13 Reality TV Hoaxes You Totally Fell For


Admit it: you've been had at some point in the past, haven't you?

You thought what you were watching on reality television was 100% real, only to later learn the devastating truth.

We've all been there. And now we can all be here: relive the most shocking reality TV show hoaxes in history below...

1. Dance Moms

We’ll just let Maddie Ziegler, arguably the show's top performer, lay it right out for you, courtesy of an interview with USA Today: "The producers set it up to make us all yell at each other. You know how I said that moms do fight? The moms have a fake fight sometimes. Afterward they just start talking and laugh about it." Host Abby Lee Miller really does suck, however. that's not fake.

2. House Hunters

Bobi Jensen blogged in 2012, on a site titled “Hooked on Houses,” that her experience on House Hunter was totally contrived. Turns out, the couple had selected its home prior to appearing on the show and producers even changed Jensen’s story over why she was moving.

3. Breaking Amish

Can we change the title of this TLC series to "Having Already Broken Amish?" After the very first episode aired, it came out that most participants had already left their Amish family for the bright lights of the big city.

4. Storage Wars

Dave Hester, a prominent presence on A&E’s Storage Wars, left production and sued the network over the phony aspects of the show. He said producers loaded units up with items to give each episode an artificial angle and that they even funneled money to teams to keep each episode's bidding competitive.

5. Ghost Adventures

Ghost Adventures star Aaron Goodwin was fired in 2014 after he stopped by the podcast Are We Alone and explained how the network staged reactions, sound effects and other aspects of the program. He said it was "sickening" that he was part of such a "fraud."

6. The Hills

Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner and other cast members have come out and said pretty much everything you saw on this MTV reality show as scripted. Shocking, we know!

Sylvester Stallone Reported Dead; Actor Claims Otherwise


According to a number of social media accounts out there, Sylvester Stallone is dead. The veteran actor has passed away from prostate cancer, one Twitter user has alleged, writing online that Stallone kept his illness a "secret" for as long as possible... ... but, in the end, was unable to "beat" the terrible disease. Along with this claim, the same Twitter user included photos of Stallone seemingly going bald, presumably from chemotherapy. Here's the thing, however: Stallone has come out and shot down this allegation, responding on his own Twitter page that he is, in fact, alive. Sharing the initial report, along with the aforementioned pictures, Stallone wrote the following as a message he REALLY hopes can make its way around the Internet quickly: Please ignore this stupidity… Alive and well and happy and healthy… Still punching! We're pretty sure the Creed sequel is filming at the moment, which may explain why Stallone is missing most of his hair in those disturbing snapshots. Even if they are not from the star reprising his iconic role of Rocky Balboa, they may be taken from a different role Stallone is shooting for the big screen. Or perhaps Stallone's hair really is falling out. The important point to remember here is that Sylvester Stallone is alive. In case you don't believe Sly himself, the actor's younger brother, Frank Stallone, also took to social media to slam this hurtful gossip. He didn't really see the humor in the death hoax. "Rumors that my brother is dead are false," wrote Frank, adding: "What kind of sick demented cruel mind thinks of things like this to post? People like this are mentally deranged and don’t deserve a place in society." We agree. Oddly enough, this isn't the first time a rumor about Stallone's demise has surfaced online. In September of 2016, talk of Stallone having been found dead at his Los Angeles home circulated all over Facebook. View Slideshow: 25 Times the Internet Killed Off a Celebrity We're just happy neither of these claims proved to be accurate. For one thing, we don't wish death of anyone. For another, we're psyched for Creed 2. And for another, if Stallone can't throw on some stars-and-strips shorts and defeat a steroid-using Russian boxer who killed his best friend... there's no hope at all to solve this latest version of the Cold War.

