The guy admitted his prank in a Facebook post last night.

He said his hoax taught him not to trust the news media who gets most of their stories from social media nowadays.

He wrote: "It goes to show that an average joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease."

Beyonce photobombs fan

Earlier this week, Beyonce's frenzied Stans praised her for making a young fan's entire life by photobombing her "selfie" during a live concert in Australia. Almost immediately after a video GIF and photos of the alleged photobomb went viral online, critics and bloggers voiced doubts that the photobomb was genuine.

One blogger even pointed out the timing of the shot and how no one -- not even Beyonce -- could posed for a photo in 2 seconds while in mid-yodel.

When the Beyonce photobombing pandemonium reached critical mass online, the fan in the infamous selfie -- 15-year-old Valentina -- finally stepped forward to admit the whole thing was staged.

Manti Teo Katie Couric interview

Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o told Katie Couric he "briefly" lied about his dead girlfriend even after he learned she didn't exist.

"Katie, put yourself in my situation," he said, "I, my whole world told me that she died on Sept. 12. Everybody knew that. This girl, who I committed myself to, died on Sept. 12."

But his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, did not exist. It was all a hoax.

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.

The national media -- and in particular, the sports networks, tripped over themselves in their rush to uplift Te'o as a symbol of hope over adversity, or whatever.

Eagle snatches baby

UPDATE: The sleuths over at Gawker.com debunked the viral video of an eagle snatching a baby. The baby is a rag doll and the bird is not even an eagle, it's a falcon.

Statement by renowned bird expert Kenn Kaufman:

"'A golden eagle tries to snatch a baby in Montreal,' and the video goes viral. But it's faked. Golden Eagle is a scarce visitor in the Montreal area, but the bird in the video is not a Golden Eagle, nor anything else that occurs in the wild in North America. This was clearly a setup: using a falconer's bird, and probably a fake toddler for the distant scene. With all the ignorance about nature that's out there already, the last thing we need is this kind of stupid garbage."

You gon' learn to listen to your auntie when I tell you something...

According to gossip website TMZ, American Idol winner Jennifer Hudson is calling BS on the Mariah/Nicki Minaj fake feud. I agree with J-Hud. It's funny how the media (and bloggers) run wild with every silly thing these celebrities do for attention.

I hate to say I told you so... According to published reports, Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce from troubled NFL star Chad Johnson. Lozada and Johnson tied the knot on July 4 in St. Martin.

It was obvious from the start that Lozada would find a way to end the fraudulent marriage to Johnson. Most women marry for love. Evelyn Lozada married for fame and money.

Whether Johnson, 34, was in on the scheme to defraud the public is unknown. There is the possibility that Lozada, 42, fooled Johnson -- just like she fooled the public -- before her scheming literally blew up in her face.

Karma is real.

Story developing ...

Didn't I tell you that Basketball Wives cast member Jennifer Williams would drop her fake "bitch slap" lawsuit against Nia Crooks when the season ended? VH1 and Bravo will continue to produce degrading "reality" shows as long as their gullible viewers continue watching.

From Fresh:

Unconfirmed rumors suggest Jennifer Williams was not being asked back for another season of Basketball Wives after she filed a lawsuit against Evelyn Lozada's assistant, Nia Crooks, for slapping her face during an episode of the show [click here if you missed that].

Now, after a rough summer of having her Bentley repossessed and her estranged husband Eric's secret baby put on blast, Jennifer decided she's just had enough and has dropped the suit without settlement.
