hoax

Were you fooled by the guy who claimed he was blocked on Facebook because of his name, "Phuc Dat Bich"?

I mean, come on. How could you fall for that one?

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."

The son of 1980s R&B singer Miki Howard claims to be the illegitimate son of pop icon Michael Jackson. Brandon Howard, 31, will release DNA evidence today "proving" he is Michael's son on a website that is affiliated with gossip blog TMZ.com. By coincidence, this bizarre report originated on TMZ. But other, more credible media outlets are picking up the story as if it is a fact.

Brandon, a struggling R&B singer, claims to have culled Michael's DNA from a dental device. He claims the DNA proves he is Michael's son.

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 Ronaiah Tuiasosopo Katie Couric

Deadspin.com just posted audio of voice mails left by alleged hoaxer Ronaiah Tuiasosopo on the cell phone of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o.

If you haven't been following this bizarre story, click here.

The NY Daily News reported this morning that Tuiasosopo's attorney admitted his client "disguised his voice" as a woman in order to fool Te'o for 3 years.

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.

Katie Couric's full interview with Te'o will air on Thursday (check your local listings for the station and time). It should be noted that both Couric and Te'o have the same agent.

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.

I can't stop laughing at these two fools! They will do anything to promote their wack reality show.

From TMZ.com:

Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1's "Basketball Wives."

Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument, says the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and when cops arrived to the scene, Lozada had lacerations on her forehead.

Our sources say Lozada has been at the hospital for several house and her injury required stitches.

According to our sources, the fight started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the center of the couple's Maserati and confronted Johnson about it. A verbal argument ensued.

We're told at some point during the argument, Johnson head-butted Lozada. According to reports, Johnson told police he butted heads with Lozada by accident.

Johnson is reportedly still in custody and wil have to go before a judge before he can be released.

Johnson and Lozada were married last month in Miami after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.

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.

    Hi sandra,
    I have solid proof that "Joseline Hernandez" of 'Love Hip Hop Atlanta' was born a man. "Joe" and I went to the same high school. Attached is a photo scan of his HS yearbook picture before the surgeries. (Please don't publish his pic!) I was close to him in high school. Here is my contact info. Let's talk.

    It all started in 2010 when Evelyn Lozada's "rep" emailed me a photo of Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco on their first "date" in Miami.

    The guy was concerned that Evelyn's latest publicity stunt wasn't catching fire quick enough with the public. He asked me to write a post revealing Evelyn's "new love interest on the show." I obliged because it was a scoop -- even though the guy explained to me that the relationship was a fraud.

    "Do you think [the public] will buy it?" he asked.

    Now pretty much everyone in the free world knows that Evelyn and Chad's engagement is a fraud -- including luxury Miami hotel and resorts where the show's producers have been frantically searching for a location to hold their fake wedding.

    According to British tabloid Mail Online, musician Kanye West is very unhappy with the reception he is receiving in London, England.

    Reality TV personality Kim Kardashian is drawing big crowds -- and all of the attention -- over in London, where she is promoting her jewelry line.

    But Kanye is a narcissist who hates to share the spotlight with other narcissists. The "Theraflu" rapper looked very unhappy as Kim giggled with delight at all the attention she was receiving from the Brits. Kim took pictures with fans as she entered BBC Radio 1 Studios with Kanye early this morning.

    Making matters even worse for Kanye, one of the BBC's security officers dissed Kanye who tried to get by him on his way into the BBC offices.

    According to the NY Post's gossip column Page Six, Vogue editor-for-life, Anna Wintour, banned reality Tv star Kim Kardashian from attending her celebrity-studded MET Costume Gala on Monday. Good for her! At least somebody in the media has good taste and common sense.

    Kardashian's bestie, rapper Kanye West, attended the event solo, wearing a black tux but no Kim on his arm. This led many to guess correctly that their relationship is indeed just a publicity stunt.

    Kim fueled the gossip even further when she tweeted: "So excited to see all the fashion going on in New York tonight at the MET!"-- leading many to believe that she was attending -- or at least standing across the street watching as the stars rolled up in their limos.

    But nothing could be further from the truth: Kim was actually thousands of miles away -- in L.A. So why would she lie about seeing the stars in their beautiful fashions? The answer is simple: Kim is a narcissist who lies about everything.

    Remember last weekend when the paparazzi caught troubled rapper Kanye West with his pants down around his thighs as he emerged from a chauffeured limo with bestie, Kim Kardashian? Well, Kim has an explanation for that.

    From E! Online:

    "He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy," says Kim, Kanye's frequent companion as of late, in an exclusive interview with E! News at E!'s upfronts presentation.

    "It's called a wardrobe malfunction," sister Kourtney explains to her sibling.

    "It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional," Kim says. "It was not scandalous."

    Photos: GOT

    Yeah, right, Kim. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the rumors that the show's producers predict your fake relationship with Kanye is not going to be enough to save the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?

    As you know, once a female narcissist latches onto to her next victim she moves quickly to get him to put that ring on her finger. 2 weeks is about the average length of time she will wait for him to "prove his love" and pop the question.

    From US Weekly:

    Just one month after going public with their romance, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are "very serious," a source tells the new Us Weekly -- as in, ready to pick out rings.

    Although the reality star, 31, has yet to finalize her divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries, she and the rapper, 34, "are talking marriage," says the source. (Over the weekend, Kardashian jetted back from Washington, DC, where she was a guest at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday, to be by West's side for a Sunday performance of Broadway's Wicked.)

    Hapless NBA star Kris Humphries wants to prove that Kim Kardashian was never in love with him, and used him for reality TV ratings.

