Marco Rubio

I'm No Aaron Rodgers ...

Fires Duck, Kid Goes Down

8/18/2015 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is losing ground in the polls -- and this video won't help ... not with the diehard football fans.

Rubio was tossing the pigskin with some kids in Iowa -- where every other candidate is hanging this week -- and let's just say he needs to work on his spiral ... or get Odell Beckham Jr. as his running mate.

He made it near impossible for the poor kid going out for the pass -- although, in Rubio's defense ... it did hit him in the hands. Awkwardly.

The Vine star even reached out to her later on social media. We're told Dallas also sent her flowers and offered to pay any medical expenses.

Yeah ... totally worth it.

I Removed My Leaky Implants

8/7/2015 1:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0807-yolanda-foster-lyme-disease-INSTAGRAM-01Yolanda Foster thinks her leaky breast implants were making her preexisting medical condition debilitating, so she's had them removed from her body ... and it changed her life. 

According to our sources, the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star had both implants removed this week. Foster says her doctors discovered one of them was leaking silicone, and they immediately realized it was exacerbating the symptoms of her Lyme disease.

Foster was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012 and her condition became so serious earlier this year, she lost the ability to read, write or even watch TV.

But doctors think Yolanda's condition will become way more manageable ... it won't cure her, but it will help keep the symptoms in check.

We're told she's already feeling a lot better.

Her words, not ours.

But she admits there's some stuff Jose has "to get off of and get on" before they get the job done. And don't miss her jab at Jose's age at the end!
