A pageant mom reportedly fed her daughter tapeworms prior to a competition to make the child lose weight. Appearing on Untold Stories of the E.R. on Discovery Fit & Health, pediatric E.R. nurse Maricar Cabral-Osorio recalled the terrible discovery of her teen patient and it’s not for the squeamish.
Cabral-Osorio first thought the teen was pregnant. When she arrived at the hospital with a bulging stomach, the nurse thought the most obvious explanation was that the girl was pregnant, but after she did an ultrasound, there was definitely no baby there. However, “Something was in her intestines,” Cabral-Osorio said.
When the patient went to the bathroom, she started screaming. That’s when Cabral-Osorio went in and saw the cause of the commotion. “It was a toilet bowl full of tapeworms. Blegh!” she said. “It was so gross and she had pooped all tehse tapeworms. There were a couple that were very long and wiggling around trying to get out of the toilet bowl.”
The nurse did her best to calm the patient. She explained to the teen that now that the tapeworms were out of her body, she would make a full recovery and be totally fine. However, it remained unknown how she got such a terrible infection.
Turns out, the girl’s mom purposely gave her tapeworms. “We were wondering how did she get those tapeworms, and then you saw the mom turn white,” Cabral-Osorio recalled. “The mom was apologizing to the girl. It’s like ‘I’m so sorry. You know, I did it just to make you a little skinnier. You needed some help before we went on to the pageant.’” The mom said that she didn’t give her daughter live tapeworms but pills with tapeworm eggs. Gross!
It’s unclear whether there were any legal ramifications of what happened. You would think that what this mother did was child abuse and should be reported to authorities, but it’s unclear whether that was the case. Hopefully the girl got away from the mother ASAP.

LG Unveils Gigantic 325-Inch TV For The Most Extreme Home Cinema Ever
I feel like it’s fair to say that I really love TV. Whether it’s streaming shows on Netflix or Hulu or watching what’s actually on terrestrial television (which is occasionally enjoyable), there’s just nothing better than getting immersed into a good binge-watch session, right? If you feel the same, you may want to spruce up (or start) your own home cinema with LG’s new gigantic 325-inch TV that’s probably bigger than any wall in my apartment, but whatever!
It’s literally called The Extreme Home Cinema. LG wasn’t playing around with this bad boy, offering an insane 325 inches of TV goodness at its widest. It has Direct View LED technology and it can even be customized to be a bit smaller if it won’t quite fit your space but you want the same features. “Available in various sizes and performance levels, LG’s home cinema displays take the guesswork out of configuring which DVLED screen is right for you,” the company says on its website.
There’s literally nothing more you could ever want from a TV. You’re not just getting a really big screen here. LG has created the Extreme Home Cinema to offer “2K to 8K configurations with screen sizes from 108″ to a show-stopping 325″, these solutions come with virtually everything you need, except the popcorn.” I’m sold!
This one isn’t for us commoners, I’m afraid. As you can probably imagine, you’d likely need to live in a mansion and be super rich to be able to have the space for it and the money to buy it in the first place. After all, a 325-inch TV doesn’t come cheap!
LG hasn’t actually said how much the Extreme Home Cinema will cost. However, if you want a little hint, just getting one installed and purchasing the warranty and support costs $30,000, so that should tell you what you’re in for.
12 Definite Signs He’s Faking The Relationship
It seems like he’s head over heels for you but there’s something that just feels slightly off and you can’t help but feel like he’s not as all-in on you as he claims to be. It’s a scary thought that the guy you’re totally nuts about could be faking his feelings for you. Is he lying? Here are 12 red flags he’s not the guy you thought he was.
He’s mirroring you too much.
When you chat with him, do you feel like he copies your body language? Mirroring is when your body language matches that of your partner and it happens naturally. It signals that you’ve got chemistry. If it feels like the guy’s always noting your body language and tweaking his to match yours, he might be trying too hard to forge that connection.
He tells you you’re number one, but…
While he might say that you’re his main priority, if his actions don’t match his words then those are what you should be concentrating on. It’s no good to be told that you’re loved and his number one when he’s never around when you need him.