    RadarOnline reports exclusively that Humpries wants to know if his soon-to-be-ex-wife's relationship with music mogul Kanye West is just another publicity stunt to reel in gullible viewers to her show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    The Kardashians just signed a new 3-year $40 million contract with E! Online. No doubt, the contract hinged upon Kim finding a famous sucker to date her.

    And since Hollywood's eligible bachelors and professional athletes avoided Kim like the plague, Kim turned to her bestie Kanye to play the part.

    Humphries is angry and humiliated that he didn't realize his own marriage was just a stunt. He honestly thought that marrying a woman a barely knew -- and living with her and her sister in a hotel suite was normal.

    Men lie, women lie, body language doesn't.

    I'm no expert, but it is obvious from the body language of reality personality Kim Kardashian that she is not in love with rap producer Kanye West.

    As Dr. Lillian Glass, a renowned expert on body language points out: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have zero chemistry together.

    From HollywoodLife.com:

    HollywoodLife.com caught up with the top body language expert after Kim and Kanye public displayed their love in NYC at Scott Disick‘s restaurant opening, and she tells us that they’re turning up the heat for the E! cameras!

    “No matter what anyone says the body doesn’t lie,” Dr. Glass tells us. “Kanye and Kim may be holding hands and may be all smiles for the camera but the truth is they are looking in different directions which means they are not like minded. There is too much physical space between them. When people are truly into one another you don’t know where one ends and the other begins.”

    Even though the two of them are smiling and holding hands Dr. Glass says there’s no chemistry between them.

    “There is a stiffness in Kim’s body language,” Dr. Glass the author of Toxic People and Toxic Men adds. “You don’t feel the chemistry between the two of them. No matter how [many] KW earring sets she wears we are not feeling it because neither are they.

    While there may be a lot of lust going on behind closed doors, the emotional and mental connection required in a deep relationship seems to be lacking in my view.”

    *(bold emphasis mine)

    Remember that 'pregnant man' who was actually born a female who gave birth to a baby, which is natural for females, but the media typically spun the story out of control because she claimed she was a man?

    Well, 2 more kids later, and 'pregnant man' Thomas Beatie, 38, has split from 'his' wife Nancy, 49, according to People magazine.

    People explains that the break up occurred during the taping of a reality tv show called The Doctors in which Beatty also said he had undergone a final female-to-male gender reassignment surgery.

    During the episode, which airs on May 7, Beatty says her now estranged wife hasn't seen "the new me yet."

    "Like all marriages, we have our ups and downs, and we’re going through a rough patch right now. At the moment, we’re separated."

    This sounds exactly like a BBQ Wives publicity stunt designed to get gullible viewers to tune in to their boring show.

    I'll take 'Desperate Stunt' for $500, Alex.

    Anyone with common sense can see that Kim Kardashian needs a miracle to save her reality TV career. Most of America has tuned out and dismissed the Kardashians as a family who will do anything for money and attention.

    Just in time for the upcoming season of "Kourtney and Kim Take NY", Kim, who has more tricks up her sleeve than magician Criss Angel, has pulled Kanye West out of her hat. And Kanye is more than happy to play the role of useful idiot to get in good with the Kardashian klan.

    Even the most levelheaded Kardashian -- Khloe -- is playing along with Kim and Kanye's publicity stunt.

    Two narcissists in love? Not in a million years!

    From US Weekly:

    Stranger things have happened. A pal tells the new Us Weekly, out now, that Jay-Z's close friend and collaborator West, 34, has fallen "genuinely head over heels" for Kardashian, 31, with whom he was photographed gallivanting around NYC late last week.
    "It's not a PR stunt," the source insists of the rapper and reality star. "They're perfect for each other. He thinks she's his Beyonce!"

    They couldn't get our attention by themselves, so Kim Kardashian and musician Kanye West have teamed up to play the media like a fiddle.

    Kardashian, whose sordid past is littered with foolish men, was a guest on the Today show on Friday.

    When asked by Today show co-host Ann Curry if she and Kanye West are an item, Kardashian, 31, said coyly, "Kanye and I have been friends for years. ... You never know what the future holds."

    I'm going to guess that's a no.

    But isn't that what we expected her to say? Most people who are in love don't mind shouting it from the rooftops.

    Seriously, do you see any love in their eyes when they're together? They don't even have that Dopamine glow that most young lovers confuse for love.

    Does she even know what love is?

    "I love really hard. I fall hard, and I followed my heart," Kardashian said. "When things don't work out, that's sometimes just how life is. What's the point in dragging something out ... when you know that it's just not it for you?"

    Mirlande Wilson must be the unluckiest woman in Maryland.

    Imagine winning part of a $640 million lottery and telling your work lottery pool that you refuse to share the winnings with them because you bought the ticket on your own -- only to end up losing the ticket.

    Wilson, a McDonald's worker who claimed to be one of three winners of last week's historic Mega Millions jackpot, now says she can't find the winning ticket.

    She told the New York Post: "I have no idea where it is. I’m not sure I have it. I’m still looking for it. I haven’t even looked in my uniform pants yet."

    Not for one minute do I believe that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are really dating. But the rumor does make for interesting blog fodder.

    According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye were seen leaving a movie theater together in NYC yesterday. I guess that amounts to a romance in the celebrity world. But in the real world, their "date" is a mere publicity stunt contrived by two narcissists to grab headlines.

    Coincidentally, their "date" occurred on the same day (at the very hour) that Kanye dropped a new, disjointed, uptempo tune called "Theraflu" -- in which he proclaims his "love" for the self-obsessed reality star.

      And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim
      ’Round the same time she fell in love with him.
      Well that’s cool, baby girl, do your thing,
      Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.
