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?" After the very first episode aired, it came out that most participants had already left their Amish family for the bright lights of the big city.

4. Storage Wars

Storage wars
Dave Hester, a prominent presence on A&E’s Storage Wars, left production and sued the network over the phony aspects of the show. He said producers loaded units up with items to give each episode an artificial angle and that they even funneled money to teams to keep each episode's bidding competitive.

5. 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. He said it was "sickening" that he was part of such a "fraud."

6. The Hills

Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner and other cast members have come out and said pretty much everything you saw on this MTV reality show as scripted. Shocking, we know!

Catelynn Lowell: Filming Rehab Stay for Teen Mom OG?!

It's been a rough few months for Catelynn Lowell.

And that's putting it lightly.

Catelynn Lowell at MTV VMAs

Back in November, she revealed that she'd been suffering from suicidal thoughts -- she said that things were so bad that she'd been thinking of specific ways to kill herself.

With the support of her husband, Tyler Baltierra, she checked into a rehab center in Arizona, the same one she visited in March of 2016 to get help with her postpartum depression.

At one point, she decided to check out early so that she wouldn't miss Christmas with her daughter, but she quickly realized that that wasn't the best idea.

She returned and completed her treatment, then came home just after the holidays.

We heard a lot of nice things from Cate, about how she was happy and thankful for her family, sweet things like that.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Snuggles

But earlier this week, she shocked us once again when she tweeted that she'd be heading back to rehab for the third time.

"Well they say third times a charm..." she wrote. "I'm going back to treatment people for 6 weeks to work on my trauma and getting on different meds."

She thanked Tyler for his support and told him that she loved him, and that was that.

Well, almost -- she also composed a tweet to her "haters."

"YOU DONT KNOW EVERYTHING IVE BEEN THROUGH!" she wrote. "Quit acting like you know what I should be doing or shouldnt!!"

Cate Lowell Picture

"I'm NOT running away from my family! Those are the poeple I love the most!! You ppl are ignorant."

She's referring to the reaction she got after announcing her latest trip to rehab -- it wasn't as positive as it was the last time around.

Many people couldn't understand why she'd need to go back just a couple of weeks after leaving, why she wouldn't just focus on the aftercare she'd talked about before.

People also didn't understand why she felt the need to go all the way to Arizona instead of finding a treatment center closer to home.

Additionally, why would she go back to a place that obviously hasn't been helping her in the way she needs?

Catelynn Lowell on the Reunion

It's all very complicated, that's for sure, but it looks like we're getting answers to at least some of those questions.

According to an insider who spoke with The Ashley's Reality Roundup, "MTV pays for her to go to the treatment facility every single time under the agreement that we are allowed to film her while she's there as much as we want."

And there it is.

The crew was reportedly there for her last stay in rehab, and they're there this time, too -- we know that much, because one of her producers tweeted about traveling to Arizona with her.

The Ashley's source, who seems to be a crew member himself, added that the treatment center costs $50,000 for each stay, "so yeah, they're gonna get their footage."

Catelynn Lowell Purple Hair

So in the past three months, they've paid $100,000 for her treatment?!

It's no wonder why this source claimed that we're going to see plenty of footage of Catelynn at rehab later this season.

The source also said "From what we're heard, and I can't be 100 percent sure, they keep going back because the treatment center works with MTV, and will let them film there."

"That's why Leah Messer went there too to treat her anxiety issues. It's no coincidence. But MTV still has to pay."

Honestly, this is pretty upsetting news.

Catelynn Lowell in new house

If you look back at all the instances of televised therapy on reality shows, you'll see that it never really works.

How is Catelynn going to open up about her childhood trauma with cameras in her face? How could she possibly get the kind of help she needs like that?

It sounds like some of the crew members have their reservations about the whole thing too -- the MTV insider said that "not everyone is happy about it."

"Some of us feel Catelynn needs to be there long-term, without anyone from the show filming or interacting with her. Not everyone felt it was right, but it is what it is."

Sadly, that's true. If Cate still feels like she needs help, why wouldn't she let MTV foot that massive bill for it?

Still, it really just does not sound like a great sign ...

Kylie Jenner: Talking to Tyga Behind Travis Scott's Back?!

