College students Teoing

You’ve heard of Tebowing and Planking, now there’s a new trend: Te’oing.

College students can be cruel.. especially if you’re a pathological liar like Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o, who got caught in a huge lie about a girlfriend who does not exist.

Minutes after Deadspin exposed Te’o as a fraud — the Internet exploded with memes of college student Te’oing with their invisible girlfriends. Some pranksters even uploaded photos of themselves proposing to their invisible women.

Karrueche launch party

Chris Brown’s other woman, Karrueche Tran, is set to launch her clothing line ‘The Kill’ at a party in Atlanta tonight. The only problem is her clothing line doesn’t really exist — except in boxes in a storage facility somewhere in LA.

Aside from the fact that Brown has withdrawn his support of her clothing line — on orders from Rihanna — The Kill is already a registered brand. But threats of lawsuits doesn’t matter to someone like Karrueche when a club promoter is waving dollars under her nose.

Not So Blind Item

These are not my words. They belong to Crazy Days and Nights.

“This A++ list rap star was asked about being faithful to his wife. The star said that he is faithful when he is actually with his wife. As in the same house or out together. Otherwise everything is fair game. Apparently this is why he has no issues spending time with the celebrity who is going to have a great record. Ten tracks. Ten different guys she has slept with.

Manti Teo Lennay Kekua

A former Notre Dame football star whose story of triumph over tragedy inspired millions was exposed as a fraud Wednesday. Manti Te’o, the runner up for the Heisman trophy, told the media his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, 22, and his grandmother died within hours of each other in September.

“I miss ’em, but I know that I’ll see them again one day,” he told ESPN before Notre Dame was blown out by Alabama in the college football’s BCS National Championship in Miami on January 7.

The gifted linebacker became the face of the BCS title game as he spun his web of lies about Kekua. He made national headlines when he said his “girlfriend” suffered serious injuries in a car crash a month before she died of leukemia in Hawaii.
