Ex-NBA Player Jason Maxiell Admits To Cheating On His Wife Their Entire Relationship And Sleeping With 341 Women [Video]

If you watched Basketball Wives, you’re familiar with the struggles Brandi and Jason Maxiell have been through in their marriage. Brandi talked about her husband cheating on her on the show but no one knew the extent until the couple aired out all of their dirty laundry with life coach Iyanla Vanzant recently, not even Brandi.

In the scene above, Jason admits to cheating on Brandi throughout their entire 17-year relationship. Brandi was aware of that, but what she didn’t know is that Jason has slept with over 50 different women during their eight year marriage.

Jason has slept with 341 women in his life, but denies that he is a sex addict.

Brandi is understandably shaken up by the revelation of 50 women. She thought that number was closer to eight women and Jason appeared emotionless as his wife held back tears.

Iyanla asked Brandi why she would stay with a man with such reckless disregard for their union. Brandi quickly answers it’s because she said “I do.”

Will Jason and Brandi be able to save their marriage? Should they even try? Let us know in the comments.

‘Bachelorette’ Recap: Becca Admits She Sympathizes With Arie

Becca Kufrin admitted during the Monday, July 9, episode of The Bachelorette that she sympathized with ex-fiancé Arie Luyendyk Jr. Plus, one man shocked Becca by revealing that he is a virgin.

Husband Material

Blake freaked out as he waited to get a one-on-one, but once he did receive the date card, his doubts calmed slightly. Becca was open with him about caring for more than one man at this point and shared that she related to Arie’s plight. “In a way, like, I do sympathize with Arie because I couldn’t understand how you could feel so strongly for multiple people,” she explained. “And I see just how difficult it probably was for him at the end.” Blake was hurt that Becca was feeling this way about other men, though.

After telling Becca about the affair that led to his parents’ divorce (his mother left his father for Blake’s high school basketball coach), he admitted that he was in love with the Bachelorette. Becca gushed to the cameras that she was in love with Blake too and she could 100 percent see him as her husband. “My heart just recognizes his,” Becca confessed after giving Blake a rose.

The 26-Year-Old Virgin

Colton revealed to Becca that he is a virgin during their one-on-one date. When Becca heard the news, her surprise was evident as she replied, “Really?” The Bachelorette even walked out on the pair’s dinner to digest the shock. (She later tweeted that she was just going to the bathroom.) Colton was nervous that this would be a dealbreaker for Becca, but she assured him she would never judge or think any less of him for his decision, although she was privately concerned that Colton hadn’t experienced very much life yet.

Colton told Becca he was not waiting for marriage, just “the right heart” – an interesting statement as his last girlfriend was gymnast Aly Raisman. Becca appreciated that Colton took sex so seriously, and she gave him a rose. Colton saw the bloom as a sign that Becca accepted him for who he is.

Swimming in the Dark

Garrett and Becca exchanged googly-eyes at each other throughout their one-on-one. Becca was slightly worried about just how happy go lucky Garrett always is and wanted to see more depth in their relationship, but she felt positive about their connection.

Garrett later opened up about his ex-wife and how he changed himself to make their marriage work. Becca believed she and Garrett had similar pasts with their exes. She was thrilled when he told her he was beginning to fall in love with her, so she was confident giving him a rose. The couple stripped off their fancy duds and shared a sexy night swim before the date came to a close.

Love Is Not All You Need

Becca only had one rose to hand out on her group date with Leo, Wills and Jason. She sent Leo home early during the date because she didn’t feel like they were at a place where she could meet his family.

While Jason held back, which troubled Becca, Wills told the Bachelorette he was falling more and more in love with her. However, Becca didn’t think she was on the same page as Wills, so she gave Jason the rose instead. Wills was so heartbroken he exited the car on his way home to cry.

The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.

Paris Hilton admits she feels closer to fans than her family as ‘fame is lonely’

PARIS Hilton may be known all over the world – but she says fame has left her lonely.

The 37-year-old socialite says she knows her army of social media fans more than her friends and family and says she’s “becoming accustomed to being f***** over.”

Paris reveals how fame left her isolated and with major trust issues in new doc, American Meme
Instagram

Hotel heiress, Paris, revealed all in new documentary The American Meme which plays at Tribeca Film Festival in New York this month.

