    There are a few people on my friends list who make me go, “Whaaaaaaaaaaa….?” I wouldn’t say I keep them around for laughs, but I’m sort of mobidly curious to see sometimes what will happen to people.

    Example: there is a couple on my friends list that used to be friends of Darling Husband. We found out through a mutual friend that she had been cheating on her husband within weeks of getting married with multiple partners.

    How did the friend know? The wife had contracted chlamydia.The mutual friend told this woman that she had a moral obligation to contact the men she’d been with recently and tell them to get tested. She refused, but told the friend that if she wanted to do it herself, to go ahead. The friend contacted all 5 of the recent men and even paid for some of their STD tests, despite the fact that she was not directly involved in this matter.

    The whole thing spun out of control when the wife of course passed chlamydia onto her husband and he found out and confronted her, and she lied and said she was raped and never told him. He believed her and has been vocal about what a terrible trauma this has been, has pushed her to talk to the police (of course she didn’t, since she was lying), and threatened to kill the guy if he ever found out who “raped” his wife. I can’t believe anyone could ever be so low, but I don’t know either of them well enough to get involved and am kind of expecting the whole thing to explode since she’s clearly a habitual cheater and liar, and a terrible person at that.

    I don’t think I’ve got any friends I keep around for the drama, but I do keep people like a guy I met once 5 years ago because he posts interesting tech articles every now and then…My feed is not so exciting.

    @gramgeek:  It wasn’t facebook public until the wife lied about the rape, then it just became a shitshow. 

    @Baroness_Meg:  Yep, I agree. But it’s like a bad car accident on the highway. It’s horrible, and I can’t look away. I know this woman is going to get what’s coming to her sooner or later.

    Oh heck yes. There is one girl in particular who I went to middle school with whose life is just one delicious trainwreck after another. I can’t quit watching. Every once in a while, I consider defriending her… but I just HAVE to know how long her current “true love story” is gonna last before it blows up. And then when that inevitably happens, I take bets with myself on how long it’ll be before the next love of her life pops up (this last time? FOUR DAYS. FOUR. DAYS.)

    ETA: I also feel kinda bad because she’s got FIVE small children (started when we were 17) and yet her entire life is about finding a new man. Not even a new father, just someone to be with. Her husband, the father of all 5, was killed in a car accident when he was driving drunk and the guy she was with after him (on and off for a couple years) was abusive toward her but she kept taking him back.

    It’s all just so… sad and bizarre.

    Yes. Yes I do. My uncle’s sister (hes the man my blood related aunt married) is a hot mess and I do keep her on there simply because her life is like an episode of maury. or maybe jerry springer? maybe both. Just the other day she posted a photo of the paper from the county showing paternity results for her boyfriendbaby daddy and some other girl’s kid with a caption that said “we recieved the great news on our baby izabella’s first birthday that GUSTAVO IS NOT THE FATHER of this other girl, Karla. Her mom is a liar and has been trying for 3 years to pin her daughter on MY MAN. we are so happy!” and then the photo.

    She did something recently where she posted a product and someone said something about it being made in mexico and she goes “no it says made in cancun”….. seriously?! lmao!

    she’s one of those people who posts countless photos that say things like “im a strong woman” “worry about your own relationship instead of hating on mine” blah blah blah. Not to mention the fact that she posted all about all of her visits to gustavo while he spent 2 years in jail (she checked in at the jail every time with a caption of a heart”. The baby she just had is the only one she has custody of out of her 4 kids, the others are with various family members, but all she posts about is the newest baby and how happy she is to have her with gustavo. the other kids are a bit older and have facebook so they see it all. Oh and she posted recently a photo of matching jordans that her, gustavo and the baby got…. right after posting a thank you for the help she gets by having a link card (food stamps)

    its just a hot mess! I just shake my head at everything the girl postsdoes.

    I’ll accept almost anyone I know.  Some people crack me up and I’ll check out their profile more often even though I’m not close to them.  I haven’t seen much crazy drama posted though.

    @MissCalifornia:  I have one of those. it goes something like “oooooh I think I like this one! he makes me feel so good! havent felt this way in a long time <3” and then two days later “on to the next! if you can’t handle me than thats your loss, im a prize”. I just took those word for word two days apart from her facebook.