When you first heard the news of Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, did you think that it would be a nice, happy, peaceful time in her life?

If you did ... well, bless your heart.

Kylie Jenner and a Watch

Bless Kylie's heart, too, because the poor girl must just be having a heck of a time with all of these huge life changes.

She's 20 years old, she's famous for being on a super dramatic reality show, and she's expecting a child with a guy she hasn't been dating all that long.

To be clear, the baby will be born well before Kylie and Travis Scott celebrate their first anniversary.

On top of all that, there's also the matter of Tyga.

Kylie was with Tyga for at least a couple of years -- we're not sure exactly when they began dating since they kept things quiet for a while because of their age difference.

Kylie and Tyga Look Weird

They would break up, then get back together, then break up again. Last spring, they broke up, and she began dating Travis pretty much immediately afterwards.

And you know what happened from there.

It would make sense if Kylie has some leftover feelings for Tyga, or if she feels a little confused because they really didn't seem to get any closure in their relationship.

According to a source who spoke with Hollywood Life, that's exactly what's going on now.

"They occasionally still text and remain in contact," the source revealed. "Bad timing was the reason they ended things -- Kylie knew she was too young to settle down."

Kyga on Vacation

Right, so it makes perfect sense then that she got pregnant right after dumping him.

"She really misses having him around daily," the source continued.

Another issue is that "Kylie is excited about being a mother, but the pregnancy, with her hormones running wild, is also making her miss Tyga's son, King Cairo."

"She knows that having Travis' baby makes reconciling with Tyga difficult right now, but she's still open to rekindling things in the future."

"She misses Tyga and is keeping the door open for a possible happy ending with her first true love," the source added.

A Kiss for Tyga

All of that definitely makes sense, especially since Travis hasn't been around all that much lately.

And that's where another report from another Kylie insider comes in!

"Travis has been spending more time with Kylie the past few weeks," the source explained. "He's got some downtime and he's finally making her a priority."

"But he's still not as present as Kylie would like. When he's at her place he's always on his phone, he's very distracted and that gets Kylie upset."

When that happens, when Travis ignores her, "that's when she starts texting with Tyga."

Kylie Jenner While Pregnant

The source even claimed that "Travis would be shocked if he knew how much she's in contact with Tyga lately."

"Anytime she's mad at Travis she texts Tyga. There have been times she's been messaging back and forth with Tyga while Travis is in the other room."

Does this surprise anyone? Even a little?

... Yeah, we didn't think so.

Kylie is probably still a little immature, which is pretty normal for a 20-year-old.

Hopefully she's able to pull things together in the coming months and figure out what it is she really wants -- even if, for some bizarre, inexplicable reason, that turns out to be Tyga.

Jill Duggar Shares Heartbreaking Story About Derick Dillard

For a long, long time now, Derick Dillard has been pretty darn unlikable, right?

Really, just so extremely awful.

Derick Dillard and Jill Dillard

He keeps insisting on asking Duggar fans for money, despite the extremely negative reaction he gets every single time he does it.

Several people are convinced that he's been cheating on Jill, and that things are so bad that they're even headed for divorce.

And let's not even get started on all the horrific comments he's made about Jazz Jennings, a transgender girl who also has a show on the TLC network.

Well, we say "also," but we can't forget that Derick's antics got him fired from Counting On, so it looks like Jazz is the only one of the two with a show these days.

There's just been so many bad stories about Derick lately, you know?

Derick Dillard and his boys on Christmas

But now it's time for a genuinely upsetting one.

If you've kept up with this family over the years, then there's a chance you already know that Derick's father passed away several years ago.

He doesn't talk about it all that often, but of course the subject does come up from time to time.

Wednesday was the tenth anniversary of his father's death, so it seemed like a pretty appropriate time to pay tribute to him.

Over on Instagram, Jill shared several old pictures of Derick's father, and for the caption, she wrote "10 years ago tonight, my hubby lost his amazing dad."

Derick Dillard with Dad

"Derick had just started his second semester at Oklahoma State University when his mom and brother showed up at his dorm room the morning of the 18th to tell him his dad had passed away suddenly during the night."

