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?

‘Boys will always be boys’ so they say.

Have you heard about your friend or neighbor who’s already married, complaining about their husband like they can’t figure out if they should get angry or just laugh because of their husband’s child-like behavior? Have you heard of them saying that having a husband is like having another child in the family?

Guess that’s absolutely true!

Just like this video where a husband is seriously playing with a cooking spoon but turned out that his wife is actually looking for it.

In the video, it seems like while in the kitchen, the husband had discovered what he can actually do with a cooking spoon!

It can be seen that the husband is seriously making a somewhat round silver thing float in the air, enjoying his time while his pregnant wife is busy looking for something in the background.

However, the magical moment of the husband did not last long for his wife had revealed his magic trick and ruin his momentum.

The wife can’t believe when she found out that the thing she’s looking for, which is the cooking spoon, was actually on his husband. She then hit his husband with a pot but not too hard though, just enough to reveal his magic trick.

It turned out that the silvery round thing that looks like floating in the air was actually the head of the cooking spoon!

The Trick

The trick? The man hid the cooking spoon’s handle on his armpit to create a magical vision where the head of the cooking spoon is floating in the air. What a cool and a smart man right? I’m pretty sure he managed to trick you. If not for his wife, no one would know what’s behind his magic trick.

Now, don’t you want to have a husband or a partner like this guy? Much as you want to hit him because of his immature behavior, admit it you find it cute and irresistible!

Angel Locsin Pushes ‘Golden Buzzer’ on Emotional Performance of Disabled Dancer

Published

A disabled dancer and his partner received the second ‘golden buzzer’ for the new season of Pilipinas Got Talent.

Julius Obrero and Rhea Marquez performed a rather emotional dance on stage that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. While we’ve seen a lot of dance performances not just on the show but on other contests as well, this was among the most touching of all because Julius was wheelchair-bound.

But being on the wheelchair and only able to use his upper body to move around did not prevent Julius from making the best performance that wowed the audience, most especially the judges.

Even ‘Bad Boy’ Robin Padilla could not help but be teary-eyed as he watched the two twirl around the stage. He’s got a tough guy image to maintain but even the toughest guys can feel emotional while watching this performance.

There was no question that the two dancers had rehearsed their performance well and everything was well thought of, including the ‘pirouettes’ that Julius did on his wheelchair. But while Rhea can move around on all her limbs, her performance merely complemented Julius perfectly, earning them plus points from judge Angel Locsin.

As usual, judge Vice Ganda made jokes but was all praises for the performance, saying that he found ‘unconditional talent’ in Julius even if he was not able to find unconditional love in his life.

FMG was also impressed by the performance but as the four judges got ready to take a vote, Angel quickly pushed the golden buzzer! While many expected that the performance would get a golden buzzer, the audience still felt emotional seeing that the buzzer was actually pressed and gold confetti poured on the two dancers.

Robin gave Angel a hug before she ran to the stage to congratulate the two graceful dancers who will now go straight to the semi-finals. Congratulations!

All PEDs are equipped with two headphone jacks so if you decide to watch a movie with your seatmate in one device, it will still be possible. Just bring your own headphones because they don’t provide it.
