13 Reality TV Hoaxes You Totally Fell For

You thought what you were watching on reality television was 100% real, only to later learn the devastating truth.

We've all been there. And now we can all be here: relive the most shocking reality TV show hoaxes in history below...

1. Dance Moms Dance moms We’ll just let Maddie Ziegler, arguably the show's top performer, lay it right out for you, courtesy of an interview with USA Today: "The producers set it up to make us all yell at each other. You know how I said that moms do fight? The moms have a fake fight sometimes. Afterward they just start talking and laugh about it." Host Abby Lee Miller really does suck, however. that's not fake. 2. House Hunters House hunters Bobi Jensen blogged in 2012, on a site titled “Hooked on Houses,” that her experience on House Hunter was totally contrived. Turns out, the couple had selected its home prior to appearing on the show and producers even changed Jensen’s story over why she was moving. 3. Breaking Amish Breaking amish Can we change the title of this TLC series to "Having Already Broken Amish?"

Ghost Adventures Ghost adventures Ghost Adventures star Aaron Goodwin was fired in 2014 after he stopped by the podcast Are We Alone and explained how the network staged reactions, sound effects and other aspects of the program.

Maisie Williams Got Naked on Game of Thrones ... And the Internet Didn't Know...

Sunday night's episode of Game of Thrones gave viewers plenty to talk about.

Brienne became a knight; Dany learned that she's been banging her nephew (or neph-boo, if you prefer), and Tormund filled everyone in on the magical properties of giant boobs.

Arya on Season 8

(Those are boobs found on mythical giantesses, not merely large breasts ... though we suppose those are magical in their own right.)

But there was one scene that the internet just can't seem to agree on -- and it seems some folks found it off-putting for reasons that they struggled to articulate.

As you may have guessed we're talking about Maisie Williams' sex scene.

Arya Stark

Yes, Arya Stark relinquished her V-card to handy hottie Gendry, and many viewers didn't know what to think.

While it's unclear what Arya's exact age is supposed to be at this stage in the story, Maisie Williams is 22, and is thus free to get as freaky on camera as she desires.

And her sex scene was far more modest than some of the softcore action we've seen on Thrones over the years.

Arya Looking Sinister

The season premiere, for example, featured the character of Bronn being mounted by three nude prostitutes as they gleefully discussed the gory fate of Ed Sheeran's much-maligned soldier.

And of course, no one had a problem with that because this is Game of Thrones, a show where sex and violence are so intertwined that there are multiple central characters who have had their dongs lopped off.

And yet, Williams' consensual sex scene, complete with pre-coital discussion of previous experiences has generated controversy in some corners of Twitter.

Arya Meme 1

Yes, because the internet is a hotbed of Freudian hangups that the world's most skilled psychologists could never hope to make sense of, some reported that they were upset by the scene.

It seems these weirdos felt as though they were watching a sex scene involving not the actress Maisie Williams, but the character Arya Stark -- and they reacted as though they'd just learned a beloved younger relative was gettin' it in with the local blacksmith.

Thankfully, these people were in the minority (and some, like the ones we've chosen to feature here, were merely engaging in some lighthearted ribbing).

Arya Meme 2

For the most part, fans were happy to see the long-suffering Arya enjoy a pleasurable experience and enter a new stage in her life -- and they were quick to point out that it was all very well-deserved.

"Had this discussion at lunch," one person tweeted.

"Co-worker said she still thought of her as a young girl. I said I had not thought of her that way since she single-handedly massacred all of House Frey. Which they deserved."

Both Arya and Maisie also enjoyed a great deal of support across the internet.

Arya Meme 3

The always-brilliant folks at Bossip sounded off on the matter, as did Missandei actress Nathalie Emmanuel

"@Maisie_Williams and Arya having agency over her own sexuality like all women should literally gave me liiiifeee," Emmanuel tweeted.

But the best reaction of the night likely belongs to Sophie Turner, who's spent the better part of the past decade portraying Maisie's onscreen sister, Sansa Stark.

Sophie Turner on Maisie Williams Sex Scene

"In honor of Easter, I guess Game Of Thrones wanted the storyline to have a little Easter bunny hop, hop, hopping into that p--sy," Sansa told the camera.

We love it.

