydrated, maintaining their blood pressure and tending to infections. No cure or vaccination has yet to be developed for the virus, which claims the lives of the majority of those who become infected.</p> <p> </p>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10jl33xyrh/1iam8dactj3k/crm7i8s7qxc84kk/63y1h1yec/3lw6ndx09wysg4/bxksdsb8pk0kw/8i58nc11ajwo0/nv21zlhkvke<![CDATA[Miley Cyrus 'Bangerz' Tour Banned By Dominican Republic]]>http://uinterview.com/news/miley-cyrus-bangerz-tour-banned-by-dominican-republic-12585<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/miley-cyrus-bangerz-tour-banned-by-dominican-republic-12585'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/6019333c0af8bc5e9101167e65caf7f9-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Miley Cyrus</strong>’ September concert in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, has been cancelled by a commission of the government that deemed her Bangerz tour morally unacceptable.</p> <p>According to a statement issued by a government commission in charge of public performances, Cyrus “undertakes acts that go against morals and customs, which are <a href="http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/entertainment/2014/08/22/miley-cyrus-concert-in-dominican-republic-nixed-by-government-on-moral-grounds/" target="_blank">punishable by Dominican law</a>” throughout her show.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/xxv2dNsS2Gg?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Cyrus, who just wrapped up the <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/miley-cyrus-wraps-up-us-leg-of-bangerz-tour-in-chicago-12508" target="_blank">U.S. leg of her tour</a>, has not responded to the concert ban.

On July 28, at 1 a.m., officers were called to the scene of a disturbance outside the home of <strong>Keith Capo</strong>. Capo claims that Couch, standing next to Capo’s neighbor, threatened him with a gun, days after Capo and his neighbor had had a disagreement. According to the North Richland Hills Police, Couch falsely identified himself as a reserve officer for Lakeside, a neighboring community, when pressed by the police.</p> <p>“Couch reached into his vehicle and took out his wallet, displaying what appeared to be a police badge and identification card, <a href="http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Frederick-Couch-Father-of-Affluenza-Teen-Ethan-Couch-Arrested-for-Impersonating-Police-Officer-271900031.html" target="_blank">suggesting he was a police officer,</a>” said the North Richland Hills Police.</p> <p>Couch presented the cops with a Lakeside ID and police badge that appeared legitimate, so the cops let him go.

Vasquez told US District Judge <strong>Alvin Hellerstein</strong> that he <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/shakira-loca-rip-off-song-judge-article-1.1911198" target="_blank">shared “Loca con su Tiguera” with El Cata</a> in 2006 or 2007 when the two singers met outside a studio in the Dominican Republic. Bello denies the two ever met, and claims he wrote the song about his ex-wife.</p> <p>Eventually, the song found it’s way to Shakira, who recorded her own version with El Cata.</p> <p>“She [Shakira] told me, ‘You have something that makes me move.’ I told her it was the percussion, and I said, ‘Those sounds that you want, I have them in my studio,’” <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/17/arts/music/17shakira.html?pagewanted=all&_r=2&" target="_blank">El Cata said</a> of their collaboration in 2010.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/XAhTt60W7qo?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>“There is no dispute that Shakira’s version of the song was based on Bello’s version. Accordingly, I find that, since Bello had copied Arias, whoever wrote Shakira’s version of the song also <a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6221982/shakira-illegally-copied-song-sony-damages" target="_blank">indirectly copied Arias</a>,” wrote the judge.</p> <h1> Sony ATV Latin To Pay Damages</h1> <p>Shakira, who is a bilingual artist, released both English and Spanish versions of the song, but the copyright claim focused on the Spanish version. As a result, Judge Hellerstein dismissed Sony Corporation and Sony Music parent companies as defendants, but found Sony ATV Latin and Sony/ATV Discos responsible as the labels that distributed the Spanish track. A new lawsuit, to take place before the end of the year, will determine the amount of damages owed.</p> <p>Shakira herself was not directly involved in the suit, and the singer has not commented on the case.</p>Thu, 21 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10jl33xyrh/1iam8dactj3k/crm7i8s7qxc84kk/63y1h1yec/3lw6ndx09wysg4/bxksdsb8pk0kw/8i58nc11ajwo0/2xw1jxf7sqqsc<![CDATA[Hafthor Bjornsson, Who Plays The Mountain On 'Game Of Thrones,' Wins Europe's Strongest Man Competition]]>http://uinterview.com/news/hafthor-bjornsson-who-plays-the-mountain-on-game-of-thrones-wins-europes-strongest-man-competition-12576<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/hafthor-bjornsson-who-plays-the-mountain-on-game-of-thrones-wins-europes-strongest-man-competition-12576'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/cc44f411a7be6e1ce34ba39164a2645e-150x150.png' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Hafthor Bjornsson</strong>, the<strong> </strong><em>Games of Thrones</em> actor, proved he’s nearly as mighty in real life as his onscreen persona “The Mountain” Gregor Clegane when he became Europe’s Strongest Man.</p> <h1> The Mountain Is Europe's Strongest Man</h1> <p>Earlier this month, Bjornsson – whose nickname is Thor – bested the rest of the competition at Europe’s Strongest Man 2014 that was held in Leeds, England.

Nearly two years later, Rohrback is still Prancercising up a storm — this time with <strong>Victor Cutino </strong>in a new video that features a galloping horse. “Well, it was always my dream to move alongside a horse,” Rohrback told uInterview exclusively. “Prancercising and not riding one because I’m not one to ride a horse.”<br /> <br /> So how did Rohrback invent the global sensation that is Prancercising? “One day I heard a really good song on the music player that I had,” she told uInterview, “I started moving in a very unique fashion forward, rhythmically, and that became the first mode of Prancercise: the Prancercise Walk.” Rohrback always believed in her baby, even if others thought she was a bit odd. “Well, I think they’re kind of just like everyone else and just fascinated.” she told uInterview. “What does it feel like? Well look, I always believed in my program, so I’m not totally shocked that people are fascinated by it.”</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/cIXIZ_8aGM8?list=UUJ8M54BsuUzQxFXLzNcrrmw" width="560"></iframe></p> <p>For her next act, Rohrback promises to revolutionize fitness again — but she's not ready to tip her hand just yet.

They’re fighting a lot.”</p> <p>One reason for the fighting is allegedly due to Carey's suspicions that Cannon is cheating on her, or at least that he's putting himself in tempting situations. To lessen her worries, she's hired security guards to keep track of him when he hosts Las Vegas pool parties, according to a source for the <em>Post</em>. "The security guard wasn't there to keep the girls away from him. It was to keep him away from the girls," said the source, who added that Cannon "gets in trouble when he drinks."</p> <p>Back in July, Carey and Cannon put their $13 million Bel Air mansion on the market. They explained that they were unloading the pricey bit of real estate because they wanted to raise their 4-year-old twins – <strong>Moroccan Scott </strong>and <strong>Monroe</strong> – <a href="http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2014/07/nick-cannon-mariah-carey-new-york-city/?utm_source=skimlinks.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=skimlinks.com" target="_blank">in New York City</a>, where Carey owns a triplex in the Tribeca neighborhood.</p> <h1> Marriage Disappears From Social Media</h1> <p>Cannon's Instagram account is currently inactive and Carey's, which previously featured tons of pictures of her husband, hasn't featured the<em> America's Got Talent</em> host since Father's Day.
