Celebrities Who Hilariously Trolled Their Fans

Trolling truly is an art form. Like any form of performance, a troll must stay in character throughout the charade until they reach their desired reaction from their intended audience. Celebrities who make livings entertaining audiences should theoretically be better at it than the rest of us.

Fortunately, some indeed do deliver on this promise in leaps and bounds as we’ll see. With the constant attention many film and television stars receive from the paparazzi, they have plenty of opportunities to practice their craft on the unsuspecting public.

Danny DeVito

A fan of Danny DeVito decided to take a cardboard cut-out of the veteran actor to her prom. We’re not getting into the details of why she thought this would be a good idea, only that she did it. The flower and the tie really bring it life, huh?

10 strange secrets about The Big Bang Theory

Big Bang Theory (BBT) is one of the most popular shows on CBS. BBT grabbed the attention of many viewers when it aired in 2007. With the exceptional writing of Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, amazing performances by actors Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kelley Cuoco along with perfect comic timing, this show is widely watched and loved all over the world.

Every character in this show has a unique ability and they are appreciated in their own way. This show is not only about science and intelligence but it is all about friendship, relationships and love. Everything about this show is amazing and no matter how many times you watch it, you will love it even more.

However, there are some strange facts about this show that the fans would be fascinated to know. Here are the top 10 strange secrets of The Big Bang Theory:


1. Lenny Penny Kenny.
As we all are aware that the name ‘The Big Bang Theory’ is symbolically given to this show with the purpose of not only science but also the fact of something new is being created. Magical as that sounds, this wasn’t the first name chosen by the writers. At first, the show was to be called ‘Lenny Penny Kenny’, featuring three main characters and so of course, the name’s Sheldon and Lennard would never have been introduced and neither would have all the other characters.

2. Mayim Bialik.
In this exceptional show where the writers and directors have tried to make everything look authentic, there is one authentic detail that most fans don’t know. Actress Mayim Bialik is the only actress in the show who is actually a scientist. She is a neuroscientist and got her doctorate degree in 2008. It is so great to have an actual doctor on set!

3. Hidden Injuries.
Another interesting thing about the show is that many of the actors have had many serious injuries but the directors have very smartly handled them. During season 4, Kelley Cuoco broke her leg while horseback riding so the directors made her do all the scenes behind the counter so that fans wouldn’t be disappointed and the shooting wouldn’t stop. Another actor, Mayim Bialik who plays the role of Amy, broke her arm in a car accident but had to hide it throughout the entire season 6.

4. Sheldon and Star Trek.
Now, as a Big Bang theory fan, we all know how crazy Sheldon is about Star Trek and that he has shared multiple references related to the Brand. However, the actor who plays Sheldon, Jim Parsons, has admitted having never watched Star Trek in his entire life. Also, he has never watched any of the other fictional shows that Sheldon loves including Doctor Who.

5. The Theorists.
We all know how unique The Big Bang Theory is. Who would have thought of a comic show about a group of science nerds and their friendship with a completely opposite girl who has the dream of becoming an actress? Seeing how amazing and different this show was, some people actually did try to copy the idea. In 2010, a show was aired with the name of ‘The Theorists’ in Belarus. When the actors of that show discovered that the producers have stolen the idea, they left.

6. Bazinga.
Sheldon’s all-time favorite phrase ‘Bazinga’ became so popular that some scientists actually used it in one of their discoveries. In 2013, a new species of orchid bee was discovered by Brazilian scientists and they decided to name it Euglossa Bazinga after the catchphrase bazinga. How cool is that? The producers thought that Sheldon would be very thrilled to know that an actual scientific discovery was named after his famous catchphrase.

7. Musical abilities.
Some of the people in the show have a remarkable ability to play musical instruments. In one episode, Sheldon plays the Theremin and the actor, Jim Parsons, played it all by himself regardless of the fact that the Theremin is one of the most difficult instruments to play. Other than that, Mayim Bialik actually learned how to play the harp for one of the episodes where Amy has to play it. Also, Johnny Galecki plays an amazing piano, it is not yet shown on the show but we’re still hoping.