She became a household name after her  sex tape, called 1 Night in Paris, leaked online.

Paris also starred in reality series The Simple Life, which ran from 2003 to 2007, alongside Nicole Richie.

After her TV career, she tried her hand at music with her self-titled debut album Paris in 2006.

She also tried acting appearing in numerous films including Zoolander, House of Wax and The Bling Ring.

In a clip of the doc on The Hollywood Reporter, she says: “I’m constantly traveling; 250 days a year I’m on a plane, in a different country. So it gets really lonely sometimes.”

She added: “‘I love my fans just as much as they love me.

“I feel closer with them than I do most people that I know. They’re really like my family.”

The hotel heiress, who is worth £70 million, said: “I don’t really trust people. I’ve just grown accustomed to being fucked over.

There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not either texting or FaceTiming or emailing with my Little Hiltons [fans].

“I can truly be myself around them. I know they’re not judging me, they’re not trying to use me.

“They just genuinely love me.”

Last month we revealed how the heiress was left devastated after nearly losing her £1.4million engagement ring in the middle of a nightclub.


Her 20-carat diamond ring flew off her hand while partying with pals in Miami.

Paris, who was at the nightclub with hubby-to-be Chris Zylka, started a search party for the missing rock, while her fiancé started the search at nearby tables.

She revealed she and Chris are likely to marry THREE times in various global locations.

BEST DEAL UPDATE (UK):

Tesla CEO Elon Musk Admits ‘Humans Are Underrated’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk admitted Friday that the automaker relied too heavily on robots to make its mass-market Model 3 electric vehicle and that so much automation contributed a “production hell” that has persisted for months. So he’s turning back to humans.

Musk initially made the comments to CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King in an interview that aired Friday morning. He later reiterated his thoughts in a tweet.

“Yes, excessive automation at Tesla was a mistake. To be precise, my mistake. Human are underrated,” Musk wrote in a response to a tweet from Wall Street Journal reporter Tim Higgins.

The Model 3, a highly anticipated electric vehicle, has been plagued with production problems since last year.

Tesla’s production problems were revealed in early October when the automaker reported it had produced just 260 of its new Model 3 electric cars in the third quarter, of which it delivered 220. Things improved in the fourth quarter, but were still below estimates. Tesla produced 2,425 of its new Model 3 electric cars in the fourth quarter and delivered 1,542.

Tesla reported in April that it fell short of its target to produce 2,500 Model 3 cars a week by the end of the first quarter. The company produced 2,020 Model 3 vehicles in a week at the end of the quarter.

Part of the problem has been the company’s heavy use of automation, Musk said, noting that the company is working to resolve this problem. For instance, The company scrapped a complex conveyor system built for the Model 3 assembly line.

“We had this crazy complex network of conveyor belts and it was not working, so we got rid of that whole thing,” Musk said in his interview with King.

Other reasons for the slowdown included putting too much new technology in the Model 3 all at once, instead of stages, Musk said in his interview.

But Musk insists that he sees a way out of production hell and expects to hit a target a production rate of about 5,000 units per week by the end of the second quarter.

Malala Yousafzai Admits She Was ‘Nervous’ to Attend Oxford, But She’s Been ‘Welcomed as a Friend’

Malala Yousafzai, the inspiring young woman who won the Nobel Peace Prize at 17 years old for championing girls’ education, is diving into her own at the University of Oxford.

Yousafzai, now 20, met with David Letterman and gave him a personal tour of her new university for his new Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, premiering Friday. She says it was an “amazing experience” to show the seasoned host the “beautiful gardens” at the school as she opened up to him about her story.

“David Letterman has that magic … I felt really comfortable talking to him and he gives you that friendly environment that you can share your thoughts,” she tells PEOPLE. “You can share your ideas from your heart. That’s how I felt.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Yousafzai began her undergraduate studies in philosophy politics and economics last October, and revealed the news in a moving Twitter post, writing, “5 years ago, I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls’ education. Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford.”

“In the beginning, before I joined university, I was really nervous because I was worried about how I would make friends,” she tells PEOPLE. “People knew me already and that was challenging for me to be there as a student and not to be there as a person who’s already known in the media.”

