The Famous Octuplets And Septuplets Stories

Living on your own in an apartment in the city is hard enough. Living with another person that has other needs and wants is even harder.

Don’t even get me started on kids, or even twins. That takes first place. But wait… some people on this Earth are surprised by nature. We have the stories of two moms. One mom had eight twin kids (let me say that again – EIGHT kids born at the same time) and another mom had seven twin kids.

When the kids were born they became famous at once. But now, a few years have passed. What’s up with them today?

Nadya Suleman, or better known as The Octomom, shocked the world when she delivered eight children in one pregnancy. Indeed, this was a record-breaking event, in more ways than one. People were also interested in understanding the methods chosen by Nadya and her doctor.

Half admiration, half criticism

Of course, there were some who disapproved Nadya’s choices, whilst others were in awe of her situation. Whether they like it or not, America can’t deny their fascination with this growing family. Indeed, this is definitely a challenging situation, but Nadya persevered. Lets see what this household up to…

Best Dad, Friends and Celebrity Photobombs

Photos catch a moment in time, saving the memory forever just as it was when it occurred. Pulling harmless tricks on our loved ones can be a ton of fun, and what greater harmless trick is there than a photobomb? And what better memory of an event is there than a dad photobomb?! There isn’t!

Photobombing is simply the art of embedding oneself into other individuals’ photos in an unexpected, successfully ruining them – yet making them significantly hilarious. You can either hop before the camera, or you can hang in the background with a funny expression on your face.

Whatever your choice of photobombing tool is, a dad, friend or celebrity has done it before, and you’ll find it all in here.

However, now and again, photographs can catch something embarrassing or unforeseen, and there’s nothing you can do about it…We’re not talking about those funny facial expressions or unflattering poses (despite the fact that those happen as well) – we mean those insane things that you accidentally catch in the background of your selfie or vacation photos.

Photobombs are not quickly noticed, however, once you notice that there’s a funny photobomb or unexpected sight caught in the background of the picture, you no longer see the picture in the same light. :-)

Here are our favorite photos where the background steals the scene:

Legendary Movie Lines That Were Not In The Script

Over the years film dialogue has filtered into our society’s lexicon that at times it seems we can rarely go a week without recognizing a famous line from the silver screen. Going into a business deal we amp ourselves with The Godfather‘s famous “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse” line uttered by Marlon Brando in 1972.

An ex-lover calling to tell you they’re getting married, think Gone With The Wind‘s iconic “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” response by Clark Gable in 1939.

Let’s start!

Clueless

The 1995 romantic coming-of-age comedy Clueless is loosely based on Jane Austen’s 1815 novel Emma, updating the setting to modern-day Beverly Hills. The film was an instant classic upon its release and developed a cult following in the ensuing years, culminating in a spin-off television sitcom.

The Eavesdropping Neighbor

One of the film’s funniest moments happens when Cher Horowitz, played by Alicia Silverstone, goes to a party in Sun Valley. During the party, we see Murray Duvall, played by Donald Faison, inexplicably shave his head. When queried why he’s doing it, he nonchalantly responds, “I’m just keepin’ it real.” The line was improvised by the actor who picked it up from one of his younger neighbors.

Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets

In the second installment of the Harry Potter film series, Chamber of Secrets released in 2002, we see Ron’s parents having a disagreement regarding the best way to discipline Ron and Harry for going on a joy ride in the flying family car. As Molly Weasley (played by Julie Walters) reprimands the boys for their actions, Ron’s father, Arthur (played by Mark Williams) instead appears to be jealous of the fun.

Why Do We Have Rubber Ducks?

Chris Rankin, who plays Percy Weasley, shared that Williams response changed with every additional take estimating there to be between 13 or 14 in total. In the end, the line which was selected for the film was, “What exactly is the function of a rubber duck?”

Some of these lines have become so ingrained in our language that we cannot say the words without remembering the film. Think, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “I’ll be back” catchphrase from 1984’s The Terminator. Some of these famous moments were purely due to a moment of inspiration and made its way to the film’s final cut.

A moment of acting brilliance, an angry response to a director’s unrealistic demands, or a natural shock reaction stemming from an on-set surprise, many of film’s famous moments were never in the original script.