Jorge Nava and Anfisa Speak Out About Jorge's Arrest, Whether They're Together


Though fans have come to strongly suspect that Anfisa Arkhipchenko and Jorge Nava are still together, the couple hasn't actually verbally confirmed things, one way or the other. The controversial 90 Day Fiance couple has finally sat down to clear the air, in the video that you'll see below. What brought this on? Well, largely, the fact that Jorge Nava was arrested. Yes, the couple confirms the reports of Jorge's arrest. They caution fans against reading unverified accounts of the nature of his arrest (he reportedly had a massive amount of marijuana while in a state where it's illegal), but Jorge himself cannot really confirm much of the story. "The only thing I can confirm is that I was arrested on Feb. 7, and I was bailed out by my wife two days later." Obviously, talking about the charges against him could come back to bite him in court. "Other than that, due to the delicate nature of my case... I can’t talk about the details until all of this is over" Honestly, being leery of unverified reports is good advice for anyone. Anfisa then mentions that a number of commenters had asked about her green card status and how it might be impacted. Jorge clarifies that no, the arrest of one's American spouse does not somehow nullify someone's marriage or green card status. Anfisa then says "Sorry, haters" and looks pleased as punch. Seriously -- love Anfisa or hate her, but look at the expression on her face here. It's great. It's smug satisfaction, folks. This isn't the first time that Anfisa has told her haters to eat it. These two also want to resolve relationship questions. Before they actually speak about it, they share an on-camera kiss. Actually, three on-camera kisses. After the first one, Anfisa gives Jorge a weird look, pinches his nose, and then kisses him again. (The third kiss is at the end) We don't know what that's about. Like everything else about this relationship, it leaves us with questions. But yes, they really kiss. If you can't wait for the video below, here's the proof. Anfisa speaks up about their marriage: "Some time ago I made a post on my Instagram saying that I would like to keep my personal life private." Which, though an odd choice for a reality star, is totally her right. "But due to the crazy amount of speculation that’s going on, I just decided that it’s better to share with you that we’re still together, obviously." Not just still married, but still together. Anfisa then goes on to elaborate about their relationship. "We’ve never really broken up. Yes, we had our fights just like any other couple, but we’re working through it." That sounds healthy enough. "You know, everybody fights. Everybody is crazy. But that's how relationships are." That is ... not quite accurate. Not every relationship has fights like theirs. Not every relationship has fights, period. "All relationships are different. And if your relationship is different from ours, it doesn't give you the right to judge us or insult us in any way." Well, no, they shouldn't be insulted for having a different relationship. But at times, their relationship has seemed toxic. Some fans would argue that it's fair for them to be judged. Here's the video itself: [...]

Amber Portwood on Andrew Glennon: He Doesn't Cheat or Beat Me!


Talk about damning someone with faint praise. If you're a Teen Mom OG fan, then you're no doubt aware that Amber Portwood has dated a lot of losers. And it seems she's really lowered her standards as a result of spending so much time with the likes of Matt Baier. These days, Amber is dating Andrew Glennon, a former producer on Marriage Boot Camp. He's got a real job (or at least he did, until he quit to move to Indiana for Amber), so at already he's got a leg up on Baier and company. Amber is pregnant with Andrew's baby, and many fans are skeptical that she's yet again rushed headlong into a bad situation. But it seems Amber is of the opinion that she's finally found Mr. Right. And she's attempting to put her fans' minds at ease by citing some of the truly unimpressive ways in which Andrew is superior to her previous dudes. As The Ashley's Reality Roundup points out, Amber fought with Andrew about finding out the sex of their baby on a recent episode of TMOG. Many fans compared her behavior in that scene with a blowout fight between her and Matt that was captured by Marriage Boot Camp cameras. That prompted Amber to point out some important differences between the two relationships: “No matter how crazy I get I still love my man,” Amber wrote on Twitter about Andrew. “I don’t scream at Andrew lol…we’re so happy together.” “[Andrew] doesn’t hit me or cheat on me so yeah I treat him like a real man,” Amber wrote. “If you are a liar and cheater yeah bless your soul lol and get out of my way. From there, Amber went on to make a slightly more compelling case for Andrew, claiming that for the first time, she feels she can rely on her partner: "Thank god I have a good man to lean on now!” she continued. “No more drama and no more screaming! I don’t like men who are liars and cheaters so if I’m a bitch for standing up for myself then so be it…I’m very happy with myself; however, I found a man that is my rock…” So we guess that's a step in the right direction. Of course, Amber was always quick to defend Matt throughout that relationship, too. And we all know how that turned out... Watch Teen Mom OG online to remind yourself of just how bad Amber is at relationships. View Slideshow: Andrew Glennon: Amber Portwood's Baby Daddy Has a Seriously Sketchy Past [...]