A girl has no V-card, and we're sure Maisie is deeply proud of her empowering scene.

Of course, according to horror movie rules, Arya is now that much more likely to get iced in the battle with the White Walkers, but that's a conversation for next week.

Kim Kardashian: See Why Fans Think She Just Confessed to Cheating!

Usually, when there's some controversy over a Kim Kardashian Instagram photo it's because the soon-to-be mother of four is showing what some folks consider to be too much skin.

(Some people apparently believe Kim should dress like a Duggar at all times simply because she's a mom. These people are jackasses.)

Kimye at the Cher Show

These days, however, there's a renewed focus on Kim's beliefs and actions, rather than just her appearance.

(Sadly, in 2019, strangers on the internet are going to find something to shame you for.)

Most of the criticism has had to do with Kim's efforts to become a lawyer, as many seem to believe she's not up to the task intellectually.

Kim Kardashian Discusses Parenting

Apparently, they don't think you need to be all that bright in order to build a multimillion-dollar media empire so massive it makes your entire family rich and famous.

This week, however, there's a new controversy, and it stems from the belief that Kim cheated -- on her first husband, Kris Humphries.

Allow us to explain:

Kim-Kanye Throwback

That's a photo posted by popular Instagram account The Shade Room.

As you can see, Kim commented, "Always had [eyes] for him" in reference to the way that she appears to be undressing Kanye with her eyes here.

The only problem is, Kim and Kanye were not yet married when this photo was taken -- at least not to one another.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for Versace

Kim was still married to Kris Humphries at this point, and Kanye was dating Amber Rose -- and these facts were not lost on many of the pics commenters.

"He was with Amber then," wrote one IG user.

"But you were married in this picture," remarked another.

"To the point you violate his relationship but okay," a third screeched.

Boobs! And a Smile!

One fan claimed to have sensed sparks between these two way back when this pic was snapped in 2011.

"Yep, I remember this and the look they gave each other. I was like uh uhn," the follower remarked.

Another questioned Kim's claim that the attraction was always mutual:

"Stop lying he had an eye for you the feeling wasn’t mutual from day 1," the commenter wrote, adding:

Very Serious Kimye

"#beforreal and I love you guys but don’t do it for the gram mama."

Needless to say, a lot of people are reading a whole lot into this photo.

But is there any truth to the claim that Kim cheated on Kris with Kanye?

We doubt it. Mostly because the marriage only lasted 74 days.

Hardly enough time for an affair.

Game of Thrones: Who is About to Die!? (Unofficial Odds)

It is about to go down, Game of Thrones fans.

We know you've been thinking this from the outset of Season 8, sitting back each of the last two Sunday nights and assuming someone important to the story was about to be killed off.

But now everyone is in place.

Now memories have been shared and emotional conversations have been had and the Night King has made his way to Winterfell - and there's no longer any debate:

The battle to end all battles is set to take place on Episode 3. This takes us back to the quesion that started the season:

Who will make it out of this uber fight alive?

And who, tragically, will not?

With anticipation building to an all-time high for this upcoming installment, we've handicapped all the major players below.

The characters are ranked from least likely to meet their demise to most likely/virtually guaranteed to kick it next weekend.

Example: 8,000-1 odds aren't great ... you'd win $8,000 if you bet $1. Flip side: 4-1 odds (bet $1 to win $4) are more solid.

So now that winter is fully here, here's who we think will end up in a perpetual freeze after The Battle at Winterfell ...

1. Samwell Tarly? Sams concerned He can't die because he's the George R.R. Martin surrogate for this story. Also, everyone loves Sam!!!!!!!! ODDS OF SAM DYING IN THE BATTLE: 8,000-1. 2. Gilly? Gilly in the cold Don't even joke about this. ODDS OF GILLY DYING IN THE BATTLE: 1,500-1. 3. Daenerys? A khaleesi moment No. Just... no. Not yet. We need to find out how she reacts to that whole I've-been-banging-my-nephew-and-he's-the-rightful-heir thing before she meets her demise -- if she even does this season. ODDS OF DANY DYING IN THE BATTLE: 1,000-1. 4. Bran? Bran ruminates We wish. Talk about a major buzzkill! But, despite the Three-Eyed Raven being used as bait, he most definitely has more of a role to play after this battle is over. ODDS OF BRAN DYING IN THE BATTLE: 750-1. 5. Sansa? Everybodys eating She'll be in the crypt, so logistics say no. There's clearly a lot to mine between her and Dany and Jon still, too. ODDS OF SANSA DYING IN THE BATTLE: 350-1. 6. Arya? Arya Based on horror movie rules of someone losing her/his virginity and then being killed off, her fate would appear to be sealed. But the Night King must be on her list ... and you did see that awesome weapon she now possesses, right? ODDS OF ARYA DYING IN THE BATTLE: 300-1. View Slideshow