Grab your popcorn and fill up on soda as we journey through the Big Screen’s most famous unscripted moments.

Famous Stars Turning 70 In 2018

It’s hard to believe any of these celebrities are 70 and you will be surprised at the people that have made this list. The years have passed and for many of them, it has been pretty kind.

This list is full of the celebrities that reached the grand age of 70 in 2018. Some of these are much loved Oscar-winning film stars, others are popular on TV and some are even in politics. Some are more famous than others but all reached their seventh decade in 2018.

A Heavy Comic?

Reno played a lot of ‘heavies’ in his early movies, this was essentially because at 6 ft 2 in tall he was physically well suited to these roles.  However, he has also appeared in romantic movies as well as the action roles for which he is well known.

His most famous roles include Godzilla, The Da Vinci Code, Mission: Impossible, Ronin, and Léon: The Professional.

Who else is on the 2018 celebrities-who-turned-70 list?  Well, there is Black Sabbath’s Ozzy Osborne who hit 70 on December 3rd, and there must be something in the rock and roll lifestyle because Ozzy hasn’t changed a bit.  Maybe he really is the “Prince of Darkness”?!  Robert Plant, the legendary Led Zeppelin frontman is also reached 70 years of age.

3 Funny Posts That Say ‘Clueless’ All Over Them

Well, no one ever said that ALL great minds think alike!  Couples are no exception when it comes to being on the same page at the same time. In an age of digital devices and high technology, some people just never really climbed on board.

Even the most successful relationships can have very funny moments that leave for more questions than answers. It’s a fact that all relationships have their ups and downs but if you can laugh it off, you are by far the better person!

The First Cut Is The Deepest

Ok, opening a package should not be a very difficult feat for anyone.  In this case, the most important step is to make sure you don’t cut into the package and slice off the cables!  When her husband brought home new cables for her, she wanted to use them right away and proceeded to cut into the packaging and ruining the cables all together!  I guess it’s back to the store!

Better Pad Up On Ya Knowledge, Pal.

We do believe there are certain items women should purchase on their own. This woman asked her husband to pick up a package of period pads. He came home with bladder leakage pads instead!  On the other hand, if the two have been living together for some time, he should have recognized the brand or at least the product, and just call to ask for the brand. It is 2018, mobile phones are around, you know?

Just One Drink. “Okay.”

Yep, this woman has obviously never poured a beer before and has no concept of foam! Her boyfriend asked her to pour him a cold one and this is what he got. I guess she was too busy to wait any longer because in a few seconds she would have noticed that the foam has disappeared.

Married… With Children Are All Grown Up

Lots of popular guest stars and great talents are packed on the cast of Married… with Children. Somehow, every big name on the set contributed some additional oomph to one of the most beloved and longest-running sitcoms in TV history.

Christina Applegate – Then

The character, Kelly Bundy, was played by Christina Applegate and she was extraordinary. The provocative, and in some cases inappropriate character, was the dream of every teenage boy in the crowd and she wasn’t likely to be a role model that any parent would want for their daughters.

Christina without a doubt pulled off the dim-witted and yet surprisingly smart character without a hitch.

Christina Applegate – Now

Applegate’s professional acting career has taken off since the 80’s and 90’s. She has now won an Emmy award and she has been nominated for a few Golden Globes awards and a Tony award.

Christina has featured in a few noteworthy motion pictures, some of which are; the Sweetest Thing, Don’t tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead, Hall Pass and the Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. She had a double mastectomy after 5 years of intense battle with breast cancer after which she was declared cancer free.

Tia Carrere, Denis Richards, and even Pamela Anderson were on the show as well. Stay tuned

Scandals Of The Discovery Channel Network

When we think of the Discovery Channel, we think of a great resource for learning new things about nature, cultures, and the world in general. However, like many things these days it seems it has become polluted. These days many of the shows are shrouded in scandal. From verging on plain dangerous to reality shows that are riddled with convicted criminals, the channel has taken a dark turn.

The channel is owned by Discover Communications which also owns Animal Planet and TLC, but it seems with Discovery Channel something has gone very wrong. Take a look at this list where we discover some of the worst scandals in of the TV network that will make you disgusted and discover how people have made millions off their disgusting habits.