Flight Makes Emergency Landing Due to Passenger Who Won't Stop Farting


Passenger 57? More like Flatulence 57, folks! Don't worry. This genius joke will make a lot more sense in just a few moments... According to multiple news outlets (who apparently lacked a lot of hard news to report on over the weekend), a Transavia Airlines pilot was forced to make an emergency landing on a flight from Dubai to Amsterdam Schiphol several days ago. The reason for said emergency landing? Two female passengers on board the plane continually asked another passenger to please stop passing gas. When this third passenger refused to do so, a loud argument broke out and gave the pilot no choice but to quell the smelly chaos by cutting the trip short. Following a warning from crew members that did not to prevent the farting or the subsequent fighting, the plane was diverted to Vienna Airport. Police boarded the plane after it landed and removed two women and two men that the pilot reported as “passengers on the rampage,” Metro reports. This publication adds that the two women were sisters and that authorities brought a dog on board as well, presumably because canines have an especially great senses of smell. And we guess such an ability would come in handy during this sort of situation. “We had no idea who these boys were, we just had the bad luck to be in the same row and we didn’t do anything," said Nora Lacchab, one of the women. She added: "All I will say is that the crew were really provocative and stirred things up." She and her sibling are thinking about filing a lawsuit against the airline. All four passengers were released from police custody without being charged. However, all have been banned from flying Transavia Airlines ever again. Said the company in a statement: "Our crew must ensure a safe flight. When passengers pose risks, they immediately intervene. Our people are trained for that. "They know very well where the boundaries are. Transavia is therefore square behind the cabin crew and the pilots." Makes sense to us. The thing is, we still don't know the name of the person who actually dealt the farts. In our experience, however, it was likely the same person who smelt them.

Kenya Moore: FIRED and Getting Replaced By Kim Zolciak?


The Real Housewives of Atlanta is apparently due for a major shake-up. Accusations claim that Kenya Moore faked an explosive meltdown to avoid getting fired, but it looks like it was all in vain. Because she's reportedly getting canned. And she's going to hate who's taking her place. Oh, wait -- she already does. Kenya Moore has been in hot water with producers and the network ever since her secret wedding to Marc Daly. Imagine, if you will, that one of the stars of Finding Bigfoot actually found a bigfoot and just decided to keep it secret and didn't tell anyone else or invite cameras along, and instead just kept their woodsy version of The Shape of Water quiet for a while. Well, that's the cryptozoological equivalent of what Kenya did. She's a reality star. The whole point of that is that major life events like weddings and children get documented for the cameras. She's compensated as a The Real Housewives of Atlanta star with a huge paycheck. Since her husband refuses to go on camera, she's been keeping an entire facet of her life off of the camera. RadarOnline reports that Kenye Moore is finally getting fired over her unseen husband. According to their source: "Kenya is not going to be back after she refused to let her husband be on the show." To be fair, though producers are understandably unhappy with Kenya, who literally signed up to be a reality star and share her life with the world, this isn't entirely on her. Marc Daly is the one who refuses to appear on the show. Kenya's done her best to stay interesting enough to keep her peach, even storming out in a rage at a hurricane relief event. But as much as Kenya's likely to hate leaving, she's going to hate her replacement even more. According to RadarOnline's source, Kim Zolciak will be returning from "friend of the Housewives" status to being a full Housewife again. "Kenya’s going to be replaced with Kim, who will most likely come back to the show as a full-time housewife and not just a friend." Earlier reports that Kim Zolciak was begging to return to RHOA indicate that Kim was probably delighted. According to this source, their reason for inviting Kim back is because she's a proven success. "Viewers know Kim. And they want someone to mix it up with the ladies. Someone new like Kim Fields did not work." What's more -- Kim Zolciak isn't shy about showing her whole, huge, family. "Kim will easily step up the drama that Kenya refused to give" From the outset, fans knew that Kenya Moore had to choose between her husband and her job. As we mentioned, this all stems from Marc Daly's refusal to let RHOA's cameras film him. His reason is apparently that he believes that The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrays black men in a negative light while portraying white men as better partners, husbands, and fathers. He has a point -- not only is a lot of reality television built around editing, but it's not like Real Housewives are chosen as representative samples of communities. Producers can cherrypick, consciously or subconsciously. And Marc Daly isn't the only person who's noticed this. Entire scholarly articles have been dedicated to the topic (yes, really), and on a broader level, many have observed that reality television tends to paint black people in particular in a negative light. Of course, none of that explains why Marc Daly and Kenya Moore decided to tie the knot despite this. As with any unconfirmed report, we should take this one with a grain of salt. People have been wondering since last summer if Kenya Moore would get the boot over this. It's no surprise that word is going around that she is, but right now, it's not confirmed. Similarly, Kim Zolciak is one of the most recognizable Housewives on RHOA, but that doesn't mean that she's actually coming back. Even though she really wants to. A lot can change leading up to an announcement. Maybe Keny[...]

Michelle Duggar: SLAMMED For Negligent Parenting!