"We miss you terribly 'dad' and look forward to seeing you one day in heaven!" she continued.

"You never know when a day may be your last or someone else's last day on earth. Don't wait to give your heart and life to Jesus & make sure to share his hope with others!"

Most of Jill's followers left kind comments, and many pointed out the strong resemblance between Derick as a child and adorable little Israel.

But, as always, some people took issue with her post.

Jill Dillard and Derick

"So you can't even do a memorial for your father in law without shoving religion down everyone's throat!" one person wrote.

"Your parents sure brainwashed you well. Are you doing the same to your kids? Or letting them decide on faith/believing for themselves?"

Another of Jill's followers commented with "Too bad Derick has been a sh-tty person these last cpl months maken headlines about jazz. maybe he should keep his mouth shut about others. doesnt the bible say something about not judgeing others?"

Which is a good, though poorly worded, point ... but, you know, not the time.

When Derick himself shared Jill's touching tribute, someone actually responded with "Wonder what his dad would think about his grandchildren...knowingly...being exposed to the possibility of being sexually abused...or that his own son prefers to prey upon the gullible rather than make an honest living."

Again, solid question, but come on, people.

Derick is pretty much the worst, but this still must have been a heartbreaking loss for him.

He has our condolences during what must be a rough time of year for him.

Jinger Duggar Due Date: REVEALED!

Jeremy Vuolo has gone ahead and spilled the baby beans.

In updating the biography on his church's website, the pastor and reality star summarized his journey of faith and family, adding a new paragraph at the bottom about his relationship with Jinger Duggar.

And it's a rather revealing paragraph, for one reason in particular.

Jinger and Jeremy Image

The unexpected addition reads as follows:

Jeremy and his wife Jinger were married in November 2016 and now reside together in Laredo, Texas, on the border of the United States and Mexico, as Jeremy continues to serve as the pastor of Grace Community Church.

They are expecting their first child in July of 2018.

We added the italics and the bold for emphasis because this is the first we've heard of just when Jinger is expected to give birth.

pastor bio

We first heard about the child itself back on January 3 when Jinger and Jeremy shared the very simple, very informative and very sweet photo below.

It gets right to the point, doesn't it?

Jinger Duggar Is Pregnant!

The couple has only been married for about 18 months, but it only takes one instance of unprotected sex to create a baby.

(Keep that mind, all you kids out there.)

And, as we all know of course, members of the Duggar family waste no time at all when it comes to procreating.

Once that ring is on the woman's finger, a certain body part (the penis) gets inserted into another certain body part (the vagina) as often as it takes to create life.

In response to their big news, famous loved ones sent their best wishes to Jinger and Jeremy, starting with Derick Dillard.

"Congratulations Jinger and Jeremy on expecting your first child!" wrote the controversial star two weeks ago, adding:

"We are so excited for y’all and know you’ll make excellent parents! Israel and Sam are getting at least 43% more cousins in 2018 and they be excited like WOOO!!!"

Jinger Duggar Pregnancy Announcement

Ben Seewald later chimed in as follows:

"3 weddings in less than a year's time, with @jeremy_vuolo & @jingervuolo, @austinandjoyforsyth, Joe & Kendra! 3 new babies (all boys) born in 2017, Henry, Samuel & Mason! And now...

"3 new babies due in 2018! Boys or girls, what are your guesses?"

Indeed, Joy-Anna is also pregnant, with fans wondering whether she will give birth birth or whether Jinger will become a mother first.

We have no way of knowing, of course.

Joy-Anna has not yet come out with her due date.

The 34 Most Ridiculous Baby Names of All-Time

From Apple to North to Spurgeon and many, many others compiled here, celebrities sure pick out some hilarious names for their kids.

Not all of them, obvi. Some go the conventional route.

But this is Hollywood, and well, we have no shortage of options while putting together a gallery of unintentional hilariousness like this.

Let's just say that.

There sure as heck are a disproportionate percentage of little kid names that are straight up ridic, head-scratching, LOL-worthy selections.

Check out the 33 most absurd ones given by the most absurd people now and be glad they make enough money to afford good therapists:

1. North West

Kimye and daughter
North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.

2. Kyd

David duchovny and tea leoni
Yes, Kyd. David Duchovny mailed that one in worse than his alleged acting on Californication.

