Shanna Moakler Says She Got A False Positive On Her Pregnancy Test

March 24, 2022 / Posted by:

If any of Shanna Moakler’s Celebrity Big Brother contestants (maybe save for Todrick Hall) were hoping to hook up Shanna with a handful of Diaper Genie refills and burp cloths from a baby registry, well, they will be putting their credit cards back in their wallets today. Earlier this month, Shanna revealed that a recently taken pregnancy test showed that she was pregnant. But she’s amending that statement, saying that she’s not in fact as pregnant as she was led to believe, and the test bounced back a false positive.

Shanna’s pregnancy test news came at a truly rough time in her life. It came just one week after 46-year-old Shanna had gotten into a messy situation with her 28-year-old boyfriend Matthew Rondeau, which ended with Matthew being arrested for felony domestic violence. Shanna already has three children: 22-year-old Atiana De La Hoya (her dad is Oscar De La Hoya), and 18-year-old Landon and 16-year-old Alabama, that she shares with her ex-husband Travis Barker.

Before Matthew was arrested, he threw up a video to social media where he accused her of sneaking around behind his back and spending a little too much time with her next door neighbor. I was sure we were on the cusp of a brown manila envelope moment, where Maury pulled out the results of a paternity test between Matthew and Neighbor Man. But that won’t be necessary. via People magazine:

In a statement, obtained by PEOPLE on Wednesday, the Celebrity Big Brother star, 46, said: “OK, I am not pregnant. I received a false positive test due to the fact I had taken a hormone called HCG to help me lose weight for Big Brother. It is the same hormone that is produced when a woman is pregnant resulting in the false positive.”

Shanna was also seen again with Matthew Rondeau in Rhode Island a few weeks ago, but sources tell UsWeekly that she definitely wasn’t there to see him, but was visiting family.

Shanna adds that while she is not pregnant right now, she’s open to the idea in the future. And Shanna’s hypothesis of a false pregnancy might be correct. People writes that HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is often called the “pregnancy hormone,” because it comes from cells that are produced in the placenta. Most women take HCG for fertility issues, but People says that it’s not uncommon for some to take products containing HCG for weight loss.

In the event a person is not actively gulping down supplements with HCG, the people at Clearblue note that a true false positive on a pregnancy test is incredibly rare. But, they concur that it becomes more likely if someone is taking medications that contain traces of HCG. Like Shanna allegedly was! Except maybe Shanna shouldn’t have been. According to the deliciously-named Mayo Clinic, HCG has not been approved for over-the-counter use, and it hasn’t been proven to assist in weight loss or management. So really, Shanna might have been taking something that only made her wallet skinnier. Shanna should sue for damages! Shanna’s magic weight loss pills tripped up a pregnancy test, which she had to buy. But then Shanna had to call her publicist (again, expensive), who had to notify People magazine and arrange a formal statement on the matter. Then Shanna had to do it all again when she realized that her test results were bogus! At the very least, she might get store credit for the pills.