Michelle Duggar is a busy woman. In addition to being the mother of an astonishing twenty children, Michelle is the queen of a multi-million dollar media empire. Of course, there are times when these two aspects of Michelle's life come into direct conflict with one another, and they collided in a major way last week. It all started when Michelle was invited to address a group of mothers at a religious retreat. She wrote about the experience on Facebook, and some fans took issue with the reality star's comments: "As a busy mom with a growing family through the years, I never imagined me being the one to talk to crowds! My days were filled with all the daily chores of being a mom," Michelle wrote. "Yet, I am so thankful for the opportunity to share our story with others and encourage moms in their faith, their marriages and raising their children." Seems innocent enough, right? Unfortunately for Michelle, pretty much nothing she does is above criticism. The issue this time is that many fans believe the Duggar matriarch is not as busy as she claims. For one thing, Michelle is known for having her older kids assist with parenting duties. It's a controversial method that she calls the buddy system. So in addition to their extensive lists of chores the older Duggar kids who are still at home are each assigned one younger child to look after. Jana Duggar seems to have been burdened with the majority of the house and has earned the nickname "the Cinderella Duggar" as a result of her tireless devotion to her younger siblings. “I love the show but let’s face it you couldn’t have raised such a big family without the older girls who did so much of the work,” wrote one fan on Michelle's Facebook post. “It is not a child’s job to be a mom for the younger siblings,” another remarked. “A child should do chores, have fun and go to school, homework is their job, not to be a mom’s replacement just because the parents were so selfish that they decided to have child after child.” “Wow I absolutely do not agree that a baby at 6 [months] should be weaned and then you work on its replacement,” a third remarked, adding:  “Having older daughters help is one thing but to just basically adopt out your infant is ridiculous.” Obviously, Michelle hasn't responded to the backlash, and as Duggar controversies go, this one is pretty minor. Still, it points to a growing trend that's likely got the whole family feeling a little uneasy these days. With just days to go until the premiere of Counting On Season 7, fans are not as forgiving of the Duggars flaws as they once were. That could mean trouble for a family whose livelihood depends on their reputation. Watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for what may well be the show's final season.

June Shannon: I'm Going BLIND!


Mama June only just got hot. We hope that she spent plenty of time admiring her new shape in the mirror, because she might never again see her reflection. In the clip below, June Shannon's boyfriend walks into the room to ask June what's wrong. It turns out that she's going blind. June Shannon is 38 years old. That's awfully young to be losing one's eyesight. Then again, she's also a grandmother -- Lauryn Shannon welcomed her baby girl last December. As you'll see in the video below, last week, June Shannon calls for her boyfriend. She's laying in bed, looking distrought ... but doesn't seem to be looking at anyone or anything. June's boyfriend, a man named Geno Doak, comes in to help. He looks concerned ... but he's also asking June if she's messing with him. He is, after all, fairly new to reality television. (There's really no way of knowing how much is planned, but while the actually blindness issues surely weren't planned, it's likely that this conversation was -- but that doesn't mean that it was rehearsed) June says that she's losing vision in her one good eye -- because her eyesight has been deteriorating for years. She describes a "black circle" obscuring what she sees. That's, um, alarming. "What if I lose sight in my good eye?" June openly worries. "I went totally blind in my right eye four years ago!" Geno helps June get up from her bed. (Her room, though sparsely decorated and with a pretty boring carpet, has a gorgeously bold wall painting choice -- we haven't really mentioned this before, but June Shannon's house has some great paint choices on the interior). June calls for Alana (that's Honey Boo Boo herself, folks) and the two of them head to the doctor. This is absolutely the right choice. There can be a number of causes for sudden blindness or near-blindness, and none of them are good. As we said, loss of vision can have a number of causes. (Non-fun fact: I once lost my vision for a matter of minutes -- did you know that some people lose their vision after riding roller coasters? It's called a "grey out." I didn't know that either until it happened to me, and I didn't know the term until years later) In June's case, the doctor diagnosed her with a detached retina. If your first thought was that Mama June was a victim of some sort of violence (she's opened up in the past, accusing Sugar Bear of having beaten her and her daughters), know that there can be a number of causes. One of the potential causes is good ol' inflammation. Another is neovascularization (the natural growth of new blood vessels). In any case, the solution is eye surgery, which was promptly ordered for Mama June. June Shannon is concerned over the idea of being disabled. "I don’t want to lose my independency," she says, unintentionally lightening the mood. A preview for the next episode shows Mama June Shannon wearing a white eye patch, complete with googly eyes. Technically, Mama June only has a 50% chance of restored vision after she recovers from surgery. Of course, we can all infer that this story has a happy ending, since Mama June flaunted her weight loss at a premiere just last month and didn't seem to have any trouble while she was doing it. Still, this must have been a terrifying experience for her. Take a look: [...]

Roseanne Barr to Fergie: HA! Even I Sang the National Anthem Better Than You!