3. Kal-El Cage

Nicolas cage mug shot
Nicolas Cage named one of his kids Kal-El, a fact not related to him being wasted out of his mind in this mug shot ... although that could explain a lot of things.

4. Spurgeon

Spurgeon seewald photo
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald's baby son Spurgeon is named after Charles Spurgeon, an influential Baptist preacher from the 19th Century. It also is the subject of an awesome page on Urban Dictionary, and will probably make lil' Spurge glad he's home schooled later in life.

5. Rocket Zot (or Ayer)

Sam worthington photo
Avatar star Sam Worthington's baby name choice for his first child with wife Lara Bingle Worthington - Rocket Zot - was chosen because they liked the way it sounded. That makes two of them ... and probably not a whole lot more. Honorable mention to Pharrell Williams' son Rocket Ayer.

6. Reign Aston Disick

Kourtney kardashian and scott disick instagram
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick went relatively conventional with their first two children Mason and Penelope. For the third, however, they opted for a name fit for a Lord: REIGN Aston Disick. If only his dad weren't the deadbeat Lord of six different rehab centers.

Audrey Roloff: My Daughter Just Achieved THIS Milestone!

You'll forgive Audrey Roloff if she is over the moon right about now.

You'll forgive the Little People, Big World star, in fact, if she is over the moon, Mars, Uranus and every other planet in the solar system...

... because her daughter is just so gosh darn cute, precious and getting older by the second.

Such a Strawberry

Roloff has provided fans with another exciting update about Ember Jean, who came into the world this past September after forcing her mother to go way past her due date.

But Ember has clearly been worth the wait.

Audrey and Jeremy Roloff admittedly struggled at first to adjust to first-time parenthood, but they've since found a steady groove and have been sharing adorable snapshots of Ember ever since.

The latest is above... and is positively delightful.

Thanks to the caption, it was also educational.

"We worked hard for those chunky arms so we had to put on our strawberry outfit and show em off," wrote Audrey at the outset of her message, prior to adding:

"I mean... can you even handle the sweetness?! Does this make her edible?!"

Audrey Roloff, Ember Jean, Jeremy Roloff

Audrey then said how she feels "so blessed to have such a smiley, squishy, talkative, and healthy baby girl," passed along her love for Ember and concluded with the aforementioned update:

"P.S. she slept her first night in the crib last night - bittersweet mama moment."

AWWWW!

All parents can likely relate to that feeling.

On one hand, it's nice to have the child a bit farther away at night in order to help you sleep.

On the other hand, this is the first of what will be many, many signs that Ember is growing up. And quickly!

Some Ember Snuggles

Just over a week ago, Roloff posted a picture of Ember in celebration of the young girl's four-month birthday.

She wrote at the time that Ember was "laughing and giggling," that she was "sitting up in a high chair" and sleeping about "seven hours a night."

That impressive last benchmark explains why it was time for Ember to go sleep in her own crib, away from Mom and Dad.

(Of course, she'll always be close to Mom and Dad, in terms of where she stands in relation to their heart.)

"I’m in love I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!" concluded Roloff at the time.

Aud, Jer and Ember

Earlier in her motherhood, Audrey explained that she was having some difficulty, mostly with breastfeeding, but also with the adjustment in general.

Can anyone blame her?

In the blink of an eye, you are responsible for an entire human being, from dressing her to feeding her to changing her to making sure she feels safe and loved at all times.

It's really amazing any parent can maintain his or her sanity, when you stop to think about it.

Thankfully, Audrey has a supportive husband and a loving family, even more so now that she and Jacob have ended their alleged feud.

At some point this spring, TLC will air new episodes of Little People, Big World and we can't wait to tune and watch Audrey and Jeremy and Ember in loving action.

Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn: Engaged!

Great news for Ed Sheeran!

And also for everyone who loves to listen to a good Ed Sheeran love song, too ...

Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn

He's getting married!!!

Yep, just earlier this morning, Ed hopped on his Instagram to announce the big news: he'd proposed to his girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn!

He shared that sweet photo of the two of them together, and for the caption, he wrote "Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx."

Adorable, right?!

