Those of you who are fans of the hit MTV television series Catfish will be fully aware of what the term means but, for those of you who are not familiar with the term, a Catfish is somebody who pretends to be someone else on social media, often forming relationships with people who have no idea that they are not who they are claiming to be online.
So, it was quite shocking to discover recently, that reality television beauty Audrina Patridge had actually been involved in a Catfish ordeal, which could have become very serious indeed. There was a woman online, claiming to be Audrina Patridge, forming a relationship with a man, who fell madly in love with her and decided to track Audrina down.
The fake Audrina Patridge supposedly gave the man the real Audrina Patridge address, which led to the man heading off to meet the woman of his dreams, completely unaware that he had not actually been chatting to Audrina. When the man got to the house, Patridge was not there but her father opened the door to the man, which is when his world came crashing down.
As for the woman who had been pretending to be Audrina Patridge, it is supposedly not the first time that she has done this and, unless somebody finds out who she is soon, it will no doubt not be the last either. This woman is playing with people's emotions and messing with people's lives and something needs to be done about it before it goes way too far and something serious happens.