By now, you've likely read the Internet's stunned and spirited reactions to Fergie's rendition of the national anthem prior to Sunday night's NBA All-Star Game. By now, you've also likely watched this controversial rendition of the national anthem. If not, well... prepare yourself to click PLAY and check it out below: Fergie National Anthem: The Worst of All-Time? Viewers should have been clued in to Fergie's plan before she even opened her mouth, considering the revealing attire the singer chose to wear for the occasion. It proved to be quite (form) fitting, as the Black-Eyed Pea went on to deliver what some believe to have been the worst Star-Spangled Banner performance in history... ... but which was definitely the most seductive. While Fergie tried to turn the persistent nature of the American flag into something sultry and sexy, cameras caught such stars as Jimmy Kimmel and Draymond Green reacting with a mixture of confusion, humor and horror. "Literally dying at these reactions. Fergie with the worst rendition ever," wrote one bemused Twitter user. Added @CoryTowns: "LMAOOOOOOOOO FERGIE SOUND LIKE A BODEGA CAT." Charles Barkley even joked on TNT that he needed a "cigarette" after witnessing Fergie pay her unique tribute to the country. But, hey, if Fergie's goal was to make headline, she certainly accomplished that much, right? The criticism has grown to such an extent, however, that even Roseanne Barr has gone ahead and chimed in on the debacle. Yes, the same Roseanne Barr who very likely did give us the absolute worst national anthem rendition in the history of the world. It took place in 1990 right before the first pitch of a San Diego Padres game... it was more off-key than the most nauseating of American Idol auditions... it ended with a crotch grab ... and it even caused President George H.W. Bush to label the entire act as “disgraceful.”  Before we get to what Barr said about Fergie, it's worth reliving this trainwreck. Check it out here: Roseanne Barr National Anthem Fail Still, despite whatever the heck one would call THIS nonsense, Roseanne happily jumped on board the Fergie hate train last night. “Who saw Fergie’s national anthem performance at the NBA All Star Game?" she Tweeted, adding: "I think mine was better lowkey.” Barr, of course, is actually bringing her formerly beloved sitcom back to the air in a few weeks, so we understand why she would want to chime in and make herself relevant again here. It's a form of promotion for the series. But it's also flat-out ridiculous. Go ahead and watch that Roseanne performance again. It's disrespectful and abhorrent. It's a a blatant attempt to make a mockery out of our country's theme song. Say what you want about Fergie here, but she was mostly just trying to be different. She was trying to put a unique spin on an old favorite. She may have wanted all male viewers to feel something rising in their crotches while they listened, but at least she didn't actually grab her crotch and then spit on the ground. Roseanne really did this after finishing her version of the song. You can contrast it with other national anthem performances below, but there's no doubt in our minds at all: She loses.

Kailyn Lowry to Jenelle Evans: Hey, Remember When I Bailed You Out of Jail?


At this point, the Jenelle Evans-Kailyn Lowry feud has been going on so long that it's easy to forget they were once friends. But believe it or not, there was a time when the Teen Mom 2 co-stars were thick as thieves. Which is fitting, since Jenelle has an arrest record about as long as that of a career criminal. The Carolina Hurricane has been taken into custody so many times that we're guessing even she's lost count. But there's one arrest that very much remains on the mind of Jenelle's biggest rival, and she took to Twitter to talk about it over the weekend. "Do y'all remember the time I gave Jenelle money to make bail?" Kailyn tweeted. She then dropped a phrase that she's adopted as her unofficial motto: "Before you throw dirt on my name remind them how hard you f-cked [with] me." The incident Kailyn is referring to took place in 2011 when Jenelle was arrested for probation violation. Lowry apparently lent Evans $150 to cover the cost of bail. Not a ton of cash, but this was before the girls were as rich as they are now. Needless to say, the comments on Kail's tweet were very interesting. At one point, Jenelle's troubled ex Courtland Rogers weighed in with what first seemed like trash talk, but later appeared to be words of support: "I remember the time u called her a bitch to her face in New York that time behind the stage at dr drew reunion and she froze up and was scared to death of u but kail what u don't kno is that when u went on stage all she did was talk mad shit about u! she ain't s--t don’t stress," Rogers tweeted. You know the drama is real when even the tweets have plot twists. Jenelle and Kail's mutual hatred has ebbed and flowed over the years, and it seems to have spiked recently when Evans sent cease and desist letters to several of her co-stars, including Lowry. It's unclear what prompted Kail's seemingly unprovoked tweet on Saturday. It's possible she was just sitting around contemplating how much she dislikes Jenelle, which frankly, is one of our favorite weekend activities.