8. Penny’s last name.
Isn’t it interesting that sometimes we skip the slightest details of the show we love? Have you ever noticed that the character of Penny has always been a sort of mystery for the fans? Her last name is literally never mentioned in the show and the producers like to keep it that way. Other than that, Penny’s mother was also never mentioned on the show. Kind of a mystery don’t you think? Despite all that, Penny made a way to everyone’s heart and is one of the most adored characters of the show.

9. Lennard’s glasses.
Lennard’s character has always been wonderful, charming and awkward but what lights up his character is his pair of glasses. It may sound stereotypical for a nerd to wear glasses, but with Lennard, it just fits. However, the actor, Johnny Galecki, doesn’t wear glasses. So throughout the show, he has been wearing glasses without any lens in them and the fans never figured it out and quite honestly, Lennard would have looked a little alternative without the glasses.

10. Blind casting.
We all know and agree with the fact that Jim Parsons is one of finest actors on The Big Bang Theory and he is just the perfect guy to play Sheldon. However, when Jim was called upon to audition, he did not know who Chuck Lorre was, he thought he was auditioning for the game show host Chuck Woolery. Nevertheless, Jim Parsons gave an amazing audition and became the best Sheldon anyone could have ever been.

80’s Teen Idol Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman was the most popular and recognizable teen actor during the 1980’s. He was merely a toddler when he started in show business via a Mcdonald’s commercial. His first TV appearance was in the series “Bad News Bears”. But his role in the movie “The Goonies”, sealed his place in 80’s pop culture. He also starred in the hit movie “Stand By Me” as well as “The Lost Boys”.

He is currently trying his hand in music as a singer and is also attempting to expose Hollywood’s sinister pedophile ring.

The Outrageous Things Celebrities Spend Their Money On

The lifestyles of the rich and famous mean that they can make way more extreme purchases than us normal people. However, sometimes celebrities spend outrageous amounts on all kinds of things. From private islands to costly wine, you won’t believe what celebrities spend their money on!

After you see these purchases, maybe you won’t feel so badly about your own “frivolous spending,” because, after all, you didn’t buy a solid gold bathtub or a pricy humidifier! Read on to find out exactly who bought what and why.

Let’s begin…

Johnny Depp: $30,000 in Wine

When Johnny Depp sued his former business managers for financial mismanagement, they countersued. That’s when the money dirt came out. In the suit, they alleged that Depp’s inability to keep his spending under control caused his money troubles. Details in the lawsuit revealed that Depp spends $2 million a month, including a jaw-dropping amount on wine.

Documents show that the actor spends $30,000 a month on fine wine and that Depp even flies the wine from France to his movie sets! Even more amazing? He spent $3 million to shoot the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson out of a cannon. Why? We have no idea. But it apparently was worth spending millions to do.

DiCaprio’s new fling- The Actors continues his modelizer ways

I am a huge Sex and the City fan. Despite that the show has been over for quite some time, I still find nothing more satisfying than binging on these juicy episodes after a long day. And although the plot is sometimes far-fetched, every now and then something happens in real life which bears a striking similarity to the lives of Carrie and her crew. Today has got me thinking of season one, episode two, ‘models and mortals’. In this episode, the girls lament the crazy trend of guys out there who will ONLY date models, and while that sounds kind of shallow and ridiculous, it seems we have our own modelizer in the flesh: Leonardo DiCaprio.

Only Models

Yup, this ridiculously talented actor is also ridiculously talented at keeping his dating track record ‘model only’ or as close to model as possible. Just last week DiCaprio was seen riding around New York with his most recent speculated fling Lorena Rae, a young German model. They were seen riding peacefully along the New York roads, and while paparazzi and armed security followed ensuite, it does seem as close to a ‘normal date’ as you get when it comes to Leo.

But normal is a hard word to use when describing the actors dating history. DiCaprio is known for his specific dating tastes, being that she must either be, or be fitting to be a Victoria Secret Angel. In fact, he has dated a total of ten Victoria Secret models in his time. DiCaprio, now 41, is also known for dating women far younger than him, usually in their 20’s. While some claim his dating, habits are every man’s dream, others claim it simply points out an extensive list of failed relationships and loneliness.

Chronicles of predetermined failures?

