Actor Thomas Gibson Gets Catfished By A “Beautiful Woman”

Stars, they’re just like us! They also get tricked into devious pornographic online relationships with beautiful strangers who are actually, probably, basement-dwelling anti-social weirdos. Case in point: Thomas Gibson, star of “Dharma and Greg” and “Criminal Minds,” who’s allegedly been engaging in an illicit online affair with a woman in North Dakota.

Now Nev Schulman’s Chest Hair Can Be Mine (Sort Of)

I’ve been sweating Nev Schulman since I saw “Catfish” (the movie), and my crush only grew once the TV show inspired by the film debuted on MTV. (A Frisky staffer referred to him as an “emotional vampire,” but I disagree!) In case you live under a rock, “Catfish” (the movie) was a documentary made by…

5 Easy Tips To Avoid Getting “Catfished” Like Manti Te’o

Even if you know nothing about sports (ME!), you are now familiar with the name Manti Te’o, linebacker for Notre Dame. Yesterday, Deadspin published a piece exposing Te’o’s girlfriend’s death as a hoax. Not just her death, but her existence.

Notre Dame Star Manti Te’o’s Uplifting Story Was A Hoax

Sports website Deadspin has uncovered a doozy of a scoop in the world of college football: This year’s inspirational tale of woe about Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o looks to be an elaborate hoax.

A Jury Will Decide If “Catfish” Was A Hoax

Even though the filmmakers and producers claimed that the movie “Catfish” was NOT a hoax, the question still lingered in people’s minds. After seeing the film and having endless discussions with friends—mostly about how hot Nev is—I feel confident that the film was really, really real. But not everyone agrees with me about the film’…

Do We Want To See “Catfish”?

The first time I heard about the movie “Catfish” was catching sight of its red splotch movie poster while waiting to see “Salt.” Outside of the title, the only other text read, “Don’t Let Anyone Tell You What It Is.” Secrecy really does seem to be the name of the game with this film. Now…
