Did Rebel Wilson Really Lie about Her Age, Name, and Childhood?

rebel wilson real name

Rebel Wilson is one of today’s popular young stars and is idolized even by famous faces such as Channing Tatum and Jennifer Lawrence yet she’s now involved in controversy over reports that she’s a liar.

Rebel is 29 years old – or so she says and her bio on Wikipedia shows – yet Australian tabloid Woman’s Day claims that she is actually 36 years old! Other “facts” about Rebel are also being refuted by the tabloid’s “reliable source” they are not naming, for obvious reasons.

According to Rebel Wilson, she’s 29, was raised by dog-training “bogan” parents in the “ghetto” of Sydney, spent a year in Zimbabwe, climbed into a cage with a leopard, got caught in a shoot-out and then struck down by a severe strain of Malaria from a mozzie in Mozambique where, from her ICU bed, she envisioned herself winning an Oscar and rapping her acceptance speech.

But far from the outlandish Hollywood movie-like life she’s portrayed to the public, an old classmate says Rebel had a “very normal, upper-middle-class upbringing” and has added a touch of “fantasy” to the life she lead before becoming a household name.

Her name is not even Rebel, to begin with. She was born as Melanie Elizabeth Bownds sometime in 1979, making her 36 this year.

Other things about her fictional past actually match with the “real” past, including her explanation for having such a weird name: because her parents named all their kids with unique names. She has siblings named Annachi (or Anna), Liberty (or Libby), and Ryot. It appears that hers was the only name that wasn’t eccentric; so, she decided to change it to Rebel.

Her mom is also a professional dog breeder as she claimed, with Sue Bownds actually breeding as many as 75 Best in Show winners in over 30 years. Sue runs a kennel with Libby, called Nangunyah.

Now, Rebel claimed she was raised like a gypsy yet her former schoolmate refuted this, saying she grew up in an upper middle class family in “comfortable” Castle Hill area and had gone to upper-crust Tara Anglican School.

Records confirm that Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, indeed, lived this life but there is no record of a Rebel Wilson living in the area.

After the exposé went viral, Rebel posted several tweets “answering” the tabloid’s accusations with funny quips.

Still, we don’t think it matters whether she’s 29, 36, or even 40! The woman is funny and talented. Plus, how many celebrities willingly tell their real age, anyway?

Ina Raymundo’s Son Dazzles Netizens with His Good Looks

Published

Pinay actress and commercial model Ina Raymundo is long known for her beauty, even now that she’s already 42 years old and a mother to 5 kids.

Of course, everyone expects that her kids are going to be as gorgeous as she is – and they are right!

Ina is married to Canadian-Ukranian businessman Brian Poturnak. Since he’s also quite handsome, it is easy to see where their kids really inherited their gorgeous looks. The two have five kids: Erika, Jakob, Mikaela, Annika, and Minka.

At 14, Ina’s only son Jakob is quickly growing up to be a heartthrob. We would not be surprised at all if he’s the ‘crush ng bayan’ in school! The girls are also beautiful, of course, but Jakob stands out from the lot because he’s the only boy.

The young lad has just finished middle school, with the proud mom posting photos taken from his Moving On Ceremony. A lot of netizens could not help but comment on Jakob’s looks as well as the fact that Ina seems to have kept her youthful looks. Who would have thought she’s already 42 years old, eh?

Just like many celebrities, Ina enjoys posting photos of herself and her family. Even when Jakob was much younger, many netizens had already noticed that he’s quite a looker. Thus, even as a kid, many already predicted that he is sure to grow up as a heartthrob and would surely break many hearts.

Judging by his most recent photos, those predictions appear to be true! Although we hope he wouldn’t really leave a long trail of broken hearts…

But if you are one of those who are hoping he would become an actor and, thus, be more ‘accessible’ to the public, Jakob’s got some bad news for you. The young lad has no plans of joining the showbiz industry, at least for now anyway. Let’s hope he changes his mind in the future!