However it could also be that his relationships with his string of beauties is mutually beneficial: they get to be seen with a famous actor, and he gets to be seen with a beautiful woman on his arm. But is there something deeper going on? Amongst those of a sadder opinion is relationship guru Dr. Gilda Crale who coined DiCaprio a “modelizer”, which is someone who pursues fantasy women knowing it will probably not work out.

Some of the women on the list of Leo’s conquests are Victoria Secret models Gisele Bündchen, Israeli beauty Bar Refaeli, American model Kelly Rohrbach and some beautiful actresses like Blake Lively. However, all these women, regardless of the fact that the relationships came to an end had only warm things to say about DiCaprio. Such as Bündchen who claimed, “We were just not meant to be boyfriend and girlfriend, but I respect him enormously and I wish him nothing but the best.”

While Carrie Bradshaw would insist DiCaprio’s ways are the route problem of all the normal looking girls in the world, you’ve got to admit that The actor, with millions and millions in his bank account, and movies like Titanic, The Aviator and The Great Gatsby in his pocket, certainly does make a great catch. That is assuming he ever decides on being caught for good.

I am a huge Sex and the City fan. Despite that the show has been over for quite some time, I still find nothing more satisfying than binging on these juicy episodes after a long day. And although the plot is sometimes far-fetched, every now and then something...

If She Were Alive Today. England Celebrates Lady D’s Birthday With Commemoration and Re-Dedication

Had it not been for that fatal night on the 31st of August 1997, Princess Diana may very have been with us today. The princess of the people, whom many people around the world, even today, 20 years after her death, remember more as a saint than a person. Her tragic death cut her life short at the age of 36.

A Day of Mourning

Today, people from all over England paid tribute to the late princess by covering Kensington Palace’s gates with flags, pictures of her life and memory cards. The princess’s sons, Prince William and Prince Harry and the Spencer family didn’t forget her either. The two, accompanied by Kate Middleton, Prince George and Princess Charlotte and Lady Diana’s brother, the Earl Spencer gathered in a private ceremony Althorp House, where Diana is buried to rededicate her grave. The Oval Lake at the estate was recently redesigned – the first redesign in the estate in over 350 years.

Prince Harry, now aged 32 was 12 when his mother passed. As he matured, his later teens and early twenties were riddled with scandals, whom many have blamed on his mother’s death. In an interview that he gave to Newsweek the prince stated that walking behind his mother’s coffin on live-TV, was an ordeal left a negative imprint on his personality and behavior for almost 2 decades. His brother Prince William said in a different interview that the funeral was the hardest things he had ever endured. Both princes agree that today children would not have been subjected to such an ordeal.

No More!

The two princes and the British royal family (together with the English public and media outlets) have shown their disgust to paparazzi practices that they feel brought about the death of the princess. Witnessing firsthand the toll these practices had on their mother and subsequently on them, Prince William has been very protective of Kate, and the media has respected his requests.

In 2012 a French paparazzi photographer caught a frame of Kate topless and the English public were outraged and demanded the photographer be extradited to the UK and stand trial. None of the English tabloids would publish them and photographers Cyril Moreau and Dominique Jacovides couldn’t sell them. Eventually Closer magazine and a small regional paper did publish them. The owner and executive editor of Closer were tried in France, along with the former publisher of the French regional newspaper that also ran the photos and the photographers who took them. The verdict is scheduled to be given on 04 July 2017.

Still Loved

Lady D’s presence in her son’s life and the English public hasn’t ended there. Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his mother’s engagement ring, and the radiant Duchess of Cambridge has been compared in fashion style, public appearance an charity work to the Late Princes. Additionally, William and Harry are much more popular than their father, Prince Charles, the first heir to the English Throne, and have taken much of their mother’s character and avid charity work. Persistent rumors continuously circle the queen that she plans on handing the throne over to Prince William rather than her son due to his conduct with Lady Diana those these have never been verified.

If the American public can still pinpoint where they were when JFK was murdered, the English public bear the death of Princes Diana as a national trauma.

Had it not been for that fatal night on the 31st of August 1997, Princess Diana may very have been with us today. The princess of the people, whom many people around the world, even today, 20 years after her death, remember more as a saint than a person. Her...
