A Belgian TikToker Faked His Own Death To Teach His Family And Friends About The Importance Of Keeping In Touch
It sucks when you feel ignored by your friends and family. Why won’t they respond to your texts? Check in with you during tough times? Invite you to their parties? For 45-year-old Belgian TikToker David Baerten, enough was enough. How daaare his so-called “loved ones” avoid him?! It was time to teach everyone a lesson via an elaborate prank where he fakes his death (with the help of his wife and kids) and then helicopters into his own funeral. “Surprise, I’m alive!” Errr, “Surpendre! Je suis en vie!”
Priscilla Presley Says Bam Margera’s Claim That She Gave Him Elvis’ Robe And Ring When He Visited Her Home Was A Lie, And Bam Responded
Priscilla Presley has enough on her plate these days, between coming to grips with the tragic passing of her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, and deciding to fight her granddaughter for control of LMP’s life insurance money. So, being roped into the fart cloud that is Bam Margera’s cantankerous and exhausting orbit was probably the last thing she needed right now (or ever). Alas, Bam recently ended up at Priscilla’s house because he WAS friends with her son, Navarone Garcia. Bam posted pics of him and Priscilla on Instagram and implied they were tight, and soon after, claimed she gave him a ring and robe that belonged to Elvis Presley. But, Priscilla just spoke up and said that everything Bam claimed was a lie–she doesn’t even know him and was just cordial with him since Navarone brought him over, and she agreed to the pics with him because Bam said his dad was a big fan. She also lamented that Bam filmed in her home without her consent, she would NEVER give away Elvis’ personal possessions, and the ring and robe weren’t even Elvis’. Bam then apologized to them both and said it was actually Navarone who gifted him Elvis’ stuff, but Priscilla says she and Nav are both completely done with Bam and his clout-chasing messiness.
Watch out, disgraced Grey’s Anatomy writer who faked cancer. Someone’s coming for your gig! Her name is Susan Meachen, she’s an aspiring romance novelist, and over two years ago, her “daughter” took to Facebook to share that she had died by suicide. Very sad. Until yesterday, when Insider reports Susan suddenly re-appeared on social media to reveal that, oops, she was actually alive this whole time! All signs point to Susan faking her own death to sell more books. Unsurprisingly, friends, colleagues, and people on the Internet are outraged. Hmmm, so maybe there is such a thing as bad publicity.
Those no-good TikTok kids are at it again! This holiday season, people are pranking their parents by telling them that their favorite celebrities are dead. The script usually goes as follows — Child, looking at phone: “OMG. Mom!! Bon Jovi reported dead at 60!” Mom: “WHAAAAAAAAAA?!?! NOOOOO!!! I have nothing left to live for!!!!” Child: *snickers* Mom: “Are you joking? I’ll kill you!” The odd time, a particularly clever prankster will throw in a cause of death (lots of car crashes and heart attacks). While these videos are controversial, Newsweek reports that the hashtag #celebritydeathprank has almost 89 billion views on TikTok. Continue reading
Back in March, the world was introduced to the wild saga of Elisabeth Finch, a writer on Grey’s Anatomy and former writer on True Blood. The Ankler accused 44-year-old Elisabeth (blue hairnet lady in the header pic) of lying about battling a rare type of bone cancer, her brother committing suicide, a kidney loss, and having an abortion during chemotherapy. Elisabeth didn’t just weave her web of lies to friends; she wrote about them in personal essays for Elle, The Hollywood Reporter, and Shonda Rhimes’ website, Shondaland. Some of her tales actually made it into Grey’s Anatomy storylines. After The Ankler’s report, Grey’s put Elisabeth on administrative leave and ABC’s parent company, Disney, announced that they planned to investigate. She resigned before they could and checked herself into an in-patient treatment center in Arizona. Now, nine months later, Elisabeth has finally fessed up to all her bullshit in an interview with The Ankler. Spoiler alert: she did it for the attention.
This morning, The Sun reported that there was going to be a sequel to The Holiday (2006), and all the main cast members had signed on to reprise their roles including Kate Winslet, the semi-retired Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, and Jude Law (aka Britain’s answer to Nick Cannon). But before rom-com fans could celebrate, that no-good Grinch Nancy Meyers took to Instagram to ruin the fun. 72-year-old Nancy, who wrote and directed the original movie, added this caption to a screenshot of the “news” story: “So many DM’s about this – sorry but it’s not true.” Then she limited Instagram comments, probably because she was getting death threats from horny Jack Black fans. They call themselves “Jackers,” and they’re TERRIFYING.