Prankster Met “Karma” As He Was Fined £52,500 Because Of A Woman He Kicked While Doing A Prank

Published

Prank Image

Pranksters are everywhere. The boom of taking videos in doing pranks developed when social media boomed. People think it is fun to scare, trick or even hurt individuals and catch all those awkward moments on video. They share them online and take pride in their sick tricks just to become overnight internet famous.

We have seen people scaring the hell out of innocent strangers by using fake bombs, guns, and events. Others could have a heart attack because of all these crazy pranks they think make them cool.

Hurting others is no different. Pranksters should be fined, don’t you think so?

Crossing the line

That is exactly what this woman did when a proud prankster joyfully video recorded her standing in the middle of the street, waiting to cross. This guy, Mario Montealegre, thought it was funny to kick someone’s calf in public and see a lady, who did not do anything wrong to him, fall to the ground.

He was even caught on record counting before he attacked the poor victim!

The woman, who was wearing heeled boots at that time, fell pretty bad. She hit her lower back straight to the ground after her ankle got twisted. Everything happened so fast that the woman beside her was just as shocked as her.

Mario and his friend, who was holding the camera, was giggling and the video caught it.

And sad to say, many people think it is funny because the video went viral on the internet. While others laughed at her awkward fall, she did not think it was funny at all.

Minor injuries

She suffered minor injuries including sprain in the ankle, back pain and injuries in the wrist and knee. She took a 75-day leave from work due to the prank. Because of this, the men became instafamous themselves as the police took it to the public to look for the pranksters.

They were fined £52,500 as compensation plus custodial sentence. Thankfully, the police did not have to force them to show up in court because they voluntarily presented themselves to the office.

May this be a lesson to all to think before doing anything crazy for internet’s sake. Hoping for justice to be served to those prank victims who do not have the guts to report.

Legendary Slackliner and Daredevil Faith Dickey Crosses a Canyon Wearing Three-Inch Heels

It is no secret: wearing a pair of heels is really difficult, especially if you are going to attend a special function where walking is needed. If you’re not used to wearing heels, you might just stare at your feet the whole time because you are terrified you are going to hit a bump in the road and find yourself face plant into the concrete. Wearing heels in the morning until the night may want you to feel that you just want to go home and throw your shoes in the garbage.

However, some women still choose to wear heels. Not only does it make you more made up but it also makes you feel more authorized and formal. It also makes any woman stand up taller, look slimmer, and feel more confident.

Heels can be a pain at times, but you will be surprised to see a woman who has taken them to new heights – literally!

The Ultimate Daredevil

Professional Slackliner and daredevil Faith Dickey from Austin, Texas, fearlessly walked across a wire hundreds of feet in the air while wearing three-inch heels. She inched her way above a canyon wearing a pair of black pumps.

Faith only had a slim cord attaching her to the line, just in case she tripped.

Not the First Time

You will be surprised to know that this is not Faith’s first time to walk across a wire wearing heels. In January 2015, she also participated in the Women’s Highline Meeting in Ostrov, Czech Republic where she broke all previous female high lining records, including the highest free solo walk for a woman which measures 820 feet above the ground.

She again tested her skills by crossing the Pera da Gávea in Rio de Janeiro, one of Brazil’s most famous highlines wearing a pair of bright pink kitten heels.

People who saw Faith crossing the thin cords with her choice of shoes have nothing to say but admiration and surprise.

I have never seen anything like it before – I’ve taken photos of highliners, but one wearing a pair of heels is completely different. Faith is very experienced at highlining, but even so, she had to be extremely careful in her heels.

The daredevil is the first woman to pass the 100-meter mark in highlining. She also holds several world records in the sports of slackening.

People were amazed upon seeing her tricks. [Image Credit: EpicTV / Youtube]

Do you think you can do whatever Faith is doing? Are you brave enough to dare yourself to cross a thin wire up in the air? Because for us, we surely can’t! We’ll leave it to the professionals.