Jussie Smollett Was Framed and Defamed by Chicago Police, Argues Brother

At the very end of January, reports shared that Jussie Smollett had been the victim of a brutal hate crime.

He was later arrested on suspicion that he had staged his own attack, though prosecutors dropped all charges against him.

Now, his brother is making a powerful argument in Jussie's defense. And he might have a point.

Jussie Smollett Waves

In a guest post shared by BET, Jussie's older brother, philanthropist Jojo Smullett, speaks out in defense of his brother.

"It has not yet been 90 days since my younger brother, Jussie Smollett, was assaulted on a cold winter night in Chicago," Jojo begins.

"Within less than three months," he notes. "His life has been turned upside down."

Jojo has "witnessed him endure unrelenting attacks to his character and reputation."

"Like so many others," he writes. "This entire process quickly devolved from a focus on him as a victim of assault."

He adds that it Jussie has faced "being falsely accused and held responsible for a crime that was perpetrated against him."

"To define this experience as unjust would be an understatement," Jojo notes.

Jussie Smollett in Shades

"After several leaks from 'unnamed' police sources," Jojo recalls of how the media narrative turned against Jussie.

"And," he continues. "Despite a long history of wrongful accusations from the Chicago Police Department."

"Many in the media accepted these unconfirmed reports as fact," Jojo laments.

"The numerous police leaks, which prompted an internal Chicago Police investigation, convicted Jussie in the court of public opinion," he observes.

All of this went down "before he even entered a courtroom."

Jussie Smollett Side Eye

"On February 14, the day that the Osundario brothers were brought in for questioning as suspects," Jojo continues.

He adds: "the Chicago Police Communications Director, in response to leaked sources within the department."

"Had begun spreading the word that Jussie had supposedly staged the attack," Jojo writes.

"The police chief 'has contacted @ABC7Chicago to state on the record that we have no evidence to support their reporting,'" Fox News reported.

"'And heir supposed CPD sources are uninformed and inaccurate,'" the report read.

Smollett

"If the CPD had no evidence to support the idea of a hoax," Jojo posits. "Prior to interviewing the Osundarios."

"Then," he reasons. "They base their whole case against Jussie on that interview."

That doesn't sound like a very solid case at all.

"The police chief later admitted that the men made no mention of a hoax," Jojo points out.

Not "until the final hour that they could legally be held."

That sounds incredibly, wildly shady.

Very Jussie

"By this time," Jojo says. "Jussie had already refused to sign a complaint against the Osundarios,"

He explains that Jussie was "convinced that these men, one who he had considered a friend and the other an acquaintance, could not be his attackers."

"Most importantly," he continus. "Detectives refused to show Jussie video, photos, or any evidence to prove they were the attackers."

"The fact that these two brothers, who in the final hour confessed to attacking my brother yet say it was Jussie who told them to," Jojo notes.

He laments that this "is all the evidence that the police and the general public needed to be convinced, should be frightening to everyone."

Jussie Smollett at Court

Jojo asks readers to consider whether the public should condemn a man over an accusation police received after hours and hours of interrogations.

(Especially if those police are part of a department as dubious as the CPD)

"Is that all it takes to destroy a lifelong dedication to one’s craft and community?" Jojo asks.

He adds: "Is it really that easy to convince the world of a person’s guilt?"

"Is that all it takes to turn someone’s life upside down in America?" Jojo wants to know.

He suggests: "Simply ask yourself this, 'What if Jussie is telling the truth?'"

Jussie Smollett is Arrested

"With not one inkling of solid evidence," Jojo continues. "Many believed the false witness testimony from two suspects who turned into witnesses."