Why Man vs. Wild’s Bear Grylls Was Fired

Remember Grylls, the guy that would do literally anything including drinking his own pee for survival. He was fired from the channel that made him a household name thanks to not putting in the work required outside Man vs Wild and made it very clear he wouldn’t work with the network for future endeavors.

Discover Communications did not allow him to tick with the show that shot him to fame citing that his conduct was unbecoming. Although Man Vs Wild ran for 6 seasons with high ratings it was canceled due to personal problems and contract issues.

The Alaskan Bush People Aren’t Even Alaskan

When you advertise yourself as a Reality Show there is a general expectation from the viewers that at least most of the content is based on truth, but when it came to The Alaskan Bush People no one could figure out what was real and what based on lies. Down to the very name of the show- turns out the supposed ‘Alaskan Bush’ people aren’t even Alaskan and lives 10 miles outside of the town!

Several cast members claimed they were born and raised in the wild, though it soon came to light that many were living in Texas and Colorado! Furthermore, family members Billy, Bear, Bam, Noah, Matthew, and Gabriel were given citations due to false claims they made on their hunting and fishing licenses regarding their residency.

Alaskan Bush People Pleaded Guilty To Fraud

But as everyone knows, lies eventually come back to haunt you and that is exactly what happened here. After lying about being raised in Alaska they dug themselves into a deep hole which got them in some legal trouble. In 2015, the Brown family finally confessed they did not live in Alaska but only said so to collect government checks.  Billy and Joshua Brown pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree Unsworn Falsification which means they wrote an official statement which they knew was untrue.

And it turns out their lies were for financial gain. The state has an Alaskan Permanent Fund Division that offers full-time residents thousands of dollars to remain in the state.  Billy Brown confessed that he collected $7,956 from the state and Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown said he collected $1,174.  As you can imagine, it didn’t take long for them to be found guilty and each of them was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

No Luck No Glory

Another reality show brought forward by the station only to be proved majority fake is American Pickers. This series s follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz around as they explore the country hoping to find discarded treasures of value. The show focuses on the weird and wonderful ways they come across these treasures. While the items they found are undeniably valuable, they way they come across them is vastly different to how it is presented on screen.

How it actually works was revealed to be a whole lot less interesting. Producers are sent collector items which they access and decide what to send on to the show, only then to Fritz and Wolfe ‘examine’ them for the viewers proving that there is no such thing as a ‘lucky find’ when it comes to this show,

Pre-Selected

It would make sense that since Pawn Stars and American Pickers are on the same network their rules of conduct would be similar. While Rick Harrison seems to have the people and resources to examine everything, it was revealed that here too it is the producers that examine the artifacts!

While viewers are certainly unaware that an expert is brought in ahead of time to examine artifacts, they also have no idea that these ‘experts’ are the producers and by no means Harrison.

Find out how these shows fake what really happens:

Best Construction “Innovations” Ever

Growing up as kids back in the years when nothing had a screen, you probably engaged in improvised crafts or construction where you either made pie from mud or made a solar system from paper Mache, or built a castle with sand or built other things we wanted to. It was all fun and lots of effort was put in to ensure they come out perfect… or at least close to perfect.

You might not have noticed but if you look back at some of the items you built at the time, you might observe that there are some fails they might have had that would make them similar to some of the constructions highlighted in this article. Don’t feel bad, we all did it, and I’m pretty sure we all fell victim to similar construction errors.

Here are some of those construction errors that have found their way into real life scenarios:

Caution: Watch Out For Hazards

Back then; all that mattered was the aesthetics. We wanted to make sure they were as good as can be and if for any reason we felt something was off or something wasn’t right, we would restart the construction (our friends’ crafts must not be finer or better than ours… right?) that passion for construction and eye for little detail started to fade off as we grew older.

Now we just want to get things done and over with so we can move on to other fun things because let’s face it, who really enjoys work, anyway?

“I’ll wait in the ca…”

This woman was sure 100% that she could reach her car using these steps, as she has been doing for the past 5 years. Some construction workers had a different idea. And now seriously (or not) what was there first?

You’ll get tons of these funny moments on the next pages.