“But once I came, everyone here just welcomed me as a friend and I was just so happy that I am part of Oxford. I am just an Oxford student and I think that’s how they treat me.”

Yousafzai’s name had long been in headlines before she stepped foot on the campus. Along with being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the children’s rights activist released her memoir, I Am Malala, and was the subject of a documentary, He Named Me Malala. In both, she detailed her journey after being shot by a Taliban gunman while she fought for women’s rights and education.

RELATED: Malala Yousafzai Starts Classes at Oxford University 5 Years After Being Shot by Taliban for Wanting to Go to School

Now, she says being a regular student means more to her than the world will ever know.

“It’s a really good experience learning just like other students. It is an amazing time of my life, because I’m getting to know people of my age a bit more,” Yousafzai says.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

“It’s amazing how many young people here are doing incredible and amazing work. Each and every person here has an amazing story and has done amazing things.”

In a 2015 conversation with Emma Watson, Yousafzai admitted that she often felt “really scared” when speaking in school. But she says that’s not the case at Oxford.

“In university, I think they just allow you to be yourself; to explore and engage in things that you want and that you feel comfortable with,” Yousafzai tells PEOPLE. “That would mean, at Oxford, just sharing about what I do and the work that I’m doing for education … I don’t hesitate to share that. I feel more comfortable at Oxford.”

Even with all of her accomplishments and strides — including her Malala Fund —Yousafzai says there is still much work to be done to ensure education for girls everywhere.

“The dream of my life is to ensure all girls can get quality and safe education … that’s why we have the Malala Fund, which is working on that. My goal is to empower local leaders and local activists in their work for girls’ education,” she tells PEOPLE.

“We are trying to reach local activists and campaigners for girls education in Pakistan, India, Latin America, in Nigeria. will continue until we see the last child getting their education and going to a safe school.”

Yousafzai’s appearance on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman will premiere on Friday on Netflix.

50 Cent Admits He Never Owned or Invested In Bitcoin

50 Cent does not, in fact, own or has ever owned any bitcoin.The Queens rapper admitted in court documents that he did not make $ 8 million in bitcoin by accepting the cryptocurrency as a form of payment for his 2014 album, Animal Ambition.

In a court document filed in bankruptcy court, first obtained by The Blast last Friday, rapper Curtis Jackson admitted that he “never owned, does not own, a bitcoin account or any bitcoins and to the best of his knowledge, none of his companies had a bitcoin account from 2014 to the present.”

A third party, Central Nervous, however, did manage the website of G-Unit Records, 50 Cent’s record label from which all his albums and merchandises were sold among other things, bitcoin, the court documents said. Although Central Nervous processed the online sales and accepted bitcoins as payment, the bitcoins accepted were converted to U.S. dollars through Bitpay, and that it was the converted U.S. dollars, not bitcoins, that G-Unit received.

To the best of my knowledge, at no time were any foreign or domestic accounts maintained by me or my business entities to keep either foreign currencies or bitcoin,” Jackson said in the court statement.

The 42-year-old rapper said as long as the publicity he got from the news that he made millions in bitcoin didn’t damage his image or brand, “I usually do not feel the need to publicly deny the reporting” even when the reports are based on “misunderstanding of facts or outright falsehoods.”

When TMZ, a gossip website broke the news in January, the rapper wrote a post on Instagram saying, “I forgot I did that” because he said he had forgotten that he was, in fact, one of the first rappers to accept bitcoin as payments for online transactions.

To prove that he is indeed bankrupt, he had to come clean about the nature of his involvement with the cryptocurrency. View the official court document below:

‘Teen Mom OG’ Recap: Maci Requests Drug Tests as Ryan Admits Heroin Use

‘Tis the season for drama! The Monday, December 11, episode of Teen Mom OG brought us some seriously frustrating drama between Maci Bookout and ex Ryan Edwards as they continued their custody battle over son Bentley, 8, following Ryan’s recent rehab stay.

Ryan’s Still Going Through Withdrawl

The episode kicked off with Ryan, recently out of his 30-day rehab stay, talking to a friend about his recovery. Ryan confessed, “It’s a little tough sometimes. Just trying to get through the withdrawals and stuff.”

