Charles Ramsey lived right next door to the Cleveland house where Ariel Castro allegedly kept three women captive for up to a decade, but all he saw day after day were two little girls he assumed were Castro's grandchildren playing in the backyard.
But as the world now knows, that changed this week when he rescued the kidnapped Amanda Berry.
As Ramsey told CNN's Anderson Cooper on AC360 Tuesday night that he "heard that girl scream and saw [a neighbor] run across the street, and I went outside and wondered what he was doing, and ... Amanda said, 'I'm stuck in here, help get me out.' "
Ramsey continued: "So here I come with my, you know, half-eaten Big Mac, and I looked and I said, 'Well, what's up?' And she's like, I've been trapped in here, he won't let me out, me and my baby. I said, 'Well, we ain't going to talk no more, come on."

Who's that lady?
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's Mama June dramatically dressed up her newly slimmer bod Saturday at the GLAAD Awards, where her show was nominated for best reality series.
Mom to Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, June Shannon, 33, looked chic and sophisticated (or as she'd put it, "smexy!") in a black wrap dress, plenty of jewelry and tasteful makeup.

Anderson Cooper can see once again after a temporary – and painful – bout of blindness.
Cooper posted a picture of himself on Instagram Tuesday sporting a white gauze patch over his right eye. "Temporarily blinded last week while on assignment," he said. "UV light bouncing off water. Much better now. Details today on #andersonlive."
On Anderson Cooper Live, he explained how he went blind over the weekend while filming a story for 60 Minutes on the coast of Portugal.
"I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like my eyes are on fire," he said. "It turns out I have sunburned my eyeballs and I go blind. I went blind for 36 hours. I took this picture of me after I went to the hospital."

Anderson Cooper is leaving his day job.
The newsman's daily talk show, Anderson Live, will not return for a third season due to discouraging ratings, the syndication arm of Warner Bros. TV decided, according to The New York Times.
"I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons," Cooper, 45, said in a statement. "I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I'm sorry we won't be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it."

Hey, I'm Kate Hogan, the style news editor at PEOPLE.com. I had the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes on Anderson Live Wednesday, acting as blogger of the day and live-Tweeting from New York City's CBS Studios.
It was a busy morning for us at PEOPLE (we debuted Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding photos!) but it was a busy morning for Anderson Cooper, too: His co-host for the day, Lisa Ling, revealed that she's expecting a baby girl!
We got to break the news but that wasn't all ...

While Jake Gyllenhaal has no children of his own just yet, he says being a doting uncle to his sister Maggie's two daughters, Ramona, 6 and Gloria Ray, born in April, has helped him to better "navigate the world of sibling stuff."
Watching the young girls discover their sibling relationships, Gyllenhaal, 31, says, shines a light on the competitiveness he experienced growing up with older sister Maggie, 34, who wed actor Peter Sarsgaard in 2009, the actor tells Anderson Cooper in an interview Friday.
Gyllenhaal, who is currently starring in the police drama End of Watch, confided to Anderson Cooper in a segment of his talk show, Anderson Live, that he and Maggie are hard on each other. But they're also supportive, he says, especially when it comes to talking about their work as actors.
He calls the nieces "extraordinary," and "the best thing that happened to my family probably ever," noting he loves his new role and is trying hard to be the best uncle possible.