He’s a better boyfriend in public.
When his friends or family members are around, does he seem to treat you with more love and care than when you’re alone? It’s clear that he cares more about the image of your relationship than what it’s really like.
He’s tagging you on social media daily.
While it’s great to feel that your boyfriend is proud of you and wants to show off how gorgeous you are or how happy you both are by posting your images on social media, you don’t want to feel that he’s putting too much attention online and not focusing on your relationship in real life.
He surprises you.
And not in a good way! You might discover things about your partner that you didn’t even know, such as that they love mountain biking or aren’t completely against the idea of an open marriage. When this happens, you might feel like your partner’s hiding a huge chunk of himself from you, and it’s not a good feeling.
He never steps into the ring.
When you and your boyfriend have an argument, do you feel like you’re always the one who has to apologize or try to resolve your dating issues, meanwhile he’s not the type to do this? It’s like he doesn’t want to resolve problems or make the relationship better, which tells you that he’s not really committed to the relationship.
He never stops and thinks about the future.
When you try to dream about your future with your partner, he might shut you down or be pretty vague about it. This is alarming because you might feel like you’re in a dead-end relationship with no future prospects.
He never talks about the real stuff.
While you guys can talk about light topics ad nauseam, he never actually wants to get deep when it comes to real, serious issues. This is problematic ’cause you might feel like he’s just with you for the good times.
He’s quick to hit the eject button.
When the going gets tough, he’s quick to want to exit the relationship. He might threaten to end things and walk away. This doesn’t feel like he’s in the relationship for the long haul, and he’s clearly not.
He’s the best boyfriend in the bedroom.
Does it feel like your sex life is fantastic but your relationship doesn’t quite match up? It could be because he’s mainly focused on having amazing sex with you instead of building a real future with you that thrives inside and outside of the sack.
He’s always muddling up his words.
When you talk about your relationship or relationships in general, your boyfriend doesn’t really give you clear, concise words. He might waffle, get tongue-tied, or contradict himself so that by the end of the conversation it feels like you’re confused. If this is what’s happening, then the guy is being dodgy.
He’s not chasing you.
If your boyfriend pulled out all the stops to chase you and make you his, now that you’re together does it feel like he’s not that keen on keeping you around? He might seem lazy, like he’s not really putting in lots of effort or he’s making you do all the work. The guy is coasting, and that could be because he’s not invested in the relationship.

Woman Uses PowerPoint Presentation To Tell Parents She’s A Stripper
Telling your parents that you take your clothes off for money isn’t easy, which is why it’s important that when you do break the news to them, you do it in the right way. A woman named Lex came up with the perfect plan, creating a PowerPoint presentation to not only let them know that she’s a stripper but to preempt any questions or concerns they might have. The special moment was captured on video by her sister, Sami, and uploaded to TikTok, where it’s garnered more than 11 million views and counting.
Lex had it all planned out perfectly. She started by telling her parents that the secret she’s sharing only affects herself and her own life and that she’s not pregnant or in danger. That alone seems to be enough to quell the immediate concerns her parents may have had.
When she breaks the news, they take it really well. Finally, Lex reveals big secret: “I’m a stripper, as in I pole dance, and I love it.” However, she goes further in answering some FAQs to put their minds further at ease.
It’s a safe environment and Lex is there by choice. In the clip, Lex explains that she loves being a stripper because it lets her express herself in a sex-positive environment. She also said that she loves the theatrical performance element of being a stripper. “It’s one of the funnest jobs I’ve ever had so I just wanted to share that with you because you deserve to know and I didn’t want you to worry so that’s why I had the FAQs,” Lex told them.
Lex’s parents’ response was the stuff of dreams. Instead of freaking out or condemning her, they actually voiced their support and appreciation for their daughter’s honesty. “I really appreciate you being forthright and sharing your life with us and I’m glad you’re powerful”. She then gave her a high-five,” her mom said. The only question her dad asked was how much money she was making. They’re the best!