Later, Maci caught up with a friend about the friction between her and Ryan, explaining that she’s sending a letter to Edwards via an attorney that explains the stipulations needed for him to visit Bentley. Maci then read her text to Ryan aloud, saying, “I’ll need you to pass a drug screening, hair and urine, at my expense immediately prior to you taking [Bentley] for a visit.” She then added that Ryan had not responded to the text.

The Teen Mom OG crew then checked in with Ryan’s parents, Larry and Jen Edwards. Larry said Ryan’s pre-rehab drug use, “We knew there was something going on. … But anytime we confronted him, we’d get in an argument and he would leave.” Offering some insight into their son’s tension with Maci, Larry added, “We’ve learned what some of the triggers are. … You use Bentley? That’s a trigger.”

Ryan Admits His Drug of Choice Was Heroin

Ryan then consulted with a lawyer over the phone about his custody arrangement. After explaining his rehab stay, the lawyer asked Ryan what his drug of choice was. Ryan responded, “Heroin.” In direct contradiction to Maci’s earlier statement about Ryan ignoring her text, he revealed, “[Maci] won’t even return my phone calls or text messages.” The lawyer then added that Ryan would likely have to pass drug tests in order to get legal visitation with his child.

Amber Officially Dumps Matt

In Amber Portwood‘s world, we got a chance to witness the tail end of her relationship with fiancé Matt Baier as the duo jetted off to L.A. for their Marriage Boot Camp appearance. After arriving back home from the trip, Amber cut ties with Baier for good. She confided in a producer saying, “We went there to help our relationship … and it didn’t go well because he would lie. So I broke up with him one night.”

Amber, who’s now pregnant with new boyfriend Andrew Glennon‘s child, seemed thrilled to be single. “I can talk to anybody I want to, and they can call me,” she said of her dating life. “When you’re single people just come out of the f–kin’ woodwork.” Considering Us Weekly has reported that Glennon met Amber while she and Matt were filming Marriage Boot Camp, we’re sure some serious drama went down!

First Look: The Woman Responsible for Kevin Hart’s Alleged Sex Tape Admits It’s a Money Grab [Photo]

Here’s the first look at the alleged sex tape behind the multi-million dollar extortion attempt against Kevin Hart.

That’s definitely Kevin in the photo — and that’s definitely not his wife. We see why he hurried up and published that apology…it’s only a matter of time before more of the compromising footage surfaces.

via TMZ:

The 4 minute and 47 second video is highly produced, with audio from Kevin on various radio shows as the video rolls.  The video cuts to a bedroom scene where it appears 2 people are having sex on a bed.  You can’t see the people in the bed, but afterward you see a naked man walking in the room and it definitely looks like Kevin.

Now here’s what’s shocking … the extortionist who made the video says says the point is 2-fold … to expose Kevin and to get money.    

“The real reason Kevin Hart orchestrated the Texas Hurricane Relief Fund, this so-called good deed was done to get ahead as he knew this damaging footage was one click away from being exposed as the liar and cheater he is.  Kevin Hart was privy to me wanting to expose him as I have made countless attempts to expose this information to various blogs, in an attempt to also get paid.”

Sources connected to Kevin tell TMZ, whatever happened on the video, Kevin’s hurricane relief efforts had nothing to do with the extortion attempt.

During the video you hear Kevin in interviews talking about being young and unfaithful in his first marriage but now that he’s 36 he’s learned to handle things differently, especially since it’s so easy to get caught.

As we reported, the FBI is on the case and have a suspect.  It’s unclear if they’re looking at the woman who was with Kevin in the video or whether it’s someone who either secretly recorded the encounter or gained access to the iPhone that captured it.

Damn, Kevin.

Instagram mom-of-twins admits her secret to “bouncing back” after babies

by

Carolyn Robertson

posted in Life

Have you ever spotted a skinny mama pushing her baby in the stroller and silently punished yourself for your lingering muffin top? Well, next time – don’t. Australian mom-of-twins Trudi Eade’s recent Instagram post is a much-needed reminder that whatever shape or size your body may be, it is capable of amazing things.

The 27-year-old, who blogs at The Twin Mama Diaries, welcomed babies Jada and Marley in November 2015. Since then, her Instagram feed has been full of photos of her absolutely adorable little ones. It’s also occasionally home to a selfie or two, showing Trudi looking like she has somehow found the secret to the “post-baby bounce back” the tabloids are always talking about.