He notes that they do so "even though they lacked standard credibility."

"It was under-reported that one of the 'witnesses' had previously been arrested for attempted murder ending with a plea deal for aggravated battery," he adds.

"Or," Jojo adds. "That the brothers repeatedly expressed homophobia on their social media in the past."

Which could give them one hell of a motive for staging an attack on a man who had once paid them.

"Additionally," Jojo says. "It was never reported that they changed their story while under police interrogation."

Jussie Smollett Mug Shot

In addition to pointing out that many in the public don't have all of the facts, he continues.

"Jussie was booked, arrested, and has maintained his innocence the entire time," Jojo points out.

"Following an evaluation by prosecutors," he ads. "Before any court proceedings or a trial, the case was dismissed – dropped completely."

"I think that they, being legally trained and experienced," Jojo suggests. "Determined that the case against Jussie was weak."

Jussie Smollett Image

"There were lots of things that came out in public to give them concern," Jojo writes.

"After the initial reporting about a 'check' paid to allegedly stage the incident," he cites as an example.

A check "which turned out to have been a check for personal training and nutrition."

Jojo observes that "other inconsistencies came out where the public accusations did not match up against the truth."

Indeed, the Chicago Police Department cited multiple alleged motives for Jussie ... adding a second one after the first one didn't pan out.

We worry when either side of a criminal case is suddenly changing its story.

Jussie Smollett on Instagram

"The Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department announced publicly," Jojo writes.

The CPD sayd that "that Jussie’s motive in staging an attack was so he could make more money from Empire."

"Fox immediately said that wasn’t true," Jojo points out. "But the police chief never withdrew his accusation."

"The chief also stated as fact that Jussie had sent himself the threatening letter ... weeks before the attack," Jojo recalls.

"The FBI then refuted this claim," he observes. "Again, the chief did not correct his accusations."

"Letting it float for the public to either believe or not," he concludes.

This is a complicated case, but Jojo's words are certainly worth considering as he lays it all out.

The Duggars Call Easter a Different Name and Celebrate in Weird Duggar Fashion

On Sunday, millions of Americans gathered with loved ones to celebrate the resurrection of a towering figure who many believe to be the foretold savior of mankind.

We're talking, of course, about Jon Snow.

Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar in Silver Dollar City

But in addition to one of the final Game of Thrones nights, yesterday was also significant because it was Easter ... or as the Duggars call it, Resurrection Day.

Yes, the Duggars like to keep the focus on JC during their holiday festivities (and during everything else they do in life, to be honest).

And so, Easter becomes Resurrection Day and Christmas is Jesus' birthday.

The Duggar Family: A Photo

(We're pretty sure their kids would have gotten the point of the celebration without the name change, but whatever floats your ark.)

Anyway, Michelle spoke about the family's celebration in 2014, just months before the Josh Duggar sex scandals led to the cancelation of her first reality show, 19 Kids and Counting.

“We call it ‘Resurrection Day’ because we really want to make the focus and emphasis on the fact that it’s the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Michelle explained at the time.

Michelle Ruark

It seems that in most ways, the Duggar festivities resemble those you would find in many homes across America.

"We sing songs, we draw pictures of the cross, and we make cookies," the mother of 19 added.

"We will make cookies and decorate them, and then we memorize little verses,” she adds.

Okay, so Easter isn't really a cookie-baking, song-singing occasion for most of us, but the whole thing sounds pretty normal by Duggar standards ... until you get to the pickles.

Duggars in 2014

Apparently, each of the Duggar children gets a jar of pickles in their Easter basket.

“The Duggars love pickles. I think it probably started that when my mom is pregnant she craves pickles, that is the one thing," Jessa Duggar once told In Touch.

"Every time we see her eating pickles we say ‘Are you pregnant?'” 

Duggar Family: Counting On Season 4 Photo

It gets weirder.

Joy-Anna revealed that when a Duggar takes his or her first bite of a pickle, it's considered a monumental event.

“Any time a family member tries a pickle for the first time, we always go around and take videos and pictures and everyone comes around to watch their facial expression,” she said.

Oof. We're sure Freud would have a field day with a family who's so uptight about sex being obsessed with pickles, but we're gonna leave it alone.