And it only gets better ...

Ed Sheeran at Grammy Awards

We don't know any additional details about their engagement or their upcoming wedding at this point, but over the course of their relationship, Ed has shared some stories about Cherry.

In an interview last year, he revealed how they began dating back in the summer of 2015.

"I've known Cherry since I was 11," he explained then.

At the time, she worked on Wall Street, and he had a series of shows in New York, so they got together then and "reconnected."

After that, he said that he went back on tour, but they stayed in touch through text messages.

Ed Sheeran at Billboard Music Awards

A couple of months later, in July, he was at Taylor Swift's annual Independence Day bash at her home in Rhode Island, and amazingly enough, Cherry was at a different party in Rhode Island at the very same time.

"I kinda said to Taylor, 'Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?' The rest is history," he recounted.

If you've got a good memory for gossip, there's a good chance you remember this.

Shortly after Taylor's party, Ed was seen with Cherry, and it was pretty obvious even then that he'd already fallen for her.

Like, their relationship has been so adorable that last year, many people were convinced that they'd secretly gotten married at some point.

Ed Sheeran Snapshot

Another note of loveliness in their relationship?

A few months ago when Ed discussed his battle with substance abuse, he credited Cherry for helping him get healthier again.

About the substance abuse, he said "I didn't really notice it was happening. It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, 'Calm yourself down.'"

One of those people, it seems safe to say, was likely Cherry.

In that same interview, he said that moving in with her "was a real help grounding me."

"I was a 25-year-old in the music industry on tour so I just needed someone to balance me out."

To her credit, it looks like they've balanced each other beautifully.

Congrats, you two!

Fredo Santana Dies; Popular Rapper Was 27

Fredo Santana, a popular rapper who originally made a name for himself as part of the Chicago music scene, was found dead on Friday night.

He was 27 years old.

Fredo Santana

According to TMZ, per close family members of the late musician, Santana was discovered by his girlfriend around 11:30 p.m. in Los Angeles.

He has recently been hospitalized for kidney and liver problems, allegedly due to an addiction to the substance known as "lean."

(Lean is a mixture of prescription-strength cough syrup and codeine. It is typically mixed with other ingredients, such as lemon-lime soda and/or pieces of hard candy, like Jolly Ranchers.)

Santana had talked openly about this addiction.

Lean is also believed to cause seizures, which is likely what led to the rapper's death.

In response to this sad piece of news, a number of artists have taken to social media in tribute of Fredo Santana.

"Rest In Peace Santana," wrote Drake as a caption to the following image, for example.

Fredo Santana and Drake

“RIP Fredo Santana f--kkkk man, @ChiefKeef is going to need a lot of love and support, Fredo was his number 1," Milonakis added.

After going to the hospital in October for his lean problem, Santana posted the following message on Instagram:

"Been in here since Friday doctor say a nigga had kidney failure an liver failure. Thanks for everyone who prayed for a nigga I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy."

He later admitted that he was thinking of checking into rehab.

"Hopefully I can be the face to sho niggas to slow down an we got our whole life ahead of us fuck being rock stars gettin high I got ptsd," he Tweeted, adding:

"I was running from my old life tryna get high didn't want to face them demons...I'm getting help I might just go to rehab."

Alas, Santana never followed through on this consideration.

with baby mama

Fredo Santana announced the birth of his son via this cute Instagram photo in 2017.

Fredo Santana was the cousin of Chief Keef.

He burst on to the scene via collaborations with his famous relative, but eventually carved his own niche via such mixtapes as "Fredo Kruger," "It's a Scary Site and his "Trappin Ain't Dead" album. 

Santana was working on the second installment in his Walking Legend mixtape series before he passed.

The rapper also became a father for the first time eight months ago.

He is survived by his young son, Legend.

Strangely enough, Santana is the latest big name to pass away at the age of 27, as noted below:

May Fredo Santana rest in peace.

UPDATE: Lil The Based God has also weighed in on the tragedy as follows:

“Let one off in the air for fredo santana !!

"For life they cudnt stop that man SSR for life CHICAGO for life Chief Keef chop durk Reese Gino sd the whole Chicago what it do joe we living it up joe Chicago joe for life too fredo.”