For the record, Trudi is a pretty fit mom. She is clearly health-conscious, and documents some of her regular workouts, many of which involve her toddler twins, for her 10,000+ social media followers. However, one of her latest posts makes a powerful point about our body image expectations and assumptions.

Ok so I’ve been wanting to share this for awhile now. Almost everyday, I receive messages from other Mums asking me how I look the way that I do. How I got my ‘pre baby body’ back. Here’s the truth ladies – I DIDN’T. I have the excess skin. I don’t have stomach definition the way I used to. My hips are a little wider. I don’t want there to be any misconceptions. My body did not just ‘bounce back’. Now having said that, I work very hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to FEEL good in my skin. I may not ever look the way I did before I had the twins. And you know what? I’m OK with that. I have arms. I have legs. I can see, hear and experience life. My body has done amazing things, why on earth would I punish it? Learn to appreciate what you have. It doesn’t mean you have to stop working for what you want, just show a little self love along the way ?

A post shared by Trudi Eade (@twinmamadiaries) on

Regardless of what we look like, regardless of the number on the scale and whatever scars and signs pregnancy and motherhood have left on our bodies, I think just about all of us have moments when we compare ourselves to others, or to our own expectations, and feel as though we come up short. And it feels awful. It feels awful to look in the mirror and be embarrassed or ashamed. It feels awful to see only our so-called flaws: the stretch marks, the loose skin, the extra pounds.

It just seems that no matter how much lip service we collectively pay to self-love and acceptance, the end goal never truly seems to change. The fantasy is always a “hot” body, rather than a healthy and happy one. That starts when we are teenagers and carries on, even after our bodies have proven their incredible, awe-inspiring worth by carrying and delivering our children.

I think Trudi’s post is a great reminder to focus on what we are capable of, on all of the flat-out amazing, kick-ass things these bodies of ours have given us, and to strive not to be hot enough to look good in a bikini, but healthy enough to one day hold our grandchildren.

Margaret Atwood Admits ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is More Relevant Than Ever

A religious fundamentalist society swiftly takes away women’s autonomy — and their rights to their own bodies. If you think the plot of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale, now widely studied, sounds familiar, you’re not alone: the author agrees.

In response to a fan who tweeted, “I read The #HandmaidsTale for the first time during the Obama administration & even that honeymoon wasn’t enough to make it seem unrealistic,” the author responded, “Yes it does seem like the pause before whatever it is that’s happening now … ”

Atwood’s book, about a woman named Offred who serves as a sexual surrogate to a family that’s having trouble conceiving, will be released as a TV adaptation on Hulu in April.

The author has been vocal about the story’s ties to today’s political climate. In a letter she shared through PEN/America in January, she cautioned against “dictators of any kind.” She began the letter with a quote from the novel: “Freedom, like everything else, is relative.”

Barack Obama Admits He Wrote Some Embarassing Love Letters In College

When FLOTUS Michelle Obama said President Barack Obama has always been “swagalicious,” we were more than willing to believe her.  Look at the guy!

But in a new interview with former senior adviser David Axelrod, the president himself admits he wasn’t always so cool ― and definitely not smooth with the ladies.

Obama tells Axelrod that he was a partier during his time at Occidental College in California, studying social policy and advocating for the anti-apartheid movement through the “haze of a hangover.”

When he moved to New York to attend Columbia University, young Obama left his partying ways behind, becoming “wildly pretentious” and “humorless” in the process. 

“Physically I remove myself from my old life, I go to New York. And it’s true, I live[d] like a monk for three or four years, took myself way too seriously,” Obama says in the podcast, which was released Monday.

Unsurprisingly, monkdom didn’t bode well for Barry O’s social life. 

“I’m humorless, and you know, have one plate and one towel and ― and fasting on Sundays,” Obama recalls. “Friends start noticing that I’m begging off going out at night because I have to, you know, read Sartre or something.”

Obama said that reading through his old journals reminded him just how badly he stumbled with women. 

“Letters that I’ve written to girls [I’m] courting or something, they’re impenetrable,” Obama admits. “I mean, I don’t understand what I’m saying.”

“The [pickup lines] didn’t work, I think, because people were all like, ‘Wow, this guy is just too intense,’” he adds, “I should’ve tried like, you know, ‘Wanna go to a movie?’”

Luckily, POTUS realized a movie date was the way to go before meeting Michelle Obama (née Robinson) in 1989. 

For their first date ― fictionalized in the movie “Southside With You” ― Barack took Michelle to the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by a walk down Michigan Avenue and a showing of Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing.” The future first couple rounded things off with ice cream at Baskin-Robbins.

“He showed all the sides ― he was hip, cutting edge, cultural, sensitive,” Michelle said of the date in a 2012 video. 

Now that’s the “swagalicious” Obama we know today.

Amy Schumer Admits She Got Awkward And Starstruck Around Kimye

Amy Schumer reminded all of us in April why she deserved a spot on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list: because of her epic Kimye prank.

Remember when Schumer threw herself onto the red carpet at the Time 100 Gala in front of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian? Of course you do, but here’s a refresher just in case:

amy schumer

On “The Graham Norton Show” on Friday, the host asked Schumer whether or not the prank made West smile. Schumer confirmed that the “All Day” rapper definitely did not break his usual “sad Kanye” face. But she noted that later on, West did sort of smile at Schumer — while she was nervously lying to his wife.

The comedian told Norton that when meeting the couple during the gala itself, she became completely fake. “You know when you’re in front of a celebrity?” Schumer said. “I become such a flake, I was just saying things I don’t mean.”

“‘You and your sisters, they’re just inspiring,’ just nonsense,” the comedian recalled saying to Kardashian.

West, Schumer said, was smiling during that charade, “but as if you programmed a robot to smile.” It definitely wasn’t this kind of Kanye smile.

OkCupid Proudly Admits It Experiments On People All The Time

Remember last month when everyone hated on Facebook for manipulating people’s moods in the name of science? On Monday, the dating website OkCupid came to Facebook’s defense by admitting that it, too, runs experiments on people.

Let’s just say the reaction wasn’t much better.

Christian Rudder, one of OkCupid’s founders, wrote a company blog post Monday explaining that he and his engineers sometimes play around with people’s accounts to figure out the best way to build the site. In the past, Rudder wrote, that tweaking has included hiding profile text and telling pairs of people who might have made great matches that they weren’t actually good for each other.

Despite the breezy tone of Rudder’s post, lots of people weren’t very happy.

“We noticed recently that people didn’t like it when Facebook ‘experimented’ with their news feed,” Rudder wrote. “Even the FTC is getting involved. But guess what, everybody: if you use the Internet, you’re the subject of hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That’s how websites work.”

Anyone who thinks looks shouldn’t matter is likely to be bummed out by the company’s findings. Back in the days when OkCupid would ask users to rate potential dates on both looks and personality, Rudder’s team decided to hide text in some profiles — the life summaries that the lovelorn toil over for hours — just to see what would happen. They found that people received about the same personality score with or without text. Conclusion: Rating personality was just another way of asking “Is this person cute?”

Another experiment tested OkCupid’s famous matching algorithm, which is supposed tell you, on a scale of 0 to 100, how good a match you are with someone else. The site told some pairs who were bad matches that they were, in fact, great for each other, and it told other pairs who had scored high on compatibility that they weren’t a good fit. OkCupid found that the power of suggestion made people who were incompatible — according to the algorithm, at least — hold an online conversation longer than expected.

okcupid

The argument that Rudder is making on behalf of the rest of the tech industry is that websites need to do this sort of testing to build stuff we like. “Most ideas are bad,” he wrote. “Even good ideas could be better. Experiments are how you sort all this out.”

In June, Facebook published a bit of research that cast some light on its manipulative practices. In a university-approved experiment, the site tweaked some people’s news feeds to figure out what would put them in a bad mood. The paper provoked a national conversation over the secret testing all large websites presumably do.

It’s not exactly a surprise to learn that OkCupid’s data people like to play around with user metrics. In fact, for years OkCupid has synthesized chunks of its data to publish fun, viral blog posts like 2011’s “10 Charts About Sex.”

Still, it’s one thing to look at a bunch of anonymized data and draw conclusions from it, like OkCupid did when it told us the real stuff people white people like. It feels like something else entirely when a dating site that sells itself on the power of its matching algorithm lies to some of its users about that very thing.
